It is tough to defend and opponents do what they have to do,\" said Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo. I think all the referees know in the cases of players like this that they must act immediately to prevent an injury. Sometimes a tackle can cause a serious injury to the player, and that is not fair. Surprisingly, though, he isn't the most fouled player in the Premier League with that painful honour instead going to Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.
Gerard, or Jerry as he was more affectionately known, joined the club earlier this season and became an instant hit with his team-mates and our supporters. He was a larger than life character who brought a fantastic energy and commitment to our club. Although he was only with us for a short time, he will be fondly remembered by everyone associated with Carrick Rangers FC.
Roma have been defeated in 4 of their last 5 games. In those 5 games they have conceded 13 goals. In the Championship, the Italians are still in the Eurozone but I do not believe that they will be here long if they play this bad. I believe that Roma will play offensive today because that is the only way they can hope to continue competing in the Euroleague. Gent is in good form. They have no problems in the domestic championship and are very efficient no matter where they play. They have scored 9 goals in their last 3 away games. That is why I think there will be a lot of goals in this match today
Bayern have also looked reinvigorated going forwards since the departure of Kovac. They have scored a total of 16 goals in their last four competitive games. They have also won each of their last four competitive games by a margin of more than one goal.
Meanwhile, Hoffenheim will also be weakened at the back for this game. Centre-back Benjamin Hübner is expected to miss this game due to injury. Meanwhile, holding midfielder Sebastian Rudy will miss Saturday's game due to suspension.
It is the same situation in this match from Belarusian second league, like it was the case in previous match about who I was wrote few minutes ago. I want to say that both of rivals are very efficient in this moment and that is the very good reason for this bet. Both teams are started very good in this season and when I said that, I mean on fact that Shakhtyor Petrikov is won in first round in league 3-0, while on the other side, Viktoriya Maryina Horka is also won in first round, 4-0. Over is very real here.
Gil Vicente are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in the Primeira Liga and Braga have only stopped their guests from scoring in 20% of their home games, another reason to expect both teams to score this Saturday. Three goals have been scored in 60% of Gil Vicente’s away games this season which ties in well with our prediction for a 2-1 Braga win this weekend.
There is no reason to name visitors as favorite here, even they could be the light closer to the victory. Torpedo is having their youth team solid through the seasons, and at the home field, they are not an easy catch for anyone. Energetyk is like their seniors, with a lot of surprises and having up and down through the all year.
Watford later surpassed West Ham's 3-1 win over Southampton with their stunning victory to boast the Premier League's biggest leap year day win - and the biggest on the date in the top flight since Sheffield Wednesday won 3-0 at Chelsea 28 years ago in the last season of the First Division. That also leaves Hodgson, David Moyes and Nigel Pearson as the only managers to record wins in this niche chapter of the Premier League history books.
Two of Levante's last three home wins have been by a two goal margin (including a 3-1 triumph over Barcelona in early November) and we're predicting another 3-1 success for Paco Lopez' side this Saturday.
Copenhagen haven't tasted defeat in the Europa League so far but also haven't experienced a win since matchweek one, with their 1-0 victory in the reverse of this fixture being followed by 3 straight draws. Their route to the round of 32 is less than secure and they still need to pick up points to keep themselves ahead of both Dynamo Kyiv and Malmo.
UK government's 'green shoots' raise hope for Premier League return The UK government has confirmed a plateauing in new cases in the UK, which will raise the hopes of Premier League fans, but the spokespeople stressed that Britain is still very much \"in the woods\". Stephen Powis, National Medical Director for NHS England confirmed that there had been a \"bit of a plateau.
Arthur also enjoyed some good luck in adding a fourth, sending the ball into the back of the net despite Ivan Cuellar first making saves from Ansu Fati and Messi. It was 5-0 with just minutes remaining as Messi rounded the goalkeeper from an Ivan Rakitic through ball and sent a finish into the roof of the net.
The youngster will join up with Real's reserve team squad once his participation in Brazil's pre-Olympic tournament finishes in February. Local media reports suggests Madrid have paid a transfer fee of around 30 million euros ($33. The move reaffirms Real's move away from 'Galactico' style signings, with president Florentino Perez keen to ensure the club do not miss out on the next global superstar following his failed pursuit of Neymar, who opted to join great rivals Barcelona in 2013.
Everything points to Saturday's game between Watford and Crystal Palace being a similarly low scoring contest, and with that considered, we feel that backing under 2.5 goals to be scored is a smart move based on the available evidence.
In Spain, Deportivo Alaves are hosting Osasuna in a La liga match which will be held at Estadio de Mendizorroza stadium, Vitoria-Gasteiz city. The teams lie close to each other with Osasuna taking position 12 while Alaves taking position 13. Each of them has 35 points after playing 30 matches.
While the hosts could only take a draw back from Luton, they are heading into this clash in fifth place. The Cottagers are just nine points shy of the top two, so their automatic promotion ambitions remain alive. They have a strong home record backing them up, with three wins in their last four at home. That includes a headline victory over Leeds, another impressive result inspired by their top scorer.
These two sides have played to three draws in their last four meetings and going to this game, one aspect we expect to play out is the defensive discipline in the two sides. Vitoria have the third best defence in the league, while Sporting have conceded two or more in just five of the last 15. Meanwhile, these two are not the best scorers in the league and Vitoria Setubal are the side with the least goals this season. Moreover, four of their last five meetings have yielded under 2.5 goals and we have reason to believe this will be another low scoring match. We will pick on Under 2.5 goals as our bet here.
The hosts are in full fight for gaining promotion to the first league level and are one of the top teams in the league especially in home games where they do score plenty of goals and have defeated much better opponents than the guests here by a couple of goals difference this season and I fully expect the home win to happen here but I want more from this fixture and will even take the hosts to win this one by at least 3 goals difference as there is a big difference in terms of form between these two sides at this moment in favor of the hosts.
