In this post betting tips, previews and starting lineups of Group H EURO2016 qualifiers: Azerbaijan-Italy, Croatia-Bulgaria and Norway-Malta.
AZERBAIJAN - ITALY
Italy is vry close to reach the qualification. Two draws in the next two matches should be enough.
It will not be easy vs Azerbaijan. Indeed, after Prosinecki become the coach, Azerbaijan has obtained 4 useful results in a row.
Home team will adopt a defensive 4-5-1 and the defense has appeared to be quite solid in the last games and considering that Italy has never scored more than two goals in a match during the group stage, we do not expect a lot of goals here.
AZERBAIJAN: Agayev, Garayev, Mirzabekov, Hüseynov, Sadygov, Dashdemirov, Nazarov, Amirguliyev, Ismayilov, Kurbanov, R. Gurbanov.
ITALY: Buffon, Darmian, Bonucci, Chiellini, De Sciglio, Pirlo, Florenzi, Parolo, Candreva, Eder, Pellè.
ITALY DOUBLE CHANCE + UNDER 3.5 (1.27 Matchbook)
UNDER 2.5 (1.57 Matchbook)
CROATIA - BULGARIA
1 Point collected in the last two matches vs Azerbaijan and Norway and the penalization point given after the match vs Italy because of the swastika drawed on the field and now the croatian
qualification is uncertain.
Croatia has changed coach: Cacic has taken place of Kovac.
Home probably has the best team of the Group H while Bulgaria is quite weak and the coach has already started to try new young players for the future since qualification chances are gone.
Considering the lack of motivation among bulgarian players and considering the big skills gap between these teams, we choose HOME WIN and HOME WIN HANDICAP (-1.0).
CROATIA: Subašić, Srna, Ćorluka, Lovren, Vrsaljko, Badelj, Perišić, Rakitić, Modrić, Kovačić, Kalinić.
BULGARIA: Mitrev, Z. Milanov, Terziev, A. Aleksandrov, Bodurov, Tonev, G. Milanov, Chochev, Milanov, Rangelov, Hristov.
HOME WIN (1.30, 888Sport)
HOME WIN HANDICAP (-1.0) (1.90, 888Sport)
NORWAY - MALTA
Norway, thanks to the 7 points collected in the last 3 matches, now occupies the 2nd place and in sight of the last match in Italy on next week, this home match vs Malta must be won.
Norway is a team that relies on its physical strenght and the aerial skills of its players but lacks in technique and generally speaking Norway struggles in creating goals attempts vs teams that mainly stay on the defensive such as Malta.
NORWAY: Nyland, Elabdellaoui, Nordtveit, Forren, Linnes, Samuelsen, Tettey, Skjelbred, Henriksen, Berget, Soderlund.
MALTA: Hogg, Failla, Camilleri, Borg, Agius, Muscat A., Muscat R., Briffa, Schembri, Mifsud, Effiong.
HOME WIN + UNDER 4.5 (1.39, Betfair)
NORWAY DOUBLE CHANCE + UNDER 3.5 (1.56, Betfair)
