World Cup qualifying tips: Dutch and Norway in battle for Qatar

World Cup qualifying tips and odds

The group stage of World Cup qualification comes to an end on Tuesday night when all eyes will be on Group G where Netherlands, Turkey and Norway all remain in the running in the race to Qatar.

The biggest game of the night sees the Dutch start as 2/5 favourites to beat Norway in Rotterdam but the result is by no means a foregone conclusion.

We are also covering the clash between Montenegro and Turkey in our World Cup qualifying tips, plus two of the games in Group D where a play-off spot is up for grabs.

Netherlands v Norway

Louis van Gaal’s side threw away a two-goal lead in Montenegro, who struck twice in the final 10 minutes to secure a 2-2 draw which left the Dutch two points clear of Norway and Turkey heading into Tuesday’s final game.

Norway would have gone level on points with Netherlands but could only draw at home to Latvia and they can be backed at 18/5 to pick up a point as they did against the Dutch in Oslo.

Netherlands have won all four home games by at least two goals and are 21/20 to win by a couple or more while Memphis Depay is 14/5 to break the deadlock as he did on Saturday.

Montenegro v Turkey

Turkey need Norway to do them a favour if they are to book their flight to Qatar but a win on Tuesday is likely to be enough to secure a play-off spot.

Two months ago, the Turks drew 2-2 with Montenegro who scored in the seventh minute of stoppage time to earn a point so we go 4/6 on the visitors to win or 27/10 on them winning and conceding in Podgorica.

Another 2-2 draw can be backed at 16/1 and a share of the spoils and goals at both ends is 19/5 in our World Cup qualifying tips.

Bosnia-Herzegovina v Ukraine

Bosnia-Herzegovina’s shock 3-1 home defeat by Finland ended their hopes of securing a play-off spot but their conquerors are fighting it out with unbeaten Ukraine for second spot.

Remarkably, third-placed Ukraine, two points behind Finland, have drawn six of their seven games and are 5/2 to pick up a point which would not be enough to compete in the play-offs in March.

Ukraine have scored and conceded in all seven matches and an eighth is 17/20 while both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win is 7/4.

Finland v France

The last of our World Cup qualifying tips takes place in Helsinki where even a draw against the world champions may not be enough for the Finns to reach the second round.

Finland played 53 minutes of their win in Zenica with just 10 men following the first-half dismissal of Jukka Raitala.

But they will have to bring their ‘A’ game against France, who qualified for Qatar with an 8-0 victory against Kazakhstan having beaten Tuesday’s opponents 2-0 when they met in Paris.

Coach Didier Deschamps may rest some of his big guns like Kylian Mbappe, who scored half the goals on Saturday, so a draw does not look beyond them at 13/5 while an away win and under 3.5 match goals is 5/4.
