England Under-20’s embark upon their quest to win the Toulon Tournament this evening against a hugely unfancied Qatar outfit.
Gareth Southgate’s juniors can be backed as short as 1/4 to claim the spoils, with a gargantuan 7/1 attributed to their Middle Eastern adversaries and the draw the 9/2 alternative.
Going solely off the match-betting digits, it’s clear that anything other than an England win will send shock tremors reverberating around the soccersphere, which makes moving into the goals market an essential for punters seeking a worthwhile profit.
A price of 13/10 says there’ll be under 2.5 goals scored at the Stade L. Lagrange and Qatar’s tendency to avoid beatings gives this a real chance of producing a windfall.

Read on for the trio of arm-twisters that say there’s a great chance of this bet copping:
Despite their small-fry status in a footballing capacity, none of the Qataris’ last four collisions have churned out more than three goals.
This quartet of clashes featured games against reigning Euro kings Spain, as well as Colombia and Poland.
None of the three were able to record the rout their superior statures suggested were inevitable so there’s no guarantee of the Three Lions doing the same.
Moldova, Wales and Finland’s fledgling national set ups all restricted Southgate’s side to scoring just a solitary goal recently.
The forecast landslide of English goals never emerged in this trio of regional European Championship qualifiers against minnow nations and Felix Sanchez’s side are expert pummelling dodgers.
Qatar lost their previous two without scoring, while England have kept clean sheets in eight of their last ten.
With net-bulging an art unfamiliar to the underdogs and enforcing shut outs second nature to the favourites, the Three Lions can afford to take it easy once a two-goal cushion is established.
These facts also make a 7/10 bet on one or neither side bagging here a play-it-safe side bet.
