Denmark, Nigeria, Mexico a sumptuous 7/1 international treble

| 28.05.2014

Coral are offering enhanced odds of 7/1 on Denmark, Nigeria and Mexico all winning their latest round of international friendlies.

Morten Olsen’s Danes taken on fellow Scandinavian side Sweden, while Nigeria take on Scotland at Craven Cottage and El Tri encounter Israel.

Denmark v Sweden
This is one of world football’s most played fixtures, as the two neighbours have met 101 times. Denmark, who have won the last three to nil against the Swedes (a 16/5 chance), are 11/8 to beat their rivals again here.

Danish attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen will be desperate to impress new club coach Mauricio Pochettino, after Tottenham poached the Argentine from Southampton. Adam Lallana is linked to Spurs, so Eriksen can prove his worth by scoring anytime here at 7/4.

Forward Michael Krohn-Dehli was on target in Denmark’s last win over their bitter rivals, and the Celta Vigo man had a fine season in Galicia under recently appointed Barcelona boss Luis Enrique. Back him to net here at a more attractive 7/2.

Nigeria v Scotland
The Super Eagles have won their only previous meeting with Scotland, so are 6/5 favourites to do so again at Craven Cottage. Stephen Keshi has a preliminary squad with strength in depth up top, so former West Ham frontman Victor Obinna is a worthwhile shout to score anytime at 15/8.

Shola Ameobi, meanwhile, is looking for a new club following his release from Newcastle, despite 17 years of loyal service. He is 5/1 to be on target in this encounter. A repeat of Nigeria’s 2-1 Pittodrie win in 2002 is a 9/1 shot here.

Mexico v Israel
Miguel Herrera’s Aztecs are unbeaten in five, and that is down to his 3-5-2 formation. He has finally called upon players from Europe, and that is why they are odds-on 4/9 favourites to win here.

El Tri have scored four or more in four or their last six matches, so take the 13/2 price on them netting over 3.5 goals against Israel.
