Swansea vs. Arsenal

Arsenal achieved a superb 2-0 victory over Swansea City; this was their second away win in just four days, giving Arsene Wenger reasons to celebrate. I rejoiced as well along with Wenger, since I won the bet I placed at IBCBET. on Arsenal’s win.

Undoubtedly, the hero of this match was Nacho Monreal, who brought his team the first goal in the 74th minute, in a pretty uncommon way. After Olivier Giroud failed to turn a good chance into a goal, due to a poor control of the cross sent by Cazorla, the ball ran to Monreal, who succeeded an impressive low shot past Vorm.

Nacho’s efforts were supplemented by another goal scored by Gervinho in the 90+1st minute, when the striker managed to take advantage by finishing off a break led by Aaron Ramsey.

Every single match will be critical from now on, since Arsenal are trying hard to overhaul Chelsea and Tottenham in the race for a top four finish. Arsenal seemed to have understood the importance of this fact in the match with Swansea; because they treated the game with the same seriousness and dedication as they would have done with any other team.

Prediction

Swansea vs. Arsenal

Friday, March 16th 2013, 11:00 CET

The match between Arsenal and Swansea that’s going to take place on 16.03  will be the fourth head-to-head confrontation between the two teams already this season, and one of the most awaited matches of the weekend. What is the most thrilling about this match is that both teams will start with a W2 D1 L2 record from their latest five direct confrontations.

Even if the scoring table reveals an almost perfect balance between these teams, Arsenal remain very confident in their chances. Moreover, regarding the amazing 0-2 victory achieved by Swansea on the 1st of December, Arsenal made a ironic, pertinent declaration, by considering it “Swansea’s final flourish”. As a consequence, their last confrontation from the 16th of January ended in a1-0 Arsenal’s victory, achieved with the help of Jack Wilshere, who scored for his team in the 86th minute of the match.

Apart from the teams’ level of self-confidence, that appears to be elevated enough in both cases, there are some more objective factors for writing the Swansea-Arsenal 16.03 tip that we should take into account. For example, the proportion of goals from set pieces achieved by Swansea (50%) is higher than any other team in the Premier League this season. Arsenal, on the other hand have their strong “arsenal” of weapons. They averaged 58.5% in possession this season, more than any other team (Swansea are on the 6th position, with 55.6%).

To draw a conclusion, I would say that both teams have their strong points and their advantages, and everything is going to happen tomorrow will depend on the way the teams are going to adjust their best qualities and turn them into winning goals. Still, my choice for tomorrow is Arsenal, and I am going to bet 5 units on their victory at 2.21. The odds I used are from IBCBET.

Arsenal to win at 2.21.

Dundee United vs. Aberdeen (Recap)

Recap

Dundee United vs. Aberdeen

Wednesday, January 2nd 2013, 10:00 CET

The match between Dundee United and Aberdeen that took place 2 days ago ended in a 2-2 draw, meaning that I’ve definitely won the bet I placed on Over 2.5 goals.

The manager from Dundee United, Peter Houston, stated that this time he has opted for a defensive strategy, since the January transfer window has opened. Also, Houston proved that he was very inspired when giving youth a chance and and made the debut of John Souttar possible. John Soutter, aged 16 is the youngest player from United. In this match, John proved to be a real talent within just 15 minutes. Houston claimed that he was forced to take such measures due to the number of injuries and suspensions and that he is not afraid of giving chances to much younger players.

Regarding the result of the match, Houston affirmed that a draw might have been a fair result, but what annoyed him the most was the free-kick for Aberdeen, when Jon Daly won the header and McGinn was backing into him. On the other hand, the boss of Aberdeen, Craig Brown, noted with interest the debut of the young Souttar.

All in all, it was a very balanced match with plenty of action.

Borussia Dortmund vs. VfB Stuttgart (Prediction)

Prediction

Borussia Dortmund vs. VfB Stuttgart

Saturday, November 3rd 2012, 06:30 CET

On the 3rd of November, Borussia Dortmund is going to meet VfB Stuttgart at Bundesliga. Judging by the statistics, Borussia Dortmund have done a very good job in their most recent games. For example, they achieved a victory against Freiburg away from home. On the other hand, VfB Stuttgart have won 3 matches out of their latest 5.

Stuttgart are playing good football, but now they’ll have to face a team which has been constantly evolving and improving strategy. Dortmund has 3 wins and one lost match at home, scored 11 goals and conceded 3, while Stuttgart have 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 lost game away from home, scoring 6 goals and conceding 8.

Regarding the direct confrontations of the teams in Bundesliga, the results are extremely balanced: 3 draws, 1 victory for Borussia Dortmund and 1 victory for VfB Stuttgart. The last match between the two teams ended in a spectacular 4-4 draw.

In defensive midfield, Jürgen Klopp is tipped to give İlkay Gündoğan the nod, since the Turk has become a key player on the last few matches. Vedad Ibišević, who is scheduled to return from suspension, could replace Cacau in the team of Stuttgart.

All in all, I expect this match to be highly professional and spectacular. I am going to place a bet on Dortmund’s victory, since they have been performing better and better. I bet 5 units at 1.70. The odds I used are from IBCBET!

Borussia Dortmund to win at 1.70.
