winning and losing and this was exactly the case on Monday.
Yesterday we saw no significant ''surprises'' in European
Champions league except the Under 2.5 goals score in the
game of Bayern vs Benfica.
In different subject, the Scandinavian Leagues are underway
and for you who don't know me, it is true that I am a big fan of
the Scandinavian football for quite a few reasons.
IFK Goteborg v Hacken. The hosts started well this season
and achieved a 'comfortable' away win last week against
Falkenbergs. Generally speaking, I think they are still a very
strong challenger to win the championship as long ...... they don't commit 'last minute results-suicides' as they did at the latest
fixtures last year.
On the other hand, Hacken started also with a win last week. A
victory I would say against a very strong team as Elfsborg is.
Having said that, I think Hacken did not play very well, specially
in the second half and they had a 'lucky escape' with the three
points. Generally speaking, I am not expecting great things from Hacken this season and more likely
they will end up at a middle-position again. In today's game, the hosts are the clear favourite in my
view and I am quite surprised to see the price so high for their win. If you are not 'convinced' then
alternatively, the over 2,5 goals market offers equivalently good value. 1/2 Half Won
Jonkopings Sodra v Malmo. The 'newbies' in Allsvenskan start really good this season and they
could score more goals against Kalmar last week. Is too early to try to predict their future although,
I was impressed with their performance.The visitors - Malmo looked serious against the champions
Norrkoping and turned that 'derby' to an easy win. Will they be a serious contestant this season or
they will lead to another disaster as last year? I find great value in the Over 2.5 goals market
in Betfair's exchange for two teams which their attacking lines look good! Won
Norrkoping v Kalmar FF. I was a bit disappointed with Champions against Malmo, which were
'hammered' in the last game. I think they avoided somehow to get away just with a 3-1 score defeat.
They got to prove to themselves and to their fans that last year's trophy it was not a one off
coincidence, although I can't see repeating that achievement this year again. Kalmar it was a
disappointment as well in last game and although is to early in the days to jump in conclusions, I think
they will be among the teams for relegation this year. I don't expect any surprises in this game, easily or not, the hosts should win. Won
Champions League. Wolfsburg is one of the 'pleasant surprises' of the competition and I look
forward to watching them against Real Madrid. Having said that, today the hosts will not have
available a handful of important players and more likely they would look more their defence. Although
Real Madrid is the clear favourite today, I would turn to the value of Under 2.5 goals market with the
''attached risk''. Won
In the other game of PSG vs Man. City, I expect the hosts to come out of this game victorious in the
second half. Lost
