My UEFA Europa League Quarter Finals Predictions

Today is Thursday and that means we have Europa League quarter-finals, where 8 teams fight for s spot in the semifinals, and here are my Europa League quarter-finals predictions.

My UEFA Europa League Quarter Finals Predictions

Slavia Praha Vs Arsenal

Arsenal had a bad night last Thursday, let be honest, Arsenal played very bad but to be fair they could easily win that game.

Slavia Praha was delighted to get an equalizer at the last minute of the game, getting a 1-1 draw away from home in any European competition is a huge result to any team.

My prediction

Slavia Praha has a very good home record and Arsenal have a very good away record, so this will cancel out. I am predicting a draw here. I think it will end 2-2, Arsenal equalizing in the last minutes and going through away goal rule.

Villareal Vs Dinamo Zagreb

Villareal won 1-0 away, this was a great result for them, the home advantage is going to be huge later today. I fancy Villareal to advance in this game.

My prediction

Unai Emery is a master of the Europa League. I am sure that he will guide his team to the semi-finals without any issue. For me, this game will end up 2-1, Villareal.

Manchester United Vs Granada

Manchester United won 2-0 away from home, for me, Granada is the weakest team left in the competition and Manchester United is too strong for them.

My Prediction

Manchester United almost wrapped second place in the premier league. I think they will put a very strong team to play against Granada and they will win, my prediction is 3-0 Manchester United.

Roma vs Ajax

I like the way Roma plays. i have a feeling that they might reach to the final of this competition, they won the first leg 2-1 away from home. I think they will win again.

My Prediction

As I said, Roma is a good team, and Ajax is not playing good football as they used to do two years ago, I think Roma will win the tie, I am going for 2-1, Roma.

Final Words

That is it, that is my Europa league predictions, what are your predictions? let me know in the comment section below.

My UEFA Champions League Predictions

This is my first post in this blog, so I decided to try to predict which team will win the UEFA champions league edition 2020-2021.

At the time of writing this article two matches of the quarter-finals have been played, PSG advance to the semi-final after beating Bayern Munich in away goals after a 3-3 draw during the two legs.

Chelsea also advanced to the semifinals after beating Porto 2-1 over two legs.

So here are my predictions for the rest of the matches.

My UEFA Champions League Prediction

This is my first post in this blog, so I decided to try to predict which team will win the UEFA champions league edition 2020-2021.

Liverpool Vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid goes to Anfield after winning 3-1 in the first game played in Alfred Stefano stadium, so on paper Real Madrid is the favorite to go through.

Despite Real Madrid being favorite I can see Liverpool fighting for their lives and adding to the fact that Real had to play another difficult game on the weekend against Barcelona, this will cause fatigue in their legs and Liverpool can take advantage of it.

The problem with Liverpool is that they have a shake defense, so despite seeing Liverpool scoring two goals but I do not think they will keep a clean sheet, so I am predicting this game to be 2-1, Liverpool.

With this score, Real Madrid will advance to the semifinal and face Chelsea.

Borussia Dortmund Vs Manchester City

Most pundit and betting companies are giving City an advantage in this game, City won the first round in Manchester 2-1, and in my opinion, it is not a huge task to turn around, I have seen teams turn this scoreline many times.

The issue with Manchester City is that they have a tendency to shoot themselves on the foot when it comes to the final stages of this competition and Dortmund is 5th in the Bundesliga, there is a reason for that, they are bad.

I have a sneaky feeling that Dortmund will show up in this game and give City some real trouble and eventually win the tie.

I am going for 3-1 Dortmund and Dortmund will face PSG in the semifinals.

These are my UEFA champions league predictions, what are your predictions? Let me know in the comment section below.


Hello world!

Hello World!

This is my very first post on this blog. If you made your way to this post, first of all, I want to say thank you, you have no idea how it means to me.

Hello world!

I started this blog with one thing in mind, to share with other football fans my non-professional opinions about soccer.

Why did I decide to call it soccer gems?

I decided to call it soccer gems because where I came from we call football ‘SOKA‘ that is soccer, I added gems, I thought it will make a blog name sound clever, don’t judge me.

What you can expect from this blog?

In this blog, I will be covering previews, match reviews, technical analysis, training methods, history of soccer, national teams, and some legends of the game.

The main reason to be here is to have a little bit of fun without insulting or belittling anyone. I am a firm believer that treating another human being with respect should be a number one rule for all of us.

If you have anything that you want to share with me or do you feel like you need to contact me about anything please do it by using this link.

So that is it on my side, I wanted to say Hello World, and welcome to my humble blog.
