- Analysing the top teams in the group stage of the UEFA Nations League
The UEFA Nations League’s group stage is over, and it has definitely brought with it many disappointments, surprises and revelations. A total of 55 teams had competed and now the competition moves to the semi-finals stage which is to take place in June next year. The four semi-finalists are- England, Portugal, Netherlands and Sweden.
From the conception of the UEFA Nations League, some have been sceptical about how worthwhile the tournament was. Many have raised the question of whether the competition was a successful creation or just a collection of hyped friendlies. However, looking at the competitiveness that has been displayed, we are of the opinion that it has in fact been successful. For example, a team like the Netherlands which had supposedly lost its place in international football, has upped the ante by beating the World Champions France by two goals.
This group was topped by the Oranje after they overpowered Germany and favourites France. The second match against the French was predicted to be an equal affair with both teams to score. However, this was not to be, as the French attack could not match up to the link up of play by the Dutch team. The Netherlands’ final game in the league against the Germans saw them come back after trailing by two goals to secure a draw and that too in the dying minutes of the fixture. Such a result is a break away from their previous performances which have been quite poor. Young and reliable players such as Mathijis De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong stepped up their game while players like Geoginio Wijaldum and Memphis Depay got back to form.
The Swiss had one of the most impressive comebacks in international football against a mighty Belgian side to secure the top place. In their final fixture against Belgium, they were down by two goals at the 20th minute; however, they ended winning the match 5-2. This match saw a stellar performance from the Swiss hero Seferovic who put three goals into the net. Despite the Belgians being clear favourites and having a much better team on paper, their defence collapsed in the hands of the Switzerland.
It was not surprising that Portugal grabbed the first place in this group. They were by far the best team in this group. Despite missing the presence of their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo against Italy, Andre Silva stepped up to help the Portuguese secure a victory. This game saw the Italians with an absence of a striker of quality. Their mid-field was also mediocre and their defence was not even close to the line-up that they had in the past. The odds for the next stage are highly in favour of the Portuguese and England at 11/2 and 9/1 respectively.
These odds are crucial if you want to make some smart bets on the tournament. Football betting, like any kind of sports betting requires knowing as much as possible about both the game and the players of any particular match. This way, any bet you make isn’t just a crap shoot but is a smart, strategic decision that should hopefully pay off.
It’s also crucial to know how sports betting works, before placing any money on a team. One can go here to check out how to bet on the UEFA Nations League but the fundamentals of any sort of sports bet are the same. Betting on the favourite to win is a smart and safe bet but putting your money on the underdog may be riskier but the rewards are often far higher. In this particular match the odds are closer than many so the payouts probably won’t be great but the risk of betting on either team is fairly small, with England bringing in slightly higher rewards and Portugal being just a bit safer.
It was without doubt that this group was the most exhilarating one as the teams were strongly contending to secure the top place in the group or had the possibility of relegation before the commencement of the final match day. Initially, the Spanish were the favourites after having beaten both England and Croatia. However, England’s second leg triumph with a 2-1 victory saw a change in group. Finally, England came out at the top after securing a 2-1 win against Croatia despite initially trailing by one goal. They are now definitely favourites to go on to win the competition. In the group stage Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford displayed impressive performances for England and this gives them hope, especially after the loss in the semi-finals in the World Cup.Continue reading →

1- Manchester City
Manchester City is one of the top favorites to win this season’s Champions League. After suffering an early defeat against Lyon, City has been performing greatly since then. They topped their group and easily qualified for the next round.
Last season, they were absolutely unstoppable on the domestic front. They collected an incredible 100 points on their way to winning the Premier League trophy. While they easily outclassed Arsenal to claim the Carabao Cup.
Nevertheless, Guardiola’s side was uninspiring on the European front. They lost quite badly against Liverpool at Anfield and later lost the match at Etihad as well to go out of the competition.
It looks like Guardiola is more prepared this time. He didn’t let Liverpool win again the last time he visited Anfield. He changed his strategy and came away with a single point from Anfield where he had suffered back-to-back defeats previously. Their midfield can boast of players like Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Fernandinho. Their forwards Aguero, Sterling, Sane and Mehraz are world class players as well.
Liverpool are also good contenders for the Champions League this season. They were last season’s finalists. To make it to the finals, Klopp’s side bested teams like Porto, Manchester City, and Roma. Unfortunately, goalkeeping mistakes and bad luck cost them the final against Real Madrid.
Liverpool has signed a world-class goalkeeper this year- Alisson Becker from Roma. Their midfield is much improved with the new arrivals Fabinho and Naby Keita. While they have the amazing attacking trio of Salah, Firmino, and Mane.
Salah was struggling to score initially this season, but now he has got his form back. He scored the solo goal against Napoli in the all-important Champions League match and scored a brilliant hat-trick against Bournemouth in the Premier League. Klopp can afford to rest his main forward players because he has Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge in the team.
Klopp’s team is already giving a very tough competition to Manchester City in the Premier League. In fact, they went one point ahead of Manchester City after Guardiola’s side suffered a defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Like Manchester City, Barcelona dominated on their domestic front last season. There was almost no competition for them as the Catalans easily won the Liga title and the Copa del Rey. And like City, domestic success didn’t translate into European glory for them.
It was a huge shock for Barcelona fans when their team went out of the competition after registering an emphatic 4-1 victory against Roma in the first leg of the quarter-finals. Roma thrashed Barcelona 3-0 at Stadio Olimpico to knock them out of the competition.
So far, Barcelona is performing very well this season. Placed in a relatively difficult group which included Tottenham, Inter Milan, and PSV Eindhoven, they easily topped their group and proceeded to the next round of the Champions League. Even when depleted of their full strength, Tottenham couldn’t get the victory against them at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi is still performing very well for the team while Philippe Coutinho and Luiz Suarez are also in great shape.Continue reading →
- Most common betting markets in soccer that you should be aware of
Soccer can easily be termed as the most popular sport in the world. It continues to be amongst the top earners for any sports book of the world. If we talk about the top-rated fixtures in the football’s calendar year, some betting sites go to the extent of offering over 200 different bets on a single match.
With the US getting the go-ahead on sports betting by its Supreme Court, the volume of soccer bets will only increase in the coming times. The types and number of soccer betting markets offered by sports book these days can be overwhelming for even the seasoned punters. There are literally hundreds of different types of soccer bets you can place on the Internet today. Let’s acquaint you with some of the most common soccer betting markets that you should be aware of.
Most commonly indulged in bet in soccer, this bet type is about selecting a team you expect to win the match, or bet on a draw. For instance, in the Liverpool vs Crystal Palace EPL encounter (find preview here) scheduled for August 21, you could either back Liverpool to win or Crystal Palace to win or the match to end in a draw.
This bet type is about predicting the score at the end of the game. It could be anything hence the odds are pretty high.
Draw no bet
Quite similar to the match result, this bet type doesn’t have the option of a draw. You bet on either team to win the match, or get your stake back in case of a draw.
This bet type is also referred to as double result, and is about predicting the scoreline at both half-time as well as full-time, under the same bet. This bet can be very useful if you know that a side has a knack of throwing away games despite leading at the half-time.
This bet type enables you to cover two or three different potential outcomes under a single bet. You can back home team and draw, home team and away team or away team and draw. As expected, the odds are shorter, but an extra option can come in pretty handy!
First goal scorer
A fairly simple bet, you need to predict who will score the first goal in the match. For instance, if you expect Mesut Ozil to find the back of the net first in Arsenal’s upcoming EPL encounter against Man City on August 12, you could put your money on him. Here’s a preview of that match. There is also an option to bet on ‘no goal scorer,’ implying that no goal will be scored in normal time.
Total goals (under/over)
In this bet, you must wager money on the total number of goals scored in a match being under or over the mark set by the sports book.
Anytime goal scorer
Quite like the first goalscorer bet, in this bet type you put your money on a certain player to score a goal at any time of the match.Continue reading →
