Poland v Italy, Sunday 14th October, 19:45

These two drew in Bologna just over a month ago and with Portugal since inflicting defeats on both of them, this fixture now has added importance as it’s effectively a straight fight to avoid relegation into League B.

The Italians may be forced to take the game to their opponents more than they’re used to as they currently trail on goal difference, and that should lead to an entertaining clash with Poland possessing several Italian-based players at the sharp end of their squad.

The visitors won’t need any introduction to Napoli duo Piotr Zielinski and Arkadiusz Milik, with Robert Lewandowski of course remaining the key threat, while Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek opened his international account on Thursday and has 13 goals in just eight matches domestically so far this season.

Both teams have scored in six of Poland’s last nine overall, including four of five at home, while four of those five home games also saw a minimum of four strikes. Meanwhile, six of Italy’s last seven matches have also seen both teams register on the scoreboard, with over half of these games finishing 1-1.

Italy will be looking to the likes of Mario Balotelli to find success in the game.

Both teams to score at 1.95*

Russia v Turkey, Sunday 14th October, 17:00

Only a phenomenal, world-class save by Sweden’s Robin Olsen prevented our Thursday treble from landing, with Russia left ruing a lack of chances created as they failed to make their dominance in possession pay.

Sweden are however a defensive outfit and Turkey will afford their attack greater opportunities, while they’ll also pose questions at the other end of the pitch with the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Cengiz Under and Cenk Tosun in their ranks.

The Turks had their own goalless stalemate this week against Bosnia-Herzegovina, but both sides had found the net in each of their previous six outings as all but one of these saw at least three goals and half saw a minimum of four.

Prior to facing Sweden, Russia had seen both teams find the net in each of their last four, including a 2-1 victory in the reverse of this fixture and a 5-1 thrashing of the Czech Republic in September.

Will Russia get a win?

Both teams to score at 2.00*

Romania v Serbia, Sunday 14th October, 14:00

Romania have made a reasonably solid start to their UEFA Nations League campaign, beating Lithuania on the road and securing stalemates with both Montenegro and Serbia.

It extends a good run of form and they’ve now won five of seven unbeaten games in 2018, though their opponents here do lead Group C4 as was expected of them.

Serbia registered 1-0 and 2-0 victories over Lithuania and Montenegro in their last two road trips, leaving them with five wins from their last seven on their travels as they’ve kept a clean sheet on four occasions.

However, given the host’s current form, we’re not expecting another shut out and indeed these two played out a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture. With little to split them, a repeat stalemate appears the most likely outcome.

Will Serbia take control of their group?

Draw at 3.2o*
