Best betting tips to bank on for Saturday
The UEFA Nations league continues, and exciting matches are on display, meanwhile, we have come up with three games that can best be banked on by punters for good returns on Saturday.
PORTUGAL vs FRANCE
Group A in the UNL is entering its climax. Both the Navigators and Les Bleus have secured ten points each, and with just two more match-days remaining (including this upcoming one), tension is at an all-time high, in regards to who will secure progression to the semi finals.
Considering that the other two teams, Croatia and Sweden, are already out of contention for the knockouts, this encounter at the Estadio da Luz is a virtual final. The winner of this fixture will in all probability pass on to the next round, while the loser will have to wait another two years to have a shot.
Suffice it to say that the game will be fiercely contested, and with the sheer talent on both sides (especially in the attacking front), goals are sure to come from both squads.
The Navigators recorded a 3-0 win the last match-day in the competition, against Sweden. In the meantime, Les Bleus recorded a 1-2 win away from home against Croatia – in a repeat of the 2018 World Cup Final.
Going on, Santos’s men were unbeaten in 21 of their previous 22 overall fixtures, and they had even defeated Andorra 7-0 in their most recent game, which was a friendly. At home, they are on an unbeaten run since March of 2018, and had also won seven of their former eight such appearances.
And they had also scored a total of 23 goals from their preceding six home matches.
On the other hand, Deschamps’s men were unbeaten in 36 of their last 40 overall fixtures, and they are also on a five-game winning run away from home.
On top of all that, they are the reigning world champions, while their counterparts are the reigning Euro as well as Nations League champions. As such, it’s a given that either team will be determined to showcase their superiority.
Surely expect goals to come from both teams this weekend, priced at 1.90 odds by 1xbet.
GERMANY vs UKRAINE
Germany is having their own struggle in UNL since they are caught in a tight competition with Spain in the mix in Group 4 this season. The host is unbeaten so far after their four appearances until now. They will host on the back of a 1-0 home win against Czech Republic last time out in an international friendly.
Ukraine is putting a tough game for the Germans with leveling their points in the table. The visitor has lost two of their four league clashes so far this term. They will visit after suffering a clean sheet defeat on the road against Poland in an international friendly with a 2-0 score on the board.
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in full-time. With their overall form in UNL and the squad strength, Germany has more chances of creating opportunities for the upcoming match.
Besides, the Real Madrid midfield-general, Toni Kroos, has been called back to the squad, which will add flair to the midfield in the game.
The host has been unbeaten for the last eleven fixtures across all major competitions in their schedule, including an unbeaten streak in UNL. They enjoy the ground advantage in the game and are also likely to use that to their favor with the squad strength.
The tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters, as the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. With more urge to take all three points, we can expect the home team to push continuously in the encounter. The over 2.5 option is priced at 1.44 odds by 22bet
SWITZERLAND vs SPAIN
One more loss and it would be all over for the Red Crosses. As of now they are placed dead last in the table in Group A4. They have posted just two points on the board from their total four fixtures, and understandably are still searching for their first win.
They are trailing by four points below the third-placed Ukraine, and with two match-days remaining, time is fast running out for the team to act.
Suffice it to say that they are under unimaginable pressure, and are forced to go after the three points this weekend.
However, they are taking on former world champions and current group toppers La Roja.
Luis Enrique’s men have a lead of one point over the second-placed Germany. They too are determined to go after the win, since the narrow lead over the Germans might not hold. La Roja need a ticket to the semi-finals at any cost.
Vladimir Petkovic’s men were held to a 3-3 draw the last match-day on the road, by Germany. In the meantime, La Roja lost 1-0 on the road against Ukraine.
Going on, the Red Crosses are on a six-game winless run, and they had lost four of these match-ups. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of these fixtures. And at home, they are still searching for their first win in 2020.
On the other hand, the 2010 World champions have lost just one of their preceding seventeen match-ups, and they have lost just twice away from home in over 50 months.
In addition, Enrique’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent, and they are currently ranked 6th in the world, while their counterparts are not even in the top-15 spots.
Likely, expect Spain to have a cracker of game this weekend. The full time win for Spain will be too much of a risk, so we go with Spain to win either half priced at 1.40 odds by Betwinner.
