17:30 SJK - KuPS 1 (1.80)
A historical match for SJK takes place Wednesday at the Joppulianvuori’s artificial grass. For the first time in 16 years SJK are playing a Veikkausliiga match at home. And they are top motivated. Their head coach Simo Valakari & First team coach Chris Cleaver have stated that this is the biggest match in many years for SJK, and they will do everything to win it. Last year’s winners of the Ykkonen league (2nd tier in Finland) have proved they are not just a small team. They won the Finnish Liigacup this season, where they knocked out teams like HJK & VPS. SJK is no ordinary team in Finnish football, they have big ambitions, and have also spent a lot of money to strengthen their squad. They have brought in goalkeeper Ville Viljala from JJK, defenders Felipe Aspergren (FC Inter), Zeljko Savic (FK Indija Serbia), midfielders Hector Garcia (Real Aviles B), Carlos Lopez (UD Ibiza), Juho Lähde (FC TPS) Marco Matrone (FC Haka), and attacker Jussi Aalto (Fc Haka).
KuPS have had a terrible start to the season with 2 loses, and a score of 2-7. They are right now last, and club has had intern problems. They will miss captain Miikka Ilo who got a red card vs Jaro, and he will be suspended for two matches. I believe it will be a memorable day for SJK, and that they will win. GL!
19:50 Al Hial- Sepahan 1 (1.90) Win
Just after a well-fought 2-1 win over Al Jazira, with which Al-Hilal lift their third trophy of the season, the Saudi team now wants to add the continental competition success to their list. Sepahan play good football and despite that Al Hilal didn’t deserve to lose in the previous match against them, it was a good advise to the Saudi team. Sepahan have several injured players and there will be late fitness test for them before the match. Sepahan play good football but Al Hilal didn’t deserve to lose in the previous match against them, it was a good advise to the Saudi team and revenge is ready.
17:00 V.Novgorod - FK Rostov 2 (2.00)
Counting all the competitions, Novgorod is in a row of thirteen consecutive defeats! An they are not losing the game due to lack of luck or something like that. The results are clear...
14.04.14 PRI V. Novgorod Din. Moscow 0 : 5 07.04.14 PRI Lok. Moscow V. Novgorod 3 : 0 31.03.14 PRI CSKA Moscow V. Novgorod 3 : 0 22.03.14 PRI V. Novgorod Tomsk 0 : 1 16.03.14 PRI Kazan V.

... and as we can see, the problems in defense are quite evident. They have 57 goals conceded in 25 games, having the worst defense of the league. To increase their problems for today's game, they will miss two key defenders: Simion Bulgaru and Marcin Kowalczyk, both suspended.
FK Rostov is in opposite form, with just one defeat in the last nine games, counting all the competitions. Winning today, they will win little chances of reach a European place in the league, if they fail to reach Europe in the Russian Cup as they are already qualified to the final, where they will face Krasnodar.
The hosts seem not having chances of get the maintenance with such awful performances, and the visitors are really moralized due to their great season. The defensive problems in Novgorod makes me think in another defeat today.
15:00 Wawrinka - Federer 1 (2.20)
Wawrinka will play the final against Roger Federer,Wawrinka has played well at Monte Carlo eliminating the opponents clear with 2-0 in every game he started with Cilic easy win then walkover against Almagro,2-0 against Raonic the canadian has resist only one set against tough Wawrinka and he has dominated today Ferrer beatting him clear with 6-1 in the first set then 7-2 in the tie-break,Wawrinka has serve well and he hit hard the ball letting no chance to his opponents and with a good serve I see him as a winner here.Federer has struggle against Tsonga defeating him with 2-1 but it was a hard game only in the last set Federer has break the french player until then Tsonga was close to make an upset then today in the semi-final played against Djokovic he win with 2-0 thanks to Djokovic who has played injuried and he makes figuration in the field only waiting for the final,he couldn't have the honor to retire from this game until the beginning letting the people to see a boring game with no fun,he was again a clown.Federer is able to win in this final but in my opinion the better form is on Wawrinka and he is ambitious here to win he has everything he needs to win and against Federer is going to be better then a healthy Djokovic.
15:00 Catania - Sampdoria 1 (2.20)
Catania are last in Serie A since many rounds: until now the Sicilians collected only 20 points, 5 less than Livorno and Sassuolo, 8 less than Bologna. After losing 7 games in a row Catania president Pulvirenti declared that it was a mistake to keep some players last summer. He promised to remain in Catania also next season where they will probably play in Serie B but he wants a reaction from his team.
The Rossoblu are very distant from the other teams but they have already met almost all of the top teams. Their main rivals have not. Let's have a look at the football calendar: Catania will face Sampdoria, Verona, Roma, Bologna and Atalanta. Livorno will face Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina, Parma and Udinese, Sassuolo and Bologna will both have to meet Juventus and Fiorentina while Sassuolo have to play also with Milan. Livorno and Sassuolo can not feel much better than Catania while Bologna are not safe.
Two Euros tickets
In Sicily there will be around 20 degrees Celsius and probably a high number of home fans. Pulvirenti decided to sell the tickets at low prices: 2,00 EUR and 6,00 EUR. He must hope that the people from Catania will opt for the match and not for a journey the day before Easter. In this stadium Sampdoria coach Sinisa Mihajlovic obtained 36 points out of 23 games when he was the trainer of Catania in the season 2009-2010. He made a good work in Sicily and Catania avoided relegation that year.
Mihajlovic waiting for Garrone
No doubts also about the work of Mihajlovic this season. With Sampdoria he obtained excellent results and his team was the only one together with Milan (under Allegri) to score twice at Juventus Stadium. He did not have the best Serie A squad available but he made the best use of his players and his team reached 41 points and can now play 5 games without fear as they will not relegate.
Mihajlovic now wants to know if Sampdoria want to maintain his contract until 2015 or if Sampdoria president Garrone will want to follow other projects. In that case Mihajlovic will surely find another important bench in Serie A or abroad.
A new line-up
For this match Mihajlovic has decided to give a chance of play to the players who spent the most of their season on the bench. Eder, Gastaldello and Soriano are suspended, Gabbiadini, Berardi, Sestu and Obiang are injured. Second goalkeeper Fiorillo will take the place of Da Costa in the next games. He has not played a single game in Serie A this season but dont forget the great match he played in Rome in Coppa Italia when he stopped great chances created by Florenzi, Nainggolan and Ljajic.
Also De Silvestri 31/2, Palombo 28/1, Krsticic 27/1 and Maxi Lopez 8/1 will watch the game from the bench. At their place we will see Fornasier, Salamon, Renan and Okaka. Stefano Okaka is also not to be considered a real reserve as he already scored three goals and he was one of the best talents in Italy some years ago.
On the home side Catania will miss two suspended player (Rolin and Rinaudo) plus Almiron and Bellusci. Frison will substitute Andujar and Castro will take the place of Leto. Lodi is confirmed in the midfield, he created a couple of good chances with Milan. Bergessio, Castro and Barrientos are strong when they play all together.
Now, who can trust a team which is last placed and lost 6 in a row? Difficult. True that Sampdoria will have a „B side“ on the pitch but they still have many players who will want to show that they are as good as the regular ones (above all Fiorillo and Okaka).
At the same time, if Catania relegate is a bad result but they can still live with it. If they dont beat a team plenty of reserves this would be a tragedy. I dont risk handicaps or over/under, this is a Catania win for me before the odds will drop down. Correct score: 3-2
Catania: Frison; Peruzzi, Gyomber, Spolli, Monzon; Izco, Lodi, Plasil, Barrientos; Bergessio, Castro. Reserves: Andujar, Legrottaglie, Biraghi, Capuano, Leto, Keko, Boateng, Petkovic. Trainer: Pellegrino
Sampdoria: Fiorillo; Fornasier, Mustafi, Regini, Costa; Bjarnason, Salamon, Renan, Wszolek, Okaka, G. Sansone. Reserves: Da Costa, De Silvestri, Falcone, Rodriguez, Palombo, Krsticic, Lombardo, Maxi Lopez. Trainer: Mihajlovic
Not available: Almiron 13/1, Bellusci 18/0, Rolin 22/0, Rinaudo 13/0 (Catania), Gastaldello 28/2, Eder 29/9, Soriano 25/3, Gabbiadini 30/8, Berardi 5/0, Obiang 27/0, Sestu 1/0 (Sampdoria)
16:00 Huddersfield - Brighton 2 (2.25)
Defenders Lynch ( 26+2 2g) and Clarcke ( 23+1) join topscorer Vaughan ( 10g) in unavailable list. The missing of two regular defenders is another worry for a team already in freefall with only three draws gained in alst nine rounds. Guests seems solved their lack of strenght upfront, with two wins in last two rounds in which scored seven goals, trashing awayleader Leicester in first of these two matches For Brighton, apart longterm injuried Crofts ( 5g), only missings are Orlandi (midf.7+5) and Buckley ( midf. 18+9 3g), while key def. upson ( 41) should be recovered. So, guests can gain the third consecutive win here and enter in promotion playoff zone
20:00 Viborg - Aalborg 2 (1.80)
Viborg had a very poor performance in away clash against Randers last weekend, as the team suffered 3:1 defeat with great ease. They have conceded the first goal at the start of the game with an own goal, while they were 2:0 down after first half hour of the game. Beyond that, they didn’t react, were traveling 3:0 and only managed to reduce the deficit in the delays of the game for final 3:1 result.
In any case, the team didn’t look competitive at all, as they currently stand in quite a tragic situation being at eleventh position with two points below the safe zone, but with just one victory in last thirteen games. They were one of the pleasant surprises in the league, but lost the good form and are now on the verge of getting out of the league. Tonight’s goal against Aalborg will be a positive result, so the team could stay alive in their relegation battle. Home side coach Auri Skarbalius doesn’t have fresh injury or suspension worries, as the suspension of regular defender Gotfredsen has finished and he returns to the starting lineup.
Aalborg, on the other hand, comes from a very positive performance at home against Bronby, as the team won 2:0. They entered the game very strongly and lost some big chances, however after 37th minute they were leading with two goals difference scoring within the minutes and locking the victory.
Beyond that, neither of the teams threatened much and the home side took an comfortable and easy victory without anxiety. With this victory, Aalborg continued with impressive performances as they currently have five victories in a row in all competitions and are first at the table with four points difference to closest follower. They are already favorites to win the title and the target here is surely all three points as the team would get more secure in case of it. Defensive midfielder Wurtz (21/1) is available again, while absent are important defender Dalsgaard (18/2) and striker Jonsson (18/6).
AaB won last four matches vs Viborg
All in all victory of visiting side shouldn’t be questionable either.
16:30 Kosice - Ruzomberok 1 (1.90)
16:30 Kosice - Ruzomberok X-1 (4.50)
17:30 U. Cluj - Botosani 1 (2.00)
U Cluj didn't played great in the last game against Sageata Navodari, a relegation contender, but they were disadvantaged by the referee. U Cluj will be without the first goalkeeper, Robert Veselovsky, who is suspended, he's a decent keeper, but his replacement, Vladimir Niculescu played 3 matches in this season. So, the absence of the slovakian shouldn't be a huge blow for U Cluj. Offensive midfielders Andreas Calcan and Vasilica Cristocea are back in the squad after suspension.
On the other hand, FC Botosani has a great shape and they're safe at the middle of the table. So, for the moment they have no worries about relegation and they aren't so motivated to win this game. No important absences for the away side, while the defenders Andrei Patache and Denis Ivanovs are back in the squad after suspension.
Well, U Cluj it's a team with tradition in Liga I, they have good support from the stands at home and a win it's must needed for they in this game.
12:00 Betis - Sevilla 2 (2.10)
Really strange to see so high odds for away win. Ok, this is a derby, but season of Betis is really a disaster.Last in table, only five wins in the whole season, hosts had a brief period of good results in the beginning of March, but returned immediatly to bad performances with one win and three losses in last four rounds. Hosts remain also with many absences, Salva Sevilla ( midf.14+4 3g), Xavi Torres ( midf.9+1), Vila ( def.11+1), Perquis ( def. 8), Chuli ( striker 4+7), Reyes ( midf.19+2), Nacho ( def.15+1), Matilla ( midf.12+8), Caro Sevilla comes from trashing 4-1 Porto in El, maybe a bit tired, but the strong result show the actual good form of the team. For them only Cristoforo and Cheryshev, not usual regulars are out Fifth on table and with chances to enter in CL qualification place, Sevilla should win this match and odds for away win are dropping everywhere
13:45 Sion - Basel 2 (1.80)
Despite a poor form in previous weeks, Sion managed to pull out a victory away to Lausanne last weekend with a narrow 1:0 result. It was probably the most important victory of the season for them, as it was against a direct candidate in a relegation battle
Only goal was scored in seventh minute by Itaperuna, while the game itself was quite equal in the remaining of the time, with both teams have some chances to score more. Hosts kept the ball more to their feet, but without special efficiency that would get them back in the game. As said, important victory came in the most convenient time, as the players of Sion have now escaped to seven points difference and probably won’t have problems staying in the league. Very important central defender and one of the most important players overall, Vanczak (23/3) is suspended due yellow cards, while defensive midfielder Kouassi (20/0) can’t play due injury.Coach Ponte also can’t count at substitute striker Cisse (5/0).
Basel didn’t manage to progress in the semifinals of the Europa League, even though they defeated Valencia 3:0 in the first leg of quarter final game. They were completely outplayed in the returning leg in Valencia and have suffered 3:0 defeat too, going into the overtime.
Swiss side simply had no flue in the overtime, also being left to play with nine players due to exclusion of Diaz and Sauro and it was easy for the Spaniards to score two goals later on. Despite some fatigue cause of that long game, Basel is expected to be fully determined here as they are running very tight title race together with Grasshoppers and can’t afford to drop points easily, especially not against low ranked table teams. Central defenders Ivanov (11/0) and Ajeti (16/1) are already out for few weeks, while the visitors also miss right back Degen (17/3) and experienced striker Streller (21/10).
Despite few absent players and some probable fatigue, Basel should be too strong for Sion this time, especially as the game means much more to visitors.
12:00 Kasimpasa - Bursaspor 1 (2.00)
An interesting match in süperlig waiting for us.kasimpasa is behind two points only from 4th place,which would mean europe league next season. they having a very attractive team with great offensive players with babel,malki,scarione,büyük,castro,viudez. they try always to attack and playing a nice game.babel was injured last matches,but for this match probably he is back and will start in first eleven. bursaspor on the other side is totally focused for the semifinal 2nd leg match vs galatasaray. first match ended 2-2 and their coach already said that they must think about that match already,not about kasimpasa+ he said we will play vs kasimpasa but will think about galatasaray. sen and kiraz were ill and did not take part in training. i will update you later with absences of bursa. i expect some players not to play this match,because of cup match. all in all i think kasimpasa would be able to beat bursa anyway+now bursa is not focused on this match,i think they will sure win this. odds are great.good luck.
16:00 Celta - Real Sociedad over 2.5 (2.00)
Six rounds till the end of Primera, Celta Vigo is still far away from being safe and achieving their target of salvation, as the team has only five points more than relegating placed Getafe. This means that the team will have to search for points in every game, but will also hardly relegate in case they continue with solid performances as many teams are relegating candidates. They have sufffered easy 3:0 defeat last weekend away to Vallecano, even though the team has more of the ball possession and have created more chances. Hosts were 3:0 up already after sixty minutes, but have stood with a man less in 64th, however visitors from Vigo were unable to respond even then. It was their third defeat in four games, but coming back to home turf they surely want to repeat good performance in previous home game when they defeated Sevilla. Home side have no injury concerns as even forward Charles has recovered in time from nose breaking and will wear protective mask probably starting the game.
Real Sociedad, on the other side, continued race for the European exit this season coming from a 0:4 defeat at home against Real Madrid. The defeat was fully deserved and excepted, but have minimized chances of Real Sociedad to get the fourth position and Champions League exit, having now to struggle for Europe League ticket also. Currently, they are at sixth place with nine points less than Bilbao and only a point more than seventh placed Villarreal which is their only real opponent in the battle for sixth place.
Offensive performances without caring much for the defensive lineup were their trademark this season and this shouldn’t be different tonight. Unimportant central midfielder Esteban Granero (3/0) and right back Daniel Estrada (3/0) should be the only absentees for the visiting side that will be able to field their best eleven this time. Goals are expected here, similar to their first game when Sociedad got the 4:3 victory. Celta can’t afford to lose here and will surely have to attack quite offensive visitors, which generally doesn’t seem to have other tactics but to attack in most of the matches.
