Nations League Betting – Matchday Six
It’s set to be a low-key end for England in the Nations League after Belgium extinguished their hopes of reaching a second straight finals on Sunday.
Can Gareth Southgate’s men sign off with a win with just pride to play for as they take on Iceland?
Read on for our latest Nations League betting predictions as the group stages wrap up.
NATIONS LEAGUE BETTING TIPS
Spain vs Germany looks the one to watch from the final round of games in League A, as we serve up our final set of Nations League group stage predictions…
League A Betting
It’s all to play for in A1 with just two points separating Italy, the Netherlands and Poland from a place at next year’s finals.
Italy are in the box-seat after professionally dispatching the Poles 2-0 at the weekend but could yet come unstuck against a Bosnia side that can treat this game as a ‘free hit’.
Third place Poland could still fancy their chances given they have home advantage against the Dutch.
Expect Gareth Southgate to reshuffle the pack this week with England’s final day clash against Iceland now a glorified friendly given neither side can change their fate in this competition.
The form of Jack Grealish aside, there’s precious little good news for Gareth Southgate to cling to as he shifts gear to Euro 2020 preparations.
All the interest in A2 lies far away from Wembley in midweek, with Belgium and Denmark fighting it out in Leuven to take top billing. A draw would do for the hosts.
France have top spot locked up after a clinical 1-0 win in Lisbon saw them move three points clear of the Portuguese on Saturday – with their rivals now unable to leapfrog them on H2H records.
However, Tuesday’s opponents Sweden will be keen to sign off strongly after they boosted their survival chances against fellow group strugglers Croatia.
Portugal could relegate World Cup finalists Croatia in the night’s other game.
A winner-takes-all battle looks like it will decide A4 as Spain take on Germany on Tuesday night. The Spaniards surrendered top spot to their final day opponents heading into matchday six, despite salvaging a late draw in Switzerland.
Germany know they can dig in and take the draw to reach next year’s Nations League finals. Ukraine and Switzerland will now sit this round out after their game was called off on Tuesday.
NATIONS LEAGUE ODDS: BEST OF THE REST
Relegation looks likely for Northern Ireland in Group 1, although the final standings have been thrown into chaos by last weekend’s cancellation of Romania vs Norway due to positive Covid tests. This group could yet be decided away from the final matchday.
Scotland could be forgiven for a limp 1-0 defeat to Slovakia after their Euro 2020 play-off heroics. They’ll need to shake off the hangover quickly in Israel as they their bid to preserve top spot and promotion to League A.
Wales know a win or draw on home soil against Finland will wrap up top spot in Group 4 and make it a job well done for stand-in boss Robert Page. Powderpuff Republic of Ireland will be relegated to League C should they lose to Bulgaria in Dublin.
Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
