The international calendar is fully stacked over the coming week, with a double-header of Euro 2020 qualifiers coming up. Goals will be flying in across all corners of the continent, so here we’re taking a look at the best anytime scorer bets in this week’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Giants Spain are in action on Friday night as they travel to the Faroe Islands to take on one of the biggest minnows of European football. If you can work that one out, you’ll also be able to figure out that Spain are huge favourites and could run up a good few goals. The top scorer in the La Roja squad is Sergio Ramos, who scored in five successive international games prior to his last outing. The Real Madrid defender and Spanish penalty taker is 13/8 to hit the back of the net once again for his country this weekend.
The Republic of Ireland are also in action on Friday, as they travel to Denmark in a bid to maintain their 100% start to their qualifying campaign. The Boys in Green look a bit short of goals for this game though, and they come up against a Danish side who bagged three times in a 3-3 draw away to a usually miserly Switzerland side in their only fixture so far. Talisman Christian Eriksen is looking to put his Champions League final disappointment behind him, and he’s 9/2 to score on Friday.
Moving on to Saturday, we could be in for a great game of football in Osijek as Croatia host Wales. The away team have a player of their own looking to put some serious disappointment behind him in Gareth Bale. The Real Madrid forward is being forced out of a club he doesn’t want to leave, and has a real point to prove. That makes him dangerous against the World Cup finalists, who’ve struggled since last summer’s showpiece in Russia. Bale is 7/2 to hit the back of the net this weekend.
World champions France are in action on Saturday evening, as they play Turkey away from home. Les Bleus are aiming to make it three wins from three, after scoring eight goals in their two matches against Moldova and Iceland. Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud all scored in both of those games, with Giroud taking his international tally to 35 goals in the process. The Chelsea striker got the opener in last week’s Europa League final, and is 7/5 to follow that up with a goal in Turkey.
Finally to Greece, where Italy are also looking to continue their 100% start to qualifying. The Azzurri are rebuilding after failing to reach last summer’s World Cup, although Roberto Mancini isn’t afraid to call on the veterans available to him as he looks to reestablish his nation as a European force. Fabio Quagliarella is the oldest man in the Italian squad for this week’s fixtures, but the 36-year-old is fresh from finishing as the Serie A top scorer for the season. The Sampdoria striker is 7/4 to continue his hot streak with another goal here.
If you fancy ramping up the odds on our picks, why not throw all of our selections together in a five-fold accumulator bet? You can get a huge price of 240/1 on Ramos, Eriksen, Bale, Giroud and Quagliarella all hitting the back of the net this weekend.
