Dan Fitch is on hand with Thursday's Euro 2020 predictions and he has his money on Poland winning both halves against Latvia.

"Poland remain top of the group and will surely get back to winning ways against a Latvian side that have lost all six of their matches."

Back Poland to win both halves against Latvia at [1.87]

Home form points to Kazakhstan win

These sides are battling to finish third in Group I, with neither having any chance to catch the leaders Belgium and second placed Russia.

When they met in the reverse fixture it ended in a draw. The only other team that Cyprus have picked up points against are San Marino (P2 W2), while Kazakhstan enjoyed a dominant victory over Scotland at home. With the Kazakhs having won five of their last eight home games (D1 L2), they should claim three points at [2.18].

Belarus defence can hold firm

Belarus are rightly the short priced favourites for this one, after travelling to Estonia and winning 2-1 last month.

They are assured of a play-off spot after winning their Nations League group in which they emerged unbeaten, without conceding a goal (P6 W4 D2). Belarus are [2.06] to win to nil.

Euro 2020 top scorer a big price

Poland look likely to win Group G, but there are four nations battling for second place. Amongst them are Austria and Israel and it's curious to see the home side as such big favourites, after losing the reverse fixture 4-2.

Both teams to score could land again at [2.06]. Another option is to back Israel's Eran Zahavi to score at [3.8]. He scored a hat-trick in the first game against Austria and is the top scorer of the qualification process with nine goals.

Mertens can get on scoresheet again

Belgium [1.01] v San Marino [360.0]; The Draw [160.0]

Not only is this a guaranteed home win, but it's even hard to find any value in Belgium racking up a large number of goals.

The price of [2.0] for Dries Mertens to score, does appeal though. He has found the net in two of Belgium's last four games, including the away match against San Marino.

Hungary in fine goalscoring form

Croatia [1.36] v Hungary [10.0]; The Draw [5.4]

Croatia are top of Group E, but their erratic form since reaching the final of the 2018 World Cup has continued.

They have only won one of their last seven matches (D1 L3), which makes their odds a little bit stingy. This is especially true considering that Hungary beat Croatia at home and have scored in each of the last five games. Both teams to score is [2.28].

Dominant win for Poland

Latvia [29.0] v Poland [1.12]; The Draw [11.0]
Kick off 19:45

Poland got off to a great start in Group G, winning their first four games, but have since failed to win their last two (D1 L1).

They remain top of the group and will surely get back to winning ways against a Latvian side that have lost all six of their matches. Back Poland at [1.87] to win both halves.

Cautiously back Slovenia win

North Macedonia [3.6] v Slovenia [2.36]; The Draw [3.3]
Kick off 19:45

Slovenia won their home games against Poland and Israel in September and are now second in Group G, just two points behind the Poles.

North Macedonia managed to get a draw in Slovenia, but have failed to win any of their four games against the top three in the group (D2 L2). It seems unlikely that you'll lose money by backing Slovenia in the Draw No Bet market at [1.61].
