September 23rd: Saturday’s Football Accumulator – 6/1

With the Premier League once again stealing most of the headlines this weekend, we are set for another stacked schedule from across Europe. So, for those of you looking to place a Saturday acca, we have found a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Saturday September 23rd

BST 13:00 Modena vs Lecco

Although Modena might have been disappointed after missing out on a play-off ticket last season, Saturday’s hosts have come roaring back this time around. Opening proceedings on August 26th as they claimed a 1-0 victory at home against Ascoli, Paolo Bianco’s men have their sights firmly set on mounting a genuine top-two charge this season. Heading into September’s international break with an eye-catching 2-0 victory at home against Pisa, the Canaries have collected 10 points from their first four Serie B appearances. It should also be noted, along with winning back-to-back showdowns at the Stadio Alberto Braglia by an aggregate score of 3-0, Modena have continued to gain a reputation for their rugged performances on home soil. It is worth highlighting, the one-time Juventus coach has not seen his squad suffer just a single second-tier defeat in front of their own supporters over the past 11 months. While Lecco might have shocked many as they clinched a Serie B return this season, Saturday’s guests know that they face a major uphill battle this time around. Last seen marking their return from September’s international break with a routine 2-0 loss at home against Brescia, Luciano Foschi’s men are set for another stern examination here. Opening proceedings earlier in the month with an action-packed 4-3 loss against Catanzaro, the Lombardy-based outfit appear destined for a relegation scrap this season.

Tip: Modena win @ 8/11

15:00 Luton vs Wolves

While Wolves might have put in a spirited performance at home against Liverpool last weekend, Gary O’Neil’s side would have been disappointed by their second-half collapse. Eventually getting hit with a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the former Premier League champions, many around the Midlands are fearing that their side are facing another relegation scrap this time around. Heading into September’s international break with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace, the former Bournemouth boss has seen his side lose four of their opening five top-flight appearances. Desperate to claim a welcomed boost on Saturday afternoon, Wolves will be calling on the red-hot Hee-Chan Hwang to spearhead their charge here. Despite bagging what turned out to be a consolation strike against Liverpool last weekend, the South Korean international has already notched three Premier League goals since opening the 2023/24 campaign. On the flip side, while Luton might have enjoyed a real fairytale story last season, the Hatters have failed to find any kind of stability this time around. Last seen putting in a toothless display as they suffered a 1-0 loss away at Fulham, Saturday’s hosts have lost each of their opening four Premier League appearances. Opening proceedings with a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Brighton on August 12th, Rob Edwards’ squad face what is a must-win showdown here. Already shipping 10 top-flight strikes, Hwang will be looking to test Luton’s leaky defence this weekend.

Tip: Hee-Chan Hwang to have over 0.5 shots on target @ 11/10

17:30 Brentford vs Everton

Disappointed on their return from September’s international break last weekend as they were eventually hit with a 1-0 defeat away at Newcastle, Brentford will certainly be seeking an immediate response here. However, suffering just a single defeat from any of their opening six appearances across all competitions, Thomas Frank’s men have continued to gain a string of plaudits. With their sights firmly set on claiming another top-half finish this season, Saturday’s hosts should be relishing a return to west London here. Extending on their EFL Cup adventure last month as they edged past Newport, the Bees should be smelling a golden chance this weekend. With their eye-catching start to the 2023/24 campaign highlighted by a 3-0 romp against local rivals Fulham on August 19th, Brentford will be excited by Everton’s arrival to the capital on Saturday evening. While the Toffees might have just about clung to their Premier League status last season, Sean Dyche’s side find themselves at the heart of another public struggle. With mounting pressure on the former Burnley boss, the Blues have collected just a single point from any of their opening five top-flight contests. Dealing with some glaring issues behind the scenes at Goodison Park, Everton are also seeking a much-needed clinical edge in the final third. Drawing a blank in four of their five Premier League appearances so far this season, we are backing a home victory this weekend.
