It’s unfair that we’ve got to wait another nine days before we see The Reds back in action, I know. Although as Dan Thomas points out in his article ‘International Break Comes At The Right Time’on our blog this week, this break in action could prove to be a benefit, rather than the usual hindrance, to Liverpool.
So while we wait and pray that all our lads come back unscathed, we may as well enjoy some of the international action on display.
There are numerous games over the coming days and RedsBet are offering a number of tasty FanBoosts that you may well be considering for your accas.
France, Spain & Scotland to Win – WAS 3.75 Now 4.25* – Thursday 11thOctober
Captain Andy Robbo.
Has a nice ring to it that, doesn’t it?
The left back’s national team go into this game off the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Albania in the first game of Group C1 in September. A double from Steven Naismith gave Alex McLeish’s side the perfect start to their UEFA Nations League campaign and their trip to Haifa should extend that start.
Israel have only won one out of their last eight fixtures and Scotland have a brilliant recent record over their hosts, winning the last three times they’ve met.
There’s every reason to believe they will continue that run on Thursday night.
Israel v Scotland – 7:45pm (UEFA Nations League)
Wales v Spain – 7:45pm (Friendly)
France v Iceland – 8pm (Friendly)
England & Switzerland Both to win – WAS 19.00 Now 23.00* – Friday 12thOctober
‘One of the best central defenders in the world’ comes up against England for the second time in three months on Friday night, and last time out Dejan Lovren was victorious in the game that booked their place in the World Cup final.
However things have dramatically gone downhill since their glorious summer in Russia for Croatia. A devastating trip to Spain last time out saw the World Cup runners-up thumped 6-0 bringing them right back down to earth.
Gareth Southgate’s team didn’t bring football home but they will be seeking revenge for the heartbreaking semi-final defeat in July.
In front of an empty stadium due to Uefa sanctions against the hosts, England could take advantage of the lack of atmosphere to get their revenge and seal their first win of the UEFA Nations League.
Croatia v England – 7.45pm (UEFA Nations League)
Belgium v Switzerland – 7.45pm (UEFA Nations League)
