Friday Football Accumulator Prediction
RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
The Bundesliga returns on Friday following the FIFA World Cup and winter breaks in Germany. Bayern Munich will restart the campaign in first place with four points separating them and second-place Freiburg. RB Leipzig are six points behind the Bavarians.
A win for RB Leipzig would open the door for a title challenge. Right now, a title challenge is possible but could be over if Bayern win against Leipzig and Freiburg lose to Wolfsburg on Saturday.
Three straight games in all competitions between these rivals ended with both teams scoring. Bayern won all six of the teams’ previous six encounters. However, the league is returning from a massive break, which could give RB Leipzig the opportunity to pick up maximum points.
Three straight RB Leipzig games ended with both teams scoring goals. Three of Bayern’s last four games ended with both teams scoring. Our betting tips prediction is for both teams to score.
Burnley vs West Brom
Burnley are running away with the Championship. The Clarets took 59 points from 27 fixtures and are 17 points clear of third-place Watford. Vincent Kompany’s team is five points above second-place Sheffield United, as the two teams fight for the Championship trophy.
On Friday night, Burnley will welcome sixth-place West Brom. The work manager Carlos Corberan has done with West Brom is incredible. When he took over, the Baggies were bottom of the table. Since then, Corberan has led West Brom to nine wins from 10 games in the league.
Burnley will have one of their biggest tests of the season. Fortunately for the Clarets, they will be playing at Turf Moor. Burnley are unbeaten at home this season in 14 games with 10 wins and four draws. Each of their last six home games ended as wins.
West Brom won four of their last six away matches, including each of their last two road games. The last three games between Burnley and West Brom in all competitions, including the reverse fixture in the Championship, ended as draws. Our betting tips prediction is for a Burnley win or draw double chance.
Sheffield United vs Hull City
Sheffield United are chasing Burnley for the Championship title. Five points separate the two teams heading into Friday night. The Blades are 11 points clear of third-place Watford and only a complete collapse would see Sheffield United fail to achieve automatic promotion back to the Premier League.
Hull City find themselves in 16th place ahead of the weekend. The Tigers are unbeaten in six straight league games under new manager Liam Rosenior. The team’s form has steered it away from the relegation zone. The Tigers will start the weekend eight points clear of the bottom three.
The reverse fixture saw Sheffield United go to Hull City and win 2-0 thanks to goals from Oliver McBurnie and Sander Berge on either side of halftime. The Blades are unbeaten in six straight games against Hull City with five of those matches ending as wins. Our betting tips prediction is for Sheffield United to win at full-time despite Hull City’s improved form under Rosenior.
Mallorca vs Celta Vigo
Celta Vigo manager Carlos Carvalhal is aiming for a fifth straight match without a defeat. The Sky Blues will travel to Mallorca on Friday to play La Liga’s 10th-place team. Despite being midtable, Mallorca are only six points clear of the relegation zone.
Friday night is a La Liga relegation six-pointer as 10th place to 20th place is separated by a mere six points. The Islanders are in form ahead of the match with 10 points from their last six games. However, they posted just five goals for and four against.
Celta Vigo took six points from the last six games. Four straight Celta games ended without defeat, yet three of those matches were draws. Three of the last six games between Mallorca and Celta Vigo ended as draws. Mallorca won twice and Celta Vigo won just once during that time.
Five of Celta Vigo’s 17 league games finished as draws, while Mallorca saw four of their 17 matches finish as stalemates. Mallorca are on a two-game home winning streak, but Celta Vigo are unbeaten in back-to-back away games. Our betting tips prediction is for a double chance Mallorca win or draw based on the form and recent history of the clubs.
Eupen vs Genk
Genk are on a two-game winning streak against Eupen in all competitions ahead of their match on Friday night. The Blues are the Belgium Pro League leaders and are on track to win the championship this season.
Eupen are battling relegation to the Belgium second division. The away side is just three points clear of the bottom three ahead of their trip to Genk.
Genk picked up 15 points from the last six games. They are on a three-game winning streak ahead of the weekend. Genk outscored their last six opponents 13-5. Eupen took eight points from the last six games, scoring 10 goals and conceding 10 times.
Genk are the Pro League’s best away team with eight wins and two losses from 10 games. The Blues conceded a mere 10 goals in their 10 away matches, while scoring 29 times. Earlier this season, Genk won 4-2 at home against Eupen. Genk won 13 of their last 14 games in the Pro League. Our betting tips prediction is for a Genk win at full-time.
