France vs Bulgaria

Bulgaria is going to play tonight against European champion France in his home Stade de France in a world qualification. Here is our football prediction.
The French player, however, will not underestimate the match, because they still remember 1993, when Emil Kostadinov punished them with two goals in the Parc des Princes which put the beginning of the great march of the Bulgarians in the World Cup in the United States. This meeting is considered as one of the greatest failures in the history of French football, but today the realities are entirely different and Bulgaria already has players from the class of Hristo Stoichkov, Krasimir Balakov and friends.
Instead, our hopes are associated with the star of Spartak Moscow Ivelin Popov and the star of Ludogorets, Marcelinho. The two will certainly start and holders, the coach Peter Hubchev, for whom this will be the debut, is expected to close in the team defense. He was shown that is a master of the defensive football, which could prove to be the key to a sensation in Paris. But central defenders of Levski - Alexander Alexandrov and Dimitar Pirgov, who is expected to run holders need to be very careful against Antoine Griezmann, Dmitri Payet, Paul Pogba and other stars of the team.
It is expected that in the absence of Olivier Girou and the suspended Karim Benzema, Didier Deschamps to wager in the front positions of the Kevin Gameiro, while Evans has a dilemma related to the midfield - Simeon Dart or Georgi Kostadinov, who because of his last name, cause a great resonance in France. However, the midfielder of Lechia Gdansk to begin the match mentioned by messibest by 1-minute, as the footballer of Levski has not yet made his official debut for the national team.
Strange as it may sound, historically, France is one of the most convenient rivals of Bulgaria. Statistics between the two teams is 8 wins and 4 draws, and in global qualifications, the advantage is on our side - 5 success, 3 losses. History shows that in the qualifying Group with team, once we have not managed to qualify for World Cup in 1978 in Argentina and it`s all because of a missed penalty kick by the then Captain Hristo Bonev.
In France, however, Bulgaria has had only one win - historic in 1993, and six losses, including 1:6 in control in 1938 as much as we wish we were doing, our estimate is that the Lions tonight would again bow heads in Paris because a snapshot of football in both countries is from the sky to the Earth.
Our football forecast is 1.

Norwich vs Chelsea

Chelsea is going to visit Norwich in a meeting of the intermediate 28th round of the English Premier League. Here is our soccer prediction.
Norwich will have to lay a lot of effort until the end of the season if it wants to keep the elite status. 'Canaries` are on the 17th place with an asset of 24 points as there are 18th and Newcastle, and with a point less is second-to-last Sunderland.
Norwich was very close to winning a point against Leicester as a guest of the leader over the weekend, but at the end of the meeting they made a hit and lost with 0:1. It was the sixth defeat for the team in the last seven games in the Premiership and Alex Neil needs to quickly change something in the team in order not to find the team in the relegation zone after this round. The last success of Norwich at home was against Southampton and they will try to end a run of four matches without a victory in front of their own audience. In the past household, 'Canaries` won a point against West Ham United after a tie of 2:2 as a squandered an advance of two goals.
Chelsea will be looking to get the third consecutive win in all tournaments, after beating Manchester City with 5:1 in the FA Cup and over the weekend as a guest they outplayed Southampton as a guest with 2:1 for the second straight success in the League. The advance of Blues became just about up to 11th position in the provisional rankings having asset of 36 points and are on the verge of entering the top 10.
Chelsea has still no loss in the Premier League under the leadership of Guus Hiddink. Londoners are saved from the defeat of St. Mary`s, after two goals in the second half turned the hosts from Southampton. Fabregas and Ivanovic struck the door of Fraser Foster and brought the ninth success of Blues since the beginning of the season.
John Terry, Kurt Zuma and Radamel will almost certainly miss the visit of Norwich on Tuesday. Despite their absence, however, we expect the rise of the team under Guus Hiddink to continue and the Blues to outplay their opponent, as they did earlier in the season, winning with 1:0 at Stamford Bridge.
Our soccer forecast via is 2.

In the middle of the pitch after having endured a punishment of, we will see Danilo Pereira. In attack, the Dragons will rely on the possible good appearances of Vincent Abubakar and Yassin Brahimi.
Borussia Dortmund won the weekend visit to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga with a result of 1:0. However, the `yellow-black` remain eight points behind the leader Bayern Munich and it seems logical to concentrate their forces on winning a trophy in the Europa League. Once they have achieved a solid lead of two clean goals a week ago, the boys will arrive at the stadium with the thought of a new success. The only absentee from the team of Borussia Dortmund is the central defender - Sokratis, who is injured. His place in central defence alongside with Mats Hummels will be taken by Neven Subotic. Nuri Sahin, who returned after a long treatment of an injury a week ago, will again come up the holder. The experienced midfielder will start in midfield alongside the young hope of the Borussia, Julian Vajgl. In attack, Thomas Tuchel will bet on Aubameyang, who will be supported by the rear positions by Henkrih Mihtaran, Shinji Kagawa, and Marco Reuss.
The class of Borussia Dortmund looks pretty serious, and the hosts will have to work wonders to move on. Porto will show its good attack.
Well, our soccer forecast is 2.

The main reasons for the success of Leicester

Leicester is a leader in the Premier League. The team of Claudio Ranieri has 53 points after 25 rounds of the Championship.
The reasons for the rise of the `Foxes` are many - the tactical skills of Ranieri, the goal power of Jamie Vardi, the balance between the team`s lines, physical training and the protection of key players from severe injuries. There are probably more.
But the factor of success is the ability of Ranieri to bond players without luster, who give their best and managed to win as a team. At the beginning of the season, the Italian was adopted by the majority of supporters with a grain of salt, but his work proved his skills.
Leicester was considered one of the outsiders in the Premier League before the start of the season, but now things have changed, even the team becoming champion this season will be remembered.
Cante, Marez, Vardi - all of them are footballers without much glitter on the surface, but these footballers with `blue` t-shirts achieved a lot. Let`s do a little comparison with one of the great teams of the world and European football, Real Madrid.
What is the difference between Marez and Modric, Hoot and Sergio Ramos, Kasper Schmeichel and Keylor Navas? Overwhelming at first glance, but it`s all a matter of advertising. Well, the boys of Leicester already had the necessary advertising, and it can last for a good performance.
There is still the option Leicester to fail as there are still 13 rounds to the end of the Championship, but these key players of Leicester with `illiterate preseason preparation` and yet have managed to adapt to football in the Premier League.
There are other examples of teams of so-called `Golden medium` who were remembered - Wolfsburg, Hamburger, Getafe.
The current Leicester is an `alloy` of soccer players with qualities, but also benefiting from the situation, it`s all in the heads of the players, not everything depends on their skill, talent and transfer fee paid for footballers.
