11th January: Friday’s Football Accumulator – 9/1

Before another action packed weekend of football, we have taken a look at a few helpful tips from across Europe that can boost your Friday accumulator:

Friday 11th January

BST 18:00 Caen vs Lille 

Starting with Friday’s visitors, while Lille might be chasing down a 13-point buffer to PSG at the top of the Ligue 1 table, Christophe Galtier’s side appear in pole position to secure a return to Champions League football. Booking their spot in the last-32 of this year’s Coupe de France in midweek, Lille have now lost just one of their last six matches across all competitions and have now won their last two Ligue 1 away matches on the bounce. Given Caen’s woeful record at the Stade Michel d’Ornano, top scorer Nicolas Pepe will be looking to continue what is becoming a very eye-catching run of form. The 23-year-old has already bagged 12 goals this season, including four in his last five league appearances. While Caen may have managed to pick up a hard fought 1-0 win over Red Star in the Cup last Saturday, this Friday’s hosts have now managed to record just two wins in their last 22 matches on home soil. It is also worth noting that Lille have won both of the last two meetings against Caen by a score of 1-0.

Tip: Away win @ 23/20

19:45 Leeds vs Derby 

On paper, this has all the makings of a game that should produce plenty of chances at both ends of the pitch. After Leeds managed to pick up a 4-1 win at Pride Park back in August, Friday’s hosts have struggled with their form entering the New Year. Now holding just a two-point buffer at the top of the Championship table, the Whites have lost their last three matches on the bounce. A run of form that also saw them crash out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-1 loss to QPR over the weekend. Although Marcelo Bielsa’s side have remarkably found the net in each of their last 22 matches, fans around Elland Road have been concerned by Leeds’ recent defensive issues. The hosts have now failed to record a clean sheet since the end of November. As for the visitors, Frank Lampard finds his Derby side in almost an identical situation. While the Rams might hold a four-point buffer in the playoff positions, they have now managed to win just one of their last six matches across all competitions. Now without a clean sheet in their last five consecutive games, both Derby and Leeds have seen seven of their last 10 combined matches end with both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals.

Tip: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals @ 1/1

20:00 Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo 

Well, although many had Rayo Vallecano tipped to make an immediate return to the Segunda division this season, few would have expected their resurge entering 2019. Putting in yet another impressive showing and securing a 1-0 win over Real Valladolid last time out, Míchel’s side have now won their last two matches on the bounce and his side find their confidence at a season high. With the chance to mount a real push out of the relegation zone, Friday’s hosts should also be feeling confident due to their recent record at the Estadio de Vallecas. Vallecano are unbeaten in their last three La Liga home matches, scoring two or more in each of those outings. While Rayo might be enjoying an impressive turnaround, the same can not be said for Celta Vigo. Slumping to a 2-1 loss against Athletic Bilbao last weekend, the visitors have now failed to win any of their last three matches, scoring just a single goal on that run. More worrying, Miguel Cardoso’s men have now lost three of their last four matches on the road.

Tip: Home win @ 29/20
