The Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League return from their winter slumber this week, providing us with a packed midweek of quality football. When you add in domestic matches on Monday and Friday plus an EFL card in midweek, there’s a packed slate which should be full of goals.
Once again we’ve run through the week’s offering to pick out the matches that look set for thrillers, picking out five win and both teams to score tips from Monday to Friday. Those five tips combine for a massive 1112/1 acca which takes you through to next weekend’s action!
You can see each of those five selections and back the accumulator below.
The Entertainers Accumulator
Monday – Boavista vs Casa Pia
Boavista have won two of their last three home games in the league and they should be confident going into Monday’s clash with out-of-sorts Casa Pia.
The visitors won the reverse fixture but they head into this one having lost four of their last five matches. The visitors have still scored in three of their last four and they meet a leaky Boavista defence, but the hosts look good enough to take full advantage of the away side.
Tip: Boavista to win & BTTS
Tuesday – Bristol Rovers vs Ipswich
Bristol Rovers have lost five straight games and things get tougher in midweek when they host an Ipswich side who are chasing promotion. So far this term Rovers haven’t beaten any side in the top eight (D4 L4) and that bad record doesn’t look to be changing soon.
Ipswich have defensive issues on their travels – both teams have scored in their last five away – but they are fresh from a 2-2 draw with second-placed Sheffield Wednesday and they should prove too strong for the struggling hosts.
Tip: Ipswich to win & BTTS
Wednesday – Borussia Dortmund vs Chelsea
Dortmund have won six from six in 2023 and they have a host of in-form attackers ready to take on the Blues. The German side have scored 17 goals across six games this year and they meet a Blues side who have left standout defender Benoit Badiashile out of their Champions League squad.
Dortmund have won three straight home games, scoring 12 times across them. The likes of Augsburg and Freiburg have scored in their last two at this ground so the Blues should find the back of the net, having scored in every group game under Graham Potter. However, the visitors lack the firepower to match the in-form hosts, so back Dortmund to win and concede.
Tip: Dortmund to win & BTTS
Thursday – Trabzonspor vs Basel
Trabzonspor have won six successive home games and they won all three home games in their Europa League group despite exiting the competition. As you can guess, their away record in Europe is poor so if they have any chance of progression then a home win is key.
The visitors are in mixed form since returning to action but they’ve seen both teams score in four of their last five games. Basel also scored in all three trips in the group stage of the Europa Conference League and they can net in a defeat this week.
Tip: Trabzonspor to win & BTTS
Friday – Sassuolo vs Napoli
Serie A’s runaway leaders aren’t back in European action until next week but they can continue their silverware chase is a visit to struggling Sassuolo. The hosts drew 2-2 in their last game and they’ve certainly found their scoring touch, but they meet the league’s top scorers on Friday night.
Napoli have won 11 of the last 20 games between these two but barely during that time has the gulf between the pair been this big. Napoli won 4-0 at home earlier this season and 6-1 in April last year. Expect Sassuolo to make an impact after scoring in seven of their last eight home league games, but Napoli have won nine of 11 league trips this season.
Tip: Napoli to win & BTTS
