Sunderland (42 million euros) and Charlton (7 million euros) are completely different teams in the selection of players. Guests today lost their top-scorer John Magennis, and recently in a friendly match injured Lily Taylor purchased from Wimbledon (top scorer).
Also, Igor Vetokele (0.8 million), who will miss another 6 weeks, will not help the team, the second most expensive in the team. Also on Tariq Fosu, Billy Clark and Ben Reeves injuries.
Anfernee Djiksteel in question Believe that the odds on Sunderland is very high. The fair coefficient here, in my opinion, is around 1.70-1.80.
Both teams have difficulty in recruiting players to defend. Several players of the defensive plan were eliminated from the system.
So, for Valenciennes today will not be able to play: defenders Geoffrey Kyuffo, Simcoe Niakate, Kama Khanum and holding midfielder Thiago Xavier.
Auxerre, who has similar problems in defense, went to this game without two defenders-Abdullah Bach and Kenny-van Boto.
Croatian football is on the rise, the representative of the team Dominic Levkovich plays in Zagreb. The quality of the players "Dynamo" above. Judging by the results of friendly meetings, "Dynamo" passed a good preseason training and is currently on the rise. No key losses on both sides.
Rosenborg have a much stronger team than the Icelanders, more players with extensive experience in European matches. The planned return of three key players. Rosenborg were the dominant team in the first game, where Valur did not create many chances. On a press-conferences the trainer of Rosenborg said that will be the strongest team.
Valois doesn't have much experience in European football, and over the last 2 seasons they have lost all their matches — including 1-10 against the Brondby.
A lot of support is expected in Norway, and Valur is not used to such a large number of spectators. Unlike the first guest match, the hosts will play on the natural lawn.
I do not understand why on guests such inflated KF. The hosts won their last 3 matches, but these games were with the lower teams. The guests played against the top of the table. I consider the guests to be the favourites of the meeting. Plus the home team of the players injured
This fixture sounds like it could be a World Cup Quarter or Semi-Final but the reality is neither of these sides will be in Russia this summer and both are very much living off past glories. Both sides suffered embarrassment in qualifying, with Sweden finishing above the Dutch in their group before knocking Italy out in a play-off.
You sense those outcomes were more the result of the fall from grace these two proud football nations have suffered in recent years rather than any real Swedish brilliance. A quick look through the squads that both sides have named for this friendly and it’s hard not to be struck by the lack of genuine top quality in each camp.
The Dutch have been hit by the recent retirements of the likes of Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder and there is a distinct lack of emerging talent in a country that has always flourished in that regard. Ajax’s 18 year old defender Matthijs de Ligt is certainly one to keep an eye on but even at this point when they clearly need to look to the future, there is only one other play under the age of 23 in this squad.
Italy have been a bit bolder in terms of throwing younger players into these friendlies but Roberto Mancini’s squad isn’t a particularly exciting one either. Only the recalled Mario Balotelli has scored more than 6 international goals, while fellow forwards Lorenzo Insigne and Simone Zaza both have very poor records at this level.
The midfield is very inexperienced with only Alessandro Florenzi having made it past 10 caps, while more proven performers such as Marco Verratti and Giorgio Chiellini aren’t involved so it’s hard to really feel confident about this Italian team. They’ve already played twice during this international break and they didn’t really impress in either of those games. They edged out a fairly average Saudi Arabia side 2-1 before being well beaten in France and it’s now just 2 wins in 8 internationals for Italy.
The Netherlands have at least had a bit longer to get used to the idea that they are no longer footballing giants, at least in terms of their current talent pool. They’ve only lost 1 of their last 8 internationals, a 1-0 loss to England in Amsterdam and it’s worth noting they did impressively win 3-0 in Portugal in March.
They may lack the creativity of yesteryear but they have plenty of pace up front, with the likes of Memphis Depay and this game may just suit them as it should allow them to play on the counter.
Overall backing Netherlands Double Chance could well be the way to go.
Ronald Koeman didn't exactly impress the Everton fans too much during his time at Goodison Park but he's certainly started life pretty well as Netherlands boss. It's hard to imagine a World Cup without the Dutch but he'll be doing his best to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Three consecutive away wins in friendlies against Scotland, Romania and Portugal (3-0 no less) suggest the team may be about to be a force to be reckoned with over the next few years.
Slovakia will be feeling sick about not having at least made the play-offs. They finished as runners-up to England but were the worst second-placed team of any and missed out.
You can take Koeman's men here at 11/10 but it may just be worth pushing the boat out a little more here. Each of the two sides' last eight games featured at least three goals and given the Netherlands scored seven goals across their last three friendly away fixtures, there's evidence that this is an attacking side the former Barcelona man is trying to build here. Former Premier League men Ryan Babel and Memphis Depay have been in particularly good form for their country and at a slightly bigger price
