Sweet 33 Odds Of Straight Win Odds ACCA on ZEbet

 

Sweet 33 Odds Of Straight Win Odds ACCA on ZEbet




It's another Sunday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe


RB Leipzig Vs Stuttgart


Sunday’s clash between Leipzig and Stuttgart will by no means make crucial changes to the Bundesliga standings at the end of the season. Neither of the two sides have a strong imperative going into it.

The lack of competitiveness has caused negative streaks of results for both outfits in the recent weeks.

The hosts gave up the title contest after winning just one of the last four league affairs, while their rivals dropped into bottom half after losing three matches on the trot in the competition.

Die Roten Bullen need just three more points in the remaining four rounds to mathematically secure the top-four finish. They have been surprisingly inactive in the final third in the last two matches, failing to score more than one goal past the likes of Hoffenheim and Koln.

After all, Julian Nagelsmann kept the main focus on the stern defensive line after selling Timo Werner last year. This is why RB Leipzig have the best defensive record in the entire league with only 25 goals allowed in 30 matches.

Leipzig vs Stuttgart Head-to-head

Stuttgart have really struggled to perform against Die Roten Bullen in a short history of this match-up.

Die Schwaben lost four and drew one of five meetings with RB Leipzig.

Stuttgart scored only one goal in five clashes against Die Roten Bullen.

This term’s game saw Leipzig’s 0-1 victory at Merceds-Benz-Arena.


  Borussia Monchengladbach Vs Arminia Bielefeld   

Arminia Bielefeld scored only two goals in the last three league matches but collected as many as seven points along the way. They took the maximum advantage of an easier schedule to keep three subsequent clean sheets in the fixtures against Freiburg, Augsburg, and Schalke.

Die Blauen are now four points above Hertha BSC who hold the relegation play-offs spot but also have two games in hand on Arminia. Frank Kramer’s men thus still have a mountain to climb to secure survival in the top flight of German football.

Die Arminien will be looking to steal the salvation points off 7th-placed Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday afternoon when they visit Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK in the last match of the 31st Gameweek.

Die Fohlen have had a disappointing campaign throughout the entire season and they will be lucky to finish inside the top six and end up in UEFA Europa League.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Arminia Bielefeld Head-to-head

Bielefeld have never been a serious opposition to Die Fohlen.

Borussia won 23, drew 6, and lost 7 of 36 games against Die Blauen. Their dominance was particularly expressed in matches at BORUSSIA-PARK where M’gladbach won 13, drew 3, and lost just 2 of 18 encounters with Die Arminien.

Borussia Monchengladbach celebrated a narrow 0-1 victory when they played Die Blauen in the first part of the season.


INTER MILAN VS HELLAS VERONA

Inter will try and get their title quest up and running on Sunday afternoon when they play host to mid-table Hellas Verona at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

The Nerazzurri played back-to-back 1-1 draws in the last two rounds against Napoli and Spezia. Luckily for Antonio Conte and his men, their main rivals Milan fell 1-2 at home to Sassuolo on Wednesday. Inter thus even managed to extend the gap at the top of the standings to ten points.

Inter have a great chance to make another step towards Scudetto as they will go into this weekend’s tie with Verona as massive favourites.

Meantime, the Gialloblu have been far from their best lately. They will travel to Milano off the back of three successive defeats in Serie A.

The lack of motivation is probably one of the main reasons for such as a negative run as the team led by Ivan Juric have nothing but pride to play for in the remaining part of the season.


Inter Milan vs Verona Head-to-head

Verona have never managed to beat the Nerazzurri. Inter won 16 and drew 4 of 20 encounters with the Gialloblu.

Both teams scored in five of the last six head to head affairs, though.

Inter celebrated a 1-2 victory when they played I Gialloblu in the first part of the season at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.


FIORENTINA VS JUVENTUS


The reigning champions quickly returned to winning ways after the last weekend’s defeat at Atalanta. They were the first to concede on Wednesday evening, but still managed to pull off a 3-1 comeback victory over Parma to stay inside the top-four in the Serie A standings.

Although the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala led the line, the goals came from defenders Alex Sandro (two) and Mathijs De Ligt.


The Bianconeri still need to collect points in the final six games of the season if they are to play the elite continental competition next year. They will travel to Florence to take on bottom-half Fiorentina on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Viola will also come into the match on a high after snapping their four-game winless streak with a 1-2 away victory at Hellas Verona on Tuesday.


Fiorentina vs Juventus Head-to-head

Juventus have been the dominant force in this match-up historically, but they suffered the toughest defeat of this season just against Fiorentina.

It happened in mid-December last year when Viola shockingly demolished the Bianconeri 0-3 in Turin.

It is also interesting to note that just one of the last seven head to head meetings between the two sides saw goals scored at both ends.


SEVILLA VS GRANADA


Los Palanganas are the best team in the competition based on recent form. They are delivering win after win, and have secured themselves a fourth spot in the table.

Note that they have a 17-point lead over the fifth-placed Sociedad, and with just six match-days remaining, Julen Lopetegui’s men need just one more win to ensure a top-four finish, and thus a ticket to the next edition of the Champions League.

Going on, they are also trailing by a single point below the third-placed Barca, and are trailing by just six points below toppers, Atleti.

As such, Los Palanganas could even go for the title, and since they have practically confirmed a top-four spot, they have nothing to lose and could go all out to make it happen.

Meanwhile, the Nasrids are going through a dismal stretch at the moment, and are losing almost every other game. They are conceding goals in plenty, and especially on the road they have been one of the worst teams in the Spanish top flight lately.

Finally, Lopetegui’s men also have a good h2h record against this foe over the years, and particularly so at this venue.

As such, expect a Sevilla victory this Sunday.


Sevilla vs Granada: Head-to-head (h2h)

Los Palanganas had recorded 11 of the previous 16 overall wins.

They had kept clean sheets in four of the past seven meetings.

At this venue, the hosts had recorded six of the last seven clashes.

The hosts had scored a total of 21 goals from the previous seven appearances here


These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

5 Odds Of Straight Win ACCA on ZEbet

 5 Odds Of Straight Win Odds ACCA on ZEbet





It's another Saturday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe


 Liverpool vs Newcastle 


Steve Bruce welcomed the fact that “the big six have took a slapping” over their duplicitous attempts to get even richer at the expense of the football pyramid and would enjoy landing another on Liverpool as he looks to secure Newcastle’s safety. Back-to-back wins have bolstered those prospects but Newcastle have won only one Premier league  game at Anfield – in April 1994 – and Liverpool have won more home games against them than any other club in the Premier League  era. Now that Champions League qualification is presumably important again to Liverpool’s owners, they will be looking to Jürgen Klopp’s team to provide a timely distraction.


Liverpool form- LLWWWD

Newcastle form- DDLDWW


Westham Vs Chelsea


West Ham and Chelsea duking it out for a place in the top four should easily be the game of the weekend (sorry Carabao Cup final) and could be one of the games of the season. The bigger picture of the European Super League fiasco is a grim one but small thanks should be paid to Chelsea for firing up their rivals as a win for West Ham would leapfrog them above the breakaway boys into fourth. Just thinking about the prospect raises a smile. The task for David Moyes is a tough one though without Declan Rice to martial a midfield loaded with quality on the other side of the ball. Jesse Lingard is in incredible form though and a goal or two from him could be enough with Chelsea scoring only once in their past three matches in all competitions


Westham form: WLDWWL

Chelsea form: WWDLWD


Real madrid vs Real Betis


Real Madrid will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in Spain's top flight when they continue their domestic campaign at home to high-flying Real Betis on Saturday night.

Los Blancos, who are currently top of the La Liga table, will enter the match off the back of a 3-0 victory at Cadiz, while Betis occupy fifth position, level on points with sixth-placed Villarreal.

Betis will be looking to take advantage of any uncertainty in the Real Madrid ranks when they make the trip to the Spanish capital, and Manuel Pellegrini's side have plenty to fight for this season.

Indeed, a record of 14 wins, seven draws and 11 defeats from 32 matches has seen them collect 49 points, leaving them in fifth position in the table, level on points with sixth-placed Villarreal.


Real Madrid La Liga form: WWWWDW



Real Madrid form (all competitions): WWWDDW


Real Betis La Liga form: LWDDDD


Metz Vs PSG


Metz have impressed this season and come into this game in 9th position but the club are currently going through average form.

With just 2 points claimed in their last 15 chances of a Europa League place look over. Last weekend they were able to draw 0-0 with Reims but we would have to go back to the end of February for their last win which came against Bordeaux.

At home Metz have only won 5 games so far and their recent home form has been very poor with 4 losses here in a row. Their last defeat at home came against Lille in an encounter that finished 0-2.

PSG came back to beat Saint Etienne and spare some blushes as they won 3-2 in Paris. That result means that the reigning champions are just 1 point behind league leaders Lille with five games to go.

But there is pressure from all sides given that Monaco are just a point behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Indeed only 3 points separates 1st from 4th. PSG have won their last 2 games in a row but have lost 2 from their last five which has been unlike them.

On the road PSG have the 2nd best record in Ligue 1 and have won 35 points from a possible 48. This includes winning their last 5 games in a row.


Metz vs PSG: Head to Head


Last season PSG won this fixture 2-0.


PSG have won the last 10 meetings in a row.


PSG have scored 13 goals past Metz in the last four meetings.



Mainz Vs Bayern Munich 


Bayern Munich can be crowned Bundesliga champions for the ninth successive season with top-scorer Robert Lewandowski returning from injury and eyeing the league's all-time record of 40 goals in a single campaign.

Bayern are ten points clear at the top of the league and an away win at Mainz will guarantee the title with three games remaining.

Head coach Hansi Flick dropped a bombshell last weekend by saying he wants to be released from his contract at the end of the term and wants to sign off with the league title.


The Bavarians are boosted by the presence of Lewandowski, who has missed their last six games with a knee injury.

The Poland striker has netted 35 goals this season and is five short of Gerd Mueller's all-time league record of 40 set in 1971/72.


PSV Vs Groningen


PSV has lost only one game so far in their recent nine attempts in Eredivisie. The host is at the second spot on the table and has leveled points with AZ.

The home team cannot afford to drop points with AZ cutting it close this season. They are on the back of a double win, including a 0-2 win on the road against Venlo last time out in their schedule.

Groningen has lost three of their recent five matches in the league. They will visit on the back of a 0-2 loss at home against Heerenveen in the previous encounter.

Surprisingly, their only win in that period came on the road against Venlo last time out. This will make things interesting at Philips Stadion, but the host is likely to have bragging rights.


PSV Eindhoven vs Groningen Head-to-head (h2h)


The home team has been unbeaten for the past 14 meetings.


The guest has only three wins from their last 20 matches.


Both teams have scored in four of their recent five fixtures.


Their previous encounter gave a 1-3 away win for PSV.


The host has lost at home only once since 1989 and that was in 2014.


Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Home/Away Wins ACCA backing the awesome favorites to triumph against their opponents. 


These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

Lagos FA hosts NSF football teams; urges players to focus on career and education

 Lagos FA hosts NSF football teams; urges players to focus on career and education



The Lagos State Football Association (LSFA) hosted the Silver medalist Team Lagos men's and women's football teams at the just concluded 2020 National Sports Festival in Benin City on Sunday at the Soccer Temple, Agege.


LSFA Chairman who also double as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) 1st Vice President, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi appreciated Team Lagos Football teams and urged the players to focus on their career and education.



"We are here to welcome you back home and to say thank you to the team's contingent, coaches, players, and backroom staff, we are proud of you all. We appreciate your attitude and the kind of football you played. Your progress is our mission, you have got the experience and you all will be stronger. You all have made us proud," emotional Akinwunmi said.


Akinwunmi commended the Lagos State government and the Sports Commission for their support despite the challenges the team encountered during the qualifiers and accreditation of players for the Festival.



"We appreciate the Lagos State government and the Lagos State Sports Commission for their support. We are ready to support your progress, we know what we have done to support different kids in Lagos, footballers and also those willing to acquire education. We have saved a lot from slavery contracts as well.


"Football is gradual, with the right support you will get there. You have to take the right steps, if you are patient you will get there. You all need education, educated players is a better player. An educated player as security after playing. 


"We are not interested in football agencies, we are only interested in your success. We are here to guide you and support your progress. This is the beginning for you all, you have to continue working hard. The glory is for us in Lagos, this is the reason why we have to work together as a family. My board members have been fantastic and we are proud that our work has come to fruition."


LSFA Vice-Chairman Otunba Tade Azeez described the team's podium finish as the 'Golden' Silver medal.



"We are proud of your performance, it was a Golden Silver finish for us. We heard what happened in Edo State, irrespective of that, we are proud of your performance," an elated Azeez said.



The head coach of the men's team, Hamidi Suleiman shower praises on his boys for their performance in Benin City despite the drama and intimidation in the final game.



He said; "We appreciate the opportunity for us to compete in the Festival, I want to salute my boys for their performance despite the challenges in Benin City. It was an amazing experience and I think we were good ambassadors of the State. We lost in the final, football is a game of chance, but despite losing the final game, we were the center of attention for those at the stadium."


The captain of the women's team, Asooto Franca narrated the experience they garnered at the Festival.



"In our first game, we played with just eight players because of clearance issues, but we were still able to secure a result. Then, the issue of penalties came up as a tiebreaker for the team that would progress and we survived the hurdle. Our performance in the semifinal was superb and I think we gave our best in the final. The experience wasn't good in the final, tensed atmosphere and intimidation," Franca revealed.

Sweet 66 Odds Of Straight Wins Odds ACCA on ZEbet

 Sweet 66 Odds Of Straight Win Odds ACCA on ZEbet





It's another Sunday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe

Arsenal vs Fulham

Aleksandar Mitrovic gave his teammates a rousing pep talk in the wake of last week’s desolating setback against Wolves, and Fulham need to show it has sunk in. Defeat at the Emirates would be their fifth in a row and demand a miraculous run in order to escape relegation. Wins are required but Arsenal are of a similar mind and refuse to give up on making the European places: it is the start of a relatively kind run-in for Mikel Arteta’s side and, while he may rotate, the manager will not allow his players to focus solely on Europa League salvation.

Arsenal Form: WDWDLW

Fulham form:  LWLLLL


Manchester United vs Burnley

Manchester United can cut the gap to Manchester City to eight points by beating Burnley but even then only six games will remain so Ole Gunnar Solskjær is right to rate as unrealistic the chance of a late surge for the title. But finishing second is an improvement on last year so there is an incentive against a Burnley team who will aim to be problematic for the home side.


Manchester United Form: DDWWWW

Burnley Form: LDDWLL


In the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund will look to put aside a disappointing midweek result in the Champions League when they face Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Edin Terzic’s side took the lead against Manchester City but the quality of the Premier League outfit saw them turn the game around and win the tie.

Securing Champions League football for next season will be a priority for Borussia Dortmund, but they are running out of time.

Dortmund are seven points behind Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga table and will look to close the gap when they face a struggling Werder Bremen side.

Relegation is still looming for Werder Bremen, as they are just four points clear of the relegation playoff spot.

The head-to-head record between the two teams is pretty competitive as Borussia Dortmund have won 45 games while Werder Bremen have won 41. A total of 19 games have ended as draws in this fixture.

Dortmund will be slight favorites heading into this game, though, as their recent results in the league have been better than Werder's, who have lost four in a row.

Werder Bremen form guide: L-L-L-W-L


Getafe vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid make a short trip to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday evening to take on Getafe in what is a must-win game for Los Blancos.

Zinedine Zidane's men are only one point behind fierce rivals Atletico Madrid and have their eyes fixated on a potential 35th La Liga title.

Real Madrid find themselves in incredible form, having just secured qualification to the Champions League semi-finals. They also emerged victorious in the recent El Clasico against Barcelona.

Home side Getafe are winless in five straight games but can prove to be tricky customers on their day. They held Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw in March, and Real Madrid know better than to take their next opponents lightly.

Getafe have only beaten their famous city rivals on three occasions before. Real Madrid have picked up the win 21 times, while two matches have ended in draws.

Getafe's last victory against Los Merengues came way back in 2012. Since then, Real Madrid have beaten the Azulones every single time, bar one.

Getafe form guide: L-D-D-D-L

Real Madrid form guide: W-W-W-W-D


Nantes vs Lyon

Lyon lock horns with Nantes at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau on Sunday. Lyon have been impressive this season and hold the upper hand going into this game.

Nantes are in 19th place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and face an intense relegation battle in the coming weeks. The Canaries suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against Rennes in their previous game and cannot afford to drop points in this match.

Lyon have also slipped up in recent weeks and find themselves five points behind league-leaders Lille in the league table. Les Gones eased past Angers by a 3-0 margin last weekend and will want a similar result from this game.

Lyon have an excellent record against Nantes and have won 12 games out of a total of 20 matches played between the two teams. Nantes have managed only four victories against Lyon and will need to take it up a notch in this match.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place last year and ended in a comfortable 3-0 victory for Lyon. Lucas Paqueta was excellent on the day and will play a pivotal role in this match.

PSG vs St- Etienne 

After beating Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain now focus their attention on St-Etienne in Ligue 1 action.

PSG are currently second in the table, three points behind league leaders Lille, while St-Etienne are 13th with just six more matches left to play.

Mauricio Pochettino will be worried about his side's home form as they have not won at the Parc des Princes since overcoming Nice back in mid-February. In recent weeks, PSG have lost to Monaco, Nantes, Lille and Bayern Munich while drawing with Barcelona at home.

Meanwhile, St-Etienne have won their last two games on the road against Angers and Nice respectively.

Of the 38 games played between both teams, Paris Saint-Germain have won on 23 occasions and lost five. The last time they met, it was Pochettino's first game in charge at PSG.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions were held to a 1-1 draw away from home. Romain Hamouma took the lead for Claude Puel's side before Moise Kean equalized.

Both clubs managed the same number of shots (11) but St-Etienne (5) had one more shot on target than their opponents (4).

To regain their top spot in the league, Pochettino will have to rally his team to put up a strong display against St-Etienne to earn three points.

Bordeaux Vs Monaco

The Ligue 1 is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Monaco take on Bordeaux at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux on Sunday. Monaco have been excellent in recent weeks and are the favourites to win this match.

Bordeaux are in 15th place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and have endured a difficult campaign so far. The home side suffered a stunning 4-1 defeat last weekend and has plenty of work to do ahead of this game.

Monaco, on the other hand, have exceeded expectations this season and currently find themselves in third place in the league table. Les Monegasques have an outside chance of winning the Ligue 1 title and cannot afford to drop points in this match.

Bordeaux have a surprisingly excellent record against Monaco and have won11 games out of a total of 25 matches played between the two teams. Monaco have managed only eight victories against Bordeaux and need to step up this weekend.

The previous meeting between these two French sides took place in November last year and ended in a 4-0 victory for Monaco. Bordeaux struggled to cope with their opponents on the day and will need to do a better job this weekend.

Enticing 17 Odds Of mixed ACCA on ZEbet

 Enticing 17 Odds Of mixed ACCA on ZEbet





It's another Saturday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe, after last week’s win of the 14 odds ACCA, lets try to keep the winning run going.


MANCHESTER CITY VS CHELSEA


Manchester City’s latest obstacle in their path to hoovering up every piece of silverware available is a tussle with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. After both side’s progressed to the Champions League semi-finals it will be interesting to see if either side shows signs of fatigue from their respective endeavours. City’s hard-fought and emotional comeback has the more likely chance of producing a dip as Pep Guardiola’s side finally got over the hump of previous failures in the quarters. The chance of a legendary quadruple could allow for them to focus quickly on the task at hand, though. If that is the case Chelsea could be up against it as Tuchel still searches for his best lineup in attack. Four-times FA Cup winner Olivier Giroud will be desperate for a Chelsea start to show he is, as usual, being unfairly overlooked.

MANCHESTER CITY form: Form WWWWLW (all competitions)

CHELSEA Form: WWLWWL (all competitions)



NEWCASTLE VS WEST HAM

In Steve Bruce’s mind David Moyes has already won the manager of the year award for steering West Ham into unlikely Champions League contention. That would have been hard to envisage when Newcastle won convincingly in east London at the start of the season. But back then few could have imagined that a Bruce ensemble propelled by the attacking skills of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin would end up in a relegation skirmish. Injuries to that pair represent a big reason why Newcastle continue to look nervously over their shoulder but with the two forwards restored to full fitness they have reason for cautious optimism that they may have opened up a nine-point advantage on relegation rivals Fulham by the time the final whistle blows.

NEWCASTLE form: DDDLDW

WEST HAM Form:  LWLDWW


In the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich will look to increase their lead at the top of the Bundesliga table when they face Wolfsburg away from home on Saturday.

The Bavarians have had a disappointing week as they were knocked out of the Champions League on the away goals rule.

Hansi Flick’s side were also dumped out of the DFB Pokal earlier this year, so they only have the Bundesliga title to play for in the coming weeks.

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, have exceeded expectations this season and find themselves eight points clear of Borussia Dortmund, who are fifth in the league.

With Champions League football looking increasingly likely for next season, Oliver Glasner’s side will hope to impress against Bayern Munich. 

The two sides have faced off 47 times in the Bundesliga, and Bayern Munich have won the fixture a whopping 37 times.

The defending champions have also won nine of their last 10 games against Wolfsburg and will look to continue that run.

The Bavarians are expected to face a sterner challenge this time, however, as Wolfsburg have been one of the most consistent teams so far this season.

Both teams failed to win their last league game and will look to pick up a win come Saturday.

Bayern Munich form guide: W-W-W-W-D


BAYER LEVERKUSEN VS KOLN

Fresh off a goalless draw against Hoffenheim, Bayer Leverkusen take on Koln at the Bay Arena.

Both sides have struggled for results in recent weeks and will aim to finish the season strongly, starting with a win on Saturday.

Seated in sixth place in the Bundesliga standings, Bayer Leverkusen have endured a rollercoaster season so far.

Die Werkself had a brilliant start to the campaign, going unbeaten until the final game of 2020, where they lost to Bayern Munich in December.

Since then, they have suffered a disappointing dip in form, suffering eight league defeats and crashing out of both the Europa League and DFB Pokal.

Hannes Wolf’s men ended their two-game winless run with a 2-1 win over struggling Schalke two weeks ago. However, they quickly crashed back to earth as they were held to an uneventful goalless draw against Hoffenheim last time out.

Bayer Leverkusen are just two points behind fifth-placed Borussia Dortmund and could leapfrog the Black and Yellows with a win on Saturday.

In their last 28 meetings across all competitions, Bayer Leverkusen have picked up 17 wins and six draws. Koln are the underdogs in the fixture, managing just five wins.

 Extra: Ilaji Hotels And Sports Resort To Hold Scouting And Coaching Programme





All is set for the Ilaji Hotels and Sports Resort Scouting and Coaching programme to go down from Saturday 1st of May through Friday 7th.

NSF: Main Organizing Committee Strips Bayelsa Athlete Off Six Medals

 NSF: Main Organizing Committee Strips Bayelsa Athlete Off Six Medals



The Main organizing committe of the National Sports Festival in Edo State has disqualified Dino Ebarakumo, thereby stripping him off the medals he has won so far.


Ebarakumo according to reports registered for team Rivers heading into the festival, but eventually, fraudulently turned up for team Bayelsa without a proper clearance by the MOC.


With the development, the organizers say the four gold and two silver medals he has so far won have been cancelled.


Meanwhile, there are insinuations from different quarters that team Bayelsa has other athletes it poached right at the venue without proper documentation.


It remains to be seen if more of Team Bayelsa athletes will suffer the same fate in the next couple of days

"We Won't Be Cajoled To End The League Abruptly" - Club Owners Fire Warning To NWFL

"We Won't Be Cajoled To End The League Abruptly" - Club Owners Fire Warning To NWFL



While the dust is gradually settling on the sudden change in the format of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) from straight format to abridged version, with the top six clubs on the log proceeding to the Super Six playoff, club owners have come with another twist to the whole drama by rejecting the idea to end the regular season after matchday 13.


In a 360 degree turn, the club owners who had earlier voted, in a virtual meeting with the league board for the super six and relegation play offs have rejected the decision and rather want the league to continue with match day 14 games.


This stems from the virtual meeting held by the club owners and managers on Friday, running through Saturday afternoon.



In the communique released by the club owners after the meeting, they want the season to continue with with the initial straight format and resume with Matchday 14 matches instead of going ahead with the Super Six and Survival Play-Offs.


They also proposed finalists at the last NWFL season should represent Nigeria in the CAF Women's Champions League zonal qualifiers, thus putting to rest the need to end the abruptly.


According to the club owners, since the league didn't end due to the need to meet up with next season's continental commitment, it was logical to hand the tickets to those who reached the final of the last NWFL women's play off in 2019.


It will be recalled that Rivers Angels pipped Confluence Queens 1-0 at the 2019 playoffs final in Lagos.


The owners also elected to have no relegation of teams, rather proposed for the restoration of the league to its original 16-team format of which two promoted teams will complete the number if no teams are relegated.


This is due to the fact that Heartland Queens and Adamawa Queens were expelled by the NWFL due to non compliance with club licensing.


According to feelers from the meeting, only three clubs disagreed with decision of the Club Owners.


The NWFL Super Six is scheduled to hold in Ijebu Ode starting from the 19th of April, 2021 of which the winner will be crowned the league champions and qualify automatically for the CAF Women's Champions League while the runner up will proceed to the WAFU Zonal qualifiers scheduled for May.



Bayelsa Queens, Delta Queens, Rivers Angels, Edo Queens, FC Robo Queens and Sunshine Queens have qualified for the Super Six.

Enticing 14 Odds Of mixed ACCA on ZEbet

 Enticing 14 Odds Of mixed ACCA on ZEbet



By Kingsley Oyero


It's another Sunday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe. 


In the English Premier League, Manchester United’s place in the top four looks secure for the time being so a tepid draw – like many of those produced since being thrashed 6-1 by Tottenham – against José Mourinho’s side would suffice. Spurs on the other hand need a win to catch up and Mourinho will be eager to stick it to his former employers. A full complement of defenders will certainly help the endeavour after last week’s misfire against Newcastle

Tottenham Form: WWWLWD

Leading scorer Kane 19

Manchester United: Form WDDWWW

In the Italian Serie A, Atalanta continue their bid to secure a place among the top four, but Fiorentina aim to end on a high under Beppe Iachini.

La Dea have won three on the bounce since the 1-0 defeat to Inter on March 8 and must continue on the same path to keep the challengers away.

Napoli are only two points behind in fifth and Gian Piero Gasperini seems set to rely on Colombian forwards Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata another time.

The Orobici are without injured Hans Hateboer and Italy international Matteo Pessina, who tested positive for COVID-19 after the recent international break.

Fiorentina started the second stint under Iachini with a 1-1 draw against Genoa last time, when they finished the match with 10 men due to Franck Ribery’s sending off.

The Viola must therefore cope without the French winger and are also without suspended Erick Pulgar.


Form Guide: Fiorentina (D L W D L) Atalanta (W W W L W)

Stat fact: Atalanta have won back-to-back Serie A games against Fiorentina and the last time they won three consecutive league games against the Viola was in 1942.


INTER VS CAGLIARI

Inter can begin the Scudetto preparations after going 11 points clear, but Radja Nainggolan’s Cagliari are desperate to avoid relegation.

The Nerazzurri notched up a 10th consecutive Serie A victory with the midweek rescheduled 2-1 win over Sassuolo and it’ll take something truly remarkable now to stop them taking the title. Marcelo Brozovic and Alessandro Bastoni return from suspension, but Nicolò Barella misses the meeting with his hometown club.

Cagliari had a boost when Leonardo Semplici took over from Eusebio Di Francesco, but that seems to have dissipated now, with three consecutive defeats. Alessio Cragno caught COVID-19, so Simone Aresti steps into the net.

It’s surprising the Sardinians are in the bottom three with the likes of ex-Inter stars Diego Godin and Nainggolan in the squad.

Form Guide: Inter (W W W W W) Cagliari (L L L D W)

Stat fact: Inter have won their last 11 Serie A home fixtures, a run only bettered in 1950, 1971 and 2011.


JUVENTUS VS CAGLIARI

Juventus are not yet guaranteed a top-four finish and host a Genoa side who have one defeat in the last five games.

The Old Lady return to the Allianz Stadium after their 2-1 win over Napoli in the rescheduled fixture from matchday 3 on Wednesday. Wojciech Szczesny is expected to take his starting spot back after Gigi Buffon replaced him against the Azzurri. Either Merih Demiral or Giorgio Chiellini will partner Matthijs de Ligt in centre defence as Leonardo Bonucci tested positive for COVID. Paulo Dybala may start along with Cristiano Ronaldo up front.

Nicolò Rovella will face Juventus for the first time since the Old Lady signed him in January. The midfielder has remained to Genoa on loan from the Bianconeri and will start along with Milan Badelj and Miha Zajc in midfield with Kevin Strootman suspended. Mattia Destro and Gianluca Scamacca are likely to start up front.

Form Guide: Juventus (W D L W W) Genoa (D W D L D)

Stat fact: Both Juventus and Genoa have dropped 10 points from winning position this season, but the Old Lady have gained as many, while Genoa have managed nine.



Monaco Vs Dijon


Monaco will be the big odds on favourites to win this game as they can still dream of winning what would feel like a surprise league title.

Monaco come into this fixture in 3rd place and are only 4 points behind league leaders Lille. Monaco have won their last 2 games where they have beaten Saint Etienne and Metz and on both occasions they won those duels 4-0.

There are goals all over this Monaco side and in the last game Wissam Ben Yedder scored 2 goals, that was important for him because at times he has really struggled this season.

At Stade Louis II Monaco have lost just once and in fact they have the best home record in the league where they have won 35 points from a possible 48.

Dijon are in bottom place with 15 points and will be relegated this season. They have lost 20 games winning just two times and last weekend they were defeated 2-0 away to Marseille.

Dijon have lost 10 games away from home from 15 played and have lost their last five in a row conceding 12 goals, there seems like little hope for the club in this game to get anything.


Lyon Vs Angers

Les Gones are one of the best teams in the whole competition. In fact, they are a perennial contender for the CL spots from France, and they are in pursuit of one this season as well.

As of now, they are placed fourth in the table, and will be eligible for an entry into the Europa League if they maintain this spot till the end of the season – which is just seven match-days away.

However, their objective is a ticket to the CL, and for that to happen, they need to finish in the top-three of the table.

While catching toppers Lille seem a bit impractical, they could make a push for the second spot (currently in possession of PSG), or attempt to climb to the third position – currently held by Monaco.

Meanwhile, Le SCO are going through an inconsistent run, and are dropping points in every other game. They are on the road this weekend, and in such games, they have been a failure all through this season.

On top of that, they have also struggled against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.

Likely, expect Lyon to emerge victorious this Sunday

It's another Saturday offering exciting football actions across leagues in Europe. 

In the Premier league, Jürgen Klopp said October’s 7-2 defeat at Villa Park will be on his mind as Liverpool look to end a damaging sequence of six successive losses at Anfield. “We have to put things right,” he said of Liverpool’s heaviest league defeat since 1963. Victory, which would be Liverpool’s 100th in all competitions at Anfield under Klopp, would not only enhance prospects of a top-four finish but improve confidence before next week’s Champions League return against Real Madrid. Aston Villa, however, can move to within two points of the champions with an eighth away win of the campaign. Only Manchester City and Chelsea have kept more clean sheets this term than the visitors’ 14

Chelsea have to get things right domestically before facing Porto on Tuesday after their shambolic thrashing at the hands of West Brom. Selhurst Park feels like one of the last places Thomas Tuchel would pick to do so but without the suspended Thiago Silva, Chelsea have a better chance of putting to bed an unfortunately timed week of turmoil. Palace have a defender enjoying the twilight of his career rather more in Gary Cahill. The former Chelsea stalwart can serve a reminder that he may have been let go a touch too soon and damage their prospects for Champions League qualification next season.

In the German Bundesliga, Werder Bremen host RB Leipzig at the Weserstadion in their round 28 fixture of the Bundesliga today.

The hosts have lost three games in a row in the league but bounced back well in the DFB Pokal, recording a 1-0 away win over Jahn Regensburg.

Leipzig's 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich last week was their first defeat in the league since January and they are now seven points behind the leaders in the standings.

After this encounter, the sides will again cross paths in the DFB Pokal with the semi-final fixture on 30th April.

Bayern Munich vs Union Berlin

Bayern Munich aim to put their European heartbreak behind them when they host Union Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Saturday for a Bundesliga clash.

The reigning league and Champions League winners were beaten 3-2 at home by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday in the first-leg of their last-16 clash.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller helped the Bavarians fight back from 2-0 down to restore parity, but Kylian Mbappe netted a winner for the visitors, 20 minutes from time.

It was their first defeat in Europe since March 2019 while their seven-game winning run in all competitions came to an end too.

On the league front though, Hansi Flick's boys have maintained a fine run, winning each of their last five games and are firmly on course for a ninth consecutive Meisterschale.

They now come up against a stuttering Union Berlin side that has won only twice from their last 11 outings, dropping out of contention for the Europa Conference League in the process

In what is only their second-ever campaign in the Bundesliga, the Iron Ones are still on their way to a top-half finish, after coming 11th in the end-season standings last year.

 Edo 2020: SWAN President frowns at poor treatment of members



The national president of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Comrade Honour Sirawo, has lamented what he describes as "the poor treatment" of members of the Association at the ongoing National Sports Festival, Edo 2020. Mr. Honour while addressing members at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium, Thursday, decried the inability of the organizers of the Games to provide basic media amenities and the bare minimums pertaining to the media coverage of the event to members of SWAN.


He attributed part of the struggles and inadequacies of the organizers to the inability of the federal government through the federal Ministry of Youth and Sports to financially support the government of Edo state which had exhausted its budget for the Festival after the competition suffered a couple of postponements before it eventually commenced on April 2, 2021. Mr. Sirawo who is also the Permanent Secretary of the Rivers state Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, however called on members to remain calm and continue with their "commendable coverage" of the Games while he continues to interface with the Games' organizers with a view to improving the working conditions of members at the event. 



The sports championship which is currently taking place in Benin city, the Edo state capital, is the twentieth edition of the biennial competition and has participants drawn from all thirty-six states of the Federation and the FCT.

 Tasty 12 Odds of Straight Wins ACCA on Zebet



It's another Sunday offering exciting football action across leagues in Europe


In the Premier league, The title may never have been a realistic proposition but a win against Brighton would give a healthy boost to wrapping up a top-four finish early so Manchester United can focus on trying to win the Europa League and FA Cup. Graham Potter’s side begin a difficult run to the finish line with Everton and Chelsea following this and a final three games against West Ham, Manchester City and Arsenal. The omens begin poorly as Brighton have conceded three goals in each of their past four meetings with United, losing each time. The meat of the run-in sandwich against Sheffield United, Leeds and Wolves will be crucial to their hopes of survival. Then again Newcastle’s form is so poor it may matter very little.

Newcastle Vs Tottenham

José Mourinho’s mentor, Sir Bobby Robson, believed he should manage Newcastle one day and it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that the Special One could yet eventually end up at St James’ Park. Mourinho may not exactly be flavour of the month in north London at the moment but, compared with Steve Bruce, the Tottenham manager seems almost popular. There was widespread astonishment on Tyneside that Bruce was not sacked following the recent abysmal 3-0 defeat at Brighton and Newcastle’s manager desperately needs an improvement here. Much may hinge on whether Allan Saint-Maximin is fit to return for the home side

Marseille vs Dijon

Sampaoli’s men lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Nice. In the meantime, David Linares’s men lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Reims.
Going on, the Olympians were unbeaten in seven of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and they had remained so in nine of their former twelve appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on an 11-fixture losing streak, and they had conceded two or more goals in five of their last six games. They are also on a long winless run in h2h clashes, and have conceded in plenty in those match-ups too.
Taking into account all these stats, expect Marseille to secure an easy win this Sunday. Do also count on a boatload of goals this weekend.

PSV has been winless in their recent two fixtures in the campaign, including a 2-0 loss on the road to the likes of AZ Alkmaar last time out in their schedule. That loss, however, followed a six-game unbeaten run in the league. The host is 11 points behind the toppers on the table and is at the second spot.
Heracles is trying to get into the top seven and their chances cannot be written off. The away team will come in hot with a four-game unbeaten run in the league as of late. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Sparta Rotterdam in the previous encounter in their schedule.


Ado Den Haag Vs Utrecht

Den Haag extended their winless streak in the campaign to 12 games in a row. They are at the ultimate bottom of the table after the three consecutive losses in their schedule.
The host will boot up for their second consecutive home match after losing the last attempt to Ajax with a 0-5 scoreline. Expect the home team to continue their winless run in the league with their current form.
Utrecht has maintained their play-off place this season on the table with a victory last time out. They defeated Sittard with a 0-1 scoreline on the road. The away team can look forward to strengthening their foothold on a top-seven position with another win here.
With their 25-point lead over the host, the visitor has a good chance to take all three points from the weekend clash.

Heerenveen vs Ajax

Heerenveen has only one win in their last five matches in the league. The host is in a mixed form in the campaign with two losses and draws each in their recent five fixtures in Eredivisie. They are winless for the past two clashes, following a goalless draw at home with Twente last time out in their schedule.
Ajax is at the top of the table for yet another match week, thanks to their three-game winning streak in the campaign schedule. The away team has been unbeaten for the past 20 league clashes this season with just three draws in it. Expect a high-scoring affair when they visit on the back of a 5-0 win at home against Den Haag.
