Portugal vs Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan have kept clean sheets in their last four starts, albeit against much inferior opposition to what they face on Wednesday.The last four meetings between the teams have produced fewer than four goals.
Prediction: Hometeam to win 3-0
Turkey vs Netherlands
Turkey is a team to be respected after qualifying alongside France for the European Champions and they managed to beat the world champions 2-0 in that qualifying campaign, while also earning a 1-1 draw at the Stade de France.The Dutch are unbeaten in seven away trips, but they have only managed draws against Bosnia Herzegovina and Northern Ireland in recent outings.
Latvia vs Montenegro
Montenegro have seen more success in recent games with just one loss in their last eight and four wins in that time. They have scored 11 goals in that time but have kept 6 clean sheet, conceding just twice in over 700 minutes of football.
Prediction:Away team to win 1-0
Cyprus vs Slovakia
Slovakia have exchanged wins and losses in recent times with wins over Northern Ireland and Ireland being nulled by losses to Israel and Czech Republic. They have also beaten Scotland 1-0, but a defeat by the same scoreline hints at their inconsistency.
Prediction:Away team to win 2-0
Belgium vs Wales
Belgium head into this game as heavy favourites to top Group E and they will be confident of getting off to a winning start on Wednesday. They have won their last four matches and have lost just once in the last two and half years.
Prediction:Both teams to score
Malta vs Russia
Despite their relative good form, Malta will be looking to come out of this match with a respectable score rather than expecting a positive result. The visitors have struggled in recent times, losing back to back games against Serbia and Turkey and failing to win in their last seven attempts.
Prediction:Away team to win 4-0
