The World Cup qualifying picture will become clearer over the next few days as the group stages draw to an exciting finale with plenty of nations still in with a shout of making it to Qatar in 2022.

Portugal‘s trip to Dublin is crucial to their chances of securing an automatic qualification berth. They and Serbia have ran away with Group A but the Portuguese find themselve one point off the top of the table albeit with tonight's game in hand ahead of a showdown with the Serbs on Sunday.

A win against the Irish tonight will put Ronaldo and Co in pole position and in need of just a point on Sunday so there should be no thoughts of settling for anything other than a win at 1/3. Ireland have a really disappointing campaign but have found a little bit of form recently so will be keen to keep that momentum going.

Ronaldo, of course, will be the key man for the visitors and he's 8/11 (Bet365) to find the net or 13/5 to break the deadlock. The hitman scored twice when the sides met in the Algarve and he's 3/1 to bag a brace or more.

There's a similar picture in Group B where Sunday's clash between Spain and Sweden looks likely to determine who'll take top spot and their place at next year's finals. Spain trail the Scandanavians by two points so there's no room for error in Athens tonight. Greece still have an outside chance of securing second spot but it requires an unlikley win this evening and a win on Sunday coupled with a Spanish loss at the hands of Sweden.

Sweden should have an easier evening in Georgia who have lost their three home matches in the group so far. The Swede's solid defensive performances have seen concede just three in six and if they can keep the Georgians out then they should be good enough to get the goal(s) that'll see them claim three points ahead of the trip to Seville.

Germany have comfortably qualified from Group J and although there's likely to be an unfamiliar feel to their starting XI they could still rack up a big score at home to Liechtenstein. The minnows have concede four or more in six of their 10 matches this year.

Germany only won 2-0 when the nations met earlier in the group but they racked up 15 corners while enjoyng 85% possession. It should be a similar story tonight at the Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg. Bet365 price up Over 10.0 corners on the Asian Line at 7/10 but Skybet go 11/10 on 10 or more German corners which makes more appeal. If you're a bit more ambitious then 11+ corners for the home side pays 11/8 at Skybet.

    I’ve had a crap week for tipping, and if this one doesn’t come in I think I’m going to give up. It’s an early one between two teams who sit 1st n 2nd in their group. There last H2H’s, all be it between 2011 and 2017 produced 4+ Goals with both teams scoring in all 5. Australia have found the net in their last 10 games, and so have Saudi Arabia. So on that note, my NAP and NB should be like printing money. Like I said, if this doesn’t come in I’m giving it up. Which means get all your money on 0-0… 😂

      While there is a lot of skill in sports betting, there’s also a lot of luck. Personally I’d say it’s a 50/50 split. And any game which involves luck will have winning streaks and losing streaks, that is impossible to avoid. Don’t take it personally and just accept it as part of the game. Take a break if you need to and come back fresh with a clear head.

    Rep. of Ireland V Portugal

    Probably a blinkered view but I would thread carefully if backing Portugal today.
    No one is going to deny there is a gulf in class between the 2 teams but ROI are improving with each game under Kenny and are unbeaten in 4 games, which doesn’t sound a lot but from where they were it’s a big improvement.
    They will also play in front of a full stadium for the first time under Kenny and that should bring out the best in them.
    The other thing to consider is the result today doesn’t really matter to Portugal. Yes, it would be nice to be leading the group and only needing a draw going into the final game , but they have 6 first teamers on a yellow and will they be risked for tonight’s game ? Those 6 players are, Joao Cancelo, Joao Palhinha, Diogo Jota, Renato Sanches, Ruben Dias Jose Fonte and Bernardo Silva is already ruled out.
    I’m expecting some if not all of those players will not be in the starting line up so based on that have backed the following

    ROI +2 3/4 NAP

    ROI +1 11/5 half stake

    Some huge games this weekend due to the fixture list.
    All these will be battling for top spot with winner takes all shootouts in their groups.

    Italy v Switzerland on friday
    Croatia v Russia on sunday
    Portugal v Serbia on sunday
    Spain v sweden on sunday
    Holland v Norway on Tuesday (if they both win tomorrow)

    5 home wins I reckon, all 5 will expect to qualify in front of packed home stadia.

    all eggs in one low grade Brazilian basket here in a league most won’t have heard of, me included.

    Away team are 1-10 to win but that is an exaggerated price for me.

    CSP have won all 3 games, 2x 1-0 home wins and a 2-1 away win
    International had 2x 3-1 defeats and a 3-1 win.

    *** Now this is my reason for this bet, CSP despite being 1-10 to win have conceded in their last 13 away games in this competition going back to 2018 ***
