Germany and Scotland are the focus for our Wednesday night football accumulato here. We’ve gone through the best of the fixtures on offer and found an play brimming with value that could brighten up your day.
We’ll be looking at Rangers taking on St Johnstone and Ross County entertaining Celtic in Scotland. Meanwhile in Germany, Borussia Dortmund welcome Greuther Furth to town, but first up we have Bayer Leverkusen hosting Hoffenheim.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
Leverkusen had been enjoying quite the run until recently, winning five from six games in all competitions, However, they have since lost both of their most recent matches – a 1-0 away defeat to Ferencvaros in the Europa League and a 5-2 away loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. Their home form is decent though, winning four and losing one of their last five in all competitions and in the Bundesliga they’ve won three and lost two.
Hoffenheim have won four of their last five games, but away from home have just succeeded twice of their last five, losing the other three. The hosts are the favourites here, but we have to look at goals as both teams are grabbing plenty of late.
Over 3.5 goals has been witnessed in three of the home side’s five most recent matches on home turf in all competitions and also came up in four of the underdog’s five most recent away games. Whoever takes the three points can close the gap on Dortmund above them in second, so we can be sure they’ll be going at it here.
Dortmund’s form of late is a bit of a yo-yo. Of their five most recent games, they’ve lost two, drawn one and lost two. At the Westfalenstadion they’ve won three and lost two in all competitions and in the Bundesliga, they’ve won four of their last five.
They’re massive, massive favourites here against a Greuther Furth side who have lost four of their last five Bundesliga games and on their travels, they have lost every single one of their away league games.

When a match appears to be so one-sided it can be hard to find value, but there’s something here that much of the betting public seem to have missed. Yes, the hosts are strong at home, but they’ve conceded in all but one of their eight home league games this season. For their part, Furth have netted at least one in six of their eight on the road. That means Dortmund to win with both teams finding the net has some mighty value.
Rangers’ well-oiled machine keeps bounding onwards towards another league title. They’ve only tasted defeat once so far over their 17 league games and are enjoying an undefeated run of five wins and three draws at home this season.
St Johnstone have been really struggling for goals of late, scoring just one over their five most previous games in all competitions and in the league they have netted just two away goals all season. This has Rangers to win without conceding written all over it.
Ross Country could throw a spanner into the works here, their overall form has been improving of late and they are now unbeaten over their four most recent games – winning two and drawing two. At Victoria Park they haven’t been beaten in their last three, winning two and drawing one. Their scoring record is good too and over their seven most recent home games, they’ve netted 13 times.
Celtic’s away record has seen them winning all five of their most recent Premiership. However, they’ve only kept two clean sheets over that period and indeed, of their eight away games this season Ange Postecoglou’s side has only kept those two clean sheets. With the Staggies in robust goal-scoring form, coupled with Celtic’s winning form, we have to have a nibble of Celtic To Win And Both Teams To Score here.
