Ireland vs Belgium (1700 GMT)

Ireland embark on a new era when interim manager John O’Shea leads his men into Saturday’s friendly against Belgium.

The Stephen Kenny tenure didn’t provide many happy memories for Irish fans with the national side winning just 11 of 40 matches under the former boss.

Getting a win over Belgium is not the priority. Instead, supporters want to see a glimmer of hope for the future.

With Belgium preparing for the Euros, we’re not hopeful for Ireland and are backing the Red Devils to continue their 11-match unbeaten run.

TIP: Belgium to win to nil

 

Slovakia vs Austria (1700 GMT)

Believe it or not, but this game could be a lot more exciting than it may first seem.

Both these nations are heading to the Euros and both will be looking to build some much needed momentum.

Austria have won their last three games, including a 2-0 success over their neighbours Germany.

Slovakia have won four of their last five internationals, scoring 12 goals along the way.

With all that in mind, we’re backing both teams to get on the scoresheet in Bratislava. 

TIP: Both teams to score

 

Denmark vs Switzerland (1900 GMT)

Two more teams who are heading for the Euros are Denmark and Switzerland.

The Danes are in good form winning five of their last six games. They have also won their last seven matches at home.

Switzerland, on the other hand, are looking for a spark. This is a team which boasts just one win from their last seven games – five of those matches ending in draws.

With that in mind, we’re backing the hosts to get the win in Copenhagen.

TIP: Denmark to win

 

France vs Germany (2000 GMT)

One of the most eye-catching fixtures this weekend sees France and Germany go head-to-head.

Les Bleus are one of the favourites to win the Euros and enter Saturday’s game having won eight of their last 10 internationals.

Germany, meanwhile, are totally out of form. Julian Nagelsmann’s men have won two of their last 10 matches, leaving the Euros hosts in a desperate slump.

The Germans need a positive result, but they will not get it if France pull out the big guns.

We’re backing Didier Deschamps’ men to put on a solid performance and score over 2.5 goals.

TIP: France to score over 2.5 goals

 

Croatia vs Tunisia (2000 GMT)

Croatia will be looking to secure their third straight victory on the international stage when they take on Tunisia over in Cairo, Egypt.

Tunisia are not the force they once were and the African outfit are expected to struggle should Croatia field a strong side.

With the Euros just around the corner, expect the European side to take this test seriously as they look for another big run at a major tournament.

Croatia to win this one in the handicap market is the way to go.

TIP: Croatia -1 Handicap
