Belfast, North Ireland based club Linfield won their 51st Irish Premiership title by a massive 14-point margin last season with 85 points followed by Portadown at 71.Linfield FC dominated again as they took the league title by beating the Crusaders FC in the Irish Cup final to complete a sixth double in seven years.

B36 Torshavn Preview

Founded in 1936 in the Faroe Island and based in it’s capital with the same name, B36 Torshavn has several achievements but pale in comparison against Linfield. Their recent triumphs include winning the Faroe Islands Premier League in 2011, The Antlantic Cup in 2006, and the Faroe Island Super Cup in 2006.

Linfield FC vs B36 Torshavn Predictions: F91 Dudelange 2-0

Both teams demonstrate talent and power in their own right. It is difficult to predict the winner of the first leg for the records show an equality in strength. We will just have to wait and see on 3 July 2012.

F91 Dudelange Preview

Founded in 1991 and based in Dudelange, Luxemburg, from the clubs Alliance Dudelange, StadeDudelange, and US Dudelange. It took a while to turn this outfit into a title challenging team and would take Alliance's place in the Division of Honour in the 1991–92 season. They won tenNational Division titles 999–00, 2000–01, 2001–02, 2004–05, 2005–06, 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008–09, 2010–11, 2011-12, four of which being consecutive.

San Marino’s SP Tre Penne was founded in 1956 in the city of San Marino. re Penne currently plays in Girone B of Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio. Currently, the team has achieved a fairly good record of 15 wins, 7 losses, and 3 draws. They will enter the UEFA Champions League against F91 Dudelange on the 3rd of July.

F91 Dudelange vs Tre Penne Predictions: F91 Dudelange 2-0

Although the Sammarinese have a much more experienced squad in Tre Penne, Luxemburg’s Dudelange seem to be the best bet in this 2 legged match-up. F91 Dudelange has shown a lot of promise at the onset of this year’s football season and will most likely continue to do so.

The Impact is 4-2-2 at home, scoring 15 goals, allowing 11 goals. Their form is 2-0-4, scoring 11 goals, allowing 14 goals. Overall, Montreal Impact is in a downtrend status after winning 1.00 points per game compared to their normal 1.37 average. They are currently 15th in the Major League Soccer and we are expecting them to score 1.65 goals in this game. Their current ELO rating is 1369.6 compared to 1436.0 10 matches ago. They are 5-3 over/under 2.5 goals at home and 5-5 in their last 10 homegames.


Sporting KC Preview


Sporting KC is 3-2-3 away, scoring 9 goals, allowing 11 goals. Their form is 2-2-2, scoring 7 goals, allowing 9 goals. Overall, Sporting KC is in a downtrend status after winning 1.33 points per game compared to their normal 1.87 average.

Montreal Impact vs Sporting KC Predictions: Montreal over Kansas 2-1


In their last meeting on May 5,2012 Kansas suffered a 2-0 loss at home to the impact. I see this being the same type of outcome with the Impact taking this. Montreal will be well rested and also I expect them to take control on the offense.

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions


San Jose Earthquakes Preview


SJ is currently on the top of the Western Conference list with eleven wins, three loses and three draws tallying a total of 36 points, four points ahead of Western second placers, Real Salt Lake. Winning the previous three matches in a row including a 4-3 victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Earthquakes are on fire and are gearing up for their next up-coming match against Portland who are currently placed at number 8 in the Western Conference. The Earthquakes’ game against Los Angeles is now considered one of the greatest in the history of the MLS. MLS Golden Boot leader Chris Wondolowski, whose back heel goal gave the Quakes the lead during that game is one of the team’s driving players.


Portland Timbers Preview


Ranked at number 8 within the Western Conference and having 20 lesser points than the San Jose Earthquakes who, by the way, are currently the number 1 team in the West, Portland (W-4,L-7,T-4) definitely has a tough challenge to take on this Tuesday when they go against the San Jose Earthquakes(W-11,L-3,T-3). One advantage however falls to the Timbers’ side, the game will be played at the Jeld-Wen Field, Portland’s home turf.


San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions: 3-0


The Earthquakes have a powerful attack as was proven during their last match against the Galaxy. Unless the Portland Timbers adjust their defenses and strengthen their offense, the team does not stand a chance against the red-hot Earthquakes, home turf or not.

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire Predictions


Houston Dynamo Preview


After a 2-1 victory against the Philadelphia Union on the 30th of June, Houston Dynamo is back for another match-up, this time against the Chicago Fire. The last match that the Dynamos had against Chicago was in April 15 of 2012 where the game ended in a draw of 1-1. Currently, Houston ranks at number five in the Eastern Conference with 6 wins 5 loses and 5 draws with a total of 23 points. Oddly enough they rank just below Chicago Fire who has two more winning games ahead of Union but with the same amount of defeats. The venue will be Houston’s home turf and the team has not lost a game at home this season.


Chicago Fire Preview


Chicago Fire has been untouchable for the previous three games in a row including one with the Eastern Conference top team, New York Red Bulls where they easily achieved a 3-1 victory. During their last match-up, Chicagomanaged a 1-0 road victory at Sporting Kansas City on last Friday when Marco Pappa grabbed the game's only goal, and Sean Johnson made several outstanding saves to hold the lead.


Houston Dynamo vs Chicago Fire Predictions: Draw 1-1


As mentioned above, both teams have met five times in the past Chicago has won once, Houston once, and the rest are draws. This keeps both teams at equal pace. Although Chicago is one rank higher, only four points and two games are the differential. This match-up seems even in the eyes of many.

Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: FC Dallas vs Toronto FC Predictions



FC Dallas Preview


FCD is 3-4-2 at home, scoring 8 goals, allowing 9 goals. Their form is 0-2-4, scoring 6 goals, allowing 10 goals. Overall, FC Dallas (3-3-2) opened a stretch of six games in 21 days with Saturday's scoreless draw against D.C. United. Kevin Hartman finished with three saves - including two at close range against Charlie Davies - to help Dallas push its unbeaten streak to three (2-0-1).


Toronto FC Preview


The Reds are currently in 3rd place in the Eastern conference 1-1-5 away, scoring 11 goals, allowing 16 goals. Their form is 2-3-1, scoring 10 goals, allowing 8 goals. Overall, Toronto FC is in a uptrend status after winning 1.50 points per game compared to their normal 0.80 average. They are currently 19th in the Major League Soccer and we are expecting them to score 1.48 goals in this game. Their current ELO rating is 1296.4 compared to 1386.7 10 matches ago. They are 6-1 over/under 2.5 goals away and 8-2 in their last 10 away games.


FC Dallas vs Toronto FC Predictions: 1-1 Draw


The Canadians will be hosting FCD in which we can expect both teams being happy with walking away with a point. I expect this to be a close encounter between the 2 teams.
