Sunday’s Euro 2020 qualifiers Betting Tips: Scotland to get back on track?

| 22.03.2019

Three of the home nations are in action hoping to make steps towards Euro 2020 qualification.

Northern Ireland won their first match in Group C, and will be in a strong position if they pick up another three points at home to Belarus.

Wales start their campaign at home to Slovakia, with Scotland looking to make amends in San Marino.

We have a look at the most important games in Sunday’s fixtures…

Northern Ireland v Belarus

With three points on the board already, Michael O’Neill’s men will be looking to take their total to six after two games. They’re 7/10 to get the job done.

Before their drubbing at the hands of the Netherlands, Belarus had been in decent form winning four of their last six. They sit at 24/5 to get three points on the board.

Niall McGinn opened the scoring in their 2-0 win over Estonia last time out. He’s 13/2 to do so again, or 3/1 to score anytime. Another Northern Ireland Win to Nil is 27/20.

Netherlands v Germany

Ronald Koeman has turned the fortunes of the Dutch National team around already, and they’ll fancy their chances against a Germany side that haven’t played too many matches together.

The Oranje are slight favourites to bag the win at 29/20, and this result could go a long way to determining who wins the group.

Germany have so much fresh attacking talent, and their defensive unit isn’t bad either. It’s just a question of whether they can gel. They’re 7/4 for the three points.

Last time these two played, it ended in a 2-2 draw. If you’re backing another high-scoring draw, it’s 16/5 on a Draw with over 1.5 goals.

Virgil van Dijk has hit peak form recently, and he can’t stop finding the net too. He’s 7/1 to find his way to goal again.

Wales v Slovakia

Ryan Giggs’ side limped to a last minute 1-0 over Trinidad & Tobago on Wednesday, but they were without a number of key men who are expected to be back for this one. They’ll want to start with three points, and they’re 11/10 to do so.

Slovakia could provide a stern test for the Welsh side, and will be no pushovers. They turned over Hungary 2-0 last time out starting off their campaign with three points. They’re 11/4 to make it six.

Gareth Bale is one of those key men that’s expected to slot straight back into the side. Their talisman is 16/5 to open the scoring, or 7/5 anytime.

Aaron Ramsey is another who is expected back, and he’s in good form. He’s 10/3 for a goal in the 90.

San Marino v Scotland

Scotland looked shocking in their surprise 3-0 defeat to Kazakhstan last time out, but San Marino are the worst-ranked side in international football and it offers Scotland a chance to avenge their poor mid-week performance.

San Marino are a massive 55/1 outside shot for the win, having only won once in their history. Scotland are heavy odds-on favourites to win away from home at 1/33.

Oliver McBurnie has been in scintillating form for his club side Swansea, and this could be a chance for him to get the goals flowing again. He’s 23/10 to score first,  2/5 anytime and 15/8 to score twice or more.

Scotland to Win to Nil is 3/10.

Cyprus v Belgium

Despite a Thibaut Courtois howler, Belgium came through their friendly against Russia with a 3-1 win. Roberto Martinez’s side are among the favourites to win the tournament, so it’s no surprise they’re 2/13 on to beat Cyprus.

Cyprus gave San Marino a pasting last time out, coming away with a 5-0 win. But the Cypriots won’t be able to have the same approach against Belgium. They’re 22/1 to win here.

Eden Hazard bagged a brace against Russia, and the Belgian captain will be looking to add to his tally here. He’s 3/1 to score first, 19/20 anytime and 9/2 to bag at least another brace.

Youri Tielemans grabbed his first international goal in that game too. He’s 10/3 to get his second in this one.

The Belgian attack is a force to be reckoned with. A 5-0 win for the Red Devils is 16/1, with a 1-0 Cypriot victory out at 45/1.
