Our Goals Acca Tips are based on statistical analysis of recent performances.
Italy to Score 2+
After failing to qualify in 2018, Italy will to take a step closer to qualifying for this years World Cup, as they host North Macedonia at the Stadio Renzo Barbera.
Despite leading Group C for the majority of the campaign, one win in their final five group matches saw The Azzurri finish second, as they were overtaken by Switzerland.
As expected, Germany ran away with Group J, but three wins in their final four games saw Blagoja Milevski’s side finish in second-place, a point above Romania.
Remarkably, Italy have never lost a World Cup qualifier at home and I can’t see them losing here. Roberto Mancini’s side scored nine times in their four home group-stage games and look a good bet to score a brace against their underdog opponents.
Portugal vs Turkey – Both Teams to Score
Portugal will look to take one step closer on qualifying for their sixth-successive World Cup, as they take on Turkey at the Estádio do Dragão.
After taking 16 points from their opening six group-stage qualifiers, Portugal looked set to finish top of Group A, but a draw in Dublin over Ireland and a stoppage-time 1-2 defeat at home to Serbia, saw the Serbs take top-spot.
After being thumped 6-1 in Amsterdam by eventual group winners Holland, Turkey took 10 points from their final four matches to finish in second, three points above Norway.
Portugal found the back of the net 17 times in their eight group-stage matches and given the Cresent-Stars found the back of the net in all 10 of their qualifiers, I’m happy to take a punt on both sides getting on the scoresheet in Porto.
Brazil to Score 2+
Brazil will look to keep up their unbeaten record in qualifying, as they host Chile at their iconic Maracanã Stadium.
Tite’s side have already qualified for this years World Cup thanks to winning 12 and drawing three of their 15 matches and currently hold a four-point lead over bitter-rivals Argentina.
After winning just one of their opening 10 qualifiers, La Roja come into this winning four of their last to leave them in sixth-position, just three points behind Uruguay in fourth.
Brazil have won all seven qualifiers on home turf, scoring 19 goals and despite having already qualified, look a good bet to score at least twice against a Chile side that’s won just twice in qualifying away from home.
Panama to Score 2+
Panama will look to maintain their position inside the inter-confederations playoff, as they host already-eliminated Honduras at the Estadio Rommel Fernández Stadium.
Panama come into this winning three of their last five in qualifying, leaving them just one point above fifth-placed Costa Rica, whilst Honduras are still yet to win in the Octagon, losing eight and drawing three of their matches.
Thomas Christiansen’s hosts have taken 11 of their 17 points on home turf, with Los Canaleros winning each of their last three at home, scoring six goals.
Honduras have lost each of their last seven, conceding on two or more occasions in each of those defeats and there’s every chance they’ll concede another brace here.
