There's another round of Nations League matches on Sunday and Dan Fitch has his money on there being goals when Russia host Turkey.

"League B, Group 2 is wide open right now, as no team has managed to make home advantage count. Russia won away in Turkey in the reverse fixture, but could only draw 0-0 at home to Sweden this week. Turkey had already beaten the Swedes in Solna, having scored two late goals to pull off a 3-2 smash and grab victory."

Back both Russia and Turkey to score at [2.0]

UEFA Nations League, Sunday 14 October

Romania and Serbs will deliver again

Romania and Serbia are battling it out at the top of League C, Group 4, with both teams winning their games on Thursday night.

It's currently Serbia that hold a two point advantage and are in the crucial promotion spot, but Romania earned a 2-2 draw away from home when these sides met in the reverse tie, in which they twice had to fight back. It's likely to be another closely fought game, so back both teams to score at [1.91].

Another win for Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan [1.3] v Malta [13.0]; The Draw [5.5]

Azerbaijan won impressively away at the Faroe Islands in midweek, extending their unbeaten record in the Nations League (W1 D2).

They should add another win when they host a Malta side that lost 3-1 in Kosovo on Thursday. Back Azerbaijan to win half-time/full-time at [1.83].

Play safe with Kosovo victory

Faroe Islands [3.1] v Kosovo [2.45]; The Draw [3.2]

Kosovo are top of Group D, League 3, adding to their unbeaten record with a win over a 3-1 win over Malta in their most recent fixture (W2 D1).

They won the reverse match against the Faroes and with the island nation having just lost to Azerbaijan, the odds on an away win look generous. Kosovo are a big enough price that you can play it safe and go with them in the Draw No Bet market at [1.73].

Both teams will score

Russia [2.16] v Turkey [3.8]; The Draw [3.3]
Kick off 17:00

League B, Group 2 is wide open right now, as no team has managed to make home advantage count. Russia won away in Turkey in the reverse fixture, but could only draw 0-0 at home to Sweden this week. Turkey had already beaten the Swedes in Solna, having scored two late goals to pull off a 3-2 smash and grab victory.

Turkey drew 0-0 themselves in a friendly with Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday, which was the first time that they had failed to score in eight matches. They and Russia should get back among the goals, so go for both teams to score at [2.0].

Low scoring game

Israel [2.4] v Albania [3.6]; The Draw [3.2]
Kick off 19:45

Israel's 2-1 home win against Scotland this week means that after two games, all three teams in League C, Group 1, have won one, lost one and are tied on three points.

With neither side in particularly good form and both struggling for goals, it's best to bank on this being a low scoring match. Back under 1.5 goals at [2.9].

Montenegro can keep another clean sheet on the road

Lithuania [4.0] v Montenegro [2.0]; The Draw [3.3]
Kick off 19:45

Lithuania are rock bottom of League C, Group 4, having lost all three of their games, including the reverse fixture against Montenegro, which ended 2-0.

Montenegro have drawn their last three away games 0-0, but should be able to sneak an away win against a side that are struggling. Back Montenegro to win to nil at [3.1].
