The Favorites Play on the Road this Sunday in Euro 2020 QualifiersPublished November 17, 2019 by Florin P
The best teams at the Euro 2020 Qualifiers play Sunday matches with little pressure and limited scope against mediocre opponents.
The football weekend ends on a positive note, with Euro 2020 Qualifiers that could potentially decide the final configuration of most of the groups. For the teams in the first place, Sunday brings exciting games on the road against teams that are still hoping for a place at the main event. They will encounter serious opposition and some would even consider splitting points, as the top priority is to avoid injuries.
England Faces Raucous Crowd in Kosovo Match
England’s flawless record was spoiled last round and now the Group A leaders are simply concerned about finishing on the first spot. A single point against Kosovo on the road will be enough, but the visitors will have to fight hard for such a draw. The hosts still have theoretical chances to qualify and will, in any case try to make the most of the opportunity presented by such a match. Bookmakers are cautious when pricing England at 7/10, which is tempting value under these circumstances. Punters can expect even better odds of 3/1 at bet365 Sports on the match to end undecided, marking the first draw for England.
France Braces for an Intense Road Match against Albania
France and Turkey are tied for the lead in Group H, but the world champions are behind on goal average. To return to the first place, they need to defeat Albania on the road and this is not going to be an easy task. The hosts are out of the qualification picture but will use the opportunity of a match against France to show their best. The visitors are only priced at 3/10 by Intertops Sportsbook, while the hosts benefit from significantly bigger odds of 9/10.
Easy Travels for Turkey and Portugal this Weekend
Portugal in Turkey are expected to pick up easy points, potentially by defeating opponents by several goals on Sunday evening. They play against Luxembourg, respectively Andorra and can’t afford any mistakes against these weak opponents. Turkey needs a victory to maintain its advantage over France, while Portugal is just one point ahead of Serbia in Group B
Serbia Clings on Second Place in Game against Ukraine
The most exciting match of the day is the one played between Serbia and Ukraine, with the hosts having only theoretical chances to qualify. They need to defeat the leaders in a match where they are priced at 1/1, while the visitors enjoy odds of 2/1 from 888 Sport. Throughout the entire qualification campaign, Ukraine has allowed just two goals and will play defensive football in a match that only matters for the record. Punters can expect a high number of yellow cards, as the Serbians have nothing to lose.
