Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
This week’s announcement of the English football league season has already got supporters up and down the country salivating at the prospect of 2015/16, but there is still plenty of action to be enjoyed between now and then – starting with this weekend’s interesting schedule.
Saturday’s football highlights come from international tournaments in Europe and South America, as well as the Women’s World Cup, whilst there are also games across several less prestigious domestic leagues. We’re hoping this fixtures can serve up a decent winner with this 9/2 treble.
We’re backing three teams to all claim weekend victories and are hopeful of securing another weekend boom.
Kjellerup V Jammerbugt. 2PM
It’s the final day of regular season action in Denmark’s third tier and most stories have already been settled. Despite the end-of-term feeling, the impressive Jammerbugt should have too much for a struggling Kjellerup.
The visitors are third in the table and boast the fourth best away record in the division, scoring an impressive 25 times from 14 away matches so far. Conversely, the hosts have conceded 31 goals at the Bjergets and boast just three home wins all season.
In fact, Kjellerup are on a 10-game winless streak heading into this clash and are very unlikely to beat a side sitting 12 places above them in the league. Jammerbugt had lost three away games on the spin but will have restored their confidence with a 3-1 win at Ringkobing and should be optimistic about ending the season on a high here.
Jammerbugt were held to a 1-1 draw in the reverse meeting earlier this season. Expect them to learn from their mistakes and grab the win.

Sandefjord V Lillestrom. 2:30PM
Our second selection comes from Norway’s Tippeligaen and we’re backing a resurgent Lillestrom to continue their recent revival by sealing a fifth win in six as they travel to rock-bottom Sandefjord.
Runar Kristinsson’s men started the season quite poorly but are now starting to find their form as the goals of Fred Friday and Moryke Fofana drive the team back up the league table. The visitors have only won two of their past four fixtures on the road but the travelling support will be confident that the gulf in quality will shine through against an inferior home side.
Struggling Sandefjord are on a four-game losing streak at the Komplett.no Arena and have registered a total of just six points from a possible 36 overall this term. A goal difference of -20 paints a pretty bleak picture for Lars Bohinen’s men and we can’t see it getting any brighter against Lillestrom.
Lillestrom haven’t lost to Sandefjord in the last eight head-to-head meetings. That run should be pretty safe on Saturday.

Germany U21 V Denmark U21. 7:45PM
Horst Hrubesch’s Germany U21s were held to a 1-1 draw by Serbia in their Euro 2015 opener but the pre-tournament favourites should grab control of Group A back with three points against Denmark.
The Germans boast a star studded squad for this age group and there is a strong suspicion that they will follow the lead of the 2009 squad, from which several players graduated to the 2014 World Cup-winning side. Stars like Emre Can, Philipp Hofmann, and Kevin Volland all have the quality to be match winners and we’d expect them to prevail here.
Denmark aren’t a bad side by any means, as was evidenced by a 2-1 win over host nation Czech Republic on Wednesday. However, Jess Thorup’s men know that the final group game against Serbia is far more likely to be the one that decides their fate.
Germany were slightly uninspiring on the opening game but they can hit top form against Denmark. If they do, there will be only one outcome.
