UEFA Nations League Preview: France Host German In Pick Of The Round

UEFA Nations League Preview: France Host German In Pick Of The Round

Meanwhile, Norway host Bulgaria while Ireland attempt to exact revenge on Wales

Another round of action in the newly formed UEFA Nations League is set to take place this coming Tuesday evening (16 October) with the pick of the matches seeing current world champions France taking on former World Cup holders Germany. In addition, Norway and Bulgaria are set to meet and Ireland will look to settle the score with neighbours Wales, who beat them 4-1 in the corresponding fixture last month.

First things first

As a new customer and with the UEFA Nations League already underway, there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, France will hope to extend their unbeaten run of form when they host Germany. The French have four points in two outings in the UEFA Nations League, having drawn with Germany last month 0-0, before edging past Holland with a 2-1 win.

Following their disastrous World Cup campaign where they were eliminated at the first hurdle, Germany have continued to struggle under Joachim Low. The side has collected just a single point in the UEFA Nations League and were thrashed 3-0 by Holland last time out.

It is therefore of little surprise that France come into the match as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points. You can back France to win in front of their own fans at just 1.65, with Germany out t 4.75 to win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00, according to Oddsshark.

A comfortable, 2-0 win for France is priced competitively at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out. In addition, you could triply any investment by backing France to win to nil (without Germany scoring a goal).

Bulgaria look to maintain 100 per cent record

Bulgaria will look to maintain their 100 per cent start to the UEFA Nations League when they travel to take on Norway. The Bulgarians have actually won their last four matches in a row across all competitions, with three of those triumphs coming by a 2-1 score line.

Norway, meanwhile, have also been in good form of late, winning four of their last five outings across all competitions. Their one defeat in that time came against Bulgaria last month in this tournament, and they will be looking to take all three points in front of their own fans on this occasion.

And with home advantage, it is Norway who come into this clash as the red hot favourites to pick up the victory. You can back Norway to take the points at just 1.57, with visitors Bulgaria out at 5.50 to continue their recent winning streak – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.

A 2-1 win for Norway comes in at 9.00, offering close to a ten-fold return on any investment. In addition, you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game and both teams to score – both of which come in at a price of 2.50.

Ireland out for revenge against Wales

And finally, Ireland will be out for revenge on Wales when the pair meet on Tuesday night. The Irish lost the corresponding fixture last month 4-1 and have failed to win any of their last three outings across all competitions – their most recent result was a goalless draw with Denmark in this competition.

Wales, on the other hand, look to be struggling slightly under rookie boss Ryan Giggs. Despite that early win over Ireland they have lost their last two games, including a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Spain in a friendly fixture.

The betting is tight, but it is Ireland who come in as the slight favourites to seal all three points in this contest. You can more than double your money by backing the Irish to do so at 2.50, with Wales only slightly higher at 3.20 to pick up a much needed victory on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 2.90.

We are not expecting a goal fest, but with the fans behind them Ireland should just about nick it. A narrow, 1-0 win for the home side is priced at 6.50, with striker Shane Long at 2.87 to find the back of the net.
