It might be Friday the 13th, but it’s far from being an unlucky night for fans of international football. There’s a fantastic selection of friendly matches taken place across the continent and we’re hopeful that it will be a night of intense drama.
With this in mind, we’ve picked six teams to all find the target at some stage during the night’s action. With the chance of winning nearly £190 from a £10 stake, it has to be worth a punt.
Poland V Iceland. 7:45PM
Both Poland and Iceland enjoyed fantastic qualifying campaigns and will be preparing for next summer’s tournament in fantastic spirits. Friday’s encounter in Warsaw should be a fitting encounter to celebrate their respective involvements at Euro 2016.

The hosts should be particularly confident about scoring, especially if they can provide the service for star man Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern striker scored more goals than anybody else in qualifying, and should give the home side a fantastic chance of finding the net for the eight in nine home games.
Nevertheless, Poland’s defence can be a little lacking at times and the overachieving visitors are more than capable of capitalising. Lars Lagerback’s men did fail to score in their last outing in Turkey, but they did come after sealing their place in France.
The quality of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigposson can give Iceland reason to be optimistic. If the visitors do score, we’d expect this selection to win.

Slovakia V Switzerland. 7:45PM
Followers of the England team will be all too familiar with Switzerland’s frailties right now. However, Vladimir Petkovic’s men did seal their place in France with relative ease and will be looking to start their preparations with a fourth win in five against Slovakia.
England are the only team to keep Switzerland at bay in eight matches this calendar year so the visitors should be confident about scoring. However, Slovakia had a fantastic qualifying campaign, which was underlined by a win against Spain, and will be hoping to begin their preparations in fitting style too.
The hosts did fail to score in each of their previous two home games, but that will all be forgotten for Jan Kozak’s side. Slovakia have more than enough quality to score in Trnava, and we’re backing them to just that.
Without being a standout fixture, this one certainly has the potential to be quite dramatic. Expect goals at both ends.

France V Germany. 8PM
The highlight of the night sees Euro 2016 favourites France and Germany collide at the Stade de France. If it lives up to the billing, it could be an absolute classic.
For Les Bleus, this contest offers a real chance to see where they currently stand after skipping this qualification campaign as a virtue of being the host nation next summer. Didier Deschamps’s men will be eager to make amends after losing to Germany in the World Cup quarter-finals and the quality of Olivier Giroud, Antoinne Greizmann and Paul Pogba is more than capable of finding the target on home soil.
Nevertheless, it’s hard to dismiss the quality of the current world champions and Joachim Low’s men should find the target too. Thomas Muller and co are more than capable of producing the magic whilst players like Andre Schurrle and Lukas Podolski will be eager to stake their claims for a place in next summer’s starting XI.
The quality will probably outweigh the amount of goal mouth action. But with a lack of competitive edge, the attackers could be given a little more space. We’re backing both teams to score.
