Expect goals in Astana

Alex McLeish

Scotland have the honour of kicking off the qualification process for Euro 2020 as they head east to take on an improving Kazakhstan side in what should be a decent game.

Over 2.5 goals @ 29/20

Withdrawals and retirements have hit the Scots hard coming into this fixture, with Kieran Tierney joining Andrew Robertson on the sidelines.

Alex McLeish’s side are already at least guaranteed a play-off spot as they aim to end a run of over two decades without qualifying for a major tournament.

The Kazakhs could be dangerous, though, and are in decent form on their controversial artificial pitch, losing just one of their last six in Astana.

Scotland have seen over 2.5 goals in their last eight competitive games on the road and that may again be the case today in Group I.

Israel to win @ 5/4

Our second pick comes from Group G, where Israel look too good for Slovenia.

The visitors to Haifa have two genuine stars in Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak and Atalanta playmaker Josip Ilicic but are otherwise a bit of a mixed bag and have won only one of their last 10 on the road.

Israel are slowly improving under Andi Herzog and have won their last three at home, as well as scoring twice or more in their last four.

This seems a good game for them to kick-off their campaign and more positive punters may even back the value on a home win and both to score at 4/1.
