Portugal, Germany and Belgium all backed in enhanced treble

| 26.06.2014

We bid farewell to the group phase of the World Cup in Brazil later but fear not because Ladbrokes has an enhanced treble offer designed to help punters go out with a bang.

Back pre-tournament contenders Germany, Belgium and Portugal to pick up expected wins against inferior opposition and you could claim a hefty return, with the odds on this tempting treble enhanced from 5/1 to 6/1 with the bookmakers.

With customers able to bet as much as £25 on these selections, it could add up to a return of £175 for the ambitious amongst you! Read on to get the lowdown on all three banker contests.

Portugal to beat Ghana @ 19/20

The Selecao need a big win to stand any chance of making the second round, though they will have been boosted by the news that star midfield pair Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince-Boateng have been sent home with the Ghana squad in turmoil over a row regarding bonuses.

Portugal pipped Ivory Coast to qualification from the groups in 2010 and beat Cameroon 5-1 in a recent friendly, while they are unbeaten in 11 encounters with African sides.

Germany to beat USA @ 8/13

Though much of the pre-match talk has been of the teams potentially agreeing to draw the game in a result that would see both go through, Germany will be desperate to avoid a repeat of the infamous 1982 Shame of Gijon incident when they played for a result that put themselves and Austria through.

Still a sore point for Die Mannschaft, Germany will be keen to leave nothing to chance against a USA team that beat a second-string Germany team 4-3 in a recent friendly. Prior to that Joachim Loew’s team had won three in a row against the Americans and normal service should resume here.

Belgium to beat Korea Republic @ 8/11

Korea Republic are in danger of becoming the whipping boys of this World Cup following a 4-2 defeat to Algeria, while Belgium will be keen to maintain momentum with a third win in the group stage against arguably the weakest opposition in their pool.

Marc Wilmots will also be all-too-aware that failure to win, coupled with an Algeria victory, could see them finish second, potentially setting up a World Cup-ending clash with old foes Germany.
