15/1 Tuesday football accumulator
Frank Monkhouse | 25 July 2017
Champions League four-fold
We have arrived at the qualifying third round of the Champions League, and some familiar names drop into the list, including the likes of Olympiakos and CSKA Moscow. British football fans have Celtic out on Wednesday and Everton in Europa League action on Thursday.
Getting through Tuesday’s round first of all, Coral’s football team have put together a four-fold at a decent price. Follow our thinking to a £10 stake and if we’re on the money, you’ll land a £165.40 pay-out. Sound good? Click here to place your midweek football bets, or read on as we skip through our accumulator.
Slavia Prague beat BATE Borisov
We get off the mark with a punt on Czech First League side Slavia Prague to do the business at home. The locals will be aiming to lay down a marker here, the last thing anyone from The Sewn-Ones will want is to go into the second-leg road trip needing to score and win. They can make things easy for themselves by sorting this out sooner rather than later. This will be the first competitive meeting of these sides in history, but we’re going with home advantage at a useful 4/9.
Qarabag beat Sheriff Tiraspol
We have to stick with Qarabag here. This will be a step up in grade, but they have been impressive in the earlier rounds of this competition, beating Samtredia home and away last time. That double-header included a 5-0 first-leg victory at home, and although Sheriff Tiraspol won’t be quite so easy to pass, the locals are high on confidence and more than capable of nicking a lead. Our traders are on the same page, and offer Qarabag up as 4/7 jollies to get the job done. That’ll do us a favour.
Olympiakos beat Partizan Belgrade
Greek giants Olympiakos won the Superleague last term, and will fancy their chances of going and doing something in this competition. Qualification for the group stages is no mean feat these days, but that’ll be the least fans and the board expect from Besnik Hasi and his boys. They’ve been handed a tricky opener, and a scoring draw wouldn’t be the worst result here, as it would hand the Greeks an advantage, but we’re going to have them to get the desired result and take a lead back to Athens. 27/20 looks on the generous side, and helps boost up our returns.
Viktoria Plzen beat FCSB
Lastly, we’re on another at a decent price in Viktoria Plzen vs FCSB. The Czech side start away from home, and this is sure to be a tight evening’s work, but an away win wouldn’t come as a major surprise, and we think they have been overpriced. Both sides will go into this with plenty of rust, but the better standard of player comes out of the away dressing room, and that should show over the two legs. There’s very little in the betting, but this looks a real 50/50, so we’re going to go with the bigger price and have Plzen to win at 21/10. That’s value.
