UEFA Nations League Preview: Slovakia And Czech Republic Meet, Both Looking For First Win



Meanwhile, Holland look to get one over Germany while Ireland hope to avenge Denmark

The UEFA Nations League is set to continue this coming Saturday (13 October), with three potentially pivotal ties in the tournament. Slovakia and Czech Republic re set to meet, with both sides still looking for their first win, while Holland will be hoping to return to winning ways against Germany and Ireland will be out for revenge on Denmark, who prevented them from reaching the World Cup.

First things first

As a new customer and with the UEFA Nations League already underway, there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, Slovakia and Czech Republic meet with both sides in desperate need of three points. Slovakia lost their first match of the UEFA Nations League, 1-0 away to Ukraine, but now have home advantage in what has become a crucial encounter.

Both teams have won just one of their last four outings, with Czech Republic also losing to Ukraine, 2-1, in front of their own fans. As such, the loser of this match will be facing an uphill struggle to progress in the competition.

And with home advantage, it is Slovakia who come into this one as the favourites to wrap up the points. You can more than double your money by backing Slovakia to win at a price of 2.15, with Czech Republic all the way out at 3.75 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.40, according to Oddsshark.

And we expect Slovakia to edge a closely fought encounter. A 2-1 win for the home side is priced competitively at 9.00, while you could also more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.30, with both teams to score coming in at 2.00.

Germany look to extend unbeaten run against Holland

On the same day, Holland host former world champions Germany as they look to reverse their own rotten fortunes. Holland lost their UEFA Nations League opener to France, 2-1, but now face an equally stringent test against a German side desperate to make up for their World Cup disaster.

Germany, however, have gone six games unbeaten against Holland and will be confident of making it seven. The visitors are the favourites to take the points and you can more than double your money by backing them to do so at a price of 2.10.

Despite home advantage, Holland are out at 3.50 to pick up their first win in the tournament, with a draw slightly higher at 3.75. And we fancy this game to end honours even, with a 1-1 draw priced at 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 under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.

Can Ireland avenge Denmark?

And finally, Ireland will be out for revenge when they welcome Denmark to Dublin this weekend. The Danes famously thrashed Ireland 5-1 last year to qualify for the World Cup in Russia, and Martin O’Neill will be hoping for some sort of reaction from his players.

However, Ireland appear to be on an alarming slide, having also lost their UEFAA Nations League opener 4-1 to neighbours Wales. Denmark, by way of comparison, comfortably saw off Wakes 2-0 and will like their chances of getting the better of a technically limited Irish outfit as well.

Ireland have won just one of their last five matches, and that was a friendly against the USA. Denmark stopped their own run of poor form with that victory over Wales and will now be looking to build up some momentum.

And while the betting is close, it is Denmark who come in as the favourites to seal the points. You can more than double your money by backing the Danes at 2.62, with Ireland out at 3.10 to get their first points on the board – a draw is at the same price.

A 2-1 win for Denmark is priced competitively t 10.00, thereby offering a ten-fold return on any investment. In addition, you could double your money by backing both over 2.5 goals in the game (2.50) and both teams to score (2.10).
