The Daily Acca: Verona and Juventus to treat us to plenty of goals

A win for Juventus would close the gap on Napoli to one point
A win for Juventus would close the gap on Napoli to one point

Saturday's edition of The Daily Acca sees Paul Robinson visit Old Trafford, as well as a top of the table Championship fixture and a Serie A match. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Man United v Southampton @ 11/10
- Back BTTS in Bristol City v Wolves @ 4/5
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Verona v Juventus @ 4/6

The Acca pays approximately 11/2

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Man United v Southampton @ 11/10 - KO 17:30 GMT

There was more disappointment for Manchester United on Boxing Day as they could only draw at home with Burnley and it was their second 2-2 draw in a row.

Jose Mourinho's side aren't defending as well as they did earlier in the campaign and they have now conceded in three of their last five in the league at Old Trafford.

The Saints aren't known as prolific scorers but they still managed to net twice in a 5-2 defeat at Spurs last time out, and this selection would have landed in five of their last seven away from St Mary's.


Bet 2: Back BTTS in Bristol City v Wolves @ 4/5 - KO 17:30 GMT

The top two meet in the Championship at Ashton Gate this evening and there is a good chance of goals at both ends.

Wolves have found the net in each of their last seven on their travels and while they have kept clean sheets in five of those outings, I like to focus on the attacking attributes of the opposition.

The hosts have scored in each of their last five on this ground - including two in four of them - and they are in red-hot form with wins in five of their last six matches.

This really should be a cracker and a scoreline of 2-2 wouldn't surprise me in the slightest.


Bet 3: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Verona v Juventus @ 4/6 - KO 19:45 GMT

Hellas Verona are second from bottom of Serie A, were beaten 4-0 last Saturday and face the division's top scorers today.

Interestingly though, they somehow managed to beat Inter by three goals to nil on their last home appearance. That was their fourth match in a row to see this selection land and their defence will certainly be in for a long night against Juventus.

The Old Lady are in fine form and it's interesting to note than they have scored more goals away from home than in Turin this season. They have racked up 23 goals in eight away games - compared to 22 in 10 at home.

Half a dozen of those eight have not surprisingly ended with over 2.5 backers collecting and they can go within one point of Napoli at the top with a victory.
