Thursday night signals the start of an entire week of international fixtures and we’re looking to take advantage with this 11/1 BTTS treble placed at Coral bookies.
The road for France is already fierce and the extension to 24 teams qualifying means that more teams than ever have a genuine chance of advancing to the proper tournament. That gives teams all the incentive they could ever need and should hopefully lead to some entertaining attack-minded contests.
Here are our BTTS recommendations for Thursday night:[toggle title=”England 3/1 to beat San Marino (from 1/150) Read on ….”]We all like free money don’t we.

Lithuania V Estonia
Whilst all eyes will be on England’s rout at Wembley, fellow Group E rivals Lithuania and Estonia do battle in Kaunas.
Neither side has much chance of beating England or Switzerland to a top two finish but a third place play-off spot is a realistic shout, particularly with San Marino in the group. Both sides boast three points after the opening set of fixtures so a victory here would put the winner firmly in the driving seat in the race for that play-off spot.
Estonia might have failed to score in their last three away games but they will fancy their chances against a Lithuanian side that is roughly on the same level as them. Meanwhile, the hosts have scored in four of their previous five international fixtures so Igoris Pankratjevas will be confident of seeing his men extend their 100% start.
Either team could win this one and the incentive for three points could scarcely be greater. Fingers crossed that will lead to an exciting affair.

Macedonia v Luxembourg
In Group C, both Macedonia and Luxembourg were involved in BTTS winners last time out and we think there is a great chance that the trend will continue in Thursday’s showdown.
Macedonia may have been thrashed 5-1 by Spain but the fact they scored against one of international football’s power houses is a source of optimism and they should be in for a much easier ride against the minnows of Luxembourg.
However, the visitors did pick up a decent 1-1 draw against Belarus in their opening fixture and that success wasn’t a one-off for Luc Holtz side either. In fact, they picked up a fantastic 1-1 draw with Italy just before the World Cup and additionally found the net against Belgium too.
Luxembourg are hardly going to be world beaters but they’ve shown great improvements and now boast goals in four of their last five international fixtures, with most of those coming against much stronger opposition than Macedonia. There is absolutely no reason they should fear the trip to Skopje.
Nevertheless, Macedonia enter this fixture as odds-on favourites for a reason and we fully expect them to find the target too.
BTTS Yes @ 6/4 with Coral
Sweden V Russia
The standout fixture of the night comes from the Friends Arena as Sweden face Russia in a crucial Group G encounter.
With two teams qualifying automatically for the tournament in France, both of these nations will be confident about securing their places at Euro 2016. However, with Austria and Montenegro also holding genuine hopes of progression, three points would be a much welcomed addition for the winner.
That is especially true for Sweden, who drew their opening fixture in Austria. Losing this one wouldn’t be catastrophic, but it would leave Erik Hamren’s men with a lot of work to do. Fortunately, star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to be ready for a return following a short-term injury.
For Russia, this is a bit of a bonus game and three points would see them place one foot firmly into the tournament. Confidence will be sky high after hitting four past Liechtenstein and the likes of Alexander Kerzahov should give Fabio Capello\s side plenty of firepower.
Of all the games on Thursday night, this is the most exciting. Hopefully the two teams won’t disappoint.
