Arsenal vs Everton – Betting Tips, Predictions, and Odds

In the Super Sunday clash this weekend, fans will be eager to see a well-performing Arsenal squad play host to the Dogs of War at the Emirates Stadium. Everton will be extremely disappointed after suffering a devastating 3-1 loss against West Ham last weekend who are currently ranked 16th overall in the Premier League. In addition, two new managers, Marco Silva and Unai Emery, will meet on Sunday where they’ll be analysing the implementation of their tactics.

Arsenal: Home Team

It was certainly a doom and gloom situation for Arsenal following their first two matches of the season. On the opening day of the Premier League, Arsenal was outplayed and outsmarted by Manchester City which was followed by an unfortunate 3-2 defeat at the hands of Chelsea. This was certainly not the start fans were expecting, especially due to the recent departure of Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger.

However, although they are experiencing a bad situation, it could have easily turned into a horrible situation if the squad continued to lose important matches and drop points. Thankfully, Arsenal managed to obtain three consecutive victories where they managed to beat Newcastle, Cardiff, and West Ham. The two recent wins by Arsenal were away games and fans will be extremely satisfied with this as most of the away games in the previous season were mostly defeats.

It might only be three matches, but those victories will certainly give loads of confidence to the team which could produce a fourth consecutive win that will improve the squad’s standings in a familiar environment on the leaderboard. Xhaka and Ozil, two exceptional football players, obtained the necessary goals in their most recent game. Hopefully they can produce the same when they face Everton on Sunday.

Everton: Away Team

Underwhelming, Standard, Mediocre. These three words are probably what fans of Everton are thinking when they summarize how their team started this season. They must be optimistic after bringing in Marco Silva along with brand-new signings, but the fact that they only claimed one victory in 5 games doesn’t display a world-class team.

They recently suffered a loss against West Ham at home, which is arguably the biggest shock to fans. It also proves that Everton aren’t anywhere close to where they need to be. They are now travelling to a stadium where they currently have a horrible record and will hope and pray that a great deal of luck will come their way.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Although Everton hasn’t claimed a single victory at the Emirates Stadium, Marco Silva has. In 2015, Silva managed to win as Olympiakos manager and another Arsenal win is currently priced at 11/2.

Arsenal are undoubtably the favourites in this match up as they will attempt to claim their fourth victory which is currently at 4/9. A tie comes in at 18/5. If you interested in winning big money, you can boost your odds by backing Alexandre Lacazette as the player to score first in a 1-3 win, priced at 28/1.

Paris Saint Germain vs Liverpool Betting Tips and Predictions

Although this is only considered the opening group match in the Champions League this season, many believe that this can also be considered a final. Even though Liverpool managed to reach the final during the Champions League last season, the Reds were drawn from pot number 3 and will need to face Red Star Belgrade, Napoli, and PSG as they battle it out to reach the knock-out stages.

Both Liverpool and PSG are experiencing strong starts to this year’s season as both are boasting with a 100% records in Ligue 1 and the English Premier League. Liverpool is slowly starting to convince several critics that this year will finally be the season where they win the prestigious Premier League. Apart from the goals flowing in, their first four league matches have seen Liverpool concede only once.

PSG, on the other hand, is dominating French football, and their first four league matches have all been victorious by at least two goals, boasting with 13 goals in total thus far. The biggest challenge for PSG this season is to reach the knock-out stages of the Champions League finally.

PSG vs Liverpool Favourites and Predictions

The draw for the group stages in the Champions League has produced some captivating matches with Tottenham playing against Manchester United and Barcelona as well as Juventus in the same group. Group C is considered the most difficult task for all teams involved as PSG take on Liverpool, Red Star Belgrade, and Napoli. The match between PSG and Liverpool has all the right ingredients to provide an absolute classic battle. Liverpool has managed to win eight friendly, and league matches and accumulated maximum points during their first 4 Premier League matches to top the table standings. PSG are currently at the top of Ligue 1 with 100% record in their first four games.

They are aiming to win their domestic league, but their biggest wish is to go for glory in the Champions League. PSG has never gone further than the quarterfinals and during the last two seasons, never made it past the last 16 stage, and that’s with Mbappe and Neymar in the squad. PSG has a slight advantage in this incredible match as they are playing at home. PSG has also managed to score three goals in the last six fixtures, and Neymar and Mbappe have eight goals between them.

PSG vs Liverpool Betting Odds

It should come as no surprise that this game will produce loads of sensational goals. The last eight away games by PSG have managed to have a 2.5 goal average, while Liverpool also impresses with ten in the last twelve games in the Champions League which also gives them over 2.5 goals in each match. When it comes to betting odds, you will find that most sports betting sites are favouring Liverpool to win the match at +115, while PSG is at +200 to win the match. There’s also the possibility for a draw at +280.

Madrid Without Ronaldo

There most certainly was a bit of disaster and chatter following CR7’s decision to transfer to Juventus in the Spanish capital, but then the European Champions made an amazing start to this season. Obviously, there are quite a few jokes making the rounds, especially amongst Real Madrid fans, the most common is that since Cristiano Ronaldo left, its finally time to admit that everyone always knew was the truth and that is that the best player in the world is Lionel Messi.

It signifies just one of several humorous narratives surrounding the departure of Ronald, as with most or all gags, it is coping with what had happened in a waggish way, and there is often not an element of truth in it. First, Cristiano was their main man, it’s a fact that can’t be debated by the Bianco’s and now that he left, they make it another story altogether.

What’s Happening to Real Madrid in the Absence of Cristiano Ronaldo

To find out what is happening and what will follow need a step back to look at what life was like when Ronaldo was part of Real Madrid, and he was in the Spanish capital. A Real Madrid legend, who prefer to remain anonymous said 5 years ago that should Ronaldo left, no one would shed a tear, and this was at a time when the Portuguese were at the peak of his powerful career. In some circles, there has always been a sense that Renaldo was someone thinking he was as powerful as the club, a goal mercenary that troublingly thought at times he was actually bigger than the club, which did not go down well with all.

Team Mates were Told to Praise Ronaldo

Between 2010 up to 2013, when Jose Mourinho was the coach, many of the team-mates were told to praise Ronaldo publicly and almost instructed to pay homage to Cristiano, such importance he had in winning their games. Demands like these that removed all chances of a harmonious dressing room atmosphere. Ronaldo only gained and earned the respect of his fellow team-mates when he dared to face up to Mourinho as well as question his authority. Still, when it comes down to team comments, Ronaldo had a diva-like attitude that was always excused via statements that indicated that it was what he is like and Madrid then made a Faustian agreement to permit this individualistic behaviour in order to benefit from his outstanding performance.

Up to now, fellow players had no choice but to accept his whims and ways even though they never liked Renaldo’s antics and truth be told most never liked him. One thing is as clear as daylight, and that is that Ronaldo was not the most popular in the changing room of Madrid, and apart from it all he still did enjoy a very close friendship with Marcelo. With the rest of the team, his relationship was business-like. Ramos might just state it all perfectly when he said thankfully Madrid are free from covering up and overlooking the egotistical and emotional behaviour of Ronaldo. The European champions are doing great, they’ve turned over a new leaf, and it seems they are not missing the record scorer all that much.

In fact, it has been competing uninterruptedly in the Series A league since 1929 since its inception in 1900 after it changed its name to Juventus Football Club. The club has been managed since 1923 by the industrial Agnelli family. The relationship between the dynasty and the club is considered the longest and oldest in national sports, making the Juventus Football Club the first professional sports club in the country.

Giovanni Trapattoni, also referred to as “Trap” is the football manager for Juventus and is also a former footballer who is considered the most successful coach in the Serie A league. As a former defensive midfielder, Trapattoni spent most of his career with A.C Milan, allowing him to win two European Cups and two Serie A league titles.

The Juventus Stadium, also referred to as Allianz Stadium commercially since July 2017, or sometimes simply referred to as the Stadium in Italy, is an all-seater stadium situated in Vallette borough of Turin. It is also the home of the Juventus Football Club. This sensational stadium was built on the site of Torino’s and Juventus’ former home, known as Stadio delle Alpi, and is considered one of the only three club-owned stadiums in Serie A, along with Udinese’s Stadio Fruili and Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium.

The stadium also played host for the EUFA Europa League Final in 2014.

Brazil Loses its Rank of Being the Best Soccer Nation

During Brazil’s most recent match, the team lost hope as they made their way out of the World Cup despite putting their all into their final game. One of the highlight names of the team Neymar showed that he has been putting work in to improve his standing, but even after a series of lacklustre dives and steals, even he couldn’t save the team from being dropped from the competition.

The team put their all into their pursuit of saving their title at the World Cup this year. While they started off strong, the team did not seem to be able to pull through when they needed to the most. Many fans who were at the stadium and watching from home – which to be honest was probably in the thousands as soccer is basically a religion in the country – expressed their sadness due to the outcome of the match.

Despite the copious amount o prayers that fans sent and the hard work the team has put in, Brazil went home against their match with Belgium. Although, the reasoning for this is not because Belgium is filled with super players who are impossible to defeat. If anything, it was because Brazil wasn’t good enough and didn’t play as the needed to secure their spot during the tournament. However, anyone who read the final score of Brazil 1, Belgium 2, would probably do a double take.

Belgium should receive the attention it has though for a handful of reasons though. Compared to Brazil, Belgium has better organization, skills, strategies, dedication, passion, unity, and by the way, the results if the match went, better players who became fierce competition from Brazil.

One of the other hand, Brazil uses its name at its standing. While the team has a legacy which is rightfully deserved, it seems that as of late that’s the only thing the players are riding on. While every soccer fan knows of Brazil’s soccer history, that still isn’t enough for the team to secure a win and a place during the World Cup if their players and management are not up to par. It’s almost an undeniable fact that Brazil has lost some of the twinkles in its eye for one reason or another, which has been seen as the team barely making it to the semi-finals before being destroyed by German in an embarrassing match.

Although, many fans are placing the blame on Neymar, who is also known as being one of the leading faces in the news whenever Brazil is being spoken about. His antics and cockiness that he displayed earlier in the tournament did not cast a favourable option upon Brazil. If anything, it caused many fans to begin rooting for other teams, or other individual players for Brazil instead of the entire team.

Despite the savage loss of winning the World Cup title, Neymar did not show a bit of emotion once the game concluded. The same cannot be said for his teammates who were visually upset by the results. Maybe next season Brazil can get on their A-game instead of relying on their name and history as the driving for of their reputation.

AC Milan Is Barred from Playing for a Season

This news comes as a shock as the Italian Giants has had a relatively successful season this year. Although, they have been banned from participating in the next season as allegations regarding Financial Fair Play regulations being breached by the team. The news is followed after the announcement that AC Milan has qualified to participate in the Europa League after their impressive finish from Serie A.

The UEFA has made an official claim which states that the league, who after spending nearly £200m on player transfers during the previous summer, has breached the rules that require the club to break even. Despite the claims and the punishment, the league has stated that they are making plans to appeal this claim to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to hopefully be allowed to play in the upcoming season as they originally had planned. According to a twitter update by the official club – has alluded that the running by UEFA was not completely fair nor based on all of the facts.

Another official statement from AC Milan stated that they are ready to be redeemed from the previous errors that they made by paying the consequences, although, despite having respect for the rules and regulations, the team still expects that they should be treated with the same level of equality. On Wednesday, the club did release their legal team to review the case, appeal it, and ask for a prompt response from the court.

What Were the Sanctions that AC Milan had?

AC Milan has a unique history as the club was initially owned by Silvio Berlusconi, an Italian Prime Minister until 1986 where it was then sold to a Chinese association for a whopping 740 million euros in the summer of 2017. Since then, the club was recorded going on an unusual spending spree to bring in the best players the club though was needed to ensure success. Starting off with Leonardo Bonucci along with Andre Silva – thus creating history as it was the first time in 16 years that the club willing broke the £30m cap for transferring players.

The issue began to arise as the UEFA stated that there were still remaining uncertainties that has been investigating the finances of the club. The origin of these doubts was formed from the suspicions of not being able to refinance a loan that is expected to be paid back in October of 2018. Which causes concern as the financial fair play rules were created to avoid any of the clubs from creating an unpayable debt which can be punished if the team if proven that they are spending more than they are bringing in.
AC Milan Reaction

The figureheads of the club have stated the spending was done in order to create a new and renovated squad that will improve their chances. Although, the investment to bring in younger players does come as the cost as the first team’s salaries before the transfers were rated to be around less than 60%. Milan has also mentioned that the investments are going towards more than just finding younger players. Instead, some of the investments have gone towards the training groups as it is planned to host a women’s team in the upcoming season. The club finished by stating that these invests are necessary as they will improve Milan’s impact in the football world.

Steve Holland, the assistant manager, carried a note on the first training day that disclosed that the team was arranging to play against Panama in a 3-5-2 formation, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield. What was most surprising is the fact that the note had Marcus Rashford in attacking rather than Sterling.

Will Panama’s Gomez Work His Magic on Sunday?

Gomez is known for guiding the Colombia team to the world cup in 1998, Ecuador to the 2002 tournament and there is little doubt that he will be working his magic on Sunday. Panama has reported no injuries, in a country known for boxing champions and baseball players, the world is waiting to see what could happen in its first trip to the world cup.

Gomez says his only hope is that the team will be a dignified rival, his wish is for fans to enjoy the game instead of criticising it or destroying the dream achieved by Panama. He is confident that the team knows what they are up against on Sunday.

Pre-match Predictions for England vs Panama

When the fans were asked to make a prediction for the upcoming game on Sunday the score prediction, in general, came to Panama 0 England 4. Could it be that Panama has a magic trick up their sleeve? Panama limited the damage in its friendly match against Demark to 1-0 in March and have experimented with at least five defenders.
Gomez says they know what they are up against and England have struggled before to break down a good defensive team. But once they get that first goal in you can expect the floodgates to open.

Manchester United Sign Best Young Full-Back in Europe

Manager Jose Mourinho announced earlier this week that Manchester United has signed a five-year contract with the best full-back in Europe. This season, Diogo Dalot played against Liverpool in the Champions League. He also played for Portugal previously in it’s under 15 to under 21 level, and in October he made his Porto debut.

Diogo Dalot said he simply could not turn down the opportunity of playing for the biggest club in the world. The Red Devils paid Porto £19 million for Dalot who came through the youth ranks and played in the 0 -0 draw, in March. Now, expectations are that he could offer competition to Antonio Valencia the captain of United.

Dalot Has All Attributes to Become A Great Player

Mourinho says Dalot is the best full-back in his age group in Europe, about to become a great player since he is an extremely talented defender. He feels Dalot has all the attributes a full-back requires including technical quality and tactical intelligence. He also has a Porto academy mentality which means his preparation on a maturity level need by professional players.

Mourinho is determined to do what it takes to get closer to a Premier League battle next term with champions Manchester City, and therefore he needs to strengthen his defence. The transfer hastens the exits of Daley Blind, the Netherlands defender as well as Matteo Darmain since neither had a long-term future under the watch of Mourinho.

United Pays €47 Million for Fred, Brazil’s Midfielder

On Tuesday, United announced another agreed deal worth £47 million for Brazil’s midfielder Fred. The midfielder, 25- years of age, moved to Europe in 2013 and Shakhtar won three league titles with his help.

Willian, Chelsea winger believed that Fred will be hugely successful in England since he played for Shakhtar from 2007 to 2013. That is expected to pay dividends for the team once he joins the squad and begins to help Manchester United win games.

There’s been a bit of controversy in Fred’s career, at the end of 2015, banned for a year due to positive testing to diuretics, which backdated to tests carried out in June. Luckily for Fred, the suspension applied only to games sanctioned by the football federation Conmebol in South America.

Tim Vickey, a South American football expert, feels that Fred could be a mini version of Fernandino, the midfielder for Manchester City. Everyone agrees that Manchester United is getting two of the most exceptional players for their money and fans are excited to see the team in action after these player additions.

Ashley Young Insists England Going to Russia World Cup To Win

Ashley Young, one of the squad members of England’s World Cup team, is insistent that the last thing England will do is restrain the ambition they have towards attempting to win the World Cup slated in Russia this summer.

The squad is twenty-three men strong and is experienced in what it takes to win a match in a tournament. As for Young, he is looking forward to playing his World Cup, as are other members of the team.

Young’s comments come after Kyle Walker said it would be a miracle if England were to win this year’s World Cup, but for Ashley Young, a positive approach to camp is what is needed as the head to St George’s Park to play a friendly game against Nigeria at Wembley.

Commenting at a news conference, Young said,

“To be honest, I don’t think you go into a tournament not trying to win it and that’s exactly what we will be doing.”

After hearing Young’s comments, Manchester’s Walker said,

“At times you need luck, sometimes you create your own luck. But you don’t go into a tournament thinking ‘right, we’re going to get only this far.’ You go into a tournament wanting to win it and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing.”

A Young Squad with Few Seasoned Veterans

The 23 man roster for England’s World Cup squad is new to this level of competition and only one, Gary Cahill, has been to a World Cup match. Cahill was on the squad that participated in the World Cup in Brazil. England failed to move beyond the group stage after they lost to Uruguay, Costa Rica and Italy.

Young, who is the team captain for Chelsea is set on having a better performance this year and believes much relates to the mental mindset of each player. Young in a recent interview stated,

“My advice would be to go and play their football and relax in the environment as much as you possibly can, to get the best out of yourself, said Cahill. It’s a very intense environment, but it’s something you should embrace.

He further added that many on the team have years ahead of them in soccer but that you not take that mindset instead play like it is your last day at the races. For Cahill, he just wants to enjoy the tournament to the fullest adding,

“Enjoy means go as far we possibly can. Enjoy means by winning games. That’s the only way you enjoy it.”

At the age of 32, Young’s days ahead, at least for future World Cups is fading fast. This is expected to be his last World Cup appearance and had hoped he would earn a spot on the squad heading to Russia to represent England.

“I just had to get out there and play football and play as well as I could and hopefully the England manager would come and call me up again,” he said. “Now he’s done that and I’m going to a World Cup and the excitement for me is massive.

There are concerns that possible racism incidents may overshadow the World Cup in Russia as there are substantial reports of racism in Russian football. Earlier in May, the FIFA fined the Russian Football Union 30,000 Swiss Francs as a result of racist chants from fans during a match in St Petersburg. For Ashley Young, he simply hopes FIFA will be able to deal with it should anything come up.
