There’s some crucial Euro 2024 Qualifiers coming up this week for the home nationals, none more so than Scotland’s Group A clash with Spain where a point would all but secure a place in Germany next summer.
Steve Clarke’s men are 11/4 to escape Seville without defeat but it’ll be a tall order against a Spanish side who look like they’ve put defeat at Hampden behind them.
On Friday Republic of Ireland are on their last sip of their last drink after last orders has been called in the last chance saloon. They welcome Greece who are six points ahead of them in Group B but they also need to hope that Netherlands drop points to France and all manner of results go their way from here. Although not yet mathematically eliminated Bet365 aren’t even offering odds on them qualifying.
Likewise, Northern Ireland can still qualify but they’re miles off the pace in Group H and will be looking to put a measure of respectability on their campaign with a good win over San Marino before group leaders Slovenia come to Belfast on Tuesday.
England warm-up for a blockbuster clash with Italy on Tuesday by playing the Socceroos on Friday night. The Three Lions hold a commanding lead over the Azzurri and a point would be just about enough ensure they’ll finish above the Italians thanks to a superior goal difference.
Wales’ fate is still in their own hands. They’ve two massive home matches still to come against Group D leaders Turkey (November 21) and Croatia (Sunday). Win both of those and they’ll be right in the mix for qualification.
The Welsh have a friendly with Gibraltar tonight and that could provide the perfect morale-booster before Luca Modric and co. roll in to town.
As you’d expect they’re a very short price at 1/25.
Gib have failed to score in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, conceding 17 in five games so far and have lost three or more in each match. Wales to go one better and hit four is even money which might be the best option if you’re having a bet in this one.
