International Football Acca Tip – Saturday 8th September

With the Premier League on a break this weekend, we have something a little different to look forward to for our weekend accumulator this week. That is the start of UEFA’s new competition, the Nations League. A biennial event, starting in the September of every even numbered year, which will see European teams promoted and relegated throughout three Leagues over time.

The tournament begins with the first set of 20 games taking place from Thursday through to Saturday and as such, we are going to focus on the games taking place on Saturday for the purposes of our accumulator for this week.

It’s going to be interesting to see what international managers and teams make of this new tournament. Will they embrace it as a major event, or will it be simply a vehicle for managers to try out new players and formations?

Let’s now take a look at our tips for this weekend’s fourfold accumulator.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 8th September

Northern Ireland v Bosnia-Herzegovina – Draw

After missing out on the World Cup after losing their playoff to Switzerland in somewhat controversial circumstances, Northern Ireland will be keen to get back to better form at home here, but they face a Bosnia-Herzegovina side that although not a big force in Europe, do possess some outstanding players. The most notable of these are Juventus midfield lynchpin Miralem Pjanic and ex-Man City and current AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko. The quality of those two players in particular makes me worry for West Ham and with B-H doing well on trips to the UK before, notably against Wales, I think that the visitors will do enough to get a draw here against the Northern Irish at Windsor Park.

Finland v Hungary – Home Win

Of these two teams it is Finland who have the best recent record of the two teams. Hungary probably have the better individual players, but I see these teams as bering very similar to each other. They’ll be well organised, physical, strong and defend deep and well and look to counter and in the end I feel games like this tend to be somewhat drab and dour affairs. The key factor for me here is that I think home advantage will be crucial and with them having enjoyed better form of late, I am backing Finland to grab a narrow win here, but I would be surprised if we see more than one goal in this game.

Switzerland v Iceland – Home Win

Both these teams have enjoyed strong performances of late to push them into the upper echelons of European football. Switzerland have had the better World Cup performance in the summer, but Iceland had their moments and arguably gave Croatia more problems than England managed in the World Cup semifinal. This is another game which, if both teams play strong teams, I think will be a game of very few chances and even fewer goals and my gut feeling here is that one goal will be enough to win it. Given their slightly better form and the fact they are at home, my money will be on Switzerland taking a narrow win here.

England v Spain – Draw

Without doubt the biggest game on Saturday comes at Wembley as England seek to continue their improvement under Gareth Southgate against one of the favourites to win the tournament outright, Spain.  The Spanish now have Luis Enrique in charge after their poor World Cup performance in the summer, chiefly down to the sacking of manager Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament. Spain’s older players are starting to look a little one-paced at times and England’s pace could be a problem for them, but England’s problem may well be keeping the ball against a Spain side that will likely dominate possession. I feel England will score, but so will Spain and as such, I think a draw is the most likely outcome here.
