There are new managers dreaming of leading their birth or adoptive nation to glory in Germany next year.

Three games go under the microscope as that journey to the Olympiastadion, Berlin begins.

Bulgaria vs Montenegro Preview

Friday, March 24th, 17:00 (UK)

Bulgaria changed managers last September, midway through their Nations League campaign. Yasen Petrov quit his post following a 5-2 home mauling at the hands of Georgia. A humiliating draw with Gibraltar followed under the interim leadership of Georgi Ivanov. With the permanent appointment of Mladen Krstajić performances and results have seen a sharp upturn.

The Serbian opened his tenure with a 5-1 thumping of Gibraltar. Followed up with a 1-0 victory over North Macedonia. Ending a four-year wait for an away win in the process and also securing their place in UEFA Nations League C. A defeat of Cyprus and a draw with Luxembourg in two away friendlies kept the positive momentum going ahead of this qualification campaign.

Despite contesting in UEFA Nations League B Montenegro are only two places ahead of their hosts in the FIFA world rankings. Miodrag Radulović has kept his position despite a series of unconvincing results. Although he at least wasn’t in charge for the disastrous Euro 2020 qualifying campaign. Failing to register a win in finishing bottom of their group with just three points. Scoring three goals whilst shipping 22 including a 7-0 drubbing by England. A result which remains their record defeat.

Bulgaria vs Montenegro Best Bet

These sides find themselves drawn in the same group for the second successive Euros qualifying campaign. Bulgaria have certainly improved since those meetings in 2019. Conceding just one goal in four unbeaten internationals under Krstajić.

With the visitors winning just one of their last seven games, the Lions will fancy getting their campaign off to a winning start. Five of their six matches since the departure of Petrov have seen less than three goals with the anomaly being against whipping boys Gibraltar. The Brave Falcons have failed to score in five of their last six away internationals. Goals are not on the agenda in Razgrad.

  • Selection: Bulgaria or Draw double chance and under 3 goals.
  • Best Odds: 2.00 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10

Czech Republic vs Poland Preview

Friday, March 24th, 19:45 (UK)

The Czech Republic failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. With their away form effectively costing them a place in Qatar. Unbeaten on home soil, it was the losses on trips to the two sides that finished above them – Wales and Belgium – that forced them to the play-off. An injury-time defeat in Sweden finally eliminated the Czechs from the competition.

Jaroslav Šilhavý has a proud record to maintain in the Euros. With his nation having reached every European Championship finals since their independence. Making it as far as the quarter final stage in the last tournament.

Poland were in action at the first winter World Cup. Losing to eventual runners-up France in the round of 16. A game which proved to be the last under Czesław Michniewicz. Criticised for his defensive tactics amongst other off-field issues the Polish Football Federation opted to let his contract expire. A familiar face in European football is now tasked with guiding the Poles to Euro 2024. With victories at Euro 2016 and the 2018/19 UEFA Nations League while in charge of Portugal, Fernando Santos will be expected to have no problems qualifying.

Czech Republic vs Poland Best Bet

Both these nations should have no problem qualifying automatically out of Group E as the top two sides. With Moldova, Albania and the Faroe Islands making up the remainder of the section there is less pressure on the head-to-heads between these two favourites.

Despite losing five of their last six internationals, Jaroslav Šilhavý’s side have only tasted defeat in one of their last 13 games on home soil. Scoring inside the opening 15 minutes in three of the last four. In fact, first half goals have been something of a theme. There have been 22 in the last 14 Czech Republic home games. With only two of those goalless at the interval. With the pressure of qualification eased to a certain degree but with both nations looking to get off to a positive start, that run can be extended in Prague.

  • Selection: Over 1 first half goal line (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 2.15 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10

Moldova vs Faroe Islands Preview

Friday, March 24th, 19:45 (UK)

Moldova will hope to revert back to the form they showed in competitive action after two friendly international defeats. The last one of which was a 5-0 thumping by Romania at this same venue in Chişinău. Prior to those losses, Serghei Clescenco’s side ended their Nations League campaign in style. Three successive wins over Andorra, Latvia and Liechtenstein meant they only missed out on promotion by goal difference. With the Czech Republic and Poland to come in this group the 174th-ranked Moldovians know this is a must-win fixture if they have any ambitions to progress to their first major tournament as an independent nation.

Faroe Islands also shipped five goals in a November friendly. The fact the opponents that day were the Czechs does not bode well for their meeting on Monday. Bouncing back from that defeat by recording a 1-1 draw with Kosovo will have at least restored some confidence. Even more so given Håkan Ericson’s side are on an unbeaten run of four competitive internationals. The longest streak in their history. The last in that sequence was a historic 2-1 victory over Turkey in the last game of their Nations League campaign.

Moldova vs Faroe Islands Best Bet

We don’t have to go back too far in history to find the last meeting between these two nations. They were drawn together in Group F of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. A 1-1 draw in Moldova was followed by a 2-1 victory for Landsliðið on home soil. The visitors travel with the rare experience of being ranked some 51 places higher than their opponents. As a result, both sides will want to record the win with tougher challenges lying in wait. Initially, I was drawn toward both teams to score here. Given the recent head to heads and expected desire from both nations to claim three points. However, seeing the Asian goal line set at just 2.0 it is impossible to ignore.

  • Selection: Over 2 goal line (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.975 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10

Odds via bet365 as at 23:00 March 22nd 2023. Odds may now differ.
