Weekend acca predictions: Five teams to back across Europe in our 20/1 acca
- Recommended bets:
- Mainz to beat Hoffenheim
- Luton to beat Swansea
- Mallorca to beat Elche
- Strasbourg to beat Brest
- Both teams to score in Real Betis vs Real Madrid
There is plenty of action across Europe’s top divisions this weekend and we have picked out a fivefold acca featuring games from Spain’s LaLiga, Germany’s Bundesliga, France's Ligue 1 and the English Championship, which pays out at 20/1.
Mainz are on a three-game winning streak in the Bundesliga and should fancy their chances at home to a relegation-threatened Hoffenheim, while goals look on the menu in LaLiga as Real Betis entertain a Real Madrid outfit hoping to respond from Thursday’s Copa Del Rey first-leg defeat to title rivals Barcelona.
Recommended five-fold: Mainz, Mallorca, Luton and Strasbourg all to win with both teams to score in Real Betis vs Real Madrid at 20/1.
Mainz have found their goalscoring touch in the Bundesliga of late and they should be oozing with confidence after their recent upturn in form, which has featured three straight wins over Augsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach.
The 05ers have racked up 10 goals during that period and that firepower should make them too hot to handle for Hoffenheim, who sit third from bottom in Germany’s top flight and are at real risk of relegation.
While Mainz have been firing and are now up to eighth in the Bundesliga, Hoffenheim are in a sorry state having taken just two points from their last 12 league games and suffering five straight defeats.
The pressure is mounting on Swansea boss Russell Martin after Monday’s 1-1 draw at home to Rotherham, which left the Swans with only one victory from their last seven Championship clashes.
And matters are unlikely to improve at playoff-chasing Luton, whose only two defeats in their last 12 league games have come against leaders Burnley and a rejuvenated West Brom.
Swansea have won only one of their last 11 league games on the road and, having suffered back-to-back away defeats to nil at Sheffield United and Blackburn, may be found wanting on their visit of Kenilworth Road.
Home is where the heart is for Mallorca and Javier Aguirre’s side should have no problem overcoming LaLiga’s basement boys Elche on their own patch.
Mallorca have won each of their last five home league games, which includes wins to nil over Madrid rivals Atletico and Real, as well as a thrilling 4-2 victory over Villarreal.
And home comforts should see Los Piratas past struggling visitors Elche, who look all but down having claimed just nine points from their opening 23 games.
Elche have lost eight of their 11 away league games, scoring just seven goals, and will not get any sympathy from a Mallorca side that are in red-hot form on home turf.
Strasbourg have moved out of the Ligue 1 relegation places with seven points from their last four games and they could heap the pressure on third-bottom Brest.
Strasbourg have won their last two home league games against Montpellier and Angers and should make it a hat-trick of successes at the expense of an out-of-form Brest, who have been troubled on their travels.
The visitors have won only one of their last 10 league outings and have offered little resistance away from home, scoring just twice in failing to win any of their last six on the road.
Real Betis have got their European qualification hopes back on track with three straight wins in LaLiga and they may fancy their chances against a busy Real Madrid, who were beaten 1-0 at home to Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey first leg on Thursday.
That said, Real are blessed with an array of attacking talent and an entertaining contest is what appeals most with both teams to score representing the best value.
Betis have seen both teams score in each of their last five league games, which includes a 2-1 defeat at home to Barcelona in February, while Real Madrid have conceded in five of their last seven away games in all competitions.
