Wednesday night is a busy one for football both in England and abroad. With big cup action on the continent and a full card of Premier League games, it’s perfect for fans of football accumulators.
Chelsea vs Wolves
Mason Mount to have 1+ shots on target from outside the box
It’s been a dramatic week at Chelsea but we’ve backed them to see off a Wolves side who have terrible form behind them on the road. Thomas Tuchel should give the Blues a boost, while he’d be mad to drop one of the standout performers under Frank Lampard.
Mason Mount has emerged as Chelsea’s standout player during this bad run of form. Mount has averaged 1.9 shots per league game this term, 71% of which have been taken from outside the box. We expect him to get chances here and he’s more than capable of working the goalkeeper from distance.
Atalanta vs Lazio
Both teams to score in both halves
It’s no shock that these two sides are two of Italy’s strongest forward lines and the pair are both delivering goals ahead of this Coppa Italia showdown.
Lazio have scored in their last 15 Serie A games, averaging 1.78goals per game on the road. Meanwhile, Atalanta have scored 2.44 per game at home. Both of these two teams scored in each half of their previous Coppa Italia game earlier this month and we can see them doing that again.
Sevilla vs Valencia
Sevilla to win
The big cup game of the night in Spain pits together Sevilla and Valencia, with the Champions League chasing hosts expected to see off 14th placed Valencia.
Sevilla have won their last three home games, but they meet a Valencia side who have scored in their last nine trips. Sevilla have won by a single goal in their last two clashes with Valencia so a narrow home win wouldn’t be a shock.
