Although the major domestic leagues may not be back just yet, that doesn’t mean that we’re short of footballing action from across the globe. With the quarter-finals of the World Cup getting underway and the Irish Premier Division really starting to heat up, we have found a handful of bets that can help boost your Friday footballing acca.
Friday 6th July
15:00 BST Uruguay vs France
While Uruguay, led by their influential captain Diego Godin have now remarkably only conceded one goal in their last 630 minutes of football, Óscar Tabárez’s side will face by far their sternest test against a star-studded France lineup. Although Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann may lead the line, one man to watch out for is PSG striker and 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe. Amidst speculation of a world record-breaking move to Real Madrid, Mbappe scored a brace against Argentina last week and along with being awarded the Man of the Match for an eye-catching performance, the PSG teenager now has three in his last free for The Blues.
Tip: Kylian Mbappe to score anytime @ 2/1
19:00 Brazil vs Belgium
Arguably the biggest attraction in the quarter-finals draw, both Tite and Roberto Martinez will be looking for their iconic strikers to lead from the front. After finding the net against Mexico in their round of 16 showdown, PSG forward and the world’s most expensive player Neymar now has two in his last three for the Yellows and also has four in his last six. As for The Red Devils, the former Wigan boss will know his side must put in an improved performance after three goals in the last 15 minutes saw them scrape past Japan in an extremely hard-fought battle. After conceding two goals against both Tunisia and Japan, Belgium will be heavily reliant on Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku to carry on his own impressive form. The 25-year-old now has four goals already in this summers finals and is already Belgium’s all-time leading goalscorer. Although Brazil do boast a stellar defensive record that has seen them keep 17 clean sheets in their last 22 appearances, we do fancy this will be a game that produces chances at both ends.
Tip: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals @ 5/4
19:45 St Patrick’s Athletic vs Dundalk
A battle of two sides that are currently on a completely opposite run of form, after booking their spot in the next round of the Leinster Senior Cup last time out, Dundalk have stamped their spot as the best side in the Irish Premier Division and the visitors on Friday are marching towards the title. After beating Shamrock Rovers 1-0 last week, Dundalk have now won their last 12 matches on the bounce and striker Pat Hoban has continued to shine. Now heavily linked to a move to England, the 26-year-old has remarkably scored 20 goals in all competitions this season and even more astonishing, Hoban has scored in every match he has played this season. While they hold the best-attacking stats in the division, it has also been their defensive record that has continued to catch the eye. Dundalk have now conceded just one goal in their last four appearances and will look to carry on that record when they face a St. Patrick’s side who have lost their last six on the bounce and have failed to score in their last three outings.
Tip: Dundalk win to nil @ 8/5
