We’ve teamed up once again with Matash, and in his second piece for Bet Central, he focuses on international football and has created a multiple at over 40 odds, crazy value here.
Turkey v Norway (Friday)
Turkey is bidding to qualify for the finals of a World Cup for the first time since 2002 when they finished third.
A record of three wins, two draws, and one defeat from six matches has seen them collect 11 points, leaving them third in the section, two points behind both second-placed Norway and leaders in the Netherlands. Norway, meanwhile, is bidding to qualify for the finals of a World Cup for the first time since 1998, when they reached the round of 16 of the competition.
Russia v Slovakia (Friday)
Russia will continue their push for automatic World Cup qualification when they host Slovakia on Friday.
Valeri Karpin’s team is second in Group H in European qualifying after four wins from six games, while their opponents are in third. Russia kept a clean sheet in all three games against Croatia, Cyprus, and Malta while they are the top scorers in Group H with 10 goals.
Ireland v Armenia (Friday)
Iceland has had a poor campaign and sits fifth in the group, whilst some disappointing recent results have seen Armenia fall back towards the chasing pack for second. Iceland competed at a World Cup for the first time in their history in 2018, but they now look very unlikely to repeat that feat four years later if they lose to Armenia on Friday, it will become statistically impossible to do so as they will be 10 points behind with just three games remaining.
Estonia v Belarus (Friday)
Estonia picked up an impressive point away at Wales last month, but they still trail Belarus by two points in the battle to avoid the fifth place. Belarus has three points on the board, meanwhile, thanks to their 4-2 win in the reverse meeting with Estonia seven months ago.
Since then, Belarus has lost four successive qualifying matches, conceding 13 goals and scoring just twice – eight of those goals against coming in one game against Belgium.
Angola v Gabon (Friday)
Angola’s World Cup 2022 dream could be all but over if they do not pick up their first win in the CAF qualification Group F against Gabon on Friday, with the visitors also in need of a vital three points.
Gabon has secured one point from their opening two group games in this World Cup qualification campaign, placing them five points behind leaders Libya with four games to play.
Lithuania v Bulgaria (Saturday)
Facing a must-win match if they are to remain as unlikely contenders for a playoff place, Bulgaria visit pointless Lithuania in World Cup Qualifying Group C on Saturday afternoon.
When the teams meet in Vilnius, the visitors will look to draw level on points with second-placed Switzerland by taking all three points, while their hapless hosts are rock-bottom and still to get off the mark.
Finland v Ukraine (Saturday)
Finland plays host to Ukraine on Saturday evening knowing that victory will see them take a significant step towards claiming the second position in Group B.
However, Ukraine finds themselves in a similar spot, the visitors also being able to move clear of their World Cup qualification rivals with a win in Helsinki.
Georgia v Greece (Saturday)
Greece will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in Group B when they continue their World Cup 2022 qualification campaign away to Georgia on Saturday.
The visitors are currently third in the section with six points to show from four matches, while Georgia is bottom, having collected just one point from their opening five fixtures.
Azerbaijan v Rep. Ireland (Saturday)
After claiming just one point from their first five Group A matches, Azerbaijan became the second European nation after San Marino who has failed to qualify for next year’s World Cup. The Republic of Ireland has not qualified for the World Cup since 2002 and their hopes of ending their nearly 20-year run are hanging by a thread, as they currently sit nine points behind Serbia in second place, with just three Group A matches left to play.
Scotland v Israel (Saturday)
After a slow start to their qualification campaign, Scotland has started to pick up speed recently and come into this match on the back of two consecutive wins in September. Israel will, of course, be just as aware of the importance of the match.
What had been looking like a stellar international break last time out was somewhat spoiled by a heavy 5-0 defeat to Denmark in the final game, but the previous two games have still left Willibald Ruttensteiner’s side in a strong position.
