Everton vs Salford City predictions

Everton vs Salford City predictions

The League Cup second round gets underway this week with Everton welcoming Salford City to Goodison Park on Wednesday night (8:15pm kick-off).

The Toffees reached the quarter-finals last season and will have aspirations of going even further this time around, with serial winner Carlo Ancelotti no doubt eyeing up silverware to truly leave his mark on Merseyside.

His side kicked off the new Premier League campaign in emphatic style, seeing off Tottenham 1-0 in the capital, with his three new midfield signings slotting in harmoniously to his new-look XI and giving Evertonians a real sense of optimism for the season ahead.

The Italian coach is accustomed to glittering European nights and pitting his wits against continental giants, so the prospect of Salford presents a different challenge for the elite tactician to say the least.

Part owned by Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and David Beckham, the League Two club will be relishing the chance to take on Premier League opposition and will hope to cause an early-round upset.

Uefa Europa Conference League

As from this season the winners of the League Cup will not qualify for the Europa League — as in previous campaigns — but will enter the play-off phase for the Uefa Europa Conference League (UECL), the new European competition starting from 2021/22.

The third-tier continental tournament was announced in December 2018 and gets underway next season. However, this does not mean the number of teams qualifying for the Champions League or the Europa League will be affected. There will still be four English clubs in the Champions League and two in the Europa League.

If the League Cup winners qualify for European competition by their standing in the league, then the team who finished sixth in the Premier League (or seventh if the FA Cup is won by a top-six club) will enter the UECL play-offs.

The Europa Conference League will be played on a Thursday night alongside the Europa League and will consist of 32 teams in the group stages. The premise is to allow teams from smaller European leagues to compete in continental football alongside some of the bigger nations.

For Everton this may well present the perfect opportunity to prioritise a competition like the League Cup. The Toffees have not lifted silverware since their FA Cup win in 1995, so the prospect of a domestic cup run with the opportunity to mark a return to Europe could be a tantalising one for Ancelotti as he weighs up his priorities this term.

Everton & Salford City’s previous line-ups:

  • Everton (vs Tottenham): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne; Allan, Doucoure, Gomes; Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
  • Salford City (vs Exeter City): Hladky; Threlkeld, Eastham, Clarke, Touray; Lowe, Gibson, Hunter; Armstrong, Andrade, Henderson.

Fabian Delph, Mason Holgate, Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin all remain sidelined for Everton. Ancelotti may be tempted to play around with his side following the win over Spurs, with players like Jonjoe Kenny, Tom Davies and Moise Kean in line to make the starting XI.

Players to watch:

  • Everton: If Ancelotti does indeed tinker with his side, this could be the perfect opportunity for the Italian to get a closer look at academy graduate Jonjoe Kenny. The adventurous right-back shone during an audacious loan move to Schalke last season and will be desperate to fight his way into first-team plans at Goodison Park. Standing in his way, though, is club captain Seamus Coleman, but if Kenny can impress when handed the opportunity, he will be putting considerable pressure on his 31-year-old right-back counterpart.
  • Salford City: In a game of such magnitude for Salford, the club will need cool and composed heads to settle the nerves and handle the big occasion. In Darron Gibson, manager Graham Alexander has a player who not only packs a wealth of experience and top-flight ability, but also someone who knows the opposition very well. The former Manchester United midfielder plied his trade for Everton across a five year spell between 2012 and 2017. Admittedly times have changed quite drastically since the Irishman left Goodison Park, but a few of his old teammates have stuck around and could get a run out later this week. Gibson will be chomping at the bit to get stuck in and prove his worth at his old stomping ground.

Scoreline prediction: Everton 2-0 Salford City

Lyon vs Dijon

Lyon vs Dijon predictions

Lyon will commence their Ligue 1 season on Friday night against Dijon (20:00 kick-off), just over a week since they were eliminated from the Champions League semi-finals at the hands of eventual winners Bayern Munich. 

Rudi Garcia’s men put up a valiant fight in the continent’s flagship tournament earlier this month, knocking out Juventus and Manchester City en route to their semi-final showdown against Bayern, but they will be desperate to improve upon their seventh-placed finish in Ligue 1 last term.

The Kids will not be competing in Europe this campaign following a disappointing domestic campaign in 2019/20, in which the French top-flight ended prematurely. As a result they can focus solely on domestic affairs this time round and potentially causing an upset in the upper slopes against reigning French champions PSG.

The Ligue 1 season got underway at the weekend, and Dijon kicked things off with a tame 1-0 reversal against Angers, so manager Stephane Jobard will be eager to bounce back at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, though he faces a very tough task against an in-form Lyon.

Lyon & Dijon‘s previous line-ups:

  • Lyon (vs Bayern Munich): Lopes; Denayer, Marcelo, Marcal; Dubois, Caqueret, Guimaraes, Aouar, Cornet; Ekambi, Depay.
  • Dijon (vs Angers): Gomis; Ngouyamsa, Manga, Lautoa, Ngonda; Marie, Diop, Ndong; Dina-Ebimbe, Chouiar, Scheidler.

Despite just recently playing Bayern in the Champions League semi-final, Garcia is likely to name an unchanged XI, bar one or two tweaks. Lyon’s poor domestic finish to 2019/20 will give the Kids an added incentive to redeem themselves this time round and that could start with a convincing performance against Dijon on home turf.

Players to watch:

  • Lyon: Part of the reason for Lyon’s disastrous domestic season last time out was twofold. First, Sylvinho oversaw a shocking start to the campaign, which included seven successive winless games and culminated in his sacking. The second was an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained by club captain Memphis Depay in mid-December. The Dutchman had scored nine goals in 13 Ligue 1 games prior to his injury, and Lyon won just four games in the subsequent nine without their skipper. Having finished just a point outside the top six, there is little doubt Depay’s involvement would have got them over the line. Either way, he is now back, fit and firing on all cylinders and will be determined to make up for lost time.
  • Dijon: The Owls have their work cut out for them when they face an attack as threatening and lethal as Lyon’s, as Man City and Juventus will attest to. The attacking duo of Depay and Karl Toko Ekambi, flanked by the speed and precision of Maxwel Cornet, means Dijon could be in for a tough night of football, which is why the club’s more experienced heads need to stand up and take control. In 32-year-old Bruno Ecuele Manga, Dijon have a centre-back with vast experience and someone who, having plied his trade for Cardiff City in the Premier League, has tussled with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Gabonese teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang — he knows what it takes to face the big boys and that will be key on Friday night.

Scoreline prediction: Lyon 3-1 Dijon

Wolfsburg vs Lyon

Wolfsburg vs Lyon predictions

Lyon will be looking to win the Women’s Champions League for the fifth year in a row when they face old rivals Wolfsburg in the final on Sunday at 7pm.

The two sides are regarded as arguably the top women’s teams in Europe, often going up against each other for the Champions League. In fact, Sunday’s meeting with be the fourth Champions League final between Wolfsburg and Lyon, with the former winning the first before losing the last two. Lyon have also knocked Wolfsburg out of the Champions League at some stage in the past four seasons.

Beating local rivals PSG in the semi-final thanks to Wendie Renard’s goal, Lyon are also in their ninth final in 11 years, winning six of those – all of which are competition records. But Lyon haven’t been perfect and have shown signs of weaknesses that Wolfsburg will look to exploit. The German side are in their fifth final thanks to a 1-0 win over Barcelona but rode their luck at times thanks to poor finishing from their opponents.

But that shouldn’t take away from what will no doubt be another good clash between the two sides. Lyon are unbeaten in competitive football since May 2018 while Wolfsburg have not lost in 40 games (when Lyon beat them). Whose record is going to tumble this weekend?

Wolfsburg & Lyon’s previous line-ups:

  • Wolfsburg (vs Barcelona): Abt; Doorsoun-Khajeh, Hendrich, Janssen, Wedemeyer; Huth, Engen, Popp, Rolfö; Harder, Pajor.
  • Lyon (vs PSG): Bouhaddi; Bronze, Buchanan, Renard, Karchaoui; Gunnarsdottir, Kumagai; Cascarino, Marozsán, Majri; Parris*.

Wolfsburg have no injury concerns or suspensions and go into Sunday’s game at full strength. Lyon, meanwhile, will be without Nikita Parris after she was sent off in the win over PSG. Amandine Henry is a doubt for Lyon after picking up an injury in the quarter-final win over Bayern, while Griedge Mbock Bathy, Jessica Silva and Ada Hegerberg remain out.

Players to watch:

Wolfsburg: The Germans have a lot of stars in their side that rightly receive praise, but one very important player that appears to go under the radar is Ingrid Engen. The Norwegian midfielder joined Wolfsburg from December 2018 but only really became part of the team for the 2019/20 season, after an impressive World Cup campaign. Still just 22, Engen plays with the air of someone much older and more experienced, but that’s what makes her so vital to Wolfsburg’s side.

Sitting at the heart of the Wolfsburg midfield, Engen helps her side at both ends of the pitch, with a calmness in front of the defence – sometimes dropping in line with her centre-backs to receive the ball and move it forward. But she is just as dangerous in attack, as shown in the 9-1 quarter-final win over Glasgow City, when Engen scored two goals. The first was a well-taken header from a corner, having been unmarked, but the second came with a lovely late run into the box to get onto the end of a cross, running in front of the stationary defender. Engen won’t be solely relied on for her goals against Lyon, but her performance will be key to how Wolfsburg do.

Lyon: With Nikita Parris suspended, Ada Hegerberg injured and Eugenie Le Sommer not fully fit, English forward Jodie Taylor could be given the responsibilities of leading the line for Lyon. The 34-year-old joined Lyon from OL Reign – their United States sister club – in the summer, having participated in the NWSL Challenge Cup, replacing the regular season.

One a deal until the end of the year, Taylor has already tasted glory with Lyon, coming on as a late substitute in the French Cup final win, though she did not take a penalty in the shootout. Taylor is yet to get on the scoresheet for Lyon having only played a handful of minutes, but the veteran striker gets goals wherever she goes, and an extended period of time on the pitch could see Taylor fire the French side to another Champions League victory.

Scoreline prediction: Wolfsburg 2-1 Lyon

Arsenal v Liverpool

Arsenal vs Liverpool predictions

Arsenal and Liverpool are set to square off in the official curtain-raiser for the 2020/21 season on Saturday afternoon at 4.30pm.

It’s the first chance for either club, who are both determined for more success in this forthcoming season, to claim silverware.

The Reds enter on the back of completing one of the most dominant Premier League seasons to date and must start off as favourites, but given when this game is being played, there’s a possibility manager Jurgen Klopp won’t quite have his squad fine-tuned.

An evenly contested match would obviously play into the Gunners’ hands. They are still growing under Mikel Arteta and harbour strong ambitions of restoring former glories as well as establishing the north Londoners as Champions League mainstays once again.

Another fascinating tidbit is both are level on 15 wins apiece with only Manchester United (21) claiming more FA Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) triumphs.

Arsenal & Liverpool’s previous line-ups:

  • Arsenal (vs Chelsea): Martínez; Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Bellerín*, Xhaka, Ceballos*, Maitland-Niles; Pépé, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
  • Liverpool (vs Newcastle United): Alisson; Williams, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Milner, Keïta; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Origi, Minamino.

Arteta heads into Saturday’s game at Wembley missing up to six players through injury. Among the absentees are Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel Martinelli, with Hector Bellerín a doubt for the FA Cup winners. Dani Ceballos, who started in that final win against Chelsea, is now back at parent club Real Madrid with his future in doubt.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are without skipper Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip.

Players to watch:

  • Arsenal: A new season presents fresh opportunities and for the Gunners, under Arteta, it’s a chance to build on their progress following his appointment midway through the last campaign. After starting on the back foot, Arsenal finished 2019/20 strong and nothing illustrated that more than winning the FA Cup, but victories over Manchester City and this weekend’s opponents Liverpool across three days also made folks sit up and take notice. In that 2-1 win over the newly-crowned Premier League champions, Alexandre Lacazette proved his worth, scoring and creating the other goal. He’s been slightly in the shadow of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has become Mr. Wembley for Arsenal, having bagged four goals in his last two appearances at the home of English football. Aubameyang, though, has yet to score past Liverpool — since moving to north London — who are, of course, managed by his former Borussia Dortmund boss.
  • Liverpool: For the first time since 1990, we have a Community Shield game with Liverpool being represented as English champions. Back then, Kenny Dalglish’s men shared the prize with eternal foes Manchester United after the game ended in a 1-1 draw, that option no longer exists and Klopp has the chance of winning his fifth piece of silverware as the Reds manager, alongside Champions League, Premier League, Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup titles. Understandably, this game isn’t the highest priority, that would be successfully defending their Premier League crown. So, we could see a starting line-up consisting of a blend of big names and promising talents. Someone determined to feature — given his competitive nature — is Mohamed Salah, who enjoys playing against their London-based rivals. Across his six previous meetings against Arsenal in a Liverpool jersey, he’s managed to score in all but two games, registering five goals and creating a further two, this included a brace last August.

Scoreline prediction: Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool

Celtic vs Ferencvaros predictions

Celtic vs Ferencvaros predictions

Celtic will continue their quest to reach the Champions League group stages when they play host to Hungarian champions Ferencvaros at Parkhead on Wednesday night (7:45pm kick-off). 

The Bhoys have already blitzed past Icelandic outfit KR Reykjavik 6-0 in the first qualifying round, but face a much more potent threat in the form of Ferencvaros. Their defeat to Romanian club Cluj in the qualifying phase last year should act as a cautionary tale when facing Eastern European opposition.

The Green Eagles clinched their 31st Hungarian title last season and have previous in continental football, having defeated Juventus in the 1965 Fairs Cup and reached the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup final in 1975, but they haven’t competed in the Champions League group stages since the 1995/96 campaign.

Managed by former Tottenham and West Ham striker Serhiy Rebrov, Ferencvaros have already knocked out Djurgardens IF of Sweden but travel to Glasgow knowing they are in for a much tougher test. The question is: who will come out on top at Celtic Park?

Celtic & Ferencvaros’s previous UCL line-ups:

  • Celtic (vs KR Reykjavik): Barkas; Elhamed, Jullien, Bitton, Taylor; Brown, McGregor, Forrest, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard.
  • Ferencvaros (vs Djurgardens IF): Dibusz; Botka, Kovacevic, Blazic, Civic; Kharatin, Somalia, Isael; Nguen, Uzuni, Boli.

Summer signing Albian Ajeti made his debut in the previous qualifier against Reykjavik and scored his first Celtic goal at the weekend against Dundee United, so he could be rewarded with a start on Wednesday, either in front of star striker Odsonne Edouard, or alongside him.

Ferencvaros have their own threats, and one who could cause the Celtic midfield a few problems is Rio de Janeiro native Somalia, who returned to Budapest this summer after a spells away with Toulouse and in the Middle East. Without the rousing Celtic atmosphere, the Brazilian believes the hosts aren’t the favourites entering this contest.

“Celtic has a lot of history and tradition as a club but they are not favourites for this match,” he declared. “Without fans it makes our chances level. We have a 50 per cent qualifying chance.”

Players to watch:

  • Celtic: Mohamed Elyounoussi helped himself to a brace in the thrashing of KR Reykjavik in the last round, netting the first and last goals against the Icelandic outfit. The Norway international has the ability to make the difference for Neil Lennon’s side and – with his confidence high – may well find himself on the scoresheet in midweek again.
  • Ferencvaros: Signed from Norwegian club Stabaek in 2018, Franck Boli poses a menacing threat for the Hungarian club, meaning Celtic’s defence will need to remain sturdy and alert when he takes to the field. The Ivorian was the Eliteserien (Norwegian first division) top scorer in 2018 and provided an assist in the previous round against Djurgardens IF, so the Bhoys can expect a tough night of football when the Hungarian titans roll in.

Scoreline prediction: Celtic 2-1 Ferencvaros

Inter Milan vs Sevilla

Inter Milan vs Sevilla prediction

The stage is set in Cologne for the 2019/20 Europa League final between Sevilla and Inter Milan on Friday night (20:00 kick-off).

Sevilla are the record title holders of this competition and will look to extend their trophy cabinet to six when they take to the turf later this week.

Under former Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui they have defeated Premier League opposition in Wolves and Man Utd to reach the showpiece and will be confident of knocking out another of the continent’s perennial powerhouses.

This will be the first-ever meeting in Europe between these two sides and it offers a tantalising prospect between two giants of the game. Inter Milan are unbeaten in the Europa League this term, having dropped out of the Champions League, while Sevilla have never lost a tie in Europe that’s been played out over a single leg.

Antonio Conte is a serial winner and won this competition — then known as the UEFA Cup — during his playing days for Juventus, so he will know what it takes to get the job done and secure continental silverware for the Nerazzurri. But, Sevilla will not go down without a fight.

Sevilla & Inter Milan’s previous line-ups:

  • Sevilla (vs Man Utd): Bono; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Reguilon; Fernando, Jordan, Banega; Suso, Ocampos, En-Nesyri
  • Inter Milan (vs Shakhtar Donetsk): Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Bastoni; D’Ambrosio, Barella, Brozovic, Gagliardini, Young; Lukaku, Martinez.

Both managers are likely to name unchanged XIs from their semi-final victories, with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez set to continue their blossoming partnership up-top for Inter Milan, but they face one of Europe’s most in-form and formidable defences in Sevilla.

Jesus Naves and Sergio Reguilon have proven a revelation as full-back options this term, while the centre-back acquaintanceship of Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos will not part quite so openly as Inter found against Shakhtar in their 5-0 drubbing last time out.   

Players to watch: 

Sevilla: This game is set to be the final in a Sevilla jersey for midfielder Ever Banega who agreed to end his second spell at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán earlier this year. The 32-year-old Argentine will soon relocate to Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Shabab, before that a chance to win a third Europa League title at the expense of former side Inter Milan, and the ex-Nerazzurri man has been in good form of late having assisted in their wins over AS Roma and Wolves.

Inter Milan: “It’s been a while since I’ve played like this, [those] goals are very important to me, we are preparing for big things,” was the verdict of Lautaro Martinez after Inter breezed into this season’s Europa League final. And he wasn’t kidding. Martinez, who has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, grabbed a brace and created another in their 5-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, both efforts were his first in the competition since the round of 32.

RB Leipzig vs PSG

RB Leipzig v PSG: predictions

RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain go head-to-head for a place in the Champions League final on Tuesday at 8:00 PM.

RB Leipzig v PSG build-up, pre-match team news and previous lineups:

Both sides are aiming to reach the final for the first time in their history in and if Leipzig were to do so, they would become the seventh German side ever to appear in the showpiece, a number bettered only by English teams. A win for PSG would see them become the first French side to reach the final since Monaco in 2003/04.

To get this far, Leipzig have taken down more established heavyweights, such as Benfica in the groups as well as Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid in the knockout rounds. The latter were defeated without the help of striker Timo Werner, who has completed a summer move to Chelsea.

PSG, meanwhile, cruised through a group containing Real Madrid, Galatasaray and Club Brugge, while the French champions saw off stern tests from Borussia Dortmund and Atalanta (thanks, Eric Choupo-Moting) in the knockouts to compete in their first Champions League semi-final since 1994/95.

  • RB Leipzig (vs Atletico Madrid): Gulacsi; Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg, Tasende; Laimer, Kampl; Sabitzer, Olmo, Nkunku; Poulsen.
  • PSG (vs their Atalanta): Navas*; Kehrer, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Herrera, Marquinhos, Gueye; Neymar, Icardi, Sarabia.

Summer signings Hwang Hee-chan and Benjamin Henrichs are both ineligible for this season’s Champions League while centre-back Ibrahima Konate is recovering from hip surgery.

Kylian Mbappe managed 30 minutes against Atalanta and should return to Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI for what is arguably PSG’s biggest-ever match. Layin Kurzawa will likely miss out once again while influential midfielder Maro Verratti is struggling with a calf problem.

Keylar Navas was withdrawn during the second half against Atalanta due to a hamstring injury, so Sergio Rico is likely to deputies between the sticks once again. Angel Di Maria is back from suspension.

Players to watch:

RB Leipzig: Werner may have departed but that doesn’t leave Julian Nagelsmann without attacking talent. Chief among the German’s options is versatile midfielder Marcel Sabitzer. Able to operate in the middle of the pitch or on the flanks, the Austria international possesses wonderful delivery with the ball at his feet and an almost unmatched work ethic without the ball. Sabitzer has been directly involved in six goals in his last six Champions Leagues (scoring four and assisting two) including setting up Dani Olmo’s opener against Atletico Madrid last time out. PSG will allow him space at their own peril. 

PSG: Although he only managed 30 minutes against Atalanta, you can be sure Kylian Mbappe will be firmly in Tuchel’s plans for this one. The France international has been directly involved in 10 goals in just eight Champions League appearances in 2019/20 (5 goals, 5 assists), averaging a goal or assist every 48 minutes. PSG themselves have netted at least once in their last 33 Champions League matches, just one behind the record, Real Madrid between 2011-2014. And this is in no small part thanks to the unique understanding between Mbappe and Neymar.
