Who will be relegated?

While the teams which are newly promoted from the Championship are usually amongst the hot favourites to go down again, before the start of a new season, in recent years the likes of Stoke City and Swansea have demonstrated that a team can come up and establish itself as a Premiership force. Fans of Cardiff, Hull and Crystal Palace will be hoping that their sides can match this achievement, but it is not surprising that the bookies have put low odds on all three being relegated this coming season.

Fans of Cardiff, who won the Championship, may feel slightly aggrieved at their odds of 7/4 to go down again – but these odds still make them the team that the bookmakers consider the least likely to be relegated. Palace and Hull have odds 4/7 and7/10 respectively, which means they will really be up against it if the sports betting sites have called it right.

Certainly a lot football betting fans will gambling on Palace and Hull to go down, but may look at a team like Norwich at 11/4 as an alternative to Cardiff, although fans of these teams won’t want to bet on any of them. For those supporters an online casino football slots game would probably be a more palatable alternative.
Games like Soccer Safari, a video slot with five reels and thirty pay lines, let you enjoy both football and betting while also offering an escape from the worries of the relegation dogfight.

If your team is involved in that then the ‘animals play football’ premise of Soccer Safari will be the perfect comedy tonic, thanks to the superb animated graphics that make it come alive. Games like this also offer a strong likelihood of a payout, because of the number of pay lines, plus the wild reel icons that substitute for other missing ones to produce winning lines, so they should be well worth your while even if you don’t prove to be a maximum jackpot winner.


Newell’s Old Boys became the winners of “Final” Championship in Argentina. They did so in a bizarre fashion. They didn’t have to kick a football for that. The result of a match went in their favour and they won the Championship.

Lanus, a team which was challenging Newell’s for the Championship, was up against Estudiantes on Wednesday. Actually, that match was scheduled to take place 10 days ago and it had started 10 days ago as well. The first half went on peacefully, but, then, something unfortunate happened at the stadium. A supporter got killed in a police confrontation.

The match was stopped that day. In that first half, Estudiantes had taken a lead of 2-0.
It had been decided to organize the second half of that match on Wednesday. Lanus had to turn things around in those 45 minutes to win the final Championship. But, they didn’t manage to do so. Estudiantes maintained its lead of 2-0 as the second half went goalless.

This is the 6th time that Newell’s has won this title. The credit must be given to their manager Gerardo Martino who had taken the charge just at the start of the season.
Martino went about his job in a brilliant manner. He signed quite a few experienced players including Gabriel Heinze and Maxi Rodriguez and neither of his signings let him down. All those players were consistent right through the Championship.

Newell’s Old Boys is a Rosario based club and the celebrations were in full flow at Rosario on Wednesday.
However, the season hasn’t yet ended for the Newell’s Old Boys. They are in the final 4 of Copa Libertadores. Their opponent in the semi finals will be the Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro. The first leg of that clash will take place on 3rd of July.
