The international break was very profitable as we went 8-2 in the first three days with the average odds at 2.05. Tuesday is the last day for this round of fixtures but next week we will be back with the top five European leagues.

<h2 style="text-align:center">France vs Germany (League A, Group 1)</h2><p>Germany won just 3 in their previous 12 matches across all competition, losing 5 matches in the process. They failed to find the back of the net in 4 of their last 6 games. Germany coach Joachim Loew in under huge pressure after his poor World Cup results and the shocking 3-0 defeat away in the Netherlands. His former captain Michael Ballack turned on him before the UEFA Nations League matches, claiming he was surprised to see Loew keeping his job after being crashed out in the World Cup group stage. The match against France might be Loew’s last match as Germany’s coach as he faces one of the toughest tests of his 12-year tenure as head coach. If they don’t bounce back and improve something fast, Germany might get relegated in League B.</p><p>They were held to a goalless draw at home by France in their 1st Nations League match, but given their huge injury issues and low confidence, we expect them to extend their poor run and remain with 1 point after 3 matches. Antonio Rudiger, Kai Havertz and Marco Reus have withdrawn from the squad injured, while Jonathan Tah, Ilkay Gundogan and Nils Petersen were not selected so they are forced to face France with a reduced 21-man squad at their disposal. On the other side, World Cup winners France are unbeaten in their last 14 matches, failing to contribute on the scoreboard in just 2 of them, against Denmark in the World Cup and away in Germany in the UEFA Nations League. At home on Tuesday, France are expected to use their best starting XI, dominate the match and show Germany they’re much better.</p><p><strong>Best pick for the match: </strong>France to win at 1.85 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=147&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f" rel="nofollow">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center">Ukraine vs Czech Republic (League B, Group 1)</h2><p>Czech Republic had a terrible period, losing at home to Ukraine in their Nations League debut, followed by a hammering 5-1 defeat to Russia, which really laid out their huge problems. They bounced back in style beating their neighbors Slovakia 2-1 on the road, being very organized in their defense and deadly on the break. On the other side, the hosts are the early frontrunners in their group, sitting 1st in the standings with 6 points earned in 2 matches. They have a fantastic squad and they are unbeaten in their last 8 matches across all competitions. They managed to hold Italy to a 1-1 draw few days ago and they enter this match full confidence, determined to add 3 points to their group tally and secure their 1st place in the standings.</p><p><strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Ukraine to win at 1.83 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=26ea6fa8-c86d-4d9d-9328-b4c0b06702ae&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow">Unibet</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Extra Tips</h2><p><strong>Ireland vs Wales (League B, Group 4):</strong> Both teams to score NO at 1.72 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=147&amp;a=32b59d0e-2bfb-43ac-987d-fd24429abae0" rel="nofollow">Betfair</a><br /><strong>Norway vs Bulgaria (League C, Group 3):</strong> Norway to win at 1.65 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=c2ed1a45-de32-42ca-ab6a-cf5b6681a105&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow">BetVictor</a></p>
