Almost all main defense line sidelined, out are De Mey, Gamboa, Pejcic, Van De Wiel, Wiegel, Wuytens, Vukotic, Sula. From the other hand Mouscron looks to play good games, last won with top table Genk 2:0, previously lost with Waregem 1:0, but after really good completion.
Both teams will met 2nd time within a week. In previous cup game after 90’ there was a draw, into Today’s match guests shouldn’t have the same kind of luck. Arsenal treats more seriously league completions than cups. Also Newcastle previous game lost with red lantern – Sheffield Utd, playing second half in 10 players after red card for Fraser. Today probably we also won’t see Jamal Lewis and Federico Fernandez.
Both teams into good shape, Sheffield last 2 games without lost, Tottenham – 6 matches. From the one side Gareth Bale and Steven Bergwijn are coming back to guest team what will be huge boost. From the Sheffield side coach mentioned on the pre-match conference that 7 players are missing without giving all names. But won’t play: Enda Stevens, Oli McBurnie, George Baldock, Jack Robinson
To Host team will come back Jamie Vardy and James Maddison what is huge boost offensive line. Also will be back after long-term injures Cengiz Under and Ricardo. Leicester is really solid, without lost from 5 games. Southampton from the other hand into last won game with Liverpool lost whole his power and strength which can be visible in Today’s meeting. After that coach lost couples of important players: Djenepo, Ings – goal scorer with Liverpool, Obafemi, Redmond, Tella, Vestergaard J.
Livingston has unique chance to win with Celtic today. They are in really good form, list of won games is quite long. From the other hand there is a hospital into Celtic team, missing players are Abd Elhamed, Ajer, Ajeti Al, Bain, Barkas, Brown, Christie, Edouard, Elyounoussi, Forrest, Griffiths, Jullien, Klimala, Ntcham. We could see in previous Celtic games missing team spirit, trainer first choice is sending healthy players to play.
Cardiff cannot find right form and shape, including cups and league. As a confirmation of this form is lost with last team into league – Wycombe 2:1. Into hosts squad we also won’t see the best striker – Moor additionally Morrison, Osei-Tutu, Tomlin, Vassell are out . From the opposite side Norwich is in good form, won in cups with Coventry and league with Barnsley.
Arminia is looking better, last game won with Herta 1:0. Despite of missing 2 players (Niemann, Voglsammer), they should overcome and as a minimum will not lose with weakened Hoffenheim. Hosts will play without couple of important players: Akpoguma, Baumgartner, Bicakcic, Geiger, Grillitsch, Hubner, Kaderabek, Skov, Stafylidis. Additionally into last 2 matches they looked really poor – lost with Schelke 4:0 and Frierburg 1:3.
Both teams are going in opposite direction, Montpellier without win from 5 matches, in poor shape, last draw with weak Nantes 1:1. Into Today’s game cannot count on Mavididi, Savanier. From the other side Nicko Kovac’s high-flying team, easy won with Angers 3:0, previously 2:5 won with Lorient, without any weaknesses into this game. Additional – empty stadium will not help host team.
Bournemouth can jump on 2nd table position in case of winning. They have couple of arguments for that: last 2 won matches – into Cup and won with Stoke. Millwall looks to be in different shape, despite of cup won, into league they lost with Coventry 1:2 in a bad style, also lost defender Wallace. Into Today’s game we cannot probably see also Connor Mahoney and Billy Mitchell.
