In this post, tips and previews of the Euro 2016 qualifying stage matches scheduled on Sunday 14 June.
LICHTENSTEIN - MOLDOVA
In the end of March Moldova played a good match against Sweden. They lost 0-2 because of a huge mistake of the goalie Cebanu which caused the first goal, but we noticed a good tactical organization showed by moldovan players.
In this match vs Lichtenstein, which can't count on its best defender Ivan Quintans due to an injury, we expect to see another good moldovan performance.
Moldova double chance seems to be the best solution.
LIECHTENSTEIN: Jehle, Salanovic, Frick, Kaufmann, Oehri, Polverino, Christen, Buchel, Gubser, Burgmeier, Hasler.
MOLDOVA: Cebanu, Jardan, Epureanu, Armas, Racu, Gatcan, Cojocari, Bolohan, Carp, Dedov, Boghiu.
MOLDOVA DOUBLE CHANCE (1.33, Sporting Bet)
RUSSIA - AUSTRIA
Austria is leading the group G but it is not going to be easy to get out Russia with a good result.
Alaba is still missing and without him Austria loses a lot in terms of pace.
Russia has showed a good performance in the last friendly won against Belarus and we expect to see another win against Austria on Sunday.
RUSSIA: Akinfeev, Smolnikov, V. Berezoutski, Ignatshevich, Zhirkov, Glushakov, Shatov, Dzagoev, Shirokov, Kombarov, Kokorin.
AUSTRIA: Almer, Klein, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Fuchs, Harnik, Baumgartlinger, Ilsanker, Arnautovic, Junuzovic, Janko.
HOME WIN (1.95, 10Bet)
SWEDEN - MONTENEGRO
Montenegro has few chances to reach the qualification for Euro 2016: after having collected 5 points in the first 4 matches, they have lost by forfeit after the clash between supporters in the
game against Russia.
Considering that Montenegro will play without Mirko Vucinic and Stevan Jovetic, we choose Sweden to win.
SWEDEN: Isaksson, Bengtsson, Nilsson, Johansson, Olsson, Larsson, Kallstrom, Ekdal, Zengin, Ibrahimovic, Kiese Thelin.
MONTENEGRO: Poleksic, Simic, Basa, Savic, Balic, Marusic, Kascelan, Vukcevic, Nikolic, Damjanovic, Beciraj.
HOME WIN (1.50, PaddyPower)
SLOVENIA - ENGLAND
After the elimination from World Cup in Brasil occurred in the group stage, England has then collected a series of good results.
England occupies the first position in its EURO 2016 qualification group 6 points above the second team.
The problem for english team could be the lack of motivations since holidays are very close and considering also the 6 points gap from Switzerland, we would not be surprised in case of a mediocre performance against Slovenia.
Slovenia is very tough to face when playing home (Switzerland knows something about it).
England has conceded only 1 goal in this group stage (it happened in the first leg against Slovenia).
Considering that home team will probably stay on the defensive we do not expect a lot of goals here.
UNDER 2.5 and England double chance seem to be the best choices.
SLOVENIA: Handanovic; Brecko, Cesar, Ilic, Jokic; Mertelj, Rotman; Ilicic, Kampi, Birsa; Novakovic.
ENGLAND: Hart, Clyne, Smalling, Cahill, Bertrand, Milner, Henderson, Delph, Walcott, Rooney, Sterling.
ENGLAND DOUBLE CHANCE (1.20, PaddyPower)
UNDER 2.5 (1.65, PaddyPower)
LITHUANIA - SWITZERLAND
Switzerland hasn't had a good trend in the first part of this group stage and has not secured the 2nd place yet.
A win in Slovenia is extremely important for swiss team.
Switzerland has scored a lot in the last appearances(11 goals in the previous 3 group stage matches and 3 more goals in the last friendly against Liechtenstein).
Lithuania is not living a great period: 0 goals scored in the last six matches and after the recent losses against Hungary and Malta it doesn't seem able to make a good result vs Switzerland.
LITHUANIA: Gertmonas, Klimavicius, Freidgeimas, Cesnaukis, Vaitkunas, Mikoliunas, Luksa, Slivka, Panka, Kuklys,Matulevicius.
SWITZERLAND: Sommer, Lichtsteiner, Djourou, Von Bergen, Rodriguez, Shaqiri, Xhaka, Inler, Dzemaili, Mehmedi, Drmic.
AWAY WIN (1.38, PaddyPower)

BELARUS - SPAIN
Del Bosque should adopt a 4-3-3 with Casillas as goalkeeper, Piquè and Sergio Ramos as central backs, Jordi Alba and Juannfran as lateral backs.
In the midfield Busquets and Koke with Fabregas and Isco a bit more advanced. The forwarders will be David Silva and Morata.
The young striker of Juventus has showed a great shape in the last two months and we expect to see him score tomorrow.
Belarus will be without Gordeychuk, Balanovich and Verkhostov all injured.
In the last friendly Belarus lost 4-2 in Russia but played really good in the middle phase of the match.
In any case we expect the away win since the technical gap is quite wide.
BELARUS: Chernik; Shitov, Martynovich, Filipenko, Bordachev; Hleb, Kislyak, Dragun; Krivets, Putsilla; Kornilenko.
SPAIN: Casillas; Jordi Alba, Ramos, Piqué, Juanfran; Busquets, Koke, Fàbregas; Silva, Isco, Morata.
AWAY WIN (1.30, Matchbook)
