Yannick Carrasco is one of the stars set to get a goal when Atletico Madrid play Rostov in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The player has stepped out of the shadows of Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres of recent and has a high odds of getting a goal anytime.

City face Barcelona again after their recent 4-0 thumping. Lionel Messi almost singlehandedly handed City manager Pep Guardiola one of his worst nights as a football manager. Even football betting experts wouldn’t have predicted such for the former Barcelona coach. However, the floodgates were opened after Claudio Bravo was sent off. City entered the game with a 6/1 odds to win but they are 19/10 to win at home.

Manchester City only just returned to winning ways after six games. They thrashed West Brom in convincing fashion, and are set to face a weakened Barcelona side – when compared to the last squad. Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba are injured; Jeremy Mathieu remains suspended for the red card he picked up. Andres Iniesta remains sidelines as well. Continue reading

Football Betting Includes Careful Analysis

For those who indulge in football betting, there is a lot of insight and analyses that go into their decisions unlike what others might think.

While some might think it to be simply a matter of gambling and a way of making quick bucks, it is definitely not so. There are experts who forecast and predict how teams will work and players will play, which often turns out to be exactly what happens out there in the field weeks later.

The latest analysis is about Croatia and the impressive form that the team has been flaunting. Many experts are hinting at the possibility of Portugal and Ronaldo being overridden by this team. Not every star player is always successful in all the matches and there have been two games that have proven to be barren for Ronaldo. However, in the game against Hungary he finally discovered his scoring magic again. Portugal on the other hand, has been following a different strategy that has proven successful in helping the team move to the knockout stages. They have not been able to win a single game, but the new format of competition rules has helped them to move past the group games. They have failed against teams like Hungary, Austria and Iceland. That definitely raises serious questions about their form this year.

The team has depended on Ronaldo entirely and that might be a weakness for the team. Ronaldo was unable to score for the team till the third game. He even missed a penalty shot that is unlike him. With smaller teams being up against Portugal and the team not being able to perform, for a game where they will be facing Croatia, you might want to look more favorably towards the latter whose team seems to be more organized this time.

Manchester City appear to have forgotten Stevan Jovetic

Manchester City appear to have forgotten Stevan Jovetic after they brought in Wilfried Bony from Swansea City for around £ 28 million.

The Ivory Coast international became the most extensive player of the January transfer window, but many have questioned the necessity of the striker at the Etihad stadium. City had just signed Jovetic from Fiorentina in the summer for £ 24 million. The Montenegrin striker was seen as the perfect replacement for Alvaro Negredo, who moved to Spanish football initially on a loan deal. The 25-year-old, though, has featured rarely in the City first-team.

After making just nine Premier League starts so far,Jovetic was heavily linked with a return to Italian football towards the end of January. This did not happen andJovetic now remains part of the City team at least for the next six months.Jovetic is unlikely to get any game time after the arrival of Bony. The 25-year-old has now opened up on the situation and has criticised manager Manuel Pellegrini for not providing him with enough opportunities. Ironically, Pellegrini was the manager who had signed the player from Fiorentina. Continue reading
