Empoli vs Atalanta

In a meeting of the fifth round of the Serie ?, the team of Empoli is going to welcome Atalanta. This is the latest date in the intermediate range, before which Empoli was on the 14th position, while Atalanta is on the 12th place. Here is our soccer forecast.
Empoli and Atalanta started the season poorly and for the past four rounds, both teams managed to have only one victory. The home team is pretty desperate right now and it will be one of the major teams that will fight for survival in the current season. The team, managed by Marco Dzampaolo is one of the worst defenses in the League and earned per game in at least two goals at their door. In the past fourth round of the Serie A, Empoli had its first win as a guest since the beginning of the campaign, after beating Udinese with 1:2 with a fair amount of luck - defeated goal in the 92nd minute and kicked a man from Udinese.
Atalanta allowed only one loss so far, but far from home, the team is not too convincing. This is probably the only problem of Atalanta in the upcoming duel, though the team is much classier than Empoli and owns several good players into the face of Hermann Dennis, Raimondi, Morales, Stendardo and others.
Against each other Empoli and Atalanta have played a lot of times as the latter four of which we`ve seen dominance of Empoli - 2 draws and 2 wins. Their last meeting here ended in a goalless draw, but history remembers a fairly effective fight, as we expect to be present.
Our soccer prediction adviced by sport-tips.net is over 2.5 goals.

Ajax vs Celtic

Ajax is going to welcome the team of Celtic at Amsterdam Arena in a meeting of the group A of the Europa League. Here are our soccer picks according soccercapper.org for that event.
Ajax removed the Czech Jablonec with the total score of 1:0 in the groups of the tournament. The boys of Frank de Boer gradually have gained speed during the season and launched quite successfully in the local Eredivisie. Ajax is the leader in the standings with 13 points from four wins and one draw. Before the derby with Celtic, the Dutch can boast of good domestic form in the European tournaments. In the last 5 fights at home, Ajax has won four and lost only 1 - this season in the UEFA Champions League by Rapid Vienna with 2:3. The derby with Celtic will be missed by Bazoer because of a penalty. In its absence, Frank de Boer will bet the scheme 4-2-3-1 with Lasse Sone who will operate behind a sole striker. The dilemma for the coaching staff of Ajax is the one to lead the team. Milik Arkadius will be the titular, but in the weekend Victor Viser entered as a reserve and scored two goals, which may well give him the titular place against Celtic. The left back of Ajax - Mitchell Deeks returned to the starting lineup after missing the weekend derby with Twente.
Celtic dropped from Malmo in the playoffs of the Champions League and so ended up in the Europa League group tournament. The start of the season for Clovers is not very successful, and after the failure against the Swedes, they have problems and in the Scottish Premier League. Celtic lost in the weekend visit of Aberdeen with 2:1 and found itself on the second place with five points behind the dons. Before the visit to Ajax, the team of Ronnie Delia appeared in pretty unpleasant form in the visits in Europe. Celtic has won only two of their last 15 visits to the tournaments, and now is arriving on the forbidding Amsterdam arena. Ronnie Delia won`t make many changes in the team, as the only places of Mulgrew, Lustig and Bleket are questionable. In the camp of Clovers, there are no problems with injured or suspended players.
Ajax is moving into pretty good shape and certainly is the favorite in the derby. Celtic in turn has serious difficulties in their subsequent appearances in Europe and definitely there will be some serious problems in the Amsterdam Arena.
Our soccer prediction is 1.

Villareal continued its good start in La Liga and in the third round, where it defeated Granada as a guest with 3:1. 'Yellow submarine` has had no defeat in the Spanish elite, yet and the game was solved with two quick goals after the break.
The midfielder Manu Trigeros was at the heart of the success, as in the 49th minute opened the scoring. Samu Kastijeho sampled left by the attack and left the ball for the penalty box before Trigeros. There was a kick-off at the bottom right corner, which was beyond the goalkeeper.
Two minutes later, the hosts` defense led to a mistake, in which the ball was given as a present to Trigeros. He without delay went to Cedric Bakambu before the penalty, and it was not difficult for the latter to score for 2:0.
Comic appearances in defense of Jean-Sylvain Baben got back Granada`s hopes of a quarter of an hour before the end. The player reacted very poorly to the series in the penalty area and delivered a ball of Fran Rico, who with a right foot shot Alphonse Areola.
In injury time of the match, Villarreal put the point of the dispute through the reservation, which formed the final according footballcapper.org 3:1.

Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Hamburger

Borussia Moenchengladbach is going to welcome the team of Hamburger in a meeting of the fourth round of the German Bundesliga. Here is our soccer prediction.
Borussia Moenchengladbach started pretty lame this season in the Bundesliga. Colts recorded three defeats by Borussia Dortmund (4:0), Mainz 05 (1:2) and Werder Bremen (2:1) and available at the last 18th place in the standings. In view of the poor performance and the problems that there are with some key players of the team manager, Lucy Favre will resort to some changes in the team. Martin Strancl will be launched as a holder in the center of the Defense after a five-month absence through injury. Lars Stindl will replace in midfield penalties Granite Jacks. Azhar will appear in the attack of Borussia Moenchengladbach at the expense of Patrick Herman, who is injured. Because of injuries, Fabian Johnson and Alvarao Dominguez will miss the match as well.
Hamburger had one victory and two losses in its first meetings. It seems that this season the Dinosaurs won`t be among the strongest teams in the Bundesliga and will rather fight again to remain in the group. Before the visit to Borussia Park, Bruno Labadia has had a few problems with his staff. Jaroslav Drobny will be launched at the door because of the injuries to the other two goalkeepers - Rene Adler and Andreas Hircel. The central defender, Emir Spahic is punished and in its place will appear the Brazilian, Kleber. The weak form of Lewis Holtbi will force Bruno Labadia to leave him reserve at the expense of the new addition Aaron Hunt, for who this will be the official debut with the team of Hamburger. Because of the injuries out of the Dinosaurs are still Artem Rudnevs and Ronnie Marcos.
Borussia Moenchengladbach has a pretty solid stock and place on the bottom in the ranking does not suit it. It`s time to wake up against hosts Hamburger SV and achieve the first win in the Bundesliga this season.
Our soccer forecast mentioned by sport-tips is 1.
