We’re all set for another excellent evening of Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there’s some mouthwatering football on offer…
(Money back if the acca loses!)
Poland v Scotland
Gordan Strachan’s Scots travel to Poland in high spirits after defeating Georgia at the weekend, but will have to face a fully galvanised Polish outfit fresh off the back of beating Germany 2-0! The unexpected result against the World Cup champions makes Poland favourites to beat Scotland, who will be relying on a all-action defensive performance this evening.
Denmark v Portugal
The Portuguese are now managed by Fernando Santos, but the former Greek boss is undergoing an eight match touchline game for abusing officials at the World Cup! Nevertheless, he has a serious decision to make whether to start Cristiano Ronaldo from the off, after the world’s best player limped off during the defeat to France. Denmark have earned four points from two games so far, and will provide worthy opponents. Look out for former Premier League stars Daniel Agger and Nicklas Bendtner.
Serbia v Albania
The Serbians are without star attacker Lazar Markovic, with the Liverpool flyer limping out of the weekend’s fixture. However, they still have excellent players like Nemanja Matic, Branislav Ivanovic and Aleksandr Kolarov, and should have far too much for the Albanians.
Greece v Northern Ireland
Michael O’Neill’s Northern Irish side are Group F’s leaders, and the only team to so far have a 100% record – but they’ll face their toughest test away to Claudio Ranieri’s Greeks. The home side have no real injury concerns, but Norther Ireland are sweating on the availability of Gareth McAuley, and Corry Evans.
