Betting Tips for Today: Ronaldo-inspired Juventus should have far too much for Bologna

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has only added to the sense of certainty that Juventus will be crowned champions of Italy once more.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are just 11/50 (1.22) with 888Sport to retain their title having started the campaign with five wins from as many matches.

The same firm make Juve just 2/13 (1.15) to come out on top against Bologna on Wednesday in what looks to be another straightforward task for the Old Lady.

The visitors recorded a shock victory over Roma last time out, but the stats suggest they were somewhat lucky to secure a first win of the campaign. They’re 18/1 (19.0) to repeat their herorics with three points here and 23/4 (6.75) to secure an unlikely draw.

Now, Bologna face their toughest test of the season as they head to Turin and plenty of punters will be keen to find a way to back the home side. The key question is how to do so at a price that’s acceptable as a single selection?

The answer comes in the form of Juventus -2 on the Asian Handicap with 888Sport at 10/11 (1.91). This bet wins if Juve triumph by three or more goals and bettors will get their money back if the winning margin is exactly two.

So far in Serie A, the reigning champions have scored at least twice in every game while Bologna’s two strikes against Roma last time out were their first of the campaign.

Ronaldo’s red card against Valencia in the Champions League means the 33-year-old can focus on domestic matters for the foreseeable future and that’s a worrying prospect given their dominance in recent years.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is just 1/2 (1.50) to score anytime in this game having scored in back-to-back Serie A outings but a wide-margin victory looks the call.

The underdogs have already lost 3-0 to Inter Milan this term and given that Juventus have netted at least three times in four of the last six head-to-head meetings, another big win is on the cards here.

Liverpool vs Chelsea: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview

Liverpool will host Premier League rivals Chelsea in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday at Anfield ahead of a second crucial meeting between the pair this weekend.

Both sides are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, but only Liverpool have managed seven straight consecutive wins – with the Blues falling to a draw to West Ham on Sunday, tainting their otherwise flawless winning streak.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have momentum going into the fixture after beating Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Southampton in one week but Chelsea’s side have adapted well to Maurizio Sarri’s tactics and it will be a tough fixture.

Virgil van Dijk was substituted in the second half of Liverpool’s win over Southampton with a rib injury and will most likely not be risked.

Klopp is expected to rest the majority of his side ahead of a second crucial clash against Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday and will likely give Simon Mignolet, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne a starting berth.

Match Preview


Maurizio Sarri Chelsea 2018-19

Liverpool have been enjoying their best start to a Premier League season with seven consecutive wins in all competitions, and it could be stretched to eight should they register victory over Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday.

The Reds will have the benefit of hosting Chelsea at home in the first of their two-legged clash, though Klopp is expected to rotate his players ahead of the Premier League visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Second-choice goalkeeper Mignolet is in line to make the grade ahead of Alisson, with the likes of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri also to be given minutes.

Klopp may be tempted to rest the front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino for the Carabao Cup fixture, which will be good news for Daniel Sturridge, who slotted in well as the Brazilian’s replacement during the Champions League win over PSG in which he opened the scoring.

Pedro will be missing from the Chelsea squad after picking up an injury in their Europa League clash last week, though Hazard could be deployed in attack should Sarri be keen on naming a strong side to face the Reds.

Despite early reservations that the Chelsea players would struggle to adapt to Sarri’s favoured tactical methods, the team have registered six wins out of seven games this season and look to be a fluid and cohesive side.

Sarri praised Klopp before the game for his team management and the German was quick to return the compliment, telling reporters: “The biggest change I ever saw in such a short space of time, wow. The style is completely different. What a manager he is, to be honest.

“I’m pretty much a supporter of his since I saw [his teams] at Napoli. Outstanding football, and now doing it in a very interrupted pre-season [due to the World Cup].

“Eden [Hazard] was not there, [Olivier] Giroud, [N’Golo] Kante. Starting the season and you see immediately the impact? All my respect. It’s really good to watch. Good job so far.”

FIFA 19 Skill Moves: How to do Neymar Flick, La Croqueta & all new and five-star skills

Winning matches in FIFA 19 is a difficult business. Gamers will do anything to try to improve and grind out those wins – with some of the better players using skills to get an advantage over their opponents.

At first, skills can seem daunting, but with a little bit of practice, you can use them to get the better of your opponents. Try them out in the Practice Arena or against offline opponents to get to learn them and then unleash them online to turn those losses into wins!

Nine new skill moves have been added to FIFA 19. Some of these are minor improvements on old ones, while others including Neymar’s Rainbow Flick, the Franck Ribery Flick and Andreas Iniesta’s La Croqueta are all new and can be game-changing if used correctly.

FIFA 19 is released worldwide on Friday, September 28.

Posted by Goal.com on Tuesday, 25 September 2018

FIFA 18 added four new skill moves to the collection, but there are more than twice that many new additions in FIFA 19. Some of them are quite difficult to pull off and need a lot of practice, but most are straightforward if you are confident at skills already.

The Neymar Rainbow Flick can only be pulled off by Neymar himself, otherwise the player will just do a regular rainbow flick.

ONE-STAR SKILL MOVES

These skill moves can be done by every single player in the game – including goalkeepers.

The addition of new juggling moves as well as tricks while the ball is in the air make the ball juggle more useful in FIFA 19, but it’s still best used to taunt your opponent!

FOUR-STAR SKILL MOVES

Four-star skill moves are more difficult than the lower levels and also look more impressive when you pull them off. The spins and feints can be used to outsmart the defenders, allowing you to get room for a shot or cross.

FIVE-STAR SKILL MOVES

The five-star skill moves are only performed by a small number of players in the game. These are the most difficult tricks to perform in real life, and in FIFA 19. Some of them require a lot of practice before you can get them perfect and you’ll often see the best pro players and eSports champions using them in tournaments and online.

PLAYERS WITH FIVE-STAR SKILLS


Neymar | FIFA 19

These players are not just limited to gold players, with some lower-rated players also capable of doing tricks and flicks, even if they’re good for little else in FIFA 19!
