3rd February: Sunday’s Football Accumulator – 20/1

With another Sunday filled with action from across England’s footballing tiers, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your weekend acca:

Sunday 3rd February

BST 14:00 Udinese vs Fiorentina 

Putting seven past Roma and booking their spot in the semi-final of this year’s Coppa Italia, the mood in Fiorentina’s camp couldn’t be any higher. Enjoying by far their brightest run of form entering the New Year, Stefano Pioli’s side are now unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions and will be firmly looking at a European push in the second half of the season. Now winning their last two matches on the bounce and scoring a staggering 11 goals, one man to watch for Sunday’s visitors will be leading goalscorer, Marco Benassi. The 24-year-old has now bagged two goals in his last two appearances. Pioli will also be especially impressed with his sides recent form away from the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Winning their last two away matches, Fiorentina are also unbeaten on the road since the start of October. While the Purples might be enjoying a stellar run of form, the same can not be said for Udinese. Suffering a 4-0 loss against Sampdoria last weekend, Sunday’s hosts have now recorded just one win in their last eight Serie A matches. Quickly freefalling into a relegation battle, we’re backing another tough afternoon for Udinese.

Tip: Away @ 11/10

14:05 Leicester City vs Manchester United 

Starting with Sunday’s hosts, while Leicester did shock the Premier League by picking up a 1-1 draw at Anfield in midweek, it does not fully cover what has been a worrying start to the New Year. Now failing to win any of their last four Premier League matches, their worst run under Claude Puel, the Foxes have now find themselves sat outside the top-half of the table. Another key area concerning the former Southampton boss will be their recent form at the King Power Stadium. Leicester have lost their last two top-flight home matches against Southampton and Cardiff. Sadly for Puel, they will host a revitalized Manchester United side on Sunday. While they could only pick up a 2-2 draw against Burnley last time out, the Reds are unbeaten in their opening nine games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. One man who is really relishing the Norwegian’s arrival is midfielder Paul Pogba. Once again finding the net in midweek, the France international has now bagged six goals in his last six Premier League appearances.

Tip: Paul Pogba to score anytime @ 15/8

14:30 Augsburg vs Mainz 

While Augsburg may have managed to secure a mid-table finish in the Bundesliga last season, things could not be going any worse for Manuel Baum’s side this time around. Slumping to a 2-0 loss against Borussia Mönchengladbach last weekend, Sunday’s hosts hold just a one-point buffer over the relegation zone and their form entering 2019 has been a huge concern for fans at the WWK Arena. Losing their last three league matches on the bounce and still looking for their first win since the 27th of October. Failing to win any of their last 10 Bundesliga outings, it looks set to be another tough afternoon for Augsburg. With Freiburg winning their last two matches on the bounce, Christian Streich’s men will have their sights set on a European push in the second half of the season. Yet to be beaten in Germany’s top-tier since the turn of the New Year, Mainz have also now lost just one of their last five matches on the road, with that single defeat coming against top-four contenders RB Leipzig.

Tip: Away win @ 12/5
