Poles to take advantage of Ronaldo-less Portugal

Bet 1: Back Poland @ 9/5 - KO 19:45 BST

Poland opened up their Nations League campaign with a draw against Italy and they now look to take advantage of a Portuguese side who are without Ronaldo.

Since that opening draw with the Italians, the Poles have drawn 1-1 with Ireland, but Robert Lewandowski has been banging in the goals for Bayern this season and he will be aiming to transfer that form to his country tonight.

I am not suggesting that Portugal are a one man team, but they don't have a great record without Ronaldo and they struggle for goalscorers when he's not on the pitch. The selection is far from a dead cert, but they should be shorter than 9/5.

Wales to get on the scoresheet against Spain

Bet 2: Back Spain & BTTS @ 12/5 - KO 19:45 BST

The Spanish have been in great form since their disappointing World Cup as they beat England 2-1 at Wembley and followed that up with a 6-0 thrashing of Spain - both in the Nations League.

They travel to Wales tonight with a few players missing, but the manager still has a pretty formidable squad at his disposal and I fully expect them to win.

Ryan Giggs' men have been playing some pretty adventurous football under his tenure though and even without Gareth Bale, I fancy them to score.

They produced a fantastic display in their 4-1 success over Ireland last month and if they play anywhere near like that, the Spain defence will be tested.

Scots to make it two in a row

Bet 3: Back Scotland @ 31/20 - KO 19:45 BST

Scotland travel to Israel with the hosts having lost four consecutive matches - two friendlies, one World Cup qualifier and one Nations League game.

The Scots ended their own losing streak last time out as they put three defeats behind them to beat Albania 2-0 at Hampden Park.

Alex McLeish will be looking to build on that in this Nations League fixture as he aims to make Scotland a competitive side again who can qualify for major tournaments.

A trip to Haifa is never easy, but Israel have won just one of their last 10 matches - losing eight of them.
