The UEFA Nations League groups will be all wrapped up after these set of fixtures. England confirmed their place in Portugal next summer after their comeback against Croatia, and now we will wait and see who else will join them in the remaining fixtures of this tournament.
The standout game this game week is Germany vs Netherlands, and with the Germans already relegated to League B, it will be interesting to see if Gini Wijnaldum and his team can claim top spot off France.
Georgia have been impressive in these group stages and have already confirmed top spot. They have netted 10 goals and conceded one in five matches, helping them going unbeaten ahead of this Kazakhstan encounter. Georgia won the reverse fixture 2-0 and we fully expect them to earn all three points in this one if they are up for it.
As mentioned, Georgia have only conceded one goal in these group stages, and with them keeping a clean sheet in Kazakhstan and keeping five straight clean sheets on home soil, we are backing them to win to nil. Our first tip for the UEFA Nations League fixtures taking place today and tomorrow is going to be Georgia to Win to Nil and its best valued at 17/10 with Boylesports.
Martin O’Neill and his Republic of Ireland side haven’t won away from home in their last five matches, three of which ended in defeat. Meanwhile, Denmark are unbeaten in their last 12 on home turf. Denmark edged past Wales on Friday in a difficult match for the Danes, and we expect that win to fill them with confidence and momentum coming into this one.
Denmark have already sealed their promotion to League A, but they’ll want to maintain their unbeaten record in this group and keep their unbeaten streak at home going. Our second-best bet for this week’s fixtures is going to come in this match, and we fancy HT Result: Denmark at odds of 6/5 with BetVictor.
Netherlands have been very impressive recently and that has come as a surprise to everyone after they failed to qualify for the World Cup. Ronald Koeman has seemingly filled this side with confidence coming into this Group decider, and just one point from this clash would be enough for the Netherlands to top this group thanks to their superior head-to-head goal difference with France.
The reverse fixture ended in a 3-0 victory for Memphis Depay and co, and although we don’t think it’ll be that convincing in Germany, we do think Koeman and his side can get something out of this one. Our third best bet is going to be Netherlands Double Chance at best odds of 10/11 with Coral.
The Swedes will be without their star man Emil Forsberg in this fixture, but that didn’t have any implications on Saturday as they edged past Turkey in a 1-0 win. Russia sit top of this group by three points, and they shared a goalless draw with Sweden in the reverse fixture back in October.
We don’t expect there to be too many goals in this one, but we think Sweden will narrowly edge past Russia after their gritty victory in Turkey. In what is a penultimate game for both sides, our best bet for this encounter is going to be Sweden to Win and its best valued at 10/11 with WilliamHill.
A massive game at Hampden Park on Tuesday sees Scotland host Israel. Both sides are locked on six points, and if the Scots win, they will earn promotion to the second tier. Israel won the reverse fixture so have a head-to-head advantage over Scotland. Alex McLeish’s side earned a massive three points in Albania after their comfortable 4-0 victory, so we expect they will be full of confidence coming into this encounter.
The last time Scotland faced Israel on home soil was in 1981 when they ran out 3-1 winners. We think on Tuesday, especially at home, that they are good value and we expect the Scots to earn all three points and gain promotion from this group. Our final best bet for this set of UEFA Nations League fixtures is Scotland to win and its best priced at 4/5 with Betfred.
