Aston Villa vs. Crystal Palace - Free Football Prediction

Aston Villa didn’t have a win in four consecutive rounds, and those matches were a mix of poor discipline and controversial coach decisions. They have also a victory in seven rounds, and that portends hope for both teams for a change.

The media are concentrated in the team of the guests, before the start of the match, because Alan Pardew is expected to take up the baton after the change of the management post.
Fabian Felf will miss three games for the hosts after becoming the third player of Villa expelled directly into the last four games. Considering the absence of Ashley Westwood Lambert will surely have some headaches in the middle of the field.

Kieran Richardson and Gabby Agbonlahor returned after penalties and will play, while Joe Cole is back from an injury, which he got precisely again the team of Crystal Palace in the first match of the championship between those teams.

The guests are almost without any problems. Marwan Samak is injured and it is expected that Wilfred Zaha will participate in the game. The wife of Yannick Bolasie is assigned to give birth that day and that fact puts his presence into a question. Mile Jedinak has a commitment with the Australian national team.

Both teams rely on defense to the moment in that season. Villa has Christian Benteke, but recently returned striker has not yet filed his normal condition.

Marseille vs. Nantes

At the start of the 15th round of Ligue 1 we will see a large French derby between first in the temporary standings Olympique Marseille and ranked fourth in the table - Nantes. Nantes are only 7 points after Marseille at this stage of the championship and this difference is quite surmountable. The last four games between the two teams from the past two seasons and finished with one win for Nantes and one draw. The game is this Friday (28 November 2014).

Marseille were defeated in their last meeting in Nantes right here on their "Velodrome" and this will be an additional motive for them to take revenge on the best way. If they do not win in this match, Marseille risk to loosing their position of leadership as tightly behind them are champions Paris Saint Germain with only one point less. Marseille are in a series of six consecutive victories at home, which more or less makes them favorites against Nantes. Coach Marcelo Bielsa could lose the derby against Paris Saint-Germain, but in the last round against another of its illustrious rival in the face of Bordeaux, Marseille were adamant (3-1). The only problem of the camp is defender Jeremy Morel and in the game now will be back the Cameroon defender Nicolas N'Koulou and midfielder Benoit Sheyru.

The ambitions of Nantes were related only to the survival of the team in the elite of France, but after the past 14 rounds and very good results, the appetites of the club increased significantly. Team is now in fourth place and damages from their all matches away from home are only two - from Monaco and Lille. Besides Ligue 1, the team continues its participation in the tournament for the League Cup.
Armenian football specialist Michel Der Zakarian doesn’t have any problems in their composition, but will need a little more defensive style of play against the leader in the league. Injured players Kian Hansen and Remi Gomis are fully recovered and returned for this game.

Marseille will keep their leadership position and will be even harder to defeat by the visiting team of Nantes. An odd for the victory of the home side is 1.50, while for guests coefficient reaches 7.50.

Soccer prediction by 11LiveGoal: Marseille – Nantes: 1
Security: 8/10

Odds: 1.50 at bet365 (1.60 at Betfair)

Sevilla – Rijeka

In the decisive match of the last round of the group stage of the Europa League on Thursday evening at Ramon Sanchez Pishuan, Sevilla accept Rijeka. The odds for the game offered by the bookmaker Bet365 are as follows: 1.30 for a home win, 6.00 for a draw and 11:00 to victory of the guests. The judge panel will be from Germany, as the chief referee of the match will be Manuel Grafe. Last match between Sevilla and Rijeka is from the second round of Group G finished with a goal draw (2:2) in Croatia.

Sevilla lost the visit to Feyenoord in Netherlands with 2:0 last weekend and now needs a point to be sure for the next phase. However, the team will come to a convincing win. In the first match between both teams, the late goal by Stephan M'Bia brought the point for the Spaniards. Seville is a strong opponent in the home games in the tournament. The team has won convincingly the last 4 matches in European competitions. Coach Unai Emery will not be able to rely only on the injured Benoit Tremoulinas. This will help to put together a good squad for this important match for Sevilla.

Rijeka presents a fantastic form in the tournament, but now will have to make a miracle to continue in the Europa League. Team won all his seven points in the group at their stadium, but far from home Croats are not convincing. The task is complicated in a view of the fact that historically in five away games on Spanish soil, Rijeka is not even scored a goal. Coach Mitjaz cannot count on Ivan Krastanovich and Dino Raspor, because of injures. Health problems have also their playmaker Moises, but he is likely to start in the starting eleven. Andrei Kramaric has 5 goals in the tournament and the squad of Rijeka rely on his goals series to continue at Ramon Sanchez Pishuan.

Sevilla is the better team and will defend the trophy won last year. Spaniards will not underestimate the game and will take a convincing victory that will send them into the knockout. We recommend that you have to seek success in Sevilla with coefficient of 1.30 at bet365.

Soccer forecast of 11-Live-Goal: Sevilla – Rijeka: 1

Almeria – Real Madrid

The first game of the 15th round of La Liga is the meeting of Almeria and Real Madrid. Both teams are in absolutely different poles in the standings. Almeria are in 17th position with a total of 10 points and Real Madrid is in the first place with 36 points in its assets. The match will be played at the stadium "Mediterraneo" on Friday. Betting on home win are accepted at Bet365 at odds of 15.00 and for the guests is 1,18.

This meeting comes at a very inopportune moment for Almeria. They are in a series of eight consecutive games without a win. Also, the team is now without a coach and the chaos on the field for them will be full. Almeria soon will be in the danger zone as the last team is level on points with them. As hosts Almeria have no victory and all their two wins came away from "Mediterraneo". This fact and the fact that they are playing against Real Madrid putted a pressure over them and maybe only a miracle can save them. The last victory of Almeria came in September, when managed to win as guests over Deportivo La Coruna. The following results have been discouraging and after the last loss in the last round by SD Eibar with 5-2, the coach of the team Francisco Rodriguez was released. For the match against Real Madrid, current assistant of Rodriguez - Jamie Ramos, will lead the team. There is no information about injured or suspended players in the team of Almeria; even midfielder Jose Verza will be back to play.

Real Madrid are in excellent shape. Royal Club is in a dominant position and their series of 19 consecutive wins is just incredible. This figure is a true record of a team in Europe, but Real Madrid will not stop here and will try to reach another record of 24 wins set by the Brazilian team Coritiba. For this reason, Real Madrid will not underestimate any opponent and smash mercilessly even teams like Almeria, using all of its available composition of stars. In addition to hold first place in La Liga, Real Madrid managed to finish in first place in the group stage of the Champions League with full points. The last match of Champions League was not with optimal composition but now Almeria will have serious problems after Pepe, Benzema, Marcelo and Carvajal are back in form. Remains only injured Luka Modric, but his absence will hardly matter.
Here is how think the match will finish: 
Prediction Almeria – Real Madrid: 2 or over 2.5 goals

Security: 9/10

Hellas Verona vs. Sampdoria - football predictions

Although the participants in today’s football event are not from the group of ‘giants’, perhaps the real fans of Italian soccer will not miss those derbies. So, what about you? Get ready to enjoy the game! Here is some info, which will help you a lot, when you are about to draw your own soccer picks:
Hellas Verona performed very well in the first two months of the season, but after that the ‘yellow-blue’ have started to do it badly. Today, the team of Andrea Mandorlin will be looking for their first win in their last eight games, during which the gentlemen of Verona took only three points and that's pulled them down on 14th position, four points away from the danger zone. We will note, however, that Hellas Verona had a too busy schedule and too many injured players. You all know that such a combination is something like a tragedy for any soccer team.
Believe it or not, the team of Sampdoria has only one loss since the beginning of the season, and their defense is the second good after that of Juventus. Now, please note that the attack of that team is among the top ten ‘worst attacks’ in the elite – the players of Sinisa Mihajlovic have scored only 16 goals so far. There's no way to know how long the tactics of the 45-year-old tactics expert will last, but Sampdoria is now located on the sixth place in the standings, four points away from the top 3. In their last three games, the ‘sailors’ had three draws – against AC Milan and Napoli as a host and against Cesena as a guest.
Missing players: the hosts are going to play today without the injured Salah, Sorensen, Obbadi, Janković and Martic. Halfredson is punished. When it comes to the guest team, Obiang and Soriano are not going to participate in the coming match today.
And that match is going to be equivalent and contested. The guests will probably be lurking for counterattacks. It is very likely the winner to win by one goal scored only. Anyway, there is a high chance for the match to finish in a tie as well.
The advice of is to bet, only in case you feel sure about it. Do not waste your time and money, relying on your luck only. Yes, surely, luck is crucial but in sports betting it is not only about luck. There are many factors which may influence the outcome of a particular football match, remember it.
