Kazakhstan play host Belarus on Thursday knowing that victory will be enough to secure promotion to the second tier of the UEFA Nations League.

Meanwhile, Belarus go into the remaining two games in Group 3 of League C, aware that they need at least one win to avoid the relegation games.

We say: Kazakhstan – Belarus 2-0

Despite dominating Group 3 of League C, Azerbaijan have not yet scored more than two goals in a single game. It’s a statistic that will only encourage the opponents, but we still expect the home side to do relatively easy work with Belarus on Thursday and secure promotion in the process.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

Latvia take over Moldova in the UEFA Nations League on Thursday, with the hosts securing promotion to Europe’s third tier of the competition by avoiding defeat.

Moldova need to win in Riga if they want any chance of overtaking their opponents at the top of Group 1.

We say: Latvia – Moldova 2:1

Latvia and Moldova each have good strikers to rely on in Vladislavs Gutkovskis and Ion Nicolaescu respectively, so we can expect some goals in Riga on Thursday.

However, the hosts go into this game in much better shape, but also have the advantage of being able to settle for a draw, so we can see that they will eventually eliminate their opponent.

Denmark can secure a place in the 2022-23 UEFA Nations League finals if they resume hostilities with Croatia in Group 1 of League A on Thursday at the Maksimir Stadium.

Kasper Hjulmand’s team currently leads the table with nine points, while the checkered team is only one place and two points behind the leaders.

We say: Croatia 0-0 Denmark

Denmark certainly have no affinity for draws, but after three months without caps, things could be getting rusty for both sides and June’s showdown was a very close clash.

Both defenses should also feel able to hold their opposing attackers at bay, especially since Denmark are a bit weak in this area. So we wouldn’t be surprised if that one ends goalless as the fight for the top spot goes to the end.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

France coach Didier Deschamps on March 25, 2022©Reuters

After seeing their hopes of back-to-back UEFA Nations League titles dashed, France Resume League A Group 1 duties at home Austria on Thursday evening.

Les Bleus face a devastating relegation to League B while their visitors are not much better off, sitting third with four points.

We say: France 2-0 Austria

Even with a number of top players sidelined through injury, Deschamps still has a wealth of talented names to draw on who need no extra motivation to impress with World Cup spots down the line.

Austria are less physically at the top even without many experienced internationals and without Kalajdzic, so we have faith that Les Bleus will rectify the summer’s mistakes and boost their hopes of survival with a straight win.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

Belgium enter the UEFA Nations League League A Group 4 match Wales on Thursday night needed three points to ensure they stay in contention for the finals.

In stark contrast, on the trip to Brussels, Wales are realizing that if they want to boast a grandstand finish, only the maximum number of points is enough Poland when it comes to avoiding relegation to the B-League.

We say: Belgium 2-0 Wales

As these two teams know each other very well, we expect this game to remain competitive throughout the 90 minutes. Still, we can’t hit back on familiar ground against Belgium as Martinez’s men could potentially secure the three points in the closing stages.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

Netherlands will be looking to get a step closer to their place in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals when they travel to Warsaw to play Poland in the penultimate game of Group 4 of League A on Thursday.

While the hosts have won just four of their last ten international home games, the Oranje are unbeaten in each of their last seven away games in all competitions.

We say: Poland – Netherlands 1:2

Both sides caused each other problems when they last met three months ago and another hard-fought clash is expected on Thursday.

Poland will be assessing their chances with Lewandowski at the helm but we can see the Netherlands pull off a narrow win that could be enough to secure their place in the Nations League semi-finals if Belgium fail to beat Wales.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

Lithuania will try to avoid relegation from Group 1 of League C of the UEFA Nations League if they are welcome Faroe Islands on Thursday to Vilnius.

In contrast, the hosts suffered a 2-0 defeat Turkey in their last game in June, while the visitors drew 2-2 away Luxembourg.

We say: Lithuania – Faroe Islands 1:2

Lithuania are under pressure to get maximum points against a Faroe Islands side who won the second leg and will be easy favorites despite their poor form away from home.

We expect both nations to cause problems in the last third but the visitors should have enough quality on their side to prevail.

Turkey coach Stefan Kuntz on March 29, 2022©Reuters

Turkey are aiming to extend their 100 percent record in the current UEFA Nations League season when they host Luxembourg on Thursday.

The visitors need to win to stand a chance of overtaking their upcoming opponents to the top.

We say: Turkey 2-0 Luxembourg

Even with a few injury-related absences in midfield, Turkey should have too much quality for the opponent.

Luxembourg have improved tremendously in recent years but quality is still lacking in certain areas and the hosts will be motivated to maintain their 100 per cent record and secure promotion to the B division.

Slovakia face Azerbaijan in Group 3 of League C of the UEFA Nations League on Thursday.

Unless Belarus can avoid defeat by group leaders Kazakhstan in Astana earlier in the day, both sides will be battling for second place.

We say: Slovakia – Azerbaijan 2:0

The Slovakian players should be more motivated than usual as they play in front of their new coach for the first time.

Azerbaijan is rarely beaten, but beaten regularly, and we can’t imagine more on Thursday in Trnava.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.

Jens Hofer and Andreas Malin from Liechtenstein in action on March 28, 2021©Reuters

In a fight at the end of the fourth tier of the UEFA Nations League, international minnows Liechtenstein and Andorra go head-to-head on Thursday.

Three months after the Liga D Group 1 rivals met in Andorra la Vella, they meet again at the Rheinpark Stadium in Vaduz, where the hosts are aiming for their first points of the season.

We say: Liechtenstein – Andorra 1:2

They can increase their goal tally – a single goal would instantly double them – but Liechtenstein could still continue their losing streak. Andorra have failed to score just three times in their last nine games, so they can overcome their struggles on the road to take maximum points.

Our tipster partners predict less than 3.5 goals.
