Wednesday night offers another batch of football fixtures for us to peruse, including fixtures from the Champions League and the Championship. We’ve analysed the matches and put together a fivefold BTTS accumulator for Wednesday 25th October.
Newcastle United vs Borussia Dortmund @ 4/6
Another thriller at St James’ Park? PSG weren’t prepared for the Newcastle onslaught as they were hammered 4-1 in the Geordies first home Champions League match for a generation. We can expect a similar blood and thunder performance against German giants Borussia Dortmund, who are yet to score in Europe but played out a 4-2 thriller with Union Berlin in the Bundesliga recently. They can both find the net here.
PSG vs AC Milan @ 4/6
The other match-up in Group F looks like a thriller. PSG need to bounce back after that Newcastle defeat and they face a Milan side that have so far played out two 0-0 draws in Europe. Against PSG however, with all the attacking quality on show, they are going to have to come out and play, and following a damaging weekend defeat to Juventus, only a win here will satisfy the demanding Milan ultras. We should see a far more expansive game.
Bristol City vs Ipswich Town @ 4/7
Ipswich have been one of, if not the, most entertaining teams in the Championship this season. Goals have been easy to come by at both ends, and both teams have scored in four of their last five fixtures. They travel to a Bristol City side coming off the back of a 1-0 win over Coventry, while three of their last four have ended BTTS Yes.
Stoke City vs Leeds United @ 8/13
Stoke overcame a tricky Sunderland side at the weekend with a 2-1 win and four of their last six Championship fixtures have ended BTTS Yes. Meanwhile, Leeds United, one of the finest attacking teams at this level, came from 2-0 down to beat Norwich City 3-2 and three of their last four matches have seen both teams find the net.
Preston North End vs Southampton @ 8/13
Both teams have scored in eight of Preston’s 12 matches so far, while that total is nine out of 12 (75%) in Southampton matches. This match-up should lead to an open encounter at Deepdale, with goals at both ends. Two top teams meet here, and we should enjoy an expansive match as a result.
