Spain are on the verge of qualifying from their group, having taken a three point lead over Italy last month. That’s put them on the verge of a place in Russia, but the three point gap between them means they’re not completely certain of a place at the World Cup. Can they move one step closer with a victory over Albania this week?

The hosts are obviously heavy favourites to pull off a result, especially given that they come in to this game with an unbeaten home record in World Cup qualifiers. In fact, their last defeat in World Cup qualifying overall came back in the 90s, so it’s difficult to see past the 2010 world champions in this clash.

Albania may have qualified for the Euros last year, but they’ve barely been close to contending for a play-off spot, with Spain and Italy to contend with. However, the visitors have been holding their own in their campaign, losing three games, two of those against Spain and Italy. They were heavily beaten 3-0 by Israel, but the Albanians seem to be able to organise themselves for these big games. They showed that by staying in contention at the Euros last year, finishing third in their group.

The visitors have a solid away record too, with just five defeats on the road in the last four and a half years. Of those losses, four were by a single goal, while they lost 2-0 away to Italy. The Albanians travelled to Portugal, Serbia, Denmark and Armenia in the Euro 2016 qualifiers and kept a clean sheet in every game, so they’re obviously tough to break down. When you consider that Real are without an experienced out and and out striker this week, they’re going to find goals tough to come by.

We think Isco will play a key role in unlocking Albania, especially after his double for Real Madrid last weekend. The playmaker scored three times for Spain in the last international break, while he’s got four goals in just three starts in this campaign. His good form has booked him a place in this side, and we’re backing him to score any time at 1.83 with bet365.

However, we can’t see too many goals for Spain, who are looking light up front for this clash. With Albania seeing under 3.5 goals in their last 17 World Cup qualifiers, and in all of their last 15 competitive defeats, we’re backing Spain to win and under 3.5 goals in this game at 2.1 with bet365.

As things stand, Group I is one the of tightest groups in European qualification, there are two matches left to play and still four teams who could potentially finish top of the pile. Two points behind Croatia before kick-off on match-day nine, Ukraine need to win this match and then go on to win their final match, which is at home to the Croats. Against a Kosovo side who have no hope of making it to Russia, the Ukrainians should be confident of recording a good victory which sees them go into matchday-10 full of confidence.

Much like another of Friday’s Group I matches (Croatia v Finland), this match sees one team come in as massive favourites. Ukraine are priced around the 1/9 mark and are duly expected to hose up. However, not only have the visitors’ performances of late been shaky, but Kosovo have actually begun to acquit themselves better. The bet that stands out ahead of this match is ‘Kosovo to Score Over 0.5 Goals’ at odds of 2.50.

Since earning the right to compete as a nation in their own right, Kosovo have performed better than expected. They are thought of as minnows, and have indeed struggled when it comes to winning games; a point against Finland in their first ever competitive fixtures remains their only point to date. However, their performances in recent times have improved and they’re beginning to enjoy better attacking luck. Against a Ukrainian side who need to have go, the hosts could very easily surprise a few by registering themselves on the score-sheet. After all, goals against both Iceland and Turkey bode well, while their performance, despite being shutout, against Finland in their most recent fixture was also positive.

Not only have Kosovo shown something going forward of late, but Ukraine have begun to show clear deficiencies defensively, especially away from home. Despite playing away from home four times in qualifying, Ukraine are still yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. There’s certainly hope for the Kosovan’s here.

PSG VS ARSENAL

PSG VS ARSENAL PREDICTIONS & BETTING TIPS, MATCH PREVIEWS

Arsenal begin their Champions League campaign with a tough fixture away at PSG on Tuesday. Our free betting predictions suggest that both sides will find the net on Tuesday.
PSG haven’t enjoyed the start to the new season as much as they would have hoped. They got underway in typically dominant fashion as they thrashed Lyon in the French Super Cup and then beat Bastia and Metz in Ligue 1.

However, they suffered an early defeat in Ligue 1 as Monaco stunned them with a 3-1 victory before the international break. Considering their first league defeat last season was in February, this is a very early game for them to lose. They followed this up after the international break with a very poor 1-1 draw at home to Saint-Etienne.

This marks the first time that PSG have failed to win two matches in a row since March 2015, and the first time they’ve failed to win two Ligue 1 matches in a row since September 2014. It seems they are really struggling to adapt to life without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Laurent Blanc, and if they were to fail to win on Tuesday it would be their worst run of results in two years.
Arsenal’s season has panned out the reverse way to PSG’s. They opened the campaign with a thrilling 4-3 defeat at home to Liverpool, which will be a relief considering they were 4-1 down at one point. They followed this with a drab goalless draw at Premier League champions Leicester, but then their season got kick-started.

They beat Watford comfortably and deservedly in a 3-1 scoreline at Vicarage Road, and on Saturday an injury time penalty from Santi Cazorla sealed the three points at home to Southampton.

This is without a doubt the toughest Champions League group match for Arsenal though. A defeat wouldn’t be the end of the world, but a result at the Parc des Princes would set them up nicely to be favourites for the top spot in the group.

PSG’s defence hasn’t looked at it’s best recently, and it’s not surprising considering they lost David Luiz on transfer deadline day and Thiago Silva is out injured. Arsenal have scored in 17 of their last 19 competitive matches as well, so they will feel that they have a real chance of getting on the score-sheet on Tuesday. Six of their last eight away days in the Champions League have seen them concede at least one goal though, and with PSG’s attacking threat, I can’t see the visitors getting a clean sheet either.

This makes odds of 1.75 for Both Teams to Score look a good value bet considering both teams’ start to the season. Arsenal aren’t particularly good at getting results against the top teams in the Champions League though, so I’m going for a 2-1 win for PSG for my correct score prediction.

FINLAND VS KOSOVO

FINLAND VS KOSOVO PREDICTIONS & BETTING TIPS, MATCH PREVIEWS

Kosovo take part in their first ever World Cup Qualification match on Monday when they visit Finland. Our free betting predictions suggest that they could taste success in their first ever competitive match.
Finland are in terrible form at the moment. They failed to qualify for Euro 2016 after picking up 12 points from their ten group games in what was a fairly easy group, but the real issues have come in the friendlies since qualifying ended.

They have lost six of their seven matches since their 1-1 draw against Northern Ireland ended the qualifying stage. Sweden, Iceland, Poland, Norway, Italy, and Germany have all beaten them, and they have scored just one goal in these seven matches.

Things aren’t much better for Finland at home either. They have won just one of their last 11 matches and have lost seven of them. Their singular win came against minnows Faroe Islands, whilst a defeat at home to Estonia marks the lowest point during this period.

Kosovo don’t have much of a history to look back upon. They were brought in as a member of UEFA and FIFA in May this year and this will be their first ever competitive match. They were granted permission to play in friendly matches again as recently as 2014, and since then they have played just eight games.

The most recent of these was in June when they beat Faroe Islands 2-0, a result which made it three games without defeat for Kosovo. The only top team they have faced in their short history ended with a 6-1 defeat to Turkey, although a 2-2 draw against Albania under a year ago is a pretty good result as far as many are concerned.

Kosovo will feel like they have a decent chance in their first ever competitive game. Finland are in shocking form and have failed to beat a number of very small teams at home in recent years. The visitors will be chomping at the bit as well after such a long wait to be recognised by FIFA, so odds of 2.62 for a Kosovo Win or Draw Double Chance look very good value. I don’t think they have enough to get the win though, so I’m going for a 1-1 correct score prediction at 8.5.
