Nations League Betting: Tuesday treble featuring Ukraine and Norway

Last Updated

The second international break of the season comes to a close on Tuesday night with the Nations League taking centre stage.

Nine matches are being played in the tournament and we have picked out bets in three of them to combine into a 13/2 (7.50) accumulator with bet365 ahead of the clashes.

All three represent crucial matches at this stage of the competition, with each featuring permutations for promotion or relegation.

Ukraine vs Czech Republic – Ukraine to win at 3/4 (1.75)

A win for Andriy Shevchenko’s men here would see them gain promotion in League A for the next edition of the competition, and that alone should be motivation enough for them.

Ukraine are also unbeaten in eight matches, their longest such run in five years, and have won eight of their last 11 competitive home games – only losing to Croatia and Spain in that time.

Although the Czech Republic are certainly not a bad team on paper, they have lost four of their last seven matches and scored only five goals in that time so could struggle to even score in Kharkiv.

Norway vs Bulgaria – Norway to win and keep a clean sheet at 5/4 (2.20)

Norway actually lost the reverse fixture just last month but there is little to suggest they won’t exact revenge in some style here. Victory for the hosts here would also see them join Bulgaria at the top of Group C3.

September’s defeat in Sofia ended a five-match winning run for Norway, but they were able to bounce back just days later with a 1-0 win over Slovenia.

That victory made it six home wins in a row for Lars Lagerback’s men, who have kept a clean sheet in five of those wins -  with Australia the only side to score in Oslo since June 2017.

Slovenia vs Cyprus – Slovenia to keep a clean sheet at 10/11 (1.91)

At the other end of Group C3 languish Slovenia, who desperately need to beat Cyprus at home on Tuesday to have any hope of avoiding relegation. Fortunately, the stats say they should at least get a draw.

Slovenia are in a bad run of late with six losses in their last eight matches, but their home form is a different story with five wins and two draws in their last 10.

Crucially, they have also kept an impressive six clean sheets at home in those eight fixtures, and Jan Oblak will back himself to keep Cyprus at bay here considering the visitors have scored in only 11 of their last 30 away games.
