Rapid Bucuresti – Heerenveen 09.08.2012
First leg ended 4-0 for dutch side and it was pretty much deserved since Rapid made some crucial mistakes and gifted some cheap goal.
I was not impressed with this dutch side, they are young side but they do posses some good prospects, but considering how poor is Rapid at this time, the dutch team looked fairly better.Now, this second leg will take place at National Arena, but there wont be large audience, onlt 160 tickets were sold untill today and that cause people had enough of this amateurish management of Rapid, so i dont thing there will be more than 5000 fans, and on tha big stadium it will not matter.
Match: Rapid B – Heerenveen 20.30h
League: Europa League
Our prediction: Double Chance on away team Odds: 1.67
Rapid barely won first game in the league after luckly drawing the first 2 and again it was visible that this team cant run, barely creates something and has big defensive issues.Iasi was just second league material and couldnt create nothing.Atmospfere is also very bad, most of the players dont like the coach cause he tries to bring religious atmosphere to trainings.Simply Rapid is just a mess at this point, everything goes bad and i a bet againt Rapid is the logical one here.Dutch side may be young but they are eager to show themselves here, i dont think they’ll enter demotivated here, since they will start the league this weekend.
As a safer bet I recommend the the double chance in the visiting team since the host is in crisis and the question is how many moral have for today’s game.
