After the victory at the limit of the tour, Benfica, Europa League finalist previous editions, starts as a big favorite in this confrontation, it is hard to think that the qualification rate. The hosts undergoing a very good, ranking first in the domestic league and in European competition, are indomitable at home by the end of 2012.

Tottenham - Dnepr

Tottenham – Dnepr, stop Ukrainians return with an edge

For at 10:05 p.m., he receives the visit of Tottenham at White Hart Lane in Dnepr sixteenths Europa League second leg, match passed Digisport 2. Ukrainians easily start favorite in qualifying after winning the first leg 1-0 and have an important advantage namely technical bench led by Juande Ramos who coached Spurs in terms of experience can not compare with the bench adverse Interim Sherwood.

Ukrainians seem to have many advantages on their side besides the 1-0 result of the tour. Firstly in terms of players unavailable for this game, because Dnepr has no lack of brand, the stars headed by Giuliano, Konoplyanka or Zozulya being 100% fit. Sherwood has nothing to fear because all these players are quick, good on the counterattack and perhaps more importantly, players of execution which might surprise a defense quite inconsistent, and a goal scored by Dnepr would oblige practical English to enroll another 3 without receiving another to qualify. One problem for Juande Ramos could mean lack of game official, because the championship in Ukraine has not started, but the game of the tour, one contre and very quickly showed that hosts then sit very well physically and there are no problems In this regard.

On the other side so, the English have great problems with the novel actually headed Chiriches who joins the “infirmary” and other two important defenders Kaboul and Walker. Neither midfield and attack have escaped absent because Capoue, Sigurdsson, but the hosts missing Lamela. Defoe also most likely ended his career at Tottenham, it preparing for departure to Toronto and how he feels some pain and almost certainly will not risk now. The good news comes from Sandro who returned to training after two months of absence, but definitely Sherwood will not risk him in a match so difficult. Spurs are presented tonight after two consecutive defeats, the English losing 1-0 in the championship ahead of Norwich after previously surrendered and Ukraine. The defeat in the championship pretty much could hurt the morale, as the spread against Liverpool and hence the final Champions League place, was increased to 6 points.

Switzerland defeated Albania 1-0 on Saturday and the 3 points were secured by defender Fabien Schar, 24, scored a goal earlier in the game after 5 minutes.
 Schar analyzed in an interview with, two of Group A match against National Anghel Iordanescu.

“It will be difficult, very difficult. Against France we saw how powerful Romania. They played very well, they were aggressive at the same level with the French.

The technician first representative thought of three possible changes, but the latest indications show that it sticks to just two changes from the game against France: Torje in place of Adi Popa and Florin Andone Keserű.

Keserű, victor in the duel Andone – Alibec

Although he lacked achievements, Andone showed why he was the top scorer in this season’s Cordoba. It was like a thorn in the opposing defense and was on the brink to fool Koscielny on the first innings, when the referee has not seen Arsenal defender irregular intervention.

Player’s profile fits perfectly match against Switzerland, a team that has two central defenders massive that can be easily fooled by a quick and opportunistic football. However, given that played constantly in Cordoba coach does not consider apt so soon for another intense match. It has seen since the second half with the band suffers from Hexagon that Andone Florin Chapter freshness, being the first tricolor changed. Not least from the hand injury could be another reason for the coaching staff to choose another peak on Wednesday.

Initially it seemed that Alibec a player in great shape, capable of executions special highlights of the parties, would be the one to take his place in the first “11” “Spaniard” in the lot, but the scandal involving striker Astra brought him pole position on Keserű.

We must improve our game and I hope to be qualified to the next stage after the match with the Romanians, “said Schar.

Xhaka and Shaqiri Beware!

Although he played in the first stage of the group, with Albania 1-0 in 36 minutes numerical superiority, Switzerland failed a very good match. It is possible that Swiss to be relaxed and wanted to conserve their energy for dispute against us, but even so a few things worth mentioning.

First, Petkovic’s defense team is extremely uncertain, with a real Schar control tower at set-pieces, but very rudimentary balloons away. Also, visitors laterial – Lichsteiner, especially Rodriguez – up greatly, so that we can create spaces.

Romania will meet Switzerland on Wednesday, from 19:00, at the “Parc des Princes.
