AFTER cleaning up at the weekend, our bookings man Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) has spotted some Monday night Euro 2016 value.
Ukraine v Spain | Monday 19:45 | Sky Sports 1
Ukraine are certain of at least a play-off place as they go into their final Euro 2016 qualifying Group C game against holders and section winners Spain.
While Spain are on a seven-match winning streak in the competition, Ukraine are level on points with second-placed Slovakia but have an inferior head to head record. They therefore need a better outcome than Slovakia manage in their final game, in Luxembourg, to qualify automatically.
The referee in this one is a personal favourite, Serbian Milorad Mazic. He tends to struggle to keep his cards in his pocket.
Quite honestly there is far more on this game for Ukraine than there is for Spain. Either they will have something to protect or they’ll lose and get the hump.
In the previous game in Spain, the hosts picked up one yellow and Ukraine had three. Over the previous three games Ukraine have picked up two, three and five cards versus one, two and zero for Spain.
With a referee we like and more on it for the hosts I’m taking the 4/5 with William Hill on Ukraine having most cards in the match.
Ukraine v Spain – Ukraine to have most cards (4/5 William Hill)
