ATHLETIC BILBAO - INTER BAKU

 

Athletic Bilbao is extremely competitive in its stadium, the San Mames, and we expect a good performance vs Inter Baku which has already played two qualifying rounds of Europa League drawing 3 matches and winning the other.

Inter Baku will be without the forwarders Muniain and Williams who are injured and these are heavy lacks for Azerbaijan team.

Probably spanish team will try to secure the qualification with a convincing win in order to face the second leg with a big advantage.

WEST HAM - ASTRA GIURGIU


West Ham betrayed the expectations in the last round when obtained the qualification only after the penalty kicks vs Birkirkara, a modest maltese team.
The first leg ended with an english victory 1-0 with a goal scored in the last minutes.

Hammers need to be much more concentrated to have the best vs Astra Giurgiu since romanian league has already started and physical condition is surely better among romanian players.

New coach Bilic takes care a lot about defensive phase and indeed West Ham has conceded only 1 goal in the last 4 matches.

We like the HOME WIN and also UNDER 3.5.

SAMPDORIA - NOVI SAD


First official match for Sampdoria and the new coach Walter Zenga.

Zenga knows serbian league very well since he has trained Red Star in the season 2005/2006.

Sampdoria is stronger than Novi Sad and has all the qualities to win this match but there are some things that have to be kept on mind:

this match will be played in Turin and not in Genova and the other factor is that Novi Sad has already played 6 official matches.

The good thing is that Novi Sad has started bad the serbian league having collected only 1 point in 2 matches conceding a total of 6 goals.

We expect a very offensive Sampdoria in the first half which will try to find a goal in order to keep the advantage in the second half making a lot of ball possession.

SOUTHAMPTON - VITESSE


Very unlucky draw for these teams since both have the potential to reach the group stage.

English team is the favourite because has a great defensive solidity, while Vitesse usually scores a lot but at the same time concedes too much.

Southampton has sold Schneiderlein and Clyne but has bought Juanmi, Soares and mainly Klasie.

Vitesse, instead, every year takes a lot of good youngsters on loan from other teams and often struggles at the beginning of the season due to the inexperience and the fact that these players have never played together and this year the transfers of Propper and Vejinovic surely don't help.

WOLFSBERGER - BORUSSIA DORTMUND


Borussia has changed the coach for the new season: Tuchel took the place of Klopp but the gamestyle stayed almost the same: very offensive game made of verticalizations and counterattacks.

The friendlies played by german team have confirmed it till now but the defense hasn't appeared perfect.

In our opinion german team is too strong for Wolfsberger which has started the austrian league with a home loss vs Austria Wien (0-2) on last Sunday.
