Euro qualifiers return on Thursday!
<div><h2>Faroe Islands vs Sweden</h2><p><strong><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Thursday, May 9, at Torsvollur</a></strong></p><p>This looks like a total mismatch. Sweden are ranked 18<sup>th</sup> in the world by FIFA following a strong World Cup campaign last year, and they boast star names like Emil Forsberg and Victor Lindelof. The Faroe Islands have a population of just 49,000, which is not even enough to fill out Sweden’s national stadium in Stockholm. They have no footballing pedigree to speak of and they have lost all four games so far in Group F, conceding an average of three goals per game. Sweden lost 3-0 to Spain last time out, but there is no shame in that as the Spanish are superb. Janne Andersson’s men have already beaten Malta and Romania and drawn 3-3 away with Norway, and they should be able to finish second in this group.</p><p><strong>Tips: <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Sweden half-time / full-time at 1.80 (4.5) with Coral</a>; <a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">Sweden -1.75 Asian handicap at 1.91 (10/11) with Betway</a></strong></p><h2>Finland vs Greece</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, May 9, at Tampere Stadium</strong></a></p><p>The Finns are in great form and they have moved up to second in Group J after rattling off three consecutive wins. They lost their opener to table topping Italy, but they have since beaten Armenia and Liechtenstein on the road and Bosnia &amp; Herzegovina at home. Each of those games finished 2-0, showing that Finland are solid at the back and dangerous going forwards. Bosnia in particular are a very strong team, so that win should give Finnish fans plenty of confidence ahead of this game. They will also be pleased to note the form of Teemu Pukki, who banged in five goals in his opening three Premier League games of the season for Norwich. Greece drew 2-2 with Bosnia in their opener, but they have since lost three in a row, to Turkey, Italy and Armenia, which does not bode well.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="William Hill">Finland to win at 2.20 (6/5) with William Hill</a></strong></p><h2>Gibraltar vs Denmark</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, May 9, at Victoria Stadium</strong></a></p><p>Gibraltar’s population is even smaller than that of the Faroe Islands, and the football team features firemen, policemen and builders. They will be no match for a slick Denmark side that should be full of confidence after thumping Georgia 5-1 last time out. It ended a run of several consecutive draws for the Danish, and they will be keen to build up a winning streak now. They are already five points behind runaway group leaders Republic of Ireland, although they have a game in hand. Switzerland are also in this group, so Denmark need to keep winning and potentially build up a strong goal difference. They have plenty of offensive weapons in the form of Christian Eriksen, Kasper Dolberg and Martin Braithwaite, so they should win this one comfortably.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Denmark to win and over 4.5 goals at 2.20 (6/5) with Coral</a></strong></p><h2>Romania vs Spain</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, May 9, at Arena Nationala</strong></a></p><p>Spain sit comfortably top of Group F after winning all four games, banging in 11 goals and conceding just twice. They have been absolutely steamrollering their opponents and that does not augur well for Romania. Cosmin Contra’s men are in good form, having taken seven points from their first four games, and that leaves them second in the group. However, Spain can open up a nine-point lead if they win this game, so they will be keen to assert their superiority over their rivals. They beat a very good Swedish team 3-0 last time out, so they should be full of confidence ahead of this game. They have a new manager in Robert Moreno and the players will be keen to impress him. He is without injured trio Isco, Marco Asensio and Alvaro Morata, but he has plenty of talent at his disposal. Sergio Ramos will anchor the defence, while the likes of Rodri, Sergio Busquets, Saul Niguez, Dani Ceballos and Thiago Alcantara will battle for a midfield berth. Jordi Alba, Dani Carvajal, Dani Parejo and Fabian Ruiz provide good options down the flanks, and Rodrigo will vie with Paca Alcacer to lead the line. Romania are a decent side, but Spain are stronger and they should win this one.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Unibet">Spain -1 Asian handicap at 1.73 (8/11) with Unibet</a></strong></p></div>
