Clearly it shouldn’t have been a penalty but despite a questionable decision for the winning goal Switzerland were much better than Northern Ireland in their first World Cup playoff match in Belfast. If the home team could not create one decent chance on their own patch its difficult to see them scoring during the return fixture today. The Irish must score and that makes them vulnerable at the back so the recommendation is to back SWITZERLAND to win to nil at 4/5 with Betbright.
In the other second leg match Croatia cannot be opposed against Greece but they may settle for a draw. Croatia travel with a 4-1 advantage from the first match and are massively long odds-on to qualify for the World Cup finals in Russia next summer. Once they have dealt with a fast start from the hosts Croatia can stifle their opponents and the match so the most likely outcome is the DRAW, 5/2 with Betfair.
You won’t get rich backing horses at 1/4 but that equates to a 25% return on investment for a few minutes work. Might Bite is easily the best horse in the 2.20pm race at Sandown but backers may have some hearts in their mouths moments. The horse can often try to throw away races run but the risk is worth it for money backers today who can invest in MIGHT BITE at 1/4 with Paddy Power.
Houblon Des Obeaux (3.30pm Sandown) has won just once since December 2013. However, that means the horse has dropped down the handicap and could be on a winnable mark. He had some honourable efforts in defeat last season which showed the ability is still there. The trip is not ideal today but the form is there so HOUBLON DES OBEAUX looks a good bet at 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
