Ancelotti aiming for 4th Champions League

Since arriving at Bayern Munich as the head coach of the German club, Carlo Ancelotti has taken them to a Bundesliga title and a DFL-Supercup which is pretty impressive for a manager who was going through his debut season at the helm of a club – there are plenty of managers who would struggle to match that, even at the perennial Bundesliga winners. It’s a similar story to Jose Mourinho, who won the League Cup and the Europa League in his first season for the Red Devils, with both the experienced coaches now setting their sights firmly on contending for the Champions League title come May 2018.

Carlo Ancelotti is not satisfied with the pieces of silverware that he has already won with Bayern Munich and the Italian manager is aiming to add his 4th UEFA Champions League title after already having won it twice with AC Milan and once with his former club Real Madrid. Read more »

New Zealand vs Portugal Soccer Betting Tips

New Zealand will look to play for price when they take on European heavyweights Portugal in their third and final game of the group.

The All Whites lost out to Mexico by a 2-1 scoreline in the previous outing. Chris Wood opened the scoring for the All Whites in the first-half before Raul Jiminez levelled things up in order to allow Oribe Peralta to net the winner. Meanwhile, Portugal earned a solid 1-0 victory over hosts Russia with Cristiano Ronaldo bagging the only goal in the game in the ninth minute.

When there isn’t any Football…

It would be wrong to say that this is a barren summer in terms of sport. We’ve had the ICC Champions trophy in cricket while the British and Irish Lions Rugby team are touring New Zealand. And, Wimbledon is just around the corner but, if the mention of that name conjures up images of Plough Lane rather than the tennis courts of SW17, then you really are missing the football season.

So, if you’re really stuck for something to bet on, have you ever considered Foreign Exchange Trading?

Even if you’ve never so much as dabbled in the forex markets, the chances are that you’re at least fairly well acquainted with them. That’s because virtually every single news bulletin you ever hear will end with a brief recap of how the pound has fared today against the euro and the dollar. If you’re planning on holidaying abroad this year, in particular, then you can’t fail to have noticed the manner in which the pound has plummeted in value since the Brexit referendum of 12 months ago.

LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo Betting Tips

Los Angeles Galaxy will entertain Houston Dynamo in the Major League Soccer this Sunday.

The much famed club are currently placed eighth in the Western Conference, although they have two games in hand over Houston, who are third in the same standings. Galaxy have won four of their last five games across all competitions, and their 3-0 win over Orange City in the US Open Cup will provide them the added boost ahead of the league encounter. Former Barcelona graduate Giovanni dos Santos is likely to be relied upon for the goalscoring duties after having netted six times in 12 outings this season.

On the other hand, Houston have had a rather patch form of late with just two wins in their last five games. The club did not have an easy path beyond the 4th round of the US Open Cup on Tuesday as they had to scrap a 3-2 win over North Carolina in extra time. Erick Torres has simply shone in the Houston shirt this season with 12 goals and he could find himself fairly unlucky to miss out on the Mexican squad for the Gold Cup this summer. Read more »
