Road Warriors Long Haul Accumulator Tip
Monday – Birmingham vs Leicester
Birmingham have struggled since the arrival of Wayne Rooney as manager in October and despite picking up their second win under the former England captain during the week, they could come unstuck when Championship leaders Leicester visit St Andrew’s.
Leicester have picked up more points (25), wins (eight) and goals (21) of any team in the second tier this season and having taken 13 points from the last 15 available since the November international break, they should have too much for Rooney’s Blues.
Tip: Leicester to win
Tuesday – Port Vale vs Middlesbrough
Port Vale are the lowest-ranked team left in this season’s Carabao Cup, but they are yet to play a side from a higher division and will head into their home clash with Middlesbrough having won just one of their last six on their own patch.
Boro returned to winning ways with victory at Swansea last time out and having won all four of their matches in this season’s Carabao Cup away from home, another road success could be on the cards for Michael Carrick’s team.
Tip: Middlesbrough to win
Wednesday – Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich were thrashed 5-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt in their last Bundesliga away match, but they had won their three previous league games on the road and can add another three points when they visit Wolfsburg.
Wednesday’s hosts have only won one of their previous four league games at the Volkswagen Arena and they are without a victory in their last 18 meetings, home or away, with Bayern.
Tip: Bayern Munich to win
Thursday – Cadiz vs Real Sociedad
Real Sociedad are unbeaten in eight on the road, a run that includes a Champions League victory at Benfica and a 3-0 success at Villarreal in La Liga.
Another away win should follow for Imanol Alguacil’s side on Thursday when they visit a Cadiz team battling against relegation and that are without a win in any of their last five home fixtures.
Tip: Real Sociedad to win
Friday – Crewe vs Barrow
Two of this season’s surprise packages in League Two will meet at the Mornflake Stadium on Friday, but while host’s Crewe’s form has dipped of late – no win in four – Barrow will head into the game flying high.
The Bluebirds are on the longest unbeaten run in the division (11 matches), winning the last six of those, while they have also picked up the most away points of any team in the fourth tier (21).
Tip: Barrow to win
Saturday – Sutton vs Mansfield
Another away winner in League Two this week could be Mansfield, who returned to form with a 3-1 success at Crawley last time out and they will be hopeful of securing another away-day maximum when they visit bottom of the table Sutton.
Relegation is a real concern for Sutton and their confidence could be at an all-time low after Saturday’s 8-0 thrashing at Stockport. Mansfield may not win by that margin but they should have enough about them to prosper at the VBS Community Stadium.
Tip: Mansfield to win
Sunday – Motherwell vs Rangers
Motherwell are without a win since September 3rd, a run of 14 matches and the visit of Rangers is unlikely to bring any respite to Stuart Kettlewell and his players.
Rangers have been flying under Philippe Clement and they were 3-2 winners at Real Betis in their last away fixture, a result that sealed their progress through to the last 16 of the Europa League.
Tip: Rangers to win
