The final round of the World Cup qualifiers is from Tuesday until Thursday, and BetXchange will again present the most interesting games regardless of the continent and the zone. Those games are
- Netherlands vs Turkey
- Rep. Ireland vs Serbia
- Poland vs England
- China vs Japan
Netherlands VS Turkey
Oranje craves to avenge the defeat from the first match in Istanbul, which saw the hosts triumphing 4-2. It was the second straight defeat against Turkey, and something the fans didn’t forget, and neither have the players.
After five rounds, the Netherlands has 10 points, one fewer than Turkey and the same as Norway, meaning that a victory in this one is a must for this group. They are one very offensive-minded team, who scored two or more goals in eight of the past 10 games.
Meanwhile, Turkey showed lots of weaknesses in the previous EURO, losing all three matches in the group stage, with a total goal difference of 1-8.
Our pick here is pretty simple, the home team to win. Oranje has better players, and on top of that, plays at home where they rarely lose points. They have a massive motive as well, because a win practically secures them at least the second spot in the assembly.
Pick: Netherlands 0.31 at BetXchange
The Republic of Ireland VS Serbia
We’ve selected more from Ireland, who posted some pretty poor results in these qualifiers. Additionally, their morale dropped following an unreal ending in Portugal, where they had a lead until the stoppage time when Ronaldo netted twice.
The last straw happened during the weekend when captain Seamus Coleman suffered an injury and had to withdraw from the team. Ireland is dead last with Azerbaijan in Group A, with just one point.
Serbia looks pretty good since the start and has the same number of points as Portugal, 10, but is holding the top spot because of a better goal difference. They defeated Luxemburg 4-1 on Saturday and now aim to add another three points and peacefully wait for the clash in Portugal.
In our opinion, the guests will win the match, because of the better current form. The profit is very tempting, and we will give it a go because it doubles the investment.
Pick: Serbia 1.00 at BetXchange
Poland VS England
Poland has no other option but to beat England and stay in the race for the top spot in Group I. Otherwise, they will have a lot of trouble until the end of the qualifiers because Albania breaths down their neck.
The Poles defeated Albanians 4-1, and San Marino 1-7 in the last few days. Now they come in this encounter fired up, ready to avenge the defeat Wembley from this March.
As for the Three Lions, Southgate’s side is perfect, with all wins and nothing but that. If they snap at least one point back from Warsaw, they will pretty much validate the top spot in the assembly. That is why most fans expect to see the characteristic defensive tactics Soutghtage prefers, which will lower the game’s efficiency.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.62 at BetXchange
China VS Japan
The great derby of the Far East is in the center of attention all over the world. These two nations like to compete in any sport, particularly in football, and that guarantees a good show.
China lost to Australia on the road in the opening round of this stage, 3-0, while Japan suffered a shock at home, allowing Oman to flee with a 0-1 victory. It was one of the biggest sensations this year, and we can just imagine what is going inside the heads of the Japanese players.
After these losses, be sure that both teams will be very cautious and won’t be keen to attack right away. That is why we find it smart to bet on a draw at halftime. We predict 0-0 as the correct score, but just in case, a draw would be better, to lower the risk.
