Euro 2016 Tips // Accumulator // Gameweek 2


With the first set of fixtures about to end tonight, the first accumulator started well but with Poland failing to take their chances and Ukraine failing to score against Germany – it fell away, even with the 65/1 price.

The 2nd set of game’ accumulator is only 24/1 and for me has some great value:

Romania-Switzerland: BTTS @ 1/1 (Group A, 1700 KO – Wednesday)

Romania really took the game to France on Friday night, and could have scored more than the one they got. Switzerland on the other hand beat a poor Albania side 1-0 but were fortunate not to concede. The way Romania played in their opener gives me the belief that they will cause Switzerland problems, and with BTTS priced at Evs, it’s value for me!

Ukraine vs Nothern Ireland: Ukraine -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 23/20 (Group C, 1700 KO – Thursday)

Ukraine really gave Germany some problems on Sunday night – and against a much weaker Irish side I think the likes of Yarmolenko and Konoplyanka will cause a riot on the flanks. Ireland struggled to contain Poland, and were lucky not to concede more! The Asian handicap gives a little extra safety too, with only a small drop in price from the regular handicap.

Italy vs Sweden: Italy -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 8/5 (Group E, 1400 KO – Friday)

Italy were very impressive against Belgium, when they were heavily expected to lose. Against Sweden they can come out of their shell a little more, with Sweden fortunate to draw with Ireland last night. Darmian started on the wing, as his defensive qualities were needed to contain Belgium, but this time around I think Insigne will start and really terrorise the Sweden back four. The Scandinavians looked pretty toothless in attack – bar a few Ibrahimovic pot-shots were all they could manage.

Iceland vs Hungary: Iceland Win @ 13/10 (Group F, 1700 KO – Saturday) 

Iceland begin their first ever Euro’s tonight against Portugal, so it will be interesting to see how it goes. Defensively sound, offensively threatening – I see the likes of Sigthorsson and Sigurdsson causing a lot of problems for Hungary. This is a team that beat Holland, with pressure on, I’m not sure how they will do but in my belief they will do well!

This pays around 24/1!

Best of luck
