World Cup Qualifying Tips: Five Previews and Score Predictions for Tonight’s Matches
The first round of fixtures for this month’s international break is over, and on Tuesday, we have the final round of fixtures. If the results last Thursday and Friday are something to go by, we are in for other exciting games.
Some games will decide whether certain nations are out of the race for a place in next year’s World Cup in Qatar, while others have the potential of securing a spot for some nations for the tournament next year. Let’s take a closer look at what awaits us in the next couple of days.

Albania vs Poland
This is a game that both teams do not have the luxury to lose, so they will be extra cautious going into this one. Just one point separates these two in the fight for the second spot in the group, so it’s all to play for in Group I.
Both teams will be full of confidence going into this game, but Poland will be under more pressure, as they are the favourites just behind England. It will be a nervy encounter, but Poland, led by the impressive Robert Lewandowski will show they mean business.
Score Prediction: Albania 1-2 Poland (17/2 with bet365)
Denmark vs Austria
Where to even start with Denmark? They are playing like they are the best team to ever set foot on a football pitch in the last few months, and during these qualifications, they won all games without conceding a single goal on the way. Quite impressive.
They have already booked their place in Qatar, but Austria have all to play for. They sit four points behind second-placed Scotland, so anything else than a win in Copenhagen will be a bad result for them. They will open up in search of all three points, and Denmark will punish that. Expect a lot of goals in this one, but Denmark will have too much for the Austrians.
Score Prediction: Denmark 3-2 Austria (28/1 with bet365)
England vs Hungary
England would be just an inch away from qualification for next year’s tournament if they win on Tuesday, and they will be expected to do so. They have a very impressive young team that looks hungry for success, and they will surely be among the favourites to win the World Cup next year.
Hungary are a decent team, and they have to win against England if they are to have any chance of qualifying for the World Cup, but it might be too much of an ask for them. England simply will have too much quality for the away side.
Score Prediction: England 3-0 Hungary (5/1 with bet365)
Sweden vs Greece
A win for the home side would practically seal their spot at least for the play-off, depending on the goal difference. Sweden sit in second place in the group with three points more than Greece, so there will be some nerves going into this game.
Greece have nothing to lose at this point, they need to go at their opposition with all they have, as a win here will further complicate proceedings in the group. Sweden will use the home advantage and get the three points.
Score Prediction: Sweden 2-1 Greece (8/1 with bet365)
Ukraine vs Bosnia & Herzegovina
France are running away with first place in the group, so Ukraine, Bosnia, and Finland remain to fight for the spot that guarantees play-offs. Ukraine and Bosnia lock horns on Tuesday in a game that may see one of these two with one step in the play-offs.
Bosnia sit just two points behind Ukraine, but they have a game in hand, so they might be slight favourites to secure second place in the group. A win in Kyiv will boost their chances for the World Cup, but the home side will be inspired by their crowd, so they will just edge this one and set one foot in the play-offs.
Score Prediction: Ukraine 1-0 Bosnia & Herzegovina (11/2 with bet365)
