Paul Higham is backing Serbia to get back on track with a win over Slovenia, with bets on Aleksandar Mitrovic and Benjamin Sesko...


England Superboost

Don't fix what isn't broken they say, so Betfair are going again with the exact same Superboost selection in Denmark v England.

You can back Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham each to be fouled 1 or more times vs Denmark at 1/12.00, Superboosted up from 1/21.50!

The same selection won at a canter on MD1 vs Serbia, with Kane winning his first foul in the 55th minute to add to a couple that Bellingham had already won in the first half.

Indeed, Kane (6) and Bellingham (4) were fouled 10 times combined in the opening game, and will no doubt be targeted once again.

Heading into the Serbia match, the duo had been fouled 55 times between them in their last 15 England appearances, but their average has now risen to over 4 fouls won per game across their last 16 international caps.

Back the Superboost here!

Slovenia v Serbia
Thursday 20 June, 14:00 kick-off
Live on ITV1

Both Slovenia and Serbia can take some positives from their Euro 2024 openers, but only Slovenia took a point so they'll come into this one having a bit more confidence even as outsiders.

Slovenia are 15/4 in the match odds while it's 17/20 for Serbia to recover from losing to England by winning in Munich - in a game that should hopefully be a pretty good one.

Both sides are now settled into the tournament after their second half displays, and if they start here like they finished on Sunday then there will be plenty of attacking.

Serbia only managed one shot on target against England but are too talented not to vastly improve on that, while Slovenia looked dangerous enough against Denmark to support backing both teams to score at 9/10.

Over 2.5 goals at 1/12.00 is also tempting after 10 goals were scored in thier last two meetings, but given Serbia's numbers throughout qualifying, both teams finding the net looks the best way forward.

It's a tough game to call, but Serbia have an edge on quality and a greater need coming in, so we'll back them to get back into the tournament with a win.


Back Mitrovic goal & Sesko fouls

Aleksandar Mitrovic didn't get much change out of England, but Serbia will have more possession this time around, and Denmark were just missing the finishing touches from putting a few more goals past them.

So it's fair to assume Mitrovic will get a few more chances, so we'll back him to score anytime at 13/102.30.

There were eight cards the last time these two played, and there's plent of needle between the teams - not to mention what's on the line in terms of the group.

Serbia gave away 19 fouls against England - giving Harry Kane some rough treatment in particular, but with several of thier midfielders and defenders putting the boot in.

Benjamin Sesko was fouled four times by Denmark, while giving away one himself, so those stats add up nicely to back Sesko for 4+ foul involvementss at 5/16.00.
