Competition: U21’s European qualifiers
Market: Eddie Nketiah to score 2+ goals
Odds: 6/4 @ 888sport
Already securing their spot at the U21’s European Championships finals, England’s youth stars will welcome Andorra to Stoke’s Bet365 Stadium on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, after playing out what was that dramatic 3-3 draw away at Andorra last month, England’s U21’s did manage to make a return to winning ways and have already booked their spot at next year’s finals. Last seen at Molineux picking up a deserved 2-1 win against Turkey, the Three Lions have cruised their way through Group Three, collecting 22 points from their eight appearances. With a real reputation for their free-scoring displays during qualifying and watching Arsenal starlet Eddie Nketiah become the U21’s all-time leading goalscorer last month with 14 goals, Head Coach Aidy Boothroyd has also seen his squad win each of their last three straight home fixtures on the bounce. With that run highlighted by a thumping 6-1 win against Austria, the Whites should be looking to make another statement on Friday night.
As for the visitors, still sat rock-bottom of the table despite picking up that shock point against England on home soil last month, it appears that dramatic point was just a minor positive note for Andorra. Slumping back to losing ways as they suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Kosovo, the Reds have collected just a single point from their last three Group Three appearances. Even more worrying for Eloy Casals’ side, along with that defeat on foreign soil last month, his squad hold a dreadful record on the road. Remarkably, the guests have lost each of their previous seven away fixtures and they have remarkably never failed to secure a win on their travels. In for what should be a tough trip to Stoke’s Bet365 Stadium on Friday, it should be noted that the last time Andorra visited England back in 2018, they were hit with a 7-0 drumming.
Bet: Eddie Nketiah 6/4 to score 2+ goals against Andorra’s U21’s in Friday’s European qualifiers @ 888sport
