Wales and Croatia help form 27/1 Euro qualifier four-fold

After a drip stream of meaningless international friendlies has kept football fans’ interest lightly peaked since the end of the competitive football season, the return of Euro 2016 is, for once, greeted with open arms across the continent.

Action of substance will be few and far between during the sunnier months, so the chance to place those dizzying accumulators must be snapped up with every opportunity.

On the first night of Uefa’s staggered fixture system, we’ve plucked this four-fold, paying out at around 27/1, from the form book:

Croatia to beat Italy @ 7/5

The hosts have only suffered one defeat in their last eight outings and boast a credible 1-1 draw with Italy among that run of impressive results.

At home, the Blazers have both been formidable and ruthless, winning eight of their last nine, all of their last five and scoring 15 goals in their last three.

Iceland to beat Czech Republic @ 7/4

The top two in Group A meet with neither side having tasted victory in their international assignment.

However, it is Iceland’s sturdy defence that helps them earn this selection, with Lars Lagerback’s side shipping just two goals in their Euro 2016 qualifiers thus far.

The hosts have won all of their last four outings at Laugardalsvöllur to nil and haven’t lost a competitive match their in five.

Norway to beat Azerbaijan @ 1/3

The banker of this quartet is Norway, who should have no trouble arresting their own slip in form against an Azerbaijan side that have won just once in the last nine.

The Scandinavian’s sit two points off an automatic qualification spot in Group H and lost 5-1 to Croatia last time they played in this competition, but face an outfit that has lost its last five away games by an aggregate 18-2 scoreline.

Wales (draw no bet) to beat Belgium @ 11/5

Gareth Bale’s presence has helped Wales to share top spot in Group B with Belgium, with both sides going unbeaten in their five matches so far.

The Real Madrid star will need to be at his best to better a Red Devils unit in supreme touch. But he’s managed to propel his country this far and should the result be a draw, as it was in Brussels, then this multiple won’t crash.
