With various European leagues gearing up for the starting pistol ahead of the 2021-22 season, we delve into the action in Russia and Poland - with a quick trip Stateside - for Saturday's predictions.

Saturday's Football Accumulator Prediction

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Arsenal Tula Betting Tips

(Saturday, 18:00)

Lokomotiv to win - BET NOW

 

Our triple-header begins early on Saturday evening in Moscow, as Lokomotiv begin their Russian League campaign against Arsenal Tula. 

Finishing third last term and earning a spot in the group stages of the Europa League, the capital club will be hotly tipped to see off lowly Arsenal, who finished last season third from bottom and just one point clear of the drop.

The visitors lost all but one game on the road across the whole 2020/21 season, managing a draw at last-placed Tambov, and were hammered 3-0 on their own patch when Lokomotiv rolled into town. All the signs point to a winning start for the Muscovites. 

Legia Warsaw vs Wisla Plock Betting Tips

(Saturday, 19:00)

Legia Warsaw Half-Time/Full-Time - BET NOW

 

The second leg of our accumulator takes us back towards the continent, where defending Polish champions Legia Warsaw take on last season's strugglers, Wisla Plock. Much like Lokomotiv, the team from the capital go into this curtain-raiser as overwhelming favourites; last term saw them successfully defend their Ekstraklasa crown, clinching a 15th title with three games still to play.

Wisla ended the campaign in 12th in the 16-strong division, scoring just 37 goals across their 30 outings and winning just eight times. They suffered two defeats at the hands of the eventual league winners last term - including a 5-2 demolition in Warsaw - and a Legia side who scored twice as many goals as they let in look likely to begin the new season in characteristically powerful fashion. A short contest would surprise few.

Atlanta United vs Columbus Crew Betting Tips

(Saturday, 20:30)

Columbus Crew to win - BET NOW

 

Our final pick takes us to the MLS, whose season has long been in full-swing. Contrasting fortunes meet in Georgia as Columbus Crew ride in on the back of five games without defeat, for what will be the second meeting between the two franchises in a fortnight. 

A win against fellow playoff contenders New York City FC, along with draws against Eastern Conference leaders New England Revolution and fourth-placed Nashville in recent weeks leave Crew sixth out of 14, and a gallant performance in the reverse fixture against Atlanta on July 10 saw ten men overturn a 2-0 deficit to earn a valuable point.

United find themselves on a torrid barren run - their last win came 10 games ago against Club de Foot Montreal. Their record of just two victories from 14 outings is the joint lowest across the whole of MLS and in an uninspiring 1-1 draw with Cincinnati last time out, their wretched run showed no sign of ending.
