Bayern Munich vs Cologne

Bayern is impressive this season at home, achieving two wins and a draw in 11 fights. Cologne, however, is an expert in the away game, because for five of the six wins on the team during the season came to a foreign terrain. This makes the 'Goats` the strongest guest in the Bundesliga after the Bavarians.

Historically, the players from Munich have had 38 wins, 22 draws and 23 losses with a goal difference of 159: 114 against this rival. Cologne is the team with most wins against Bayern after Werder Bremen (26). The guys from Bayern have won less than half meetings at home: 19 wins and 13 draws in 41 fights.

Bayern has won only 1 of their past 6 and 2 of the last 9 collisions at home against this opponent. However, it should be noted that 'goats` have not had even one win in their last three visits here.

Today, Bayern celebrated its 115 birthday and yesterday`s press conference, the coach of the team Pep Guardiola wished to delight fans with a victory. Will the players of Cologne manage to spoil the feast of the most successful German Club?

Guarantor of success against Cologne was Robert Lewandowski, who has won all five meetings with this opponent, managing to score four times. Arjen Robben is poised to become Mr. Allianz Arena. Since the opening of the modern Stadium in 2005 only the former striker of Bavarians Mario Gomez has more goals than the Dutchman-49. 'Tulip` is on two hits by the sole leadership.

In the ranks of the hosts, Medi has some muscle problems and will miss the game. The recovered from torn knee ligaments Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez has already trained, but are not ready for the match. the same goes for Captain Philipp Lahm, who is completely healthy after the breaking of the bone in the ankle in the fall.

Well, our soccer prediction from messi best for that event is 1.

Juventus - Borussia Dortmund (Champions League)

Perhaps the best moment in the history of the guests is precisely related to a match with the upcoming rival. On May 28th, 1997 in the final match of the Champions League played in Munich, Borussia Dormund won the trophy after winning with 3:1 against Juventus. Now Juve will seek revenge from the boys of Jurgen Klopp and the outcome will be clear soon. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.10 for a home win, with a draw at 3.30 and 4.00 for the victory of the guests.

Juventus won against Atalanta at the weekend with 2:1. So, after the error from Roma, Juventus leads with nine points in the standings of Serie A and now can concentrate fully on the upcoming matches with Borussia Dormund. Massimiliano Allegri made some changes in his composition against Atalanta and managed to preserve some of his key players. In the line-up for the match against Borussia will return Arturo Vidal, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Patrice Evra. Out of the game, because of inujies are Kwadwo Asamoah, Andrea Barzagli, Luca Marrone and Alessandro Matri. The last returned in winter and was recorded in the teams list for the Champions League in Sebastian Giovinco`s place, who left to play in Canada. Juventus has not lost in their stadium for 46 games in all competitions and fans expect the upcoming match with Borussia Dortmund with high spirits.

The third consecutive victory for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga came on Friday night against Stuttgart (3:2) and climbs the team on 12th place in the ranking. Tension on the team of Jurgen Klopp dropped dramatically and his team can concentrate fully on the extremely important two matches with Juventus. The eccentric coach of Borussia has many problems before the visit in Torino. With injuries in the camp are Kevin Grosskreutz, Sven Bender, Erik Durm, Mats Hummels, Ciro Immobile and Sebasitian Kehl. The last five will pass fitness tests before the match to make it clear whether Klopp can rely on them. New signing Kevin Kampl is likely to remain on the bench of Dormund. The offensive midfielder from Salzburg will give place in the starting line-up of more experienced Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The expectations of specialists are quite interesting and equivalent for the clash between the two teams. Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are in good shape lately. In 6 of the last 7 games of Juventus in the Champions League we have seen fewer than 2.5 goals.

Recommended bets:
Under 2.5 goals @ 1.72 at bet365 (7/10)
Both teams to score @ 2.06 at Betfair (5/10)
Juventus @ 2.10 at Betfair (7/10)

Tottenham - West Ham (Premier League)

The two teams presented great this season and are the main candidates in the battle for places entitling participation to the tournaments. In mid-August last year, West Ham and Spurs opened the season with a great match in which the Spurs won in the stoppage time of the meeting. Hammers are ready to take revenge and fans of the home side hoping for another three points to bring them closer to the top four. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 1.80 for a home win, with a draw at 3.80 and 4.75 for the victory of the guests.

Spurs played the first match with Fiorentina in the Europa League this week. Tottenham missed the victory and the match ended with 1:1. It has been attended by some of the reserves of Mauricio Pochettino, but hardly his team will be fully restored for the game against West Ham. However, Spurs manager must be satisfied cause in his composition there are no injured or suspended players. Pochettino can select the optimal XI, to fight for three points against the Hammers. After a break against Fiorentina in the starting line-up will return Eric Dier, Ryan Mason, Moussa Dembele and Harry Kane. Spurs have 6 games in the next 16 days, which will largely determine the development of their season.

Three games without a win in the Premier League and dropping out of the FA Cup darkened the mood in the camp of West Ham. However, the season is good and the team has not lost his chances in front of the current 8th place. Last season, the Hammers won with 3:0 at "White Hart Lane" and now their fans are hoping for a similar development. For this visit, Sam Allardyce has to solve a lot of problems related to his composition. With punishment for this match is Morgan Amalfitano. With injuries are Andy Carroll, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho, Winston Reid, James Collins and Matt Jarvis. The last five are questionable for the game and the medical staff will decide further whether any of them will be able to appear at "White Hart Lane".

The Heavy cycle of matches for Spurs hardly will be good for them and the team of Mauricio Pochettino probably will be out of the familiar level. In their last five away games against West Ham in the Premier League we have seen fewer than 2.5 goals and we believe that now the game will end with a few hits.

Prediction Tottenham - West Ham: Under 2.5 goals
Security: 6/10
Odds: 2.10 at bet365

Infarcted victory!

The best Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov recorded extremely difficult victory at the start of the tournament in Rotterdam (ATP 500). 5th in the scheme has a 4:6, 7:6(2), 6:2 over veteran from France - Paul-Henri Mathieu in the match that lasted more than two hours.

At the end of the second set, Grigor had to save two match points. It happened at 6:4, 5:4 for Mathieu and his service. Dimitrov has been able to return to the game literally at the last moment.

In the tiebreaker came the most interesting time in the match, which ultimately proved fateful. In the first point, Dimitrov has been lucky, because a retur-winner of Mathieu landed on the line. But there was a signal for out and Grigor had his hand up for the "hawk eye".

However, the judge decided the ball to be replayed, which infuriated Mathieu and subsequently Frenchman totally lost his rhythm. As an experienced player, Grigor took advantage of the situation, managed to get tiebreak in the third set and won with 6:2 after two breakthroughs.

"Difficult win, but I`m glad that I managed to achieve it. At the end of the second set I found my game. The audience that supported me until the end, helped me very much" said Grigor in the interview on the court.

In the second round sportsman No1 of Bulgaria will face the winner of the match between David Goffin and Gilles Muller, which will go on the court tonight.

Deportivo La Coruna - Eibar (Primera Division)

The first match of the 22nd round of the Spanish Primera Division encounter two teams in completely opposite positions in the standings, but with close points. Deportivo La Coruna takes the 14th position with a total of 21 points, while SD Eibar are eighth with 27 points collected. Both teams won their participation in the Primera Division after they finished first and second in the Segunda Division. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.15 for a home win, with a draw at 3.25 and 3.60 for the victory of the guests. Deportivo and Eibar already played against each other in the autumn, when La Coruna won as a guest with minimum 0-1. Their last meeting here finished with a draw of 1-1 and in 2013 SD Eibar took the victory with 2-1. The two teams are new to the league, but it is Deportivo with far more experience here and that is why their victory is considered as a likely outcome of the meeting.

Deportivo La Coruna must urgently begin to earn points, because although on the 14th position, the team is very close to the danger zone. In the last round the players of Victor Fernandez won three points against Rayo Vallecano, but very difficult and a penalty at the end of the second half. One of the main strikers of the team Helder Postiga still not recovered from injury and midfielder Luis Farina is punished. The new arrival of Deportivo - Celso Borges was marked by good game against Rayo Vallecano, where he scored both goals. Oriol Riera is another new player in the team and he will probably replace the injured Postiga.

SD Eibar made a surprisingly strong performance in the league. They managed to stay in the top half of the table. However, from the New Year there is a crisis in the team and for three consecutive rounds SD Eibar has no victory, recording a draw and two defeats in a row. Gaizka Garitano can`t be able to rely on Manuel de Mora, which is with surgery, but basically this is the only problem player on the team.

We expect interesting and equivalent match in which the visitors have to win.

Prediction Deportivo La Coruna - SD Eibar: 2
Security: 6/10
Odds: 3.60 at bet365

Roma - Inter

In the final match of the 13th round of Serie A against each other are two major rivals in the face of Roma and Inter. The match will be played this Sunday at the stadium "Olimpico". Before the end of this round, Roma takes the second place with just three points behind the leaders Juventus and their rivals from Milan are ninth with 17 points collected. The last five meetings between the two teams in Serie A ended with three wins for Roma, one draw and one win for Inter.

Roma play great football this season and reasonably hold the second position with a real chance for the title in Italy. Against Inter, Roma rightly particular favorites and rightly expect to win three consecutive points. The team play in the Champions League, where they have any chance for the next phase, but this will be possible if they score at least a draw with Manchester City, or to win the last round of the group stage. Rudi Garcia could not be able to rely on defenders Vasilis Torosidis, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Federico Balzaretti and Leandro Castello - all with different injuries.

Before the end of the last 12th round the coach Mazzarri was released and Roberto Mancini took his place. After the big derby in the last round against Milan, Inter won only one point. Now they are in the middle of the table with 17 points collected. Mancini hasn`t show his style of play in the team, but the results should start soon because it is not permissible for a team like Inter to lose from Parma and in the next moment to record a draw with Verona. The game against Milan showed that the approach of Mancini is correct, but in the Europa League Inter already ensured their participation in the next stage of the tournament after a 2-1 with Dnipro earlier in the week. For the upcoming match with Roma, Mancini will not be able to rely on Brazilian defender Jonathan.

Roma had won all of the six home games this season and will this series will continue today against Inter. Inter are not ready to confront a rival in the Top 3 of the championship and reasonable will lose the game.

Soccer prediction from Roma - Inter: 1

Messi Is Ready For New, Fresh Wins!

The former Barcelona coach Cesar Luis Menotti and the Argentinean national team does not believe that the star of the Catalans Lionel Messi has not been planning a mutiny against the coach Luis Enrique.

The expert claims he does not believe that Messi did not lead a revolution or rebellion against Luis Enrique. According to him, Messi seemed weary and pensive, but now he is again fresh and eager to play. Menotti is convinced that there is a connection between the 'revitalisation` of Messi and the return of the good current condition of Barcelona. The team seems much more confident than it was before because there are fewer changes. Previously, there have been so many changes and nobody knew what to expect at any moment in the future.
Menotti thinks that at the moment the coach`s position is secure and that fact has increased the confidence of the players. The coach does not deny that Messi is a phenomenon and currently feels pretty well. According to him, Leo has recovered completely from weariness, which pained him lately and is ready for new exploits! We think in the same way!

The next match of Barcelona is going to be against the team of Elche, on 24th January 2015. Elche is on the 17th place in the standings, while Barca is 2nd, right behind the giants Real Madrid.

Here are some historical stats about the past games between the two teams - check it out, in case you are about to rely on yourself only when you do your soccer picks via messi , and therefore invest your cash:

24.08.2014 Barcelona 3:0 Elche
11.05.2014 Elche 0:0 Barcelona
05.01.2014 Barcelona 4:0 Elche

Probably, it is obvious for you already, but we do have to say that we expect nothing but a victory for Messi and friends. So our football prediction is definitely 2 and what about you?
