There are some exciting Euro 2020 games on Saturday...
<div><h2>Russia vs Belgium</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, November 16, at Krestovsky Stadium</strong></a></p><p>Belgium sit top of Group I with a perfect record of eight wins from eight games. However, they are not yet guaranteed to finish top of the standings, as Russia have won seven of eight and they are just three points behind Roberto Martinez’s men. It finished 3-1 to Belgium when these teams met in Brussels in the very first round of fixtures, and since then Russia have embarked on a seven-game winning streak. Belgium have kept seven consecutive clean sheets since then and scored 27 goals, bringing their tally to 30 in just eight matches. This will be a real clash of the Group I titans, but Belgium have better players in every department and they should seal a victory and sew up the group.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Belgium to win at 2.05 (21/20) with Bet365</a></strong></p><h2>Croatia vs Slovakia</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, November 16, at Stadion HNK Rijeka</strong></a></p><p>World Cup finalists Croatia are top of Group E, but it is looking extremely congested. There are just five teams in this group, so each country plays eight matches. Croatia have taken 14 points from seven games so far and they really need to end their qualifying campaign with a win in order to progress to next summer’s tournament. Hungary are just behind them, with 12 points from seven games, while Slovakia are on 10 points, but they have only played six matches. Croatia could finish outside the top two if they lose this game, so they need to generate a strong performance. They have struggled on the road throughout qualifying, but their one away win came against Slovakia, as they thrashed Pavel Halep’s men 4-0 in September. They have been excellent at home so far, winning all three games, and they should be able to secure a comfortable victory on Saturday.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Croatia and over 1.5 goals at 1.80 (4/5) with Ladbrokes</a></strong></p><h2>Northern Ireland vs Netherlands</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, November 16, at Windsor Park</strong></a></p><p>A bizarre scheduling quirk ensured that Northern Ireland began their qualifying campaign with home and away matches against both Belarus and Estonia. They took maximum points from that four-game period and sat top of Group C, but then they had to play heavyweights Germany and the Netherlands home and away. They lost 2-0 at home to the Germans and then 3-1 away in Amsterdam and they have now slipped down to third place. The Netherlands are top of the pile after securing a strong 4-2 away victory over Germany in September. They have an extremely strong spine to the team, with Virgil Van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt in defence and Frenkie de Jong and Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield. They have lacked a striker in recent years, but PSV wunderkind Donyell Malen has scored 10 goals in 10 games so far this season and he looks capable of leading the line with aplomb. They should have too much quality for a spirited but limited Northern Ireland team, whose manager, Michael O’Neill is now trying to juggle his role with managing Championship club Stoke City.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">Netherlands -1.25 Asian handicap at 1.97 (97/100) with Betway</a></strong></p><h2>San Marino vs Kazakhstan</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, November 16, at San Marino Stadium</strong></a></p><p>San Marino is a dot in the middle of Italy and its population is just 33,400. The country’s football team is composed of amateurs that have regular day jobs, but occasionally have the opportunity to play against some of the biggest names in European football. They are routinely thrashed. San Marino sit bottom of Group I, with eight defeats in eight games. They are yet to score a goal, and they have conceded 43 in that time. They are the bottom ranked country in the world by FIFA, below Eritrea and the Virgin Islands. Kazakhstan do not boast the biggest names in European football, but they were still good enough to beat San Marino 4-0 in Astana earlier in qualifying. They have only taken seven points from their eight games thus far, but they should be able to beat San Marino comfortably on Saturday.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Kazakhstan -2.75 Asian handicap at 2.00 (evens) with Bet365</a></strong></p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p></div>
