    do you I think about football game. I said that for the next game I look across (I don't know if you mean you think that this team will win or lose so I can't suggest a phrase) G team Team G because G team Team G are so easy to pass. Now I am looking ahead (or forward) to the next next game to play with forA team Team A.

    See above. I have made various corrections to your entire post. You need to take care with tenses and ensure that you always give the first person singular "I" a capital letter.

    As far as "look across" is concerned - I don't know what you meant by it. Did you mean that you think that Team G will lose. If so, then perhaps you could say that you "overlook" Team G, as if to say you are going to ignore them completely because you don't think they'll win.

    "Look ahead" can be used if you're perhaps saying that you are looking into the future and perhaps predicting the score of Team A's game. However, if you're excited about Team A's next game, then you would use "look forward to".

    Thank you emsr2d2.

    In the following sentense I mean Team G will lose. So I could say I overlook Team G right?
