For our World Cup qualifier predictions today, we’re focussing on England’s first real test of the campaign as the travel to Albania. Can the three Lions make continue their perfect start? Our World Cup qualifier tips, betting info and predictions follow on below.
Albania joined England in being the only two teams to grab three points from the opening games in group A. However, they were less Emphatic than England, only managing to beat Andorra by a single goal. The win does now mean that Albania have won each of their last four games and are undefeated in their last six. However, they haven’t come up against a top five ranked team since they lost 2-0 to France back in November 2019. Therefore, they could find this tie against England to be a very tricky one.
There are some spectacular looking starts for several members of the England squad following their 5-0 opening win. However given that the win was against the current worst ranked team in the world, we can’t read to much into that. England are strong favourites for our World Cup qualifier predictions for this group, with Poland posing the biggest threat. Harry Kane was left out for the game against minnows San Marino, but is expected to return to the fold for this one. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also expected to hold his place.
There are no recorded past meetings between these sides in recent competitive international football. We therefore have no head to head that can influence our World Cup qualifier predictions here. Albania are technically the more in form side, having won each of their last four. England have scored nine goals in their last two without reply, however that was preceded by a 2-0 loss to Belgium.
Below, we’ve provided you with three statistical highlights that we believe could have an influence on our World Cup qualifier prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net. We’ve also discussed both sides’ recent form
Having analysed the above information, our World Cup qualifier predictions point to an English win.
Unsurprisingly, England are heavy favourites at odds of 1.29, however Albania’s recent form does show that they are no pushovers. They have however, conceded in three of their list four games despite winning, while England have got two clean sheets on the bounce under their belt. Moreover, England’s recent record shows they only tend to conceded against higher ranked teams, which means that and England clean sheet isn’t offering a great value as a bet. We’re therefore looking for winning margin, and think that England will win by two goals, which you can back at odds of 3.75 with Bet365.
