UEFA Nations League Preview: Portugal Can Finish Top Of Group With Win Over Poland

Meanwhile, Scotland look to finish on a high against Israel while Sweden host Russia

It is the final match day in the group stage of the newly formed UEFA Nations League this coming Tuesday (20 November) which means there will be some key contests to keep an eye on. Portugal can finish top of their group if they take all three points against Poland, while Scotland need maximum points against Israel and Russia travel to Sweden.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, Portugal welcome Poland to Guimaraes looking for all three points to finish top of the group. The side managed a goalless draw with Italy last time out and now have the perfect opportunity to build on an excellent display on the road.

 

The result means that Portugal have lost just one of their last 12 matches across all competitions and can come into this match full of confidence of getting the result they need. Poland, by way of comparison, lost at home last time out and cannot be relishing the prospect of facing this in-form Portugal outfit.

 

And unsurprisingly, it is Portugal who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.61, while Poland are all the way out at 6.50 – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00, according to Oddsshark.

 

A comfortable, 2-0 win for Portugal comes in t 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out. In addition, you could more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Portugal victory and a “No” to both teams scoring, which is priced at 2.50.

 

Scotland out for revenge on Israel

Next up, Scotland host Israel at Hampden Park looking to build on their impressive win over Albania last week. The Scots strolled past their opponents 4-0 and can finish this group on a high with another win here.

 

And Scotland can take heart from the fact that they have won three of the last four meetings between these two teams – although they lost the most recent, a 2-1 reverse last month away from home. In addition, Scotland have lost four of their last five matches on home soil, a slide in form which needs to end sooner rather than later.

 

And with Israel only managing two goals in their last five away games this could well be a low scoring affair. And it is Scotland who come into the game as favourites to win and are priced at just 1.80 to do so, with Israel at 5.25 to take all three points on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.

 

A narrow, 1-0 win for Scotland is priced at 6.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$30 pay out. In addition, you could more than triple any investment by backing a combo bet of a home victory and under 2.5 goals in the game, which is priced at 3.50.

 

Sweden out to take all three points against Russia

And finally, Sweden welcome World Cup hosts Russia to the Friends Arena in Solna. Russia were trounced 3-0 in a friendly by Germany last week, but a point will be enough for them here to secure promotion.

 

However, Sweden kept their own promotion hopes alive with a 1-0 win over Turkey last time out. If the Swedes beat Russia in this key contest they then will win promotion to League A for the next edition of this tournament.

 

And it is indeed Sweden who come into this match as the clear favourites to do just that. You can back Sweden to take all three points at just 1.95, while Russia are out at 4.33 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.50.

 

A 2-1 win for Sweden is priced competitively at 9.00, offering close to a ten-fold return on any investment. You could also more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.30, while both teams to score is at 2.00.
