This Thursday the major tournament of football is starting " The World Cup" and like any other international tournament, the elite are present. Sadly two huge fan bases won't be able to support their teams. The Italians & the Dutch failed to qualify and it wasn't really a surprise at least for me, both don't have the quality like before and some players aging. But in a few years time, they'll bounce back especially with the talents coming through. Like previous tournaments, there's the favorites and the dark horse(s), and there are, of course, the teams that are just proud to be in Russia. I'll go briefly through who's favorites and predictions for group stages and further rounds.
It's been a busy period during Mourinho stint with the Red Devils since he joined, records been broken on the pitch and in the transfer window. As the season draws nearer and as usual all teams especially that aim to win the title are trying to get the best players we take a look at Jose pros and cons as Man Utd manager. Was he a success in Man Utd standards compared to previous two managers.
Lots of discussion about tonight game, we are all awaiting the finale between two giants of football globally and especially on European level. I really don't care about the two teams but I'm fan of two players on both teams one is Gareth Bale from Real Madrid and the other is the amazing Buffon from Juventus. When you talk predictions you have to take certain criteria in football to judge both teams and give your final opinion and who's going to lift most prestigious trophy in football universe. So when you talk tactics Allegri proven himself many times in the last few years and as for Zidane still considered newbie although doing great with the galacticos. When you talk players definitely Real got the upper hand and especially their bench. As for passion & drive to win both got it because the Italian giants want to win for Buffon & the Spanish want to break the record again. It's pretty much deadlock but for me if am I going to go with which team I prefer to win it's definitely Juventus to send off their number one and captain in a special way and opportunity to win the best player in the world. You check the English panel of pundits all of them are going with the Italians which from experience in checking their predictions majority of the time they don't get right. As for Balague who is football expert on Spanish football had more of preference & not a prediction for Juventus to win. So at the end of the night it's pretty much up for grasp for any of the two sides, but personally I've literally made my betting on the number of goals, corner & yellow cards not on the teams because who knows what happens on the pitch.
