World Cup Playoffs, leg 2, 14 Nov05

Turkey v Switzerland

Swiss looks like a decent team, they displayed total teamwork to survive the French and Irish assault,
recent Turkish results suggest the Turks have lost their special touch when they finished 3rd the last world cup,
looks like a Under 2,2½ game for me,
either Turks win by that odd goal or it wil draw 1-1, either way I see Swiss making it to Germany next june.

Czechs giving 1,1½ to Norway,
Norway surprised when they were dogs (They beat Brazil in world cup before!) and usually failed the task when the odds were quite even, so I fancy the handicap with Norway.

Australia v Uruguay
Hmm..the home side usually scores first and win when these 2 old rivals meet on the same playoff route again.
Not much to read into that game which Uruguay beat Argentina away, since the Argies had already qualified then, so I fancy Australia to beat Uruguay, 1-0 looks likely, it really might go into extra time. Aussies are desperate to go to Germany next June (trying to join the AFC, and qualify via the asia route, which will get wider since FIFA is somewhat trying to expand its Asia market)

Bahrain v Tobago & Trinadad
hmm..it could still go either way, I secretly hope Bahrain go to Germany next June, they will get whipped there. Very Happy . I watched them quite a few times. Interesting note: around 800k population of Bahrain, T&T around 1 million.

Slovakia v Spain
Spain, deadly in qualfiers and friendlies but big time fades and underachievers in the Euro and WorldCup. Spain is value to win the 2nd leg, they are worth the risk again. Slovakia doesnt have the technical capabilities to stop the spaniards running riot again.

Hope u find the above useful,

Re: World Cup Playoffs, leg 2, 14 Nov05

Go the Socceroos !!!

not touching any of them in terms of my money, but i do like Bahrain and Turks. The Spanish are already thru to the finals (5-1 demolition first leg), so i guess they'll just sit back and defend... mayb 2-0 to Slovakia... Under 2.5 is the play if i do bet on this one tho...

Bahrain with home and away goal advantage, i think they'll go thru... despite whatever result in the 2nd leg...

BOL to all those capping and playing on Wednesday !

Uruguay didn't beat Argentina away. That match was in Montevideo.
