Holly Thackeray | January 27, 2016
Another weekend of thrilling football fixtures awaits to end January in style, and set February up with a fantastic flutter, as the Coral Football Jackpot gives customers a chance to win big from a guaranteed prize pool of £100k for just a £1 stake per line!
End dry January with a bang and potentially quench your post-festive bank balance by correctly calling the outcome of 15 clashes across the FA Cup, Scottish League Cup and Serie A. Coral writers give their predictions below, which you may or may not wish to use as a guide for your own.
Arsenal v Burnley – Home win
The Gunners have lost just three of their 15 home fixtures this season, and have more than enough attacking talent to send Championship club the Clarets packing.
Aston Villa v Manchester City – Away win
It will have been a hectic week of cup clashes for Man City, but they have been able to afford to rest players recently, so should have plenty of potency to run rampant against Villa’s rocky rearguard.
Bolton Wanderers v Leeds United – Draw
This tussle arrives as the Trotters have finally picked up a string of results, with Leeds’ form slowing a little, so expect a tight scuffle here.
Bury v Hull City – Away win
League One Bury face a daunting battle with Championship side Hull, who are in truly tigerish form with five wins in a row including 12 goals scored and only one conceded.
Crystal Palace v Stoke City – Away win
The Eagles look unremarkable at the moment, while the Potters were very unlucky to narrowly miss out on a Capital One Cup final place and will seek to bounce back here.
Nottingham Forest v Watford – Away win
The Hornets are back on track, with hitman Odion Ighalo among the goals again, so should edge this encounter with second-tier side Forest.
Oxford United v Blackburn Rovers – Home win
The U’s may be League Two, but that didn’t stop them dispatching Premier League side Swansea City last time out in the FA Cup. While, Rovers remain inconsistent on the road.
Portsmouth v Bournemouth – Away win
Bournemouth can stay on the south coast for this FA Cup fixture, and will fancy their chances versus Pompey, as new buy Benik Afobe has given the Cherries extra bite.
Reading v Walsall – Away win
The Saddlers are a side pushing for promotion from League One, while Reading are far from impressive in the Championship, so the spoils may be Walsall’s to take.
Liverpool v West Ham United – Away win
Whatever happens, there should be goals galore here. Though, the Hammers have the upper hand having done the league double over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds already.
Chievo v Juventus – Away win
Reigning Serie A champions Juventus are on a truly rampant run of 11 consecutive league victories, so there can surely only be one winner in this latest clash!
Carlisle v Everton – Away win
Roberto Martinez’s Toffees have endured some misery in recent weeks, but they hold a solid away record and should possess enough quality to overcome their lower ranked opposition in the FA Cup.
Ross County v Celtic – Away win
Ronny Deila’s Bhoys should prove too strong against Ross County as they continue the defence of their Scottish League Cup crown, with Hoops hitman Leigh Griffiths firing on all cylinders.
MK Dons v Chelsea – Away win
Under Guus Hiddink, Chelsea have enjoyed a domestic revival and will now also be targeting some silverware to go with it, so back the Blues to prevail over their League One opponents.
AC Milan v Inter Milan – Draw
In one of the fiercest derbies in world football, it’s Roberto Mancini’s Inter that are seeking Serie A glory, while the Rossoneri look to climb up the table, though little could separate them at the famous San Siro this time out.
