In this post betting tips, previews and starting lineups of Group B EURO2016 qualifiers: Belgium-Bosnia, Cyprus-Wales and Israel-Andorra.
BELGIUM - BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA
Group B has revealed to be very balanced till now. The first place is occupied by Wales with 14 points, Belgium has 11 points and has to protect the second position from Israel and Cyprus (9
points) and Bosnia (8).
The first leg in Bosnia ended 1-1 with goals scored by the Roma's players Dzeko and Nainggolan.
Belgium has lost the last match played vs Wales and now can't show more bad performances in this group stage.
Home team is extremely skilled: the goalie, Courtois, is one of the best in the world, in the midfield there are Nainggolan (Roma), Witsel (zenit) and Fellaini (Manchester UTD), offensive midfielders are Hazard (Chelsea) and De Bruyne (Manchester City), the forwarder is Benteke (Liverpool). Also the reserves are great players: Januzaj, Ferreira Carrasco, Chadli, Mertens and Lukaku above all.
Belgian gamestyle is simple: Nainggolan and Witsel try to give the ball to Hazard and De Bruyne who are both extremely skilled in dribbling and ready to serve winning assists to Benteke/Lukaku and Fellaini (very good with headers).
Bosnian defense hasn't been perfect till now: 2 goals conceded to Cyprus and 3 vs Israel. Bosnia kept a clean sheet only vs Wales and Andorra.
In the first leg, Belgium tried so many shoot attempts (the double compared to Bosnia).
We expect the HOME WIN but also BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE has to be kept on mind since Bosnia has a great offensive potential with Dzeko as striker and with Pjanic who has always scored when playing against Belgium.
BELGIUM: Courtois, Alderweireld, Kompany, Vermaelen, Vertonghen, Fellaini, Witsel, Nainggolan, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku.
BOSNIA: Begovic, Mujdza, Spahic, Sunjic, Kolasinac, Besic, Brancic, Pjanic, Lulic, Visca, Dzeko.
HOME WIN (1.53 Matchbook)
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (2.00 Matchbook)
CYPRUS - WALES
Wales is the first team in the Group B with 14 points. An away win would mean securing the qualification to EURO 2016. First leg ended with a 2-1 for Wales only but after 23 minutes the score was
already on the 2-0 and Wales played the whole second half without King who received a red card.
Cyprus has the second to last worst defense in the group after Andorra with 11 goals conceded. Cyprus can't count on the banned Laban.
Gareth Bale is on a good shape since he scored 2 goals in the last Liga round and usually show great performances when playing with his national team. The reason is easy: with Wales Bale has much more freedom and can take advantage of his pace with ease.
We choose AWAY WIN and BALE TO SCORE ANYTIME.
CYPRUS: Georgallides, Demetriou, Sielis, Dossa, Antoniades, Nikolau, Makrides, Alexandrou, Makris, Mytdis, Sotiriou.
WALES: Hennessey, Gunter, Collins, Davies, Williams, Taylor, King, Ledley, Ramsey, Bale, Robson Kanu.
AWAY WIN (1.83, Sporting Bet)
BALE TO SCORE ANYTIME (2.00, Sporting Bet)
ISRAEL - ANDORRA
After three wins in a row in the first 3 matches, Israel has then collected 3 losses in a row but the chances to get a qualification are still alive.
Andorra is the weakest team of the group and Israel has already beaten it in the first leg with a 4-1.
Andorra has lost all the 46 EURO qualifiers matches. Last Andorra's useful result was in September 2005 (0-0 vs Finland).
Israel can't caount on the banned Yeini and the injured Rafaelov, Gershin and Damari but Zahavi will be in the starting lineups and he is on a great shape since he has been the topscorer of Champions League qualifiers with 7 goals scored and 3 winning assists.
We like the HOME WIN and ZAHAVI to score ANYTIME.
ISRAEL: Marciano, Dgani, Ben Haim I, Tibi, Ben Harush; Vermouth, Natcho, Bitton, Ben Haim II, Zahavi, Hemed.
ANDORRA: Pol; Garcia, Rodrigues, Lima. Rubio; Ayala, Rodriguez, Rebes, Moreno; Martinez; Sanchez.
HOME WIN (1.40, Betfair)
