Sportingbet Preview: Euro Qualifiers

Our official betting partners Sportingbet take you through tonight's Euro 2012 qualifying matches...

With domestic football still taking a breather during the international break, Tuesday night brings us another round of Euro 2012 qualifying action with all five home nations taking to the field in make-or-break fixtures. So let's see if we here at Sportingbet can point you in the right direction of a few winning international bets.

England return to competitive action as they entertain Montenegro at Wembley. Both nations lead the way in Group G with 100% records but Fabio Capello's men are hot favourites at 3/20 to take all three points. Montenegro are 14/1 to spring a surprise with the draw priced at 5/1. Fiorentina starlet Stevan Jovetić is missing through injury but Roma forward Mirko Vučinić has the quality to trouble the home defence. Nevertheless, we here at Sportingbet expect a home victory with Peter Crouch first to score at9/2 or 6/5 to net at anytime.

Wales travel to Switzerland eager to put a 1-0 home loss to Bulgaria behind them. At the same time, the Swiss were also slipping to defeat at Montenegro, giving both nations a mountain to climb to have any chance of qualifying for the finals in two years time. Switzerland are 2/5 to pile more misery on caretaker boss Brian Flynn in the Group G clash. If you fancy an away win, you can get odds of 13/2 with Sportingbet and 3/1 on the draw.

Scotland surrendered top spot in Group I to Spain on Friday night when going down 1-0 in the Czech Republic. But the Scots have a perfect chance to overtake the Spanish on Tuesday evening when the World Champions arrive at Hampden Park. Scotland are 7/1 to register a win and 16/5 to grab a point from the game, with Spain at 7/20. Under pressure Craig Levein will be hoping for a reaction from his troops but a 1-0 away win at 9/2 with Sportingbet looks like good value for punters.

A resolute Northern Ireland display earned them a deserved point against Italy in Belfast on Friday night and on Tuesday they face the relatively comfortable trip to Group C whipping boys the Faroe Islands. Nigel Worthington's charges are 3/10 favourites to win, with the hosts a generous 8/1. The draw has been chalked up at 7/2. All-time leading goalscorer David Healey is 3/1 to break the deadlock with Sportingbet or 5/6 to score at anytime.

Finally, there's an intriguing clash in Group B as Slovakia welcome the Republic of Ireland to Zilina. Ireland were beaten 3-2 by group favourites Russia in Dublin whilst Slovakia slipped to defeat in Armenia in Friday's action. Both countries have aspirations to qualify and a second defeat in a week is unthinkable in both camps. Slovakia are 5/4 to record a win but Giovanni Trapattoni's team will be unfazed by the challenge and are priced at 2/1. We expect it to be a tight affair and Sportingbet have the draw at 21/10.
