UNLIKE Greg it’s internationals galore for Jordan so let’s see how he fares.
He says: Won’t lie. I’ve not done much digging here but can’t see how Ethiopia have earned so much respect from the bookmakers in three days after their 7-1 drubbing by Algeria on Friday.
Other than home advantage they would have had to have done the same amount of travelling as the Algerians. Okay, they might not be as dominant on the road but will still be capable of goals and to score twice at 8-15 looks a bargain. Over 2.5 at 7-4 could be well worth a point with Algeria -1 at 10-11 with William Hill.
I’m torn on what to double it up with as I’m trying to stay away from the friendlies and I don’t think there will be as many cricket scores as there were in Asia compared to the other day.
Colchester to score at Coventry in League One is really tempting, as is Ecuador to score in Colombia at a price I’m quite surprised with. Both to score in Colombia’s game is also tempting but money on no suggests other punters don’t think so. You’ll be surprised how often I see no being taken and it comes in.
H2H suggests no also with Ecuador having last scored in Colombia in 2008 and BTTS last landing in this fixture in a friendly in 2007.
However, these groups of players are much better than years before, Ecuador especially and their group position shows it. They beat Argentina 2-0 away so why can’t they score against Colombia who conceded twice to Bolivia last week on the road. Altitude? Perhaps but Ecuador have the talent to give the Colombians a game.
Small stakes only as they aren’t the most confident but I like the chances.
