Czech Republic vs Belgium - Lukaku and De Bruyne to score

The Czech Republic and Belgium face off on Saturday, with both teams making an impressive start to the qualifying game against Estonia and Wales, respectively. If anything can be taken from the first round of fixtures, it is that this one has the potential to produce a hatful of goals, with the two games combined providing 12 in total.
Belgium go into the match as firm favourites priced at 4/6, but with the attacking muscle Roberto Martinez has at his disposal, the goalscorer markets are where the value is.

Romelu Lukaku is Belgium's all-time scorer with an incredible 57 goals in 89 caps. Simarlrliy, Kevin De Bruyne is just as important to the Red Devils as Lukaku, and both scored in the midweek win against. Therefore, we are backing them both to do so again at a price of 6/1

Norway v Turkey - Haaland to bag a brace


Both Norway and Turkey opened up their World Cup qualifying campaign up with a comfortable win. Norway beat minnows Gibraltar 3-0 with ease, and Turkey put in an impressive performance against the Netherlands in a 4-2 victory, which sets up for an intriguing clash this Saturday evening kick-off. 

Despite Norway possessing quality in many areas across the pitch, ultimately, the one that stands out is Borussia Dortmund frontman Erling Haaland who is arguably the most sort after centre-forward in Europe at the moment.

After firing an unexpected blank against Gibraltar during the week, the prolific 20-year-old will be highly motivated for goals this weekend, and it isn't often he goes two without one. Therefore, we are backing the Dortmund frontman to get back amongst the goals with a brace priced at 13/2

HAALAND TO BAG A BRACE @ 13/2

Netherlands v Latvia - Depay to bag a brace

Frank de Boer's Dutch team face European minnows Latvia in the second fixture of their World Cup qualifying campaign off the back of a humiliating 4-2 defeat to Turkey in their opening game.

Despite only being six games into his reign as national team boss, de Boer is under increasing pressure to produce results after only winning two and losing three of those six games, meaning anything but a comfortable victory will see the Netherlands heavily scrutinised.

With there being such a gulf in the quality between the two teams, the goalscorer markets will be the best to explore for this fixture. Lyon attacker Memphis Depay boasts an impressive strike rate of 21 goals in 60 caps for the Dutch, and we are backing him to bag a brace at a boosted price of 9/2 against Latvia.

Serbia vs Portugal - Mitrovic and Ronaldo to score

Another two teams that come into their second round of fixtures off the back of a win are Serbia and Portugal, who beat Ireland and Azerbaijan in their opening fixtures. Portugal will ultimately come into this one as favourites with a squad blessed with incredible talent in its ranks. Fernando Santos' team will also be looking to build up momentum ahead of trying to defend their 2016 European Championship crown in the summer.

Aleksander Mitrovic may have struggled in the Premier League with Fulham this season, but the Serbian all-time leading goal scorer showed his true value against Ireland in midweek as he netted a brace after coming off the bench. In the Portugal camp, Cristiano Ronaldo would have been disappointed not to get on the scoresheet against Azerbaijan.

Still, the Juventus man has scored a whopping 102 goals in 170 caps for his country, meaning we are backing the two to score again at 5/1.

Croatia v Cyprus - Orsic to score first

Croatia host Cyprus on Saturday after a disappointing opening match of World Cup qualifying last time out in a 1-0 defeat against Slovenia. The 2018 World Cup finalists face a Cyprus team that earned a valiant point in their first fixture after frustrating Slovakia, and they could be a difficult proposition this coming Saturday.

Dinamo Zagreb winger Mislav Orsic had the best performance of the 20/21 Europa League season just last week against Tottenham after netting an incredible hat-trick to send Zagreb through on an aggregate score of 3-2.

The 28-year-old has been in outstanding form this season with 19 goals and eight assists in 36 games. Given his form, we are backing him to open the scoring at 7/2.
