the 35th match day of Spanish La Liga 2 where Ponferradina will host Racing Santander. The hosts sit 9th and collected 47 points. Racing Santander sit 22nd place with 29 points. Ponferradina kept alive their chances of accessing at least the promotion playoff round to get a place in the La liga, their rival is last and although they have improved in the last games, Ponferradina is one of the best teams in the championship at home. They have only lost a game in 17 games with 8 wins and 8 draws, in addition to the average number of goals conceded below 0.65. I am going with the victory of Ponferradina
Villa are a good team, fighting to stay in the division, self-esteem really high after reaching the Wembley (League Cup) final. Very difficult match, we have to go with all the potential we have, forgetting that two days after we play Leipzig.

Nazareth Illit is going to face Hapoel Umm al Fahm. The hosts are in the 12th place in the league standings. They won only 8 matches of 24. They lost three games in a row before this season pause. Fahm is in the 9th place in the league standings. They got only two points gap to the top 7. If they want to play in the champions group they have to win this match. They play well on trips and against an opponent like Nazareth, they got a huge opportunity to pick up three points. My bet is Fahm to win this clash

We sat down this time two years ago in Moscow for the World Cup. How does it feel now, before your second major tournament in the job?We're better prepared as a whole staff for what lies ahead, the realisation that what got us to this point won't be enough to be successful in the summer. So we are a more experienced group of staff for sure, the playing squad is more experienced in some aspects, and in others we are very young again.

These were two middle of the league table clubs in the second league level last season, and I watched on opening round the game played by Suwon at home against Daejeon in which they played well the first part of the game taking the lead 1-0, and having chances to make it 2-0 but ended the first half just 1-1, and late in the game via the video assistant they conceded a shocking late goal to lose 2-1 the game but I was happy as my bet was on over 2.5 goals there, barely won though.

Coventry have seen 4 matches in a row not going over 2 goals and in 3 of these 4 matches none of the teams scored more than once. The odds here actually look very good for this match to reach 3 goals with how Coventry have been playing. Their defense has held together together well overall and should once again look to place a much more defending game they have done this a few times in a way matches. They have overall been able to limit what teams have done against them on the scoreboard which helps to keep scores low.

He attended his brother's wedding in France last week. He's been struck down ill,\" United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. He's been off two days, which is not beneficial.
