International match preview 11 November 2016

World Cup qualification continues this weekend with vital matches across the globe. The oldest football rivalry in the world is resumed at Wembley on Saturday as England face Scotland while there’s also a mouthwatering match between Brazil and Argentina to look forward to.
Keep reading for our international football betting preview.

International bet of the weekend

They may not be one of the most well-known sides in European football but Montenegro have improved markedly since their first official match in 2007.
They lost in a play-off to qualify for Euro 2012 and while they have fallen down the FIFA rankings in the last couple of years they were as high as 25th just three years ago. Under coach Lubisa Tumbakovic the Brave Falcons have started their World Cup qualification campaign in fine style and they sit at the top of Group E after three matches.
Montenegro travel to Armenia this week who sit bottom of the group with no wins and eight goals conceded. They were hammered 5-0 at home by Romania in October with Monetenegro putting the same number of goals past Kazakhstan.
If you consider that Montenegro have only conceded one goal in qualifying and that they beat Denmark in Copenhagen last month, they look absolutely terrific value at evens.

All eyes on Wembley as England face their auld rivals

The oldest rivalry in international football is reignited this Friday night as England take on Scotland at Wembley.
England sit at the top of Group F despite a difficult start to their qualifying campaign. The departure of Sam Allardyce has left Gareth Southgate in temporary charge of the side who were largely uninspiring in a 2-0 win over Malta and a goalless draw in Slovenia.
A disappointing home draw with Lithuania and defeat in Slovakia mean that Scotland already face an uphill task to qualify for Russia and another defeat here could end Gordon Strachan’s time in charge of the Scots.
Scotland have only beaten their old rivals once in the last 30 years (although that was at Wembley). England are just 1/3 to win with Scotland available at a massive 8/1.

The pick of the international matches

Group A is one of the trickier European qualifying pools and the top two meet in Paris this Friday. France can consolidate their place at the top of the table with a win over Sweden who are unbeaten after three matches.
The pair may both be on seven points but the home side should win this at 1/5.
Holland sit third in the Group A table after a difficult couple of years and are desperately in need of a win in Luxembourg. The minnows are not the pushover they once were – they were a minute away from grabbing an impressive draw in Bulgaria last month, conceded just once to Sweden and then earned a draw in Belarus.
The Netherlands are 1/8 to win with the home side 18/1 to pick up a huge scalp.
Switzerland and Portugal lead the way in Group B and should have no trouble in beating the Faroe Islands and Latvia respectively.
Northern Ireland continue their efforts to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986 as they welcome Azerbaijan. Michael O’Neill’s side are just 4/7 to win but this could be a trickier game than they expect. The visitors have yet to concede in Group C qualifying and while they are not full of goals themselves, the 11/2 looks like a very, very decent price.
Group D is another close group and both Ireland and Wales are in action on Saturday. Wales have a tough match against group leaders Serbia while Ireland are away in Austria.
These are two difficult games to call. Serbia look decent value at a standout 23/10 while Ireland can take a huge step towards qualification if they can win in Vienna at 11/4.
There’s a massive match in Belo Horizonte on Thursday night as two giants of world football meet. Brazil top South American qualifying and they face Argentina who currently sit outside the qualification berths.
Just six points separate the top 7 in the table and so this is a contest that is going down to the wire. Argentina haven’t won any of their last three qualifiers and are 5/2 to grab a much needed three points, while Brazil are 21/20.
Elsewhere Uruguay are 8/15 to beat Ecuador while Chile are 11/4 to win in Colombia.
