World Cup Accumulator Tip: Sat 10th June

Saturday’s tips sees the renewal of a rivalry that is one of the oldest in International football as Scotland welcome Auld Enemies England to Hampden Park in what is an absolutely crucial match up in Qualifying Group F. Northern Ireland equally have a must win game over in Baku against Azerbaijan as they realistically chase second spot in Group C behind the current World Cup holders Germany.

As is often the case with many international weeks nowadays, there are a lot of mismatches in International football and value can be hard to find sometimes, especially when you consider Germany are 1/100 to beat San Marino and there are several other games across the three days that see teams involved in similar kinds of games. That said, I think I’ve put together a tasty little fourfold bet which has a decent chance of a good payout.

Here’s my selections for Saturday’s World Cup Qualifiers.

Bet Analysis: Sat 10th June

Azerbaijan to lose to Northern Ireland – Azerbaijan are not the pushover’s that they once were on the European football scene, but by the same token, Northern Ireland have emerged as one of the most improved sides in recent years. A strong showing in Euro 2016 has been backed up in Group C of World Cup qualifying with their only defeat a narrow one to Germany in their five games so far. In truth, Germany are going to win this group at a canter, so it is these games where Northern Ireland need to pick up the points. Azerbaijan away will be tricky, but Michael O’Neill’s men have navigated trickier games than this in the recent past and their recent form is so good that they should be fully confident of picking up what could be an absolutely huge three points here. I’m backing them to win a close game by the odd goal in three.

Lithuania to be defeated by Slovakia – Slovakia didn’t get off to the best start in the group but they have put those two defeats to England and Slovenia behind them well to win their last three games, scoring ten goals in the process. They face a Lithuania side who started the Group phase well, picking up five points in three games, but who have since lost their last two comprehensively. Slovakia know that with England at the top of the table and Slovenia and Scotland breathing down their neck, they cannot afford to drop points here and while Lithuania are generally competent defensively, especially at home, they lack any real attacking threat against the better sides in Europe. This will be close but I am backing Slovakia’s extra quality to be the difference here.

Norway to lose to the Czech Republic – The Czech Republic find themselves in the position of hoping Northern Ireland drop points in Group C or they could miss out on the playoffs altogether. That is unthinkable for a side that boasts some truly talented players and who should, on paper at least, have the bettering of what is a somewhat ordinary and workmanlike Norway side. The Norwegians have won just one and lost four of their matches so far in qualifying and they are a pale shadow of the team that were one of the shining lights in Europe in the 1990s and produced some outstanding results against top teams. The Czech’s form is erratic and they do blow hot and cold but I do think they have more than enough quality in midfield and attack to get the win here, even if it is by a narrow margin.

Scotland to lose to England – Scotland have very wisely adopted the underdog role here, especially considering their 3-0 defeat to England back in November at Wembley. Gareth Southgate’s side enjoy a four point lead at the top of Group F so a win isn’t absolutely vital here, especially with home games against Slovakia and Slovenia to come. However, England do have a youthful looking squad, whereas Scotland’s does have a bit more experience, but not quite at the level that the majority of English players play. Strachan will likely lean on his sextet of Celtic stars who went the season unbeaten and of course, the Tartan Army will be out in force, but England have a good record at Hampden in more recent times and I think they have the quality to counter Scotland intelligently with pace and as such, I think it will be the visitors celebrating on Saturday evening.
