The football juggernaut rolls on, although this week and next it's not the usual suspects in club football, but they, plus other players from leagues around Europe and the world, are playing for their countries in order to qualify for Euro 2016 in France.

For that reason, we've picked out four other big matches taking place that are worth betting, and we explain what it is that makes them so ripe for a good return on your deposit.

Arguably the biggest news in football this week came with the closure of the summer transfer window. Some players got the moves they desired, while others found their way blocked by the small matter of chairmen wanting to hold them to their contracts. Saido Berahino may be considering a strike, but while he is under contract at West Bromwich Albion, even in the wake of Tottenham Hotspur's failed bids, this looks like a fruitless task.
The transfers that happened, and those that did not, could change the form and fortunes of teams up and down the Premier League. This will inevitably change your betting too. Take a look at how we think the transfer window has moved your goalposts.
