With the inaugural UEFA Nations League kicking off this week, teams will be looking to get the new campaign off with a win while battles in the Brazilian Serie A really start to heat up. On that note, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your midweek acca:
Thursday 6th September
19:45 BST Germany vs France
Two sides who endured very different summers in Russia, Didier Deschamps’ newly crowned World Champions France will travel to the Allianz Arena filled with confidence. Lifting a title for the first time in 20 years, The Blues have been in remarkable form over the past 12 months and have now only lost on of their last 19 outings in all competitions. Winning their last four on the bounce and also now unbeaten in their last three meetings against Germany, one man to watch for Deschamps’ side will be 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe. Crowned as the Young Player of the Tournament after scoring four goals at the finals, the PSG man has also already scored four in Ligue 1 and will fancy his chances of testing a very questionable Germany side. Traveling to Russia as the defending champions, Germany slumped to an embarring 2-0 loss to South Korea that saw them finish bottom of Group F. Now losing four of their last six in all competitions, Joachim Low’s side have now failed to win any of their last three matches at the Allianz Arena and their confidence is at an all-time low.
Tip: Away win @ 9/5
19:45 Wales vs Ireland
Two sides looking to rebuild after missing out on this summers finals, new Wales boss Ryan Giggs will be desperate to impress on his home debut since Chris Coleman’s departure. Falling to a 1-0 loss to Ireland the last time the two nations met, Wales will be looking for Real Madrid man Gareth Bale to lead the line. Recently becoming his nations leading goalscorer, the 29-year-old already has three in La Liga. While Giggs may have only seen one win in his first three matches in charge, The Reds should fancy their chances against an Ireland side who have struggled since their 5-1 hammering at the hands of Denmark back in November 2017. Now failing to score in three of their last five in all competitions, they have also failed to register a single goal in their last three matches away from Dublin. While we do believe that a packed Cardiff City stadium and an inform Gareth Bale will help Wales to the win, this fixture famously produces low scoring outcomes. In fact, five of the last seven meetings between Ireland and Wales have seen fewer than two goals.
Tip: Home win and under 2.5 goals @ 9/4
23:00 Santos vs Gremio
Well, although it was a very difficult start to the new campaign for Santos, Thursday’s hosts have done an impressive job of bouncing back. Coming off the back of a very impressive performance in their 3-0 win over Vasco da Gama last week, The Black and Whites have now only lost one of their last five outings and have now won their last three matches at Estádio Urbano Caldeira without conceding a single goal in return. One man to watch for Santos is their in-form forward Gabriel Barbosa. The 22-year-old grabbed a hat-trick against Vasco last week and now has four in his last three. Coming up against a Gremio side who are gaining a reputation for their poor form on the road, Barbosa will fancy his chances of adding to his tally. Thursday’s visitors have now won just one of their last six matches away from home, a run stemming back to the start of June.
Tip: Home win @ 5/4
