Another draw in Group J

Both of these teams are only a point behind second placed Romania in Group J and therefore have all to play for. They may have to settle for a shared point. In both cases, they wracked up the wins in their early fixtures, before enduring a string of stalemates and another draw is 3.412/5.

Luxembourg the value choice

Azerbaijan 2.6213/8 v Luxembourg 3.185/40; The Draw 3.211/5

With only a single point from their seven games in Group A (D1 L6), it’s hard to see why Azerbaijan are the favourites here. Luxembourg won the reverse fixture and have beaten Republic of Ireland in qualification. The visitors look a safe proposition in the Draw No Bet market at 2.111/10.

Swedes will not concede

Georgia 8.615/2 v Sweden 1.51/2; The Draw 4.47/2

Sweden are the surprise leaders in Group B, holding a two point advantage over the Euro 2020 semi-finalists Spain. The Swedes need a win to keep their qualification rivals at bay before they meet next week and can be backed to win to nil at 2.255/4. That bet has landed in four of their six qualifiers.

Clean sheet for hosts

Russia 1.162/13 v Cyprus 25.024/1; The Draw 9.28/1

Russia are another side that are currently top and needing a way to keep ahead of their rivals. In this case it’s in Group H, where Croatia trail Russia by two points. A home win looks assured and having kept clean sheets in four of their last five games, Russia look value to win to nil at 1.84/5.

Spain will concede in victory

Greece 10.09/1 v Spain 1.454/9; The Draw 4.47/2

Spain have made major strides this year, reaching the last four of Euro 2020 and the final of both the Olympics and the Nations League. Yet they have twice dropped points in Group B, drawing the reverse fixture with Greece and losing away at Sweden. With Spain conceding in four of their six qualifiers, it’s worth taking a chance on the away win and both teams to score at 4.03/1.

Dominant win for Croatia

Malta 28.027/1 v Croatia 1.141/7; The Draw 9.617/2

As discussed, Croatia are a couple of points behind Russia and simply must win this one. Croatia have scored in the first-half of their last three qualifiers and you can back them to win both halves at 2.26/5.

Narrow victory for hosts

Romania 1.635/8 v Iceland 6.411/2; The Draw 4.1

Romania are leading the race to book the play-off spot in Group J and with North Macedonia and Armenia playing each other, the hosts have the chance to extend their advantage. They won the reverse fixture 2-0, which is one of the four games from their last five, in which there have been less than 2.5 goals. A Romania win and under 2.5 goals is 3.55/2.

Another draw between rivals

Slovakia 2.245/4 v Slovenia 3.814/5; The Draw 3.39/4

Both of these teams have ten points and no chance of even making the play-off spot in Group H. With four draws from their eight qualifiers (W2 L2), Slovakia look too short here. The reverse fixture ended 1-1 and the draw could land again at 3.39/4.
