Euro 2016 play-offs could prove profitable for punters
Coral have outdone themselves with a host of generous odds for customers to grab ahead of the Euro 2016 play-offs, allowing punters to plump for the combination of their four favoured teams to qualify for the finals. Here, we highlight fab four Norway, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine and Sweden at an enhanced 15/2 price all to reach France, as our pick from a brilliant bunch.
Wondering why these big-guns are our featured four? This quad of quality teams are all odds-on to qualify and favourites to win their play-off first legs as hosts, but read on for even more riveting reasons to back this bet…
Having beaten the likes of Bulgaria and Croatia, while running Italy close in their final group fray, this Nordic nation are also fancied 20/23 favourites to take the spoils from their first scuffle against play-off opponents Hungary. With just one defeat from their past six duels, the smart money is on the Scandinavians.
Norwich City star Alexander Tettey, who has notched two in as many of his last internationals, Celtic Player of the Year Stefan Johansen and Real Madrid starlet Martin Odegaard should have more than enough quality to see Norway past the Magical Magyars.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Another nation with home advantage in the first-leg here, the Golden Lilies (4/5 to qualify) have a lethal arsenal capable of punishing underdogs Republic of Ireland, and can signal their intent before this battle returns to the Emerald Isle.
Bosnia and Herzegovina are in fine form with three wins on the bounce and boast rampant Roma pair Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic in their ranks. Ferocious forward Dzeko has grabbed crucial recent goals for his loan club in the Champions League and Rome derby, while Pjanic has been nothing short of inspirational this term, making this a tricky two-legged tie for the Irish.
Sought-after star Andriy Yarmolenko and Sevilla schemer Yevhen Konoplyanka both rank in the top 10 of Ukraine’s all-time top scorer list and will be expected to fire their nation past minnows Slovenia.
The Danes were dismally beaten to an automatic spot by underdogs Albania, and have not won any of their past four outings, also notching just one solitary strike in those matches.
Meanwhile, hosts the Swedes (10/11 to qualify for the Euros) have plenty of potency, with PSG superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting five goals in his past five games, and fellow marksman Marcus Berg also on target recently.
