World Cup Qualification Previews & Predictions

There could be a big night ahead of England on Thursday as they can book themselves spot at the 2018 World Cup with a game to spare. That is probably what will happen to them, but they will face a side who will be arriving at Wembley with plenty of motivation behind them. Slovenia are in the tight scrap with Slovakia and Scotland for the second spot in the group and will try and grab at least what could be a precious point out of this tough away fixture.

England 3/10, Draw 4/1, Slovenia 10/1

England vs Slovenia Betting Tips

England will probably book their automatic qualification spot at the World Cup on Thursday night as they play host to Slovenia in Group F. The Three Lions have taken twenty points from their eight games in the group so far with a W6 D2 record having been posted. That leaves then them with a five point lead over second-placed Slovakia ahead of the next round of matches. So a point would do them if Scotland stops from Slovakia from winning on the same night. England are four wins from four at home in the group, collecting a clean sheet in three of those. England to win to nil at bet365 returns a price of 5/6 which on the face of things isn’t a bad option really. The two nations played out a 0-0 draw when they met earlier in the group. England holds a W4 D1 record from five previous games against Slovenia.

Dele Alli is serving a one match international ban, so he misses this one. His Spurs team mate Harry Kane is the 5/2 bet365 first goalscorer favourite for this one while he is a price of 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market. You don’t look at the Three Lions and see a clinical, ruthless side at all there and in the group, they have only averaged two goals per game, which isn’t great at all considering the level of opposition they have faced. They just look pretty average with a lack of creativity. An England 1-0 correct score and a 2-0 win are joint favourite options at 9/2 in the bet365 correct score market for this one. This will probably end up being a low scoring affair, with the Three Lions just doing enough to get the three points. Plus, both teams have scored in only two of Slovenia’s last fifteen games.

So under 2.5 goals should be the way to swing for this fixture and that is a price of 9/10 with bet365. Slovenia should be motivated for this because a win really puts them in strong contention to land second place in the group. A point may just about keep them there, depending on what happens between Scotland and Slovakia on the same night. It’s hard to see them turning up and being an attacking force though, it’s more likely that they will be defensive. Away from home in the group they have already lost at Slovakia and Scotland, drawn in Lithuania and took a narrow 1-0 win in Malta. They don’t offer a great deal going forward and both away defeats for them were by a 1-0 scoreline in the group. The motivation may well be there, but the quality? Not so much.
