After the midweek friendly action, the real international business kicks off today, with the latest round of qualifying games for World Cup 2018.
And to help you into the weekend, we’ve come up with what we reckon is a pretty solid five-fold.
It can be a fiendish quest trying to find value from international qualifiers, but hopefully we’ve managed to do just that…
Republic of Ireland v Wales – Both Teams To Score @ 11/10
The Republic of Ireland have given themselves a great platform, taking 10 points from their opening 12 games.
But Wales will know that Group D is still wide-open, and victory here would springboard Chris Coleman’s side right into contention.
A draw won’t really do much at all for Welsh’ hopes, so we fancy an attacking contest with both teams netting.
Iceland to beat Kosovo @ 4/11
Heroes of last summer’s Euros, Iceland are now looking to make their first World Cup appearance.
Defeat to Croatia has dented their hopes, meaning victory away at Kosovo is a must if they’re to maintain those aspirations.
The hosts have taken a point off Finland already in their qualifying debut, but the visitors should have too much quality here for what is a well-priced acca booster.
Georgia v Serbia – Georgia & Draw Double Chance @ 11/10
In the same group as Ireland and Wales, Georgia are proving difficult to beat. They took a point away from Cardiff and were beaten just 1-0 in Dublin.
A trip to Tbilisi is rarely easy, and each of Germany, France and Spain have found it hard-going in recent years.
So Serbia, who have won just three of their last 11 away games, could well be dropping points.
Turkey to beat Finland @ 2/5
Finland are going through a difficult spell, and are a far cry from the talented side of 15 years ago which featured the likes of Jari Litmanen, Mikael Forsell and Aki Riihilahti.
They’ve won just one of their last 15 matches – versus Morocco – and have already been held to a draw by Kosovo.
Turkey will see this as an excellent chance to lift themselves up the table on their own turf, and we can only see a home win here.
Spain -2 to beat Israel @ 10/11
The 2010 World Cup champions have already fired in 15 goals in qualifying, although admittedly eight of those came against Liechtenstein.
But there’s no value in backing the hosts at 1/9, so get on them -2 to see off an Israel side who only managed to win 2-1 against the aforementioned minnows.
