Nations League Acca – Wed 14th October

I have been frustrated with the England National team for many reasons over the years, but it is rare that seeing them win has been frustrating. However, that was the case this weekend when a fortunate deflected goal from Mason Mount (who inexplicably got named man of the match as a result) saw England defeat a weakened Belgium side 2-1 at Wembley.

In truth, Belgium could have been three or four up inside the first 25 minutes or so as they cut England apart at will. A disallowed goal and a somewhat fortuitous penalty brought England back into the game at the end of the first half and while Gareth Southgate’s men performed well after the break, I felt Belgium were still the better side.

That result was annoying because it was the only one of five to let me down last week as the other three results all came in bang on the money and pretty much in the circumstances I said they would too. So you can imagine how frustrated I was watching England grab a win they didn’t really deserve, at a cost to my acca bet!

Still, at least it shows how close I was across the other games taking place at the weekend and as such I am now going to put together a bet for the midweek games taking place in the Nations League on Tuesday and Wednesday night, which includes key games for all the four home nations plus the Republic of Ireland plus a couple of big games for European football’s big hitters too.

Here’s hoping we can go one better than last week and land a winner this time around after going so close last time. All my selections are from Wednesday night’s games as I felt the games on Tuesday didn’t offer that good a value.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 14th October

Scotland v Czech Republic – Draw

Scotland are doing superbly well in their Nations League group and a win here would see them take real control over the group. That said, and given the fact that they beat the Czech’s away from home last month, I still feel that the Scots have an awful tendency to shoot themselves in the foot at times and as such, I think this Czech side, which is more talented than recent results suggest, do have the ability to come to Hampden and perhaps eke out a point.

Bulgaria v Wales – Draw

When these teams met last month Bulgaria seemed set to claim a draw in Cardiff before Neco Williams popped up in injury time to head Wales to a 1-0 win. That game was very close between the two sides and while I do feel that Wales are probably the better team, that would be the case for sure if Bale was in the squad and with him, I would have backed a Wales win. Without him and with Aaron Ramsey not fully fit, I can foresee another tough game and perhaps this time Bulgaria earning a share of the spoils.

England v Denmark – Home Win

I have to admit that after England let me down at the weekend by winning, I was a bit reticent to pick them here but I felt they were decent value to beat Denmark at home. Gareth Southgate’s men should take confidence from that win over Belgium and despite a 0-0 draw between the two teams last month, I think with home advantage, England should expect a more positive result. For that to happen, I think Harry Kane needs to play from the start and I would also like to see Grealish play after a very impressive showing against Wales, especially considering the Danes are likely to set up to be difficult to break down. This will be close but I am just backing England to nab another win here.

Croatia v France – Away Win

These two teams have met twice over the last two years and France have won 4-2 on both occasions, last month in Paris in the Nations League and in the World Cup Final back in 2018. Croatia sit third in the group well off the pace being set by Portugal and France at the top and even a win would not lift them above the French, however I feel at home, Croatia’s more adventurous spirit may well be their undoing here as France are superbly set up to hit teams on the counter attack, rather than pushing a game as they tried to do against a defensive Portugal at the weekend. With the likes of Mbappe, Griezmann and Pogba pulling the strings, I can see the French earning themselves another win against a side yet to beat them in seven previous meetings.
