Euro 2020 Qualifiers - Home Nations take on Europe’s Elite
Home Nations take on Europe’s Elite

The European Championship qualifiers resume on Monday with two of the home nations set to take on a couple of world football’s heavyweights. Here at freebet.com we provide team news, betting advice and match odds as Scotland and Northern Ireland get set to take on Belgium and Germany respectively. 

 

Scotland vs Belgium 

 

Scotland’s Nations League exploits mean they are already guaranteed at least a play-off place however a top two finish in Group I will seal automatic qualification for next summer’s tournament. Scotland have not qualified for a major international competition since the 1998 FIFA World Cup and currently sit fourth in their qualifying group. With second-placed Russia holding a six-point advantage over Scotland, Monday’s visit of group leaders, Belgium, will go a long way to deciding their fate. 

 

Scotland’s recent record against Belgium has been poor, losing five in a row without scoring a single goal. You can back Belgium to win to nil at 13/10 with BetVictor. Belgium won the reverse fixture 3-0 back in June and can be backed at 17/2 with the same bookmaker to repeat that 3-0 scoreline at Hampden Park. 

 

Former Manchester United forward, Romelu Lukaku, has found the net three times in two games against Scotland, including a brace when they met in June. The Inter Milan man will inevitably attract plenty of support in the goal scorer markets. Get on Betfair’s offer of Evens for Lukaku to score at any time. Alternatively, he is 7/2 to score first or 5/1 to score two or more with SpreadEx.

Belgium – 7/20 

 

Northern Ireland vs Germany 

 

Northern Ireland currently sit on top of Group C with a 100% record after four matches however, they are yet to play either Germany or the Netherlands. On Monday night they’ll host 2014 World Cup winners, Germany, at a sell-out Windsor Park. 

 

The message from manager, Michael O’Neill, is “do not lose”, therefore we’re expecting a cagey affair in Belfast. You should consider MarathonBet’s offer of 6/5 on under 2.5 match goals. 

 

Germany arrive in Belfast having surrendered a half-time lead to lose 4-2 at home to the Netherlands. That loss has blown the group wide open and Michael O’Neill believes it will make Monday’s showdown an even tougher proposition. O’Neill explained, “"There will be a massive reaction. Those Germany players will be hurting from that result.” 

 

24-year old Bayern Munich winger, Serge Gnabry opened the scoring against the Netherlands and is available at 11/2 with SpreadEx to get the opening goal against Northern Ireland. The former Arsenal player has been one of Germany’s stand-out players during qualification, finding the net in three of his country’s four matches so far. Unibet are offering 6/4 for Gnabry to score at any time. 

 

Match Odds (courtesy of William Hill) 

Northern Ireland – 9/1 

Draw – 17/4 

Germany – 3/10
