EURO 2020 QUALIFIERS: We preview Saturday’s Euro 2020 Qualifiers between CYPRUS V SCOTLAND, AZERBAIJAN V WALES and NORTHERN IRELAND V NETHERLANDS with recommended BETDAQ bets.
CYPRUS V SCOTLAND
2pm It’s been a qualifying campaign to forget for Scotland in Group I. At least they have the Playoffs to look forward to thanks to the Nations League, however if they don’t start playing better football they won’t be getting through that way. They have already beaten Cyprus in Group I, however it wasn’t straight forward and the only team Scotland have managed to score against away from home in this group is San Marino.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Cyprus 3.1, Scotland 2.56 and the draw is 3.3. We can’t have Scotland as short as 2.56 here and have to lay them from a value point of view. Cyprus have come up short against Belgium and Russia; as you would expect them to – however they sit one point ahead of Scotland in the table and with home advantage they should be able to stop Scotland from winning here. It’s frustrating for them to be above Scotland in the table and already out with Scotland going to the Playoffs, but they can get a result here.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Lay Scotland at 2.56.

AZERBAIJAN V WALES
5pm Group E is the most fascinating Group going into the final games of Euro 2020 Qualifying. There’s two rounds of fixtures left and Wales play twice, so despite them sitting in fourth there’s still a chance they can finish second. The pressure is certainly on and they need to win both their games. They needed a late Gareth Bale goal to beat Azerbaijan in Cardiff and they will need to perform better here.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Azerbaijan 7.8, Wales 1.5 and the draw is 4.1. This is clearly a must win game for Wales, but we feel that’s factored into the price and they are too short at 1.5. They barely beat Azerbaijan in Cardiff and although the home side sit bottom of the group with only one point – Wales have been pretty poor in this qualifying campaign. Wales may be able to get the job done here but can’t see it being impressive or anything bar very close. Azerbaijan can get a result, but we much prefer to back them +1 goal on the Asian Handicap (Stakes void if Wales win by exactly 1 goal) at 2.0 which looks very good value.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Azerbaijan +1 goal Asian Handicap to beat Wales at 2.0.

NORTHERN IRELAND V NETHERLANDS
7.45pm It’s a big night in Belfast for Northern Ireland. They started Group C superbly but they have come up short against Germany and the Netherlands to slip down to third spot. There’s no shame in losing to sides like that, and even if they were to win tonight – they have to play Germany away in the last round of fixtures while Netherlands play Estonia at home. After losing four from four in the Nations League; Northern Ireland gave a brave effort here but look to have come up short bar some amazing scenes.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Northern Ireland 9.0, Netherlands 1.45 and the draw is 5.0. Northern Ireland performed superbly in the away fixture of this group, they actually took the lead when scoring in the 75th minute. Perhaps it was a sign of how good Netherlands have become in recent times that they were able to bounce back and still win 3-1. They have been goal scoring machines lately and at 1.45, they can outclass this Northern Ireland side.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Netherlands to beat Northern Ireland at 1.45.
