UEFA Europa League Wolves vs Olympiacos Preview/Prediction
From the look of things, Wolverhampton Wanderers is ready to take on about any team at the moment. Although it may seem that they didn't perform so well in the Premier League that recently just ended, when placed side by side with Olympiacos, we can be sure they'll pull something off. Olympiakos, on the other hand, is going to pose a considerable threat in this game. Judging from their record in their league, they performed not too poorly but somehow better than wolves in the Premier League. Is Wolves going to make this game end in another draw like the last one? Will Olympiacos leave such a deciding game to chance? We'll find out soon. Head to Head These two have met once this year in the first leg of this round in the competition and the match was a really tough duel. The game ended in a 1 - 1 draw with Olympiacos as the home team. To further show the toughness of the game, an Olympiacos player was handed a red card in March to march out of the match. We hope for that same energy and level of competitiveness but with a fairer play. Previous Games Records As I mentioned earlier, these two teams haven't performed up to the expectations of fans and viewers in their earlier games; however, we cannot say that they have performed poorly. In the Premier League, Wolves tried where best to exert their strength and position in the league. Competing with teams, they are much stronger both attack and defense wise. Since June, they managed to win five games when the Premier League resumed; they lost three and drew 1 putting them at the 7th position on the premier league table. Olympiacos has had a better record, and this should be able to send a warning to the Wolves side that they're going to be meeting one of the season's contenders in this match. They had won a total of 9 games since June when the lease resumed. They lost only one and drew only one. Most of their wins were with high margins, proving that they're capable of scoring as many goals as possible, and there's no doubt as to whether we'll be able to see that in tomorrow's game. Teams These teams are strong and well-matched. They both have players that are skilled and enthusiastic in their own rights. However, when we compare each side based on experience and the kinds of teams they have come against, Wolves would rank higher. The premier league is one of the toughest leagues in the current soccer scene, and Wolves has been faced with much stricter challenges, so we may not be able to compare them based on their previous game records. Prediction/Verdict Wolves would be the home team; we can't take anything away from the fact that they'll have a higher advantage in the match, mainly because they managed to hold Olympiacos to a draw in the last game. The odds would be put at 1.8 for wolves to win, 2.0 for Olympiacos to win, and 1.5 for a draw, which is very much likely. --- Join CoinGyan Telegram Channel to Get Free Trading Signals, Crypto Guides and Much More

Best club of every country in Europe (part 1)
So here is the list of every country's Best clubs. Some of this might be controversial. I have selected clubs that have better performance at both domestic and European levels. The condition for selection is that they must be currently playing in the top-flight league. The teams are majorly accounted for European success but must have equally good performance in the domestic league. Albania KF Tirana Founded: 1920 Klubi i Futbollit Tirana is an Albanian football club based in the country's capital city, Tirana. It is the most successful club in Albania with winning Albanian Superliga a record 27 times, Albanian cup 16 times, and Albanian Supercup 11 times achieving domestic double 3 times. They are also the most successful time in Albania on the European stage, having progressed from the first rounds on 11 occasions since making their European debut in the 1965–66 European Cup. They reached Round of 16 in European Competitions four times, three such in the European Cup alone in the 1980s. The club also holds the record of being the highest-ever ranking Albanian club according to IFFHS, having been ranked 31st in the world in 1987. They were the first-ever winners of Albanian Superliga back in 1930 and since have been dominating the Albanian league. The only strong oppositions are Dinamo Tirana and FK Partizani. They have participated in all the top tier national championships since their formation except for the year 2016-2017 when they finished 9th place and were relegated to the second tier. But the aced their way back to the top league the immediate year and have finished in 2nd place in the 2018-2019 season. Although they have been dominating the Superliga, they haven't won the title since the 08-09 season. This season was to be their redemption as they were on the top of the table with 9 points clear. Andorra FC Santa Coloma Founded: 1986 FC Santa Coloma is the most successful team with thirteen titles. It is also the most successful team in the Copa Constitució, winning it ten times. FC Santa Coloma has two unique achievements for an Andorran team in European competitions, never repeated so far by any Andorran team: it is the only team from Andorra to win a match in any European competition and the only team that did not concede a goal in a match in a European competition. This club has been playing European football for the past 18 years competing in either Champions League or Europa League, missing out only on 3 occasions(2003, 2005, 2006). Azerbaijan Qarabag FK Founded: 1951 as Mahsul and then in 1987 as Qarabag. Qarabağ Futbol Klubu is the most successful Club in Azerbaijan in terms of European competition. It is still a top team in Azerbaijan League only second to Neftchi Baku with 7 titles as compared to their 8. Pre-USSR disintegration, Qarabag won 2 Azerbaijan SSR league and 1 Azerbaijan SSR Cup. In Recent Times they have won 7 League titles, 6 Cups, and 1 Supercup. Qarabağ is one of the two teams in Azerbaijan, along with Neftchi Baku which has participated in all Azerbaijan Premier League championships so far. Qarabağ became the second Azerbaijani team to advance to the group stage of a European competition, making its first of three consecutive seasons in the UEFA Europa League group stages. It is also the first Azerbaijani team to advance to the group stage of the higher UEFA Champions League. Austria SK Rapid Wein Founded: 1899 Sportklub Rapid Wien is the most successful club in Austria. They have won a record 32 Austrian Championships, 14 Austrian cups being the second only to be beaten by their neighbors, FK Austria Wein but maintaining a 100% win rate in the finals by winning each of the 14 games. They also have won the German Championship(now renamed as Bundesliga) and DFB Pokal cup and they are the only Austrian club to win this. Rapid reached its first European final in 1985, losing 3–1 in the Cup Winners' Cup Final to Everton in Rotterdam. Eleven years later, in the same tournament's final in Brussels, Rapid lost 1–0 to Paris Saint-Germain. Rapid's best performance in the European Cup came in the 1960–61 season when they reached the semi-final before being eliminated by eventual winners Benfica, 4–1 on aggregate. In recent years, Rapid hasn't won any cups, their last piece of silverware was from 2008-2009 when they were crowned as the champions of Austria. They were the first-ever winners of the Austrian Championship back in 1911. 2015 mark the last season when they were in the top 2. Armenia FC Pyunik Founded: 1992 Football Club Pyunik Yerevan is the most successful club in Armenia with winning 14 League titles and a total of 31 domestic titles, by far the most by any team in Armenia.

Sporting merit' will decide qualifiers for next season's Champions League, confirms UEFA
European football's governing body met on Thursday to discuss 2020-21 continental club competitions, and says teams will be chosen on league form. UEFA has stated that qualification for its club competitions next season must be done on "sporting merit", while reaffirming its belief that the 2019-20 season should be played to a complete finish where possible. The football season has been postponed across the majority of Europe due to the coronavirus outbreak, with the Champions League and Europa League on hold and all major domestic leagues being suspended, or in some cases, abandoned. The Belgian Pro League was the first to be called off early, while Scottish lower league clubs recently voted to end their seasons and the Dutch Eredivisie is set to be abandoned after all football in the country was banned until September 1.

A UEFA statement read: "As a result of representations made by the football authorities in Belgium and Scotland, the committee recognises the issues raised and approved the guidelines on eligibility principles for 2020-21 UEFA club competitions. The guidelines reflect the principle that admission to UEFA club competitions is always based on sporting merit. "Therefore, UEFA urges national associations and leagues to explore all possible options to play all top domestic competitions giving access to UEFA club competitions to their natural conclusion. However, UEFA stresses that the health of players, spectators and all those involved in football as well as the public at large must remain the primary concern at this time. "The ideal scenario, should the pandemic situation permit it, is to have the currently suspended domestic competitions completed enabling football clubs to qualify for UEFA club competitions on sporting merit in their original format. "Should this outcome not be possible, in particular due to calendar issues, it would be preferable that suspended domestic competitions would restart with a different format in a manner which would still facilitate clubs to qualify on sporting merit."

Its statement continued: "If a domestic competition is prematurely terminated, UEFA would require the national association concerned to select clubs for the UEFA club competitions 2020-21 based on sporting merit in the 2019-20 domestic competitions. "The procedure for selecting clubs should be based on objective, transparent and non-discriminatory principles. National associations and leagues should otherwise have the ability to decide the final positions in their domestic competitions, having regard to the specific circumstances of each competition." UEFA also said it reserves the right to refuse admission to any club for next year's continental competition if it feels they have been chosen unfairly, including if "there is a public perception of unfairness in the qualification of the club." Among the other discussions at Thursday's meeting, UEFA said it is still discussing how to complete this year's Champions League and Europa League, which were both halted part way through their round-of-16 stages. It said it is considering whether to run the cups alongside leagues as it usually does, or wait until domestic competitions are done and play out the continental matches in August.
