Underdog hero Hungary are rather inexperienced in major football tournaments and hence their chances were not too good against Austria…
Hungary failed to qualify for the Euro finals in the past 44 years and they played their last World Cup game in 1986. With those stats and records ahead, we were not supposed to give any chances to underdog hero Hungary: they should have lost the game rather easily against the likes of Bayern Munich’s David Alaba and all the other Bundesliga and Premier League players in Austria.
And that’s exactly how the game started: David Alaba could have scored a great goal as early as the 40th second. His shot hit the post, however. If it goes in, we might have seen a different game and what happened next, lead to incredible sports scores news with some terrific game from the Hungarian Euro 2016 squad.
Bernd Strock’s men put out a terrific team performance. After his shot on goal, David Alaba hardly even touched the ball because the Hungarian football tactics worked perfectly. In fact, they created lots of chances to score and could have won by even better live score results. Austria’s completely merited red card didn’t help Austria’s chances either.
Hungary’s number 9, Ádám Szalai, a creature of La Fábrica of Real Madrid took the lead for Hungary in the 61th minute at the end of a beautiful combination. That goal perfectly shows what the expression “joga bonito” means. Later on, Austria tried to open up in hopes of equalizing, but they couldn’t really create any serious danger. Their only result was the fact that they allowed underdog hero Hungary to hit them on a counter attack in the end of the game: Zoltán Stieber decided the match with a beautiful finish over the keeper’s head. Terrific skills, such an elegant move!
Underdog hero Hungary has not celebrated such a heroic victory in 44 years, that’s one of the most important gambling facts lately at Euro 2016. and they can enjoy every second of being up on the football map again. The players celebrated together with Hungarian football fans in the field, but that’s not even the best: Hungary’s capital Budapest went mad after the game finished: thousands of people went out to the streets, and celebrated as if they had won the entire tournaments. Even public transport had to cancel its buses and trams because singing and cheering football fans took over the main streets and meeting points in the city center.
Now underdog hero Hungary are looking forward to see how they can perform in their remaining games. Their next one will be on Saturday against Iceland who tied 1-1 versus Portugal. It will be another interesting games from both sides’ aspects. Even a draw would mean definite qualification to the top 16 for Hungary, but a win could give them even better odds for winning Group F. That would be something! I’m really curious what Cristiano Ronaldo and his team has to say about that one…
FC Barcelona played against Sevilla on Sunday night. The Spanish Cup final game was held in Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderón, stadium of Atlético de Madrid. Online gambling news predicted Barcelona to become Cope del Rey winners once again, however it was not at all too easy for them.
In fact, the game started like all finals should: 2 equal sides, fighting for eventual glory and success of winning the golden medal. Both teams created several chances, however they failed to score in every single situation they had.
But the game was about to become really one-sided just before the half time. It happened in the 36th minute. Sevilla created a clear cut chance and Gameiro was about to go one on one against ter Stegen. However, Mascherano did not let that happen: he grabbed Gamerio’s shirt, and to make sure he won’t be able to go on, he pulled him down to the ground with himself.
The Argentinian’s purpose was crystal clear and unquestionable, only one thing was going on in his mind: “I must stop him”. And so he did. Unfortunately for him and his team, he was not doing the right thing according to the official rule book of football, even though he was most probably doing the right thing according to his own heart and mind.
The referee didn’t show any mercy. He rewarded the central defender with an immediate red card, forcing Barca to play the remaining minutes of the game with only 10 men. The referee’s brave decision increased Sevilla’s chances to win, according to most live sports scores reporting sites.
Despite the fact that Sevilla were playing one man more than their rival in the Copa del Rey final, and that they were created lots of chances in those remaining 10 minutes of the first half, they couldn’t score any goals so the half time result remained 0-0.
The second half started the way it was expected: Luis Enrique made a substitute because of the red card. Ivan Rakitic left the field, Jeremy Mathieu took his place in hopes of strengthening the defensive line of the Blaugrana.
As expected, the Andalusian side controlled the midfield in the beginning of the second half. That was mostly made possibly thanks to Mascherano being sent off, obviously. The Sevillanos tried to put the ball into ter Stegen’s goal on several occasions. They even hit the post in the 51st minute, Banega’s shooting changed it’s place thanks to Piqué’s interception. Barca were lucky this time.
Just one minute passed by, but Barcelona received another set of horrible news: they led a counterattack in which Suarez put the high ball back to Messi. The world class forward wanted to head the ball but instead of the ball, he found a Sevilla defender’s head.
He was knocked out for a minute, but the even worse happened to his Uruguayan mate: Luis Suarez got injured because of his pass. He could come back and play for a few more minutes but then he couldn’t continue the game. Rafinha replaced Suarez in the 57th minute. Cameras caught Suarez crying for having to miss the remainings of the Spanish Cup final, being unable to help increase the number of Barca trophies this season.
Sevilla continued to control the classic derby, having created several chances mostly for Gameiro to score. However, they failed all of them, mostly because of the incredible performance shown by Gerard Piqué, who made many important tackles and interceptions when it was needed the most.
For the last 10 minutes of the game, the pace speeded up incredibly: A member of the Barca staff was sent off by the referee for saying something inappropriate in the 83rd minute after a controversial foul. 10 minutes later we could see another red card, but this time it was for the Andalusian side.
Neymar was about to go one on one against the keeper, Evar Banega didn’t let that happen: he tackled the Brazilian, without even trying to pretend he was going for the ball. Similar situation to Mascherano’s, the red card was merited in both cases. It was in the additional time of the first 90 minutes, which ended in 0-0. Extra Time.
At this point, the latest gambling news obviously believed that Barca trophies this season will be increased by 1 by the end of the 30 minutes extra time. They hold up against Sevilla by 0-man less, they are clear favourites on 10 v 10.
And no surprise has happened in the extra time. Barcelona, as expected, were playing as the dominant favourite of the Spanish Cup final. Sevilla managed to keep the goalless score for only 6 minutes in the extra time as in the 97th, Jordi Alba scored the Copa del Rey winning goal from Messi’s perfect assist.
The extra time was obviously dominated by Luis Enrique’s men. They created as many chances as Sevilla did; the only difference being that the Blaugrana were capable of putting the ball into the net. Twice, in fact: Messi assisted again in the 122th minute, Neymar scored this time and set the final result: 2-0 for Barcelona.
Barca trophies list this season has increased to 2 thanks to being Copa del Rey winner after triumphing La Liga as well. Barca win cup again, adding another one to their incredible amount of domestic triumphs. The Blaugrana have already been ahead of Real Madrid in regards of Copa del Rey wins by 28-19, however they still have a lots of La Liga titles to catch up with the Royal Club’s 32 golden medals.
Sevilla have been crowned as Kings of Europa League for the third time in a row upon defeating Liverpool in the final.As the latest sports scores news report, the Liverpool v Sevilla Europa League final has been played on Wednesday, 18 May, with the success of the Spanish side. However, before the game started, online sportsbooks all around the world believed that Jürgen Klopp’s men were favourites despite the terrific experience of Sevilla in Europa League tournaments.
It is worth mentioning that Sevilla have won the tournament twice in a row. Their battle against Liverpool was going to secure them their third consecutive Europa League title, something incredibly admirable. In fact, this was Sevilla’s 5th Europa League final in the club’s history. This was Sevilla’s 5th Europa League / UEFA Cup trophy.
The game didn’t start all too well for the Andalusians. Live sports results after the first few minutes were about to predict an easy win for Liverpool as the English side gave everything in its power to control the game. And they managed: Liverpool created lots of chances and were in total control of the game.
In fact, Liverpool took the lead early in the game thanks to a terrific shot from the penalty area, executed by Daniel Sturridge. This could have given much confidence for Liverpool players as in the past 10 years, it happened only once that the team who scored the first oal of the Europa League final, failed to win the trophy: that was last year, when Dnipro scored against Sevilla, but the Spaniards came back and won.
The same thing was about to happen but we didn’t even know about it yet. On the one hand, Sevilla were performing a horrible game in the first half. On the other hand, so was the referee. When the result was 1-0, Liverpool should have been given a penalty for Sevilla defender’s handball in the penalty area, with which he stopped a serious chance. The referee blew nothing and Liverpool’s other chances were all missed so the half time result was 1-0.
Whenever you play online sports betting, you know that the second half can easily overturn what a game look like. Liverpool were far better in the first half, but we couldn’t predict if Sevilla were going to change that or not. Whatever happens in the dressing rooms during the 15-minute break, it’s unknown to the public. However, it’s one of the most common gambling facts that you should definitely not bet on Europa League final and on any other football game during the break!
So the second half started. And it started pretty quickly and intensively: Sevilla needed only 17 seconds to equalize, Gameiro was the scorer, Mariano, the architect. The quick goal completely destroyed Klopp’s expectations of how the second half should go and Sevilla were in total control of the game from now on. Liverpool hardly even managed to have a chance to score.
The 64th minute was the time when Sevilla finally managed to score their second goal. Coke scored from Vitolo’s assist. Moreover, the Spanish side needed just 6 more minutes to decide the game as Coke scored again following an unforgivable mistake by Liverpool defense. 1-3, and only 20 minutes to go…
Sevilla were clear favourites to win Europa League at this point thanks to their terrific comeback. And so they did: they didn’t let Liverpool try to make a comeback. Sevilla controlled the game much more safely and more importantly, much more effectively than Liverpool did in the first half. But Europa League is finished, Sevilla won the trophy once again, for the third time in a row and for the fifth time in the club’s history, thanks to their terrific performance against Klopp’s men.
Thanks to this achievement, Sevilla are going to participate in the Champions League’s group stages. They will not be favourites to win that title. However, they can always go for reaching the third place in the group. That means qualification to Europa League’s first knock out round. Should they be third in their groups once again, and they will have another great opportunity to win the title for the fourth time in a row.
To see what a major success it is to defend the Europa League / UEFA Cup title, we must pay attention to the fact that only 2 teams managed to defend their titles: Real Madrid won it two consecutive years in 1985 and 1985, while Sevilla did it twice: They won in 2006 and 2007, and now it’s their on-going row as they won in 2014, 2015 and 2016. No other team managed to defeat their Europa League / UEFA Cup titles apart from the two Spanish sides.
La Liga winners in 2016 remain undecided as both Spanish giants seized victory. Atletico gave up on title-dreams.
The 37th round of La Liga had everything that football has to offer: easy wins for the title-favourites, exciting derby between a great team and another favourite and a surprising defeat for the third most likely La Liga Winners.
As usual in the last two rounds of La Liga, all 10 games are played at the same time in order to make things even more exciting as well as decrease the possibility of football championship cheats.
Before this round, the most popular to the question „Who is going to win La Liga?” was obviously FC Barcelona at all La Liga betting sites. The Blaugrana hosted city-rival Espanyol in the 37th round and it was expected to be a great battle between two ancient rivals.
However, Espanyol failed to stop Luiz Enrique’s men: the home-team easily trashed Espanyol by 5-0 at Camp Nou. Messi scored the first goal in the 8th minute and the half time result was 1-0. Espanyol gave up in the second half: Suarez scored a double in the 52nd and 61st minutes of the game, then Rafinha and Neymar also scored respectively in the 74th and 83rd minutes. We can see at sports scores news that the final result is 5-0 which means even better Barcelona odds to win La Liga.
The second favorite to win La Liga was Atletico de Madrid, according to most online gambling news in Spain. The capital-based team visited Valencia-based Levante. A team that has already relegated and are staying in the last position. It seemed to be the easiest possible game.
Especially that the Rojiblancos took the lead as early as the 2nd minute, thanks to a great goal by Torres. However, UD Levante managed to equalize in the 30th minute by Casadesus. In addition, they even managed to turn the game over as Rossi scored a winning goal in the 90th minute. Atletico seem to have a habit of letting go of titles in the last seconds of their important games… Because this defeat against Levante means their exit of the race for La Liga title.
The biggest derby and most difficult game out of the 3 title-candidates was unquestionably played by Real Madrid. The Royal Club hosted Valencia at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. They were in the worst position before the games began as they were 1 point behind both Barcelona and Atletico, and their only hope in the last 2 rounds was both teams to fail. Atletico did so…
Real Madrid took the lead in the 26th minute with Cristiano Ronaldo’s terrific shot just outside the penalty area. The capital-side created many chances and Diego Alves was the only person who kept up the Valencian hopes of stealing points from Zidane’s men and hence their wish to win the league.
However, not even Alves managed to save his team in the 42nd minute, when Benzema scored his team’s second goal. He was offside at one occasion just before the goal, so the referee made a mistake in allowing this goal. The half time result was 2-0, and in order to make the game exciting again, Rodrigo scored in the 55th minute, 2-1.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo did not wish to give up on Real Madrid chances to win La Liga: He scored only 4 minutes later. André Gomes, who came on as a substitute, scored another goal for Valencia to change the result to 3-2, however, Rodrigo took away his team’s chances when he said something wrong for which he was immediately sent off by Fernandez Borbalan.
The referee was main character once again when he disallowed Danilo’s goal, which was a result of the great architecting work of Alvaro Arbeloa, who came on as a substitute. The home-grown player of Real Madrid played his very last game at Santiago Bernabéu as he will retire at the end of the season.
As we can see, live sports results see Atlético de Madrid out of the race for La Liga, while Real Madrid took over their place in the second position. A great miracle should happen for Real Madrid to win La Liga as Barca need to lose points in Granada in the last round while the Galacticos still need to win their last game. Which, by the way, would be their 12th league win in a row.
A great football derby will be held in Gelsenkirchen this Sunday; however, Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips suggest a one-sided encounter.
After Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund are the second best football club according to all latest gambling news. They have been showing a series of great performances throughout this season; however, they had a tough challenge on Thursday in the Europa League. The third place is far away and if we are honest, we must admit the fact that they don’t really have a chance of being champions. Bayern Munich are not likely to give away their 5-point advantage just 6 games before the end.
If Dortmund players feel that, and they must feel that, considering the outcomes of the last few Bundesliga seasons, their attitude towards the game could drop significantly. Should that happen, with a little bit of concentration and a lot of fighting, the home side would stand a chance despite the fact that they are underdogs according to all Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips.
The Gelsenkirchen-based side has been highly under-performing during this season. They are standing in the 7th spot of the table, which means that their chance to participate in a continental tournament is at stake. By defeating their rival, they could already be in the 4th place with a bit of luck. That’s what they will be hoping to achieve by Sunday evening and that’s what they will be fighting for.
In addition, as German football enthusiasts must know, Gelsenkirchen and Dortmund are two cities pretty close to each other, which means there is a strong rivalry between Dortmund and Schalke. Should Dortmund players think this game is not too important, even if they do so only for a second, Huntelaar and his mates will strike back immediately. Not to mention the dreadful environment that will be created by the fanatic supporters of Die Königsblauen.
Sports scores news indicate that the home side will stand no chance against BVB. The odds for Thomas Tuchel’s men collecting the 3 points are at 1.73 (73/100) at Bet365 Sportsbook while those for Schalke’s triumph are at 4.50 (7/2). A tie would pay 4.00 (3/1) times the stake to online bettors.
As we can see, Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips suggest that wagering against Tuschel’s men equals throwing money out of your window. However, gambling predictions do not really matter at football derbies. It’s all decided on the field. We will see on Sunday afternoon which side will take the game more seriously, and which side will be able to collect the 3 points.

State Attorney General Luther Strange claimed DFS in Alabama illegal and sent letters for daily fantasy sports operators DraftKings and FanDuel demanding to stop their respective businesses in the Heart of Dixie.
After declaring DFS illegal in Alabama, AG Strange ordered DraftKings and FanDuel to stop their real money operation in the state by May 1. He argued that real money daily fantasy contests qualify as illegal gambling according to Alabama gambling laws.
Latest gambling news quoted Strange, saying, “As Attorney General, it is my duty to uphold Alabama law, including the laws against illegal gambling. Daily fantasy sports operators claim that they operate legally under Alabama law. However, paid daily fantasy sports contests are in fact illegal gambling under Alabama law.”
— Darren Heitner (@DarrenHeitner) April 6, 2016
According to Alabama gambling laws, illegal gambling also occurs when somebody makes a wager on a contest of chance, even if skill is involved. Strange argues that skill is needed to assemble a fantasy sport team indeed, but the bettors have no control over the performance of their fantasy players. Any unforeseen event like an injury can influence player performance, so these contests rely on chance and therefore was claimed DFS in Alabama illegal gambling.

The 48-year-old Australian actress and her husband made a confession their regular visits to Las Vegas and their wagering habits, latest gambling news report. So, you can say to yourself: “Nicole Kidman gambling? Well, I would just do the same.”
But the point is that she made a few cabbages throughout her career that also brought her an Academy Award for impersonating Virginia Woolf in the 2002 drama, The Hours. So, she has some coins to gamble away, but she is still very controlled when it comes to wagering. Actually the Nicole Kidman gambling habits could be a good pattern for anyone, who places a wager.
“She’s very good,” Urban commented the Nicole Kidman gambling news. “She’s disciplined.”
— Music-News.com (@MusicNewsWeb) April 4, 2016
Kidman herself admitted that she is far from being a pro, but it is obvious that she is not an addict either. She said, “Well, I’m not very good. I have a little amount of money, I go and bet that and then I’m done. I’m that kind of gambler, I’m not going to bet the house.”
Okay, if you are en expert of gambling facts you are obviously encouraged to play with higher wagers, but pay attention to what she said and listen to the advice: Never bet the house!
FC Barcelona hosted Real Madrid on Saturday night at Camp Nou. Preliminary El Clásico betting tips predicted easy win for the home team.
It’s not that El Clásico betting tips would be useless to read or anything like that, but we always must expect an El Clásico to offer something interesting. That is what happened this time as well: something completely unexpected happened, but let’s not get that far into the future. Let’s see what happened this weekend.
The most important thing that we must notice was how all gambling facts were in favour of betting on the Blaugrana: Luis Enrique’s men have not lost a single game out of their last 34 matches at Camp Nou, and counting all competitions, they have been undefeated for 39 games in a row.
On the other hand, there was the underachieving Real Madrid, with an inexperienced trainer, trying to pick up the trash that Rafa Benitez has left. In addition, Barca won in Madrid’s stadium by a humiliating 4-0, how could the Merengues stop them this time, when it seems even easier for the Catalan side?
If we had needed more assurance on how to bet on Barca v Real, checking out El Clásico betting tips certainly made sure we have no doubts about Barcelona winning by at least two goals. Online betting sites also showcased easy victory for Barca: the odds for their success were 1.57 (4/7) at Bet365, while those for Los Blancos were 5.50 (9/2).
And that’s exactly what we had expected before the game hasd started. In addition, that’s the exact same feeling we could have had after watching the first half of the game: Real Madrid slightly even tried to attack, they were there to defend. However, the Catalan side were also achieving under the expectations as they hardly ever had occasions to score a goal as well.
Luckily the second half did bring a much better entertainment for football fans. El Clásico betting tips seemed to become true as Gerard Piqué took the lead for the Blaugrana with a great header in the 56th minute. Only 6 minutes later, Real Madrid hit Barca on a perfect counter attack, of which Benzema scored a beautiful goal eventually. The Madrid managed to equalize and they had the chance to start building up their game again.
However, it didn’t go as easy as it sounds. The referee hasn’t been on top of the game all night, and he proved his skills against in the 80th minute, where he almost robbed Real Madrid the victory. Cristiano Ronaldo got the ball on the left flank, crosses in to the long side and Gareth Bale’s header finds its way into the goal. It was completely legal, yet the referee disallowed it for reasons unknown and impossible to understand.
Barcelona players looked incredibly exhausted by that time but still they seemed to be in favour of winning the game. Especially from the 83rd minute, when Sergio Ramos made another wrong tackle. It earned him his second one of the game, which he exchanged for a red card. 10-men Real Madrid against Barcelona at Camp Nou… protecting the draw would be perfectly enough for any other team…
…Any other team, but the Royal Club! Despite the bad form they have been playing this season, despite the robbed goal, despite Ramos’s red card they once again managed to overcome everything and win the game! It happened in the 85th minute when 3-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo turned over the score and won the game for his team.
Real Madrid defeated Barcelona in a game like this, despite all odds and by proving all preliminary El Clásico betting tips wrong. The next step is the Champions League, where Real Madrid will face Wolfsburg, while Barca’s rival are Atlético Madrid before the semi-finals. We will see how the defeat affected the Blaugrana, but it might give much more hope to the Rojiblancos.
