World Cup Qualifiers – Round 4 – Big Predictions
England Vs Scotland
It’s the battle of Britain as England take on noisy neighbors Scotland as they look to secure the spot at the top of Group F. Despite the circumstances in which coach Sam Allardyce was forced to resign at the beginning of the qualifying campaign the Three Lions have fared well and site at the top of the standings on 7 points while Scotland are 4th in the table behind Lithuania and Slovenia. This will be a hotly fought contest however I predict a home win.
Prediction 2-0 – A Home Win is at odds of 1.36 on Bet365!
France Vs Sweden
Probably Friday evenings most high anticipated fixture is between these two sides, jointly leading their group on 7 points. France’s last qualifying game a few weeks ago ended in an extremely positive away win over the Netherlands after Pogba’s strike was fumbled in by Dutch goalkeeper Stekelenburg. Sweden were superb as they demolished a poor Bulgaria team at the Friends Arena in Solna. I expect an exciting game but France’s class should be enough for them to win this.
Prediction 2-0 – A home Win is at odds of 1.28 on Bet365!
Liechtenstein Vs Italy
European minnows Liechtenstein have yet to collect a point as they struggle to challenge even fellow minnows like Albania. Italy will be pleased with the character shown when they faced Spain several weeks ago as Ventura’s side came from a goal down to hold the visitors to a 1-1 draw, followed by a superb comeback in Macedonia thanks to a late Immobile double. Comfortable away win expected on Saturday evening.
Prediction 0-3 – An away win is at odds of 1.07 on Bet365!
Wales Vs Serbia
Wales entertain Serbia at the Cardiff City Stadium in what is expected to be a hotly contested encounter in front of a packed house. Wales have some catching up to do after being held away to Austria and also home to Georgia as the Red Dragons look to star man Gareth Bale to get their qualifying campaign back on track. Serbia lead the group with 7 points after some solid displays however the visitors will take no chances in Cardiff. I am backing the home side to win this!
Prediction 2-1 – A Home Win is at odds of 2.20 on Bet365!
Spain Vs Macedonia
Football giants Spain take on tiny Macedonia in what I predict will be a one sided display from start to finish. The Spaniards sit joint top of their group while the visitors were moments away from a historic victory over Italy before conceding two late goals to end the night empty handed. Spain to pummel the visitors.
Prediction 4-0 – Spain to win -3 is at odds of 2.25 on Bet365!
