Mythbusters: 4 favourites to swerve this weekend
We search all over Europe and the EFL for the underdogs who could cause a shock over the next few days.
Spain v Italy
Their Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Italy will surely be playing on the Spanish players’ minds coming into this game, as will the fact that they have failed to win this fixture in three attempts.
Considering, too, that Italy have not lost any of their last 10 matches – and have a genuinely exciting crop of young players to choose from – then the prospects of a home win suddenly appear remote.
Back the visitors not to lose this one at .
Netherlands v Bulgaria
The Dutch are in quite a state.
Having missed out on Euro 2016, defeat in France on Thursday evening almost confirms a failure to qualify for a second major tournament in a row.
That Bulgaria beat the Dutch in March should offer Sunday’s visitors further hope.
Petar Hubchev’s side have the chance to secure a historic result should they continue the form that has seen them win three of their last four matches.
Back them not to lose at .
MK Dons v Oxford
MK Dons have suffered at the start of this campaign, winning only one of four league games despite being widely-considered one of the favourites for promotion.

The U’s have won two of their three away matches this season, scoring six at Stevenage on Tuesday, and have impressed with their playing style under Pep Clotet.
Back them to avoid defeat at .
Swindon v Barnet
Swindon’s 3-0 defeat to Crawley last week extended their winless run at home to three matches and increased the likelihood of another upset in this game.
Barnet have already beaten one of League Two’s promotion favourites this season with a 1-0 victory over Luton, and overcame League One leaders Peterborough away in the Carabao Cup, too.
Back the Bees to upset the odds again by not losing at .
