San Marino vs EnglandWorld Cup, KO: 19:45 Nov 15, 2021, San Marino Stadium
ENGLAND will seek to round off a near flawless World Cup 2022 Qualifying campaign when they travel to San Marino on Monday night.
Gareth Southgate's side all-but secured top spot in Group I on Friday night with a 5-0 annihilation of third-placed Albania.
That resounding Wembley win means the Three Lions need just one point to book their plane tickets to next winter's showpiece in Qatar.
The Euro 2020 finalists should see out their qualifying campaign against minnows San Marino with a minimum of fuss.
Unsurprisingly, Franco Varrella's side are propping up the section with zero points, having scored a mere one goal across their nine group games to date.
The Group I whipping boys suffered a 4-0 hammering in Hungary last time out and another heavy defeat could lie in wait on the final matchday on Monday night.
San Marino have lost each of their last 52 World Cup qualifiers and the bookies odds suggest that sorry sequence will continue with a home win trading at 190/1 (SportNation) while a point apiece pays 39/1 with SBK.
England cruised to victory in each of the previous seven meetings between the pair and another Three Lions success is heavily fancied at 1/100 with Bet 365.
This game could not be any more of a mismatch and it's therefore a case of having to get very creative to find a backable price on an England win.
I'll therefore head to the Bet Builder market and combine England half/time full time, England win to nil, over two England goals and under one England card at even-money 1/1 with Bet 365.
This is the type of assignment that England have become particularly efficient in handling, with the Three Lions tasting defeat just once across their last 56 preliminaries for either a Euros or World Cup.
What's more, England have racked up an impressive 44 victories across that sample of qualifiers, one of which includes a 5-0 success in the reverse fixture back in March.
Sectional basement boys San Marino, on the other hand, have since shipped three or more goals in seven of their subsequent eight Group I assignments and Southgate's star-studded could fill their boots again here.
As such, I'm happy to side with over two England strikes, but to boost up the price, I'll also back visitors to keep a clean sheet and to be leading at half time before marching to victory in Serravalle.
With the world's 5th ranked nation expected to dominate the tempo of the game, I'll round off the combination with under one England card.
The aforementioned Bet Builder clicked at Wembley on Friday night and the same even-money(Bet 365) formula looks like a nice way of trying to squeeze some value out of what should be a routine stroll to success in San Marino on Monday night.
