Kane scores 200th as Spurs win in Europa League

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has scored his 200th goal for the side. The historic strike came during the team’s latest Europa League match against Bulgaria’s Ludogorets Razgrad as Tottenham easily bested their opponents in a comfortable 3-1 win.

Kane scored early for the Spurs, after 13 minutes, followed by Lucas Moura in the 32nd minute. Claudio Keserü kept Ludogorets alive with his effort shortly after half-time’, making the score 2-1. However, Giovani Lo Celso made it 3-1 after 62 minutes, sealing the Bulgarians’ fate.

Tottenham are well supported at UK betting sites right now. Leading the Europa League’s Group J, Spurs are getting favorable Europa League betting odds with most bookmakers and if Kane is to continue to quickly add to his tally, their odds will only get shorter.

Nigeria lose Omeruo to injury ahead of AFCON qualifiers

Nigeria’s Super Eagles are set to play two qualifying matches for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations against Sierra Leone, with the two games scheduled for November 13th and 17th. However, Nigeria will have to play without central defender Kenneth Omeruo.

The 27-year-old CD Leganes player recently confirmed he won’t be present for the match. He suffered a hamstring injury during the second-half of Leganes’ game against Mirandes in Spain’s Segunda Division. A mere three minutes after kick-off, Omeruo suffered a hamstring injury.

The injury will reportedly sideline the player for at least two weeks. This means he’ll miss both of Nigeria’s AFCON qualifiers, likely affecting AFCON betting odds. African soccer betting sites are already shifting lines in reaction to the news.

Barcelona beat Dynamo Kyiv 2-1 in UEFA Champions League

With eight thrilling matches this past Wednesday, Matchday 3 of the UEFA Champions League is over. The Group G fixture in Camp Nou saw Barcelona beat the Ukrainians by 2-1. Messi and Piqué scored for Barça, with Tsyhankov scoring Dynamo’s single goal.

Barcelona, long-time sports betting favorite, gained an early advantage with Messi from the penalty spot at 5’. Piqué made the score 2-0 at 65’, with Tsyhankov giving Kyiv their first goal at 75’. Barça’s victory is their third in three matches, consolidating their Group G lead.

The Ukrainian club was heavily battered by coronavirus-related absences to its first-team roster. Six players tested positive ahead of the match, wrecking the team’s Champions League betting odds. European betting sites overwhelmingly favor Messi’s Barcelona to win Group G.

Unión beat Emelec to reach Copa Sudamericana round of 16

In a hotly contested match, Unión de Santa Fe managed to prevail over Club Sport Emelec. The Argentinian squad beat the Ecuadorians 2-1, and will now move onto the Copa Sudamericana’s round of 16. They’re the first Argentinian team to win a Copa Sudamericana match in Ecuador.

In their previous encounter, Unión had home-field advantage. However, they lost 0-1 to the Guayaquil-based Emelec. Playing away from home, though, Unión put in a stellar performance, as an early goal from Javier Cabrera after 21 minutes gave Unión the initial advantage.

Emelec evened the score at 62’, but Fernando Márquez made it 2-1 from the penalty spot. The Unión victory should affect the outlook of South American betting sites. The squad is looking increasingly competitive, which is bound to reflect on Copa Sudamericana betting odds.

NRL: Broncos set to lose Jack Bird to Dragons

The Brisbane Broncos are losing one of their centres to the St George Illawarra Dragons. Jack Bird has unveiled a new deal to play for the Dragons for two years despite still having a full season to go before his contract with the Broncos expires.

NRL betting odds for the Broncos are unlikely to be affected much by the move. Bird, a former key player for the Cronulla Sharks, has underperformed during his time at Brisbane. In 17 games over three seasons, Bird has only scored two tries.

Bird will be moving to his native New South Wales to play for his new side. It’s unclear how Bird’s presence will affect the Dragons going forward.

Foster rings changes ahead of Bledisloe Cup IV

The fourth Test of the Bledisloe Cup is just around the corner. Having secured the Cup with a 43-5 cleanout in the third Test, the All Blacks are feeling fairly confident that they will once again best the Wallabies. That may be why New Zealand coach Ian Foster is seizing the opportunity to tinker with his side ahead of the match.

The coach has announced 10 changes to the roster. These changes include four players making their first Test appearance. Foster sees this as a great opportunity for young and inexperienced prospects to develop their talents on the world stage.

New Zealand are the long-time favorites when it comes to Bledisloe Cup odds at rugby union betting sites, as the All Blacks have won the past 18 editions in a row. New Zealand betting sites tend to reflect this, with fairly tight odds.
