Tough matches on this week’s Predicta
- Credit: Archant
It is an international weekend in the football calendar and we’ve set some tough matches for the Predicta competition on www.torbayweekly.co.uk
There is an absolute belter to be played in Lisbon and a repeat of the 2016 European Championships final, as the current champions from Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo and all that, host World Cup winners France.
We stay on the international stage for a showdown between Switzerland and a Spain team in transition, but still capable of some amazing football.
Torquay United follow up that extraordinary FA Cup defeat to Crawley Town with a home clash against Boreham Wood, plus three more from the National League.
This week’s Predicta – can you beat chief sports writer Dave Thomas?
PORTUGAL v FRANCE - Portugal win 2-1
Both unbeaten, goalless in Paris last time, so something has to give - all set for Ronaldo to deliver.
- 1 Havant & Waterlooville 4 Torquay United 2
- 2 Big Cup night for the Gulls
- 3 Gary Johnson: "Our travelling fans were let down"
- 4 Torquay solicitors win Law Firm of Year award
- 5 Torbay Triathlon Club's bumper results amid bumpy weather
- 6 John 'flabbergasted' as he is shortlisted for top award

SWITZERLAND v SPAIN - Spain win 2-0
Spain won 1-0 in Madrid, and will be stung by 1-0 defeat in the Ukraine last month - they’ll have too much.
BARNET v BROMLEY - a draw 1-1
Peter Beadle has tightened the Bees’ defence, but both sides are struggling for goals, so another tight one.
CHESTERFIELD v MAIDENHEAD UNITED - Chesterfield win 3-1
Early surprises Maidenhead will score, but Spireites are finding some form at last and can win at home.
TORQUAY UNITED v BOREHAM WOOD - Gulls to win 3-2
In-form United on a mission after that Cup craziness and Wood also have promotion quality - belter coming up.
WOKING v YEOVIL TOWN - Yeovil win 2-1
New signing Joe Quigley has boosted Town - they can finally break their league duck at inconsistent Woking.
