5 International Friendlies Tips to Watch This Week - November International Break Odds

Norway v Israel - Norway -1 Goal Difference

Norway should be very confident approaching this fixture after to their incredible goalscoring capabilities in the Nations League where they have registered 11 goals in four games whilst conceding three.

Many of these goals can be put down to Borussia Dortmund’s prolific striker, Erling Haaland, who is the top goalscorer in the competition with six goals. Approaching this fixture, Israel should be the more nervous side due to their form of one win in their last seven games played.

Although, in their last match against Slovakia, Willibald Ruttensteiner’s side did earn their first victory via a 3-2 scoreline. This was helped majorly by Eran Zahavi who netted a hat-trick that game which made him the second-highest goalscorer behind Haaland. However, his efforts have not helped the Israel side, who are currently on a zero goal difference.

Both sides have strong scoring talent, but it can be viewed that Norway are stronger defensively and, therefore, they should take home the three points. Although, there is a possibility that many key players such as Haaland, could be rested for the friendlies to focus on the upcoming Nations League fixtures.

Currently, Norway to win with a handicap of -1 is priced at odds of 11/8.

Germany v Czech Republic - Germany and Over 3.5 Goals in match

Ahead of this fixture, Germany looks the far stronger side as they compete in League A of the Nations League, unlike Czech Republic who compete in League B. On top of this, Joachim Low’s side are in great scoring form with 10 goals scored in their last five matches with two fixtures seeing over 3.5 goals in a match.

However, only once in their last five games have they won, as they draw the other four fixtures. The Czech Republic team, on the other hand, are in better winning form with three wins in their last five matches played as they were twice defeated by Scotland.

They have netted eight in their last five games but drew a blank in their last fixture. Both sides have goalscoring potential, however, this game all depends on how Low’s side lineups. With many of his star players like Joshua Kimmich, Kai Havertz and Julian Draxler all pulling out the squad, there could be more unpredictable changes in the lineup.

However, Low still has an incredible trio of Timo Werner, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane available for this fixture who all can provide goals as shown at club level. As of now, odds of Germany to win and over 3.5 goals in the match are priced at 6/4.

Belgium v Switzerland - Belgium and Under 3.5 Goals in match

So far in the Nations League A, Belgium have been very strong as they have netted the most goals in the competition with 10 with Portugal one behind on nine. They currently sit top of Group Two with nine points and have only lost one match which was to England.

Despite their strength, in their last friendly, they fielded a weaker line-up and drew 1-1 with the Ivory Coast and more than likely, a similar lineup should occur as to rest the stronger players.

Switzerland, on the other hand, are in really poor form as they have not won in their last five games and have lost three times. As of now, they are bottom of Group Four on two points after four games played and look to be relegated for League A.

In their last friendly, Vladimir Petkovic’s men lost to World Cup finalists Croatia, 2-1 with Mario Gavranovic netting their only goal. With this match providing no importance, there is more likely going to be a lot of changes to each others' lineups, as they rest for the Nations League later this week.

Therefore, the top goalscoring players may not feature in the side. Currently, odds of Belgium to win and under 3.5 goals in the match is priced at 5/4.

Lithuania v Faroe Islands Tips

1-1, 2-2 OR 3-3 DRAW @ 7/2

Denmark v Sweden - Denmark and Under 4.5 Goals in match

In their last friendly against Faroe Islands, Denmark played a seemingly strong squad with a few weaker changes in the lineup. They were victorious in this fixture as they won 4-0 with goals from Christian Eriksen, Andreas Cornelius, Andreas Olsen and Joakim Maehle.

Winning has been a strong part of Roberto Martinez’s side, who have won the last three games and are in great form to continue this run. Sweden have not been in good form recently, as they have lost four of their last five games in all competitions. Although, their last victory occurred against Russia in a friendly that took place last month.

Now, with four losses in the Nations League, they are one of two sides to not have registered a point so far. None of the last five games for each side have ended with more than 4.5 goals scored in a match proving that this scenario is unlikely to occur. However, with this being a Scandinavian rivalry, more importance could be played on this fixture with both sides eager to win.

Currently, odds of Denmark beating Sweden and there being under 4.5 goals in the match is now priced at 11/8.

Netherlands v Spain - 1-1, 2-2 or 3-3 Draw

The Netherlands squad, come into this fixture in worrying form after a winless streak of four games with three of these matches coming under new manager Frank de Boer. In their last five matches in all competitions, the Dutch side has netted only two goals whilst conceding three.

Two of their most recent fixtures have both been draws. On the other hand, Spain are in better form as they have won two in their last five matches with one loss coming in their last match against Ukraine. Against two strong sides of Portugal and Germany, they have drawn these fixtures.

In this upcoming fixture, both sides have been hit hard by injuries. De Boer’s men have lost world-class centre-back Virgil van Dijk as well as star goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, both extremely crucial to the Netherlands team. Luis Enrique has lost wonderkid Ansu Fati as well as striker Rodrigo Moreno, which has left their strikeforce vulnerable. With both sides losing key players as well as being in poor scoring form, this side may feature less experienced players who might struggle to find the net.

Therefore, odds of a 1-1, 2-2, or 3-3 draw in the fixture between Spain and the Netherlands are now priced at 3/1.
