Super Saturday is the day most of the world are sitting at home, extremely chilled an looking to make their next profits by diving through the world of football. I have short listed a few picks that could hopefully be that answer.
Leicester v Man Utd (England)
Sparta Rotterdam v Ajax (Holland)
Anderlecht v KV Kortrijk (Belgium)
Malmo FF v AIK (Sweden)
SK Brann v Stromsgodset (Norway)
Hearts v Celtic (Scotland)
Benfica v Braga (Portugal)
St Gallen come into the 3rd round of the Swiss League sitting rock bottom after getting beaten 2-0 by Young Boys and 2-1 by Sion. They will be looking to turn things around to continue their mid-table run, much as they have over the last few years. They will be worried about the fact that they have only scored 1 goal so far, despite playing well and scoring in all of their pre-season friendlies till now. St Gallen will be reasonably confident of the home crowd support as they drew 1-1 and won 2-0 in both their games against Grasshopper last season, while losing both away games.
Grasshopper have come into this after a tiring 120 minute battle in the UEFA Europa League qualifying, that saw them go through 5-4 on aggregate. The long minutes put in by the players, could have an effect on them especially on the defensive concentration leading up to this game. They will be looking to put on a strong play much like they have in the opening 2 games of the league campaign winning 2-0; while then losing 4-3 in an exciting encounter against Luzern. Caio will be the dangerous striker for St Gallen to contain after he has smashed in 4 goals in the 2 games that they have played so far, and also got one in the Europa League game in mid-week.
This game has all the makings of an entertaining one in the Swiss League, and I expect there to be a lot of goals, especially with Grasshopper in such good scoring form early on in the campaign.
England Community Shield
Leicester City v Man Utd – Over 2 Asian Goal Line @ 1.50 (Bet365) – 4 points
Leicester City come into this contest as the champions of England looking forward to winning their first competition of the new season. The team has largely been in tact with the exception of N’Golo Kante who made his way to Chelsea. The team also welcomes Ahmed Musa, who is a good striker and already started out pre-season in sublime form. The game will rely heaveily on Riyad Mahrez to continue creating opportunities for his team mates, as well as being backed up in midfield by Drinkwater and King. Leicester have always found the back of the net against Manchester United, netting in their last 4 meetings, especially with both games landing up as 1-1 draws in the Premier League last year.
Manchester United are reinvigorated by the signing of new manager Jose Mourinho, as well as new players like Ibrahimovic, Mkhitariyan and Bailly who slot in straight away in the starting XI of Manchester United. Their talismanic captain Wayne Rooney will continued to be relied on, as he plays in the no.10 role just behind Ibrahimovic. United will have plenty of pace on the wings with Shaw and Valencia bombing forward to give support to Martial and Mkhitariyan. Manchester United have only failed to score in one of their pre-season games so far, which was Wayne Rooney’s testimonial in mid-week. Manchester United loving scoring goals against Leicester and have smashed 9 goals in their last 5 games against them and the new players will be eager to make their mark in this contest.
This game should be free flowing as was seen in their friendly games last week where Man United beat Galatasray 5-2, while Leicester played a 4-2 loss to Barcelona. I am going for over 2 Asian Goal Line as my pick in this Community Shield game.
HJK v Lahti – Over 3 Asian Goal Line @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 2.5 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
