Meanwhile, England host Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium while Portugal welcome Ukraine in first round of matches
There are more qualifying fixtures for Euro 2020 this coming Friday evening (22 March) with Bulgaria looking to make a winning start when they host Montenegro. England will be looking to carry forward their recent momentum from the World Cup and the UEFA Nations League when Czech Republic come to Wembley, and Portugal will be expecting to take all three points on home soil against Ukraine.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the match between Bulgaria and Montenegro. Bulgaria come into this match without a win in their last three competitive fixtures – all in the UEFA Nations League – and will need to hit the ground running here if they are to build up a head of steam for the Euro 2020 finals.
Montenegro, by way of comparison, are also struggling right now. They lost their last two matches in the UEFA Nations League and come into this opening qualifier short of both form and confidence.
And while the betting is tight, it is Bulgaria who come into the contest as the slight favourites to make a winning start to the qualifiers. You can more than double your money by backing Bulgaria to take the points at 2.15, while Montenegro are out at 3.60 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.10, according to Oddsshark.
And we believe that home advantage could well be a key factor in this match. A narrow, 2-1 win for Bulgaria comes in at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.40.
England welcome Czech Republic to Wembley
On the same evening, England host Czech Republic in London looking to build on their excellent recent form. The Three Lions are unbeaten in their last five games, including a 3-2 win away to Spain in Seville back in October.
Czech Republic, meanwhile, have won two of their last three games and will certainly be no pushovers. Consistency however has let them down over recent months and a greater tactical nous may well be necessary if they are to make it through this qualifying group.
And it is indeed England who come in as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points in this match. You can back the Three Lions to win at just 1.28, while Czech Republic are all the way out at 11.00 to record what would be a shock win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.00.
This should be a comfortable evening’s work for the home side. A 3-1 win for England is priced competitively at 13.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.
Portugal host Ukraine
And finally, Portugal welcome Ukraine in their first Euro 2020 qualifier in a match they will be expecting to win. Portugal have not lost a match since the World Cup and can come into this contest absolutely brimming with confidence.
Ukraine, in stark contrast, have been in poor form of late and took just one point from six available in their last two UEFA Nations League matches. They cannot be relishing a trip to take on a Portugal side which is playing with such confidence and swagger.
And it is therefore of little surprise to see that it is indeed Portugal who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take the points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.40, while Ukraine are out at 10.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.
This could well be a rout in the home side’s favour. A 3-0 win for Portugal comes in at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
