The international break may mean a weekend without Premier League football, but there are plenty of high-stakes Euro 2024 Qualifiers coming up.
The first round of qualifiers are spread across Thursday to Saturday and we’ve picked out two games per day where the favourites could struggle.

International Outsiders Accumulator Tip
Thursday – Albania vs Czechia
The top two in Group E clash on Friday night, but leaders Albania are seen as outsiders even with home advantage. The hosts have taken a huge step forward in the race to qualify with three wins from their last four, drawing the other away to Czechia.
The visitors drew both of their games in the September window, each of which finished 1-1. Czechia have also won just twice across 10 away trips since the start of 2022. With Albania losing just one of their last six games, back them to hold off the visitors.
Tip: Albania or draw
Thursday – Spain vs Scotland
Scotland are on the verge of making Euro 2024 and their visit to Spain is a chance to wrap up a place at the tournament. A point would likely be enough, barring a big goal difference swing between them and Norway.
This break represents a good test of Scotland’s ambitions, as they’re meeting Spain before heading to France next week. Steve Clarke’s side kept things tight in what looked like a tricky visit to Norway and they have now won their last five away qualifiers. Back them to frustrate a Spanish side who showed their issues at Hampden earlier this term.
Tip: Scotland or draw
Friday – Republic of Ireland vs Greece
The Republic of Ireland’s hopes of making Euro 2024 seem basically over, with their 2-1 loss away to Greece earlier this year proving to be the hammer blow. Manager Stephen Kenny has been kept on for the rest of their 2023 fixtures, but his future looks bleak outside of that.
The Irish have lost four of their last five games, while they’ve lost at home to Ukraine, Norway, France and the Netherlands across their last eight home games. Greece have lost away to both France and Netherlands in this group, but they’re unbeaten outside of that and a strong defensive setup has kept them in the mix for the Euros and they can prey on issues within the Irish setup.
Tip: Greece or draw
Friday – Iceland vs Luxembourg
Iceland look unlikely to repeat their Euro 2016 heroics, as they come into this clash off the back of three defeats in four. Among those losses as a 3-1 defeat at Luxembourg, while the hosts have also won just one of their last eight at home.
Luxembourg were beaten heavily in their last game, a comprehensive loss at Portugal. However, that ended a three-game winning streak which put them in the mix for the Euros. The visitors have lost only one of their last seven competitive trips, so back them to avoid defeat.
Tip: Luxembourg or draw
Saturday – Slovenia vs Finland
Slovenia will be confident after big wins over Northern Ireland and San Marino in September, but that pair have become cut adrift at the bottom of Group H. There’s a four-way fight for the Euros excluding those sides and Finland’s solid start and favourable run-in should take them to Germany.
Finland have lost home and away to Denmark so far, but they’ve won every game outside of that, including a 2-0 victory over Slovenia. The visitors have produced excellent 1-0 wins at both Northern Ireland and Kazakhstan, while they’ve kept four clean sheets across their last five. That solid record should see them take something back from Ljubljana.
Tip: Finland or draw
Saturday – Bulgaria vs Lithuania
These two sides are level on points at the bottom of Group G, with Bulgaria losing to Iran and Montenegro in their September internationals. The hosts are winless across their last seven games, which includes a draw against Lithuania.
The visitors have drawn three of their last five games and they can hold firm at the struggling hosts. With Bulgaria scoring only twice across their last three home games, back the visitors to take something from this trip.
Tip: Lithuania or draw
