It’s the opening day of August and already the new football season feels like its getting into full swing. The Premier League clubs may still be off at their preseason friendlies, but plenty of European leagues are up and running.
Here we’ve put together a rundown of the games from some of Europe’s overlooked divisions. We’ve got tips for the Austrian Bundesliga, Belgian First Division and Swiss Super League. Together they combine for a 184/1 accumulator tip, which you can back below.
Sunday’s 184/1 European accumulator
Austria Vienna vs Swarovski Tirol
Both teams to score at 8/13 – ⭐⭐
Austria Vienna have seen both teams score in each of their last four games, while they meet a Swarovski Tirol side who opened up their season with a 1-1 draw at the weekend. The hosts have scored in their last eight Bundesliga games, but they’ve only kept one clean sheet in that run.
Wolfsberger AC vs Sturm Graz
Sturm Graz to win at 23/20 – ⭐⭐
The visitors have won three of their last four league games, losing the other to Salzburg last weekend as the new season got underway. Sturm Graz won their final two away trips of the season including a visit to Wolfsburger, who are winless in six Bundesliga games.
Salzburg vs Ried
Over 2.5 Salzburg team goals at 1/2 – ⭐⭐⭐
Salzburg scored three times home and away to Reid last term and the visitors come here with some patchy league form behind them. Salzburg have scored seven goals across their opening two games of the season and they’ve scored three or more in four of their last five Bundesliga matches.
Belgium First Division A
Union Saint-Gilloise vs Club Brugge
Both teams to score at 7/10 – ⭐⭐
The hosts made a great start after promotion with their 3-1 win at Anderlecht in their season opener last time out. They’ll face a tougher test against Club Brugge, but the visitors drew 2-2 with Eupen last time out so its worth backing goals in this encounter.
Zulte-Waragem vs Standard Liege
Both teams to score at 4/7 – ⭐⭐⭐
Including friendlies, Standard’s last six games have all seen both teams score. They’ve seen both teams score in four of their last five league games, while Zulte have scored at least twice in their last four league games at home while conceding in six straight at their own ground.
Gent vs Beerschot
Gent to win at 4/11 – ⭐⭐⭐
Gent suffered a shock opening weekend loss but they’ve won four of their last five in the league ahead of this clash. Beerschot have lost four of their last five games and they lost 3-0 and 5-1 in their visits to Gent last season.
Antwerp vs Kortrijk
Both teams to score at 4/5 – ⭐⭐
Antwerp have scored in five of their last six at home, including a high-scoring win over Kortrijk last term. The visitors won their opening game but they’ve now seen BTTS in three of their last four league games, so it’s worth backing a high-scoring clash here.
Switzerland Super League
St. Gallen vs Luzern
St Gallen to win at 11/10 – ⭐⭐
Luzern have lost their last three league games, conceding 11 goals during that run. Meanwhile, St Gallen have won their last three in the league, scoring nine themselves. The hosts should build on that to claim a victory here.
Basel vs Sion
Over 1.5 Basel goals at 1/2 – ⭐⭐
Basel have scored at least twice in eight of their last 10 meetings with Sion, while they’ve scored two or more in three of their last four games. Sion have conceded 11 times in their last five trips and should ship more goals in this encounter.
Servette vs Lugano
Both teams to score at 8/11 – ⭐⭐⭐
Five of the last six clashes between these two sides have seen both teams score. Servette have seen both teams score in their last 16 home league games, so we’re backing more goals when these two sides clash.
