Champions League accumulator: Malmo and Maribor make the cut

| 22.07.2014

The Champions League qualifying action keeps coming thick and fast this week with another set of games taking place this Wednesday and prime for a bit of pre-season accumulator action.

Featuring such classics as Maribor and Steaua Bucharest, this is your chance to get the ball rolling ahead of the new season, with a fourfold acca offering odds of just over 3/1 for those keen to get in on the action.

With these particular selections equating to a return of £42.48 for those placing a £10 bet with Ladbrokes, you’re really got no excuse not to get involved either!

HJK to beat Rabotnicki @ 2/5

HJK put in a dominant performance last time out and were unlucky not to leave Macedonia with a win. However, after picking up three points in a 2-0 league win over SJK at the weekend they should be confident of doing the job in Helsinki against Rabotnicki side without a victory in three.

Malmo FF to beat Ventspils @ 11/20

The Swedish giants may have been held to a goalless draw on their own turf last week but a run of eight wins and two draws from their last 10 away games suggests Malmo should have enough to see off European minnows Ventspils – a side that has won just one of their last three at home.

Steaua Bucharest to beat Stromsgodset @ 9/20

Steaua got the better of Stromsgodset in Norway with a well-earned 1-0 victory that should set them up for a home win here having recently hammered Oldham Athletic 4-1 in a recent friendly. With Stromsgodset winning just one of seven on the road, a home win should be academic.

Maribor to beat Zrinjski Mostar @ 7/20

Maribor have won each of their last four home encounters in the league going into this fixture and despite drawing 0-0 in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the first-leg should have enough to see off a Zrinjski side that suffered defeat in their last league encounter played on the road.
