Sunday’s Football Acca – 20th January 2019

We only have two games taking place this Sunday, with eight of the Premier League games being played yesterday. There is also a break of around 9-10 days for teams before they are next in action in the league, a midweek set of games from the 29th to the 30th January.

As such, this could well be a crucial set of fixtures, especially for the teams at opposite ends of the table and the four teams in action today are most definitely involved at both extremes with Man City lying second taking on relegation-threatened Huddersfield and similarly third-placed Spurs facing equally worried Fulham.

To go alongside these two games I have plumped for two big games taking place in Serie A, the first game pits Fiorentina against Sampdoria, while the evening games sees second placed Napoli facing Lazio in what should be a cracking contest at the Sao Paolo stadium.

I’ve had too many near misses for my liking over the past few weeks with my acca bets and while that is the nature of the beast at times, it doesn’t make it any less frustrating, so I am hoping that for once, the football gods are kind and that we can land a decent sized win to get 2019 off to a solid start, if of course my bet from yesterday hasn’t seen me quids in.

Here’s my tips for the four matches I’m backing on Sunday.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 20th January

Huddersfield v Manchester City – Away Win

Last season Huddersfield pulled off a shock draw away to Manchester City in the run in to help secure their Premier League status but given the contrasting form of the two teams heading into this game, it is difficult to make any possible case for the home side taking anything from this game. Huddersfield’s form is desperately poor and a point against Cardiff isn’t really enough for them to make inroads into the gap between them and safety. For Manchester City, it is all about winning to close the gap at the top of the table on Liverpool and I expect them to do that very comfortably here.

Fiorentina v Sampdoria – Draw

Three points separate these teams in Serie A after last weekend, with Sampdoria in 7th with 29 points, while Fiorentina are 10th in the table with 26 points from their 19 games. Fiorentina’s home record recently hasn’t been great but Sampdoria’s recent surge in form has been brought to a halt in their last two games too as they were handed defeats by Juventus and Milan. As such, I think the confidence the Genoa-based Sampdoria would have taken into this game will be slightly less and that may play into Fiorentina’s hands. The home side do draw a lot of games against similar quality opposition and I feel that is what this Sampdoria side is, hence I am backing the draw in this one.

Fulham v Tottenham – Away Win

Both these sides suffered gut-wrenching defeat last week, Fulham losing to Burnley while Tottenham lost at home to Manchester United. Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham are hoping to bring in some experienced players to help them try and avoid the drop and they’ll need to quickly before this season gets too far away from them. Spurs, who could be without striking duo Son (Asian Cup) and Harry Kane (ankle injury) may well find this game very tricky without the pair, although it will hand a chance to their back ups to come in and stake a claim for spot in the team. Even without Son and Kane, I am expecting Spurs to do more than enough to grab the win here.

Napoli v Lazio – Home Win

Napoli are just two places but 14 points ahead of Lazio in Serie A, albeit they are massively behind Juventus in the table. The two teams met in August and it was Napoli who came out on top, earning a 2-1 victory coming back from a 1-0 deficit to claim two goals either side of half time to earn the victory. The San Paolo is one difficult stadium to get a result in and with Napoli in decent form at home, winning all of their last five games and going unbeaten at home in Serie A, I can’t see even a talented Lazio side having enough to upset the odds and claim a win here. As such, it’s a strong home win for the Neapolitans for me.
