Nations League Tips: 14th & 15th November

Author: Published: November 13, 2020

Nations League Football TipsWe made a profit last weekend once again racking up another £27.10 in profit to add to the others we have landed over the last few weeks.

This week we are back with the games that started my great run of form a few weeks ago in the Nations League.

We have one set of games taking place across Saturday and Sunday and then this is followed by another set of games on Tuesday and Wednesday next week (which we will of course have tips for).

There are a number of cracking games to look forward to, not least Belgium vs England who are looking to get back to winning ways after their demoralising defeat to Denmark at Wembley in the last set of games.

Other big games see France and Portugal renew hostilities after a rather drab 0-0 draw in Paris and with France needing to pick up a positive result here, I do feel that game should be much better. Other big games see Germany facing the Ukraine, Spain travelling to Switzerland and Wales will face off against the Republic of Ireland.

I’ve been pretty hot with my tips for you over the last few weeks, let’s hope that run continues here with this set of four from the games at the weekend.

Nations League Football Tips: Saturday 14th November

Portugal VS France
14/11/2020 7:45 pm GMT

Key Stats

Last month these two teams shared a dour 0-0 draw in Paris.
The teams both have 10 points in Group 3, but Portugal are top by goal difference.
Portugal’s final game is away to Croatia, France’s at home to Sweden.
Portugal have won 3 of the last 19 against France, losing 15 and drawing just once.

Analysis

I have to say that last month’s game between these two teams was a very boring encounter to say the least. Both sides seemed more intent on not losing the game rather than winning it and with Portugal not being the most offensive minded side anyway, we ended up with a stale, lukewarm encounter that ended 0-0.

However, I think in Lisbon things may be different. France will know that trailing Portugal on goal difference by four goals, they are likely to need something from this game, at least a point, if not a win. That said they face a Portugal side that has been pretty tight defensively over the last few years.

Cristiano Ronaldo will of course be the focal point of the attack for Portugal, assuming he is fit to start and as such, I can see him causing France a few problems and maybe even grabbing a goal, but likewise I think the French have enough quality to put one into the Portuguese net too.

There was little between the teams in their last encounter last month and I think that will be the same story here, so I am backing the draw and taking the flexibility of a match result prediction rather than backing both teams to score.

Sweden VS Croatia
14/11/2020 7:45 pm GMT

Key Stats

These two teams met last month with Croatia winning 2-1 in Zagreb.
Croatia are third in Group 3 behind France and Portugal with just 3 points
Sweden are winless and pointless in this group so far.
Croatia have won four of their five games against Sweden, losing just the one.

Analysis

It has been a dismal Nations League campaign for Sweden so far as they have lost all four of the games that they have played so far and lie bottom of League A Group 3, three points behind Croatia and 10 behind France and Portugal at the top of the table.

There is a sense that this Swedish team is now reaching the end of its current cycle and the evidence suggests that the players coming through are not quite yet at the level of some of the Swedish teams of the past and that will be a concern for both their manager and Sweden’s loyal fans.

Croatia beat the Swedes 2-1 in Zagreb last month, needing a late Kramaric goal to snatch the win but I feel they are a much better side on the counter attack than forcing the game and I think in Sweden some of their attackers may be better suited to hitting on the break.

As such, I predict yet more misery for the Swedes here. I do think the home team will score a goal, but I think Croatia will grab at least two and maybe even three on the break to snatch the victory.

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 15th November

Wales VS Rep Ireland
15/11/2020 5:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Wales are top of League B Group 4 with 10 points, one ahead of Finland.
Ireland are well off the pace having picked up just two points from their four games.
Wales only draw in the group stage came in a 0-0 draw in Dublin against Ireland.
The last 6 games between the teams has seen just 7 goals scored, 5 of those in 1 game.

Analysis

Wales are looking good to win their group having already beaten second placed Finland away from home in their opening game of the competition, but they cannot afford to slip up here against a Republic of Ireland side that have struggled for goals of late.

The Irish have managed just five goals in their last 11 games, three of those coming in a friendly against New Zealand last November, and they have managed to score just one goal in the whole of 2020 so far and that came in injury time away to Bulgaria to rescue a point.

Waes have won all three of their games by the same 1-0 scoreline and are yet to concede a goal in the group stage and I think that record will continue here as I cannot see this being a game which sees goals flowing at both ends of the pitch.

Gareth Bale’s return will be a huge boost to the home side and I think one bit of magic from the on loan Tottenham man, or an assist from Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey, could be enough to turn this game in the home side’s favour.

As such, I am backing Wales to win, and as they have tended to do in this competition, I think that it will be by a 1-0 scoreline.

Prediction

Wales to win to nil - £10 returns £30.00

Belgium VS England
15/11/2020 7:45 pm GMT

Key Stats

Belgium are top of Group 2 by two points over Denmark.
England are third on the same number of points as the Danes.
England were 2-1 victors when the teams met back in October.
Belgium have won two of the last three between the teams since 2018.

Analysis

Belgium’s last two wins over England have both come in the World Cup of 2018 when they beat England in the Group Stages when both had already qualified for the next phase and then they also beat England in the third-placed playoff too.

In truth, they should have been well in front before England came back to win at Wembley last month and I feel that on home soil, the Belgians will be feeling very confident that they can continue their pretty decent form against England.

England’s grip on this group was loosened by that 1-0 defeat to Denmark last time out that saw them drop from top of the group to third. They badly need at least a draw here, if not a win, to stand any chance of winning the group, but that is a tall order in a place where their last win was in 1970.

I think Belgium will know they should have won at Wembley and I don’t think they will fluff quite as many chances. England I feel can score here, but I think the Belgians will win the game likely by a 2-1 scoreline.
