Monaco, who had drawn their two previous games, were reduced to 10 men in the 86th minute when Stevan Jovetic picked up a red card for a dangerous tackle, seven minutes before Dolberg netted the winner.

RETRO CORNER A very happy 48th birthday to Darren Anderton. I know odds are really not that great for the over 2.5 goals bet in this one but it is a pretty easy bet to be winning with Zizkov fighting for the 3rd place at this moment, losing an important game last round with no less than 5-0 away from home at Hradec Kralove but before that they won 4-0 away at Varnsdorf and also won 2-1 at home with Listen, and earlier this season at Trinec they scored 2 goals but ended up losing the encounter with 4-2 in the end.

I was immediately very upset that Sterling didn't get the red card and then that situation happened again and in one minute I was laughing and the next minute fuming," he said.

Liverpool is an unbelievable place to be and we’re a very, very good football team and hopefully we can keep improving.

It would be hard to catalogue all the failings throughout the season without crashing this website, but from Craig Levein to Austin MacPhee to Jon Daly, from Donis Avdijaj to Loic Damour, from Marcel Langer to Glenn Whelan and onwards to the appointment of Daniel Stendel, it's been one huge misstep after another. As Ramsey shifted from 4-2-4 to his 'wingless wonders' in the second phase, he played a loose 4-1-3-2 with Nobby Stiles shutting down opposing attacking threat, Alan Ball industrially working the right flank and Bobby Charlton given license to burst forward with the ball with outstanding results.

Cova de Piedade will play against Chavez in front of their own fans today. The visitors Chaves have a strong chance to get up to 3 points here in this match, they play better and have 22 points in their name. They also have won 7, drawn 1 and lost 6, which is not bad. The home team is in bad shape right now, and they managed 8 points with a record of 2-2-10 and is desperate for points, and it is clear that it will be difficult to score today, and everything but the victory for the guest is likely.

Central Coast Mariners have shown some signs of life in recent weeks, winning two of their last five and keeping themselves just above Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar at the foot of the table.

Everton's decision to sack manager Marco Silva will not only be the catalyst for further turbulence at Goodison Park - it represents a heavy blow to the personal credibility of billionaire owner Farhad Moshiri.

Roma are in a similar position on the road, with under 2.5 goals landing in 67% of their trips in Serie A this term. The visitors come into this one with under 2.5 goals landing in eight of their last 10 away matches, while seven of Verona’s last eight have seen under three goals.

Nkwazi will host Lusaka Dynamos for this fixture of the league. I expect another one tough match for both sides. Both teams are not very good teams in this season. Both teams are currently bottom of the table. Perhaps, the visitors have better team than their opponent. Lusaka Dynamos have a more effective attack than their opponent. However, they are not convincing team. They have only 1 victory in their last 5 matches. Also, we have Nkwazi who's is vulnerable team in recent times. They have a poor results. In last game Nkwazi lost 1-0 against strong Red Arrows. In any case, I expect, the hosts will try to fighting for a positive result. My pick - Nkwazi to win.

The Millers have seen plenty of high scoring clashes in this competition, with 10 of their last 11 FA Cup matches finishing with over 2.5 goals scored. With Hull coring 10 times across the last three meetings between the pair, we expect the Tigers to get a couple of goals here. Given how the Millers have a habit of conceding twice in this competition, we a 2-1 victory for the visitors in this one. Wolfsburg will host Werder Bremen this Sunday in German Bundesliga action.
