Memphis vs SMU

The resurgent SMU Mustangs hope to keep their ACC title-game hopes alive when they host the high-powered Memphis Tigers on Friday night at 9 p.m. ET. SMU can stay in first place in the West Division with an upset, while Memphis can keep its slim division hopes alive with a win. These are two of the top offensive units in the conference, so expect plenty of fireworks. The Tigers rank No. 6 nationally in scoring (44.6 points), while the Mustangs have posted 107 total points their last two games. The Tigers opened as 8.5-point favorites, but that number is down to 7.5 in the current Memphis vs. SMU odds. The over-under for total points scored has held steady at 73.5. Before you lock in your Memphis vs. SMU picks, check out what SportsLine expert Emory Hunt has to say.

Hunt is the founder and CEO of Football Gameplan, which has been supplying analysis of all levels of football since 2007. The former college football running back joined SportsLine in 2016 and has provided his followers with winning seasons ever since. Hunt is having another solid season for SportsLine members. What’s more, he has had a keen eye for the tendencies of AAC programs and boasts an impressive 9-4 record on picks involving Memphis or SMU over the past two seasons.

In Week 3, Hunt told SportsLine members that Memphis’ high-powered offense would overwhelm Georgia State and recommended backing the Tigers as four-touchdown favorites. The result: They rolled to a 59-22 victory, and anyone who followed Hunt’s advice picked up an easy winner.

Now, Hunt has studied Southern Methodist vs. Memphis from every possible angle and released a strong point-spread pick that’s only available at SportsLine.

Hunt knows the Tigers have had a down year by their recent standards, which includes at least eight wins each of the last four seasons and two campaigns with double-digit victories. However, they are just a couple plays away from having another standout season. Memphis blew a 13-point halftime lead in its 31-30 loss to undefeated Central Florida and also squandered a 12-point lead in the second half of a 22-21 loss at Navy.

Memphis is favored primarily because it could have an edge in the trenches. The Tigers have the fifth-ranked rushing attack in the country (270.2 yards per game) going against an SMU defense that allows 202.5 on the ground. The Mustangs’ defense also allows an average of 36.8 points per game.

But the Tigers’ strong form doesn’t guarantee a cover against a Southern Methodist team that has emerged as an unlikely contender under first-year coach Sonny Dykes.

The Mustangs lost their first three games against a tough nonconference slate by an average of 26 points, but they have won five of seven since. The signature win came in a 45-31 upset of front-runner Houston two weeks ago as two-touchdown home underdogs. They racked up 514 yards of total offense and forced two turnovers in dismantling the Cougars.

We can tell you Hunt is leaning toward the over, but his much stronger play is on the spread. Hunt has scoured every aspect of this matchup and unearthed the critical x-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. He’s only sharing at SportsLine.

Boise State vs New Mexico

Boise State needs just one more victory to set up a showdown against Utah State for the Mountain Division of the MWC in the final week of the season. Plus, a victory keeps Boise State in the top 25 in the Associated Press and College Football Playoff rankings. However, to get to that point they’ll have to get past New Mexico on the road on Friday night. That action will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network with kickoff coming at 9 p.m. ET. The Broncos are 20-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 62.5 in the latest Boise State vs. New Mexico odds. Before you make any Boise State vs. New Mexico picks and predictions, you’ll want to see what the advanced computer model at SportsLine has to say.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.

Boise State vs New Mexico Football Live Stream

The model was red-hot on top-rated picks last week. It nailed Ohio State(-3.5) over Michigan State in a game where the Buckeyes covered with plenty of room to spare in a 26-6 rout. Picks like that helped it go an impressive 23-10 overall on all top-rated plays, and anyone who followed it finished way, way up.

Now, the model has simulated every possible play for Boise State vs. New Mexico 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning under, but it has also locked in an against the spread pick that’s hitting nearly 60 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.

The model knows one big reason why the Broncos are favored by almost three touchdowns on Friday night is the versatility of their passing attack. Boise State has four wide receivers with at least 30 receptions and 400 yards receiving, while New Mexico doesn’t have the secondary depth to combat that level of skill on the outside.

In any given week, any Bronco receiver is a threat to take over a game. Additionally, New Mexico has given up 100 yards to two receivers in the same game on two occasions this season. And quarterback Brett Rypien has largely been lights-out. He has seven games with multiple touchdown passes and threw for five scores in a 399-yard gem against Air Force three weeks ago.

The Lobos were incredibly stingy in their last home game against San Diego State. They were 12-point underdogs in that contest and wound up covering in a 31-23 loss.

The Lobos actually led 23-14 in the fourth quarter before a late charge from the Aztecs. In that game, the Lobos were able to hang around because of their ability to create turnovers, which has been a strength of their defense all season. They’ve taken the ball away 21 times this season and if they can force Boise State into critical mistakes, they’ll have a strong chance to cover.

When it comes to covering, both teams are nearly equal. Boise State is 5-4 against the spread this season versus FBS teams, while New Mexico is 4-5.

So, which side of Boise State vs. New Mexico hits against the spread in nearly 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of Boise State vs. New Mexico you need to jump on, all from the model that has returned more than $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors, and find out.

Chile vs Costa Rica

Chile vs Costa Rica: Chile play their first home game for over a year with Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez surely hoping desperately that he can build up some much-needed confidence.

Chile vs Costa Rica

The 29-year-old has endured a wretched run of form since his swap move from Arsenal in January, scoring only four goals for the Red Devils in 29 appearances and demoted to the bench for most of this season.

Sanchez got a rare 90 minutes under his belt when Chile won 1-0 against Mexico in October and match practice, plus a goal or two, is exactly what he needs against Costa Rica and then Honduras on Tuesday to try and revive his flagging club career.

It was 78th-minute substitute Nicolas Castillo who scored the only goal in the victory over the Mexicans and that was the only one Chile have notched since they, despite being back-to-back Copa America champions, had to sit out and watch the World Cup in the summer.

Chile vs Costa Rica Football Free Streaming

Costa Rica did go to Russia, but their only joy was a 2-2 draw with Switzerland in their last group match and since then they have lost four out of four and conceded 11 goals in doing so.

With neither team firing on all cylinders at present, we can see goals being at something of a premium here and we like the idea of combining a tight contest with a clean sheet being kept for our bet – and Sanchez for one will hope that it’s Chile achieving a shutout.

A young Mexico national team welcomes a Chile squad without its biggest stars on Tuesday in an international friendly in Queretaro. El Tri is coming off a 3-2 friendly win over Costa Rica on Thursday, winning on a Raul Jimenez penalty kick.

Mexico has more quality but there are some veterans for Chile that want to show they still have it like Fabian Orellana. Expect few goals but for Mexico to squeak out a victory. Mexico 2, Chile 1.

Argentina vs Mexico

Argentina will clash against Mexico in the first of two consecutive friendlies between the two nations at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes.

Argentina, sans Lionel Messi, will be taking on a Mexico side led by caretaker manager Ricardo Ferretti in Cordoba, in their penultimate fixture of the year 2018.

Since the disappointment of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Argentina have been a team in transition, under caretaker manager Lionel Scaloni. Key figures like Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Gonzalo Higuain continue to be absent from the squad, as Scaloni looks to usher in a new era for La Albiceleste, ahead of next summer’s Copa America.

Argentina have lost just one of their four games since their Round of 16 defeat to France in Russia (W2, D1) – a narrow 1-0 defeat to Brazil during the last international break. However, their two victories during this period came against Guatemala and Iraq. And Scaloni will be hoping that his team steps up against a tougher opposition and picks up a win on Friday night.

Just like their opponents, Mexico too are a team in flux. Following the departure of Juan Carlos Osorio from the managerial position after the World Cup, El Tri are being led by interim boss Ricardo Ferretti. Under the caretaker manager, Mexico too have cast aside a number of established players like Andres Guardado, Javier Hernandez, Hector Moreno, in order to give younger prospects a go.

Since their defeat to Brazil in Russia, Mexico have lost three of their four matches, winning just one time. Their latest fixture ended in a 1-0 defeat against another South American heavyweights Chile in October. And Ferretti will be aiming to put that result behind and pick up a victory when he takes his team south of the border this week.

Tottenham Hotspur star Erik Lamela returned to the squad for the upcoming friendlies against Mexico along with defender Emanuel Mammana. Rodrigo Battaglia has been ruled out with a knee injury, while Nicolas Otamendi and Eduardo Salvio have also been confirmed as unavailable after having been part of the initial squad named by Scaloni.

Promising talent Matias Zaracho and Fiorentina defender German Pezzella are other casualties for the South American giants. There have been first call-ups for Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and Velez midfielder Gaston Gimenez as well.

30-year-old goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin is in line to start between the sticks ahead of seasoned campaigner Sergio Romero. At right-back Renzo Saravia should earn his third international cap, while Nicolas Tagliafico will slot in at left-back. Spurs’ young defender Juan Foyth could be set for his debut for the Albiceleste alongside Ramiro Funes Mori in defence.

Angel Correa has been in good nick for Atletico Madrid and should get the nod on the right side of the midfield against Mexico. Sporting Lisbon’s Marcos Acuna will look to provide the width on the opposite flank for the Argentines, with Giovani Lo Celso and Leandro Paredes holding the fort in the middle of the park.

Juventus’ superstar Paulo Dybala is in line to start in attack, alongside up and coming striker Lautaro Martinez, meaning Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi stays on the bench.

Probable Starting XI (4-4-2): Marchesin; Saravia, Foyth, Funes Mori, Tagliafico; Correa, Paredes, Lo Celso, Acuna; Dybala, Martinez; 

Ferretti has gone for a balance of youth and experience in his squad for the trip to Argentina. Star attacker Hirving Lozano has had to withdraw from the squad with a knee problem, while Chicharito and Carlos Vela have been omitted from the squad along with a number of other national team veterans. 20-year-old Jesus Angelo has also withdrawn from the team due to an injury.

Ferretti has dallied with a few formations since taking over, but is likely to go into the game with a 4-2-3-1 setup. 28-year-old Hugo Gonzalez should start over Guillermo Ochoa and Jesus Corona in goal. Tigres’ defender Luis Rodriguez is likely to start at right-back, while Jesus Gallardo should get the nod on the left side. Nestor Araujo and Diego Reyes should line up at the centre.

Jesus Duenaz is likely to take up one of the two pivot positions in the middle of the park ahead of Javier Guemez. He will be in charge of shielding his back four, while his partner, 23-year-old Erick Gutierrez will take up the playmaking duties in the middle of the park.

20-year-old Roberto Alvarado has been in promising form for his club Cruz Azul and could start out on the right flank, while Javier Aquino is in line to feature from the start on the left wing. Victor Guzman should get the nod over Marco Fabian in the No.10 role, while Wolves’ centre-forward Raul Jimenez is set to lead the line.

Hooker vs Saucedo

Hooker vs Saucedo Preview and PredictionWith two of the four Super Lightweight belts tied up in the World Boxing Super Series, the two remaining world champions have a far narrower resource of viable world-class opposition.

The hope would be that while the WBA and IBF titles are unified in the final of the WBSS, the WBO and WBC titles also end up belonging to one fighter, setting a potential post-WBSS unification clash.

But while Jose Ramirez awaits his next challenge of the WBC strap, Maurice Hooker must retain his WBO portion of the Super Lightweight pie against an unbeaten, and highly rated young challenger.

Mexican born Alex Saucedo is 24-years old, and makes his maiden world title challenge in front of his adopted home faithful in Oklahoma City.

Saucedo 28-0(18KO’s) has been fed the right diet up until this point, all of which culminated in a streak of knockout wins over the last 12 months. Gustavo David Vittori lasted just 3 rounds, while Abner Lopez and Leonardo Zappavigna were both stopped in the 7th.

Hooker vs Saucedo Full Fight Free Streaming

Saucedo has a well-sized frame for a 140lbs fighter, but even his 5’10” height is no match to the naturally gifted Hooker. The champion is registered at 5’11”, but he stands more like 6’1” with an astonishing 80” reach.

However the Dallas born and bred fighter has not always been blessed with keeping his opponents at such a distance.

In fact his long arms may in fact be more of a hindrance, as it forces Hooker 24-0-3(16KO’s) to throw more punches than he otherwise would like to, and it makes him a sucker for counter punches, as opponents know that once Hooker has let his hands go, they can burst inside with the knowledge that Hooker’s guard won’t be up in time to protect his chin.

That is a large reason for the three draws on his record, albeit the first two were down in part to a lack in experience, while the most recent, against Darleys Perez, was a case of getting a helping hand from two judges.

Victory over unbeaten Terry Flanagan for the vacant title, last time out, was the best win of ‘Mighty Mo’s’ career thus far, and signs that he was beginning to put valuable lessons to good practice in the ring.

Although the cynic in us all would allude to Flanagan moving up from Lightweight, and his lack of power being the reason that when the Mancunian got on the inside, he was unable to take advantage like other fights could.

The split decision win may have also been blighted slightly when Flanagan fought gamely, only to be outclassed over 12 rounds by Regis Prograis in the opening round of the WBSS.

For Saucedo, the route to victory will be in perfectly balancing patience and desperation in the boxing ring. Finding himself in too much of a rush could result in Hooker allowing him to waste much of his energy early on, or even giving Hooker a great opportunity to score a damaging knockout.

On the other hand, a patient approach could allow Hooker to establish a rhythm, and once in front, Hooker’s long arms make it tricky to win enough rounds convincingly to sway the judges at the end.

Hooker was never fazed to head into Flanagan’s backyard to take the title, and will not be overwhelmed on Friday night when he stands up to Saucedo’s Oklahoma/Mexican fan base.

Both these men come in to the ring in the form of their careers thus far, but while one may have hit the peak of his powers, the other is still improving. That is why the younger Saucedo will need the judges to favour his aggressive style in a tantalisingly close contest.

The feeling is that Hooker has been overlooked by many coming into his first world title defence, and there is a significant chance that the champion will spoil the challenger’s crowing night and prove many doubters wrong.

Saucedo will race to a good start, using up that nervous energy in the opening exchanges.

As the challenger waits for his second wind, Hooker will close the gap as he establishes the jab, while also connecting with a host of eye-watering uppercuts to the lowered head of Saucedo.

Once Saucedo bites down on his gum shield, the action will really begin to hot up.

Hooker’s corner will try their best to get their man back on the outside, but with so many opportunities to fire away on his opponent, it will prove an impossible task to convince Hooker to box smart in those latter stages.

Down the stretch, Hooker will land the better quality while Saucedo lands the higher quantity. It will be down to the three judges to decide which they prefer.

At the end of 12 rounds at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, the crowd will celebrate the result like they do a Russell Westbrook fast break dunk, as their man, Alex Saucedo is crowned the new WBO Super Lightweight champion of the world, by way of split decision.

Brazil vs Uruguay

The Selecao are ready to put their incredible record under Tite on the line at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in friendly action

Two of the most successful nations in footballing history will go head to head in friendly action in London on Friday when Brazil face Uruguay.

This will be the 76th time in history that the Selecao have faced their South American counterparts, boasting 35 victories and having suffered a mere 20 defeats.

However, Uruguay claimed victory in the nations’ biggest meeting, the 1954 World Cup final, which left an indelible scar upon football in Brazil and, at least until the 7-1 World Cup semi-final loss to Germany in 2014, was regarded as the most chastening day in the country’s sporting history.

Position Brazil squad
Goalkeepers Alisson, Brazao, Ederson
Defenders Danilo, Miranda, Marquinhos, Filipe Luis, Alex Sandro, Dede, Fabinho, Pablo
Midfielders Arthur, Allan, Renato Augusto, Rafinha, Paulinho, Willian
Forwards Douglas Costa, Gabriel Jesus, Neymar, Firmino, Richarlison

Brazil coach Tite has made numerous changes to his side since the World Cup, handing out as many as nine debuts in the four friendlies that have been played since their exit in Russia at the quarter-final stage against Belgium.

Napoli midfielder Allan is the most high-profile of the new arrivals in the squad for these fixtures, with Cruzeiro goalkeeper Gabriel Brazao the other uncapped presence.

Marcelo and Philippe Coutinho have dropped out due to injury, while Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has also been forced to withdraw.

Possible Brazil starting XI: Alisson, Danilo, Marquinhos, Miranda, Filipe Luis; Walace, Arthur, Renato Augusto; Douglas Costa, Neymar, Firmino.

Position Uruguay squad
Goalkeepers Silva, Campana
Defenders Caceres, Laxalt, Lemos, Velazquez, Cabaco, Mendez, M. Suarez
Midfielders Lodeiro, Sanchez, Vecino, De Arrascaeta, Bentancur, Torreira, Valverde
Forwards Cavani, L. Suarez, Rodriguez, Gomez, Pereiro

Uruguay approach this fixture missing a number of experienced players, including captain Diego Godin. Fellow defenders Jose Gimenez, Sebastian Coates and Marcelo Saracchi are also injured, as is Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

The defensive line is set to be extremely inexperienced. Aside from Martin Caceres, who has 84 international appearances, the combined total of caps for goalkeepers and defenders is 27 shared among eight players.

The uncapped Erick Cabaco will not play against Brazil but may be fit to face France.

Cristhian Stuani, who has been in prolific form with Girona in Spain, is their other casualty.

Possible Uruguay starting XI: Campana; M. Suarez, Caceres, Velazquez, Laxalt; Bentancur, Torreira, Vecino, De Arrascaeta; Suarez, Cavani.

Brazil are priced at 8/15 favourites by Bet365. The draw is available at 3/1 while Uruguay are rated a 5/1 shot.

The 2019 Copa America is now less than a year away and preparations from Brazil and Uruguay are well under way.

Selecao boss Tite is approaching the task by assessing as many options open to him as possible. He has used the post-World Cup friendlies to test a number of untried players, and yet despite the inexperienced nature of some of his teams, success has inevitably followed.

Under his guidance, Brazil have been incredibly successful. He has overseen 28 matches, of which 24 have ended in victory and only two in defeat. One of those came in the World Cup quarter-finals against Belgium, where a late Renato Augusto strike was mere consolation in a 2-1 defeat.

But in Russia, the Selecao had only a half-fit Neymar. When they take to the field on home soil in next summer’s Copa America, they hope to have their star man back firing again as they seek to win an eighth South American crown.

Uruguay, meanwhile, continue to be led by the redoubtable Oscar Tabarez.

The veteran coach has led the nation to sixth in the FIFA Ranking, which given they boast a population of around 3.5 million is a quite staggering achievement.

He is not generally noted for his willingness to experiment, favouring a pragmatic approach to the game, and as such has tended to be reliant on a number of stalwart players over the years.

The likes of Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez, Fernando Muslera and Diego Godin have, therefore, all won over 100 caps for their nation.

For these fixtures against Brazil and France, though, the hand of the manager has been forced. Injuries, particularly those in the defence, have stripped him of vital players and will force him to experiment.

Uruguay will be taken out of their comfort zone for these matches – but it may do them long-term good with the Copa America in mind.

France vs Netherlands

France vs Netherlands Preview: Dutch redemption in the Nations League

Click Here To Watch Now

France vs Netherlands

The first-ever UEFA Nations League draws to a close over this next week with unusual, high praise for the ingenuity of UEFA in the creation of a tournament which has proven itself as an exciting addition to the international calendar.

The excitement and stakes will rise even higher in the final two matches in Group 1 of League A in the Nations League as the Netherlands have two massive games to potentially hand themselves top spot in the group while France are in pole position as they head to Rotterdam.

It isn’t in doubt that the Netherlands, at one stage, were one of the best national teams on the planet. From the years of Total Football, Johann Cruyff and their European Championship victory in 1988 to the Golden Generations of the early 2000’s which featured the likes of Patrick Kluivert and Dennis Bergkamp and years later, the appearance in the 2014 World Cup Final, the Dutch know a thing or two about being a top-level international side.

It is fair to say then, that the last few years have been some of the worst in their history with the national team falling to their worst ever FIFA ranking of 36. An unusual feeling for the Oranje and their colourful, passionate fans. Since that final appearance in Brazil, the Dutch have declined massively and failed to qualify for the last two major international tournaments.

France vs Netherlands Nations League Football 

They were, unthinkably, left trailing behind Czech Republic, Turkeyand Iceland in Euro 2016 qualifying before finishing behind Sweden and France in their quest for Russia in 2018. To illustrate just how much of a decline this is – the Dutch didn’t lose a single game in qualifying campaigns for the 2010 (they were 100%) and 2014 World Cup.

Now though, there is hope rising from the depths of despair. There is a feel-good factor once more. This is a team that has lost only three of their last seventeen international fixtures, twice to France and once to England and also a team that has a real chance of making it back to a major tournament via the Nations League. Two wins in their final two games is the objective to reach the play-offs and while those fixtures are against two of the best national sides in the world, the belief is back.

The Dutch, of course, have been here before. After the Total Football era, they missed three successive tournaments before going on to win the European Championship so while the Netherlands know failure, they know a thing or two about redemption too.

The French, much like their opponents on Saturday evening, have always been an elite national side and while the Dutch are slowly awakening from their slumber, the current World Champions are riding the crest of a wave that has seen them reach the European Championship final in their homeland in 2016 and obtain the biggest prize of them all, the World Cup, in Russia in 2018.

Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kante, Ousmane Dembele and more. This is a team full of household names and stars of world football. The strength in depth displayed across the squad is frightening and there are all the tools in place for this side to go on and dominate international football for years to come.

The next logical step in their quest for domination then is to claim the European Championships in 2020. To obtain that, the French have to top this group and then win the play-offs next June which would also bag them another trophy, the inaugural Nations League trophy, along the way.

After an opening day draw away in Germany followed by home wins over that same nation and also against the Dutch, the French are sitting pretty at the top. They are four points clear and need only a point on their trip to Rotterdam to secure top spot. If they get beaten though, they must hope that the Netherlands don’t also turn over Germany in Gelsenkirchen three days later or else they will finish second in the group.

There is also plenty of reason for France to be wary. For all of their their quality, they were almost held in Saint-Denis in September after Ryan Babel equalized late on before Olivier Giroud rescued the three points in a game that was far from comfortable.

The warning signs are there for France but they have only lost one of their last twenty-three games and are more than capable of leaving with the necessary point to secure top spot in the group.

The Netherlands come into this game with little injury problems although will be missing regular squad players Daryl Janmaat, Eljero Elia and Davy Propper who were called up for matches in September and October. Promising striker Justin Kluivert also misses out on the chance to win his third cap.

Jasper Cillessen, Daley Blind, Georgino Wijnaldum and Ryan Babel are the most experienced in their respective positions in the squad and are all available. Usual names such as Memphis Depay, Kevin Strootman and Virgil van Dijk will all be in contention to start in Rotterdam.

Donny van de Beek and Frenkie de Jong have impressed for Ajaxthis season as they look to win their sixth and fourth caps respectively. Denzel Dumfries of PSV has also had a good season thus far and will be looking to add to his two caps.

Javairo Dilrosun of Bundesliga side Hertha BSC and AZ Alkmaargoalkeeper Marco Bizot are the only uncapped players in the side but are both unlikely to feature in either match.

France will be without one of their biggest names in Paul Pogba on Saturday evening. The enigmatic midfielder misses out alongside his Manchester United team-mate Anthony Martial, a player who has only just worked his way back into the national team set-up. Alexandre Lacazette has found a scoring touch at Arsenal but he is also unavailable.

The other superstars are ready to go though, with Mbappe the one to watch, as usual. The live-wire is truly one of the best players in the world at the tender age of 19, he has a World Cup to his name, ten goals in 26 caps and anything good from France will likely come from the PSG forward.

Giroud, Blaise Matuidi, Raphael Varane and Hugo Lloris are the most experienced in their positions in the squad although Dembele, Kante, Benjamin Pavard and a few others have already become integral members of the squad now and will be expected to be in the future.

Tanguy Ndombele is shining at Lyon this season and may add to his two caps at some stage on Saturday. Nabil Fekir is recently back from injury while Florian Thauvin is another exciting player that struggles to get as much game time simply due to the sheer strength of the French attack.

Uncapped Ferland Mendy features in this squad after the withdrawal of his namesake Benjamin Mendy and will do well to see any game time at all. Alassane Plea has been in tremendous form for Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany this season and could earn a first cap but he faces a struggle to break into a stacked forward line.

Netherlands and France have met 27 previous times ahead of their match on Saturday with the Dutch winning ten of their encounters compared to the thirteen times that France have come away victorious. Four have ended in stalemate.

Interestingly, Netherlands have scored more goals (54) than France (47) but have less victories than their opponents.

These two have been familiar foes lately having played each other in three of the last four years. The Dutch were beaten soundly in both encounters in qualification for the 2018 World Cup while friendly matches in 2014 and 2016 ended in victory for Les Bleus on both occasions.

Saturday will mark the first meeting between these two sides in Rotterdam since a goalless draw at the de Kuip in 2004.

A similar scoreline will be sufficient for the French but for Netherlands that will see an end to their chances of progression from the group into the play-offs. Even worse, a defeat would leave them at risk of relegation from the league.

A win though, as we know, is the first step ahead of what would then be a massive match with Germany on Tuesday. If this scenario, winning two matches against two of the top nations in international football, was presented to the Netherlands a couple of years ago, there would’ve been more than a few that would have laughed off the Dutch having any chance.

Now though, in 2018, there are more than a few that have every belief the Netherlands can win them both and continue their resurgence. Redemption is possible.

There are few who will question Rodgers’ place among the top five quarterbacks in the league, but the NFL star will face his toughest test of the year against the vaunted secondary of Seattle.

Despite dealing with a calf injury, Rodgers helped Green Bay secure a first-round bye in Week 17 and knocked off the red-hot Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round. Unfortunately for the Packers QB, the Seahawks proved in their 36-16 Week 1 victory that they have what it takes to shut him down.

Even hobbled against Dallas, he went 24-of-35 for 316 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. With a passer rating of 125.4, Rodgers proved he can perform in an elite fashion against even the most difficult situations.

When asked about his injury and how it changes his approach by 540 ESPN (h/t Tom Pelissero of the USA Today, Rodgers said:

Nothing changed in the approach. There was some apprehension on getting out of the pocket and doing some of those things that stayed with me the entire game.

But I was, for whatever reason, able to move to my left a little bit easier hopping on my right (foot) as I threw the ball to Richard (Rodgers) for the (go-ahead) touchdown and not having to put a lot of pressure on the left foot. … It was about being smart and playing within my restrictions.

The tenacity Rodgers has shown will be put to the test against the hard-hitting Seattle defense. Through the regular season, the Seahawks managed to finish first against the pass (allowed 185.6 yards per game) and third against the run (allowing 81.5 yards per game.)

With bona fide stars such as Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and others protecting the secondary, Rodgers will have to be at his best. There will be no room for errors on Sunday, especially with the ball hawks on the Seattle defense.

Rodgers will also need a little help from his friends. Between wide receivers Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, as well as running back Eddie Lacy taking the pressure off the pass attack, the Packers will need every player on the offensive side of the ball to bring their A-game.

The Green Bay defense will also have a major say in whether the team advances to the Super Bowl, but most fans will have their eyes glued to the matchup between Rodgers and the Seahawks secondary.

Despite dealing with a calf injury, Rodgers helped Green Bay secure a first-round bye in Week 17 and knocked off the red-hot Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round. Unfortunately for the Packers QB, the Seahawks proved in their 36-16 Week 1 victory that they have what it takes to shut him down.

Even hobbled against Dallas, he went 24-of-35 for 316 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. With a passer rating of 125.4, Rodgers proved he can perform in an elite fashion against even the most difficult situations.
