15th September: Wednesday’s Football Accumulator – 6/1

With the Champions League making its return in midweek, we have a stacked Tuesday schedule from across the footballing globe. On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flutter, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Wednesday September 15th 

BST 00:30 Toronto FC vs Inter Miami 

For our first Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to the MLS and what has become a high-flying Inter Miami side. While the Herons might have struggled to find their feet after bringing in new boss Phil Neville over the summer, Wednesday’s guests now find themselves in the midst of a stellar purple patch. With the mood in their camp likely to be at a season-high, the former Manchester United defender once again saw his side put in another rugged display over the weekend. Welcoming Columbus Crew to the DRV PNK Stadium, Miami landed a deserved 1-0 victory on home soil and they now have their sights set on clinching a Final Series spot this time around. Knowing that another victory in midweek could skyrocket them into the top-seven, Neville’s side have collected 13 points from just their last five MLS matchups. More impressive, it should also be noted that the Herons have lost just one of their last 10 straight contests, a run that stems all the way back to July 22nd. Landing a 3-1 win when they faced off against their midweek opponents last month, Miami should be smelling another chance to lay down a marker here. On the flip side, while Wednesday’s guests might be flying high, Toronto find themselves in the midst of an MLS nightmare. Last seen getting hit with a dreadful 2-0 defeat away at Cincinnati, the former champions have lost each of their last five straight contests on the spin. More worrying, last year’s silver medalists have managed to muster just a pair of points from any of their last eight attempts, a run that stems back to the end of July.

Tip: Inter Miami draw no bet @ 6/5

19:45 Stoke City vs Barnsley 

While Stoke would have been hugely disappointed to have been hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Fulham before heading into the international break, the Potters managed to make an immediate return to winning ways over the weekend. Last seen on Saturday afternoon picking up a 2-1 victory against Huddersfield on home soil, the midweek hosts have their sights set on clinching a play-off spot this time around. Making a string of improvements since bringing in Head Coach Michael O’Neill, they know that victory on Wednesday could see them skyrocket their way to the top of the Championship standings. Managing to extend on their League Cup adventure with a deserved 2-0 win against League One outfit Doncaster last month, the former Northern Ireland boss has seen his side win four of their last five contests across all formats. More impressive, with just a single defeat to their name since opening the 2021/22 campaign, Stoke have also mustered 13 points so far this season. Likewise, it should also be noted that including that 2-1 win against Huddersfield over the weekend, O’Neill’s men have won all five of their competitive contests at the Bet365 Stadium. As for the visitors, while Barnsley might have managed to clinch a stunning play-off spot last season, the Reds have failed to keep up that momentum this time around. Watching now-former boss Valérien Ismaël make the move to West Brom over the summer, the Yorkshire outfit were last seen getting blown away on their travels. Hit with a 3-0 drumming against Bournemouth on Saturday, Barnsley have failed to win any of their last four matchups across all formats.

Tip: Stoke City win @ 3/4

20:00 Manchester City vs RB Leipzig 

After suffering May’s Champions League final defeat against Chelsea, Manchester City’s wait for European glory only goes on. However, despite opening the new campaign with another shock 1-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham on the road, Pep Guardiola’s side have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. Including entering the international break with back-to-back 5-0 romps against Norwich and Arsenal, the defending Premier League champions should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Breaking the bank over the summer and bringing in England ace Jack Grealish, the former Barcelona boss saw his side pick up some perfect momentum as they landed a 1-0 win away at Leicester on Saturday. Doing a great job of sharing the goalscoring burden around their squad and already with nine players finding the net while on top-flight duties, it should also be noted that the Sky Blues have recorded a clean sheet in each of their last three straight victories. As for Wednesday’s guests, while RB Leipzig might have gained plenty of plaudits from across Europe over the past few years, the Whites are in the midst of what feels like a real transition. Watching now-former boss Julian Nagelsmann make the move to rivals Bayern Munich over the summer, they were last seen over the weekend getting hit with a hammering against the defending German champions. Hit with a 4-1 defeat on home soil, new Head Coach Jesse Marsch has seen his squad only show a host of issues since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Including a 1-0 loss at the hands of Mainz on the opening weekend, Leipzig have lost three of their last four matchups across all formats and face a stern test at the Etihad here.
