For many, the international break is frustrating. A break from league football and their club side. But not us; here at NetBet, we love an International break! The upsets, the possibility of history being made in every nation. It’s the last round of qualifiers so the chips are down and it’s time to see who are making it on the plane to Germany next summer!
We’ve had a word with our football tipster and put together an acca that could win you a whopping £38.42 from just a fiver based on the latest football odds.
Italy to beat North Macedonia – 1.11
It’s the European champions in action. The Azzurri view this as a must-win game. Fourth in Group C, North Macedonia find themsleves trailing behind England, Ukraine, and Italy with only two victories.
Despite their determined efforts, the prospects of a surprising upset against Italy appear exceedingly slim. The return of Juventus star Federico Chiesa from injury adds firepower to the Italian arsenal. However, the absence of Lazio striker Ciro Immobile is notable.
Italy’s road to qualifying has been a bit of a rollercoaster. They’ve won three out of six games, lost two, and tied one. They’re in third place Group C, hoping to climb up the ladder by beating North Macedonia. The Azzurri have secured a playoff spot, but they’re three points behind Ukraine in the direct qualification spots. They’ve got a game in hand, setting the stage for a big showdown against Ukraine on Monday; should they win this one.
Wales to beat Armenia – 1.83
The Dragons, having surprised Croatia in their recent group match, are still working towards securing a spot in the European Championship finals. Despite the absence of experienced midfielder Aaron Ramsey due to injury, we’re leaning towards Wales.
The positive update for the visitors is the return of Tottenham’s rising star, Brennan Johnson, to the squad. This could be a huge win that helps them take a massive step forward towards qualification, but it won’t be an easy game. However, they have shown their star quality of late and Armenia away is certainly winnable.
Armenia will be eager to break their three-game losing streak as they face Wales in the Euro 2024 qualifier. The Armenians trail the top two in Group D by three points, making Saturday’s match crucial for them.
While there are no new injury concerns for the home team, defender Varazdat Hayoran is sidelined for one game due to yellow card accumulation. But for Wales, this is a chance to keep up their winning streak. It’s second vs fourth in the group. Wales could move six points clear of Armenia if they win this one.
Croatia to beat Latvia – 1.10
Croatia ran out 5-0 winners the last time these two sides met. Croatia are aiming to bounce back from a tough loss to Wales as they take on Latvia at Skonto Stadion in their second-to-last group game.
Despite coming off the bench in Real Madrid’s 5-1 win against Valencia, Luka Modric is expected to start for Croatia on Saturday. Unfortunately, Dinamo Zagreb’s Bruno Petkovic is still in recovery, but there’s good news with the return of Andrej Kramaric to the squad.
Latvia, struggling at the bottom of the table after a 4-0 loss to Turkey, faces defensive challenges. Anything less than a routine away victory for Croatia would be a major upset. Latvia’s defender Marcis Oss is set to return to the starting lineup after serving a one-game ban but you can’t see it meaning a win for the Latvians.
Poland to beat Czech Republic – 2.25
All eyes will be on Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski, who is fit again, and Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski in the Polish lineup. The Czechs, missing the injured Patrik Schick but welcoming back Mojmir Chytil from suspension, is gearing up for a showdown where over 2.5 goals could be in the cards, as both teams pursue a win. In a previous encounter, the Czech Republic emerged victorious with a 3-1 scoreline at Fortuna Arena in Prague.
Poland must secure a win to bolster their chances of automatic qualification for Euro 2024, yet they face a stern challenge from the second-placed Czechia. With just a point separating the two teams, Czechia, with a game in hand, are eying up a spot in Germany next summer.
Recent form suggests a tight contest, as Czechia has lost only one of their last eight games, while Poland has won just three of their last nine competitive outings. It’s going to be tight one but Poland will run away with it.
Denmark to beat Slovenia – 1.49
A high-stakes battle for the top spot in Group H unfolds at Parken Stadium as Denmark takes on Slovenia in an important Euro 2024 qualifier. The Danes, aiming for their fifth consecutive group win, face the challenge of the in-form Slovenians. Despite the absence of Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund due to injuries, Celtic’s Matt O’Riley gets a call-up. Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen is poised to lead the line for the hosts.
While Slovenia leads the race for automatic qualification, Denmark’s home dominance at Parken Stadium makes them the favourites for this one and they are brilliant at home.
Notably, both teams share the top spot in Group H with identical records—four wins and one draw in their last five matches. The goal difference separates them, with Slovenia leading at 11, and Denmark at 10. Given Denmark’s impressive seven-game unbeaten streak at home, including victories over Slovenia at Parken Stadium, the expectation leans towards a Denmark win on Thursday.
