I think Watford will not lose. After the change of coach, the team began to gain points, and do not lose five matches in a row, and on their field they look very convincing in general. Tottenham, after the change of coach, do not play better. In addition, Tottenham have many injured, starting from the goalkeeper and ending with Harry Kane. Bets:

"Double chances: 1X for 1.64"
"Watford to score in the 1st half for 2.18"
I never hid that I was unsympathetic to Jose Mourinho, neither his football, nor his actions. But this time I will bet on him. Yes, the match is fighting. Yes, Watford have improved (even left the relegation zone). But are they going to shred everyone? I think they will soon find themselves in the same place as always: at the “relegation-not relegation” border. Actually they are there. And besides, there is a betting line. And since it orders to bet on 1x for less than 1.7, I would answer: it is not enough. Better then, I would bet on the contrary...

"2-3 goals in a match for 1.97"
"Tottenham Hotspur to win for 2.17"

It is difficult to find interesting odds here: they give very little for the fact that Everton will not lose. Both teams have new coaches, but Everton with Ancelotti look more convincing than West Ham. I believe that this is a game for three results. After all, West Ham can’t lose matches in a row, otherwise why the coach was changed? Bets:

"Both to score for 1.66"
"Everton to score in the 1st half for 1.94"
I think the chances of the guests are a little higher. But not enough to bet on "three-outcomes". But I am almost sure in the goals for and against: both teams are aggressive. There will almost certainly be many corners. Well, goals too. Moreover, I think that no one will be hiding and 0-0 in the first half are unlikely. So, will be goals in the first half. And mutual goals are an easy (for me) choice between “over” and “both to score”. I'm not afraid to combine those bets.

"Both to score and total over 2.5 for 2"
"Total of the first half over 1 for 1.8"

Here will be the victory of Liverpool. But it costs only 1.36 – this is what Manchester United finished out, that the betting line is so much in favor of the hosts. And to bet with a handicap - is somehow scary. Here, maybe just you can play roulette on the goal of Manchester United. Liverpool played seven matches in the championship to nil, having passed without a missed goals an intense New Year's calendar. Manchester United scored not in every match, but just in the last, they remembered how to do it. Let's decide that Manchester United will score. Bets:

"Both to score for 1.92"
"Liverpool to score in both halves: yes for 2.1"
I think that somewhere near the Merseyside’s losses on the points. Of course, they will become champions. But matches, where they are incomparable, are now becoming less. Victories sometimes have to be pulled out in the last minutes. And Liverpool have many matches with mutual goals. From this are the bets and today they are for guests. No matter how stupid it seems to go against the leader.

"Manchester United H (+1.5) for 1.72"
"Both to score for 1.92"

Seville have an ugly match statistics for Santiago Bernabeu, but Real flew to another country for the Super Cup matches, wasted time and energy, and Seville was quietly preparing for the match. Before the Super Cup, Real played three draws in a row, two of them 0-0, and then accidentally scored three to Getafe, when everything that was possible was scored. Although the matches between these teams at Real Madrid’s home are productive and in favor of the hosts, I think it will be very difficult for Real Madrid to win in this match, all the more injured Benzema. Bets:

"Sevilla H (+1) for 1.77"
"Sevilla to score for 1.47"
There is a bit provocative and very accurate (in my opinion) betting line, inviting, directly calling, to bet on Real. Minus goal at home! But I, you know, will abstain. Real gave a lot of energy in matches for the Super cup. And Seville was preparing calmly, for a long time and specifically. So, for me, it makes sense to take a risk. In addition, Madrid do not go to destroy all rivals in a row. Bright matches alternate with dim ones. So “under” in this match is possible. As well as the goal of Sevilla after the break (the guests will impose a high pace, in the hope that Real Madrid will get tired).

"Sevilla H (+1) for 1.77"
"Sevilla to score in the 2nd half for 2.08"

During the New Year holidays Fiorentina recovered after the defeat from Roma, but Napoli with Gattuso are not doing the best. The victory in the cup match against the team from Serie B is unlikely to change anything fundamentally in the balance of power in this match: Napoli have problems, Fiorentina are on the rise. I think that in this match Gattuso will again be difficult to count on victory. Bets:

"Fiorentina H (+1) for 1.74"
"Fiorentina to score for 1.49"
Both teams won their cup matches. I think (as I wrote last time) that for the Neapolitans this recharge is more important. Now they play one decent half each game (the second in Rome, the first against Perugia). Here they have to muster the strength for both. It may help that Fiorentina even with a one and a half lineup of Atalanta was busy until the last minute. And the victorious goal was generally scored in the minority. So I'm in this situation clearly for the hosts.

"Napoli H (-1) for 2.01"
"Napoli Individual Total over 1.5 for 1.63"
Soccer: Main battle at the Anfield.
Everything seems to be clear in the English Premier League in terms of the struggle for the championship, however, Liverpool fans still prepare for the worst. Another reason to worry for them will be presented on Sunday. One of Merciseide’s worst enemies, Manchester United, will arrive at the Anfield. So far, it is the Red Devils who remain the only ones this season who took points off the leader - there was a 1:1 draw at the Old Trafford in the first round. Now, apparently, the away team will not be able to count on the author of the goal in the October match - Marcus Rushford as he was injured. Liverpool, on the contrary, has almost all of the leaders available, and those who have recently been injured are training in the group.
The super fight at the Anfield will end the tour, but it will begin on Saturday at the Vicarage Road, where Watford will host Tottenham Hotspur. In the next session of six matches, including games between Arsenal - Sheffield United and Manchester City - Crystal Palace will be held. The match at the St James’ Park will finish Saturday with the game Newcastle - Chelsea.
Finally, the Bundesliga resumes. Already on Friday, a recent leader, Borussia Mönchengladbach will fight in Gelsenkirchen with the local Schalke. Borussia Dortmund will play the away game with Augsburg the next day. RB Leipzig, who were the first with a two-point lead, will take on Union Berlin a little later. Bayern is also awaiting an opponent from the capital - the Munich team will come to visit Hertha on Sunday.
It is likely to be true to say that all of Spain and most of the football world are waiting for the debut of the new Barcelona head coach. The failure in the semifinals of the country\'s Super Cup has become fatal for Ernesto Valverde. He was replaced by the ex-mentor of Betis and other lesser-known clubs Quique Seten. His debut is scheduled for Sunday - a match against Granada at the Camp Nou. Barca will probably approach the game as not the leader of the standings: on Saturday having the same amount of points Real will take on Sevilla, located in the fourth spot.
In Serie A, almost all leaders, with the exception of Inter, will play at home. In the starting game of the matchday Lazio will host Sampdoria, Juventus is waiting at home for Parma on Sunday, and Atalanta will play against SPAL on Monday. Inter, however, is preparing for a trip to Lecce, balancing on the border of the relegation zone.
France decided to devote a weekend to the 1/16 finals of the Cup of the country, from which Bordeaux has already managed to get knocked out. Of the Ligue 1 clubs the draw brought together only Nantes and Lyon (the central confrontation of this stage), as well as Dijon and Nimes. Marseille will play against Granville from the fourth division, Monaco - with Saint-Pryvé Saint-Hilaire also from there, and Paris Saint-Germain will take on the leader of Ligue 2 Lorient.
And let’s not forget about the Lisbon derby in the next round of the Portuguese Primera. On Saturday, Sporting coming in fourth will take on Benfica that is leading by a big margin.
Tennis: Australia is coming.
The first Grand Slam tournament of the season begins on Monday in Melbourne - Australian Open. It will be marked not only with a new coating (hard from GreenSet), which will retain its blue color, but can possibly see the new kings and queens.
Novak Djokovic came to Melbourne to defend last year\'s title in the men\'s singles. The Serb is seeded under the second number, but he has a psychological advantage over the leader of the ATP ranking Rafael Nadal: recently, in the ATP Cup final, Nole beat Rafa in two sets, starting the year with a title, albeit a team one. Roger Federer has the third seeding number, the fourth - holds Daniil Medvedev, who had an amazing end of last season. The notable retirees are Alex de Minaur (to the disappointment of the local public), Juan Martin del Potro, Kei Nishikori and Lucas Pouille.
Naomi Osaka took the title in women’s singles last year. Now she doesn’t belong to the number of obvious favorites. Australia will crave the triumph of the first WTA racket Ashleigh Barty. The second number of seeding is Karolina Plishkova, the third - Osaka, the fourth went to Simona Halep. Alas, Bianca Andreescu, Victoria Azarenka and Andrea Petkovic could not come to Melbourne.
By the way, Barty can start the Australian Open with a fresh title in her pocket: on Saturday Ashleigh takes part in the finals of the tournament in Adelaide against Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska. In the male part of the same competition, the South African Lloyd George Harris and Russian Andrey Rublev, who won last week in Doha, will challenge for the title. Another men\'s tournament will end on Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand: there the final turned out to be purely French - Benoit Paire vs Ugo Humbert. We will complete the pre-melbourne preview with a female contest in the Australian Hobart, where the Chinese Zhang Shuai and Elena Rybakina, representing Kazakhstan, will play.
MMA: Conor Returns
The first big fight of the year will take place on January 18 in Las Vegas as part of an evening of mixed martial arts UFC 246. Probably the most hyped and scandalous representative Conor McGregor hasn’t entered the octagon since October 6, 2018 - the day of the inglorious fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov. And here is a new challenge, the result of which can either revive his career, or put an end to it.
It is believed that McGregor chose a convenient rival for himself to return - the American Donald Cerrone. Unlike Nurmagomedov, he, like McGregor, is a fighter, not a representative of wrestling not beloved by Conor. His track record at this moment ends with two technical knockouts, he is five years older than the opponent, and, in general, Cerrone is noticeably inferior in class to McGregor. Donald’s only noticeable advantage is that the fight will take place in his “native” category, whereas Connor had to gain weight.

The club from the lower division has already presented one sensation, but for two, I think, there will not be enough strength or skill, moreover, this match will be played away. Newcastle have not won for a long time, never once in this calendar year, but the rivals were very good, so Newcastle have no other options than confidently winning this match. Bets:

"Newcastle to score in both halves for 1.91"
"Newcastle to score in the 1st half for 1.43"
In theory, Newcastle should win without any problems: the rank is different. But what we should do with the fact that the favorite misses in every single match? In the Cup, any team "from below" is able to push back. Equally probable, in my opinion, both- a major Newcastle victory and almost a draw in regular time.

"Rochdale to score: yes for 1.94"
"Victory and both to score: Both to score - yes and Newcastle for 2.95"

Motivation is a great thing. Watford, who, after changing their coach, just got out of the relegation zone, have a game with direct competitor Aston Villa in two matches. At home, Watford managed to concede three goals against Tranmere! You can only imagine how confident the lower division team feel before the home game against the team from the Premier League, against which they managed to score three goals. I think that this is the case when it’s worth the risk, because the bets in favor of Watford are not interesting due to their obviousness. Bets:

"Tranmere Rovers to qualify for 3.25"
"Both to score for
1.67"
Here my preferences are on the side of the guests, as they became stronger and win pretty often. You should not expect a strong rotation of the line up from Watford: there are simply not so many players there. So if freshness and strength after Sunday will remain with them, Watford must win.

"Individual total: Watford (1.5) over for 1.63"

As with Tranmere, I would take a risk here. Perugia have already won away against Sassuolo from Serie A, so the match will certainly not be easy for Napoli. The appointment of Gattuso is a very unfortunate decision, and the results are proof of this. Of course, Napoli should win this match, it’s better not to joke with the fans of this team, and relegation from the Cup because of the team from Serie B will be a sentence for Gattuso. But since Gattuso cannot offer anything other than motivation for his teams, I think you can bet on Perugia with a handicap. Bets:

"Perugia H (+2) for 1.85"
"Total under 3.5 for 1.74"
Poor Perugia! Neapolitans, in order not to get to the very bottom of the table, need a good emotional charge. A cup match is purposely built-in for this in the middle of the week. Napoli will not fly out as a team. But Gattuso can. So I would not like to represent myself as a rival to Naples.

"Napoli will score at both halves: yes for 1.66"

I think that here it is necessary to bet on Lazio with a handicap. Cremonese played three and a half years ago against a good team from Serie A and lost 0: 3, and Lazio is a good team that plays with pleasure and which has a lot of success. Lazio have several matches ahead without leaving Rome, so there is no reason to beware and save strength. Bets:

"Lazio to score in both halves for 1.62"
"Lazio H (-2) for 2.3"
There is, of course, the imbalance of powers. Cremonese will risk only of will try to attack, but I don’t think they will, as Lazio likes to play counterattack. If the first half won’t bring any result, then the Romans will score in the second half, as they play second halves much better than firsts.

"Handicap: Lazio at 2nd half (-1) for 1.72"
"Handicap: Cremonese (2.5) for 1.57"

Perhaps this is the most difficult match. Relegation from the Cup - and the coach of Roma just right to scream blue murder. But the coach of Parma does not need to scream, he is doing well: with a very average lineup, Parma have a good season, and a misfire against Atalanta is probably the exception to the rule. Parma have two big matches in a row: right after Roma, they are playing against Juventus, so they need to use their forces rationally, but Roma will be forced to play to win, that is to say – to take risks. Bets:

"Total over 2.5 for 1.75"
"Roma to score in the 1st half for 1.81"
Parma demonstrated not so long ago the method of playing against the Romans in a Serie A match, as they have won 2-0. And the team of the Parmesans is strong. But still, I think thirst for revenge makes Roma a favorite. Parma will definitely score, but will it be enough at least for a draw? I think that is unlikely, therefore I will bet on a guest team.

"Full time: Roma for 2.02"
"Total (2.5) over for 1.75"
Soccer: Off-schedule makeup games.
The middle of this week will be relatively sparse. For the most part, it is involved in "debt closure". So, in France, meetings will be played out, rescheduled for various reasons from last year\'s tours, and in England the number of participants will be added in the 1/16 Cup final. In Italy, the 1/8 finals of the national Cup will take place.
The first quarterfinalist of the Italian Cup was Torino, who defeated Genoa in a dramatic match by penalty kick last week. Another seven lucky clubs will be known from Tuesday to Thursday. Most Serie A teams have received rivals from other residents of the elite division. We can say that the lucky are Napoli and Lazio. Not only that they will play at home, but also with representatives of the Series B. Neapolitans will host Perugia, and the Romans - Cremonese. Milan and Juventus probably also have no reason to complain about the draw. “The Red and Blacks” after an impressive victory against Cagliari away, at a weekend will meet at San Siro with SPAL - an outsider of Series A. Udinese, quite manageable for “Juve”, will come to Turin. The pairs Fiorentina - Atalanta and Parma - Roma look much more interesting and unpredictable. As is the match between Inter and Cagliari, although the Sardinians have noticeably slowed down recently, having suffered three defeats in a row.
There were already eight draws in the third round of the FA Cup. In four of them, Premier League clubs are involved, and in one confrontation they will fight against each other. Manchester United and Wolverhampton have not managed to score a single goal at Molineux, and now they will try to stand out at Old Trafford, where "The Red Devils" are, perhaps, favorites. On the same day, Wednesday, Carlisle will host Cardiff City. A few days earlier, Newcastle will try to cope with Rochdale in their field; the same will try Tottenham with Middlesbrough. Watford will have an away match against Tranmere from Merseyside. Three more couples are: Coventry - Bristol Rovers, Blackpool - Reading and Shrewsbury - Bristol City.
The table of League 1 should take on a completely balanced look on Tuesday. First, the "debt" from the 12th round will be closed by Nimes against Rennes, and from the 16th by Amiens against Reims. But most fans of French football, of course, expect a postponed match of the 15th tour: Monaco - Paris Saint-Germain. In addition to the poster, a special piquancy to this fight is given by the recent meeting of the same clubs on Sunday at Parc des Princes. The champion could not cope with the new team of the Spaniard Robert Moreno - the result of the match was a draw 3:3.
Basketball: Russian voyage of Real and Californian voyage of Orlando.
Two rounds will take place this week in the Euroleague regular season. It will be especially difficult for Real Madrid, which will play both away matches, against not the simplest opponents. First, the Spanish club, who has absolutely identical statistics (except for the number of points scored) with the leader Anadolu Ephesus, will play against CSKA on Tuesday, and Khimki, who unexpectedly lost to Zenit last week, will be waiting for it on Thursday. So, it is likely that Anadolu Ephesus will strengthen its leadership. Indeed, Istanbul, on the contrary, will play at home twice: first, Milan will come to visit them, and then ASVEL. Another club from the leading trio, Barcelona, after the misfire against Anadolu Ephesus, will play away matches with opponents who can cause problems. First of all, this definition refers to Maccabi, immediately following the Catalans in the standings. And then “Barca” have on schedule Fenerbahce, who are not losing hope of qualifying for the playoffs.
The NBA has many matches these days. Let us dwell on the most significant. Soaring on the edge of the playoff zone in the Eastern Conference Orlando will make a long voyage to California. First, Magic will play against Sacramento, and then against the more serious rivals - Lakers and Clippers and finally - against Golden State, who are failing the season. Memphis, fighting for the playoffs in the West, will play an important home game on Tuesday against Houston. Next, by the way, Rockets will host in Texas Portland, who are rivals of Memphis. Well, a special dish in the mid-weekly menu is the battle of the two best teams in the East: the leader of the regular championship Milwaukee will fight against Boston at home.

It is logical to expect an inefficient match. For the whole season, Palace scored more than one goal at home in only two games. Arsenal too has not been recently effective. Arteta won two matches in a row, but Arsenal did not make an outstanding impression, and then there is an away game. True, it is kind of derby that shows an efficient meetings from time to time. In general, everything is quite confusing, but I think that Palace is closer to victory.

"1X for 1.94"
"Both teams to score: yes for 1.69"
I often suggest wrong predictions about Arsenal. It seems like an efficient team. However, either they will not score, or they will not give the opponent a chance to score. As far as I remember, the last time it was only with Chelsea when both teams scored. To be honest, even then it happened by accident. I will assume that it is time to end this tendency. Both teams will score. Someone will score even score the second goal. However, it is unlikely that there will be more than 3 goals.

Manchester United is one of the most difficult teams to predict in the Premier League. On Thursday night, Norwich has Pukki in a list of injured players. Without him, Norwich will have few chances for a goal. On the other hand, Manchester United plays so unstable that even the team from the last place has chances for points at such an away game. Although United at the end of December scored four goals to Newcastle, there was Steve Bruce, who is not indifferent to United as a coach. In short, if anything should be picked here, then I would pick the away team victory with a handicap.

"Norwich City (2) for 1.4"
"Manchester United: 2 goals for 3.37"
Norwich is not easy right now. If they score first or hold “zero” for a long time, then it is not easy to win against them. Especially if you remember a certain "derby mood" of the confrontation. Geography has nothing to do with it. Just the first colour of the form of Manchester United was yellow-green. Norwich fans on this occasion even have several songs about "plagiarists". It seems that everything that I wrote pointing on Norwich. On the contrary, it is time for Manchester United to score. And Norwich, if they miss early, may fall. So I will note a good betting line for the hosts both for goals and handicap.

According to the schedule, Aston Villa should lose in this match, because since October they have been playing at home on schedule: victory, defeat. Aston Villa can have the EFL Cup final with City, so in this match, one can practice. However, the statistics are strongly against the hosts. City is a very uncomfortable opponent for them. In most recent personal meetings Aston Villa could not score at least one goal. I think that in this part of the season, Villa's priority is the return match against Leicester in EFL Cup. So it is important to keep in good shape.

"H1(2) for 2.03"
"Aston Villa to score: yes for 1.65"
Aston Villa resisted and could have won in a difficult cup match in Leicester. More than a dozen corners, a lot of shots - Leicester has barely ended the match in a draw. Applause to Birmingham. However, such meetings do not go in vain. Much effort has been given, the concentration will fall. In theory, City can easily win this one. Moreover, they resolved all issues with Manchester United in the first half and then just rested.

We must pick the goal of Ibrahimovic. Probably, in this match, he will be released in the starting line-up. Cagliari is higher in the standings, but at the end of the year, the team has not enough strength. However, Milan also cannot brag of good results. The team cannot score in three matches in a row, so it is time to start scoring with such forwards.

"Both teams to score: yes for 1.68"
"At least one goal to be scored in the first half: yes 1.4"
Cagliari only twice did not miss in this season. They fell apart in the second half of the match with Juve. And although Milan is no match for the game now, they must score. I think that the hosts will also show themselves. Many will surely be "looking for a goal of Zlatan". I will not do so, even though there is a chance for that. I will certainly pick the exclusion before the match. In matches between these teams, it happens often.

Well, here are your favourite bets on Juventus goals. They scored in all matches of this season, except for one in Florence. Roma does not have "concrete" defence and began the calendar year with losing home match 0:2 against Torino. Of course, two defeats in a row is a step towards the resignation of the coach, so it is hard to believe in Roma’s second defeat in a row. However, I gladly believe that the game can turn out to be funny, with yellow and even red cards.

"To Score Anytime: Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (Juventus) for 1.96"
"To Score Anytime: Paulo Bruno Dybala (Juventus) for 2.75"
Roma lost to Torino, but was torn "out of all the tendons". It just did not help. Juve easily scored 4 goals to Cagliari. I mean that this can happen with Turinians in Rome too. See for yourself how many victories this season has Juve with minimal goals. So there will be goals. I think that Juve will miss a goal or two in this match too.

"Roma (1) over for 1.62"

Soccer: Format change.
This weekend in European football can hardly be called full-fledged. Germany still has not ended the holidays, Spain took a break due to the away tournament for Supercopa de España, and only England, Italy and France remain on the forefront.
The Premier League and Ligue 1 launch their tours on Friday. In England, the start will be set in Sheffield by the local United, which is one of the main discoveries of the season, and West Ham, which famously revived the career of David Moyes. The main program of the tour is on Saturday. The day will begin with a London derby between Crystal Palace and Arsenal. The Eagles are still higher in the standings, however, the brilliant victory of the Gunners over Manchester United inspired fans with hope that under Mikel Arteta leadership the status of middle team is only a temporary phenomenon. The next big game session will contain five fights, including at least three, which are worth watching especially. In the first round, Leicester won against Southampton at St. Marys 0:9. However, of course, you should not wait for a repeat of the result at King Power Stadium. And not only because of its exclusivity, but, above all, because Southampton has become much stronger in recent months. Chelsea will host one of the most uncomfortable rivals in matches at Stamford Bridge. Burnley in the previous four seasons lost here only once, and given the instability of the Blues at home, you can expect anything from the result of this meeting. Like Norwich’s visit to Old Trafford. The Canaries close the standings with a huge lag, but in recent matches, they were very close to more than just draws. Saturday will end with the main match of the tour, which will be held in the capital. Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League won only one match out of the last four meetings but continues to stay in the top six. Liverpool is not humble to destroy everyone in its path, not missing a single goal for the past five rounds. The Spurs will have to play without their captain Harry Kane, who is retired until April.
As a result, Sunday will turn out to be light. First, Bournemouth will host Watford, and then Manchester City in Birmingham will continue their pursuit of Liverpool in a match against Aston Villa, and, first of all, for Leicester.
In League 1 on Friday, there will be one of the two main tour fights. Rennes and Marseille hold second and third places, respectively. The Breton gap is five points, however, they have a game in reserve. So, after defeating Marseille on its field, Rennes may become the shadow owner of second place. Of the Saturday meetings, we note the one that will take place in Aquitaine. Bordeaux, who was recently in the group of leaders, will host Lyon, its current neighbour in the “swamp” of standings. Well, the tour will end with the first serious test for the former head coach of the Spanish national team, Robert Moreno, who is now heading Monaco. Les Monégasques in away game will compete with Paris Saint-Germain, who has gained great shape.
In Serie A, in anticipation of a renaissance, Milan is still waiting. Another hope for a bright victory (and victory in general) will be warm at the Rossoneri on Saturday when their team will meet with Cagliari. The following two matches claim the status of centrepieces in the round. Inter, retaining the leadership in terms of goal difference, will host an unpredictable and vibrant Atalanta, while Lazio, formally retaining chances for a scudetto, is waiting for Napoli to continue to dive at Stadio Olimpico. No less interesting than the already mentioned matches promises to be a duel at the same stadium a day later. Roma, closing the first four, will meet with the champion Juventus.
In Supercopa de España on Sunday in Saudi Arabia will play two Madrid clubs. After enchanting victories over Valencia and Barcelona, respectively, Real and Atletico intend to replace their award list with another trophy. Moreover, 2019 was wasted for them. Given the personnel losses of Real, the Mattress Maker can consider themselves as the favourites of this game.
Tennis: Spaniards are eager for a new triumph.
The first ATP Cup draw is nearing completion, in which it remains to hold three match meetings - two semifinals and a final. On Saturday, four teams will get the right to take part in the direct contest for the trophy. Among them, the mistress of the courts Australia, the day before in a dramatic fight, knocked out the British. A more recent physical condition may be the key to the success of the Spaniards Rafael Nadal and Roberto Bautista Agut in matches against Alex de Minaur and Nick Kyrgios. Another semi-final combination was Serbia and Russia. Novak Djokovic and Dusan Lajovic will play for the Serbs in solo meetings, for the Russians - Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov. If the Spaniards manage to get to the finals, and there to win the title, then the Pyrenees will make a kind of double, because they finished 2019 with a victory in another team tournament in the Davis Cup.
Solo competitions are also held in parallel. In Doha, Andrei Rublev reached the finals. Sensational Frenchman Corentin Moutet will be the rival of the Russian in the fight for the trophy.
Women are nearing completion of three tournaments. In Brisbane, tops are also in shape, except for the leader of the WTA ranking Ashleigh Barty, who lost the first match. In the Saturday semi-finals will play Petra Kvitova and Madison Keys, as well as Naomi Osaka and Karolína Plíšková. In Auckland, Caroline Wozniacki confirms her desire to end the career powerfully after the Australian Open. The Dane reached the semifinals, where Jessica Pegula from the USA will become her rival. The second semi-final turned out to be purely American - Serena Williams against Amanda Anisimova.
And finally, local tennis players played poorly in Shenzhen, but the representatives of the CIS outplayed them. Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova will be the first racket of her country, regardless of the outcome of the final against Elena Rybakina from Kazakhstan.

The match will take place on a neutral field in an environment that does not really help play football. I commented on a similar match of Italian teams on the Arabian Peninsula, and sometimes there was stony silence in the stands. Valencia played in a row four matches scoring a little, Real, after three low scoring matches, won (but not by playing) 3:0 against Getafe. Since this is a game until win and in an unusual environment, I think the teams will not be opened, and the match should not turn out to be productive. Bets:

"Both to score for 1.55"
"Valencia to qualify in overtime for 18"
A convincing victory over Getafe alone does not guarantee Madrid victory over Valencia. Firstly, this is the Cup, secondly, they will play on a neutral field (even though there should be more fans of Real Madrid). Also, Valencia was never afraid of Real. So in addition to the total "over", I will allow myself to be a little on the side of the underdog. The odds almost two for (0.5) handicap, is not so bad.

"X2 for 1.21"
"Total (3) over for 1.84"

Many teams play League Cup matches with second lineups, but not these. Moreover, this is a derby, and City will have a revenge mood, since in December they played at home 1: 2. United are so unstable and unpredictable that it is completely impossible to predict how they will play. It is worth paying attention to the fact that United do not score two matches in a row. That is, with the attack, everything is not very good. Bets:

"Total under 3 for 1.73"
"X in the 1st half for 2.41"
For a long-time Manchester United did not score. The time has come. What about City? They missed even from Port Vale! Therefore, without denying that City is a favourite in this pair, I will pick the home team. This is the first match. For the time being, teams should be cautious in general. So having given it to "time", I see the whole match as inefficient.

"Manchester United (1) over for 2.09"
"Total (3) under for 1.73"

Although there are 15 places between the teams in the table, I think Villa have a chance to reach the final. The main thing is to defend in the away game - at home Villa destroyed Liverpool with 5-0, although not the first team. Leicester, whose goal is the Champions League, do not shine in the League Cup match and two rounds passed only by penalty. The main thing for Villa is to defend in defense in the away game. Bets:

"Leicester City Total under 2.5 for 1.59"
"Aston Villa to qualify for 3.7"
I see a calmly confident victory of Leicester. Villa is not bad now, the final is clear. Therefore, to those who still agree with me, I will recommend at least one of the bets to be connected with the victory of Leicester and the total "under". But how much "under"? 3.5? 4,5? Depends on the ambition. Or is it better to pick a clean sheet victory? However, for me, it is not worth it. I do not want to put all eggs in one basket. "2-3 goals" in the match also looks decent.

"Leicester City and total 4.5 under for 1.67"

This is the rare case when there is almost no intrigue. Torino are stronger, the team spent a very unsuccessful December, unlike Genoa, but after the holidays, Torino began the year with an away victory against Roma! Now, with a boldness in front of their fans, Torino should have a good and bright match. Bets:

"Torino to win and Total over 2.5 for 2.77"
"Belotti to score for 2.2"
Victories in the last round came out simultaneously. However, Torino still beat Roma even as an away team. A strong match by Belotti (by the way, the topic is to place a bet on his goal), and indeed in a very organized and competent manner. The counterattack model in this match is unlikely to be used by the Turin: no one will play against them baldly. Still, you can just pick a victory. If the betting line is decent, we see and play.

Sheffield, although they are higher in the table, do not always play confidently at home. So the victory of the hosts is not at all guaranteed. Moreover, I think that the guests will not lose. After the change of coach, West Ham began to score points, and then there was also time to prepare for a specific match. I think that Moyes has a good chance to extend his unbeaten run. Bets:

"Double chances: X2 for 1.96"
"West Ham to score: yes for 1.5"
No matter how charming Sheffield is, the betting line seems to me twisted "from the hosts". West Ham is aggressive and may also score. Sheffield spends his best matches without missing. However, lately, playing to nil has been infrequent. It makes sense to assume that the away team will not lose.

"X2 for 1.96"
"2-3 goals for 1.94"
Soccer: Cups and Super Cups.
After a busy championship and cup weekend, the middle of the week will be more relaxed. However, not for all clubs.
The first semi-final matches of the EFL Cup will take place in England. On Tuesday, Manchester United and Manchester City will at Old Trafford in the second out of four Mancunian derbies of the season. Their first clash, at Etihad, ended in an unexpected but natural victory for the Red Devils (1:2). Will Manchester United manage to defeat the Citizens for the second time? Fans are not happy with the latest results of the club. However, United has pulled yourself together more than once this season and has shown good football in matches precisely against strong opponents.
The second semi-final pair was formed by Leicester and Aston Villa. There could have been pair Leicester - Liverpool, but the Reds were forced to play in the quarterfinals against Birmingham with youth squad. So, Villa was lucky to get this far in the tournament. Note that in the first round of the Premier League, Leicester easily won in Birmingham (1:4). The first match between the Foxes and Villans will take place on Wednesday. The return semifinals will be held on January 28-29.
Having dealt with the French Cup, local clubs are now into the League Cup, where quarter-finalists will be determined from Tuesday to Wednesday. In the first of the matches of this stage, the current holder of the Strasbourg trophy will meet with Reims as the away team. In the other three pairs, the favorites are more obvious. Lyon will play with Brest at home, Lille will host Amiens. Paris Saint-Germain, which a year ago got "burned" in the quarter-finals in the match against Guingamp, will now try not to mess up the meeting with Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes.
One match will be held as part of the 1/8 finals of the Italian Cup - the rest will take place next week. The pioneers of this stage will be Torino and Genoa, who will fight on Thursday in the field of the Bulls.
The most unusual event of the week is the Supercopa de España in a new format. Chasing profit, the Spanish football authorities sold the tournament to Saudi Arabia, as the Italians had previously. However, they sold it not as one match, but as a mini-competition of three games - two semi-finals and a final. Barcelona (champion of Spain), Valencia (winner of the Copa del Rey), Atletico (vice-champion of the country) and Real (in a commercial purpose) were invited as participants. The semifinal pairs were distributed as follows. In the first match on Wednesday, will play Valencia and Real, who lost Eden Azar, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. On Thursday, Barcelona and Atletico will enter the field of the same stadium in Jeddah. The trophy itself will be contested on Sunday by the winners of the semifinals.
Basketball: The Spanish Chase after the Turks.
The second round of the Euroleague regular season starts on Thursday. According to the results of the first round, Anadolu Ephesus holds the lead in the standings. However, the Istanbul people will likely give it to Real Madrid or, perhaps, Barcelona. With the Catalans coming third with one victory behind, Anadolu Ephesus plays away. Whereas Real, having the same number of victories, will hold a home match with an outsider Zalgiris. Maccabi, who is in the fourth position, was also lucky with its opponent. The Israelis in Berlin will play with another outsider - Alba. CSKA, who was not very successful in the first round, will also be visiting Germany. Bayern will be the rival of the current Euroleague champion. We will highlight two more matches: Milan and Panathinaikos, who are in the playoff zone, will play against each other in Italy. The Russian derby will take place in the Moscow Region between Khimki, who is fighting for the first eight, and Zenit, who is taking now the last place.
In the NBA, a difficult schedule awaits Boston. One of the leaders of the Eastern Conference will first host San Antonio and then head to Philadelphia to meet with its direct competitor. Two more rivals in the East, Miami and Indiana, will play on Wednesday. On the same day, an interesting match will be held in the West. Dallas will host Denver.

A year ago, City beat the team from the lower division 7-0. Whatever is the lineup of City for this match, it is clear that they are so ahead of their opponent. Just recently, City scored three away goals in a match against a team from a division higher than Port Vale. Probably against even weaker team in their field, they should score more than three. Bets:

"Manchester City H (-4) for 1.98"
"Both halves Total over 1.5 for 1.61"
Strong rotation in the ranks of the favourite seems almost obligatory. This does not bother bookmakers. City still has to win big. It will probably be so. Handicap (+4) is still too big to pick. And even more reliable I see an outcome "5.5 under". It is unlikely that City will run to score until the very end of the match. Unless the away team themselves will fall apart...

"H2(4) for 1.74"
"Tot(5.5) U for 1.74"

“Wolves” did not have enough strength to end the tight New Year’s calendar, and the motivation probably completely gone after winning against Manchester City. Now everything is in order with motivation. Especially because it is the cup match. United left a very bad impression in the match against Arsenal, I do not think that in a few days something will improve significantly. Bets:

"Wolverhampton Wanderers to win for 2.23"
"Wolverhampton Wanderers to score in the 1st half for 1.94"
Here it is another matter. Although this round is far from the final, neither team, in theory, should qualify anyhow. Manchester did not score in two rounds. They create scoring opportunities with such a creak that I think it's time to score. The Wolves simply do not have a second line-up. Surely, they remember the undeserved defeat in the League, and they want to take revenge. In general, I am waiting for a persistent clash. With a sense of a draw. Also, I am waiting for goals from both teams.

Arsenal defeated United, and Arteta immediately felt better. Now this first coaching victory needs to be fixed with a confident playing for the cup. Leeds lead the first division, but play poorly for the cup and usually lose in January. I think there will be no sensation here, but Leeds can score. Bets:

"Arsenal to win for 1.63"
"Both to score for 1.64"
More and more combative Arsenal. They had a victory over Manchester and a great match against Chelsea. In the last one, they lost, it happens, but they played with a solid margin. Yes, there will be changes. However, their Arteta already takes part in each match. Also traditionally combative Leeds with a glorious history. The team that takes seriously such meetings in any tournaments. I think this will be an effective match. The score surely will not be 3:0, 4:0. "Leeds will score" is a good bet itself. Just it pays a little.

In April, the teams played 0-0. I think that will be closer to a draw with a small amount of goals in this match too. Real before the break, played three draws in a row, and the team's performance is not very good. In addition, a break knocked out the team of the game rhythm, moreover Real have injured players. Bets:

"Double chances: 1X for 1.93"
"Total under 2.5 for 1.83"
Getafe is an ineffective team. So it was considered at the beginning of the championship. I do not really agree with this. Rather, Real Madrid is not too enthusiastic. The total "under", for me, is more likely than the "over". However, a couple of goals from both teams should be scored. Well, I remember that I have not picked individual goals for a long time. Benzema is good now.

I would answer to the question - “should we bet on Barcelona with a handicap or not?” - without a big handicap. These derbies look different, except that Espanyol rarely score at least one goal. Barcelona won the last match this time away 4-0, but now it’s unlikely to play in an outstanding way right after the break. Bets:

"Barcelona to win for 1.42"
"Barcelona to score in both halves: yes for 2.1"
Winning a derby for Barca is a common thing. It is hardly worth assuming that it will be a victory with a big score. However, the results of 2:0 or 3:1 are literally requested. I consider the first result more likely. However, they pay excellently for “victory by 2 goals”. Why be adventurous? The risk itself is considerable. Well, you can pick a handicap. Also quite likely. Better yet, the goal of Messi. Now he is so good that the bet seems right.

"Barcelona by 2 goals for 4.29"
"To Score Anytime: Messi, Lionel (Barcelona) for 1.61"
Soccer: A mix of championships and cups.
In Germany, they rest peacefully, but the British, Italians, Spaniards and French are not up to it.
In the Apennines, they decided to extend the holidays longer. There, the Serie A tour will only begin on Sunday, and most of it will be held on Monday. The first round of 2020 will open the match with the participation of Lazio. The freshly baked owner of the Italian Super Cup will play with Brescia on its field. On the same day, Roma will host Torino, but the most interesting match is on Monday. Going head to head, Inter and Juventus will play away and at home, respectively, against very serious opponents. Nerazzurri in the final match of the tour at Sao Paolo will fight against Napoli of Gennaro Gattuso, who must have special feelings for Inter. La Vecchia Signora has a chance to host Cagliari, which is having a great season and very rarely losing away. Another event is the presentation of Zlatan Ibrahimovic “in combat conditions” strategy. Whether the Swede is ready to show himself in Serie A again or not, it will become clear before the home game of AC Milan against Sampdoria.
In Spain, the tour started on Friday, but only Sevilla played among the leaders, who failed to defeat Athletic at home. Real Madrid, which is two points behind Barcelona, will hold a small derby on Saturday at Getafe's hometown. As for the Blaugrana, they will also have an away derby against Espanyol, who is on the last place in the standings. Between these matches will fit the match Atletico with Levante in Madrid.
Concluding the championships topic, we mention the Portuguese Primeira and one of the classic local fights. On Sunday, the third Sporting in Lisbon will host Porto, which is on the second line.
The third round of the FA Cup, when the Premier League clubs join the tournament, will occupy the British weekend. Not all participants of EPL were lucky. For example, Manchester United will go to visit Wolverhampton, while Liverpool and Everton are waiting for an extraordinary Merseyside derby on Sunday. Aston Villa and Southampton will play against the recent elite inhabitants, Fulham and Huddersfield, respectively. Manchester City will meet with Port Vale, Chelsea with Nottingham Forest, and Tottenham with Middlesbrough. This round will be crowned by the Monday retro poster Arsenal - Leeds.
The French Cup is also on an early stage - 1/32 finals. The main event is the debut of ex-head coach of the Spanish national team Robert Moreno in Monaco. The Princely Club will host the Reims. In addition, let us single out the Rennes - Amiens, Lorient - Brest and Rouen - Metz matches. Champion of the country Paris Saint-Germain was chosen by the unknown club Linas-Montlery as rivals.
Tennis: The power of January.
The new season began in a whirlwind: three WTA tournaments and completely new competition - Asia-Pacific.
Let\'s start with the last one since it is in full swing. The presence of the ATP Cup in the calendar seems to connect the past year with the current one. As the Davis Cup, the new tournament is a team competition among men. Three Australian cities - Perth, Brisbane and Sydney became the arenas. 24 teams are divided into six groups. Opponents play each - two single matches and one doubles. The winners of the quartets reach the quarter-finals. The company consists of two of the best teams from those that took second place. The playoffs begin on January 9, and in the meantime, matches are in groups.
In Quartet A, the French, led by Benoît Paire and Gaël Monfils, started off with a victory over the Chileans. There are also Serbs and South Africans - Novak Djokovic in the ranks, Kevin Anderson too. In group B, the Japanese without Kei Nishikori won the Uruguayans, and the Spaniards with Rafael Nadal and Roberto Bautista-Agut beat the Georgians. In group C, the Belgians easily coped with the Moldavians, and Bulgarians in a bitter struggle prevailed over the British. Quartet D was a sensation. The US team with Taylor Fritz and John Isner lost to the Norwegians, and the Russians defeated the Italians, who took only one set in three matches. Group E includes teams from Argentina, Poland, Croatia and Austria. The Canadians took the lead in Group F after completely crushing the Greeks, the hosts of the courts, who also confidently dealt with the Germans. Moreover, loser teams had in their composition Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.
Ahead of the Australian Open, the WTA tour is based on the same Green Continent and in the “suburbs”. The latter, first of all, means New Zealand Auckland. The first seeded number here was received by Serena Williams, who at the start will fight with another veteran - Svetlana Kuznetsova. Other prominent tennis players came here: Elena Ostapenko, Petra Martić, Julia Görges and Caroline Wozniacki, who will finish her career after the Melbourne major. Directly in Australia, the tournament takes place in Brisbane. There, the composition is many times more representative, even only due to the presence in the grid of the first racket of the world Ashleigh Barty. Add here Naomi Osaka, Karolína Plíšková, Petra Kvitova, Elina Svitolina, Madison Keys and Maria Sharapova, who received a wild card. And finally, the third competition is in Chinese Shenzhen. In China, as usual, they are betting on their own. There are nine local tennis players in the grid, and maybe some of them will be able to compete for the title. Belinda Bencic and Arina Sobolenko - the first two seeded numbers - stand out from the “foreigners”.
Ice Hockey: Will the Finns keep the title?
Compared to last year, the four best youth teams in the world will change exactly half. The national team of Finland - the reigning champion, Russia - the current bronze medalist, as well as Canada and Sweden, reached the semifinals of the 2020 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic. All remaining matches of the tournament will be held in Ostrava. Semifinals will be held on Saturday. The first to go out on the ice are the hosts who defeated the Tre Kronor with the top scorer of the current championship Nils Höglander (10 = 5 + 5). Suomi and the Maple leaves will determine the second participant of the decisive match. Fights for medals will take place on Sunday: first - bronze, then - gold.

Well, New Year's English roulette is coming to an end. Predicting the previous Chelsea match, I did not dare to pick their victory, but I hope that one of you took a chance. In the end, I am just sharing my thoughts, the decision is always yours. In general, now Chelsea has come to lose. Well, if they win every other time, then in roulette it means that you need to change colour. There was a victory, now let there be a defeat. Without any argument. What are the arguments regarding roulette?

"1X for 1.82"
"Aaron Frank Mooy (Brighton & Hove Albion) for 6.21"
Chelsea’s lucky ending to the derby against Arsenal suggests that life might ask for something like income tax. Moreover, Brighton is now alright in the game. If the hosts do not get involved in an exchange of attacks, I think that they have good chances to get points. This is a match with a high probability of goals from both teams.

In the last five matches, Burnley scored just two goals, while Villa in the last three missed six. Probably, they have nothing to rely on while playing as the away team against a stronger team on the road against a stronger team. Well, since Burnley has such a low performance, why suddenly amid that they will rush forward and will score the goal after the goal?

"Full Time Result: Burnley for 1.8"
"Both teams to score: no for 2"
Villa is on fire recently. Well, Burnley is the opposite. Black and white stripes in the life of the middle teams are rarely long. In other words, it’s time for Burnley to win. At least, the hosts will attack a lot, and they will create opportunities for goals. In this case, I will be surprised if there will be a lot of goals in the match. Few times I have bet on Burnley goals in the 1st half. Both times lost the bet. Therefore, I will not pick it for a while. Even though I want to, I will not lie.

Leicester this season lost only to teams from Manchester and Liverpool. Newcastle plays well at home, but Everton still pressed Steve Bruce's team. Although Ancelotti's team was a little lucky. I do not believe that a team that is playing so well at home, can lose two matches at home in a row. Even though Leicester comes in second place, is just a usual team, and 0:4 from the real team is an additional confirmation of this. If the match was in Russia, one would say that Rodger gave up this match. However, it is England, and it is inappropriate to talk like this.

"1X for 2.36"
"Both teams to score: yes for 1.93"
Even the huge rotation in the last round did not prevent Lester from achieving a result. It is scary to play against the Foxes. Only Liverpool is not afraid of them. Vardi should appear. Therefore, playing the away team victory is a matter of betting line. I think, however, that Lester is unlikely to play to nil. Therefore, the royal odds - more than 3.5 - looks more like a venture.

It is a "dark forest". Arsenal won one match in the last 15! United, although not distinguished by brilliant results, is doing well in Boxing Day matches. The arrival of Arteta did not bring wonders. I think United has a chance to win, and Arsenal to look for another coach. However, the odds 2.64 for the host victory over a team that is not stable is tempting, but I pass. This is one hundred percent game with three results. But the goals, I hope, will be. United got into trouble, but Arsenal had no choice but to play all-in to win.

"Manchester United will score at 1st half: yes for 1.87"
"Both to score at 1st half: yes for 3.64"
I think the coach of Manchester United understands that Arsenal will try to break a monstrous series. They will start catching them on counterattacks. However, Manchester United knows how to miss a goal. Therefore, I was looking but could not find for a crazy bet “victory of one of the teams with 2 or more goals”. However, I do not doubt that one of the teams will win. It is not without reason that they offer only 1.27 for the outcome “12”. Therefore, the match will be effective. Simple and, so to speak, mutual.

Here I would take a chance and pick Liverpool with a handicap. Wolverhampton almost reduced the score at the end of the match, but as we expected, that match should not have been easy for Liverpool. However, Sheffield, I think, has missed enough for Boxing Day. Yes, the team holds on and does not lose much to anyone, but here it can crack. Liverpool must, before a short break, start the league year with a good victory.

"Liverpool will score at both halves: yes for 1.89"

Liverpool should not rush: Sheffield is well-organized and far from the easy team. However, the Reds still have to win. One should combine it with total "under". Or do you prefer to pick a handicap? It seems to me that this is a matter of taste and the question of odds. The likelihood of this to me is the same. I would like to pick both as it happens on the New Year.

Soccer: “The Gunners” or “The Red Devils”?
January 1 may be different. In England, this day is traditionally accompanied by a lot of football. 2020 will not be an exception. The 21st round of the Premier League will open immediately with two matches. In the south of the country, in Brighton, the local Albion will host Chelsea, who recently miraculously won the derby against Arsenal, but, in general, did not convince us with their game. And at Turf Moor, Burnley will compete with Aston Villa in a match that can both pull the Birmingham out of the relegation zone if they win and push them even deeper into, if the home team win.
Then everything happens on an increasing basis. In the next three parallel matches away, three clubs competing for the Champions League will play at once. Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur, flying out of winning track, will try at St. Mary’s to deal with Southampton, who, on the contrary, spend a good segment of the season. On the coast of the river Tyne, Newcastle, who are clearly losing ground, will host Leicester, who in the last round even not with a first team won against West Ham. And finally, at Vicarage Road, aiming to escape the relegation zone Watford will host Wolverhampton, who arrive without losing hope of exchanging the Europa League this season for the Champions League of the future.
Following are three more matches at one time. In London, David Moyes will make his second debut on the head of West Ham. The first came in November 2017, and then the Scot worked until the end of the contract in May 2018, which he was not offered to renew. “The Hammers” will host their direct rival in the struggle for survival, Bournemouth. Carrow Road, where Norwich recently nearly knocked out Tottenham Hotspur, will be the scene of a duel between “The Canaries” and “The Eagles” from Crystal Palace. An interesting match will be held at Etihad. Manchester City, from which the champion crown slides off more and more with each round, will compete with Everton, winning with Carlo Ancelotti two out of two attempts.
The day will close the central match of the tour. Arsenal “gave” the Chelsea derby at Emirates, but now another principal rival of “The Gunners” will come to the north of London - Manchester United. Arsenal began to play much better with Mikel Arteta, but victories do not come, and injuries continue to walk alongside the team, especially the defensive line. Manchester United recovered from the defeat against Watford and are ready to extend the series of enemy failures.
Liverpool was the luckiest. “The Reds” are the last to play - at home against Sheffield United, who, like Wolverhampton one round earlier, will come to Anfield after a difficult match against Manchester City. So, “The Reds” will have a great chance to take another step towards the title and inflict a second guest defeat of the season and in a row.
Ice Hockey: Russians, Germans, Czechs?
The group round will end at the World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic on the last day of 2019. And if almost everything is clear in group A, then drama can happen in quintet B.
The loser of group A was expected to be the national team of Kazakhstan, who, with zero points, go to matches for survival in the elite division. The Swedes, Finns, Swiss and Slovaks are in the playoffs, but who will be in the quarterfinals from which place, will be revealed following the final round. We are waiting for the matches Sweden - Slovakia and Switzerland - Finland. In parallel, the last round will be played in group B, and there may be options. Early places in the playoffs were secured by Canadians and Americans (by all four matches). First, the teams from Russia and Germany will go on the ice in Ostrava. Victory - is a guarantee of the quarter-finals. The draw in regular time can suits the Germans - if the Canadians also beat the Czechs in regular time, over which Germany has the advantage in personal meetings. But the Russians are not satisfied with the defeat in any form. If the Germans are inferior in overtime or in shootings, the Czechs will need at least a draw following the results of three periods of the match against Canada.
The NHL regular season will give out the real “snowfall” of matches on the last day of the year: 13 meetings at once. New York teams play away: Islanders in Washington and Rangers in Edmonton. Arizona, running in a high sixth place in the West, will host the leader of their Conference - St. Louis, while Colorado, next to Blues, is waiting for Winnipeg to visit. January 1 will be possible to breathe easily: there is only one match - Dallas against Nashville. And on Thursday, we must once again gain a deep breath - still 12 matches. In particular, Vegas will play against Philadelphia, Islanders - against representatives of the neighboring state from New Jersey, and most of all attention will be paid to the battle of Western leaders - Colorado against St. Louis on ice of Avalanche.

I think this game is closer to a draw. Newcastle after 1:4 against United will obviously try to win their last game of the calendar year, especially since Newcastle rarely loses at home and gets most of their points. It’s the first game of Ancelotti in charge away from home. Everton is not okay in general, otherwise they wouldn’t need to change the coach. Therefore I don’t see any other option for the away team but to play from defence. Newcastle almost doesn’t have home games with a lot of goals. Considering the strategy which will most likely be chosen by Everton, I think there won’t be many goals.

«Total goal: Tot(2.5) U for 1.67»
«First half result: Draw at 1st half for 2.06»
Again, waiting in the betting line of many corners. As for the result, here I am absolutely not against anyone's draw. But I’ll take it not by the match, but by the first half. Since both teams often get tired after a half-time. Well, the goal of Everton (at least) I will keep in mind. In the game in recent weeks, it looks more interesting. Although (again) this is no guarantee.

This will be the first game of Arteta at home. But this doesn’t mean anything. Chelsea games are a gamble.The team wins every other game. This is the game to win. You can’t ignore that Lampard can prepare the team for such important games. So it’s very risky to bet on the result. And it’s very important for Arteta not to lose the first game at home. The teams might not risk it.

Well, guys, I don’t know…! They either deconstruct Mourinho (and in his own style), then they lose against Southampton at home. This is I tell about Chelsea. Arsenal get used to the new coach (and vice versa). The defense of both is by no means very strong. Neither one team in the last round scored in the first half (and Arsenal did not score in the round before). So I risk betting on “both to score” before the half-time.

Liverpool is a machine that moves towards the championship. The emotional uplift of the team is so great that it seems like the players never get exhausted. Wolves play well lately and rarely lose. But in the games against Liverpool The Reds are stronger in some way and usually win by 1-2 goals. It’s obvious that something like this will happen again, especially since this is the last home game of such an amazing year and they simply can’t give away points to an opponent. On the other hand, even being in such phenomenal form Liverpool can’t win all the games 4:0.

«Total goal: Tot(3.5) U for 1.55»
«Teams to score: Both teams to score: no for 1.77»
Liverpool's wonderful victory in Leicester drives to bet on a minus handicap, especially at Anfield ... However, I will restrain: victory - most likely, handicap - no. You can’t bet on a 4-0. And the “Wolves” remain quite a quality and combat team. The leader will have to score at least a couple in order to win.

Sheffield is holding it together. If the first half of the season is so successful then why would they fail in the last game of the year? Although City could win almost against any team with a handicap. Especially since Aguero will play with extra motivation, because he had to come off at the beginning of the game after the goalkeeper got sent off. But I think Sheffield won’t crumble.

«Handicap result: H2(2) for 1.77»
«To win to nil: To win to nil: Manchester City: no for 1.68»
Sheffield score a little and concede a little. Clearly, this is not a reason to equate them with City. But City themselves, it happens, start to play well only when they are pressed. I think that the option is possible: Sheffield wait the first half, and then mastery wins. You can compare the effectiveness of halves or bet on City victory in the second half.

Soccer: Saying goodbye to 2019.
The 20th round of English Premier League will take place on Saturday and Sunday, right from the end of the 19th round. The beginning was set by the “southern derby” between Brighton and Bournemouth, which ended with the victory of the Seagulls, but, of course, it will not be the main one in the weekend.
Three meetings will continue on Saturday\'s program. Newcastle after the defeat at Old Trafford at home will play against Carlo Ancelotti Everton. The Toffees successfully started under the leadership of a famous Italian by winning back against Burnley in the last minutes of the match. Now the second test is perhaps more complicated.
Watford and Aston Villa at Vicarage Road, where the Hornets crushed Manchester United a week earlier, will play a classic six-point match. Watford climbed from the last place to the penultimate. They are now 5 points behind Birmingham, who are one place above. So, the importance of this match for the struggle for survival is difficult to overestimate.
And at St. Marys Southampton and Crystal Palace will play. If the Londoners can feel relatively calm, the Saints are still quite close to the relegation zone.
In the next two matches, the top of the standings will play as the away teams. Leicester, having suffered two sensible defeats in a few days from Manchester City and Liverpool, but retaining second place, will play against West Ham in London, which will probably gain a new head coach before the New Year. After losing to Crystal Palace, the Hammers leadership put an end to the future of Manuel Pellegrini, and regardless of the outcome of the match with Leicester, the team should be led by David Moyes.
In parallel, Tottenham Hotspur at Carrow Road will pass the exam by the agonizing Norwich, who have already rolled to the last place with minimal chances to stay in the Premier League.
Saturday will end at Turf Moor. Manchester United, after crushing Newcastle, will try to correct its not the best away game statistics in a duel with Burnley. The Clarets are now in the middle of the standings, relatively close to Manchester United, but they have never managed to cope with the Mancunians at home in Premier League. In turn, the victory of Ole Gunnar Solskjær team can send them straight to the top 6.
Sunday will open with the central, in terms of the hype, duel. The London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea at Emirates will not be the best time for both clubs. The Gunners even under the leadership of Mikel Arteta are left without victories, and the Blues, having dealt with Tottenham, again demonstrated their instability, losing the second home match in a row. However, the visiting team of Frank Lampard this season is even more successful.
As for the tournament position, from this point of view, the main thing is the duel between Liverpool and Wolverhampton at Anfield. The Wolves lately did a favour to the Reds after beating Manchester City and bringing the leader\'s advantage to the absolute. Will they be able to show their teeth on the field of the future champion, who will surely present the cup to the stands of the best club in the world? Liverpool has not lost a single point this season at their stadium.
The last match of the last round of the Premier League in 2019 will be a meeting of Manchester City and Sheffield United at Etihad. Josep Guardiola seems to have accepted the loss of the title, but this does not mean that the Citizens will stop playing. True, they will have a difficult test: the Blades pleasantly surprise after returning from the championship, and for now, playing away they have not yielded to anyone.
The next, 21st round of the Premier League, will take place already in 2020 - on Wednesday and Thursday.
Ice Hockey: Classic of the youth.
At the Youth World Championships in the Czech Republic, all teams had one match, and some two, and the first outsider was already clear. The Kazakhstan team lost both meetings in Group A, which will most likely end up in the consolation round, where they will fight for the right to remain in the elite division for next year. However, Kazakhstanis will have another chance to improve the situation. True, for this you need all-nothing - beat the Finns on Sunday, the current titleholders. Well, or the Swedes on Monday, provided that they no longer score points. Meanwhile, in group A, national teams of Switzerland and Slovakia are not suffering from the loss of points and will meet each other also on Monday.
On Saturday, Quintet B will host one of the classic hockey matches - including at the youth level: Russia - Canada. At the start of the tournament, the Russians lost 3:4 to the owners of the ice, while Canadians defeated their American neighbours 6:4. For the Maple leaves, a new victory will mean an early exit to the playoffs. There is no doubt in this. However, the team of Valery Bragin, in case of defeat, will significantly complicate their life.
Tennis: Hawaii Vacations.
A great place for seeing off 2019 and preparing for the new season was chosen by the participants of the exhibition tournament taking place these days in the Hawaiian Islands. The organizers of the Hawaii Open managed to get Taylor Fritz with Sam Querrey for the men\'s grid and Angelique Kerber with Danielle Collins for the women\'s. True, not all the favourites managed to get to the finals of the mini-tournaments (in fact, they started from the semifinal stage). So, Fritz lost to the 367th racket of the world to Brandon Nakashima from the USA. And now the 18-year-old will play with Querrey in the decisive match. However, the female part of the competition will end with the originally expected final of Kerber - Collins.

Making predictions for the Premier League became a hopeless thing. How can Tottenham possibly lose to Chelsea without even scoring? Just how? So I think anything can happen in the offered games, including this one. Can Tottenham lose at home twice in a row? I’m afraid to say no. Brighton hasn’t lost by too many goals away to top clubs (United and Liverpool) and managed to score. Thus, you should consider those facts as the base of your prediction, because it hasn’t been too long since and Tottenham is not Liverpool.

"Full time result: 1 for 1.53"
"Teams to score: Brighton & Hove Albion to score: yes for 1.48"
The defeat from Chelsea hurt Mourinho and his players. It hurt a lot. And to make things worse, Son got sent off. So the home team will have to rebuild their game. Brighton is not a team that you can scare easily. But at first they will definitely be under a lot of pressure: if Tottenham doesn’t score before the halftime they will be risking to get stuck and will have to risk it. So closer to the game start I would recommend considering Kane’s goal. But while it isn’t offered I will agree to bet on lower odds (why not?) and will remind you that Brighton doesn’t lose by too many goals.

The teams with weaker lineups have a more difficult time to play games during Boxing day, but now both teams had 5 days to prepare for this game. Both teams aren’t good, so I can’t pick a favorite. Villa lost to their neighbor in the table Southampton 1:3 just recently, so the home pitch doesn’t guarantee you anything in this case, besides Norwich drew away to Leicester. But you can definitely pay attention to the fact that in games like this both teams usually score.

"Teams to score: Both teams to score: yes for 1.45"
"Alternative total goals: Total (2.5) over for 1.49"
Both teams lost at home in the last round. And while Norwich was fighting and was ahead at some point, Villa was destroyed the same way as that Liverpool side in the League Cup. So both teams will be very motivated. Betting on either of the teams to win is a guessing game. Let’s find some logic in the betting line, then.

I think Everton. The first game of Ancelotti. His Napoli played brilliant football, the issue was with the owner. It’s obvious that a new coach will want to impress the public. Burnley is higher in the table, but they are quite strange: they conceded 9 from Tottenham and City and then kept a clean sheet in their two next games, although against much weaker teams. I think that since Everton couldn’t score against Arsenal, this is the game to see their goals - surely Everton can’t be goalless twice in a row at home and Burnley keeping a clean sheet for the third time in a row.

"Total goals: Tot(2.5) O for 1.9"
"Full time result: 1 for 1.67"
The game will be fast and full of challenges. Usually there are many corners and yellow cards in such games. Also (I can’t explain it, but somehow it’s a fact) in half of such games (precisely away from home) Burnley scores before the half time. Everton, will obviously push them. Plus, this is the first game with Ancelotti in charge. Therefore I would understand all the bets on The Toffees. But I’m not backing out from my previous prediction - Burnley’s goal.

"Second half result: Everton at 2nd half for 2.05"

Both teams are good this season. Leicester almost managed against City and if in some moments they were luckier and in others the referee wouldn't be so decisive in favor of the home team then Leicester could get some points. As has been said before, this is a very special game for Rodgers. Therefore I wouldn’t bet on a result here: this is a game with 3 results. And I wouldn’t expect many goals here. I would play for a draw and reserve the strength after this long flight and this exhausting participation in the Club World Cup if I were Liverpool, because they have 3 home games in a row.

"Alternative total goals: Total (3.5) under for 1.49"
"Teams to score: Both teams to score: yes for 1.56"

Leicester lost to City in the last round. But they were fighting as much as they could. Also, City was playing on Saturday and apart from the game with another blue team (Chelsea) Guardiola’s players never played like that this season. Liverpool had a full 90 minutes against Monterrey and 120 against Flamengo (a very difficult game) and they will be very exhausted. I will allow myself here to bet on a home team, even though it’s a risk.

"Number of goals in match: 2-3 goals for 2.04"
"Draw no bet: Leicester City (0) for 2.38"

Same as Liverpool, City will have 3 home games in a row. It’s logical to assume that City will not go all in, which will be smart in such a saturated schedule. Wolves play well at home and rarely lose, although they lost to unpredictable Tottenham. It’s unlikely that in a short period of time they will lose two home games. I think the game is closer to a draw.

"Handicap result: H1(1.5) for 1.72"
"Teams to score: Wolverhampton Wanderers to score: yes for 1.59"
Wolves could be the most stubborn and skillful team in the Premier League. This season (including Europa league) as well as last season they often won after conceding first. Every other game and sometimes more often they have at least 10 corners. Brave team, all in all. City used so much of their fuel against Leicester, so I doubt that this can be repeated every game just like that. City hasn’t had two amazing games in a row this season. They are still a favorite, but it will be difficult.
