Ali-Preview: VfL Wolfsburg vs. Bayern Munich

It should be with great happiness that I begin this preview: the Bundesliga is back on Friday night with a clash between the top two teams in the league and football really is back to its full schedule. Unfortunately Friday night will probably be one of the most sombre occasions in recent footballing memory after Junior […]

Ali-Preview: NFL Championship Games

After the relative success of last weekend’s predictions, I intend to prove that it was not beginners luck and that I do know what I’m talking about by previewing the Championship games in the NFL this weekend. The Packers and the Seahawks meet in the north east to decide the NFC in a game which […]

Ali-Preview: NFL Playoff Preview

With no German football until the end of the month I had a quick go at previewing the sport I have been getting into since August: American Football. These are all highly risky suggestions from a ‘rookie’ NFL supporter but they are based on what I think I have picked up. Have a read and […]

Ali-Preview: Bundesliga MD 17: Super Schnell Predictions

I was unaware of the midweek round of matches until I switched on the Bayern Munich match last night (which was worth watching by the way- bit late to tell you now, but check out the highlights. SC Freiburg goalkeeper Roman Burki had a superb game) so apologies for that. What with it being end […]

Ali-Preview: Bundesliga MD 15

With the biggest game of the weekend undoubtedly being Champions League hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen’s home tie against Europa League contenders Borussia Mönchengladbach on Sunday, it is left to a huge Bavarian derby to maintain the interest of the masses on Saturday afternoon. With the other three Champions League contenders playing at 2.30 it could be […]

Ali-Preview: 1899 Hoffenheim vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

So, after a long wait with no laptop (yeah go on, make the porn joke- everyone else has) I am finally back with my Friday night preview of Hoffenheim’s home clash against Frankfurt. After a promising start to the season Hoffenheim have suffered an alarming recent dip in form that has seen them win only […]

Ali-Preview: Hertha Berlin vs. Hannover 96

With over a quarter of the season now having been played, some teams are still yet to hit their stride in the Bundesliga. Last season’s surprise package, Hertha Berlin, have started slowly and will want to improve on their recent record in front of their passionate fans in the Olympiastadion this evening. Hannover 96 have […]

Ali-Preview: Schalke 04 vs. FC Augsburg

Tonight’s Bundesliga match looks set to be an intriguing clash between two sides experiencing turbulent seasons so far. Schalke 04 are onto their second manager of the season after Jens Keller was dismissed during the international break, with Roberto di Matteo coming in and tightening their defence up. FC Augsburg have had an all-or-nothing season, […]

Ali-Preview: AS Roma vs Bayern Munich

Firstly an apology; I got very caught up in uni work at the end of last week and could not get my predictions done for the weekend’s Bundesliga fixtures. Never fear, they will be back next weekend! As a little treat to make up for the lack of weekend work (well I think it is […]

Ali-nalysis: Premier League Abroad

A lot has been made of the re-emergence of future plans to stage one game for every Premier League team abroad. Whilst there has been obvious outcry at the thought of every team playing abroad, I can see the advantages. I would not recommend it- bear that in mind as you read this- but here […]

Ali-Preview: Bundesliga MD 7

Borussia Dortmund host Hamburger SV in the biggest game on Saturday afternoon in the Bundesliga. The two teams have really struggled so far this season, with Dortmund lying in an uncharacteristic twelfth place whilst opponents Hamburg sit bottom. In Bremen, two sides hoping to avoid the drop at the end of the season come face […]

Ali Preview: Hertha Berlin vs. VfB Stuttgart

This clash sees two of the slower starters in this year’s Bundesliga face up in the capital, with Stuttgart hoping to continue their recently improved form. Hertha have failed to move up through the gears themselves and will want to put that right against a side currently just one goal worse off in the rankings. […]
