While the major European leagues may not be in action, that doesn’t mean that we don’t have another week of tremendous footballing action from across the globe. On that note, we have found a handful of tips that can help you boost your weekend accumulator.
Sunday 24th June
03:30 BST Los Angeles FC vs Columbus Crew
For former USA boss Bob Bradley, although his Los Angeles FC side may have endured their first blip as an MLS franchise last month, The Whites have battled back valiantly and a win in the early hours of Sunday morning will see them close the gap at the top of the Western Conference. Coming off the back of a 3-2 win against Sacramento Raptors and booking their spot in the quarterfinals of the US Open Cup, Los Angeles have now won their last three on the bounce. However, while the hosts have scored nine in their last three and are yet to go a single game without finding the net, Bradley’s side have conceded six in their last two and have registered just one clean sheet in their last eight. While we do expect The Whites to grab all three points against a Columbus Crew without a win in their last five, Colombus have scored six in their last four and also possess forward Gyasi Zardes in their ranks, the forward has 10 for the season and sits third in the MLS goalscoring charts.
Tip: Los Angeles FC win and both teams to score @ 10/3
13:00 England vs Panama
Well, although they may have left it late, England secured a crucial win in their opening matchup against Tunisia in Group G and a victory over Panama will secure their spot in the round of 16. Despite the game being tied at 1-1 until the injury time, The Three Lions were saved by captain Harry Kane. Along with scoring the first, the 25-year-old Tottenham striker has now scored in his last four games on the bounce for England and is currently enjoying his finest run of form on international duty. Along with scoring 30 Premier League goals last season, England’s captain has now found the net 15 times in 25 appearances for England. The last player to score more in their opening 25 games for England was Gary Lineker. With stats rivaling those of Ronaldo and Messi, after watching Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku score his own brace against Panama in the opening game, there is no reason to believe Captain Kane cannot add another two to his tally on Sunday afternoon.
Tip: Harry Kane to score 2+ goals @ 12/5
19:00 Poland vs Colombia
Two sides who will know that it is all or nothing come Sunday night, after both slipping to disappointing losses in their opening fixtures in Group H, a defeat for Poland or Colombia will see them crash out of the tournament. For Colombia, despite an attacking line-up that consists of Radamel Falco, James Rodriguez and Juan Cuadrado, The Yellows slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Japan and will also be without key defender Carlos Sanchez after he was sent off after three minutes. Carrying on their poor run of form, Colombia have now recorded just two wins in their last 11, however, they have found the net in nine of those outings and we expect them to at least record a goal on Sunday night. As for Adam Nawałka’s Poland side, much like their opponents, The Reds slipped to their own 2-1 defeat against Senegal and have now recorded just one clean sheet in their last six. If Poland are to claim any success, they will be looking to captain and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to lead by example, along with scoring 29 Bundesliga goals, the 29-year-old also has four in his last five for Poland. Backing both teams to score seems like the most logical bet here.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 10/11
