Neither Tottenham or Norwich had the season start they have hoped for. With only one point for each team after the two first game of the season, Tottenham and Norwich find themselves in the lower half of the table, Tottenham on the 14th place and Norwich on the 17th place. This game will be played on the White Hart Lane Stadium, saturday 1st September 2012. This will be the second consecutive game played by Tottenham on their home ground and they hope to get the first victory of the season. Norwich will have a hard time to get even a single point in London, but they could profit of the weak form Tottenham is showing in this season start, and try to get at least one point.
Both teams were defeated in the first round of the season, and managed to get a point in the second round. As they play at home, Tottenham expects to get the first win of the season and three points that will get them away from the lower half of the table. They are usually involved in the abttle for the title and the European Cups, and this place that they are on at the moment is far from what they have set as an objective for this season. Tottenham needs these three points and surely they will start the game playing offensive since the start. Norwich will come to defend, and with a bit of luck, even to get e point from this game. Still, Tottenham are favorites, the value difference is consistent and they have the highest chances to win this game.

It will be a last game in a season where the two cup winners Atletico Madrid and Chelsea managed to achieve a great performance for them, winning the champions League, and the Europa league respectively. BOth team would want to add another trophy to their stand, and especially Atletico Madrid that will be playing in thie game the second time in three years, after winninh the trophy in 2010, winning against Inter Milano, 2-0.
Chelsea got the tickets for this game after winning the Champions League for the first time in the last season, Roberto di Matteo`s team defeating Bayern Munich on penalties. Didier Drogba scored the 1-1 goal that took the game into extra-time before Chelsea got a 4-3 shoot-out victory, making them the fist club from London to win the Champions League. Atletico Madrid won the Europa League in the last season`s final, played in bucharest. Falcao opened the way for this win with two goals in the first half, and Diego sealed the result five minutes before the end of the game.
With this game played as a final in a one round game, it is hard to pick a favorite. Both teams started the season well, being undefeated in the firt games of the season, and Chelsea getting the maximum points after 3 games played. Just considering the value of the players and the teams, we could say that Chelsea are slightly favorites to win this final, but Atletico Madrid is a strong team that is very organised and they could pose serious problems aven to the top teams in Europe. IT will be a very disputed game, with a lot of goal opportunities from both teams, and the team that will manage to play better in defense will probably win this trophy.

The Champions League tournament hosts it`s final round of preliminary games before the group stage. Ten double leg encounters were programed for this phase, with the first round of hames already played last weeek. Among those double leg encounters we could fint the duel between Scottish Champions, celtic and the Champions of Sweden, Helsinborg IF. The winner of this double encounter will go in the Champions League group stage, and the loosing team will play in the Europa League group stage.
The first leg played in Sweden brought a very good result for Celtic. A goal in each half, scored by kris Commons and Giorgos Samaras rewarded Celtic for a very well played game with a very good advantage before the second leg in Glasgow. Celtic opened the score in the second minute of the game, and despite the fact that Helsinborg had the better of the game thereafter, it was Samaras to score again for Celtic in the 75`th minute for a two goal advantage.
The second leg looks like a simple formality for Celtic. They will play at home, they have a 2-0 advantage and they only neeed to keep this advatage to advance in the Champions League group stage. It will be their first presence after four seasons and they don`t even consider the fact that they could lose the qualification after winning 2-0 in Sweden. Helsinborg IF will come to Scotland to try to play their game, but it is very unelikely that they will manage to recover that 0-2 deficit. Celtic are favorites to win this double leg as well and we believe they will manage to win this second leg as well and get in into the 2012-2013 Champions League group stage.
