We expect both teams to enter this tie hopping to snatch the points against the rivals for the top spot in the group. Netherlands have a positive head to head record with a 5 wins, three draws and two defeats in ten meetings. However, Turkey claimed four points when the two sides last battled it out in the qualifying 2016 Euro campaign in France.
Turkey enjoyed a fabulous EURO 2021 run after finishing behind France with 23 points from 10 games. The top solid defence represented the main strength for the Turkish team in the previous qualifying run. They shipped no more than three goals in ten outings. They will have a strong centre back competition for this match with the likes of Soyuncu, Merih Demiral, Ozan Kabak.
Netherlands will also play the upcoming EURO 2021 after finishing the second behind Germany in group C. They conceded seven goals in eight qualifying affairs, proving to be relatively tough to break down themselves. Also six of their last eight outings has ended with fewer than three goals scored.
Having all this at hand, we expect few goals to be scored at this venue. Therefore we pick UNDER 2.5 GOALS as our tip of the day.
2. Malta vs Russia
Malta with FIFA ranking of 176 is the world's worst team. They are also part of the bottom most league D in the UNL since its inception. They were also placed dead last in their respective groups in EURO 2016 and 2021 with one win from a total of 20 games. They were also placed dead last in the last 2018 World cup qualification campaign with 9 losses and a draw from a total of ten fixtures.
Since the two teams are locking horns for the first time, Russia are one of the heavyweight in Group H of the Worldcup qualifiers. They have made it 8 times to the final and even knocked out spain in the process. Moreover, they compete in the far more league B in UNL tournament and they have finished second in group G in 2016 EURO qualifications. They delivered an even better performance on the 2021 EURO qualifications as they recorded 8 wins from ten games and became second after Belgium in Group 1.
Therefore, having looked at all this, we expect Russia to deliver a great performance this Wednesday.
Pick: Russia win
3. Belgium vs Wales
Belgium ended their nations League group at the top of the standing with 5 wins in six matches against England,Denmark and Iceland. They have scored at least 2 goals in five of these outings and they will come in this game after a 4-2 win against Denmark.
Roberto Martinez will have his strongest squad to face Wales this Wednesday with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Lukaku being the first in the line while Hazard will miss out due to injury. The Belgians will be motivated to win this game after they suffered one of the most painful defeat in the history by Wales. It happened five years ago in the quarter finals of the 2016 EURO in France. The Dragons claimed a 3-1 victory to advance to the semifinals.
Meanwhile the Red Devils are winless on the last 4 clashes against Wales. Wales have allowed just one goal in six Nations League and no more than six goals in the European championship qualifiers.
Therefore, with the current team form we expect Belgium to emerge victorious here this Wednesday.
Pick: Belgium win
