Saturday Betting acca: French test, Dutch goals and four other juicy bets

Another 'thrilling' weekend of international soccer awaits so why not spice things up with a Saturday accumulator, featuring six hot Planet Sport tips.

Despite the lack of Premier League games, there are still one or two interesting contests out there. One of them features a potentially tough test for world champions, France.

Planet Sport takes a look at six bets which you can use to form your Saturday accumulator. Good luck.

Don't forget, we also have a fantastic ACCA INSURANCE offer to help you out placing your Saturday night wagers. This promotion is available to new and existing Planet Sport Bet customers, and full T&Cs apply.

Ukraine vs France

We begin the acca with a game in group D - the 'D' presumable standing for draw.

There have been eight games in this group and six of them have all ended level - including the previous encounter between Ukraine and France.

Les Bleus have not been at the top of their game in recent months and they come into Saturday's match having failed to win any of their last four outings.

Ukraine have a strong home record and there's no reason why they couldn't hold the World Champions to another draw.

Since 2017, Andriy Shevchenko's side have only lost one home game - a 2-1 defeat to Germany almost a year ago.

What's more, last time they welcomed France to Kiev, Les Bleus were beaten 2-0.

Scotland vs Moldova

Scotland were pretty woeful against Denmark last Wednesday night. Nevertheless, Steve Clarke's men have an opportunity to get back on track this weekend when they take on Moldova.

Considering this is a side that has only won two of their last 23 games, Scotland shouldn't have too many problems securing all three points.

But then again, this is Scotland we're talking about - a side that rarely does things the easy way.

Clarke's men desperately need a win after falling to fourth place in their group. Their shaky qualifying campaign may inspire them to play with a little more attacking bravado.

With that in mind, a home win to nil is the bet to back.

Netherlands vs Montenegro

Louis van Gaal is back in management and it didn't take long for him to hit the headlines - even though those headlines had nothing to do with his current job.

Former Manchester United boss was criticised by Angel Di Maria who said the Dutchman was the worst manager in his career.

It's unlikely van Gaal will pay much attention to these comments. After all, he's got bigger fish to fry - mainly the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Group G is arguably the most closely contested with four teams separated by just one point. With that in mind, winning this weekend against Montenegro is a priority for Oranje.

Their last meeting took place at the 2006 World Cup when the Netherlands won 1-0 against, at that time, Serbia and Montenegro.

The hosts are pre-match favourites but considering they conceded goals in three of their last five games, our tip is to back a Netherlands win and both teams to score.

Latvia vs Norway

Norway are in a similar position to the Netherlands and they too could do with a win this weekend.

Stale Solbakken's side are fourth in their group but only trail leaders Turkey by a single point.

Latvia have had some mixed results in recent months which included an impressive 3-3 draw with Turkey and a disastrous 7-1 defeat to Germany.

Erling Braut Haaland , Norway

Nevertheless, the visitors have enough quality to handle the Baltic state in Riga - including one of Europe's hottest properties in Erling Haaland.

The Borussia Dortmund ace only has one goal to his name in these qualifiers and he'll be keen to change that this weekend.

With that in mind, the over 2.5 goals bet looks the one to back here.

Accrington vs Shrewsbury

The international break might have put the Premier League and Championship out of action but fans can still look ahead to a plethora of games in League One and League Two.

One of the games on offer features a clash between Accrington Stanley and Shrewsbury Town.

Accrington's run of three straight league victories came to an end following a 2-0 defeat to MK Dons last weekend.

Shrewsbury would certainly snap your hand off in exchange for a winning run like that. The side kicked off the season with four consecutive defeats before finally breaking that run by beating Gillingham 2-1 at home.

Despite that one solitary win, Accrington remain the favourites in this one. Considering the both teams to score market has proved successful in four of the last six head-to-heads, our tip is to back it again alongside a home victory.

Tranmere vs Hartlepool

One division down, there's an interesting clash brewing at Prenton Park.

After five games, Tranmere Rovers find themselves down in 19th place and with five points to their name.

Hartlepool, who have only played four games, have enjoyed a far better start and currently sit fourth thanks to a haul of three league wins.

Considering they're away from home, the price is a generous one for United in the outright market.

That, plus the fact they haven't lost to Tranmere in five games, edges us in Hartlepool's direction.
