Fivefold World Cup qualifier acca
International football continues as Europe’s finest nations look to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, including Euro 2016 winners Portugal and finalists France embarking on their first away qualifiers of the campaign.
As a result, Coral football writers have picked out a number of fixtures to stick a fantastic fivefold World Cup qualifier accumulator on…
Euro champions sure to swat Swiss
Portugal are coming off their greatest ever football tournament, winning the nation’s first competitive trophy at Euro 2016 and will be flying high coming into their first World Cup qualifier.
The Navigators have only lost once to Switzerland in their previous seven encounters and look set continue their fine form in Bern. Their Swiss foes struggled at the Euros, finishing second in their group and were knocked out of the competition at the round of 16.
Portugal are 19/10* to triumph against the Swiss and should have no problem dispatching Vladimir Petkovic’s players.
Bleus to beat Belarus
They may have lost in the final of Euro 2016, but France are still one of the most exciting football nations in the land.
Their squad boasts the likes of the world’s most expensive player Paul Pogba and this year’s European Championship top scorer Antoine Griezmann, to name a few.
Against Belarus, Les Bleus are undefeated in their last three encounters and look set to continue that streak in Barysaw.
France have only lost once this calendar year and are 2/5* to beat the White Wings in our fantastic fivefold World Cup qualifier acca.
Dutch to dominate Swedes
Sweden suffered a huge loss this summer with the nation’s all-time leading scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic retiring from international duties.
Now without the big man, the Swedes will be scratching their heads wondering where the goals will come from.
The Netherlands will be looking to bounce back from a difficult national football period and possess a talent laden squad. Daley Blind, Georginio Wijnaldum and Wesley Sneijder glitter Danny Blind’s set-up, while Sweden are without a leading light.
The Oranje have only lost once in their last four games against the Scandinavian nation and are 13/10* to triumph at the Friends Arena.
Magyars maul minnows
Hungary shocked a lot of fans by making it to the knockout stage of Euro 2016, having finished top of their group.
The Central European outfit have a 100 per cent record against the Faroe Islands, a team with just two wins in their last 10 competitive games.
Balazs Dzsudzsak will be a particular name to look out for. The Hungary captain netted twice at the Euros and will relish the chance to get at the Atlantic Island, who have conceded nine in their last five games. Bernd Storck’s Magyars as a result are 2/5* to triumph in Torshavn.
Red Devils to do damage
Under new boss Roberto Martinez and second assistant Thierry Henry, Belgium should feel revitalised after difficulties during Marc Wilmots’ tenure.
The Red Devils have promised to take off as an international footballing force and this could be the qualifying campaign it all falls into place.
Belgium are undefeated against Cyprus in the history of the fixture, winning eight of nine encounters. Martinez’s men have only lost one of their last 10 qualifiers and look set to continue this superb record in Nicosia.
Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and co are 1/3* to triumph and complete our fantastic fivefold World Cup qualifier acca.
