Football accumulator tips for a busy Sunday of action from across Europe as our tipster picks out the best bets of the afternoon.
Football Accumulator Tips:
Bournemouth v Spurs – Spurs Draw No Bet
Bournemouth have a lot of injuries to contend with and the games are coming thick and fast. With Callum Wilson out of action for the forseeable and injuries to Max Gradel & Tommy Elphick, it's a struggle for Eddie Howe as he bids to guide his side to Premier League survival. Spurs never play well following a Europa League match, but this was only a jaunt to Belgium and Mauricio Poccettino laid into his side following their defeat to Anderlecht and I get the feeling a few home truths will do the trick. I don't think they'll win by much as they aren't know for scoring on their travels, but I think they can just about do enough. Son & Chadli are missing, but there is still enough quality on the pitch to overcome the Cherries.
Bordeaux v Troyes – Bordeaux win
Bordeaux let us down last week by failing to beat poor travellers Lyon. They ended up drawing 0-0, a low scoring affair was expected, but I fancy them to bounce back from their midweek disappointment against FC Sion in the Europa League. Willy Sagnol has a full compliment of strikers available for the first time this season and that may the difference between these two sides. Troyes have started the season poorly and have the worst away form in the league. Bordeaux have 8 points from their opening 5 home games and have scored 7 goals in the process. It doesn't sound a lot, but when compared to Troyes' 1 away from home and coupled with the 11 they've shipped, it makes us side with the home team.
Feyenoord v AZ Alkmaar – Both Teams to Score? Yes
Feyenoord have been unbeatable at home this season and I don't expect AZ to arrive here and take any points whatsoever, but I fancy them to score a goal at least. Feyenoord last week won 5-2 on the road in a topsy-turvy game when they faced Herenveen. Prior to that, they had narrowly won 1-2 away at De Graafschap and they have been leaking a few goals of late. They have won 8 of the last 9 games and are in scintillating form whilst AZ are unbeaten in their last 4 doemstic games. 4 of their last 5 games have ended with both teams finding the back of the net and I fancy it to happen here again. There always seems to be goals when these teams meet, the last encounter ended 4-1, there's been a 2-2, a 1-1 and a 3-1.
FC Porto v Sporting Braga – Under 2.5 goals
FC Porto are formidable at home and they have won every single goal this season to nil. Some of these were slightly easier opponents, but they have also seen off Benfica, that was by 1 goal to nil and I imagine it'll be similar fare here. They have also beaten Estoril and Guimaraes and they look unbeatable. Sporting's away matches haven't featured more than a single goal in them with 1 victory and 2 defeats, all with the same narrow margin. Only 2 goals conceded on their travels for Braga coupled with FC Porto's tight fisted-ness means that this game shouldn't lack quality, but is likely to lack goals. Outside of Uniao Madeira, these two have the stingiest defences in the division and I expect 1 goal to settle it.
NEC Nijmegen v FC Groningen – NEC Nijmegen to score over 1.5 team goals
Groningen were in action on Thursday in the Europa League and a last gasp penalty saved their skin as they were staring defeat in the face against Slovan Liberec. Erwin Van Der Looi's men have been in appalling form on the road this season and I expect their away day woes to continue here. NEC are an efficient outfit. They put 4 past ADO Den Haag last time here and prior to that 2 past Herenveen, both sides who struggle with their away form, but still have a slightly better record than Groningen. Against Willem II last weekend, they always looked shaky at the back, despite little to no threat from their opponents. I fancy them to ship a couple here and it could be NEC's 4th home win of the season.
