Italy vs North Macedonia: Ciro Immobile to Score a Header - 12/1

On Thursday, Italy hosts North Macedonia in Path C of the World Cup qualifiers, with Roberto Mancini’s side needing a victory, or consequently face the humiliation of failing to qualify for back to back World Cups’.

These two sides have only ever met twice, doing so in World Cup qualifiers back in 2016 and 2017, of which the first match resulted in a 3-2 victory for the Azzuri in October 2016, where Ciro Immobile scored in the 75th and 91st minutes to save his side from what would have been an embarrassing defeat.

Immobile’s presence was quintessential to Italy’s success at the start of Euro 2020, as the Lazio forward managed to score two goals and create an assist in his first two matches at the tournament.

So far, the 32-year-old has fired in 176 goals and created 46 assists in 253 matches for his club side, Lazio, and is priced at 12/1 to score a header against North Macedonia on Thursday.

Portugal vs Turkey: Cristiano Ronaldo to Score a Header - 11/2

Alike Italy, Portugal have to beat Turkey if they are to stand a chance of qualifying for the upcoming 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

This will likely be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final World Cup at the age of 37-years-old and the Manchester United man will be determined to inspire his side to the finals having never won this competition in his trophy-laden career.

Ronaldo is the all-time top scorer in international football, having found the back of the net 115 times in 184 appearances, the Portuguese striker will be keen to build on the hat-trick he managed in United’s last Premier League outing against Tottenham Hotspur where his third goal was a towering header to win the match for the Red Devils 3-2.

The Portuguese striker has scored 111 headers across his whole career, hence why Ronaldo is priced at 11/2 to score a header against Turkey.

Sweden vs Czech Republic: Alexander Isak to Score Anytime - 9/5

Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak will be looking to escape from his poor club form when Sweden faces the Czech Republic on Thursday.

The 22-year-old has only managed four goals in 24 La Liga matches, with the former Borussia Dortmund man often showing his true capability in the Europa League, firing in three goals in six matches prior to his side’s exit to RB Leipzig in the competition.

Isak impressed for Sweden at Euro 2020 and has scored eight goals in 31 caps for his national side, including two in his last four outings against the likes of Kosovo and Greece, hence why he is priced at 9/5 to score anytime against the Czech Republic.

Wales vs Austria: Marko Arnautovic and Gareth Bale Both to Score in 90mins - 10/1

The final tip on this list comes from Wales against Austria on Thursday with two key players being involved.

Gareth Bale is arguably Wales’ best player, hence why the Real Madrid winger has scored 36 goals in 100 international matches. The 32-year-old has played just 270 minutes worth of football for Real this season and will be desperate to put himself in the shop window this summer with his contract set to expire.

On the other hand, Marko Arnautovic also has a good record at international level for Austria, as the former Stoke City and Inter Milan forward has found the back of the net 32 times in 96 caps.

So far this campaign, the 32-year-old has scored nine goals and created one assist in 26 matches for Bologna in Serie A.
