30th April: Tuesday’s Football Accumulator – 14/1

With an action-packed Tuesday from all across Europe, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your midweek acca:

Tuesday 30th April

BST 18:00 Montpellier vs PSG

Starting with Tuesday’s visitors, while PSG’s 3-1 win over Monaco last week may have seen Les Parisiens successfully defend their Ligue 1 crown this season, Thomas Tuchel’s side have rather drastically started to stall at the back end of the campaign. Suffering a penalties defeat against Rennes in the final of the Coupe de France over the weekend, the former Borussia Dortmund coach has seen his side win just one of their last five matches across all competitions. A huge part of PSG’s struggles at the end of the year has come down to their form away from the Parc des Princes. The defending champions have lost their last three matches outside of Paris and have shipped two or more goals in each of those defeats. While PSG might be struggling of late, the same cannot be said about Montpellier. Coming off the back of a 3-1 win over Strasbourg last weekend, Tuesday’s hosts have won three of their last four contests and have one eye set on make a late push for the Europa League. Michel Der Zakarian’s side will also be boosted by their recent record against Les Parisiens on home soil. Montpellier are unbeaten in their last two matches against PSG at the Stade de la Mosson and also kept a clean sheet in both of those matchups. Led by leading goalscorer Andy Delort who has bagged four goals in his last six appearances, Montpellier should be confident of capitalising on a sluggish PSG side.

Tip: Montpellier draw no bet @ 13/8

19:45 Portsmouth vs Peterborough

While Portsmouth may be chasing a four-point deficit to Barnsley in the race to secure automatic promotion, the mood in Kenny Jacket’s camp will be on a high. Coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with fellow promotion hopefuls Sunderland last weekend, Tuesday’s hosts are enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run, a run that also saw them lift the EFL Trophy at Wembley last month. A huge part of Pompey’s push for a Championship return has been their continued performances at Fratton Park. Jacket’s side have won their last four matches on the South Coast, scoring two or more goals in each of those victories. One man really spearheading the Blues’ promotion push is the red-hot Brett Pitman. Portmsouth’s skipper has now bagged six goals in his last eight League One outings. Even more impressive, the 31-year-old has now scored in his last two consecutive matches at Fratton Park. With Peterborough coming off the back of a 3-0 hammering against Walsall over the weekend, Pitman should be confident of extending his goalscoring tally. Now sat four points adrift of the playoffs and failing to win any of their last three matches on the bounce, Darren Ferguson’s side have started to struggle at the end of the season. Winning just two of their last nine matches on the road and recording just three away clean sheets since October, we’re backing Pitman to find the net on Tuesday night.

Tip: Brett Pitman to score anytime @ 21/20

20:00 Tottenham vs Ajax

Coming off the back of a 1-0 loss at home to London rivals West Ham on Saturday, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have started to struggle with Harry Kane sat on the sidelines. Losing three of their last four matchups across all competitions, it will undoubtedly be their form in the final third giving Spurs’ Argentinian boss the biggest headache. Tuesday’s hosts have scored just a single goal in over 300 minutes of action and will also be hindered by the news that Son Heung-min will be forced to serve a one-match suspension. While Tottenham might be showing some issues at the end of the season, Ajax have continued to embark on what is quickly becoming a historic campaign. Now sat in pole position to secure their first Eredivisie title in five years, the former European giants have been arguably world football’s dark horse this year. Now picking up away victories and knocking out both Real Madrid and Juventus on route to the semi-final, Erik ten Hag is leading quite the revolution in Amsterdam. Now winning their last four matches across all competitions, the Dutch outfit are also unbeaten away in the Champions League since August 2016. One man who has continued to shine for Tuesday’s visitors is former Southampton playmaker, Dusan Tadic. The Serbian international has bagged 32 goals in all competitions this year, including a brace against Vittese last time out. With Ajax picking up away victories at the Allianz and the Bernabeu over the past month, we’re backing Ten Hag’s men to gain an early advantage on Tuesday night.

Tip: Ajax win @ 19/10
