Northern Ireland v Netherlands – Over 2.5 Goals – 1.80

This is a must-win game for Northern Ireland against a rejuvenated Netherlands. Michael O’Neill’s side will be out of contention in the group if they draw with the Netherlands and Germany beat Belarus, or if they lose and Germany draw. Four of the last six games between these two have seen three or more goals. The last time these two faced each other the Dutch scored three late goals to win 3-1. Three of Ireland’s last five games and Oranje’s last six games in the Euro 2020 qualifiers have seen three or more goals.

Croatia v Slovakia – Both Teams to Score – 2.10

Both teams have found the back of the net in six of Croatia’s last eight matches in all competition. Both teams have also scored in five of Slovakia’s last six games. Both teams hit the back of the net in three of their last five meetings. Zlatko Dalić’s side have also kept one clean sheet at home in their last six matches while Slovakia have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven away games.

Russia v Belgium – Over 2.5 Goals – 1.70

Both Russia and Belgium have sealed their place in next year’s tournament so this game will be for managers to experiment. Three of their last five meetings between these two have seen Over 2.5 Goals. Russia’s last two matches and five of the Red Devil’s last six games have seen three or more goals scored.

Serbia v Ukraine – Over 2.5 Goals – 1.80

Ukraine, winners of Group B in Euro qualifiers, hammered Serbia 5-0 the last time they met. Serbia’s last five matches in qualifiers and four of Ukraine’s last six games have seen Over 2.5 Goals. With Serbia still looking for an automatic qualification spot, they should be going for the win, while the Ukrainians will want to finish the qualifiers unbeaten.

Bulgaria v Czech Republic – Czech Republic Win – 1.75

Bulgaria have not won any of their last eight games and have lost five in that terrible run. The Czechs have won four of their last six games and are just three points away from sealing their place in next year’s tournament which will be their seventh in a row.
