Montenegro vs. Bulgaria
Montenegro dominated Bulgaria away from home earlier this campaign. They created over 1.50 expected goals and restricted the hosts to just 0.60 with two shots on goal. The hosts are winless in four games, but this provides an excellent bounce-back spot.
Finland vs. Denmark
Denmark have been poor travellers historically. They beat France 2-1 in 2022 but were very lucky if you look at the expected goal metrics. They've had losses to Australia, Scotland and Kazakhstan most recently. The Fins have won their last four straight without conceding a goal, so backing them to avoid defeat makes sense here.
Lithuania vs. Serbia
Serbia are great going forward but struggle defensively. They've scored 15 goals over their last eight matches but have conceded 11. They've conceded against Jordan and Bulgaria before their defeat to Hungary. Lithuania have found the back of the net in three of their last four.
Republic of Ireland vs. Netherlands
The Netherlands beat Greece 3-0 last time out. They took eventual World Cup winners Argentina to penalties during the summer. They have had some impressive results recently, including beating Belgium twice. Republic of Ireland have lost to Greece, Norway and Scotland over their last ten games.
