Nations League Best Bets: Thursday, September, 22nd

Liechtenstein, Latvia and Slovakia – three footballing hubs await us here at bettingexpert with three cherry picked selections that have every chance of landing if lady luck lends a hand. The Nations League may not be everyone’s favourite, especially not Kevin de Bruyne, but it’s certainly one that can be profitable.

In this article:

Liechtenstein vs Andorra Preview

Nations League, Thursday, September 22nd, 19:45 (UK)

In a Nations League group alongside Latvia, Moldova, and Andorra, it looks like it’ll be a slog to the finish line for Liechtenstein. Four teams who don’t exactly boast footballing riches, League D Group 1 has taken shape with the nation wedged in between Djibouti and Seychelles in the FIFA World Rankings, in last place with no points return from four.

It could be another one-sided affair on Thursday as it so often is for Liechtenstein, home or away. In the reverse fixture in Andorra, the hosts hit Liechtenstein for 17 shots to 4. The lack of a clinical edge reared its head as the Andorrans could only find the back of the net twice, though it was enough to claim all three points.

A byproduct of said Andorra pressure was, of course, the number of shots, the 35% of play the ball spent in Liechtenstein’s half compared to 18% in Andorra’s defensive third, and also the eight corners to Liechtenstein’s solitary flag.

The proposed Asian corner handicap not only landed in the last meeting quite comfortably but has also paid out for punters in the last 12 Liechtenstein fixtures. If you include any pushes (finishing one corner ahead for a returned stake), this selection hasn’t lost in 17 games, ever since Gibraltar travelled to Liechtenstein and won 0-1 despite just being dominated for significant periods.

This is by no means a ‘banker’ considering the nations involved, but the stats suggest that the corner line is perhaps a little generous.

  • Selection: Andorra -1 Asian Corner Handicap (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.80 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 15/10

Latvia vs Moldova Preview

Nations League, Thursday, September 22nd, 17:00 (UK)

Sticking with the same group, next up is Group D leaders, Latvia. Unlike Liechtenstein, the Latvians are top of the tree, having four matches out of four. It’s the Moldovans pencilled in for their fifth fixture, one that falls on home soil.

In the reverse match-up in Moldova, Latvia hit the home side for four with two in reply. However, despite the 90 minutes being a reasonably even affair, Latvia proved to be the most clinical of the two in Chisinau, scoring three goals from as many shots on target in the first half after Ian Nicolaescu converted from the spot for Moldova.

From a betting perspective, considering the Latvians are the form side in the group, it’s wise to get them on board. Nevertheless, if you’re going to do that, it makes sense to opt for a result that’s landed in 75% of their Nations League matches and paid out before half time in Moldova, thanks to bet365’s Early Payout.

Latvia to win and over 1.5 goals comes in at 2.20, transforming the 1.61 straight win price into something that really does look worth backing.

  • Selection: Latvia Win and Over 1.5 Goals
  • Best Odds: 2.20 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 10/10

Slovakia vs Azerbaijan Preview

Nations League, Thursday, September 22nd, 19:45 (UK)

Azerbaijan aren’t quite rock bottom of League 3 Group C, with Belarus at the foot of the table, claiming just two draws from four, though they’re not far off. The draw away in Belarus and the win against them at home will likely act as the safety between the two in terms of relegation as Azerbaijan readies themselves for a trip to Slovakia.

The Slovaks don’t exactly brag brilliant form in 2022, losing out to Nations League table-toppers Kazakhstan on two occasions. Regardless, there is an evident step up in class when putting Slovakia, Belarus, and Thursday night opponents, Azerbaijan, side by side.

Although only winning by a lonely goal in both 1-0 matches, the statistics for both are overwhelmingly in Slovakia’s favour. Both Belarus and Azerbaijan recorded just one shot on target against Slovakia despite facing the visitors on familiar soil. Possession totals of 68% versus Belarus and 60% against Azerbaijan highlight the edge that Slovakia held against both.

Slovakia vs Azerbaijan Best Bet

Now, at home, you’d expect that to continue. It’s another proposed selection that paid out in the recent head-to-head and one you’d favour doing so again. Away from home, Slovakia hit six corners in Azerbaijan. In fact, Slovakia have cleared the suggested corner line in every fixture in 2022’s instalment of the Nations League so far: 9, 5, 6 and 8.

Add a Slovakian victory to that, and the 2.10 is another odds-against pick worth consideration.

  • Selection: Slovakia Win and Over 4 Corners (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 2.10 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 5/10
