Germany vs Netherlands Betting Tips
These countries met twice in the Nations League, which saw the Netherlands take advantage of Germany still reeling after the World Cup by taking four points from the matches.
However, Joachim Low’s side gained a modicum of revenge by winning 3-2 in Amsterdam when the sides met in June in Euro 2020 qualifying.
That made it 12 goals in their last three meetings and backing over 3.5 goals at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 could pay dividends here.
Germany were the top scorers in 2018 World Cup UEFA qualifying with 43 goals across their 10 games and have already netted 13 in their Euro 2020 campaign, whilst their last two matches against the Netherlands have seen over three strikes.
Slovakia vs Croatia Betting Tips
Croatia are available at 21/20 (2.05) to win this one and that would seem like the natural bet here, given that Zlatko Dalic’s men reached the World Cup final just over 12 months ago.
However, Croatia have struggled since then, finishing bottom of their Nations League group despite beating Spain and most recently lost 2-1 at home to Tunisia. They have also lost their last three competitive away games.
Slovakia also had a poor Nations League campaign but have an exceptional home record in recent years, winning six of their last seven competitive matches in front of their own fans, and are worth backing at 8/11 (1.73) in the double chance market.
Slovenia vs Poland Betting Tips
Poland have begun their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign in fine style with four wins from four, scoring eight goals whilst conceding zero, and look excellent value at 6/5 (2.20) to make it five victories.
They were perhaps out of their depth in the Nations League, finishing bottom of a group also containing Portugal and Italy, but appear to have bounced back in some style.
Slovenia have won just one of their last 12 competitive matches with their only victory in Euro 2020 qualifying so far coming against Latvia.
