NOT much of a card today but I do feel there is value to be had in UEFA Nations League matches. There are two matches I like the look of.
Faroe Islands v Kosovo (5pm)
One of the big success stories in international football this year has to be the rise of Kosovo – they only became a FIFA member two years ago and their inclusion in the Nations League has seen them prosper as they have two wins and a draw from their three matches. Looking back further, over the last 12 months they have won six of their last seven games.
When you look at where these players play their club football it gives you an idea just how they are (Lazio, Werder Bremen, Genk, Brondby) – a far cry from the level most of their opponents ply their trade.
They've already beaten this Faroes side 2-0 at home and I feel they have more than enough quality to do the double. Confidence must be sky high at the moment as they look to hit 10 points and win their seventh match from eight.

Lithuania v Montenegro (7.45pm)
The good people of Lithuania must think I have something against them as I’m tipping them to get beat yet again, They've been poor in this Nations League and powderpuff in attack.
They finally managed a goal in the 90th minute against Romania on Thursday only to lose a goal in the final minute to go down 2-1. Their 14th defeat in their last 17 games.
The visitors went down to two Mitrovic goals against Serbia but this will be much easier and I expect them to inflict yet another defeat on this poor Lithuania side.
