Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Slovenia in superb 9/2 special

| 12.10.2014

Coral are offering a sensational special bet, with Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Slovenia available at a nifty 9/2 all to win their respective Euro 2016 qualifying clashes.

Top seeds La Roja make the trip to lowly Luxembourg and the Scandinavian side encounter minnows Liechtenstein. Marek Hamsik, Martin Skrtel and co battle Belarus, while Slovenia line up against Lithuania.

Here’s why this is such an enticing and excellent value acca.

Luxembourg v Spain
Vicente del Bosque’s boys are massive odds-on favourites at 1/100 to emerge triumphant from their trip to Luxembourg, having smashed six goals past opponents in their in last two outings.

La Roja are 6/4 to score five or more in this encounter, against a Luxembourg side that have conceded four times in their previous two games and failed to register a victory in their past nine matches.

Spain striker Paco Alcacer has netted twice in as many games for the Iberian outfit and, having notched up four goals and four assists for his club in all competitions so far this season, is now set to strike again for his country.

Sweden v Liechtenstein
Hosts Sweden have won both of their two previous clashes with Lichtenstein, putting three past the minnows on each occassion. This makes Erik Hamren’s side strong odds-on favourites at 1/33 to triumph again, and 15/4 to enjoy a 3-0 scoreline.

The Scandinavian nation are unbeaten in their last three games, and boast several big names in their ranks, including Johan Elmander, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sunderland star Sebastian Larsson. Visitors Liechtenstein, meanwhile, are on an incredibly poor streak and have not won a game since August 2012.

Belarus v Slovakia
Travelling team Slovakia have never clashed with Belarus before, but are in fine form, with three wins from their last three outings. Captain and Serie A star Hamsik and his men are favourites at 6/5 to put Belarus to the sword, having also only lost one of their last four away games.

Slovakia recently claimed the scalp of giants Spain, with former Chelsea wingman Miroslav Stoch among the goals, and will be expecting to leave Belarus with all three points. The hosts, by comparison, have made a disappointing start to the qualifiers, and are yet to enjoy a victory.

Lithuania v Slovenia
Spirited Slovenia complete our quartet, and are evens to defeat rivals Lithuania after securing an excellent 1-0 over recent World Cup competitors Switzerland. The hosts have just two victories from their last five games, giving The Boys a great opportunity to pounce.

Fierce forward Milivoje Novakovic will be one of the visitors’ main threats, and netted the only goal against the Swiss. Now a veteran, this experienced Slovenian striker also hit a fantastic hat-trick against Norway in 2013, so will be hungry to add his terrific tally of 26 in 65 caps.
