FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Previews & Tips, Friday 3rd September

BetDeluxe brings you the previews and best bets for selected World Cup 2022 Qualifiers.


Ukraine vs. France

September 5th 4:45am

Reigning World Cup champion France meet Ukraine for a Group D qualifying match on Sunday morning at NSC Olimpiyskiy.

Both nations remain undefeated through their first four qualifiers of the tournament but it is Les Bleus who hold fort atop of Group D with two wins and two draws. 

While there is a clear talent gap between the teams in favour of the French, the travelling team is not exactly going great guns at the moment. 

Didier Deschamp’s men were held to a 1-1 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina and will be without Jules Kounde who was sent off in the 51st minute. 

The Ukrainians are yet to taste victory having played out four draws in their four fixtures to date. 

Ukraine played out a 2-2 draw against lowly ranked Kazakhstan after conceding a 95th minute equaliser.  

The French will surely get a rocket from Deschamps after the display against Bosnia and should be able to collect the three points here. 

Prediction: Ukraine 0 France 1

Suggested Bets:
France head to head at $1.62
Total goals scored under 1.5 at $3.09

Slovakia vs. Croatia

September 5th 4:45am

Croatia looks to hold top spot in Group H when it faces Slovakia on Sunday morning at Tehelne Pole.

The Croatians played out a scoreless draw against Russia on Thursday morning after lacking a killer blow in the final third. 

Slovakia, meanwhile, was also held to a parity courtesy of a 1-1 draw against Slovenia. 

The threat of dropping down to mid-table in the Group is surely a big enough factor to spur Croatia on, but it might very well be the case given the recent form slump of the 2018 World Cup finalist. 

Having lost nine of its last 18 international fixtures, Slovakia will definitely sense an opportunity to strike, especially with the bounce back to form by Robert Bozenik who found the scoresheet in the draw on Thursday.

Tough to split the two nations on current form. 

Draw looks the value here. 

Prediction: Slovakia 1 Croatia 1

Suggested Bet: Draw at $3.4

Switzerland vs. Italy

September 6th 4:45am

Euro 2020 champion Italy looks to continue its record breaking undefeated run when it faces Switzerland in its respective Group C qualifier.

Gli Azzurri were held to a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria in Florence on Thursday morning after Federico Chiesa’s brilliant early goal was cancelled out by Atanas Illiev’s 39th minute strike. 

Roberto Mancini was left frustrated by his forwards inability to finish off their work and now must turn their attention to a Switzerland team who defeated Greece 2-1.
But the Italians, who boast a 35-game unbeaten streak (equalling Spain and Brazil’s all time record) will have fond memories of the 3-0 belting it delivered the Swiss during the Euros. 

Prediction: Switzerland 1 Italy 2

Suggested Bet: Italy head to head at $1.90

Belgium Vs. Czech Republic

September 6th 4:45am

Belgium gets it a chance to pave the path for atonement against Czech Republic after a disappointing Euro 2020. 

Roberto Martinez’s golden era with Belgium is starting to become a desperate plea for trophies and did its chances no harm by belting Estonia 5-2 on Thursday morning in its fourth World Cup Qualifier fixture. 

The Czechs, meanwhile, continued their impressive run of form after downing Belarus 1-0 thanks to a 34th minute strike from Antonin Barak. 

Star Czech striker Patrik Schick is likely to return to the starting line-up after serving a one-game suspension for a red card received back in March. 

His inclusion into the squad might be all that his nation needs to fire a shot against this star-studded Belgian squad.

Prediction: Belgium 1 Czech Republic 1

Suggested Bets:
Draw at $4.75
