Poland and Holland to deliver, Croatia and Denmark vulnerable

| 01.06.2012

Poland are 1/25 to win on Saturday and Holland are 1/6, however there are many other markets to consider for Saturday’s international friendlies…

Denmark v Australia (16:00)
It has all been downhill for Denmark since qualifying for Euro 2012, being flung in the so-called group of death and losing their two matches in 2012. 13/5 appears a beefy price on Australia adding to the gloom. They have won seven in eight, and are unbeaten in five against European nations.

Poland v Andorra (16:00)
The Euro 2012 co-hosts have lost only once in ten matches and by picking this as their final friendly, they seem to be focussing on arriving in Warsaw with morale high. Andorra were one of two nations to finish qualifying pointless and have gone seven games without scoring. Poland are 5/1 to win 2-0.

Norway v Croatia (18:00)
Norway won four successive home fixtures before England visited last weekend and will sense an opportunity to get back on track against a Croatia side who have claimed victory in just one of their last three games and failed to fire in four of their last six on the road. The draw is a tempting 9/4.

Holland v Northern Ireland (19:00)
A run of five straight defeats, three of those by three goals, indicates that Northern Ireland have no chance in Amsterdam, but they can at least be optimistic of avoiding a thrashing. Holland haven’t won by more than two goals in eight outings. They are 3/1 to win by two goals.

Portugal v Turkey (19:45)
Clashes with World Cup podium placers Germany and Holland are creeping up on Portugal and they aren’t likely to carry much momentum into them after 0-0 draws with Poland and, more worryingly, Macedonia. They have at least kept three clean sheets in four, and are 11/10 to obtain another.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
