20th October: Saturdays Football Accumulator – 12/1

Tom Dunstan in Football Accumulators 19 Oct 2018


With the international break finally coming to an end, teams from across Europe’s top tiers will return to action this weekend. On that note, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost you Saturday acca:

14:30 BST Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund 

After finding the net against England in midweek, on loan Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer is now statistically the most in-form forward across Europe’s top leagues. With Bayern Munich so famously struggling to defend their Bundesliga crown, the Yellow and Blacks have leaped on their rivals struggles and now sit three points clear at the top of the table. Yet to be beaten in any competition so far this season, a huge part of Lucien Favre’s push has come down to the success of the Barcelona loanee. Scoring three goals in his two appearances over the international break, Alcacer now has 10 in his last six for both club and country. Sitting alone at the top of the Bundesliga goalscoring charts, the 25-year-old should fancy his chances of carrying on his impressive record on Saturday. While Stuttgart did enjoy a Europa League push last season, it has been a woeful start for the hosts. Slumping to a 3-1 loss to Hannover prior to the international break, Stuttgart currently sit bottom of the table and have recorded just one win in any competition so far.

Tip: Paco Alcacer to score anytime @ 11/8

15:00 Bournemouth vs Southampton

Enjoying a very bright start to the new Premier League season, Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side will be relishing the arrival of their bitter south coast rivals on Saturday. Picking up a very impressive 4-0 win over Watford prior to the international break, the Cherries are now enjoying a three-match winning run in all competitions and there are whispers of a Europa League push circling around the Vitality Stadium. Also yet to be beaten at home this year, Howe will be incredibly impressed by his sides form in the final third. Scoring nine in their three-match winning run, no team outside of the Premier League’s top four hold a better attacking record than Bournemouth. As for Mark Hughes’ Saints side, after only avoiding the drop on the final game of last season, it appears this could be another tough year for Southampton. Slumping to a 3-0 loss at home to Chelsea, the visitors have now lost their last three Premier League outings on the bounce. More worrying for Hughes’ side, they have failed to find the net in any of those three defeats.

Tip: Home win @ 21/20

15:00 Wolves vs Watford

After running away with the Championship last season, Wolves are arguably the most well-equipped side to be promoted to the Premier League. Breaking the bank this summer and bringing in a host of new signings, it has been yet another very impressive start for Saturday’s hosts. Picking up a 1-0 win away at Selhurst Park before the international break, Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are yet to be beaten in the league since the middle of August and Wolves are still yet to be bested at Molineux. With Matt Doherty picking up the PFA Player of the Month, it has been the Oranges defensive record that has really caught the eye. Aside from conceding one at Old Trafford last month, the hosts have now kept a clean sheet in their other six matches in all competitions. As for Watford, while the Hornets may have also enjoyed a bright start to the campaign, they have shown some recent signs of a struggle. Losing 4-0 at home to Bournemouth before the international break, Javi Garcia’s side are without a win in their last five, losing four of those outings.

Tip: Home win to nil @ 7/4
