Everton hosts Newcastle United at Goodison Park in tonight’s early Premier League kick-off in what should be an entertaining contest.
The Toffees are in decent form, having won three of their last five matches, beating Burnley 3-0 in the League Cup, as well as Crystal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park and Nottingham Forest 1-0 away at the City Ground. Goodison Park has oddly not been a strong point for the Toffees, having only managed a 1-1 home draw with Brighton prior to their 3-0 loss to Manchester United.
Eddie Howe’s men did the double on Everton last season which included a 4-1 win at Goodison Park. The Magpies enter this game off 1-0 and 4-1 wins over Manchester United and Chelsea on either side of a 1-1 draw with PSG at the Parc des Princes. Prior to these matches, the Toon Army had suffered back-to-back 2-0 losses to AFC Bournemouth and Borussia Dortmund.
A London derby takes place tonight, as Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Ange Postecoglou’s men are without a win in their last four matches since their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on 27th October, having lost 4-1 to Chelsea, before losing consecutive matches by 2-1 scorelines against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa prior to their sensational 3-3 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
West Ham’s 1-1 home draw with Palace at the weekend ended their four-match winning streak as David Moyes’ men had beaten Olympiakos 1-0, Nottingham Forest 3-2, Burnley 2-1 and TSC 1-0.
Seventh-place Brest takes on 15th in the table Strasbourg in Ligue 1 at Stade Francis Le Ble.
Will Still’s side have managed to refind their form of late, having beaten Clermont Foot 3-0 and Montpellier 3-1 after 2-0, 3-2 and 1-0 defeats against AS Monaco, PSG and Lille.
On the other hand, Strasbourg are in dire form as they are without a win in their last five outings, having suffered 2-1 and 3-0 defeats to Reims and PSG on either side of 1-1 draws with Rennes and Marseille as well as a 0-0 draw with Clermont Foot.
Our first of two tips from the Copa del Rey sees Segunda Federacion Group 4 outfit Orihuela face the unenviable task of going up against La Liga highflyers Girona.
In order to reach this round of the competition, Orihuela managed to hold Gimnastic Tarragona to a 0-0 draw before emerging victorious 6-5 on penalties.
Girona are in superb form, as they have won four of their last five matches, having beaten San Roque Lepe 2-1 in the last round of the Copa del Rey before beating Osasuna 4-2, as well as Rayo Vallecano and Valencia by 2-1 scorelines on either side of a 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao.
Sestao against Celta Vigo is the other Copa del Rey tie that features on this Smart Acca.
The home side currently plays in Primera Federacion Group 1 (third-tier) and sits in 18th place following 1-0 and 2-1 defeats to Lugo and Fuenlabrada on either side of a 2-0 win at Rayo Majadahonda. In their last Copa del Rey match, Sestao managed to beat Gimnastica Segoviana 4-3.
The visitors are currently managed by Rafael Benitez and will be hoping to use the cup to improve their form as a whole as they sit 18th in La Liga. Celta’s last win came via a 4-0 scoreline over Turegano in the last round, as they have since drawn 1-1 with Sevilla and Cadiz, as well as 0-0 at Valencia following a 4-3 away defeat to Athletic Bilbao.
The final game on this Smart Acca sees Dutch Eredivisie champions Feyenoord host 17th-place Volendam at De Kuip.
Arne Slot’s men are currently 10 points adrift of league leaders PSV in second-place following their 2-1 home loss to them last time out. Feyenoord’s Champions League campaign has seemingly fallen apart after 3-1 and 1-0 defeats to Atletico Madrid and Lazio, however, in the league they have recently beaten Excelsior 4-2 and AZ Alkmaar 1-0.
Volendam have seen the Over 2.5 Goals market land in each of their last four matches since losing 2-0 to Ajax on 2nd November, as after a 3-3 draw at NEC, they have suffered 4-1, 3-0 and 5-0 defeats to Sparta Rotterdam, AZ Alkmaar and PEC Zwolle.
