Win big on Brazil with our World Cup clean sheet accumulator
Few neutrals enjoy a one-sided contest at a World Cup, but here at Ladbrokes we have the perfect antidote to such a situation: A Win to Nil accumulator.
Back wins an clean sheets for France, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay and you could seriously cash-in with odds of just over 39/1 bringing a return of £408.13 off a £10 stake with Ladbrokes.
The Arena de Sao Paulo will make for an intimidating atmosphere when Croatia come calling and Niko Kovac is facing something of a selection headache with Mario Mandzukic suspended and Danijel Pranjic struggling with injury. Throw in the statistic that Brazil have shipped one goal in their last seven, and kept clean sheets in three Confederations Cup games, and this looks a good pick.
The Dutch have failed to find the net in their previous two meetings with Spain and could make it a hat-trick here having failed to score in friendlies against similarly strong opponents Colombia and France. La Roja have made a habit of winning to nil in recent months, winning and keeping a clean sheet in each of their last three warm-up games.
Ever since England were placed with Uruguay in Group D, journalists have gone to great lengths to highlight the South Americans’ defensive weakness, but the reality is that the Oscar Tabarez’s team have a good record in this respect, having kept clean sheets in four of their last five games heading into the finals. With Costa Rica winning just one of their last six, a win to nil looks a great pick.
Since their 3-0 comeback win over Ukraine in the play-offs, France have improved defensively, with four of their last five games being to nil victories, and the other being a 1-1 draw that came via a freak free-kick goal from Paraguay. Honduras may be defensively solid, but they struggle for goals and have won just three of their last 10 games going into the World Cup. Back the Blues.
La Albiceleste have a distinct advantage in this market, having already beaten Bosnia to nil in a friendly played last month. Not that you will need much encouragement given that Argentina have gone five games without conceding a goal. Bosnia have also failed to score in two of their last four games, making this too good to miss out on.
