Norway vs Turkey
Turkey were poor in last season’s Nations League and were relegated to the third tier after just one win in six, though it’s fair to say that they were probably paying the price for their fine Euro 2020 qualifying effort.
They took four points from world champions France in that campaign which is a further measure of their quality and potential, and after just one defeat in eight, they could have a little bit too much steel and class here for a Norway side who generally misfired against minnows Gibraltar in midweek, despite a 0-3 win on the rock. Turkey to win 2-0 at full time
Netherlands vs Latvia
Frank De Boer’s men have now conceded in their last five games and allowed Turkey to hit four past them on Wednesday evening, so there’s a small chance that Latvia could spoil a clean sheet in Amsterdam.
The visitors have taken on far inferior opposition of late but have managed to net in seven of their last eight outings – and the possibility of a consolation goal here could grow if the Dutch already have the points sewn up and decide to take their foot off the pedal.
With that in mind, a small wager on both teams to score is tempting at around 5/2 and we’re also forecasting a 5-1 score-line in favour of De Boer’s charges as they seek to get off the mark in Group G. Netherland to win 5-1 at full time
Belarus vs Estonia
New coach Thomas Haberli saw his side lose their opening World Cup qualifier 6-2 against the Czech Republic of Wednesday, in what was his first match in charge.
It is unlikely that Belarus will secure such an emphatic victory on Saturday, but we are predicting the hosts to claim all three points.
Indeed, we predict that Belarus will win the match to nil, given their own defensive record and Estonia’s recent lack of goals on the road. Prediction: Belarus to win 2-0 at full time
