OVERVIEW: There’s a real European Super League feel about this week’s accumulator. 5 top sides, all strong favourites, selected from Europe’s best divisions. What could possibly go wrong this Halloween?!
It’s the first time in a while I’ve picked matches spread over Saturday and Sunday, we haven’t had much luck sticking to Saturdays so we are mixing it up again. One thing to note is the line would actually be wrapped up very early on Sunday, the Milan kick off time has an insane 11:30AM slot. Granted we were undone by an early start last time out but, hey-ho, we are a glutton for punishment and Milan are one of the world’s form sides.
So here we go.
PICKS: Dortmund have quietly gone about their business in the Bundesliga since defeat at Augsburg early on, winning their last 4 matches. They travel to struggling Bielefeld who have only won one of their opening 5 games, losing their last 3. AWAY WIN
Chelsea have been a mixed bag so far this season, either inspired or indifferent. We hope for the former as they go to Burnley, a team who haven’t won in the Premier League since January, losing 4 of their opening 5 matches this campaign. The return of Hakim Ziyech for Chelsea should give the blues a big lift. AWAY WIN.
Inter have started this seasons Serie A campaign with 3 wins from 5 with their only defeat coming in the derby against in form Milan. Parma on the other hand have only picked up 1 solitary victory, losing 3 of their matches. Home advantage and general gulf in class should be the difference here. HOME WIN.
Other than the freak 7-2 reverse at Aston Villa, Liverpool’s form has been pretty ominous. Despite not being at their best, they have been pretty ruthless results wise and I would expect that to continue at home to West Ham. The hammers have had some decent results of late but travelling to Anfield is different kettle of fish. HOME WIN.
Milan are now a mighty 30 matches unbeaten in all competitions which stretches back to March, 22 of which have been victories. They are undoubtedly Europe’s form side and will look to cement their place at the top of Serie A with a win at Udinese. The hosts have only managed 1 win in their 5 games, losing the other 4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to do the business, currently the league’s top goalscorer at 39 years of age. Fancy him to WRAP UP THE ACCA early Sunday.
