The UEFA Nations League continues Friday with some more acca value from our Fansbet traders. In the preview below the trading team have gone for the World Champions France to keep their unbeaten run going with a win away to the Netherlands, Armenia to get the away win over Gibraltar in League D4 and for Norway to make it four wins from five in League C3 against Slovenia. That is three away wins at a price of 8.00 and with a maximum bet of £50!
Netherlands v France
The Dutch have been steadily improving under Ronald Koeman and even beat Germany 3-0 in their last UEFA Nations League fixture, though Die Mannschaft are in the midst of some rotten form and two goals in the final five minutes added an unfair gloss to the scoreline. Meanwhile, Les Bleus are now unbeaten in 15 matches as they’ve netted at least twice in 10 of these games, despite having faced quite a bit of footballing royalty in this time. They’ve played Germany (twice), Italy, Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium, Croatia and the Netherlands – winning seven out of eight across those clashes.
Indeed, the Netherlands have trailed at both half-time and full-time in each of their last five matches against France by an aggregate scoreline of 12-3, with the oldest of these games only going back to March 2014 as they faced each other during World Cup qualification. They need a pair of victories over both France and Germany in their final two games to go through to the tournament showpiece next summer, but though they’ve looked more attractive going forwards – especially in their 3-0 win over Portugal back in March – they should be picked off by France’s lightening speedsters on the counter.

Gibraltar v Armenia
Following a streak of 23 defeats from 24 winless games, Gibraltar have suddenly hit form in 2018 with three wins from five outings. These came over Latvia, Liechtenstein and Armenia themselves, though they’ve still lost to both Macedonia and Liechtenstein as well. That victory in Armenia was their first ever on the road, though their opponents reacted to that humiliation with a 4-0 battering of Macedonia in the next game as they took out their frustrations.
Armenia haven’t won an away game in five years, but they’ve played little in the way of teams comparable to Gibraltar and have only lost by narrow one-goal margins in Denmark, Portugal and Poland during this time. Both teams realistically need the three points to stand a chance of promotion into League C and so we can expect both teams to show some endeavour in the final third. That should favour the visitors with Gibraltar the lowest scorers in Group D4, while the hosts have failed to score in 11 of their last 15 games in front of their own fans including a 6-0 defeat to Estonia last October.

Slovenia v Norway
Norway lead Group C3 with three wins from four games, only suffering defeat on the road at Bulgaria, who share an almost identical record at this stage with nine points on the board. They did however win the reverse of that fixture by the same 1-0 scoreline, meaning goal difference against the rest of the group could well decide the final standings, which at the moment is wafer thin in the Norwegians’ favour.
That defeat in Bulgaria is actually the only blip Lars Lagerback’s side have endured this calendar year as they’ve won their other seven fixtures, winning to nil in four of their last five. Meanwhile, Slovenia are just W1-D2-L6 since last October, while they’re yet to win a home game from their three attempts this year, losing to both Belarus and Bulgaria. Given Norway’s current form, it’s hard to see past the away win. Indeed, they can also point to the record of four victories from five head-to-head encounters since 2004.
