Football Bet of the Day: Paco to pack a punch

Kev hopes to wrap up a profitable week by backing one of Europe’s hottest strikers, as Eintracht Frankfurt face Borussia Dortmund.

“Alcacer has scored in all but one of his matches for club and country this season, and he should’ve scored in the other one against Barcelona.”

Occasionally the world witnesses an extraordinary event, like a blue moon or a solar eclipse. We saw something to top most of those last night, as Monaco kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw at Reims. Annoying, but we’re still in profit for the week.

We wrap up our stint in Germany, because Borussia Dortmund are making the trip to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

BVB have had a strong week. They pounded Barcelona in the Champions League, but couldn’t quite force a winner in a goalless draw. Marco Reus saw a penalty brilliantly saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, as Barca squeaked through the game unscathed. Last weekend, Dortmund shredded Bayer Leverkusen 4-0.

Central striker Paco Alcacer netted the first of the four goals, which means he has now scored in all four Bundesliga games this term. In all competitions for club and country this season, he has scored in eight of his nine matches. In 2019, he has rattled in 16 goals.

Eintracht Frankfurt have had a tough week. They lost 2-1 at Augsburg, and although they then played fairly well against Arsenal in the Europa League, they still lost 3-0 and looked very vulnerable on the counter-attack. The Eagles have only kept one clean sheet in their last six games.

The last clashes between these sides have yielded 28 goals, and I suspect we’ll have plenty of goals this time too. I’ll back Alcacer to grab at least one of them at [2.36].
