Goals in opening game of the day

Live on Sky Sports Football

The two bottom teams in Group B meet in the early kick off, when Georgia take on Kosovo. It’s should be competitive, with Kosovo having scored in nine of their last ten games. Both teams to score is 2.47/5.

Rare point for San Marino

Andorra 1.434/9 v San Marino 11.010/1; The Draw 4.47/2

Might this be a rare opportunity for San Marino to claim a point? They drew games against Liechtenstein and Gibraltar last year, while Andorra are without a win in 16 games (D4 L12). Take a chance on the draw at 4.47/2.

Czech mates will get job done early

Czech Republic 1.232/9 v Belarus 17.5; The Draw 6.25/1
Kick off, 19:45

The Czechs can be proud of their performances at Euro 2020, where they reached the quarter-finals. They look like they will secure the play-off spot in Group E and should help themselves to a win here. Back to hosts to win half-time/full-time at 1.834/5.

Belgium can enjoy another big win

Estonia 75.074/1 v Belgium 1.061/18; The Draw 18.017/1

The Euros might have been the last chance for Belgium’s golden generation to win a tournament, but they look like they will comfortably qualify from Group E, where they are unbeaten after three games (W2 D1). In the last of those qualifiers they thrashed Belarus 8-0, so the 1.910/11 on offer for over 3.5 goals looks rather generous.

Points shared between struggling sides

Iceland 2.89/5 v Romania 2.727/4; The Draw 3.259/4
Kick off, 19:45

Romania have lost each of their last four games, but will fancy their chances of ending that run against an Iceland team that have only won two of their last 11 matches (D1 L8). The draw might be a result that suits both teams at 3.259/4.

Bulgaria kept it close against Euro 2020 champs

Italy 1.111/9 v Bulgaria 40.039/1; The Draw 11.521/2
Kick off, 19:45
Live on Sky Sports Red Button

The Euro 2020 winners will doubtless continue their impressive unbeaten record, which stretches back to 34 games under Roberto Mancini (W27 D7). Bulgaria lost the reverse fixture 2-0 and you can back an Italy win with under 3.5 goals at 1.9520/21.

Draw between shock Group J contenders

North Macedonia 1.9720/21 v Armenia 4.3100/30; The Draw 3.412/5
Kick off, 19:45
Live on Sky Sports Red Button

Armenia are the shock leaders in Group J after three games, having won all three matches, while North Macedonia are second (W2 D1), which included a 2-1 win away in Germany. Armenia beat the Macedonians only last year, so this should be closer than the odds suggest, with the draw looking a good bet at 3.412/5.

Poland keep conceding

Poland 1.548/15 v Albania 6.86/1; The Draw 4.1
Kick off, 19:45
Live on Sky Sports Red Button

Poland have only won one of their games in Group I (D1 L1) and their poor form continued into the Euros. In all, they have only won one of their last ten matches (D4 L5), conceding in nine of them. Both teams to score is 2.265/4.

Tight game between Group B rivals

Sweden 5.85/1 v Spain 1.758/11; The Draw 3.711/4
Kick off, 19:45
Live on Sky Sports Premier League

This could be the most fascinating game of the night, as the top two teams in Group B face off. Spain are top after an unbeaten start (P3 W2 D1) and built on that with a successful Euro 2020 campaign in which they reached the semi-finals. This included a 0-0 draw with Sweden in the group stage and under 2.5 goals is 1.774/5.
