Daily Acca Tips: Leicester, Braga and Bologna all make the cut
The temperatures may be dropping around the UK, but in the football world, things are hotting up. There are key clashes across Europe’s top leagues, as we head into the business end of the season.
The Coral News Team have put together some of their tips on Saturday’s action for you. If this five-fold were to come good, a £5 stake could pay over £180.
This set of picks covers five fixtures in four countries, kicking off with Sporting Braga’s trip to Estoril.
Sporting Braga – 10/11
Braga head to Estoril on the back of five wins in their last six Primeira Liga games. It’s a run in which Os Arcebispos have chalked up an eye-catching 16 goals.
Hosts Estoril find themselves in a relegation battle. They’ve lost each of their last three games by a multiple-goal margin. In the Head-to-Head record, Braga have taken 10 points from the last four clashes, winning the most recent meeting 6-0.
Bologna – 21/10
SPAL are battling manfully in their first Serie A campaign for 49 years, but the club’s woeful home record has seen them pulled into a relegation dogfight. And they’re likely to struggle on home turf again as Bologna visit on Saturday.
Roberto Donadoni’s men head into this game on the back of successive victories. They also took maximum points from SPAL in the reserve fixture. With the hosts managing a single win in 12 at Stadio Paolo Mazza, Bologna could take the spoils.
Leicester City – 5/6
Despite a patchy away record, the King Power Stadium has offered plenty of comforts for Leicester lately. The Foxes are unbeaten in seven on their own patch, and have beaten the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool there this season.
Saturday sees the East Midlands outfit play host to AFC Bournemouth. Eddie Howe’s side have lost five of their last eight away games in all competitions, including a 3-0 FA Cup defeat to League One Wigan Athletic.
Watford – 11/10
The Hornets enjoyed a successful February, recording victories over Everton (1-0) and Chelsea (4-1). And the Hertfordshire club will be looking to maintain that form for Saturday’s visit of West Bromwich Albion.
The Baggies look set for relegation after four straight Prem losses, and they’ve also been knocked out of the FA Cup in recent weeks. Factor in that Watford won the last meeting at Vicarage Road 2-0, and it’s hard to see Javi Gracia’s men dropping points.
Eintracht Frankfurt – 4/5
Frankfurt are having some season in 2017-18. Right now, Die Adler sit in fourth place – just two points below Borussia Dortmund in second. And they can take another step towards securing a European spot when they face Hannover 96.
It’s no surprise to see Niko Kovac’s men as favourites in the odds, especially as they’ve beaten Hannover in each of the last four meetings. As for the visitors’ away form this season, they’ve picked up just 11 points from 12.
