The Euro 2020 qualifiers continue tonight. France are looking to bounce back, Northern Ireland want to continue their impressive run and newly appointed Scotland manager Steve Clarke faces a difficult first away match against Belgium. Here are Things to Look out for in Euro 2020 Qualifying Tonight. Bet on football here.
Northern Ireland to extend their winning run?
Northern Ireland continued with their great start to the Euro 2020 qualifiers with another win against Estonia at the weekend. Their impressive run has seen them sit top of Group C ahead of giants Germany and the Netherlands. They have a chance to extend their winning run and tighten their grip on the top of the table when they face Belarus, a team that sits rock bottom of the group. Northern Ireland will want to win this one if they are going to challenge the Germans and the Dutch in this group and it starts with beating the smaller sides. They’ve already beaten the hosts at home and are favourites to complete a double.
Hungary to inflict another defeat on Wales?
Ryan Giggs’ men suffered defeat over the weekend as they narrowly lost 2-1 to Croatia which saw them fall to fourth in the table. The Welshmen are in a very tricky group where four teams reached the 2016 Round of 16 and are all battling for a top two place. Wales face a difficult away trip to a hungry Hungarian team who sit top of Group E. The visitors have lost three of their last five away matches whilst the hosts have won four straight home matches. The Welsh might be in for another long night in Budapest.
Turkey to tighten grip on top Group H
The Turks have won five straight matches in an impressive run which saw them beat world champions France 2-0 at home. Iceland have not impressed but sit third, level on points with France on six. In their last home game against Albania, they struggled all game but finally registered a laboured 1-0 win. Against Turkey, they are facing a hungrier and better team. Senol Gunes’ side’s form make them a formidable opponent.
France to bounce back
It’s been a poor start to qualifying for Andorra, who’ve lost each of their first three matches in Group H. They welcome world champions France, a match where a win will be beyond the bounds of possibility. France lost to Turkey 2-0 last time out. After easily winning their first two games, Didier Deschamps’ side showed complacency against Turkey and they paid the price. However, they will be too much for Andorra tonight. They have superior in every department and the hosts will need more than a miracle to pull off a win.
Steve Clarke to get a baptism of fire in his first away match
Belgium are flying are the moment. Three straight wins have kept them firmly in the driving seat on top of Group I. Scotland meanwhile are looking to break into the top two if they beat the Belgians. However, this is going to be a mountain for them. Belgium are the best team in the world according to the FIFA rankings and Steve Clarke wouldn’t have wanted his first away match to be against them. It is difficult to think of a shock Scotland win, given the Red Devils have won four out of five matches and lost two since 2016.
