Euro 2016 qualifying accumulator: Italy and Wales to win big

| 09.09.2014

UEFA’s decision to spread out the schedule of Euro 2016 qualifiers across three days may seem daft to some, but here at Ladbrokes towers it’s an absolute delight and the perfect excuse to enjoy a plethora of international football accumulators.

This latest edition focuses on Tuesday’s jam-packed schedule of games with our latest picks including wins for Italy, Wales, the Netherlands and Bosnia Herzegovina.

In a fresh twist on the ‘genre’ we’ve plumped for handicap results in each instance – read on to see why you should be backing a one-sided fourfold featuring goals galore at odds of just over 57/1 with Ladbrokes!

Bosnia Herzegovina (-2) to beat Cyprus @ 8/5

The Bosnians cruised to a 3-0 win over Lichtenstein last time out with two goals from Vedad Ibisevic and another courtesy of Edin Dzeko putting them out of sight before half-time.

With both strikers up and running this season a home encounter against a Cyprus side that lost 2-0 to Croatia last time out could result in a big win for the Dragons, with seven of their last eight wins at home featuring three or more goals for the hosts.

Netherlands (-1) to beat Czech Republic @ 13/5

The Oranje head into this game having won their last two meetings with the Czech by a 2-0 scoreline and despite a friendly defeat at the hands of Italy last week, the Dutch should have more than enough to see off a side that suffered defeat to an under-strength Team USA.

A run of four games without a win has seen Czech Republic confidence at an all-time low and with the Netherlands putting Brazil to the sword 3-0 in their last competitive game, a similar scoreline is a distinct possibility.

Italy (-1) to beat Norway @ 21/10

The Antonio Conte era got off to the best possible start against Holland with a 2-0 win that makes a big scoreline against a Norway team that failed to impress against England a bet worth backing.

On a run of 20 European Championship qualifying games without defeat, 10 of the Azzurri’s 17 victories during that run have come by a margin of two goals or more. Norway, meanwhile, have won just one of their last 12 games.

Wales (-2) to beat Andorra @ 1/1

The so-called golden generation get their first opportunity to shine here with what should prove to be a procession for the Dragons, given Andorra’s status as European minnows and all-round group whipping boys.

With the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey to call on, backing Chris Coleman’s side to score three or more here looks a near certainty.
