4May 2013



Betfair Live Video brings you high drama this Sunday, a vital match from the Eredevisie followed by a potential title party for Galatasaray. Reuben Thomas has the low down...


Waalwijk vs Vitesse

Sunday 11:30


There's Eredevisie for elevenses on Sunday as Waalwijk battle to stave off relegation whilst Vitesse hunt a Champions League spot.


With Ajax just needing a single point from their last two games to claim the title the championship looks certain to be heading to Amsterdam. European qualification and relegation from the Eredevisie however are still yet to be decided.


Waalwijk are hanging perilously close to the relegation playoffs spots, with a one point advantage over Roda they are still far from safe. They have bobbed in and out of the top flight over the last few years and will be desperate to stay up and improve their standing next season.


After an impressive start to the campaign their bubble burst and they have slid down the table, they are currently without a win in four. Their main problem has been a lack of goals with only Frenchman Teddy Chevalier a regular scorer. Matches involving Waalwijk average the least goals in the division.


This is the last home game of the season for Waalwijk and they need to get a result, they have the smallest average attendance in the league but have actually been relatively successful at home. They've won more than they've lost at the Mandemakers Stadium and have picked up seven precious points from their last three games there.


This Sunday they'll fight hard but with so many injuries in both midfield and up front coach Erwin Koeman will have to be innovative to put out a competitive team.


Vittesse are on their way to Europe, secure in fourth they're a sure thing for a Europa league spot but they still have an outside chance at earning a place in the Champions league. They've managed to stay up with the pace of the big three and are now only two points below both PSV and Feyenoord.


Their trio of loanees from Chelseas have been a huge help, the most effective being Tomas Kalas who has been Vitesse's best defender this season, he should recover from a heel injury in time to play on Sunday. Classy midfielder Marko Van Ginkel continues his good work and he has been talking to the press this week about the importance of winning their last two games just in case others drop points.


Obviously the main attraction for this game will be Wilfired Bony, he now has 37 goals in all competitions, he's proved totally untameable for defenders this season. With his eyes set on the Premiership next season expect a transfer struggle in the summer for his signature.


With Waalwijk's injury problems and Vitesse's strong away record the visitors are worthy favourites at 2.2 but in their last home game of the season Wallwijk will be fighting for their lives and should get at least a point.

Galatasaray vs Sivasspor

Sunday 18:00


Sunday night and it's back to Istanbul for a match that could end in Galatasaray celebrating retaining their crown. They host Sivasspor at the Turk Telekom Arena and a win would give them an unassailable lead.


After winning the league by nine points last year it looks like Gala are going to do it again, with three games to go and a seven point advantage it would take a complete capitulation to throw it away from here.


Gala have been solid all season and the big name captures of Sneijder and Drogba seemed to give them the boost they needed in January. They have only lost one game in the league since their arrival and are currently on a six game winning streak. Their great city rivals Fenerbahce have also been impressive this year but just couldn't quite maintain enough consistency and will most likely finish runners up again.


After 32 goals last year Burak Yilmaz's goal scoring form has dropped off a little but he will still finish 'Gol Krali' and despite the additions of Bulut and Drogba he remains the main man. In midfield Inan and Melo have proved too powerful for most teams and it is there that most games have been won for Gala.


Attempting to block their path to glory this Sunday are mid table Sivasspor, a team with the second worst away record in the league and little to play for. At first glance the task for Gala appears pretty straight forward but Sivasspor tend to raise their game for their hardest opponents, they have already claimed the scalps of both Fenerbache and Besiktas in Istanbul this season.


After finishing seventh last year Sivasspor would have wanted to have developed further by this point but their awful away record has hampered them. Their attention has been on the cup recently and they contest a semi final with Trabzonspor next Wednesday. Nigerian striker Michael Eneramo who bagged a hat-trick last week is their main threat and will try and ruin the party on Sunday.


With Gala looking for their 45th title and Sivasspor keeping one eye on the cup semi it looks all set for a noisy end to Sunday, Istanbul will be awash with yellow and red.

Back Galatasaray to win 3-0 @ 8.4
