The focus switches back to the International scene this week and four very important European 2018 World Cup Play-Off games to take in over Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Yes, there’s plenty at stake as we’ve Croatia, Greece, Northern Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Denmark and the Republic of Ireland that will be looking for a place in the finals next summer in Russia.
We get going on Thursday (9th Nov 2017) as Croatia take on Greece and with both sides generally producing low-scoring games at the moment then this could be the way to go here.
Also on Thursday, we’ve Northern Ireland hosting Switzerland and with the Swiss heading into the game having lost just one of their last 16, including winning 7 of the last 11 ‘to nil’ then it’s not going to be an easy task for Northern Ireland.
Onto Friday and it’s Sweden taking on Italy next and with Sweden scoring just 2 goals in their last five against the Italians then this could also be a frustrating game for the home side.
We end on Saturday with Denmark entertaining Rep Of Ireland and with the Danes having drawn 4 of their last 9 then a stalemate is sure to be popular here.
As always here at JUICESTORM we’ve got all the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats – So, let’s get cracking!
