I had mixed fortunes yesterday, doing very well with my goals galore selections with 6 from 7, but Senegal really let me down for my banker accumulator. With all picks winning in the afternoon, I was supremely confident that Senegal would do the business last night to make it a great day; Boy was I wrong! Senegal were absolutely shocking in defence, so much so that I may have to refrain from the African Nations now. Anyway, on to Sunday’s best accumulator.
Novara v AC Milan 2.00pm
Novara are rock bottom of Serie A with just 12 points from their 18 games. They are dire away from home, and very average at home.
AC Milan have 25 points more than their opponents and trail table toppers by just 4 points with a game in hand.
Milan’s last away loss was at Juventus back at the beginning of October, and a win here should be simple enough.
VVV v Feyenoord 1.30pm
VVV are another team stuck to the bottom of the league. They’ve won just two games all season, and Feyenoord should be far too strong for them even though they have had a somewhat disappointing season to date.
Bayer Leverkusen v Mainz 4.30pm
Leverkusen suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Nurnberg in their final game of 2011, but could bounce back here with a win over Mainz.
Mainz are draw specialists away from home, with 4 stalemates in their last 5. However I’m expecting Leverkusen to start their2012 campaign off in style here.
Eskisehirspor v Galatasaray 5.00pm
Galatasaray are playing out of their skins at the moment. Since their 3-1 defeat of Fenerbahce last year they are undefeated in the league and look a cut above their opposition.
I follow the Turkish league closely, and Galatasaray, who are top of the league, are well worth following here.
Eskisehirspor aren’t a bad side at their best, and they are tough to beat at home, conceding just 8 goals so far, but Galatasaray are on another level at the moment and should be backed.
