The domestic season in Europe takes a break this week and tomorrow starts the last session of EURO qualifiers as the 2020 competition is coming in the summer. Let’s find some value in one of my favorite things to bet on, EUROPEAN INTERNATIONAL SOCCER!
TURKEY V ICELAND: Turkey can book a spot in EURO 2020 with a win here against an Iceland side that’s been terrible. This is not the team of a couple years ago and they are back to conceding a lot of goals and the talent is getting older and or drying up in a small country. Turkey is always very good at home and play with a big time sense of purpose tomorrow. They have kept a clean sheet beaten there opponent in 4 straight. PICK: Turkey to win (-140)
ALBANIA V ANDORRA: A game that means very little as both teams can’t qualify and are just playing out the string. As an Albanian American that saddens me, but they will be back. Albania should win, they are always very good in defense. The problem that always lies with us is can we score the ever elusive goal? Ill say yes… as Andorra is a bottom five team in Europe. But I won’t be on this match. PICK: PASS
CZECH REPUBLIC V KOSOVO: This is a huge game as both sides are neck and neck in 2nd in the group behind England. They need it BADLY. As someone whose is from a town very close to the Kosovo border, I am rooting hard for them. They have been sneaky, brave and tough to breakdown at times. This should be a fun match as both are in good form. Kosovo has scored in 17 of 18 overall and the Czech’s have been flying too scoring in 7 straight. PICK: Both teams score a goal (-110)
ENGLAND V MONTENEGRO: England is in EURO 2020… they are one of the best teams in Europe and have nothing to worry about. This to me is going to be a long day for the Montenegrins, England just destroyed Bulgaria 5 nil and it could be similar here. The game really doesn’t mean much and i’ll pass. PICK: PASS
FRANCE V MOLDOVA: France won the World Cup in 2018, however this team has not looked like the same group. They haven’t qualified yet but this match won’t a problem. Moldova are awful and I honestly can’t remember the last time they’ve scored a goal. Seriously. In fact they’ve scored just twice over the last calendar year. There just isn’t much value here and i’m not laying 4 goals. PICK: PASS
PORTUGAL V LITHUANIA: Lithuania is a basketball country, soccer is NOT a forte. They have no shot to qualify and this game means nothing. I don’t see them offering much here and Portugal is as usual is fierce. Better bets on the board. PICK: PASS
SERBIA V LUXEMBOURG: I really like the Serbs in this match. They are off wins is 2 of the last 3 and should control this match on both sides. Luxembourg are useless going forward and offer very little. They’ve actually lost by 2 or more in 3 straight. Serbia is playing well and are at home here and have scored 2 plus in 4 of the last 5 matches. PICK: Serbia -2.5 (+130)
