Good day and welcome to our Sunday football predictions blog for 13th June 2021. Here we check out well in advance the games involving the leagues across Europe and beyond.
There’s usually plenty of games to choose from and this Sunday is no different. At the weekend I like to place three bets early on that involve a total of 9 selections (if there are 9 selections that I fancy). These bets are:
- Sensible Sixfold – 6 selections that have low odds, but still hold value at that price.
- Dynamite Double – 2 medium risk selections that both hold odds above evens
- Long Shot Single – 1 selection that is high risk and holds odds of over 3/1, where I am expecting an upset to happen.
I then share these Sunday football predictions here to hopefully aid you in your decisions, or at the very least to provide a different viewpoint to your own.

England v Croatia
England get their Euro 2020 campaign kicked off by going up against the hardest challenge in the group.
Croatia are not to be taken lightly. It was only three years ago that Croatia found themselves participating in a World Cup final. That said, the team hasn’t really evolved. The team is now well matured and no real new faces have come through to replace the quality of this generation on a like-for-like basis.
England have a lot of new talent integrated in to their team. Although they may not be gelling together immediately, they should be the ones full of energy and enthusiasm. Therefore, a low scoring game as England players find their feet in the tournament is what I am predicting here, but one that sees England scrape all three points.
Bodo/Glimt v Mjondalen
Bodo/Glimt are in second place in the Norwegian Eliteserien. They have secured 13 points from their opening 6 games and sit just one point behind the leaders, with a game in hand.
Mjondalen are in 7th place, with 5 points from 4 games and have proven to dislike going up against this particular team. The last twelve head to heads have resulted in 10 wins for Bodo/Glimt and two draws.
Bodo/Glimt could end up top after this match and with them holding the home advantage, I can certainly see them winning to keep the pressure on the others around them.
Stromsgodset v Rosenborg
Rosenborg are top of the top tier Norwegian league, one point ahead of Bodo/Glimt. They have won three of their last four games and are finding a lot of success in front of the opposition’s goal. They have scored 18 goals from their last six games.
Stromsgodset are fourth from bottom, in thirteenth place. They have four points from four games and have acquired a -2 goal difference. They were easily overdone by bottom of the league team, Brann last time out, losing 3-0.
With Stromsgodset leaking goals against weak teams and Rosenborg looking competent against every team they have met, I’m happy to include the league leaders here in to my sensible sixfold.
Netherlands v Ukraine
The Netherlands are fortunate enough to have this match being held in Amsterdam. That should be advantageous to the men in orange straight off the bat.
They also arguably have the stronger squad to select from in more areas of the pitch. The Ukraine have quality in their strikers, but lack any real talent in the midfield and defence.
Therefore, I believe it will be the Netherlands who will be able to control the pace of the game better and be more effective at bringing the ball forwards.
The Netherlands are not so one dimensional and have shown they have a number of avenues in which they can score from. Therefore, I am predicting them to win their opening match of the Euro 2020 tournament.
Botafogo RJ v Remo
Remo have been newly promoted in to the Brazilian Serie B league. Two games have been played so far and they have started their season well, securing a win and a draw.
However, Botafogo have had an equally good start to the season. They too are new to this division, but by way of relegation, rather than promotion. Last season these two teams were two divisions apart.
Botafogo are the more experienced at this level and should have the fitter and more talented players. They also have the home advantage and so I am confident they will be able to get the job done as they strive to bounce back up to the Serie A.
Brazil v Venezuela
Brazil start their Copa America campaign off with their first Group A match against Venezuela.
There’s not much value to be snapped up on this selection, given the vast difference in quality between the two teams, but with a lack of fixtures, it does buffer up the sixfold a little at minimum risk.
Brazil are on a seven goal win streak, which includes a win over Venezuela in a World Cup qualifier. Alisson, Neymar, Jesus, Fabinho, Richarlison, Fred, Vinicius Junior etc etc. The list of high quality, household names just keeps on going.
Venezuela have won one, drawn one and lost four in their last six matches, all of which were World Cup qualifiers. They don’t seem to cope with the pressure too well, so I see them being completely dominated by the dazzling skill of the Brazilians.
