Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
The club football season may be over but there’s still plenty of action to look forward to thanks to a weekend of international fixtures.
With the Copa America taking place in Chile, as well as a host of Euro 2016 qualifiers and international friendlies, it should be a cracking evening of entertainment. Hopefully we can make it even sweeter by bagging this cheeky treble.

Albania V France. 5PM
Didier Deschamps and his side don’t have any competitive football due to their role of host nation for Euro 2016. Nonetheless, Les Bleus will still want to put in a good performance as they head to Elbasan.
Last week’s 4-3 defeat to Belgium suggests that France will look for goals and the likes of Oliver Giroud, Antoinne Greizmann and Alexandre Lacazette will all fancy any chances that come their way against Albania.
The hosts aren’t a poor side by any means, but they aren’t quite in the same league as Les Bleus and we can’t really see Giovanni De Biasi’s men causing too many problems for the visitors. Even a goal would be considered a satisfactory success.
It’s always difficult to judge friendlies but France are the superior outfit by a considerable distance. In spite of the inevitable tinkering, we’d expect that gulf in quality to show.

Denmark V Serbia. 7:45PM
The Great Danes are going strong in Group I of Euro 2016 qualifying and can really give their hopes of qualification a significant boost by beating Serbia in Copenhagen.
Two goals from Nicklas Bendtner helped Morten Olsen’s men claim a crucial 3-1 win in Belgrade last November and the home crowd will be expecting a similar level performance in this return clash. Serbia on the other hand boast just one point in qualifying so far and are already facing the last chance saloon.
Serbia’s campaign will probably be best remembered for those unforgettable scenes against Albania. On the pitch, though, Radosav Curcic’s men have really failed to impose themselves. Their defensive unit, which boasts Branislave Ivanovic and Aleksander Kolarov, is strong but they just don’t boast any real threat in attack.
That lack of firepower could be telling here.

Uruguay V Jamaica. 8PM
Our final selection comes from Copa America action and we’re backing the holders to kickstart their title-defence with a routine win over guest nation Jamaica.
Oscar Tabarez’s men might not be overly fancied to retain their title but he is still blessed with an immensely talented squad, which is spearheaded by the impressive Edinson Cavani. The continued suspension of Luis Suarez will hinder their chances of goals later in the tournament, but a team that also boasts the likes of Abel Hernandez, Christian Rodriguez and Christian Stuani shouldn’t be pushed too hard for goals against an inferior Reggae Boys side.
Winfried Schafer’s side will be delighted to be involved in this event but it would be a huge surprise if they do anything noteworthy in Chile. Fans will be familiar with Giles Barnes, Wes Morgan and Jobi McAnuff, but even those players aren’t really of the standard needed to shine on the Copa America stage.
Uruguay remain a decent side in spite of the notable absences. Expect them to brush Jamaica aside.
