All across the globe international friendlies are being played with nations experimenting in the build up to Euro 2016 and the Copa America.
A red-rag to a betting bull in short…
Here are three of the best wagers from Saturday’s world footballing menu:
The Rode Duivels have struck three or more times in four of their last six outings, winning the first five before falling 2-1 to Portugal most recently.
Such goal power should be enough to give them edge against hosts who draw far too many blanks. Four in their previous seven internationals to be precise, including their last two, defeats to Ireland and Bosnia.
El Tri steam into this Copa America warm up on the back of 17 games without defeat.
Admittedly nine of the first 11 of those fixtures ended in draws, or with honours even at the end of normal time, but lately the peso seems to have plummeted in no uncertain terms.
Juan Carlos Osorio’s men have won each their last six games to nil.
Paraguay have shipped twice in each of their past two fixtures and failed to win any of their last four fixtures beyond their own border, so this clash in neutral territory is unlikely to see them at their best.
The Armenians have been serving up utter gruel to their followers over the course of the 2015/16 campaign, during which they’re failed to score in five matches.
Being shut out by Serbia, France and to a lesser extent Denmark is forgiveable, but failing to trouble Albania or Belarus’ rearguards is a more damning indictment of their ability to find the net.
Their central American adversaries have managed to bag more than a single strike in only one of their last eight games outside the homeland, with that coming against Carribean minnows Saint Kitts and Nevis.
It would be a surprise if these two fail to cancel each other out.
