Despite the international break this weekend, there are still a lot of BTTS options. Betting on national teams is always tricky, no matter what the odds are. We are always trying to find the best betting options for you, so let’s get it started:
|7th September||England vs Bulgaria
|7th September||France vs Albania||NO|
|7th September||Atlético Junior vs Unión Magdalena||NO|
England vs Bulgaria – EURO 2020 Qualification
England will face Bulgaria in EURO 2020 Qualification Group A match. The Three Lions were expected to top the group after the last match and so far, they are meeting the expectations. With just 2 matches played so far, they already have 6 points and managed to find the net 10 times, while conceding just once.
Against Bulgaria, the stats are speaking – England failed to concede a goal in the last 3 encounters between these two sides. In 2010 the Bulgarians were heavily defeated by 4-0 at Wembley, while in 2011 they were beaten by 3-0 in Sofia. England’s squad is one of the youngest and most promising across all of Europe, with plenty of players ready to fight for their starting XI place.
The national team of Bulgaria seems like already have lost their chances even for the second place in this group. The Lions managed to collect just 2 points after their first 4 matches in this group, and they haven’t faced England yet. So far, Bulgaria met Montenegro, Czech Republic, and Kosovo twice.
Krasimir Balakov’s men won a point at home against Montenegro and Kosovo away, but they were beaten by the Czechs in Prague and Kosovo at home. The Bulgarian side is very vulnerable at the back, as they conceded 7 goals so far. Upfront, there aren’t many players that could surprise the England defenders, so we expect a clean sheet for the Three Lions.
Prediction – BTTS: NO
France vs Albania – EURO 2020 Qualification
The current World champions from France will have an easy game against Armenia on Saturday, at least on paper. The match is from Group H and the French side is holding the 1st place in the group with 9 points – just as many as the second-placed team of Turkey.
Didier Deschamps’s men were surprisingly beaten by the Turkish side in June, so now the 3 points are mandatory for them. Apart from that defeat, France are doing very well. They conceded just once in the rest of the matches they played so far and scored 12 times. Aymeric Laporte and Paul Pogla are sidelined due to injuries, but Didier Deschamps has plenty of options to replace them.
Albania are having quite decent qualifications so far. They won 6 points from 4 matches so far, as they lost against the so-called favourites Turkey and Iceland. However, against the weaker sides as Andorra and Moldova, the Albanian side achieved 2 victories with 2 clean sheets and 5 goals scored in total.
An interesting fact is that Albania has a win over France and it wasn’t so long ago. Actually, in 2015 Albania beat France with 1-0 in a friendly match at home. A lot of time has passed and a lot of things were changed since then. But at the end of the day, we expect France to win the match comfortably and to secure their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris an easy afternoon.
Prediction – BTTS: NO
Atlético Junior vs Unión Magdalena – Colombia – Primera A – Clausura
|Atlético Junior||vs||Unión Magdalena|
|0%||0%||Scored in both halves||0%||0%|
|0%||0%||Both teams scored||44%||25%|
|50%||67%||Failed to score||44%||75%|
|0%||11%||Conceded in both halves||44%||75%|
Atlético Junior are sitting 13th in the Colombian Clausura with 11 points since the start of the season. But the most worrying thing for their fans are their struggles in front of the opposition’s net. For 9 matches, Atlético found the net just 3 times.
They managed to win in all of the three occasions they were able to score. Two of these matches were in front of their own fans. In the rest 6 matches, they lost 4 and drew 2. In fact, Atlético Junior have the worst attacking record in the whole Clausura. Only the last-standing team Santa Fe scored the same amount of goals so far this campaign.
Unión Magdalena are finding themselves 3 spots below Atlético. Since the 20th of July, they are not performing very well at all. They actually managed to win only 2 matches since, both of them at home. They lost 4 matches for the mentioned period and made 2 draws. However, they are performing slightly better when we are talking about offensive actions.
Unión Magdalena managed to score 7 times in the first 9 matches since the start of the season, and concede 13. Their away record is very bad – they have lost their last 4 matches away from home and in 56% of their total encounter, they were losing at half-time. On Saturday we think both teams struggles in front of the goal will continue and we will not witness goals in both of the nets.
Prediction – BTTS: NO
Happy Betting 🙂
