Bayer Leverkusen - Freiburg
Betting option: Asian Handicap
Pick: Bayer Leverkusen
West Ham United have confirmed that they will bring their first team squad to the Goldsands Stadium for Stephen Purches’ testimonial match this weekend.
West Ham United: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Collins, Reid, Rat, Noble, Collison, Noble, Vaz Te, Jarvis, Maiga
Subs: Adrian, O’Brien, Tomkins, Potts, Taylor, Diarra, Diame, Engelaar, J.Cole, McCallum, Morrison, Whitehead, Lletget
Purches is a Hammers Academy graduate who has served Bournemouth for ten years across two spells. The 33-year-old spent two years as a professional at the Boleyn Ground before moving on to Bournemouth, and has also turned out for Leyton Orient in a career that has spanned across all three Football League divisions.
The Hammers have enjoyed a free-scoring start to pre-season, defeating Cork City 6-2 in their first match last Sunday, before goals from Ravel Morrison, Ricardo Vaz Te and Kevin Nolan handed them a 3-0 win at Conference South side Boreham Wood on Wednesday.
Bournemouth have already played three pre-season matches, losing 2-0 at Swiss side FC Zurich in their opener, before defeating local non-league sides Wimborne Town 2-1 and Christchurch 7-1.
Team news-wise, the Hammers will once again be without Andy Carroll (heel) and George McCartney (knee) as the pair continue to receive treatment on their injuries at the start of pre-season.
Sam Allardyce will name a similar squad to that which has appeared at Cork City and Boreham Wood, with his players continuing to build their fitness ahead of the new campaign. A 24-man squad will appear at the Goldsands Stadium, including one trialist in Netherlands international midfielder Orlando Engelaar.
The 33-year-old has been capped 14 times during a career that has seen him represent NAC Breda, Racing Genk, Twente, Schalke 04 and PSV.
Former Bournemouth favourites Darren Anderton and Steve Fletcher will also play a part in today’s game, as will Stephen Purches’ brother John, who helped Bournemouth to gain promotion to League One in 2003.
Atletico will rest all main players for Copa Libertadores finale
Just two points between them but hosts playing just league games while Shakhtar have important Euro games. They will have this game on 13th july and CL game with BATE on 16th. There is lot time to flyght on that two hostings so they wanna put game day before because of important Champions League qualification game but hosts refuse that so Shakhtar will come with reserves, first 11 will not come even travel here..
Shakhtar” against “Kairat” expose reserve
A week kicks off the most prestigious club tournament in the Old World – Champions League. The honor of our country will be the second year in a row to defend Karaganda “Shakhtar”. Rival miners in the strongest scattered on the second stage of BATE Borisov, last year played in the Champions League group stage.
It’s not scary orange and black, and vice versa. Apparently so had to happen. Football God gives children a chance to shine in matches against this opponent. How is the preparation for the game champion in Borisov, the first question the head coach of the miners Victor Kumykova
+0,5 Depor Cali @ 1,82 / x2 @ 1,9 1-1
Last round, Santa fe has this game between two important copa libertadores games (semi finals) and this game not important for them because they are 1st on table in group phase of playoffs so they will urest main players. Small bet because ganme for nothing and Game on high Bogota altitude.
1 Santa Fe 5 3 1 1 6 4 +2 10 LWWWD
2 Millonarios 5 2 1 2 7 6 +1 7 WDLLW
3 Deportivo Cali 5 1 3 1 5 5 +0 6 LDWDD
4 Once Caldas 5 1 1 3 6 9 -3 4 WLLDL
Independiente Santa Fe: FINALIST!
In advance, for lack of a date to close the quadrangular semifinals in Group A, Santa Fe self employed qualified for the Grand Final of the League Postobón 2013 – I.
Despite the 2-1 defeat away to Millonarios condition at Estadio El Campin, the Red Bogotano moved to a new end thanks to the 10 points he had already achieved in previous games of the group and the invisible point obtained by be absolute leader of Phase All vs. All, and Once Caldas defeat led him to Deportivo Cali in the Pascual Guerrero in the game that closed the day of Group A.
With the defeat at home to Deportivo Cali fell 6 points and Once Caldas reached 4, unattainable difference in the two cases in the absence of a single date. Millonarios FC with his victory reached 7 points, three behind Independiente Santa Fe, however, and although it is possible for the Blues reach 10 points in the last date and the Lion to stay at 10 in case of losing to Deportivo Cali in El Campin, the place of leader can not take it away from its rival, then define the invisible point in our favor.
Široki – Branitelj -1eh Široki @ 2,1 2-0
Friendly game, memorial tournament Gojko Šušak where will compete 4 Croatian clubs Široki Brijeg, GOŠK, Branitelj (all from BIH) and Hrvatski Dragovoljac (from Croatia). Široki will host this memorial once again (this is 14th memorial tournament).
About Široki. They finished 6th last season but won cup and will play Europa league. Strong at home (11-3-1). As for the gaming staff team from Pecara completed the arrival of Zoran Plazonić instead Tomislav Mazalović and connecting representatives Maric and Špikića while Branimir Odak went on loan (to their todays opponent, Branitelj). Club left and goalkeeper Robert Mikulic will most likely continue his career in Capljina.
Another novelty is that these days on probation in the German club Dynamo Dresden defender Slavko Brekalo (which Široki had on loan in new 1st league club Vitez). But about a possible transfer to Dynamo Brekalo still knows nothing.
About Branitelj dont know much. They are from second league and (finished 3rd last season) and very strong at home (12-1-1) but also very weak away (1-4-9).
I doubt other bookies will put hendicep but home win is good for double.
USA – Guatemala -1,5ah Usa @ 1,94 6-0
Last preparation game for USA (and for Guatemala this is just friendly) before Gold Cup (few days later).
On the other side Guatemala will be without lot important players which played recently, there are 13 players out from last game with Argentina (0-4) tree weeks ago. There are just two players playing out of country, Jerez (Colombia, Alianza Petrolera) and Padilla (Costa Rica, Puntarenas).

After preparation in Slovenia (where šplayed great, won strong Olimpia 4-0, weaker Triglav 4-0 and strong Ludogorec 3-1. That showes their strenght (and they could won all games much more diffference but iot’s normal, manny new players). As i spoke before, manny players come last season but also manny good players come this summer: Ivan Boras, Damir Zlomislić, Mateo Bertoša, Nikola Pokrivač, Mate Maleš i Ivan Tomečak, Leskovic, Kvrzic, Anas Sharbini, Josip Tadić and young talent Ajayi – from their Nigerian affiliation academy..Club left Gabric (unimportant) and Kreilach (regular but new arivals come and can replace him). Every game they are playing better and better, now no so manny rotations as on start preparation (season for 10 days, also soon first European game)and now they come back in Croatia to finish pre season.
On the other side Slovenian team Šampion Celje comes in croata but that is not Celje from first league (which was cup finalist and will play Europa league), this one Celje is weak 2nd league club and i dont see chance for them in this game
RNK Split (Cro) – Haladas (Hun)
Split has friendly with Sepahan and today this game, cioach told he will have two different teams. Also big talent Rebic, good striker on youth championship (but good attack Belle, Vojnovic and new player, expirienced Mate Bilic from Sporting Gijon). Lot rotations so i will not touch it but maybe here can be goals
