Nations League - Football: Monday Betting Preview

13 June 2022 09:36:19 EST
Didier Deschamps' France have yet to win in this Nations League

Monday's UEFA Nations League action includes two massive matches in Group A1, while there is also a big meeting between Iceland and Israel.

There are no less than five fixtures to get stuck into on Monday as we come towards the end of this breathless international period.

Denmark edging ahead

What: Denmark v Austria, Nations League

Where: Parken Stadium, Copenhagen

When: 19:45, Monday 13th June 2022

How to watch: Not currently on UK TV.

Odds: Denmark 1.83, Austria 4.75, Draw 3.50

It has certainly been an unpredictable start to Group A1 of the Nations League as Denmark sit top of the pile on six points and reigning champions France are bottom with just two points to their name.

Austria and Croatia are wedged between in second and third respectively, both on four points, and the competitive nature of this quartet has made the matches a very compelling watch.

The Danes will be hoping to cement their position at the summit and move a step closer to the Finals when they welcome Austria to the Parken Stadium on Monday.

Kasper Hjulmand's men were on a three-game winning streak before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Croatia last time out, a result that also ended their five-match winning run on home soil.

While Denmark will be eager for a quick response, it won't be easy for them as they take on an Austrian side that have already bought into new manager Ralf Rangnick's methods.

Having failed to shine in his interim managerial position at Manchester United during the 2021/22 campaign, the 63-year-old led Das Team to a 3-0 victory over Croatia in his first game in charge.

A narrow 2-1 defeat to Denmark followed before a 1-1 draw was recorded against France last time out, leaving Austria in contention for a place in the Nations League Finals.

Monday's meeting in Copenhagen is a difficult one to call and it may prove more prudent to go down the goals market, with both teams to score priced at 1.83.

Denmark have kept just one clean sheet from their last seven outings, while it's just one shutout from the previous eight assignments for Austria.

Les Bleus need to find spark

What: France v Croatia, Nations League

Where: Stade de France, Saint-Denis

When: 19:45, Monday 13th June 2022

How to watch: Premier Sports 1

Odds: France 1.45, Croatia 7.50, Draw 4.33

With the top two in Group A1 battling it out on Monday, rock-bottom France will be hoping to make up some ground on those above them when they take on Croatia at the Stade de France.

It has been a disappointing run of fixtures for the reigning champions, who kicked off their Nations League defence with a 2-1 home defeat to Denmark before recording back-to-back 1-1 away draws in Croatia and Austria.

Didier Deschamps' men have yet to really click into gear and they will need to be wary of a Croatia side that picked up an impressive 1-0 win over the Danes last time out, extending their unbeaten run to two games.

Shutting out the opposition has been an issue for both France and Croatia, with the pair keeping just one clean sheet each from their five assignments, and the both teams to score could be a good play at 2.00.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe did score in the draw against Austria last time out and he looks a solid price at 2.00 to net anytime on Monday, especially given the fact he scored against Croatia in the Nations League meeting in October 2020.

Israel eye huge victory

What: Iceland v Israel, Nations League

Where: Laugardalsvollur, Reykjavík

When: 19:45, Monday 13th June 2022

How to watch: Premier Extra UK

Odds: Iceland 2.90, Israel 2.45, Draw 3.40

Over in Group B2 there is a massive contest taking place in Reykjavík as Israel, who top the standings with four points from two matches, take on second-placed Iceland.

Israel kicked off with a 2-2 home draw against Iceland before they edged out Albania 2-1 last time out to move to the summit, with Manor Solomon grabbing both goals in that triumph.

While a trip to Laugardalsvollur won't be easy, Alon Hazan's men are unbeaten in the four previous meetings with their Icelandic foes - winning twice and drawing twice.

Iceland have also struggled to perform in their own backyard, having won just one of their last 10 home matches, and this will give further confidence to Monday's visitors.

Another victory for Israel would put them a step closer to promotion to League A and they look the best value to get the job done in Reykjavík.

Having bagged a brace last time out, Shakhtar Donetsk ace Solomon will be full of confidence and he can be backed at 3.60 to find the back of the net anytime on Monday.

Plenty at stake in Group C3

What: Kazakhstan v Slovakia, Nations League

Where: Astana Arena, Nur-Sultan

When: 15:00, Monday 13th June 2022

How to watch: Premier Sports 1

Odds: Kazakhstan 4.20, Slovakia 1.83, Draw 3.25

The top two in Group C3 face off on Monday as leaders Kazakhstan play host to Slovakia in a crucial promotion clash.

Just one point separates these two heading into the contest and a victory for either would give them a big boost in the hunt for a place in League B.

Kazakhstan are on a six-game unbeaten run heading into the meeting - winning five and drawing one - while Slovakia have won four of their last five away matches.
