SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of England's clash with Croatia at Wembley on Sunday
England vs Croatia (Sunday, 14:00)
England begin their Euro 2020 campaign on Sunday afternoon when they welcome Croatia to Wembley.
Gareth Southgate has an awesome array of attacking talent at his disposal and some bookmakers have them as favourites to finally end their 55-year wait for a major international trophy this summer.
The Three Lions will be desperate to hit the ground running in their Group D curtain-raiser with Croatia in the English capital on Sunday.
Southgate and co need no reminding of the dangers that Croatia possess after Zlatko Dalic's side dramatically eliminated England at the World Cup semi-final stage three years ago.
As such, this naturally has the feel of a revenge mission for England, but I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.
If we combine over zero England goals, over zero England cards and over zero Croatia cards we can get some 4/5 (Bet 365) and that makes appeal.
Indeed, England didn't impress in their warm-up games, but with several first-choice players set to return, a big improvement is anticipated.
Southgate has some serious firepower to call upon and I fancy the Three Lions to breach a creaky Croatia backline that have conceded at least one goal in nine of their last competitive contests.
England, meanwhile have made the net bulge in 19 of their last 21 meaningful matches on home soil, not to mention they will be roared on by raucous Wembley crowd on Sunday.
With both teams bound to be right up for this one, I'll complete the Bet Builder by backing each side to see at least one card.
Referee Daniele Orsato will officiate this high-stakes affair, with the Serie A whistler averaging a lofty 4.84 cards per game across all competitions this season.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned combination has clicked in two of the last three meetings between these familiar foes and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula on Sunday.
- Over 0 England Goals, Over 0 England Cards & Over 0 Croatia Cards– Bet Builder – 4/5 (Bet 365)
