Not much action on Monday night but an interesting game in prospect between Switzerland U21 and Croatia U21. The Swiss are favourites to win this but have just wins over Liechtenstein and Latvia this year. Their previous games saw them lose several high scoring encounters to the likes of Portugal, Sweden and Germany. Croatia have recent wins over Sweden and Ukraine (away) and look like a decent side. Both teams to score looks a good bet at the available prices.

Also on Monday night Belgium U21 host Italy U21. Belgium U21 are unbeaten this year in 6 games and that includes a shock 3-1 win away to Mondays opponents Italy. However you have to go all the way back to 2011 to find an Italy U21 side that failed to score and better is expected of them in this return fixture. Both teams to score is the first leg of the double. In Northern Ireland, Portadown and Glenavon are both averaging 4 goals a game through their first 10 matches and this fixture produced two 3-1 results back in March and April. Over 2.5 goals makes the second leg of the double.
