Portugal U21 beat Macedonia U21

Starting off at the Euros and Portugal look banker material, so there’s no better way to kick-off. The selections trail group leaders Spain after two games played, showing one win and a loss, the negative coming vs the leaders last time, courtesy of a 3-1 score. That would’ve stung this young Portuguese side, but they have the perfect opportunity to bounce back, and convincingly, against Macedonia. They are 1/7, and should be too.

Spain U21 beat Serbia U21

Although they took the legs away from Portugal last time, Spain can do their rivals a favour here and record a win that would see Portugal progress, while earning themselves a 100 per cent group record, signalling their intentions going forward. They put five past Macedonia and got three against Portugal last time. We were surprised to see Coral traders offer 8/15 on another three points here, and that’s a must-have. Premier League fans will know all about the quality of Gerard Deulofeu.

Cork beat Derry

Taking the first of three from the Irish top-flight, and Cork are another side who are more than capable of getting the desired result, if playing to the best of their ability. They are runaway leaders after 18 games and won’t be caught. Nowhere near it in fact. A form team, they should enhance their tally against a Derry side that dropped points against lowly Drogheda recently. 4/6 will do us a favour.

Bray beat Galway

The leg that will, hopefully, boost up our returns at the end of play, and Bray Wanderers are trusted to go on the road and snatch victory. Their recent form has been patchy, to say the least, but on their day they are more than capable of beating any side at this level of football. Galway lost three in-a-row not too long ago, sinking to Derry, Bohemians and Shamrock. We’ll need a bit of luck, but that’s reflected in Bray’s price of 13/10.

Shamrock beat Drogheda

We’ll take Shamrock to finish up, and that’s an easy decision to make, looking at the form of both sides. Drogheda fans have had very little to shout about this season, with wins proving difficult to come by. Shamrock haven’t had the same problem, beating Galway, Bray and Finn Harps. We’ll pick this one to fall into line, and a Shamrock smile is 4/11.
