Friday kicks off a great weekend of football across Europe. Our football writers selected four matches for a four-fold accumulator bet for Friday night. This four-fold acca features matches from Serie A, the Bundesliga, the Championship, and Eredivisie.
Friday Football Accumulator Prediction
Napoli vs Lazio
Serie A kicks off Friday with a fantastic top-four clash between first-place Napoli and fourth-place Lazio. Napoli are cruising to the Serie A title this season. The Partenopei are 18 points clear of second-place Inter Milan in the title race.
Lazio are one point ahead of fifth-place Roma in the standings after the Giallorossi lost 2-1 to Cremonese on Tuesday. It was a shock result as Cremonese were the league’s last-placed team. Lazio are on a two-match Serie A win streak ahead of Friday’s trip to Naples. Three of Lazio’s last three road matches ended without a defeat. The Biancocelesti are in form as they head to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli, on the other hand, are on an eight-match winning streak in Serie A. They have the best home record in the league, with 10 wins and one draw in 11 matches. No team has scored more than Napoli’s 58 goals this season.
The last four Serie A matches between the teams were won by Napoli. Earlier this season, the Naples club posted a 2-1 win. Our betting tip is to back the league leader to win once more versus Lazio.
Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig
We are set for a fantastic match in the Bundesliga this weekend, as second-place Borussia Dortmund play fourth-place RB Leipzig. Dortmund are level on points with first-place Bayern Munich but sit in second place due to goal difference.
Leipzig are four points off the top spot and can take a step closer with a win and Bayern dropping points this weekend. Whatever the result is on Friday night, one of these teams will put pressure on Bayern Munich.
RB Leipzig romped to a 3-0 win against Dortmund in the reverse fixture. The match took place in September and much has changed for both sides since then. Borussia Dortmund have improved and will feel confident about winning at home.
Five of the last six head-to-head matches between Dortmund and Leipzig ended with both teams scoring goals. Three of the Yellow and Black’s last six games in the league ended BTTS. Four of Leipzig’s last six Bundesliga matches ended BTTS. Our tip is to back goals, with both teams scoring on Friday night.
Dortmund are on a five-match winning streak in the league at home. Three straight Dortmund home league matches ended as wins. Four of Leipzig’s last six road games saw both teams score. Goals could be on tap, unlike the reverse fixture in September.
Hull City vs West Brom
West Brom are still in the hunt for a promotion playoff place in the Championship. The Baggies are six points off the top six with 12 matches left to play this season. West Brom ended a three-match winless streak last time out with a 2-0 home win over Middlesbrough.
Hull City are 16th in the table after 34 matches. The Tigers are 11 points ahead of the relegation zone. They should play Championship football once more next season unless they completely capitulate down the stretch. The Tigers are winless in four straight Championship games and are coming off a 1-0 loss at Bristol City.
West Brom are on a six-game winning streak against Hull City. The Baggies claimed a 5-2 win earlier this season at the Hawthorns. West Brom are not in great form ahead of the trip to Hull, however. They took a mere seven points from the last six matches in the Championship, scoring seven goals and conceding eight times. The Baggies lost their last three games on the road. Two of those matches ended with BTTS.
Hull City picked up eight points from the last six games in the division. They went unbeaten at home with six straight matches ending without defeat. Their last three games finished with no BTTS. Hull’s home form is too good to ignore, despite West Brom’s six-match winning streak over them. Our betting tip is to back a double chance Hull City win or draw.
FC Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard
FC Utrecht are unbeaten in five of their last six matches against Fortuna Sittard in all competitions. On Friday night, Utrecht are aiming for another result against Sittard. The home side is coming off a shock loss in the KNVB Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday night. FC Utrecht fell 4-1 to lower-league club Spakenburg.
Fortuna Sittard go into Friday on the back of two straight defeats. The visitors are 12th in the Eredivisie standings and eight points off the relegation playoff place. FC Utrecht are seventh in the standings. Ten points separate Utrecht from the top three.
The Cathedral Citizens are in good league form, despite their cup exit on Tuesday. Utrecht took 11 points from the last 18 points on offer. They outscored their six opponents 12-9. Fortuna Sittard picked up 10 points from the last six games, despite their two-match losing streak. Sittard scored eight goals and conceded eight times across the last six matches.
Four of the last five matches between FC Utrecht and Fortuna Sittard finished with both teams scoring goals. Fortuna’s back-to-back league losses saw both teams score.
Utrecht are unbeaten in six straight league matches. They have a record of five wins, four draws, and two defeats this season in the Eredivisie. Sittard lost three of their last six away matches. The visitors have an away record of 4W-2D-5L this term. Forty-two per cent of Eredivisie matches this season were won by the home team. Our betting tip is to back FC Utrecht to win.
