Our Saturday football accumulator is an 11/2 treble that comes courtesy of selections from all…
With the Europa League starting on Thursday night, we’re officially announcing that football is back. It feels like it’s never been away!
Saturday’s action is mainly restricted to Scandinavia, although there are other leagues in action across the world too. Nonetheless, there’s more than enough opportunity to bash the bookies with this 4/1 treble.

PK-35 V Haka. 4:30PM
Our first selection comes from Finland as high-flying PK-35 welcome Haka to the ISS Stadion. The hosts are in great form and we expect them to continue that with another three points.
PK-35 are in great form, sitting just one point below leaders PS Kemi. Shefki Kuci’s men are also in great scoring form, hitting 24 from 11 matches so far. With Haka conceding 10 in just five away games, it’s hard to see the hosts not taking advantage.
Haka do score a few goals themselves but PK-35’s defence has been particularly strong at home, conceding just three in six matches so far. If the hosts can keep it tight then you’d always fancy veteran striker Pabolo Counago to grab the goals needed to win.
The visitors are a decent outfit at this level and should provide a test. Unfortunately for them, PK-35 are ready to pass it with flying colours.

Norrkoping V FF Malmo. 5PM
After 13 rounds of matches in Sweden’s Allsvenskan, defending champions Malmo are in a slight spot of bother as they sit fourth in the current standings. However, we’re backing Age Hareide’s troops to get their title bid back on track with victory at Nya Parken.
It has been a bumpy start for Malmo, who enter this clash two points behind Norrkoping. On a more positive note, they have picked up form in the past fortnight or so while top scorer Jo Inge Berget will fancy his chances of firing the visitors to a crucial victory.
Despite their position, Malmo are the division’s joint leading goalscorers and that firepower should serve them well. The hosts are playing well but have lost four of the five head-to-head matches and that inferiority could shine through here.
This is a difficult test for the champions, but they need to step up. We’re backing them to do just that.

Germany Women V England Women. 9PM
Mark Sampson’s Lionesses have been nothing short of spectacular at this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. However, following their shattering late loss to Japan, we can’t see them bouncing back against a much stronger Germany.
The Germans will be extremely disappointed to have lost to arch rivals USA, but Silvia Neid’s side are still one of the best teams in international football. They showed that with the 3-0 win at Wembley last November and their dominance will probably be felt again here.
In Celia Sasic, the Nationalelf boast the best striker in women’s football right now and there’s every chance that she will add to her six goals in Canada. When you also factor in the extra day’s rest, plus the stronger depth of squad, it is hard to see England causing an upset.
No matter what happens, England can lift their heads high. Unfortunately, we can see their tournament ending on with a whimper.
