Friday's Live World Cup Qualifiers
Russia
VS
Portugal
Kick-off: 16:00BST
Watch and Bet on this game live with Bet365

An early kick off on Friday sees the top two teams in Group F put their 100 per cent winning records on the line in Moscow.

Fabio Capello's side have been impressive in their 2-0 win over Northern Ireland and in a 4-0 demolition of Israel but will face a much more intriguing test against Paulo Bento's men.

Bet365 make the home side slight 7/4 (2.75) underdogs while Portugal are the 8/5 (2.60) favourites, the draw is a 11/5 (3.20) shot.

Both teams to score is priced at an attractive 11/10 (2.10) with Bet365. Although Russia have kept two clean sheets in their past two matches, their defence will surely be tested by a Portugal side full of attacking talent.

Belarus
VS
Spain
Kick off: 19:00 BST
Watch and Bet on this game live with Paddy Power

Spain's defence of the World Cup started with a hard fought victory over Georgia courtesy of a late Roberto Soldado goal.

Vicente Del Bosque will hope the meeting with Belarus in Minsk is somewhat of a more comfortable affair.

The odds would certainly suggest the 61-year-old has little to worry about, the reigning champions are priced at 1/8 (1.13) to secure another away win while the hosts are longshot 14/1 (15.0) chances with Paddy Power to shock the visitors, a draw is available at 7/1 (8.0).

Spain are available at 7/5 (2.40) to win with a -2 goal handicap whilst they are 8/13 (1.63) to record a win to nil.

Serbia
VS
Belgium
Kick-off: 19:30 BST
Watch and Bet on this game live with Paddy Power

In one of the most anticipated matches on Friday, Serbia look to build on their impressive 6-1 demolition of Wales when they take on Belgium.

The home side are priced at 6/4 (2.50) to extend their winning run while Belgium are available at 17/10 (2.70).

Despite Serbia's free-scoring result against Wales, the bookmakers expect another tight game with under 2.5 goals priced at 4/7 (1.57) and over 2.5 goals at 5/4 (2.25) shot.

Group A is finely balanced after the opening two matches, with Serbia, Belgium and Croatia all on four points but the Serbians leading the group due to their superior goal difference.

Belgium's last match ended in a 1-1 draw against Croatia, a repeat of that scoreline is available at 5/1 (6.0) with Paddy Power.

Ecuador
VS
Chile
Kick-off: 22:00 BST
Watch and Bet on this game live with Bet365

South American qualification for the World Cup may be more advanced than the European section at this point but there is still plenty of play for as the table is looking very congested at the top.

Ecuador are currently in third position and secured a 1-1 draw against Uruguay in their last game whilst opponents Chile have the ability to overtake the hosts with a win in Quito on Friday evening.

The home side are now unbeaten in four games, winning three of those, all to nil, and are favourites to claim another win at 19/20 (1.95) with Bet365, Chile are rated as 3/1 (4.0) outsiders.

These two sides met in a friendly in August and Ecuador secured a comfortable 3-0 win, a repeat of that result pays 16/1 (17.0) with Bet365.

Argentina
VS
Uruguay
Kick-off: 01:00 BST (Saturday)
Watch and Bet on this game live with Paddy Power

Argentina hold a narrow advantage at the top of the qualifying group and will hope to extend that margin when they play hots to fourth placed Uruguay.

Gonzalo Higuain has been in fine form during the campaign, with six goals to his name and Lionel Messi has amassed four goals so far.

The home side are 1/2 (1.50) favourites to beat a Uruguay side who have only won two of their last five and were comprehensively beaten 4-0 by high flying Colombia a month ago.

The visitors are 6/1 (7.0) outsiders to collect three points that could put them top of the group if other results go their way.
