Tips and reviews of Group A,B,H matches scheduled on Saturday.
ISRAEL - WALES
Israel is leading Group B, although they have played 3 matches only, while the others have already collected 4 appearances.
Experience and good tactical organization are the traits of this squad, whose players are a bit older than the average of the other teams.
Technique is not excellent among Israelian players, who totally count on their experience, while the opponent, Wales, has great individualities, Gareth Bale in primis.
Bale in a match like this could be really dangerous with his pace!
Israel has collected 8 OVER 2.5 in the last 10 appearances. Our suggestion is to bet on X2 double chance and OVER 1.5.
ISRAEL: Marciano, Ben Haim, Meshumar, Ben Harush,
Tibi, Vermouth, Natcho, Zahavi, Yeini, Damari, Ben Haim.
WALES: Hennessey, Gunter, Taylor, Williams, Davies, Cotterill, Ledley, Joe Allen, Ramsey, Gareth Bale, Robson-Kanu.
ANDORRA - BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA
The path of Bosnia till now has been a total failure: 2 points in the first 4 matches.
Bosnia is forced to win tonight scoring a lot if they really want to fight for a place for the final stage.
Andorra has obviously lost the previous 4 matches conceding a total of 17 goals.
Let's give a try betting on 2 HANDICAP (-2) since odds are really interesting: 1.80
ANDORRA: Pol, Lima, Emili Garcia, Rubio, Marc Garcia,
Marcio Vieira, Marc Vales, Ivan Lorenzo, Victor Rodríguez, Riera, Gómez.
BOSNIA: Begovic, Zukanovic, Spahic, Mujdza, Lulic, Pjanic, Besic, Salihovic, Hajrovic, Dzeko, Ibisevic.
BELGIUM - CYPRUS
5 points collected by Belgium till now.
Belgium is stronger than Cyprus, which has a lot of absences: Christofi, Efrem, Alexandrou, Dossa Junior, Vasiliou, Angeli and Giorgallides.
Belgium can't count on Defour and Lukaku but we all know the huge potential of the belgian team, which has loads of talents ready to show their skills.
1+OVER 2.5 and 1+NO GOAL.
BELGIUM: Courtois, Alderweireld, Kompany, Vertonghen,
Lombaerts, Nainggolan, Witsel, Fellaini, De Bruyne, Hazard, Benteke.
CYPRUS: Kissas, Charalambous, Antoniades, Merkis, Mintikkis, Nikolaou, Laban, Laifis, Makridis, Mytides, Kolokoudias.
CROATIA - NORWAY
After losing the opening match against Italy, Norway has then collected 3 wins in a row defeating Azerbaijan, Malta and Bulgaria.
Norway relies on the strenght of its players and a good tactic solidity, but wow they have some lacks in technique.
Norway is now 70th in FIFA ranking.
Croatia is composed of international level players (Rakitic, Modric and Mandzukic above all).
Kovac will dispose his players with an unusual 4-4-2 diamond: Modric as defensive midfielder, Brozovic on the right, Perisic on the left and Rakitic behind Olic and Mandzukic.
1, no doubts.
CROATIA: Subasic, Srna, Corluka, Lovren,
Pranjic, Rakitic, Modric, Perisic, Brozovic, Olic, Mandzukic.
NORWAY: Nyland, Hogli, Forren, Skjelbred, Tettey, Nordtveit, Elabdellaoui, Daehli, Johansen, Elyounoussi, Nielsen.
1 (1.43, 888Sport)
AZERBAIJAN - MALTA
Both teams struggles a lot when it comes to score: 1 goal for Malta in 4 matches, 0 for Azerbaijan.
This is probably going to be an ugly match where both teams will give more importance to the defensive phase than the offensive one.
BULGARIA - ITALY
Italy is sharing the first position in the group H with Croatia.
Italian team is surely stronger than Bulgaria.
Conte will choose his preferred scheme: 3-5-2, putting in the pitch Juventus' defense with Buffon, Chiellini, Barzagli and Bonucci and considering that Bulgaria has Bojinov as forwarder who plays in the Italian Serie B let us think Buffon is not going to concede goals tonight.
Pirlo and Marchisio are unavailable and for that Verratti will be placed in the midfield with Zaza and Immobile as strikers (they are both very fast and skilled players).
It is not going to be a pleasant match but in our opinion Italy will find a goal in the 90', maybe with a good pass of Verratti for Immobile to score avoiding the offside trap?
BULGARIA: Stoyanov, Terziev, Minev, Bodurov,
Bandalovski, Manolev, Tonev, Dyakov, Gadzhev, Popov, Bojinov.
ITALY: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Darmian, Bertolacci, Verratti, Candreva, Antonelli, Immobile, Zaza.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 0-1
KAZAKHSTAN - ICELAND
Iceland has good individualities and it is definitely stronger than Kazakhstan, which is last in the group with 1 point and destined to be eliminated.
KAZAKHSTAN: Pokatilov, Gurman, Abdulin, Logvinenko,
Schetkin, Tagybergen, Smakov, Shomko, Konysbayev, Khizhnichenko, Islamkhan.
ICELAND: Halldorsson, Saevarsson, R. Sigurdsson, Arnason, Skulason, Hallfredsson, G. Sigurdsson, Gunnarsson, B. Bjarnason, Sigthorsson, Finnbogason.

NETHERLANDS - TURKEY
Netherlands appeared to be really on a bad shape at the beginning of these Qualyfiers for Euro 2016, but after beating Latvia with a 6-0, is now eager start collecting points.
Robben and Van Persie are injured but other skilled players are not missing:
Depay, Dost and Klaas Jan Huntelaar are really hot in this period scoring goals after goals.

Indi, Blind, Wijnaldum, Clasie, Sneijder, Afellay, Huntelaar, Depay.
