In the second qualifying round Ludogorets has defeated F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg with the general score of 5-1 (4-0 at home and 1-1 in Luxembourg). In the weekend they made an 0-0 at Cherno More Varna. They didn’t lost important players and they brought 2 good players like left-back Brayan Angulo (24 years, 35 appearances for Granada CF in the last season) and attacking midfield Anicet (24 years, 50 appearances, 11 goals and 6 assists for Botev Plovdiv in the last season).
On the other side FK Partizan Belgrade didn’t deserved to play in Champions League because they were in the second place after Red Star Belgrade, but Red Star Belgrade have some problems with UEFA so FK Partizan Belgrade represents Serbia in Champions League. In the second qualifying round they defeated HB Tórshavn from Faroe Islands with the general score of 6-1 (3-0 at home and 3-1 in Faroe Islands). They played only in friendly matches because Serbian championship didn’t started. They didn’t lost important players but didn’t brought new ones.
Both teams have met in the last year in the qualifying round of Champions League, PFK Ludogorets Razgrad won both matches after 2-1 at home and 1-0 at FK Partizan Belgrade.
PFK Ludogorets Razgrad have the same team that eliminated last year SS Lazio after 1-0 in Italy and 3-3 at home, defeated PSV Eindhoven with 2-0 at home and 2-0 in Holland, defeated GNK Dinamo Zagreb with 3-0 at home and 2-1 in Croatia.

In the first match in qualifications for the UEFA Champions League, Grasshoppers will host Lille.
Grasshoppers started terrible in Swiss Super League and after two rounds they did’t earn a single point. First, they lost against city rivals Zurich 1-0 in the first round and the second lost came against Thun 2-3 at home 4 days ago.
The home team have played 5 preparing matches before the start of the Super League and they have managed to win Wohlen and Wil (both teams are playing in Swiss Challange League – the second Swiss league), while Winterthur, Thun and Spartak Moscow beat them.

International Champions Cup
So Man United go into their third pre season friendly of the season, and third game under Van Gaal. They beat Roma in their last game as I thought they would. Van Gaal was very disappointed with the second half performance, showing his very high standards even in friendly games.

UEFA European Championship U19
This is the semi-finals of the Euro U19 tournament. Germany finished top of its group, won 3-0 and 2-0 over Bulgaria and Ukraine, drew 2-2 with Serbia. They are a solid team, but have defensive weaknesses as Serbia scored 2 goals against them and could have added more. But Germany is decent team up-front.
I like Austria U19 very much. They finished only second in their group. They won over Hungary 3-1, Israel U19 and lost over Portugal 2-1 but they had plenty of scoring chances, just that Portugal was more efficient and won that game.
Both teams have good players up-front, I see Germany as the likely winner of this game, Austria should get on the scoresheet, so BTS is a good option, my bet though is on over 3.5 goals in this game.
Over 3 goals

Ukraine : Premier League
Hoverla Uzhhorod are going to kick of their campaign against Karpaty in this new season of Ukranian top flight football.
Hosts have financial problems and are going to be understrenght due to them not being able to replace the quality of players that left the club.
Last season they played poorly but managed to avoid relegation and face a long and hard season to come.
Visitors will be mindful of this and will set out for 3 points here. They have had a good preparation leading up this game, losing only to Dinamo Zagreb in friendlies. They recorded wins over Maribor and Zilina and played out a goal less draw against Slavia Sofia.
I can’t see Karpaty losing this given the condition of hosts and form leading up to this game.
I expect a win for visitors but at very good odds we have the option of selecting the draw no bet for additional security.

Germany 3. Liga
Mainz II vs BielefeldEven if Coldgold already posted a preview – I think I can add some important Informations. Additional I think many people would look to late on the preview from Coldgold, and the odds crached then already. With 2 previews, the tip gain more importance.Mainz 05 II finished the season 2013/14 on the 3. place in the Regionalliga Südwest. Then they won both playoff matches against Neustrelitz and Mainz II was promoted.The promotion came unexpectedly and their target in this season is to avoid the relegation. The lower center of the table, not more.The Education stays in the foreground at Mainz 05 II, the Top Performers Christian Mathenia, Steven Lewerenz and Dennis Schmitt are gone. The players are on A-Level, this means they are adolescent and still in the growing. Physically much weaker and moody unstable – In addition, they are not interested for the future of this club, because they will leave it anyway in 1 or 2 years.Maybe they lost only 3 players, but this player were leading the whole team. Perhaps you know that even out of your life when you were once in a sports club. Every two years were in your level then maybe two older players. Those older players are nearly always the leader of the team.So Mainz II got weaker, what did happen with Bielefeld in the summer ?Place 16 in the 2. Bundesliga last season, the kick or new start was missing. They played and played and lost and lost and just did not find a way of coming out of this circle.
Then Relegation playoff match against Darmstadt, 1. leg the 3-1 away win for Bilefeld. Season rescued, puh… or maybe not ? 2nd leg 3-1 away win for Darmstadt, unpossible … 2-3 in over time 1st half.
Yes Bielefeld were leading 2-3, minute 120. -> 3 minutes extra time … still 2-3. Then 120 + 2minute last chance for Darmstadt … goal … 2-4. The whole season got f*cked with the last chance – bad dream never ending…
Reset. New Start. Everything will get better.
Florian Dick signed, this 1 player has already a market price of 1Mio €, the whole Mainz 05 II team only has a market price of 2Mio €. Bielefeld’s whole teams has 7,5Mio €.
In the German Kicker, they ask all Trainer of their thoughts about favorites in the 3. Liga.
The opinions are very clearly : Wehen Wiesbaden and Bielefeld are the 2 top teams.
Bielefeld played friendlies against Hannover, Wattenscheid, Paderborn, Fichte Bielefeld, Nordhausen. They won each of them, moste of the time to Nil. Ordered, acting with plan and mind this Bielefeld team has only 1 target and this is the 1. place.
Some young players coming out of the summer holiday time against Profi’s out of the 2. Bundesliga, Bielefeld want to set everything clear and I defently expect a victory here.
Schütz and the captain Hornig are missing, on one side bad on the other side maybe the chance for Dick to take the role of a captain. He is coming from Kaiserslautern, they played some pretty good football last season – he can show Bielefeld how they can do the same !
Hornig is old and does not have this New Starting feeling that the team needs. Dick is 2 years younger but exactly in the age of an experiented player who can lead a team.
Maybe Mainz II is making them self bader than they are, but selfconfidence is already 1/4 of the tax. Christiano Ronaldo is not the best player in the world because he is saying, “nah i am actually not that good” – no he thinks that he is the greatest in the world.
For non Germans, this is a small league – so the chance of false odds is real.
Last season of 3. Liga the promoted teams were Heidenheim and Red Bull Leipzig – both started with an away game and both won the away game with 1-0. So why not this year as well.
Pick : Bielefeld
|Birkebeineren Vs Fram Larvik +3|
Football – Norway
|Pick: 2 ( 1X2) Result: 2-3
Stake: 3/10 Odds: 2.00 Bookmaker: Unibet
Norway 2 Division A
Birkebeineren gets a visit from Fram Larvik to a match in the Norwegian 3rd division, section number 1.
Birkebeieren has had a terrible season so far, and has 0-0-5 at their own turf, which is very very weak ofcourse. Now in the summer it is even worse, as the club is struggling economical, and 4 players is gone now, with up to 8 other wanting to leave.
Odd 2 won 3-0 over Birkebeineren last match. Birkebeineren players were just so tired in the end, they could do nothing.
Fram Larvik is a decent team, and is stronger than Birkebeineren. With the players leaving the club, this should be a Fram Larvik victory.
Fram Larvik win
|IFK Mariehamn Vs RoPS -3|
Football – Finland
|Pick: 1 (-0.75 AH) Result: 2-4
Stake: 3/10 Odds: 1.87 Bookmaker: 188bet
I think IFK Mariehamn can win this one. They have got some great players like Petteri Forsell, Luis Solignac, Bernardo Ribeiro, Diego Assis, Patrick Byskata, Albino Granlund, Tommy Wirtanen, Bobby Friberg etc. Their captain and son of a coach Jani Lyyski is doubtful but the class difference between the two teams is almost like a top division team playing against 4th division team.
I bet 1000 000 million euros for Mariehamn. Mariehamn used to fix matches some time ago but now I think the corrupted players are gone and Wilson Raj Perumal has said he tries not to fix matches in future and the current match fixer of Finland doesn’t yet have a contact in IFK Mariehamn squad.
Pick: Mariehamn to win
