Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
It’s August and fans up and down the country will be eagerly anticipating next weekend’s big kick-off. In the meantime, we’re hoping to start the month in style with this 9/2 treble at William Hill.
Our three selections are all from matches taking place on Saturday evening. Let’s hope these three clubs will all get the desired results to get the party started.
New York City V Montreal Impact. 7PM
Our first selection comes from the night’s MLS action at the Yankee Stadium as New York City face Montreal Impact in what could be a crucial match in terms of deciding what teams progress to the MLS Cup. Quite frankly, nothing but a win will do for the hosts.
New York’s inaugural season has gone OK, but the recent recruits of Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard, who may still be a little short of his debut, will boost their hopes. Despite sitting below their weekend opponents, they can take confidence from last month’s away win in Canada.
Moreover, the hosts are in great scoring form at home recently. They’ve posted nine goals in their past two matches at the Yankee Stadium while star striker David Villa is up to a dozen league goals too.
Montreal are a good side, but they’ve only picked up one point from their past four away games and we can’t see that form improving here.

Wolfsburg V Bayern Munich. 8PM
The German Super Cup sees Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich face Cup winners Wolfsburg at the VW Arena. Despite conceding home advantage, though, the Bavarians should prevail.
Bayern were completely dominant once again last season, winning the league with some weeks to spare. Injuries did hinder Pep Guardiola’s men towards the business end of cup competitions but the Allianz Arena club are still one of the world’s strongest outfits.
Dieter Hecking’s men enjoyed a phenomenal 2014/15, which included a huge 4-1 win over Bayern here. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne have garnered interest from Europe’s biggest clubs, while Bas Dost was in sensational scoring form last term.
Despite these positives, as well as the inclusion of Lord Bendtner, we think the underdogs will come up short here. Guardiola’s men should put another trophy in the cabinet.

Paris Saint-Germain V Lyon. 8:30PM
After another season of domestic dominance in 2014/15, Laurent Blanc’s PSG kickstart their new campaign with the French Super Cup against Lyon. The Parisians will be fully expected to claim victory in the season opener.
As has been tradition for a few years, the game is played abroad. This year’s contest takes place in Canada and PSG will be hoping to put on a great show in Quebec. In truth, the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani shouldn’t face too much trouble against a Lyon side that shipped eight in two matches at last weekend’s Emirates Cup.
Hubert Fournier’s underdogs haven’t enjoyed the best pre-season and were already miles behind their illustrious opponents. Alezandre Lacazette’s continued speculation of a move away will only unsettle matters further and we can’t see them causing an upset.
Back Blanc’s men to shine.
