England v Moldova - September 6th, 2013

England face Moldova at Wembley tonight in a crunch World Cup 2014 qualification match. The Three Lions thrashed their Eastern European opponents 5-0 back in September 2012 and another high-scoring, one-sided fixture is likely to happen this time on home soil. If England win then they may leapfrog Montenegro into top spot in  Group H, ahead of their pivotal clash away to Ukraine on Tuesday.

Roy Hodgson's men are unsurprisingly the red-hot 1/16 favourites to record the three points, while Moldova have been handed very long odds of 28/1, where as a draw can found at 11/1. England are available at 9/1 to win 5-0, while the game is priced at evens to contain four or more goals.

Meanwhile Rickie Lambert is definitely worth a punt at 9/2 (William Hill) to score the opening goal in his first England start, while Frank Lampard is worth considering at 6/1 to break the deadlock.

Money Back Special: If Danny Welbeck scores the last goal of the match, Paddy Power will refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score & scorecast singles on the match.
