Daily Acca Tips: Lyon, Coventry and a Championship draw included

A £5 stake could return £171

The weekend gets off with a bang on Friday night, thanks to a host of top-class football.

In addition to crucial clashes in the Championship and League Two, there’s action from Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga.

Once again, the Coral News Team are back with five top tips on the evening’s action, starting in France…

Olympique Lyonnais – 2/5

Nobody can match Lyon for form in Ligue 1 right now. Les Gones head to Dijon on the back of five wins, including a 5-0 demolition of Metz in their last away game.

The home side have won just once in six games, and were comfortably beaten 3-1 by Olympique Marseille in their last match at Stade Gaston-Gerard.

Lyon have scored seven times in their last two meetings with Dijon. Another triumph for the in-form visitors seems likely.

Coventry City – 4/6

The Sky Blues sit just a point below the League Two play-offs following Saturday’s impressive win away at Crawley Town. And they should bag another vital three points against a Stevenage side with a poor away record.

They’ve lost 12 of their 21 games on the road, and have struggled in past meetings with Coventry. The East Midlands club have won three of the last four meetings, drawing the other.

VfL Bochum – 5/4

In-form Bochum have their own sights set on the Bundesliga next season. They’re currently outsiders for promotion, but have plenty to play for. And having taken 16 points from the last 18 available, they’ll be confident of a result at Greuther Furth.

Damir Buric’s hosts have lost two of their last four games, including a home defeat to Jahn Regensburg on Friday night. And leaky Furth will have their work cut out again with Bochum hitman Lukas Hinterseer, who’s scored six times in four games.

Borussia Monchengladbach – 20/23

Die Fohlen have been hit-and-miss in 2018, but they’re getting along far better than visitors Wolfsburg. The away side haven’t won back-to-back Bundesliga games since way back in March 2017.

Their only two victories in this calendar year have come against sides in the bottom six. As for Monchengladbach, they do tend to come through at home. They’re unbeaten in three games at Borussia-Park, beating Hertha BSC 2-1 in the most recent one.

Millwall v Fulham: Draw – 5/2

Both of these sides are in terrific form of late. Millwall haven’t lost a league game since New Year’s Day – winning 10 and drawing six of those. Visitors Fulham have gone even longer without league defeat; back to mid-December.

With both sides so difficult to beat, and both in a position where defeat could be disastrous, it might not be impossible to split the sides tonight.

Especially so as this tends to be a tight fixture – the last two meetings ended with a draw and a 1-0 Fulham win.
