It’s time for the European national teams to kick off their EURO 2020 qualifying matches

<h2><strong>Austria vs Poland </strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/european-ch-ship-qf/austria-vs-poland-3690970/?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Austria vs Poland">Thursday, March 21, Ernst Happel Stadion</a></p><p>In 2018, Poland lost 2 of their 3 World Cup fixtures in Russia failing to qualify in the knock-out stages, finished last in their UEFA Nations League group earning just 2 points in 4 matches and getting relegated in league B. They’re aiming to make a flying start to their EURO 2020 qualifying group and return home with the 3 points beating Austria away from home. Jerzy Brzeczek has been named Poland's head coach, replacing Adam Nawalka after the team's group-stage exit at the World Cup. He declared he's full of enthusiasm and energy for the difficult task of rebuilding the national team but his UNL results were awful. Poland’s captain and superstar striker, Robert Lewandowski was very unhappy following Poland’s poor results in UNL declaring that the system used by his new coach was wrong and that there are other systems that suit them better. It’s a fresh start and Poland have the necessary quality to bounce back and give their fans something to cheer for. On the other side, Austria have a decent squad with many players performing at the highest level in the European domestic leagues. Poland are struggling to keep clean sheets conceding in 8 of their previous 9 matches across all competitions.</p><p><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score at 1.93 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds">Unibet</a></strong></em></p><h2><strong>Netherlands vs Belarus </strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/european-ch-ship-qf/netherlands-vs-belarus-3690966/?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Netherlands vs Belarus">Thursday, March 21, De Kuyp</a></p><p>The Netherlands have failed to qualify for the last 2 major tournaments, but their recent results are giving them hope for a fresh start. They are eager and determined to bring the glory days back, not only qualify to a major tournament but also to lift the trophy. They have a superb squad, a rock solid defence with one of the best center-backs in the work, Virgil van Dijk, a creative midfield with Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong and a deadly attacking line. After their recent home wins against France and Germany, the hosts will try to kick-off their EURO 2020 qualifiers in style and make it 8 straight home wins across all competitions. On the other side, Belarus won their UNL group earning 14 points from possible 18, recording 6 cleans sheets in the process. They played against San Marino, Luxembourg and Moldova and we can’t compare them with the Netherlands. We expect a clear home win.</p><p><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Netherlands to win with -2 Asian Handicap at 1.75 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds">Bet365</a></strong></em></p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Road to &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/EURO2020?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@EURO2020&lt;/a&gt; … the Dutch way 🚲🦁😜 &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/AiC12RZ0ka\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/AiC12RZ0ka&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Gini Wijnaldum (@GWijnaldum) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/GWijnaldum/status/1108010048402395136?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;March 19, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><h2><strong>Belgium vs Russia </strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/european-ch-ship-qf/belgium-vs-russia-3690971/?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Belgium vs Russia">Thursday, March 21, King Baudouin Stadium</a></p><p>Belgium are huge favourites for this match and they are expected to kick off their EURO qualifiers campaign with a home win. They are likely to have the same attacking-minded approach as they are fully packed with brilliant players all over the pitch. On the other side, Russia enter this campaign on the back of a great period with amazing results in the World Cup but with disappointing results in the UEFA Nations League in which they failed to climb the ladder. They failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches across all competitions losing 2 in the process, against Sweden and Germany. They will have a defensive approach and try to strike on the break, but Belgium should have enough weapons to win the 3 points.</p><p><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Belgium to win and under 4.5 goals in the match at 1.7 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds">Coral</a></strong></em></p><h2><strong>Related articles </strong></h2><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/football/euro-2020-qualifiers-friday-matches-preview-and-betting-tips/89629/" target="_blank" title="Euro 2020 Betting Tips">Euro 2020 Qualifiers Friday Matches Preview and Betting Tip</a></strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/football/euro-2020-qualifiers-friday-matches-preview-and-betting-tips/89629/" target="_blank" title="Euro 2020 Betting Tips"><strong>s</strong></a></p><p><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/football/multi-acca-bets-across-the-euro-2020-qualifiers-round-1/89628/" target="_blank" title="Euro 2020 qualifiers parlay bets">Multi Acca Bets Across the EURO 2020 Qualifiers Round 1</a></strong></p>
