Wednesday Football Accumulator Prediction
Manchester United vs Leeds United
Manchester United host Leeds United with the chance to cut Arsenal’s lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points. Just when Erik ten Hag’s team looked out of the title race, they creep back in.
United picked up 13 points from their last six games in the league. They outscored their last six opponents 11-6. The Red Devils are unbeaten in six straight games versus Leeds in all competitions. Last season, United smashed Leeds by a combined score of 9-3. Their last two meetings at Old Trafford saw Man United win by a combined 11-3.
Leeds are coming off another defeat in the league on Sunday, as they fell 1-0 to Nottingham Forest. The Whites were the better team for most of the match, yet found a way to lose to Forest. Three points were picked up by Leeds United in their last six games.
Leeds have the joint-worst away points total this campaign in the league. Just five points have been picked up from 10 games away from Elland Road.
Our betting tips prediction is for Manchester United to pick up a home win over Leeds United on Wednesday.
Sunderland vs Fulham
Sunderland and Fulham will meet in an FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Stadium of Light. Fulham had to come from behind in the reverse fixture after falling behind early to Fulham at Craven Cottage. Now, the teams will meet in a replay with progression to the fifth round on the cards.
Sunderland are in the mix for a place in the Championship’s promotion playoffs. The FA Cup is an unwanted distraction for the Black Cats. However, Tony Mowbray will hope the competition can continue to fuel the team on.
Fulham go into the game winless in four straight games in all competitions. Their last two matches ended in draws, as they finished 1-1 with Sunderland and nil-nil against Chelsea at the weekend.
Likewise, Sunderland drew in their last two games in all competitions. Their 1-1 stalemate with Fulham was followed by a 1-1 draw with Millwall in the Championship. Fulham’s Marco Silva is banned from the game due to an accumulation of yellow cards.
Fulham’s last four games ended with under 2.5 goals. Sunderland saw under 2.5 goals in their last three games in all competitions. Our betting tips prediction is for under 2.5 goals.
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Emmen
Reigning KNVB Cup winners, PSV Eindhoven will face FC Emmen on Wednesday in the round of 16 of the competition. PSV Eindhoven are in a title race in the Netherlands in which four teams are within six points of first-place Feyenoord.
The Lightbulbs drew 2-2 at the weekend with Feyenoord. They are unbeaten in five of their last six league matches ahead of FC Emmen’s trip to the Philips Stadion. FC Emmen are a fellow Eredivisie team but find themselves in the bottom three currently.
Just one of FC Emmen’s last six games ended as a win. That one win was against PSV Eindhoven in January. Emmen won 1-0 against the Lightbulbs in the league which ended a five-game unbeaten streak against them.
PSV Eindhoven did win their last three home games versus FC Emmen. Although they lost in January away to Emmen, PSV won at the Philips Stadion in August 4-1. PSV have an 8W-1D-1L record at home in the Eredivisie this season. Our betting tips prediction is for the KNVB Cup holders to win at home.
Feyenoord vs NEC Nijmegen
It is another all-Eredivisie match-up in the KNVB Cup round of 16, as Feyenoord and NEC Nijmegen face off. Feyenoord are fresh off a 2-2 draw with PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie, as they remained in first place following the weekend action in the Netherlands. However, Feyenoord are just two points ahead of AZ Alkmaar.
NEC Nijmegen are 10th in the 18-team league. They go into the cup match in Rotterdam winless in three straight games in the Eredivisie. Wednesday’s match will be the third meeting of the 2022-23 campaign between Feyenoord and NEC Nijmegen. Feyenoord took a point in Nijmegen as the teams drew 1-1. Feyenoord then won 2-0 when the teams faced off in Rotterdam in the reverse fixture.
Our betting tips prediction is for Feyenoord to pick up another win over Nijmegen. The Rotterdam club are unbeaten in six straight games versus NEC with five of those games ending as wins.
Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund
The DFB Pokal round of 16 continues this week with an all-Bundesliga tie between Bochum and Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund are back in the Bundesliga title race with three points separating them from first-place Bayern.
Bochum are at the opposite end of the table. They are 15th in the Bundesliga and three points above the relegation-playoff place. Bochum go into the game fresh off a weekend 5-2 win over Hoffenheim.
Dortmund are on a four-game winning streak in the league ahead of the DFB Pokal round of 16. The Yellow and Black are in form and playing some of their best football of the season. Borussia Dortmund defeated Freiburg 5-1 at the weekend.
The teams have met once already this season, with Dortmund easing to a 3-0 win. Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten in five of their last six games versus Bochum. They won three and drew two of those five matches. Our betting tips prediction is for Borussia Dortmund to win at full-time and march on to the quarterfinals of the cup.
