Midweek Accumulator Tip – 1st & 2nd May

Hopefully our Tuesday night accumulator proved to be a winner, but if not then there’s always this rather enticing fourfold bet which involves games taking place on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Normally, I would have tried to provide you with an acca selection for both nights, but due to the fact that there are so few games on Thursday, I felt it better to combine the two Europa League semifinal ties with the Champions League semi and a crucial match up from the Championship. The latter with significant implications in the race for playoff places.

That game takes place at the Liberty Stadium and sees in form Swansea City who have lost just one of the last five, taking on a Derby side who are also in decent form after winning three of their last four to push themselves onto the brink of qualifying for the playoff places.

However, the big action across the two days comes in Europe with first up Liverpool’s trip to face Barcelona in the Nou Camp. The last team to beat Barcelona, with Lionel Messi in the team, at the Nou Camp in the knockout phase of the Champions League, was Liverpool but the Reds face a huge task against the home side in what should be a cracking encounter.

Then on Thursday night, the action is focused on the Europa League with Arsenal facing Valencia in the first semifinal at the Emirates Stadium while in Germany Eintracht Frankfurt, the surprise package in this year’s tournament, will face Chelsea in what should be another exciting game.

I’ve put together my four tips for these games and they’ve provided us with some great value odds, so let’s take a look at how I see each of the games going.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 1st May

Swansea City v Derby County – Draw

These two teams collide with Swansea City finding some decent form having picked up 10 points from the last 15 available and being unbeaten in their last three, while Derby have picked up 10 from the last twelve, unbeaten in their last four and the Rams have pushed themselves into the final playoff spot in the Championship in sixth place, ahead of Middlesbrough on goal difference and four ahead of Bristol City, who like Derby have two games remaining (although they played Millwall last night). There are lots of similarities between these two sides and Swansea having home advantage makes me feel that they won’t lose this game, but similarly, Derby are in good form and with so much at stake, I feel a good result here is going to be huge for them, especially after that stunning win at Bristol City at the weekend. That said, I can’t quite see Derby landing another win here, so instead I am backing the draw.

Barcelona v Liverpool – Home Win

The last time Barcelona lost at home in the Champions League knockout stage, with Lionel Messi in the team, was when Liverpool beat them many moons ago. The Reds come to the Nou Camp knowing a win here would give them a huge advantage in the second leg at Anfield. But Barcelona at home are about as tough a game as Liverpool will have faced in many years and the Catalan’s are pretty much unbeatable on their home turf, indeed they have put many top teams to the sword in comprehensive fashion. With Lionel Messi in great form and two ex-Liverpool aces in Suarez and Coutinho, I do feel that Barcelona on home soil, will have the edge slightly, but I think Liverpool will find the net at least once and even if they lose the game, they may still be in with a real chance at Anfield next Tuesday.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 2nd May

Arsenal v Valencia – Draw

Valencia could be a really tricky draw for Arsenal here. The Spanish side started the season quite slowly with a plethora of drawn games, but recently they have started to pick up more wins and they have Atletico Madrid a real test in La Liga recently. They have also drawn twice against Man Utd in the Champions League and beaten Celtic en-route to the semifinal, so they are well versed at playing British-based teams. The Gunners form of late has been up and down too and even though this is a huge game, I just think Valencia are technically very good and could prove to be a tough opponent for the Gunners. As such, I think a draw, either 0-0 or 1-1 is the most likely outcome here.

Eintracht Frankfurt v Chelsea – Draw

Frankfurt have been one of the best teams in the Europa League this season. They were perfect during the group phase and have beaten the likes of Inter Milan and Benfica in the knockout phase to reach this far. In Luka Jovic, they have one of the most in-demand strikers in Europe too. However, they face a Chelsea side who have been equally good in the Europa League this season although they have not faced teams quite of the calibre that Frankfurt have. Even so, I think Chelsea have enough quality to keep things tight in Germany and I expect them to come into the second leg having earned a draw from the first.
