Crystal Palace v Ipswich Town Betting Tips: Both teams to have joy at Selhurst Park

Premier League hosts Championship in this League Cup tie as out-of-sorts Crystal Palace take on in-form Ipswich Town. Ronald De Boer’s arrival at Crystal Palace meant there was a lot of optimism around the club going into this season, however, reality has hit them hard and two defeats in two games means they are now 19th in the table. However, the League Cup presents a chance to pick up a result in a lower pressure environment. Dutchman De Boer was hired to bring an attractive style of play to Palace, however, although we are only two games in, the signs…

Accrington Stanley v West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips: Upset on the cards at Wham Stadium

Although this match sees a League Two side play host to a Premier League outfit, given this is the League Cup, this may not be as one-sided as many think. After nearly gaining promotion to League One via the playoffs the season before, Accrington finished in midtable in the 2016/17 campaign. They have had a relatively good start to this season, winning two and losing once, putting them up in the League Two playoff places for the time being. Additionally, they beat Championship side Preston North End in the previous round of this season’s League Cup. Stanley matches have seen…

USA v Jamaica Betting Tips: Caribbean side can give hosts something to think about

Another of this summer’s tournaments is just about ready to end; of the teams that started this competition, it is just USA and Jamaica left. As the host nation, the USA contingent were expected to lay down a big challenge, despite manager Bruce Arena not selecting the strongest possible squad. However, even though they’ve eventually made the final, performances have been questionable and it is only really because of the reinforcements called for after stumbling through the groups that they’ve made the last two. In contrast, Jamaica have exceeded expectations in reaching the final and, in knocking out the holders…

Costa Rica v Canada Betting Tips: The Ticos to have too much for the Canadians

This Gold Cup match sees Costa Rica play Canada in Houston with victory for either side pretty much guaranteeing a place in the next round. Despite the fact that they only qualified in fourth place from the Central American zone, many are tipping Costa Rica to win this tournament – especially given the fact that the giants of USA and Mexico have brought weak squads to the tournament with them. Costa Rica got their campaign off to a good start on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Honduras – arguably the second-strongest team in the group behind Costa Rica. This…

Chile v Germany Betting Tips: Forwards can steal the show at Stadion Krestovskyi

Having met each other once already in this competition, Chile and Germany will clash for the second time in less than two weeks when they faced off in the final on Sunday night. Before a ball was kicked in Russia this summer, this pair were among the favourites to go all the way so it’s no real surprise that they’ve made it this far. In the betting, it is the Germans who’ve been tagged as favourites; however, given their apparent defensive weaknesses, it’s easy to disagree with this. For all their attacking brilliance, of which there’s plenty, they’ve never really…

Germany U21 v Spain U21 Betting Tips: Spaniards to finish the job in Poland

As another summer tournament comes to a close, we’re left with one final game to enjoy, and, with two heavy-weights involved, what a game it promises to be. Prior to these finals in Poland, it was indeed Germany and Spain who were the most fancied to go all the way and so it appears the bookmakers got it spot on in that respect; however, the Germans were initially considered favourites in the outright market, but, as they’ve looked a class act throughout, it is now the Spanish who’re heavy faovurites ahead of the final. Both of these teams have created…

Germany v Mexico Betting Tips: Goals to flow at Olimpiyskiy Stadion

Having impressed during the groups stages, albeit from solely an attacking point of view, both Germany and Mexico made it through the groups unscathed which has set up what really should be an exciting semi-final encounter in Sochi. At this tournament so far, there has been plenty in the way of attacking intensity, and little in the way of defensive mindfulness, on show from these two so fans on Thursday night should be in for plenty of goals – famous last words…. This might be a semi-final, but it’s very much a dress rehearsal for next year’s main event and…

Spain U21 v Italy U21 Betting Tips: Celades’ men to maintain 100% record

Having finished the group stages as the only team in the competition to win all three of their matches, Spain come into this semi-final fixture against Italy as warm favourites. Not only have they maintained a 100% record at these finals, but the Spaniards have played the most impressive football. It looks as though it will take a massive effort for anyone to stop them going all the way, let alone an Italian outfit who’ve been particularly underwhelming. In somewhat farcical fashion, Italy earned the right to play in the semi-finals via a top place finish in Group C. Despite…

England U21 v Germany U21 Betting Tips: Goal-filled encounter expected in Tychy

Two old adversaries go head-to-head at Under-21 level on Tuesday evening as England meet Germany in the semi-finals of this summer’s Euros in Poland. Having topped group A courtesy of a commanding win on match-day three, the English should be coming into this fixture in buoyant mood while Germany, having lost their final group match, will be hoping to bounce back. During the groups, this pair both showed themselves to be useful outfits and so there’s plenty of reason to think that each can cause the other problems. The Germans in particular appeared to be a bit top-heavy with the majority…

Italy U21 v Germany U21 Betting Tips: Germans to continue on the up

In true German fashion, the young Die Mannschaft have gone about their business with minimal fuss at this tournament so far and are looking like the clear winners of Croup C with just one to play. A point is all that is needed for Stefan Kuntz’s men to top the group, although, with Italy needing to go for it, you certainly wouldn’t bet against the Germans taking all three points. Having won in somewhat conservative style on match-day one, it appeared as though the Italians would go on and build on what was a good start; however, that good stat has…

Czech Republic U21 v Denmark U21 Betting Tips: Goals on the cards in Kraków

Having lost first time up, Czech Republic defied the expectations of most onlookers as they bounced back to defeat Italy in convincing fashion last time out, scoring three goals in the process. Such a victory was impressive, especially considering the Italians are known for being notoriously hard to beat. That result not only means that the Czech’s can still qualify for the semi-finals, but that they come into this fixture with renewed confidence. Unfortunately, after losing both of their opening fixtures, Denmark are effectively out of the competition and so, in contrast to the Czech’s, there probably isn’t too much…

Macedonia U21 v Portugal U21 Betting Tips: Red Lions not to be written off in Gdynia

Having been victorious during the opening round of fixtures, Portugal will have had high hopes of making the semi-finals, but those hopes were severely dented last time out as they were defeated by the ever-impressive Spain. With just one fixture remaining, and with Spain likely to win again, Rui Jorge’s men are left needing a win, probably to secure second place, which may or may not be enough to progress to the semi-finals. Macedonia also require a win if they’re to grace the semi-finals with their presence, although, even if they were to take three points here, progression from the…

Serbia U21 v Spain U21 Betting Tips: La Roja to make it three in a row

On Friday night, Spain’s talented young squad will bid to make it three wins in a row as they take on a Serbian side who’ve been pretty poor at these finals so far. Given the way in which the Spanish have gone about their business at this tournament, it would take a brave punter to back against them securing a hat-trick of groups wins. Serbia and Spain come into this final group game in contrasting form; on the one hand you’ve got the Spanish who’ve been very impressive in swaggering their way to two wins, scoring eight goals in the…

Slovakia U21 v Sweden U21 Betting Tips: Lively affair expected in Group A

As things stand, Group A is the tightest in the competition with all four teams still in with something of a chance of going through. Both Slovakia and Sweden come into this game knowing that a win could see them progress in first place, although their fate will depend on the outcome of the other final match between England and Poland. Having won one and lost one, Slovakia have so far been a bit up and down at this tournament; they were deserved winners against Poland as they showcased both great forward energy and character, but lost, and deservedly so,…

Russia v Portugal Betting Tips: Hosts to come up short in Moscow

As the only team in Group A to win their opening fixture, Russia currently have the upper hand but, with Portugal and Mexico to play, they’ve still got plenty of work to do to qualify, let alone finish top. Portugal may well have picked up just a point on match-day one but considering that came against Mexico, the team who were always likely to provide their stiffest test, it was by no means a bad start. Russia beat a poor New Zealand side first time up so that result doesn’t exactly tell us much, although the fact that they did…

Germany U21 v Denmark U21 Betting Tips: Die Mannschaft to line punters pockets

After cruising to a commanding victory over Czech Republic during the first round of fixtures, Germany’s bid to finish top of Group C is still nicely on course while Denmark, who lost their opener against other semi-final hopefuls Italy, are already looking down and out after just one game. At the start of the tournament, Germany were many people’s favourites to go all the way and their performance on Sunday afternoon suggested that they’ve certainly come to Poland to win. Having got the better of their opponents last time out in what was probably third gear at most, it’s very…

Czech Republic U21 v Italy U21 Betting Tips: Low-key affair expected in Tychy

Despite coming into the tournament in patchy form, the Italians did what they do best when it comes to tournament football on match-day one as they ground out a solid victory over Denmark in disciplined fashion. In contrast, Czech Republic were poor in their loss to Germany and are all already looking in trouble as far as progressing from the group goes. Italy’s U21’s were well-drilled, organised and extremely professional in their win over Denmark and are expected to put together a similar performance here against a Czech side who failed to cope with the Germans on match-day one.

With the first round of fixtures now done and dusted, it’s safe to say that both Serbia and Macedonia are well and truly on the back foot in Group B. With Portugal and Spain winning first up, it’s looks as though this pair are destined for an early exit. Even though they face an uphill struggle, both will be keen to atone for their first match disappointments and, considering their opponents here also lost, both will fancy their chances. Of the two, although it was Macedonia who came off worse numerically, it was Serbia who disappointed the most on match-day…

Australia v Germany Betting Tips: Socceroos to come off second best in Sochi

Sunday’s Group B opener at the Confederations Cup see world Champions Germany take on likely whipping boys Australia in Sochi. Given their current standings in the world of International football, it would be no surprise at all to see the Australians on the wrong end of a damning score-line here as it looks for all to see that there’s only winner. Germany are known far and wide as an international footballing powerhouse and, despite perhaps not taking their strongest squad to Russia, are fancied to prove too hot to handle for Australia on Sunday afternoon. There are two bets that…

Cameroon v Chile Betting Tips: Chileans to hit their stride at first time of asking

Having retained their Copa America title in the summer of 2016, Chile will be looking to win silverware for the third year in a row in Russia this month, and their quest begins against African opposition in Cameroon on Sunday evening. In facing the Cameroonians first up, it would appear as though Alexis Sánchez and co. have an excellent chance to start things on the right foot. In recent times, Cameroon are a team who’ve struggled to impose themselves on matches against both South American and European teams and, having been easily beaten by Columbia in a friendly less than a…

Germany U21 v Czech Republic U21 Betting Tips: Shortage of goals unlikely at Stadion Miejski Tychach

On Sunday evening, Germany, who last won this competition back in 2009 when the likes of Manuel Neuer, Mesut Özil and Sami Khedira were all key figures at under-21 level, kick-off their tournament against the Czech Republic. On paper, this may look like something of a banker for the Germans; however, the Czech’s have previously thrived at youth level and, after a promising qualification campaign, will be confident of making their presence felt in Poland this summer. The Germans are unsurprisingly the favourites ahead of this match but the Czech’s really shouldn’t be underestimated; Vítězslav Lavička’s men come into this tournament in…

Ahead of this Group B opener, it is the Portuguese who’re heavy favourites, and, given both their impressive qualification campaign and recent form, this is hard to argue with. However, Serbia, who’ve recently upset the odds at youth level by winning the under-20 World Cup back in 2015, will be keen to prove (once again) that they’re no back number and they too come here off the back of a strong qualification campaign. From a betting point of view, goals are the way to play this one with ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ appealing as the stand…

In being placed in Group A, England look to have a solid chance of progressing to the semi-finals and will be particularly pleased that they’ve avoided all of Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal. Aidy Boothroyd’s men come into this competition in decent form and really ought to fancy their chances against a Sweden side who, despite winning the last renewal of this tournament, come here in patchy form. What is particularly eye-catching about this under-21 England side is the number of goals that they’ve been scoring prior to this tournament. With this in mind, coupled with the fact that Sweden…

As the under-20 World Cup is now a thing of the past, it’s time for Europe’s best under-21 teams to come together in Poland for the 2017 renewal of the under-21 Euros. Having seen their younger compatriots lift the aforementioned World Cup less than a week ago, England’s under-21 side will be hoping to follow up with victory in Poland, although, with the strength in depth possessed by some of the other nations, they might just struggle to do so. Having said that, at 10/1, there will be plenty of punters who’re fancying the English to take this tournament. Big…

Having acquitted themselves well at the Euros last summer, Northern Ireland are showing people that their upturn in fortunes might not be short lived as they continue to go well in World Cup Qualifying. Michael O’Neill’s men currently sit 2nd in Group C behind world champions Germany and will be in confident mood ahead of their trip to Azerbaijan. With seven points of their own during this campaign, Azerbaijan have also surprised a few people, although we probably shouldn’t read too much into this form as three of those points came courtesy of a win against San Marino.

Lithuania v Slovakia Betting Tips: Hosts can surprise a few on Saturday night

Slovakia travel to face Lithuania on Friday night as they try to cement their position inside the top two in Group F; however, despite the disparity between these two in the FIFA rankings, this fixture might just be a lot closer than the market suggests. Since their relatively respectable showing at the Euros last summer, Slovakia have been on something of a downward slope. Despite sitting 2nd in Group F, their performances have left plenty to be desired, particularly away from home. On the other side of the coin, Lithuania who’re ranked 83 places below Slovakia according to FIFA, have…

Sweden v France Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at Friends Arena

After five matches of this World Cup qualification campaign, just three points separate France and Sweden at the top of Group A. With just the group winners guaranteed a place in Russia next year, top spot is the priority and so this is something of a crunch match; if the Swede’s come out on top, the race is neck-and-neck with four to play but if France get the job done, they’re likely to be home and dry. In terms of the way this pair have gone about things during these qualifiers, there probably isn’t too much between them and thus…
