AS International cards go, this is one of the worst ones I've seen in a long time with plenty of dead rubbers and meaningless matches which gives punters a bit of a headache trying to 1) Identify a match worth betting on 2) then finding value.
I've enjoyed a terrific November so far with 11 of my 13 NAP's landing, giving an 85% strike rate – overall since the start of the season 55 of my 78 NAP's have landed (71% strike rate), including 22 winning NAPs from 30 in Scotland which is really pleasing.
Had to dig deep today in what was close to being a a no net day, however, I'm happy take goals in France's trip to Albania.
There are also 6 games tonight from Serie A in Brazil that I might have a look at
Albania vs France (KO 7.45pm)
Dider Deschamps world Champions made heavy work of their 2-1 over Moldova on Thursday night but with Turkey only managing a 0-0 at home to Iceland, that win puts them in pole position to finsh as group H winners.
Turkey should be Andorra so three points is needed for their trip to Albania – yet to see any team news but whoever starts for France, there is going to be a considerable gap in quality.
Theres been 14 goals in Albania's 4 home matches and they are more than capable of findng the net at home against a France side who conceded in both matches against Moldova + 2 goals in Turkey.
Expected this to be around the 8/15 – 4/7 price for over 2.5 goals so was quite surprised to see it as big as 81/100. There's no denying that if France turn up they could deliver three goals themselves and with Albania far more competitive than they have been in recent years they could aid the goal count with a consolation
- Over 2.5 goals
- 81/100 (Marathonbet) (NAP)
