International Football – Betting Preview
It’s the final international break of 2019 with plenty of issues still to be settled in the Nations League, and Wayne Rooney waving goodbye to his England career for one final time.
Here’s our betting preview ahead of the key fixtures coming up over the next few days…
Wales vs Denmark, Friday 16th November, 19:45
The build-up to this meeting between the two sides has been somewhat calmer than back in September where a player strike by the Danes threatened to overshadow the game. That matter got resolved in time for Denmark to record a routine 2-0 victory on home soil, but Wales will be aware a disciplined performance here could see them move further clear at the top of the group.
It’s likely to be a war of attrition in Cardiff as the Danes have yet to concede in the competition – can Ryan Giggs’ side edge their way to a hard-fought victory?

Netherlands vs France, Friday 16th November, 19:45
Could the long-awaited Dutch recovery be on? Ronald Koeman’s side has certainly made a better fist of a tough-looking Nations League group than anticipated, narrowly losing to France in their opener before humbling Germany 3-0 in their last competitive outing.
Added to a spirited 1-1 draw with Belgium in their last friendly, there’s room for optimism in the Dutch camp as they play their reverse fixture against the world champions. However, with France only needing a draw to confirm their position as group winners, that result may just suit both sides as Koeman slowly rebuilds confidence within the Oranje ranks ahead of a defining Euro 2020 qualifying process.

Albania vs Scotland, Saturday 17th November, 19:45
Finally, Alex McCleish’s Scotland side face a difficult test against an organised Albania side with one home Nations League victory already under their belt after beating Israel 1-0 back in September.
The Scots will be without Ryan Jack after the Rangers man picked up an injury last weekend, and McCleish faces a selection dilemma after a spate of injury withdrawals. Could the Albanians take advantage of a Scotland squad missing some of its biggest names?
