Slovakia v Spain
Live on Sky Sports 5
Match Odds: Slovakia 10.5, Spain 1.44, The Draw 4.6
Spain opened their campaign with fresh faces – Paco Alcacer, Marc Bartra and Munir El Haddadi – and a 5-1 win over Macedonia, but much of their recent activity has been less eventful, with seven of their last ten games going under 2.5 goals, as did three of their four away World Cup qualifiers.
Slovakia’s most recent three fixtures were decided by one goal, two in their favour against Malta and Ukraine and the other to the opposition’s benefit against Russia. That was the sole goal that they have conceded in four outings since early March though, so a high score appears unlikely.
Match Odds: Slovenia 3.6, Switzerland 2.38, The Draw 3.3
For all the talk of how much easier is to qualify now that the European Championship is a 24-team tournament, these should-be top-three finishers will be slightly wary after losing starts. Switzerland were beaten 0-2 at home by confidence-light England, while Slovenia fell to Estonia, who reached the Euro 2012 play-offs and therefore can’t be discounted.
As the odds indicate, there is more to like about Switzerland’s prospects despite a poor start under Vladimir Petkovic, as they have won four of their previous seven, whereas Slovenia have lost all four of their 2014 encounters without scoring. Even more compellingly, both teams have scored in none of Slovenia’s last ten, flagging that up as the standout punting option.
Match Odds: Sweden 2.68, Russia 3.1, The Draw 3.25
Following a 4-0 dismissal of Liechtenstein in his Group G opener, Fabio Capello’s record in qualifiers as first England and now Russia boss reads 22 victories, four draws and just three defeats in 29 matches, hinting that 3.1 is a chunky price on the away win at the Friends Arena.
While Russia weren’t as successful at the World Cup as they had hoped, they were only actually conquered once – 0-1 by Belgium – and that remains their sole reverse in 15 games, during which they have won nine. Sweden by contrast have triumphed once in their last five fixtures and are without Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Don’t forget that…Get 3/1 England to beat San Marino…..HERE…..when the odds are 1/150!!!
