Sportingbet Preview: Internationals

Our official betting partners Sportingbet give us the rundown on markets available for this week's international fixtures...

There's a host of international friendlies taking place this week, with plenty of mouth-watering fixtures for you to get your teeth into, so how about a winning midweek with Sportingbet?

Two of the biggest under-performers at last summer's World Cup meet at 8pm on Wednesday night, as France visit Wembley for a friendly international against England.

Both countries have tried to inject some fresh faces into their squads since their respective South African disappointments as they look to build for future international tournaments. The Three Lions are available at 11/10 with a draw at 21/10. Les Blues are 23/10 to seal an away win with Sportingbet.

With a tight game expected and goals at a premium, you can get 15/4 on England turning a half-time draw into a full-time win in the Double Result market. Andy Carroll is 7/5 to mark his debut with a goal, Jay Bothroyd is 2/1 and you can get 7/1 on Steven Gerrard netting the first goal of the game.

Scotland welcome the Faroe Islands to Pittodrie for their friendly showdown at 8pm on Tuesday. The Scots have been hit by a hatful of withdrawals from their squad but should still prove too strong for their lowly opposition.

They're priced up at 1/10 with the minnows from the Faroes a huge 18/1 to spring a major shock in Aberdeen, and you can get 6/1 on the game ending all square.

With Scottish supporters expecting goals, there's 7/5 available on Over 3.5 of them, with Steven Naismith 7/2 to score first with Sportingbet.

There'll be an African beat in Belfast from 7.45pm on Wednesday as Northern Ireland welcome Morocco. Nigel Worthington's side are 13/10 to win the match with Morocco 9/5 to grab an away win and the draw 11/5.

Chris Brunt has been making headlines in the Premier League with West Brom and he's 9/1 to net first and 3/1 to score at anytime. A 2-0 Northern Ireland victory is priced up at 9/1.

The Republic of Ireland kick off a tricky encounter at the same time as Norway visit Dublin. Giovanni Trapattoni's men are 13/10 to win with the Norwegians available at 9/5 and the draw 9/4.

With neither side comfortable in defence, you can get 13/10 on Over 2.5 Goals being scored in the game and 10/11 on both teams scoring in the Teams To Score market.
