Spanish La Liga 2012 Preview: Levante vs Espanyol Predictions

Levante looks to continue their dominance in their next match against Espanyol.

Levante Preview

Levante makes an example out of Motherwell defeats them 2-0. Levante, who finished sixth in La Liga last season after briefly topping the table in late October, pushed Motherwell back in the first half but they were gifted a 42nd-minute opener as Juanlu ran from deep to net as the home defence waited for an offside flag.

Motherwell improved significantly and Henrik Ojamaa had two good chances but the visitors carved out a second for substitute Nabil El Zhar in the 62nd minute and killed the game off before Hutchinson was dismissed for a last-man challenge.

Levante were making their European debut without Senegal midfielder Pape Diop, who was unable to secure a visa to enter the UK.

But they retained a very experienced and solid core, pinned together by central defenders David Navarro, formerly of Valencia, and their captain, 36-year-old Sergio Ballesteros.

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall had spoken of employing an "up and at 'em'' approach after Motherwell had their fair share of possession against Panathinaikos but lost 5-0 on aggregate to more clinical opponents.

There were more high balls than usual in the first half towards Michael Higdon, however Levante's two powerful centre-backs were helped out by the even more imposing figure of midfield anchor man Vicente Iborra as they snuffed out the threat.

Espanyol Preview

Helder Postiga left it late to earn Real Zaragoza a first win of the Primera Division season, sinking 10-man Espanyol 2-1 at the El Prat.

In a bad-tempered encounter which saw eight players booked, Alvaro Vazquez lit the touchpaper by firing the hosts ahead with a screamer just before half-time.

Juan Albin received his marching orders for a second booking after the interval and Antonio Apono levelled the tie from the penalty spot.

A constant menace in the second half, Postiga chipped away at Espanyol's resolve and eventually got his reward two minutes from time to earn Real their first points of the season.

Despite a cagey start, Raul Rodriguez almost opened the scoring in the 17th minute with a header that required a touch more accuracy.

Albin then picked out Hector Moreno in good space in the 34th minute but the Mexican headed past the near post.

Moreno headed over the crossbar next as Espanyol pressed on, with the breakthrough coming in sensational fashion in the 43rd minute.

Mubarak Wakaso picked out Vazquez's run, the young striker drilling home from 20 yards without breaking stride.

Following the restart, Portugal international Postiga forced Cristian Alvarez to tip a daisycutter around the post before Los Blanquillos were handed the opportunity to level.

Albin, already booked for a challenge.

Levante vs Espanyol Predictions: Levante 2-1 over Espanyol

Combination of great offensive attack by Levante and depleted Espanyol team makes this an easy win for Levante

Spanish La Liga 2012 Preview: Real Madrid vs Granada CF Predictions

Real Madrid will look to avenge their recent loss and will look to take it out against Grenada.

Real Madrid Preview

Madrid had won their last seven league meetings against Getafe and appeared set for another triumph when Gonzalo Higuain put them ahead in the 27th minute.

However, Getafe hit back in the second half to stun their star-studded opponents with goals from Juan Valera and Abdelaziz Barrada.

That completed a forgettable first week to the new campaign for Jose Mourinho's side, who started their title defence with a 1-1 home draw against Valencia last weekend before losing 3-2 to arch rivals Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Supercopa on Thursday.

Barca earlier tonight battled back from a half-time deficit to beat Osasuna 2-1 away but precisely the opposite happened to Madrid at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and they now find themselves five points adrift of the leading sides in La Liga.

Few of the divisions big guns relish going to Getafe, who last season beat Barca, Valencia, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid at home, but Real have dominated their neighbours in recent years and looked on course for another victory midway through tonight's game.

Mourinho's men really have should have taken the lead in the 16th minute but Mesut Ozil somehow contrived to miss an open goal from five yards out.

Granada CF Preview

Sevilla came from behind with 10-men to claim a valuable point from the first Andalusian derby of the season - a 1-1 draw at Granada.

The visitors had goalkeeper Diego Lopez sent off just after the half-hour mark when he upended Antonio Floro Flores inside the area and, despite his replacement Andres Palop saving Guillherme Siqueira's penalty, Mikel Rico rattled in the rebound to give Granada the lead.

However, Alvaro Negredo headed home a minute before the break to bring Sevilla level and Michel's side defended relatively comfortably in the second half until a late flurry from the hosts saw Darwin Marchis head two golden opportunities over and Floro Flores hit the crossbar.

After a bright opening by both sides the turning point appeared to have arrived on 34 minutes when Floro Flores was played through on goal and was brought down by Lopez as he tried to round him.

The Italian striker certainly exaggerated the contact as he flopped to the ground, but there was contact and Lopez had to see red having denied a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Palop made a smart save to his right to repel Siqueira's powerful spot-kick but his defence didn't react and Rico was left free to fire in the rebound.

Real Madrid vs Granada CF Predictions: Real Madrid 4-1 over Grenada

Real Madrid will look to wipe that bitter taste out of their mouths and taking it out on Grenada. This will be real offensive display by Madrid.

Real Madrid vs Granada CF Betting Odds:

Real Madrid 1.10 | Draw 9.00 | Granada 19.00

Pick: Real Madrid 90.90%

Real Madrid vs Granada CF Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Real Madrid -2.75 2.12 | Granada +2.75 1.82

Pick: Granada 3.75 54.94%

Spanish La Liga 2012 Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Predictions

Will Messi go ballistic over a weaker Valencia team? We'll find out Saturday in La Liga.

Barcelona Preview

Lionel Messi scored twice in the last 15 minutes as Barcelona survived a scare against ten-man Osasuna to continue their winning start to the new season.

Osasuna beat Barcelona 3-2 in last season's corresponding fixture and the Catalan giants looked in danger of suffering another upset when Joseba Llorente volleyed the home side in front in the 17th minute tonight.

Striker Nino then had a great chance to double Osasuna's lead in the 70th minute, but he hit the post when clean through and 10 minutes later Barca were ahead and on their way to three points.

Messi, as has often been the case, was the spark behind the comeback, and he drew the teams level in the 75th minute when he stabbed home Alexis Sanchez's pass to finish off a move he himself had started with a trademark darting run.

Osasuna were aggrieved that goal was allowed to stand after Alexis had appeared to be offside when he received the ball earlier in the move, and the home side's veteran midfielder Patxi Punal was handed his marching orders for taking his protests too far.

Barca quickly made the most of their man advantage as, in the 80th minute, summer signing Jordi Alba picked out Messi near the edge of the area and the Argentina superstar rolled a low shot into the far corner for the match-winner.

The victory sees Barca move onto six points after two games in La Liga, while they also won the first leg of the Spanish Supercopa against Real Madrid on Thursday.

Valencia Preview

Deportivo La Coruna came from two goals down to claim a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Mestalla.

Roberto Soldado had fired Valencia into an early 2-0 lead as he was twice brilliantly set up by Jonas, but Depor halved the deficit when Abel Aguilar bundled home from a corner seven minutes before half-time.

Sofiane Feghouli restored the hosts' two-goal lead before half-time with another wonderful finish from Dani Parejo's pass.

However, the visitors had much the better of the play after the break and after Aguilar had stroked home his second of the night, Pizzi equalised from the penalty spot as Ricardo Costa saw a second yellow card for barging into Riki.

Depor announced their return to the Primera Division with a 2-0 win over Osasuna on Monday night, but it was the hosts who seemed destined to get their first win on the board after some scintillating football saw them score twice in the first 28 minutes.

Barcelona vs Valencia Predictions: Barcelona 2-0 over Valencia

Messi will have his way in this game. Valencia will need to counter with a good defensive sound strategy but, I don’t think it will be enough to hold the Barcelona team

Barcelona vs Valencia Betting Odds:

Barcelona 1.23 | Draw 5.80 | Valencia 11.50

Pick: Barcelona 81.30% @ 1X2

Barcelona vs Valencia Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Barcelona -1.75 | Valencia +1.75 2.06

Pick: Valencia 1.75 48.54%

Spanish La Liga 2012 Preview: Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

Real Betis and Atletico Madrid will go head to head in this classic match up.

Real Betis Preview

Leo Baptistao scored his first senior goal for Rayo Vallecano as they continued their 100% start to the season with a 2-1 win at Real Betis.

The visitors went ahead within two minutes as Leo's cross was tapped home by Piti, but Betis responded immediately and Jorge Molina headed in his third goal of the campaign moments later.

However, despite withstanding an early Betis onslaught at the beginning of the second period, Rayo looked the more coordinated team throughout and deservedly got the winner on the hour mark when Lass Bangoura teed up Leo to rifle low past Fabricio in the Betis goal.

Both sides had got their campaign off to the perfect starts with wins in week one and both started quickly in this game too, with two goals arriving in the first four minutes.

Firstly, Leo burst down the left and after Fabricio failed to cut out his excellent ball into the middle Piti rolled the ball into the empty net.

Two minutes later though Betis were level when Benat's free-kick found Molina and his deflected effort looped over the helpless Ruben Martinez.

Atletico Madrid Preview

The hosts struck first when El Zhar stroked home from the edge of the area after just five minutes but brought Atleti level 15 minutes later with a stunning strike from distance that gave Gustavo Munua no chance.

The visitors then went on to dominate possession but lacked a cutting edge and it was Levante who came closest to a winner when Vicente Iborra's long-range effort came back off the top of the bar.

Levante were last season's surprise package, finishing sixth - their highest placing in Spanish football's top league.

And they started this campaign in enterprising fashion.

Jose Barkero's corner was cleared by Miranda but only as far as El Zhar - and the former Liverpool winger smashed the ball home to register his first goal for Los Granotes.

Atleti though responded well and after a sustained period of possession Arda made space for himself 25 yards from goal and arrowed the ball high into net.

Thereafter Atletico maintained possession for the majority of the half but it was Levante who came closest to scoring again as Iborra's piledriver from fully 30 yards rattled the top of the crossbar.

Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Predictions: Draw 1-1

If you’re watching this one .. Guarantee you’ll fall asleep before its over with. Both teams do not bring anything impressive to the table. This will be a slow pace match

Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Betting Odds:

Real Betis 2.94 | Draw 3.25 | Atletico Madrid 2.36

Pick: Draw 30.76% @ 1X2

Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Real Betis +0.25 1.89 | Atletico Madrid -0.25 2.04

Pick: Real Betis 1.25 - 52.91%

Norwich fans can be happy after pulling out a 1-1 draw with QPR. This was a much improved performance for Norwich City.

Every match performance has its good and its bad, but there was a lot more positive than negative for Norwich, which can give fans hope that it it will not be a season of struggle.

On a positive note about the tie, was full backs usually are good but, in this particular match they looked superb.

West Ham United Preview

Coming off of 3-0 win over Fulham is definitely a confident booster after falling to Swansea City 3-0 2 weeks ago. Though West Ham has suffered a major blow in losing star studded Andy Carroll for 6 weeks can really put a hamper on what West Ham is trying to accomplish. They’ll just have to carry on and move forward and hopefully pick up a good signee to replace Carroll.

Norwich City vs West Ham United Predictions: 2-3

West Ham comes into this match on a positive note after making an example of Fulham beating them 3-0 last week. Norwich will put up a fight in this one but, in the end Norwich doesnt match West Ham's offensive power.

Norwich City 2.15 | Draw 3.15 | West Ham United 3.15

Pick: Norwich City 26.92%

English Premier League 2012 Preview: Arsenal vs Southampton Predictions

Southhampton will seek to avenge their last week loss to Wigan and take it out on Arsenal in this weeks English Premier match up.

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal rained on Liverpool’s parade after beating them 2-0 at their home giving Liverpool their worst start of the season in years. Santi Cazorla continues to look to be the bright spot for Arsenal and mid fielder Abou Diaby flourishing in place of Nuri Sahinl, Arsenal looks like a team to reckon with in the English Premier League.

Scoring for Arsenal was a breath of fresh air after going scoreless their 1st 3 games.

It was after Cazorla’s shot that was saved by Reina was the ice breaker in Arsenal ending their scoreless streak for the campaign.

Southampton Preview

It was a showdown for the visiting Wigan who went into Southampton and took a 2-0 victory. Southampton could never really get into this match allowing Wigan to capitalize on their lethargic play.

It was a scoreless first half, Until Wigan struck and wasting little time with their offensive attack on the game. Shaun Maloney became alive and was the playmaker teaming up with Franco Di Santo who then turned and fired a heat missle into the net against a banged Kelvin Davis who sacrificed his side to stay in front.

Southampton was left chasing Wigan from behind in this match looking completely worn out through this match.

Arsenal vs Southampton Predictions: 2-3

Southampton came off of a tough loss last week losing to Manchester United on a remarkable hat trick pulled off by Robin Van Persie. Here is the kicker in this game Arsenal is not Manchester United. Southampton will unleash their frustration on a much weaker Arsenal team that doesn’t stack up offensive or defensive wise to Southampton.

Arsenal vs Southampton Betting Odds:

Arsenal 1.34 | Draw 4.2 | Southampton 8.5

Pick: Arsenal 0.35%

Arsenal vs Southampton Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Arsenal -1.5 2.01 | Southampton 1.5 1.89

Pick: Arsenal 60.05%

English Premier League 2012 Preview: Aston Villa vs Swansea City Predictions

Can Aston Villa continue their tear? We'll see when they face Swansea City in the English Premier League

Aston Villa Preview

A loss to Everton 1-3 and a tie 1-1 to Newcastle leave Aston Villa towards the bottom of the list in the EPL standing. Skipper Paul Lambert has a big task on his hands and knows it will take a team effort to pull themselves out of this hole. One of Villas biggest problems is that they have a mix of young talent and a combination of a couple world-class players who have proven PL ability.

Swansea City Preview

Swansea City sits at an impressive 2nd place in the EPL. After coming off impressive wins over West Ham 3-0 and Barnsley 3-1. Swansea continues to show that they do not lack firepower from the offensive side and look every bit of impressive on defense. Though there is one setback from the defense and that is Neil Taylor will miss the season with a severe broken ankle.

Aston Villa vs Swansea City Predictions: 2-1

Aston Villa just came off of a fresh 1-1 draw last week against Newcastle United. Thanks to the help of Ben Arfa who bailed Newcastle with a amazing goal as Aston Villa saw a victory taken before their eyes . They have Swansea this week I believe this will be a great and close match but, with the home crowd behind Aston Villa and the bitter loss from last week they will squeak a victory.

Aston Villa vs Swansea City Betting Odds:

Aston Villa 2.48 | Draw 3.15 | Swansea City 2.63

Pick: Aston Villa 0.26%

Aston Villa vs Swansea City Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Aston Villa -0.25 2.11 | Swansea City 0.25 1.8

Pick: Swansea City 27.05%

English Premier League 2012 Preview: Fulham vs W.B.A Predictions

Will Fulham bounce back from their loss last week? Let's see if West Brom has anything to say about that.

Fulham Preview

Fulham is not in the best spirits after a disappointing loss 2-3 to Manchester United and suffered a beating from West Ham United losing 3-0. On a positive note they can take their loss in stride against Manchester U. Fulham could not get it going against West Ham leaving them in disarray and scoreless.

W.B.A Preview

High octane West Brom had a close call after closing out a tough victory 4-2 over Yeovil in a clash at the Capital One Cup.

West Brom’s two scores came from mid fielder Shane Long and a goal each from Chris Brunt and Craig Dawson. It’s no puzzle that West Brom can score with the best of them also earlier this week WBA pulled off an impressive 2-0 win over Everton getting goals by stud striker Shane Long and Gareth McAuley. West Brom did the honors by ending Everton's 11-match winning streak in the Premier League.

Fulham vs W.B.A Predictions: 2-3

West Brom packs a nice offensive punch that will be more than Fulham can handle though it won’t be a push over West Brom will walk away with this match.

Fulham vs W.B.A Betting Odds:

Fulham 2.04 | Draw 3.2 | W.B.A 3.35

Pick: Fulham 0.27%

Fulham vs W.B.A Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Fulham -0.5 2.05 | W.B.A 0.5 1.85

Pick: Fulham 32.9%

English Premier League 2012 Preview: Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Predictions

Check out the clash of the titans when Manchester United go head up with Wigan Athletic this week in the English Premier League.

Manchester United Preview

We knew that Robin van Persie's move from Arsenal to Manchester United would pay off in a big way pulling off a hat trick Manchester 2-3 over Southampton.

Scoring in just what RVP does.

The addition of van Persie just added more fuel to the fire United already loaded with talent still has super stud striker in Wayne Rooney through whom their offense generates.

At the end of the day United is still United and will be their when it’s all said and done.

Wigan Athletic Preview

Wigan Athletic wasted no time in the first half. Scoring 3 of their 4 goals coming off of a 4-1 victory over Nottingham. Nottingham Forest got a quick score right after the break and had a one man up advantage for the last 22 minutes following a red card that was given to Wigan’s centre back Antolín Alcaraz.

Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Predictions: 3-0

Man U’s Robin van Persie 3 goal hat-trick gave Manchester United not only the 3-2 win over Southampton but gave skipper Sir Alex Ferguson's 1000th league game as a manager. Here is the scary thing about this game super striker Robin Van Persie can have the same type of game against Wigan Athletic. Let's face it Manchester United just has way to much firepower for a lot of teams in the Premier League.

Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Betting Odds:

Manchester United 1.25 | Draw 4.8 | Wigan Athletic 11.5

Pick: Manchester United 0.36%

Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Manchester United -1.75 1.97 | Wigan Athletic 1.75 1.97

Pick: Manchester United 82.7%

English Premier League 2012 Preview: Stoke City vs Manchester City Predictions

Manchester City will look to dominate once again but, will Stoke City have something to say about it.

Stoke City Preview

Stoke City is looking every bit of unimpressive at home with recent draws to Arsenal (0-0) and Wigan (2-2) also getting a hat trick pulled on them by Swindon’s James Collins in non league. Stoke City needs all the help that they can get. Recently, acquired 32 year old striker Michael Owens, who was released by Manchester United last season. Owens looks to help a struggling Stoke City offense scored 5 goals in 31 appearances for Manchester back in 2009.

Manchester City Preview

Manchester City came off of a 3-1(H) thrashing of QPR last weekend and draw 2-2(A) against Liverpool. Scoring machine Mario Balotelli will sit this game out and be out 10 days for eye surgery due to the wear of contact lenses. Never the less Manchester City still sits in 4th place in the Barclays and will continue to be one of the elites in the league.

Stoke City vs Manchester City Predictions: 1-2

Manchester City made easy work out of QPR 3-1 with goals by their talented young core of strikers Yaya Tour, Edin Dzecko and stand out Carlos Teves. Though they will be without the services of Balotelli, Manchester lead behind the big 3 will be enough to dispose Stoke City. The fact of the matter is Stoke City doesn’t match well with the speed of Manchester City's mid fielders thus making it difficult to beat the visiting Manchester City team.

Stoke City vs Manchester City Betting Odds:

Stoke City 4.5 | Draw 3.45 | Manchester City 1.7

Pick: Manchester City 0.26%

Stoke City vs Manchester City Asian Handicap Betting Odds:

Stoke City 0.75 1.98 | Manchester City -0.75 1.92

Pick: Manchester City 36.31%
