With the relentless schedule rolling onto Tuesday night, we have another string of eye-catching meetings from across Europe. So, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.
Tuesday 9th March
BST 19:00 Mansfield Town vs Cheltenham Town
After backing Cheltenham over the weekend, we’re once again looking at a Cheltenham side who find themselves enjoying a real purple patch. Eventually claiming a 3-2 win against Port Vale on home soil, the Robins are still tipped as a leading contender in the automatic promotion chase. Opening up the midweek fixtures still holding a one-point buffer at the top of the League Two table, Michael Duff’s men have really bounced back from that defeat against Bradford last month. Now in the midst of an eye-catching four-match winning run, a run highlighted by a 1-0 victory against second-place Cambridge, it should also be noted that Cheltenham hold the best-defensive record in England’s fourth-tier. Smelling a golden chance in midweek, Duff’s men have also gained a real reputation for their performances on the road. Last seen away from the Jonny-Rocks Stadium picking up a 2-0 win against Scunthorpe, the Robins have also won each of their last four straight contests outside of Gloucestershire. More impressive, Tuesday’s guests are unbeaten on their travels since the middle of December. On the flip side, while Cheltenham are flying high, Mansfield find themselves in the midst of a real struggle. Freefalling down the table, the Stags were hit with a 2-0 loss against Barrow over the weekend and they have now lost five of their last six League Two matchups. The fourth-tier strugglers have also managed to win just one of their previous eight matchups across all formats.
Tip: Cheltenham Town win @ 8/5
19:45 Portsmouth vs Sunderland
Starting with Tuesday’s guests, putting in another professional display over the weekend, Sunderland really appear to have found their feet under new boss Lee Johnson. Eventually picking up a 2-0 victory against Rochdale on home soil, the former Bristol City boss has his sights set on guiding the Black Cats back to the Championship. Knowing that maximum points on the South Coast in midweek could move them within touching distance of the automatic spots, they have really started their promotion charge. Unbeaten in their last seven matchups across all formats and winning six of those appearances, Sunderland have also gained a reputation for their performances in the final third. Bagging themselves a pair of goals against Rochdale once again over the weekend, they have recorded 15 goals on their unbeaten run, including 3-0 and 4-1 victories against Burton and Doncaster. Picking themselves up a hugely impressive 16 points from their last six League One matchups, there is no doubt that Johnson’s men will make the trip to Fratton Park confident of laying down another maker. Suffering a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Northampton over the weekend, Portsmouth have suffered back-to-back League One defeats and have recorded just a single win from their last six matchups on the bounce. More worrying, Tuesday’s hosts have won just one of their last six contests on home soil, a run that saw them get hit for four by Hull back in January.
Tip: Sunderland win @ 13/8
19:45 Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla
While Borussia Dortmund might have eventually fallen to that dramatic 4-2 defeat against Bayern Munich over the weekend, BVB should be confident of finishing off their Champions League job in midweek. Shocking many across Europe when they made the trip out to Spain last month, caretaker boss Edin Terzić saw his squad land a hugely impressive 3-2 win on foreign soil. Sat in pole position to book their spot in the quarter-finals, there is no doubt that fans around rural Germany will be calling on a red-hot Erling Haaland to once again spearhead their charge on Tuesday night. Once again bagging himself a brace against Bayern last time out, the 20-year-old has only continued to break a string of records since making the move to Signal-Iduna-Park. Along with recording another pair of goals in the first-leg out in Spain last month, the Norweigan superstar has racked up a staggering 35 goals for club and country so far this season. Smelling a real chance to extend on his tally in midweek, it should also be noted that Haaland has landed himself 12 strikes since returning from the festive break. On the flip side, along with needing a real turnaround out in Germany this week, Sevilla find themselves enduring a real worrying spell. Hit with a shock 2-1 defeat against La Liga relegation scrappers Elche, Tuesday’s guests have lost four of their last five matchups, including three defeats on the spin.
