European Championship Qualifying Best Bets: Monday, March 27th

The final round of international fixtures kick off today before it is back to domestic duty this weekend.

There are eight European qualifying games Monday which I have cast an eye over to pick out three best bets.

France made light work of Group B rivals the Netherlands in their opener. Now, Les Bleus head to Dublin looking to cement their place at the top of the group.

Montenegro and Serbia both made winning starts, both will be hoping to maintain their 100% records as they duel in Podgorica. And Sweden will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing display against Belgium as they host Azerbaijan.

In this article:

Sweden vs Azerbaijan Preview

Monday, March 27th, 19:45 (UK)

Azerbaijan were thumped 4-1 in the Alps against Austria, and as their price of 21.00 suggests, their European qualifying campaign is not going to get any easier as they head to the Nordics.

Despite a maiden call-up for Rotherham shot-stopper Viktor Johansson and the inclusion of both Ekdal brothers, Albin and Hjalmar, for the first time, Janne Anderssons 26-man squad was overshadowed by one player: Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Blue and Yellow’s all-time leading goalscorer became the oldest player, ever, to play in a Euro qualifier at 41 years old.

Entering the pitch at 2-0 down, he did little to change the complexion of his nation’s opener against Belgium. Sweden eventually lost 3-0, Romelu Lukaku bagged all three.

A questionable character for sure, but Ibrahimovic’s experience could prove invaluable for a group rife with promising youngsters, and his arrogance will surely help them bounce back from a disappointing result on Friday.

Milan’s frontman could get the nod from the off here. A rejig that would see Dejan Kulusevski move to right midfield with Zlatan partnering Alexander Isak upfront.

Sweden vs Azerbaijan Best Bet

Following his breakout season in which Rafael Leao hit 21 goals and assists and scooped up Serie A’s MVP award, Leao said Imbrahimovic’s advice helped him thrive.

Alexander Isak is another player that could reap the rewards of Zlatan’s wisdom.

Isak finished as Sweden’s top goalscorer during their World Cup qualifying campaign, taking his international tally to seven in 31 appearances.

At 2.00 his anytime goalscorer price looks large, especially considering the same bet is 1.40 elsewhere.

  • Selection: Alexander Isak Anytime Goalscorer (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 2.00 (Paddy Power)
  • Stakes: 10/10

Montenegro vs Serbia Preview

Monday, March 27th, 19:45 (UK)

Montenegro’s qualifying campaign got off to the perfect start as they returned from Bulgaria with three points.

Nikola Krstovic’s strike with 20 minutes remaining was enough to secure the win for the Brave Falcons and the magnitude of it cannot be underestimated as Montenegro have never reached the finals of a major tournament.

Miodrag Radulovic will be looking to make successive wins in Group G as his side host Serbia. The supremo only has one injury concern as a substitute, Vladimir Jovovic, was forced off in Razgrad on Friday.

The visitors will also be looking to maintain a 100% record after Dragan Stojkovic’s side beat Lithuania 2-0 on Friday.

Dusan Tadic and Dusan Vlahovic got the goals and both are expected to start here.

The only potential change for the Eagles could be in central midfield with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic pushing for a start.

Montenegro vs Serbia Best Bet

Stefan Savic picked up his 11th card of the season in 26 appearances for club and country on Friday, two of which have been red.

This took his international tally to 14 and made it 117 cards in 479 appearances for club and country.

He was carded in half of his six appearances during World Cup qualification and two of his three appearances in the Nations League.

I think he has every chance of adding another card to his collection here as he opposes Aleksander Mitrovic.

  • Selection: Stefan Savic Card
  • Best Odds: 2.88 (William Hill)
  • Stakes: 5/10

Ireland vs France Preview

Monday, March 27th, 19:45 (UK)

The Republic of Ireland kick-off their European qualifying campaign on Monday evening by welcoming France to Dublin.

Stephen Kenny’s side preparation was hardly ideal. The Boys in Green edged a five-goal thriller against Latvia on Wednesday, against a side ranked 85 places below them, in a game they went off at 1.19 to win.

You really fear for them against Les Bleus, the world’s number three, who comfortably dispatched of the Netherlands on Friday, the world’s sixth-best footballing nation according to FIFA.

Despite some friction, Kylian Mbappe’s captaincy got off to the best possible start with the forward helping himself to two of France’s four goals.

They were favourites, but that victory puts Didier Deschamps’ side in pole position to win Group B, a group that also features Gibraltar and Greece.

Ireland vs France Best Bet

Betfair and Paddy Power are the only bookies to price a John Egan shot, regardless, evens certainly appeals.

In 17 competitive appearances for his nation, the central defender has averaged a shot a game, hitting this line in 70.5% of those appearances and having two or more in just under a quarter of those.

In terms of quality, France are obviously a cut above but Egan has had efforts against Switzerland, Serbia, Finland and Portugal, finding the net with half of his six shots on target to become one of his nation’s main aerial threats.

  • Selection: John Egan 1+ Shot
  • Best Odds: 2.20 (Paddy Power)
  • Stakes: 5/10

Best odds available as at 17:00 on March 26th 2023. Odds may now differ.
