It’s still all to play for in many of the groups as we head into the final round of qualifying fixtures for Euro 2020. Can Turkey beat Iceland to secure their place at next summer’s tournament? England look set to thrash Montenegro, while Albania will be hoping to overcome Andorra.
Here are the best bets for Thursday’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying games.
Turkey vs. Iceland – 11/14/19
The home side can secure qualification for Euro 2020 with a win over Iceland. Turkey have enjoyed a remarkable campaign which has seen them lose just one of their eight games. The team have scored 16 goals (at an average of two goals per game) and have only conceded three. Iceland are four points behind Turkey, but the visitors have conceded 10 goals so far. Iceland have lost two of their last four matches, while Turkey are unbeaten in that time. I predict that Turkey will book their place at the finals with a win on Thursday.
Pick: Turkey to Win – 1.67
England vs. Montenegro – 11/14/19
England only need a draw to qualify for Euro 2020, but I can see them recording a big win at Wembley. England’s 26 goals in six qualifying matches means the team have been scoring at a rate of over four goals per game in Group A. The Three Lions also boast the best defensive record in the group. On the other hand, Montenegro have conceded 15 goals and have only managed to score three in reply. They are without a win in Group A. Odds for an England win are a measly 1.04, but you can significantly enhance the price by backing the home team to score four goals or more.
Pick: England to Win and Over 3.5 Team Goals – 2.22
Albania vs. Andorra – 11/14/19
Albania still have a faint hope of qualifying from Group H, so I expect them to come out fighting against Andorra. Albania have picked up 12 points from their eight games, and have won three of their last five group games. They are three points behind Iceland, but have scored two more goals. On the other hand, Andorra have only won one of their eight games and have lost the other seven. Considering Andorra have scored just once in Group H, I can see Albania winning this match without conceding a goal.
Pick: Albania to Win and Keep a Clean Sheet – 1.49
