Az Alkmaar willl make another attempt to fight for the second place, which gives the right to qualify for Champions League groups in the next season and as we know this is the most titled and commercial tournament.

The ambitions here for all teams to enter the Champions League Groups have always been large and every team want to placed at first or second place in Eredivisie. Here the chances of Az Alkmaar are small to replace Ajax, but still there is an opportunity, because there is a direct collision on 29/04/2018. AZ Alkmaar guest on Amsterdam Arena and it is up to this match to decide whether the fight remains, as the difference is now 5 points between the two leading teams.

With Alkmaar’s victory, they will hope for Ajax’s error when they visit Excelsior. Although the points of precedence are pretty good, considering the remaining 2 rounds, chances are still there and we expect a lot of battle and fight in this game.

Let’s look at the ranking and the leading teams:

PSV

PSV has not left much opportunity for the other teams this year. They started very well at Eredivisie and over time they made a few losses, but this did not affect their leadership and they are now worth 81 points at general standing, 8 more than the second Ajax. PSV is a sure-footed qualified in the Champions League next season and can also say they are champions for the season 2017/2018 in Netherland.

Ajax

The Ajax team started the championship well, but lost valuable points against weaker competitors and failed to fight for the title this season. Ajax has shown good games and is currently second in the Eredivisie. Next round in championship, Ajax has an important match against the team of the AZ Alkmaar, who is also struggling to enter the Champions League. Here Ajax can try to beat or finish a draw in order to be calm for his second place and not wait for the last round where will play games with Excelsior’s team. Ajax need at least a point with Alkmaar to be calm until the end of the Eredivisie.

Az Alkmaar

This team has a few chances in the Champions League, two rounds before the end of the season 2017-2018. The team tried to become a champion, but PSV firmly occupied the first place. Now the fight is to enter the Champions League, where he has to take the other 2 games and add 6 points to his asset and at the same time rely on Ajax to lose points and matchups. A difficult task, but not impossible. Even if he stays in 3rd position, AZ Alkmaar will play in the League of Europe teams, which is still an achievement and satisfaction from the entire season 2017-2018.

Feyenoord

The Feyenoord’s team made a nice series of six consecutive wins in the last rounds, boosting their game, but losing valuable points against Venlo, Vitesse, Nak Breda and this led to difficulties entering Top 3 of Netherlands championships. Feyenoord has two more games to play, but despite the results in them, the team remains in fourth place, having no way to overtake Alkmaar and at the same time Utrecht, cannot reach them.

Will Alkmaar be able to beat Ajax as a guest and shorten the gap in the fight for the Champions League qualifications, we are going to understand on 29/04/2018 the Amsterdam

Manchester United and Manchester City in a battle for the top

This year we are watching both Manchester grands, who are fighting for the top, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Despite the 8 points advantage of City, the leader, which for the past 14 rounds is a big advantage in the points, we know that the title fight in England is leading to the last game and nothing is decided yet. On December 2017 will be the derby between these two class teams. Manchester United hosts this match and it is extremely important in the fight for the title.

In winning, the odds of the Red Devils will increase significantly, and at a loss the difference will be 11 points, which really tilts the balance in favor of Man City in the remaining matches until the end of the Premiership.  It is also possible to have an equal result, which suits to a certain extent City, but not Manchester United. “The Red Devils” think they will try to play the match at 100% of theitr power and give all from themselves for these valuable 3 points and against their opponent for the title.

The team has class-top players, and let’s not forget the experience of coach Jose Mourinho, who has been one of the best in the world for the past 10 years. Manchester United has sold Wayne Rooney to Everton but has enough good strikers, including Lukasko and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who have returned to the team and this will give more ambition and incentive to the club’s players.  Lukako is the top Premier League striker and those wishing to bet can make it at odds of 2.45 / goal anytime – Premier League / at sport.netbet.co.uk

Manchester United won valuable points against Everton, Leicester and Tottenham, who are in the top 10 of the Premiership, but lost to Chelsea and Liverpool, the 4th in the standings.

City really impresses with its point asset and not just that, team is 6/1/0 at home, and as a guest there are only wins. The goal difference is an impressive 44-9 or 35+ goals so far. It’s going to be hard game for Man Utd. to fight at this meeting, but it’s all possible, so we’re looking forward to the match on December 10 at 6:30 pm, which will give us more insight into Manchester United’s chances of winning the Premiership title for this season.

Will we see a game between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder?

All admirers and boxing fans have probably watched the recent encounters of some of the most famous fighters at the moment – Anthony Joshua and Deotnay Wilder.

What did Joshua do with Takam?

Surprisingly for many Joshua fans, he was not quite adequate in this match. He started well, but the opponent stood very vigorously on the pitch, very moving, and although the hits were strong, Takam was in condition and in a good shape. This was not expected from Joshua, and in the course of the rounds, his form fell and began to play more passively in the ring. Separately, he also suffered some serious blows, but not so serious as to be shot down. One of the reasons for this is his preparation for months for fight with Kubrat Pulev and only 15 days of preparation for the match with Takam. Either way, Joshua won the match, though in the tenth round. Takim, however, opposed and played a very good game according to the experts and presented himself worthy.

A long-standing match for Wilder has been played, but Joshua, who, despite his strong match against Vladimir Klitschko, has shown that he has great potential in this sport, not to be allowed, but to train permanently and to prepare for a future meeting with Wilder.

What can we say about Diontay Wilder?

A very aggressive boxer that the audience eagerly awaits in every game. He makes spectacles, play very dynamic and movable in the ring. Impressive is his boxing history so far. 39-0, out of these 39 wins, only one is win by points and he very much regrets that he has failed to make 39 of 39 knockout. Joshua is 28 years old, and Dionysus is 32, giving a slight advantage to the Englishman. Diontay is slightly higher than Joshua’s 2.01 centimeter at his opponent’s 1.98. In pounds, the differences are already noticeable. There the advantage is for Joshua and according to boxing specialists, this tilts the balance in favor of Joshua 115 per 100 kg. Wilder will rely on more match dynamics, more movement and higher growth. Joshua has an advantage in weight and technique and defense.

Everyone asks if it really is so good. Somebody even criticizes him for choosing easy opponents, but here with Stiverne things were not like they think. Stiverne was the WRC champion in 2014 and 2015, and in the first round he was knocked out. Diontay definitely rehearses the opponent, but one is visible, at least at first glance. Diontay has no good defense, has a very good push, but the defense, according to most specialists is not at a very good level, that Joshua can surprise him here.

What will happen in the battle between the two athletes and when the match between them will not be known yet, but we definitely think that there will be a match because the fans want it and they want it, and not forget that the revenues from such match would be great.

Hidden images in Football Logos Quiz!

While everyone loves a good logo, there’s just no arguing that some logos are more memorable than others. One of the best ways people have found to help make their brand a little more memorable is to sneak a little surprise in there for the more observant viewer who gets an Easter egg whenever they see the branding. Never is this more prevalent than with sports teams, the NFL has plenty of teams with distinctive logos that bear hidden messages to help sneak some subtle branding across to the viewer. Things like the Atlanta Falcon where they stretch the falcon itself into an F to drive home the teams name. We don’t see quite as much of this in European Football, but working with Paddy Power Betting, we’ve managed to get enough together for a short quiz where hidden symbolism and meaning are rife- how many can you spot?

Manchester City and Manchester United – top teams at the start of the Premiership

The two big Manchester Grands are at the top two in the Premiership. This is something that did not happen soon. Both teams are fighting for the first place, after only 8 rounds of the Premier League in England. They make a very good start of championship and at the moment City is the leader with 22-points, followed closely by Manchester United with 20 points. Most experts  in football are of the opinion that the “Special”, which is the coach of the “Reds”, namely Jose Mourinho, has a great merit. After the specialist came at Old Traford, the team regained their championship style of play and we now see the real face of Manchester United. What will happen until the end of the championship is difficult to say, but the start is amazing for both teams.

Manchester City headed by Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sané, Sergio Agüero, are well placed in the front row, and the presence of class defenders further hinders their opponents at the moment. Coach Pep Guardiola has decided to win the title this year with one of the most expensive selections in the Premiership so far.

Their eternal rival from Manchester has already gained the necessary confidence and after 6 convincing wins, 2 draws and 0 losses headed to the top. Reds rely mainly on Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini. Lukaku is a Manchester United top scorer with 10 goals scored and one goal assists in season 2017/2018.Last year champion Chelsea is at 5th position, followed by Arsenal, Burnley and Liverpool. Watford is a big surprise with their 4th place, but we are not sure, if they has a potential to finished in top teams in final standing.

Manchester derby will be on December 09, 2017, and fans of sports betting will not only be able to watch this match, but also bet on it. Currently, favorite in most bookmaking houses to win the Cup of Premiership  is Manchester City, with odds of 2/5 and for their Manchester United are offering odds 4/1, which is very attractive.

Third, but also with a chance for the title is Tottenham’s team with 17 points, which keeps most of its players, after transfer Summer market, including one of the best strikers in the world. The 24-year-old striker Harry Cane has scored 29 goals last season and is once again a leading figure for Tottenham Hotspur.

Still at the start of the Premiership, but after eight fights, the two big Manchester City and Manchester United leaders are clearly distinguishable, and they are also excellent in the Champions League where they are leaders of moment in their groups.

Sports you didn’t realise you could bet on

While most people know you can place a wager on a lot of things, such as the U.S presidency for instance, gambling has always focused more on sports. Whether you’re talking to a bookmaker or looking to do some betting online, it’s likely you’ll focus on the more popular things like football, rugby, or maybe some horse racing.

Equestrian
You might be thinking of horseracing here but equestrian events are different. Rather than racing the horse at speed about a track, it’s about riding it with dressage and perfectly composed jumps. It’s more likea dog show, like Crufts, than the pitched atmosphere of the Grand National. You can still put money down if you’ve got a good feeling about certain horse and rider pairs, though the betting is a little less frantic and doesn’t tend to use the Tote.

Fishing
On the list of unconventional sports you can bet on, fishing is likely to be at the top of most people’s lists. Yes, even a relaxing afternoon at the lake can be bet on. It is mostly the big events like Fish-o-Mania but you can bet on all sorts of things like the weight of the winning fish, who the winning angler will be and more!

Hurling
Originating in Ireland, hurling has a strong following worldwide for people interested in more unique games, it’s seen by some as being one of the most technically challenging games out there. With a ball that has to be bouncing on the end of a stick and a full-length pitch, hurling is fun to play!

Kabbadi
Somewhat more obscure, kabbadi is an Indian game that you may not have heard of. It’s essentially a game of tag with teams of five and a full contact method of tag-backs. Each team send a single player in to ‘tag’ an opponent without being floored. It’s a little hard to explain, but kabaddi is also something you can bet on, though as with all the sports we’ve mentioned, you might want to make sure you know what’s what before putting some money down.

Professional Wrestling
While billing itself as ‘sports entertainment’ rather than a full-on sport, you can indeed bet on pro wrestling! Of course, the result of a match is decided long in advance so it’s not really in the hands of fate, but you can still be surprised by an outcome and have a little fun putting your money where your mouth is by backing your favourite stars.

Sumo
The Japanese heavyweight national sport is also something you can bet on, similar to boxing and MMA. With several major competitions every year and a strong stable of sumo wrestlers, if you know a bit about the sport it can be a great choice for a more esoteric one to bet on!

Surfing
Yep, you can even bet on competitive surfing. Though it’ll mostly be major events like the Rip Curl Pro and the Billabong Pipeline Masters that open the books, once a competition starts you can start putting money on who’s going to perform best and win the whole thing!
