22- ACCA CRACKER - NEW CAP 1024

We’re delving deep into the stats and form for Thursday night’s football action with two Champions fixtures, France’s Ligue Un is also back and Spain’s La Liga gets things back underway as well. Let’s have a look then and where we’ve dug up some value in the markets.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Blackburn v Middlesbrough: Over 2.5 Goals

Blackburn’s form has been very disappointing of late and another bad result here will likely see them losing their third-placed position in the Championship table. Of their last five league games they’ve won two and lost three. However, at Ewood Park they’ve been very impressive with six wins and just one loss over their last seven home league clashes, scoring nine goals over their last five and conceding five.

Middlesbrough have won four and lost one over their five most recently-placed Championship fixtures and have been scoring plenty with 12 goals to their name over those five matches. On their away jaunts, they’ve won three and lost two, scoring 10 while conceding seven. With eight of their last 10 combined home/away games seeing Over 2.5 goals, and both scoring plenty of late, we have to go with the value here in the Overs price.

Marseille v Toulouse: Marseille to Win to Nil

TV: BT Sport 1, 8pm

Marseille’s season had started off quite well but a few bad results in October meant they’ve fallen a little off the pace and they’ll be looking to get back up the table here. Over their last five competitive games they’ve won two, lost two and drawn one and share the same results over their last five in the league. At the Stade Velodrome, they’ve also won two, drawn one and lost two.

Toulouse’s season hasn’t exactly been mighty, winning just four of their 15 league games thus far and have won just one of their seven away Ligue Un fixtures. Of their last five in the league they’ve won one, drawn one and lost three while on their recent travels have drawn one and lost four, scoring just three goals while conceding 10. Marseille have kept five clean sheets against Toulouse over their last six visits west and we’re getting a good price here for them to Win to Nil once again.

Nice v Lens: Under 2.5 Goals

TV: BT ESPN, 8pm

Lens come into this one five points behind PSG but the Parisians are in action on Wednesday and should romp home to an easy win when hosting Strasbourg, so, they’re likely to be eight points behind here meaning a slip up would be a disaster. They’ve won all five of their most recent league fixtures but their away trips have seen them winning just two, drawing two and losing one, scoring just four goals while conceding three.

Nice have won two and drawn three of their last five in the league while at the Allianz Riviera have won two, drawn one and lost two, scoring five and conceding five. Hard to see this one going down as a classic, Over 2.5 Goals has only been seen in two of their last 10 combined home/away games and with both averaging just 0.86 and 1.14 goals in their home/away games we have to back Unders here. 

Blackpool v Sheffield United: Sheffield United to Win

TV: Sky Sports Football, 8.15pm

Blackpool are in a spot of bother, they’ve won just two of their last 10 league games and find themselves just three points off the bottom Championship position. Of their last five league fixtures, they’ve lost two and drawn three while at Bloomfield Road have won one of their last five league games played there, drawing one and losing three, failing to score in three of those five games.

The Blades have won four and lost one of their last five league games and share the same stats on their recent league travels with six goals scored and just two conceded. With the hosts struggling for goals we can only see an away win for this one.

Atletico Madrid v Elche: Both Teams to Score

TV: Premier Sports 1, 8.30pm

While a ball hasn’t been kicked under the La Liga banner since early November, both teams have been in Copa del Rey action. Of course, many Atletico players were in World Cup action but neither side should be rusty coming into this one. The hosts are massive favourites here and have won this fixture without conceding in six of their last seven meetings, however, we need to note that recent form suggests the visitors should make a dent. 

Atletico have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last five at home in La Liga and have conceded in all seven of their most recent home league fixtures. Elche have drawn two and lost three of their last five on their league travels, scoring six goals over those five games. Precedence suggests Los Franjiverdes won’t score here but the hosts have been leaking goals at home and the visitors have gotten six over their last five on the road. The value here then is in backing a Both Teams to Score bet.
