Fivefold World Cup qualifying acca
The international break has taken centre stage this week, with the Premier League and other top European divisions on hold for now, but there’s plenty of exciting action to be enjoyed this weekend.
Sam Allardyce will hope to make a strong start to his reign as England boss when they travel to Slovakia, while Scotland and Northern Ireland are also beginning their 2018 World Cup qualification campaigns.
With all roads leading toward Russia, Coral offer up a fivefold World Cup qualifying accumulator for punters to back ahead of the upcoming international battles, featuring a host of top European nations.
A £2 wager on these selections will return just over a whopping £300 at current odds, so read on to learn more about each leg of this fine fivefold World Cup qualifying acca…
Rooney to bag brace for England
It’s a big Sunday evening for former West Ham United and Sunderland manager Allardyce, as he looks to enjoy a successful first game in charge of the Three Lions against Slovakia, previous Euro 2016 group stage opponents.
A draw could only be secured in France in the last meeting, but under new management morale is on a high and many players have a lot to prove, including skipper Wayne Rooney.
The all-time Three Lions marksman dispatched a double in a comfortable 4-0 win over their next opponents back in 2009, and he is a promising 7/1* to score two or more again for England on their travels.
Scotland to net three or more against Malta
Having endured the disappointment of missing out on Euro 2016 this past summer, Scotland will be aiming to make a good start to World Cup qualifying in order to avoid being left behind again in two years time.
Previous fixture history bodes very well for Gordon Strachan’s men too, with the Scots having won all four ever meetings with opening opponents Malta, scoring two or more goals in each of those victorious outings and three in two of the clashes.
Therefore, the Tartan Army enter proceedings against minnows Malta at a tasty 9/4* to net three or more goals once again in this latest match-up on the road.
Poland to dispatch trio of strikes or more
Poland have won all three of their previous encounters with Kazakhstan, conceding just a single goal from those match-ups, and they will be confident of making it four on the bounce as they possess such a talented roster.
Similar to the Scots in their upcoming fixture, Poland have also enjoyed plenty of goals in their meetings with the Kazakhs, having netted three or more in two of the three previous clashes.
So, their odds 5/2* to dispatch another trio of strikes during proceedings is definitely worth backing as part of this awesome acca, especially considering the likes of Bayern Munich sharpshooter Robert Lewandowski and Napoli ace Arkadiusz Milik will be featuring.
Muller to strike anytime for Germany
World Cup winners Germany rallied to an impressive triumph in Brazil two years ago and the defence of their global crown begins with a qualifying clash against Norway, after exiting from Euro 2016 at the semi-final stage to hosts France.
Joachim Low’s Die Mannschaft were a dominant force in qualifying for those European Championships, with Bayern poacher Thomas Muller having starred heavily, and the clinical frontman is 8/11* to find the target anytime for his nation in this latest appearance.
Northern Ireland to hold Czech Republic
Martin O’Neill’s Northern Ireland made history by reaching France this past summer, and proved they weren’t just there to make up the numbers, as they marched into the knockout stage.
The Green and White Army will be full of confidence for this World Cup qualifying campaign on the back of such a historic tournament for the nation, but having drawn their last two games against next opponents Czech Republic, another stalemate is 12/5* to occur.
