World Cup Qualifier Tips – Saturday 9th October

Last week was a frustrating one, I got my Sunday tip right, but each of my Saturday tips didn’t pan out by just the one goal. A miss is as good as a mile when it comes to accumulator betting, but I’m still well up on the season after landing that £285 win a few weeks back.

That said, I want to add to that, and quickly if I can.

I’m not sure whether that will be the case this week though if I am honest. We have another week of international games and the last few have seen some very odd results, but regardless, I am confident that my research will pay me dividends here.

There’s just two sets of games on this international break, chiefly due to four teams, France, Spain, Italy and Belgium being involved in the semifinals of the UEFA Nations League at the same time.

However, there are still some crucial games to look forward to on the first Matchday, which takes place on Friday and Saturday this week, with the second one taking place on Monday and Tuesday next week.

For this set of tips and to make things more convenient in terms of posting times, we have focused just on the games taking place in the European World Cup Qualifiers on Saturday. That does limit us a little, but it also means we have some decent odds selections available.

Let’s take a look at my tips for this weekend’s action.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 9th October

Azerbaijan v Rep. of Ireland – Draw

The last time these two teams met in Ireland they fought out a 1-1 draw and after a positive result for both teams in their last games, both managing victories, they will come into this game in confident mood. Ireland have struggled to get goals in this competition and it is that which has them in fourth place, well behind Serbia and Portugal and miles out of the race for a qualification or playoff spot. Azerbaijan are bottom of that group and their only point came in that draw in Ireland, but I think both teams will view this game as one to use to build for the future and as such, I think both teams could be a bit more experimental here with perhaps the next Euros in mind. As such, I think a draw is a sensible option again.

Scotland v Israel – Home Win

Scotland lie second in Group F well behind runaway leaders Denmark, but a point ahead of Israel and four ahead of Austria. That win in Vienna last time out was a huge one for the Scots and now if they can beat Israel at Hampden, then they could give themselves a very good chance of earning second spot in the group and a very good chance of a spot in the playoffs. They have played each other a lot of late and Israel have had the upper hand, winning two of the five games played between them in the past couple of years, drawing the others, but losing one of those games on penalties. A draw would not be a disaster for Scotland here, but would open the door again for Austria. The Scots should target a win here and this time, I think they will get it.

Hungary v Albania – Home Win

This could well be a key game in England’s group. Albania are second in the group, four points behind England, but knowing England will likely win their game against Andorra today. Hungary lie fourth but a win here would see them jump above Albania and put pressure on Poland. Hungary’s form has tailed off since the Euros in the summer and that is a worry, and in terms of form, Albania have the much better record in the past couple of games. They also beat the Hungarians in Tirana, but I think with their home support behind them, Hungary will get the win here.

Switzerland v Northern Ireland – Home Win

Switzerland know that two wins on Saturday against Northern Ireland and then on Tuesday against Lithuania will move them level on points with Italy, with a game against the Italians still to come in November. As such, there can’t be any excuses for the Swiss here. The Irish inflicted a damaging 0-0 draw on the Swiss in their last game in the group in Belfast, but on home soil I would expect this talented Swiss side to get the better of the visitors. Shaqiri will need to play a big part to open up the Irish defence, but if he can then I think Switzerland will land an important win in the context of this group.
