Welcome to Mystic Björk’s Group E, Matchday 5 Visions
KR Reykjavik (roscola) Vs Norwich (LightKnight)
My glorious home team are perched magnificently atop the group E table and a home game against the struggling, eccentric Norwich ought to help sustain them there.
It’s no secret that I’m very fond of Norwich’s far-from-the-norm approach; I made a career out of the same tack. It hasn’t been paying dividends lately but the big-fat-five-at-the-back approach seems well suited to this gameweek. Every one of those big hitters has a great fixture for 6-point goals. With the two most attacking defenders from the traditionally high scoring NLD, plus a rampant Baines against Reading and GJ against Wigan, there will never be a better week to prove the validity of the strategy. He also has Wilshere and Lennon for the NLD. Those back five will need to carry his strikeforce though; Benteke against City, and Fletcher against, well, anyone, don’t sound full of points.
It certainly won’t be plain sailing though. Reykjavik have plenty of potential, as long as the whole side turns out. If Evans, Sturridge don’t make it though, they may struggle.
Much will likely hinge on whether LightKnight continues his differential of differentials – flying Baleless. For Bale is clearly the man in form and represents Reykjavik’s biggest advantage in this tie.
Mystic Björk’s Vision: I think Norwich will captain Lord Leighton of Baines this week and another big performance from him against Reading will prove too much for Rekyjavik. Close, but this will be Norwich’s week.
Fiorentina (RoysCallerAnne) Vs Panathinaikos (Acquafresca)
Fiorentina could do with a win here to keep their title hopes alive. What are the chances of that? Against the unspeakably good form of Panathanaikos, slim. Let’s look deeper.
At the back, both teams look to be in a bit of trouble. Key battle here is Clichy Vs GJ. Score 1 for Panathanaikos, I feel.
It gets more interesting at the front.
F – 3 of: Sissoko, Puncheon, Suarez & Sturridge
P – 3 of: Michu, Schneiderlin, Podolski & Lambert
