October 9, 2014: Predictions For The EURO 2016 Qualifiers

euro 2016 predictions

Today, October 9th, we bring you the best betting predictions for the EURO 2016 qualifiers. For the first time, Uefa has decided to switch up the format of the qualifiers and instead of having all of them played on the same day, they are spread out during five consecutive days, so there will be plenty of interesting action coming our way. Such official games on national level are more important for each time involved as oppose to what league games represent for club teams. That’s because a qualification cycle like the one for the upcoming EURO 2016 Championship in France is much shorter (10-12 matches) and even a single point can make all the difference.

October 9th, Group G, Sweden v Russia Prediction

Group G is among the toughest ones in this campaign as six countries have been drawn together and there are four strong sides competing for just two places – Sweden, Russia, Montenegro and Austria. That’s what makes this Sweden v Russia prediction so important. It’s like a six-point type of match for these two teams. Russia won their opening game convincingly by 4:0, but that should come as little surprise given that they played against Liechtenstein. Sweden started with a much tougher task away to Austria and came with a point after a 1:1 draw, so they will be looking to get all three points in this one. However, they will have to deal without the man pictured above – Zlatan Ibrahimovic, so Elemander will have to fill some real big shoes in this one for the Swedes to at least score.

Betting Verdict: Both Teams to Score @ 2.10

October 10th, Group H, Bulgaria v Croatia Prediction

These two nations have been drawn together with Italy, so it’s up to them to square off who will continue as second from Group H. That’s the reason why this game is so crucial and thus we had to include it in our list of the top EURO 2016 qualification predictions. The Croats have the better individuals and overall the better team. They played well in the last World Cup in Brazil, and fans of football are well familiar with the likes of Modric, Olic, Jelavic, Srna, Corluka, Prajnic, Rakitic, Mandzukic. The Bulgarians do not have even a single star caliber player in their ranks. However, they will be backed by a serious crowd of 30,000+ fans, which will make up for a hot atmosphere at the Vasil Levski stadium in Sofia. Still though, we expect that all the talent Croatia have in their team will allow them snatch a narrow win here, and online bookies like bet365.com offer some decent odds.

Betting Verdict: Croatia to Win @ 2.35

October 10th, Group A, Turkey v Czech Republic Prediction

We continue with the most accurate EURO 2016 predictions for October 10th with this crucial encounter between Turkey and the Czech Republic. Some fans might remember the absolute classic between these teams back in Euro 2008 when Turkey made a stunning comeback against the Czechs scoring three goals in the last 25 minutes overcoming a two goal deficit. There is something about the matches between these two nations as they always seem to produce quality affairs with goals in them. The Turks started this campaign with a rather disturbing defeat going down 3:0 in Iceland. Still, they have plenty of talent in their squad to battle in this group till the very end. Additionall,y their fans are known for creating an amazing atmosphere. However, Fatih Terim has to deal with a number of injuries in his squad as six players were forced out of the initial squad.

The Czechs are on the opposite end of the footballing fortunes as they enjoyed a surprise win against the group favorites Holland. Their moral will be high, and they have the quality and experience in their ranks to cause troubles in Turkey as well.

Tomáš Sivok who knows the Turks well having played in their domestic league for several years now concluded: “When I was leaving the Beşiktaş dressing room, I was told we would concede three goals. I just smiled in reply. But seriously, Turkey are going to be really dangerous, especially after losing against Iceland – their motivation will be extreme. They will put pressure on us from the first second. We cannot sit back and wait for them to come at us.”

Betting Verdict: Both Teams to Score @ 2.10
