Another week of European and domestic football starts on Tuesday night, and that means plenty more acca insurance (money back if you miss by one) opportunities. These weeks are great for accumulators, with over 30 matches to choose from on our acca insurance coupons.
In the Champions League we see 4 matches, with Leicester hosting Sevilla, and Juventus at home to Porto, both on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, we see Monaco V Man City, and Atletico Madrid V Bayer Leverkusen (all are 2nd legs).
Then on Thursday, we have a further 8 Europa League fixtures, with Manchester United representing the Premier League. All this is backed up by over 20 matches in the Championship, Division 1, and Division 2. If you’re looking to bet on these matches, betting offers can be found on thecasinodb list of uk sports betting sites.
In the Champions League, England’s last two representatives, Leicester and Man City, will be hoping to make it through to the last 8.
Leicester are remarkably still in with a good shout to get through to the quarter-finals. The Foxes were totally outplayed in Spain three weeks ago (only losing 2-1), such was the Spaniard’s dominance, the tie could already be over. Jamie Vardy’s late away goal, and the subsequent change in fortune for Leicester (well, the sacking of Ranieri), sees them in with a great chance of progressing. A 1-0 win will do it for new manager, Craig Shakespeare’s team.
Man City are also slightly fortunate to be in such a good position. At one stage they were trailing 3-2 at home to Monaco, and at times, they were clearly second best, before a strong finish seen them overpower the young French side, and take a commanding lead (5-3) to the principality.
It’s hard to see Guardiola’s team keeping a clean sheet, so you get the impression that City will have to score against the attack minded Monaco, if they are to progress to the quarter-finals.
In the other two Champions League matches this week, Juventus host Porto, and they already look to be home and hosed. They won 2-0 away in Portugal in the 1st leg, so it’s hard to see the Italian champions not winning the tie from here.
In the final Champions League match of the week, Atletico Madrid host Bayer Leverkusen. Diego Simeone’s team already in a commanding 4-2 lead from the 1st leg in Germany. The Spaniards are renowned for their defensive strength (rather than scoring 4 on the road), so it would take a shock of monumental proportions to see this tie turn around.
Hopefully that has given you all some good ideas for your midweek accas. It would be great to see Leicester’s revival under Craig Shakespeare continue, and the thought of the Foxes in the quarter-final of the Champions League sounds almost as bizarre as them winning the Premier League last season.
The man City match could be equally as interesting, as I can just see goals in that one. Neither of the two teams look like they know how to defend, so it looks set to be a straight forward shoot-out to see who progresses.
