MATCH ANALYSIS;

Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Apr 2 saw them lose ground on the Premier League (PL) top four. It marked what was (as of Apr 9) their third game in succession to yield that scoreline and see one team score consecutive match goals.

United’s PL home form alone offers no respite in that regard either, with just one of their last nine league matches here seeing them keep a clean sheet. In each of the last three home PL games where the ‘Red Devils’ have conceded, their opponent on the day has scored in the 75th minute or later.

The home fans in attendance will be pleased to note that West Ham’s last four matches (W1, L3) have seen them concede 2+ goals, with each seeing them trail by a two-goal margin at one point, and all the defeats ending 2-0. All four games also saw West Ham lose the first half.

Worse yet, after a run of three successive PL away wins in December, West Ham have now taken just a single point from the last 21 available on the road (D1, L6). All of the six defeats in that sequence have yielded a blank for West Ham.

Players to watch: Respectively, each of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku’s last three home league goals for United have arrived in the first and second half.

With a brace at Southampton (Dec 27), Felipe Anderson remains the last West Ham man to score in an away league match from open play.

Stat attack: Manchester United last suffered a league double of defeats against West Ham back in 2006/07.
West Ham’s last two away PL games have seen them lose the first half 1-0.

Overall, five of West Ham’s last seven matches have seen them concede first.

Roma vs Virtus Entella Sportpesa tips
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Monday, 14th January 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

The She-Wolf has got one of the easiest fixtures in the Round of 16 of Coppa Italia. Along with the home advantage, Roma is paired with a team from Serie C, the third tier of football competition in Italy.

Gaffer Eusebio Di Francesco will probably opt to rest some of his key players for this tie. Entella is really punching above their weight in this fixture. The team had gone bankrupt in 2001 after spending almost nine decades in Italian football.

Roma just recorded an away win over Parma on the road, and is really high in confidence for this domestic fixture. The Diavoli neri too registered an away win, but there’s an asterisk present here, that the match was conducted as part of Serie C.

The difference in stature between the two teams is to such an extent that this is the first match between these two sides.

Roma vs Virtus Entella Sporpesa Prediction

If nothing out of the blue happens, La Magica would win this match comprehensively and with comfortable ease. On top of the home advantage, the team has years of experience in the top-most tier of Italian football, as well as world football.

To exhibit the difference in quality, consider that the Giallorossi played in the semifinal of the most prestigious club tournament in Europe, while the Black Devils could not shake off the shackles of the third tier from their feet.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have scored two or more goals in ten of their last 12 home-ties. These stretch of matches included Champions League games as well as Serie A fixtures.

The last time Roberto Boscaglia’s men faced a top division team, they conceded three goals. Consider that the team was Genoa, a relegation-battler in the Serie A. We can only imagine how this fixture would turn out, against a side that battles for European spots in the league table.

Against such a comparatively weaker time like that of Virtus, the Magic One will easily score in as well as win, both halves.

Leicester vs Cardiff Prediction

Leicester vs Cardiff Prediction

Following a 1-0 win at Chelsea, Leicester City claimed yet another major scalp in the 2018/2019 Premier League season, with the team beating star-studded Manchester City at their King Power Stadium. The Foxes are brimming with confidence ahead of their last game of the year and we predict that they are going to go all guns blazing at Cardiff City this weekend.

A man to watch in the home team will be, as always, Jamie Vardy, who provided an assist for Mark Albrighton in the 2-1 win over Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Bluebirds, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a heavy 5-1 loss to Manchester United, with the team sharing the spoils with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Welsh outfit aim to move away from the danger zone, but seeing that Leicester City have found their best form of late, we believe that the newcomers are going to return home empty-handed.
