International Football - Another tough 1 for Brazil

The last of the football before we wind down for the summer and once again there are some good value bets around to try and finish the season on a high note. Notable games are Brazil over in Uruguay where they will do really well to grab a win, and Ireland's game over in Bulgaria is a massive game in that group where Bulgaria must win to get back in it.

-3pts Bulgaria corner handicap (-1) vs Rep Ireland @ 11/10 (bet365) as mentioned, a must win game for Bulgaria. Expect Ireland to sit back and play for a draw as usual.

-1pt Stilian Petrov anytime goalscorer vs Ireland @ 13/2 (coral, extrabet)plays a much more advanced role for the Bulgarian national side. Also a threat from set pieces.

-1pt Ireland vs Bulgaria draw/draw half/fulltime @ 9/2 (william hill)could be a tight affair if an early goal doesn't go in

-2.5pts over 2.5 goals Uruguay vs Brazil @ 6/5 (extrabet) Should be end to end game with top strikers on show and Forlan in the form of his life

-2pts Diego Forlan anytime scorer vs Brazil @ 11/5 (general) Brazil will concede a lot of chances to Uruguay and with Forlan in this form he's likely to take 1 (or more)
-1pt Diego Forlan to score brace @ 14/1 (paddypower)
0.5pts Forlan hat-trick @ 80/1 (paddypower)

-1pt wincast - Forlan to score/Uruguay to win @ 4/1 (bluesquare, paddypower)A Uruguay win is not as unlikely as some think and if they do win, surely Folan will be on the scoresheet. Twice the odds of an outright win.
