Moreover, the way it has proved its legacy is quite promising for the rest of the ongoing season. Actually, both its supporters and sports betting fans witnessed a stunning match on Sunday. The now Michel-coached OM showed off its core potential by screening its two (1-0) losses against Caen and Reims. Admittedly, Spain-born coach Michel has successfully found the right potion the team has ever needed to get up from its bed. The new coach has chosen a totally new playing strategy than that of “El Loco”.

Marseille recently distinguished itself from other squads with its three-and-one strategy. Michel has chosen to get rid of the one-on-one tactics Marseille used to work on under the coaching of Marcelo Bielsa. Additionally, Michel included in the starting lineup some new faces including Rémy Cabella and Javier Manquillo. The Sunday’s game also was marked by the return of Lassana Diarra among the playing squad. The new tactics really paid off as OM set the whole Vélodrome alight by crushing Troyes 6-0 in the 3rd week of the Ligue 1. Abdelaziz Barrada opened the scoring in the 19th minute. Early after the break (47th), the show continued with Lassana Diarra scoring another goal, then followed by that of Michy Batshuayi (56th, 90th), Lucas Ocampos (64th) and Romain Alessandrini (88th).

Barça delivered a smashing performance – UEFA Super Cup

It was a hard-fought match that football and sports betting fans witnessed in the FC Barcelona Vs Sevilla clash. The UEFA Super Cup game saw two Spain-based football clubs battling it out with reviving energy and efforts. Nine goals were scored in the game. Plus, it would take an overtime to play down to a winner. It was the Messi-lead FC Barcelona who won over FC Sevilla 5-4. Yet, Sevilla opened the scoring in the 3rd minute thanks to a free kick by Banega.

Then Barcelona would speed up their paces with Messi on the lead. He scored two goals(7th, 16th). Rafinha scored one more before the break (44th) which owed to Suarez’s perfect pass. The latter hit the fourth goal of FC Barcelona some minutes after the break (52th). In the second half, the scene set a super motivated yet dominant Sevilla. Reyes bridged the score gap in the 57th while Vitolo and Gameiro added one more thanks to a penalty kick (71st). Sevilla successfully tied the game with Konoplyanka scoring their fourth goal in the 81st minute. The suspense was at a peak. Fortunately with the team’s excellent offensive play and a great set-piece by Lionel Messi, Pedro drew Barça’s way right to the win.


France’s Les Bleus crushed Serbia 73-63 for a tie – Euro Basket 2015

France national basketball team has just played its fourth warm-up game for the upcoming Euro Basket 2015. France and Serbia now have one win and one defeat each. While “Les Bleus” sealed a win at Nancy last week (78-65), the Serbian team recently turned their game a notch at a 22,000-filled Kombank Arena (73-63). Thus, bettors are puzzled about the performance of Tony Parker and Co. With regards to game prognosis, France lost two of its four warm-up games, which appeared exactly the opposite of what its fans expected three days earlier at Villeurbanne when the team beat Russia 93-55.

Seemingly, France lacked conviction in offense and had too much turnovers (24). In the center, it was dominated by their rivals. Vincent Collet’s men were tied facing the Serbs. Speaking of Tony Parker, the NBA veteran wrapped up the game with 8 points while Nicolas Batum failed to do more but scoring 3 points (1/6). Les Bleus also lacked commitment and individual performance. The Serbs successfully broke down the team’s defensive wall; it was only Evan Fournier who stood out from the squad with 3/3 in 3-point shots. By all accounts, we can say that France national basketball team is avoiding injury prior to the great day. This Friday Vincent Collet’s men will be in Nantes for another warm-up game against Ukraine.
