Euro 2020 Qualifiers Group Winners to be revealed on SaturdayPublished November 16, 2019 by Florin P
The first places are up for grabs in three key groups at the Euro 2020 Qualifiers, with the winners likely to be decided on Saturday.
One last hurdle separates the teams playing in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers for a spot in the main event. Most of the favorites have already secured passage to the main event and have crowned themselves as group winners. The two remaining matches will decide the final configuration of this stage of the competition, as well as the teams that will wrap up the qualification campaign without defeat.
The First Place in Balance between Austria and Poland
Poland has secured qualification to the main event but is still very much in the race to win the group. The team is well-positioned to achieve that, as it plays against Israel on Saturday evening, before welcoming Slovenia next week. Even though this is not a must-win game for the Poles, they would like to play the final round pressure-free. The odds on their victory in Tel Aviv currently stand at 3/2 with bet365 Sports.
Elsewhere, Austria has a more difficult mission at home against North Macedonia, even though the odds suggest the opposite. The visitors still hold theoretical chances to qualify, so 3/10 is not value worth pursuing on the hosts. They do have the better team, but the visitors will fight hard to keep their slim chance alive, so a better option would be the over 2.5 goals to be scored.
Germany and the Netherlands to Cement Their Group C Lead
Germany is trailing the Netherlands in Group C after conceding one more goal in the direct matches. There are better positioned at finishing at the top of the group because they play at home against Belarus, whereas the leaders travel to Northern Ireland. Both are favorites to prevail, but Germany’s priced at 1/20, while the Dutch get odds of 1/2 at 888 Sport. The Irish are going to throw everything they’ve got on Saturday evening at 7:45 PM UK time, as a victory would keep them in the race. If they prevail, the decisive match will be played next week against Germany on the road.
Russia and Belgium Fight for Group I Supremacy
Belgium is one of the two undefeated teams at the Euro 2020 Qualifiers, but it can still lose the first place. It all comes down to the result against Russia, a team they have defeated in the first leg, a year ago. This time, the Belgians are playing on the road but there are still credited with the first chance and odds of 11/10 by Winner Sports. They don’t have players missing or injured ahead of this fixture, but they would gladly settle for a draw against an opponent that plays physical football. Punters should consider the odds of 5/2 on a draw that would spoil Belgium’s flawless record but keep the nation at the top of Group I.
