Bet of the Day: Aleksandar Mitrovic wincast appeals for Serbia v Paraguay friendlyPublished on: October 10, 2019Author: Jamie Clark
An Aleksandar Mitrovic wincast looks value on Thursday as Serbia face Paraguay in international friendly action.
The Red Star Stadium in Belgrade is a tough place for any visiting team. A vociferous home support is somewhat partisan, so the hosts’ in-form centre forward can channel that.
Mitrovic is having another purple patch for both club and country. He has five in his last three international for Serbia and 11 in 10 caps over the past 12 months.
In a Fulham shirt, meanwhile, Mitrovic has scored eight goals in his last 10 league games. He top the Championship goal charts after those exploits.
Plenty points to a Mitrovic wincast at odds of 15/8 with Paddy Power looking a value punt, then.
Serbia have won three of their last four matches at home with only Euro 2016 and inaugural UEFA Nations League winners Portugal beating them.
Mitrovic wincast appeals on form
Paraguay, meanwhile, have just two victories in their last 11 internationals. They are five places below Serbia in the FIFA World Rankings too.
An on-song Mitrovic is a problem for Paraguay. The South American side are lacking experience in defence as nobody at the back has 40 caps.
Serbia are more than happy to play to Mitrovic’s strength. He is a handful for opposition defenders because of his aerial ability and physical attributes.
Paraguay have conceded four goals in the two friendlies since the Copa America. They’ve kept just two clean sheets in the last year, so Mitrovic is worth a wager to get the better of them.
He is a talisman for Serbia. With 28 goals in 51 caps, he has already surpassed the great Predrag Mijatovic on their all-time top scorer list and now sits seventh.
As Serbia are favourites for victory, it makes sense to combine that result with a goal from their star striker.
Bet of the Day: 15/8 with Paddy Power, Aleksandar Mitrovic wincast in Serbia v Paraguay.
