Club Friendly - Istrian Winter Cup

2015-02-03 13:00:00 (This report was created at 2015-02-03 11:23:47)

Market Information

As I posted at the weekend before the game against Gyirmot, word of warning before you take odds of 1.33 on CFR Cluj today to beat Novigrad.

A lot of players left CFR Cluj this winter after coach Miriuta left the club, the players that left are Tade, Ivanovski, Chanturia, Susic, Rada, Christian, Felgueiras, Dore, Jaime and Felgueiras. All these players were regulars or in the squad for each game. From the original squad with which CFR Cluj started the season only defenders Larie, Camora and Savin, midfielders Deac, Paun, Muniru, Petrucci and Jakolis, strikers Costea and Jazvic are left.

CFR Cluj still have big financial problems. If they don't pay their debts by March, then they won't get the license for the next season.

We was successful at the weekend when Gyirmot beat CFR Cluj 3-2 after coming from 0-2 down. Unconfirmed rumours that the game was fixed.

Odds:  Novigrad 6.93  Draw 4.90  CFR Cluj 1.33

Fiorentina v Tottenham

UEFA Europa League

Market Information:

Tottenham play Chelsea in the Capital One Cup Final this Sunday, so it leaves coach Mauricio Pochettino with a big decision tonight as whether to rest players. He rotated his line-ups in the group stages and with the biggest game for Tottenham in years this Sunday, my guess is he will against rest some players this evening.

Tottenham are already missing defender Younes Kaboul (11 apps), midfielder Etienne Capoue (12 apps), striker Emmanuel Adebayor (11 apps/2 goals) who did not travel with the squad, while I wouldn't be surprised to see star men Harry Kane (22 apps/17 goals - top scorer) and Christian Eriksen (26 apps/10 goals) both rested. 

Odds:  Fiorentina 2.02  Draw 3.43  Tottenham 3.59


Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino keeps Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Danny Rose on the bench, but Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado all start.

Tottenham: Lloris, Chiriches, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Bentaleb, Stambouli, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela, Soldado.

Subs: Vorm, Rose, Walker, Mason, Paulinho, Townsend, Kane.
