Quick overview of 17-18.01.2015
Before us is a new week with a new excitement in the strongest leagues in Europe where slowly starting to show the first signs that teams will be at the top and bottom of the table.
Empoli – Inter
Let’s start from Italy and Inter Mancini’s arrival, which is the coaching bench and launched a fierce campaign where they transfer to the club already arrived Podolski and Shaqiri and more are expected in some reinforcements. In the last round, are relatively easy to beat Genoa and now go to the hosting Empoli who will fight for survival, which is much improved form after a poor start of the championship. Empoli is lost in the last round on away match with Sampdoria and now will try to remain unbeaten but I honestly think that the Inter of shifting to a 4-4-2 formation started to play much better and has much better composition in relation to the opponent so that this match in my opinion, will not lose.
Lazio – Napoli
Lazio’s last round played Rome derby where, despite the advantages of two goals in the match eventually ended with 2:2. On the other hand, Napoli lost derby match against Juventus (3: 1) and they are now on the 4th position with a point less than Lazio. Lazio is in good shape and already eight matches without defeat while Napoli on tour playing quite variable and difficult but loses points. This will be most interesting to me after this round match and I believe we will watch an exciting match with a minimum of 3 Goals per cent in the past on their games always achieved a lot of goals.
Juventus – Verona
Juventus’s Cup match in thursday played against Verona and the match received a score of 6:1, although they played in the mixed composition so that in this game will probably perform allergy stronger lineup but the outcome should be similar. I believe that we can see again a minimum of 3 goals in this match.
QPR – Man Utd
In England, Manchester United’s team was outplayed in the last round of the Southampton and now wants to catch up with the leading teams and a match against QPR is an ideal opportunity for this. QPR this season will be fierce struggle for survival, and now the 19 points they won at home so that they will do their best to stay and no losers in this game. Manchester embarrassed against Southampton and now will have to keep up with the teams that are fighting for places that lead in the Champions League next season. Quality is at the side of the guests, but they do not excel in away games this season, but against these teams have to win if they want to remain in the top of the table.
Man City – Arsenal
Derby this round will play Man City and Arsenal. Arsenal is still without a few key players who are injured and many times their results vary because of that so we’ll see how it will be able against a team that played a draw against Everton in the last round and so let Chelsea to separate the 2 points. City has an imperative to win every round if he wants to defend his title, but this year Arsenal has not lost from City. Both teams want to score points and will not be so easy to deliver and both teams are more than capable to achieve at least one hit.
Swansea – Chelsea
Since Man City play a tough match against Arsenal the day before Chelsea team will go on with the hosting team Swansea where they will have to win in order to even further apart in the standings percent to now have only 2 points ahead of the City. Chelsea is in great shape and Mourinho will have all the players available on the other hand the best player of Swansea, Wilfred Bony was with the team at the African Cup of Nations. As I said Chelsea must win in this match and the quality and form are on their side.
Deportivo – Barcelona
In Spain Barcelona played a phenomenal match against Atletico Madrid and won 3:1 and is now visiting at Deportivo in La Coruna where the form varies drastically and who will be this season to fight for survival. Barcelona on Thursday played a Cup match against Elche in which none of the 11 players who played against Atletico was not in the team so this match all get ready and there is no reason that this game more than routine tassels in their favor and to the a pair of goals difference.
