April 29th: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 6/1

With another stacked weekend schedule from across Europe on our hands, we look set for a string of eye-catching affairs. For those of you that are looking to stick on a Saturday acca, we have found a handful pf noteworthy tips that offer some great value to your flutter.

Saturday April 29th

BST 14:30 Koln vs Freiburg

Although Sunderland might have only made their Championship return this season, Tony Mowbray’s side are enjoying what has been a remarkable second-tier flurry. Only continuing to shine since returning from March’s international break, it is no secret that the former Blackburn boss has a famous play-off spot at the top of his agenda in 2023. Gaining a string of plaudits and riding what has been a stellar wave of momentum, the Black Cats find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Looking to take a giant step towards securing a top-six finish this weekend, Saturday’s hosts are now unbeaten in each of their last seven Championship appearances. Likewise, last seen laying down another marker as they clinched a shock 2-1 victory away at West Brom, Sunderland have also collected 10 points from just their last four second-tier outings. Smelling the chance to make a statement at the Stadium of Light, Mowbray’s men will be relishing Watford’s arrival here. While the Hornets might have opened the 2022/23 campaign tipped as one of the leading contenders to book an immediate Premier League return, Chris Wilder’s side are enduring a public Championship struggle. Last seen getting hit with a worrying 1-0 loss away at Hull, the ex-Sheffield United boss has seen his side win just one of their last seven second-tier appearances. Hit with defeats against the likes of Cardiff and Huddersfield on their extended struggle, we are expecting a home victory for the play-off hopefuls here.

Tip: Both teams to score @ 4/5

15:00 Sunderland vs Watford

While Freiburg might have been frustrated after watching their European adventure come to an end at the hands of Italian giants Juventus last month, Saturday’s guests are enjoying yet another domestic romp. Last seen putting in a thumping display as they stormed their way to a 4-0 victory at home against Schalke, Christian Streich’s men are sat in pole position to secure a famous Champions League spot in 2023. Likewise, punching their DFP Pokal semi-final tick on April 4th as they secured a stellar 2-1 win away at defending champions Bayern Munich, the Reds have now won three of their last four meetings against Bundesliga opposition. Receiving a string of praise from across Germany this season, Freiburg will be looking to make another top-flight statement here. However, while Koln might have entered March’s international break looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap, Saturday’s hosts have come roaring back in some style. Putting in a season-best display last weekend as they claimed a 3-1 victory away at Hoffenheim, the Billy Goats are unbeaten in each of their previous four Bundesliga appearances. With their recent resurge highlighted by another 3-1 win against Augsburg on April 8th, Steffen Baumgart’s side will be looking to upset Freiburg’s Champions League charge here. It is also worth noting, Koln have seen four of their last five Bundesliga showdowns finish with both teams finding the net.

Tip: Sunderland win @ 19/20

18:00 Bastia vs Amiens

While Bastia might have been disappointed after only collecting a single point away at Dijon, Saturday’s hosts still have a play-off spot at the top of their wishlist in 2023. Continuing to shine on either side of March’s international break, the Blues have now lost just one of their last nine Ligue 2 appearances – a run that stems back to February 11th. With just their goal difference keeping them outside the top-four, Regis Brouard’s men have also really impressed with their extended flurry on home soil. Last seen at the Stade Armand-Cesari storming their way to a routine 3-0 romp against Annecy earlier in the month, Bastia have won each of their previous three contests on home soil. In fact, with their hometown romp underlined by an action-packed 3-2 victory against fellow play-off contenders Sochaux on April 1st, it should be noted that Brouard’s side have bagged 10 goals on that three-match winning run in Corsica. On the flip side, while Amiens might still hold a commanding six-point buffer over the drop zone, the Unicorns are enduring what has become an extended blip. Putting in another downbeat display last weekend as they slumped to a 2-0 loss at home against Valenciennes, Saturday’s gusts have now lost five of their previous six Ligue 2 appearances. Likewise, with just a single victory to their name since back on March 4th, Philippe Hinschberger’s side have also continued on a nightmare run away from the Stade de la Licorne.
