Can England return to winning ways?
<div><h2>Bulgaria vs England</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Monday, October 14, at Stadion Vasil Levski</strong></a></p><p>England will be desperate to bounce back from their shock 2-1 defeat in Prague on Friday night. That 2-1 reverse ended their 100% record in Group A and saw the Czech Republic pull level with them on three points apiece. England have a game in hand and they will be keen to use it to secure victory over Bulgaria. The Three Lions won 4-0 when these teams met at Wembley earlier this year, and they are the vastly superior team. Bulgaria are winless thus far, with three draws and three defeats from six games, and they sit rock bottom of Group A. They are the home team, but there will not be much atmosphere inside Stadion Vasil Levski on Monday. The Bulgarians have been ordered to play behind closed doors as punishment for racist chanting at a previous game, although some children will be allowed to watch it. England will do some soul-searching after that defeat to the Czechs, manager Gareth Southgate will probably make some changes and England should return to winning ways.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">England to win and over 2.5 goals at 1.83 (5/6) with Betway</a></strong></p><h2>Ukraine vs Portugal</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Monday, October 14, at NSC Olimpiyski</strong></a></p><p>Ukraine did really well to hold Portugal to a draw on the road in their first Euro 2020 qualifying game. Since then they have won all five games and they sit top of Group B on 16 points. Portugal have 11 points after winning three and drawing one of their subsequent matches, but they do have a game in hand. If they beat Ukraine on Monday and then win their game in hand, they will storm to the top of the table. Portugal are the reigning European champions and they really should win this game. It is a tricky assignment, as they are away from home and Ukraine are in excellent form. Yet Portugal won the UEFA Nations League earlier this year, and since then they have beaten Serbia 4-2, Lithuania 5-1 and Luxembourg 3-0. They have arguably the world’s strongest attack in Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Joao Felix, and that should be enough to take three points against Ukraine.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfred">Portugal to win at 2.15 (23/20) with Betfred</a></strong></p><h2>Lithuania vs Serbia</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Monday, October 14, at LFF Stadium</strong></a></p><p>Serbia have suffered some humiliating defeats against Portugal and Ukraine in their group, but they remain a pretty good team. They are far better than Lithuania, who are bottom of the group, with one draw and five defeats from six games. The Lithuanians have scored just four goals and conceded 17 in that time. It finished 4-1 to Serbia when these teams met in Belgrade in last year’s Nations League clash, and Serbia picked up another 4-1 win when they met for a Euro 2020 qualifier this summer. Lithuania are on a four-game losing streak, while Serbia just picked up a morale-boosting 1-0 friendly win against Paraguay. Aleksandar Mitrovic was on target in that game, and the Fulham forward has the ability to run this Lithuania defence ragged on Monday. Serbia have plenty of quality midfielders, such as Adem Ljajic and Luka Milivojevic, and they should control this game.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Serbia -2 at 2.20 (6/5) with Bet365</a></strong></p></div>
