I expect both teams to score at Ullevaal Stadium. Spain have enough quality to score, no doubt about it. The question is for Norway, is it able to score? I think so. Norway is a well-organized team of experienced coach Lagerbach. They have scored in all six games so far, including the one in Spain
NORWAY vs SPAIN @@ Both team to score, odds 1.85

Extremely important match for both teams. Bosnia only wants a win, and the guests may be happy with the tie. It will be a tough battle, where it will be judged in detail. I expect a close match due to Finland and I'll bet on a few goals
ITALY vs GREECE @@ +2.50 Over, odds 1.75

Im betting on finland. Dzeko out and bosnian management is a mess. First manager leaves the team and then someone talks him to come back. Does he really want the job or believes in their chances and the players do know it. U2,5 is a safe bet but small stake to finns. (Im finnish so i might have blue+white glasses on :D)

Scotland vs San Marino

Group I resumes on Sunday when Scotland look to try and end their disappointing group phase of the qualification campaign with a positive finish as they host minnows San Marino in a 5pm BST kick-off at Hampden Park. The Tartan Army have the consolation of a play-off spot to look forward after sealing that in their UEFA Nations League run but there are problems running deep through this Scottish side that need addressing as soon as possible.

Scotland were on the end of a hiding against Russia as myself and @allyhibs expected. It was disconcerting that Steve Clarke doesn't seem to have any patience with the mistakes being made by his players. A new philosophy was needed but results just haven't come yet under Clarke. The team now lies in 5th place in the group and are now 4 points behind third placed Cyprus with three group games to go. The play-off spot might have been secured but if Scotland don't start winning their games then their UEFA seeding for future qualification campaigns will be seriously damaged.

San Marino are arguably one of the worst teams in international football. Such is their awful record that their Wikipedia page actually lists the games in where they haven't lost. The last time that happened was a 0-0 draw at home to Estonia back on 15th November, 2014. The last time they avoided defeat on the road was a 2-2 draw away to Liechtenstein on 20th August, 2003.

It goes without saying that Scotland should win this. If not, then Clarke should resign on the spot. I think this is a good game at the right time for Scotland. Get some goals, keep a clean sheet, and build some confidence. I would be surprised if Scotland didn't feel a sense of freedom coming into this game. If they can score early then they can win by 3 or 4 goals. If not then it might be a less spectacular score-line. If I had to back a correct score I'd say 4-0 for Scotland.

I think Scotland under 5.5 is tremendous value. Took 2.08 with Smarkets. Long way to go for Scotland from where they are.

The quality is on the Croatian side, with Montric, Rikic and Pericic being top players. However, Wales have the highest historical record so far - two wins from two matches. He has recorded three wins with a 0-0 in his last four home games. Wales games tend to score low, so I expect no more than two goals in Cardiff
WALES vs CROATIA @@ +2.50 Under, odds 1.62

The Netherlands equals 12 points and so needs victory points. The Oranges need the three-pointer from this fight and I believe they will win. Quality is on their side so Ronald Koeman's players can win with at least two goals
BELARUS vs NETHERLANDS @@ -1.50 Ah NETHERLANDS, odds 1.65

Cyprus v Russia; 18:00

Betting suggestion: Russia -1 @2,05 Pinnacle

Short preview: With a 1-2 win over Kazahstan in last round, Cyprus with 10 points, is “comfortably” sitting on the 3rd spot, which of course doesn’t mean anything special, when you see Belgium and Russia already at 18 and 21 points. Cyprus lost 3 matches in this group – besides Russia and Belgium, they lost against Scotland too and of course, they have zero chances of qualifying on Euro. Russia on the other side won their last match against Scotland with 4-0, their goal difference is +18, they have 6 wins in a row, with the only defeat in those qualifications against Belgium away, but they will play against Belgium at home in next match… In any case, Russia is currently amongst the best 2nd placed teams, which means that they can directly qualify even as a second-placed team.

 

 

Slovenia v Austria; 20:45

Betting suggestion: over 2,5 @2,16 Pinnacle

Short preview: In group G, everything got even more complicated as Slovenia lost in North Macedonia. Poland “jumped” a bit away again, winning in Latvia, while Austria took the “Slovenian” place with a win over Israel at home with 3-1. Austrians were losing 0-1, but they were a better side and until the end of the match succeeded to turn the result in their favor. Slovenia played one let’s say acceptable and one catastrophic half-time against North Macedonia, and while they didn’t score from their chances in the first half, Macedonians did in the second, and the final result should probably even stay at 2-0 as Slovenia got a pretty much offered penalty in last minutes. With the current position, with the fact that they play against Poland in the last round of qualifications, truth is that only 3 points somehow count for Slovenia, and they will have to attack that. On the other side, if anyone could accept a point, that it’s Austria, as they play against North Macedonia at home and Latvia away in the next two fixtures. In any case, Austrians have a decent team, with plenty of players playing on a really high level,  being regulars in their clubs, and that’s the reason which should make the difference at the end… In any case, Slovenia will play in front of a sold-out stadium, they won against Poland and Israel in the last two home matches and everything is possible…

 

 

Poland v North Macedonia; 20:45

Betting suggestion: Poland -1 @1,89 Pinnacle

Short preview: North Macedonia cooked things up by beating Slovenia in the last round, and now they are on a third position with the same number of points. They won’t have an easy match until the end as they play against Austria and Israel, therefore they will have to show something more than just defend and try with counters in the next fixtures. The main reason why I am suggesting this bet is that they still have some problems with the lineup, especially in defense and with all the spaces they were letting open for Slovenia in the first half, I think that they will find themselves already 2-3 goals behind the opponent, especially when you consider the enormous form of Lewandowski. Without a doubt, Macedonia has a solid team, especially defensively, but as mentioned they have some injury problems, some players aren’t 100% fit and Poland should use that and “finish” the question about the 1st place. If Slovenia gets points against Austria, Lewa & the company can make a huge step to the qualifications.

That's a great shout Stevie, Scotland will obviously win the game comfortably but I don't think they're capable of scoring 6 against anyone, 2.00 looks great value, odds have dropped now to around 1.78 best price, value's gone I think.

In the second group of qualifiers impressions the national team of Ukraine, which leads the standings, is followed by Portugal's Fernando Santos, who has one less game. Remarkable and effective set so far, while they have midfielders for scoring
UKRAINE vs PORTUGAL @@ Both team to score, odds 1.95

Bulgaria has no chance in this match. It is the worst team in the group and the confidence of the players is low. In addition, coach Balakov will not have two key defenses available. I think England will benefit from the situation. The Lions have to win this fight. Even more, I expect the South men to win at least two goals.
BULGARIA vs ENGLAND @@ -1.50 Ah ENGLAND, odds 1.65

Bulgaria vs England

Group A enters its final few games with everything to play for once again after the last round of matches. England travel to Bulgaria looking to bounce back from their 2-1 loss away to Czech Republic. This is a 7:45pm kick-off on Monday night and there is the possibility that England can seal their place at the finals if they win and Kosovo lose at home to Montenegro.

Bulgaria are not the force they once were in world football. The days of Hristo Stoichkov and that awesome side of 1994 are long gone. Head coach Krasimir Balakov was a key member of that 1994 side but he's overseeing a team that is currently bottom of the group and must now wait to see if they qualify for the play-offs. It's now 10 matches without a win for this Bulgarian side but with 5 draws in that run they are a team that are proving tough to beat. This is particularly the case at home where they have only lost 1 of their last 6 matches on home turf.

England were not at their best against Czech Republic in their last game and Gareth Southgate will be demanding more. His side still top the group but now that is only on the basis of their head-to-head record against Czech Republic. A defeat here could throw the group wide open and risk leaving qualification coming down to an away trip to Kosovo.A win would put the advantage firmly back in England's favour. The only problem is that England have failed to win any of their last three away games.

I think England will react well to the defeat against Czech Republic. I've said all along that I'm not the biggest fan of Southgate as a tactical mind so he is vulnerable to be out-thought by the opposition manager. Bulgaria are a tough side to break down on their own patch so this will be a tricky match. I can see a narrow one goal win for England in a dogged affair. Don't expect a classic.

England HT/FT @ 1.75 with Coral

BTTS @ 2.38 with Unibet

I expect under 2.5 goals here. The main reason for my choice is the way the guests play. The Republic of Ireland has scored less than 2.5 goals in all six games so far. Knowing that Switzerland failed to score in Saturday's clash against Denmark, I expect a low scoring match at Stade de Geneve.
SWITZERLAND vs IRELAND @@ +2.50 Under, odds 1.62

Greece is used to losing recently, you can't trust it at all. Bosnia burns to victory, but away from home. Due to the criticality of the match, I expect a close match without much risk from the two teams. It will be a close match with few goals and few goals, few goals are significant
GREECE vs BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA @@ +2.50 Under, odds 1.62
