• Italy and England gear up for a rematch
• Slovakia will host rivals Czech Republic
England will have a chance to avenge themselves against Italy as they face them away from home. In last year’s World Cup they lost the game 2:1, but now things are different and new players are in.

Slovakia vs Czech and Italy vs England
Slovakia will square off against rivals Czech Republic at 20:30 CET tonight where they will try to instill their won gaming philosophy and win the encounter. It is safe to say that this game will provide fans with many great spectacles considering that both nations are enjoying great form at the moment. In Group A, Czech Republic occupy 1st place with 13 points after winning 4 games and only blundering once which resulted in a draw.
The Slovaks were so far equally impressive in the qualifying round for EURO 2016. They sit in 1st position of Group C with a cool 15 points, which they accumulated thanks to raking up 5 straight wins. Online sportsbooks in EU believe that this game might finish in a draw 3.20 (11/5), while a win for the hosts is 2.40 (7/5). A victory for the visiting country stands at 3.00 (2/1), signifying their underdog status.
Italy will go head to head with old foes England. The pair met in the group stage in Brazil during the 2014 World Cup, in a game that produced 3 goals and saw Italy clinch the bragging rights after 90 minutes. This time Roy Hodgson’s men will have an opportunity to get revenge, and thanks to the fresh recruits to the England squad they just might seal their goals of winning the match.
In the qualifiers for France 2016, Italy find themselves in second position in Group H with 11 points. They are right behind Croatia who boast an incredible 13 points, while the second-placed team have so far collected 3 wins and 2 draws granting them less points. Nevertheless, Bet365 believes that Italy has a better chance to winning, which is why they are the favorites 2.63 (13/8), while a win for the travelling nation is less likely 3.00 (2/1).
Netherlands vs Spain and Portugal vs Cape Verde
Netherlands currently find themselves in a dire position. Their qualifying group consists of Czech Republic, Iceland, Turkey and others, however despite their great batch of players they are not able to find their winning mentality. So far they only managed to win on 2 occasions, with the other games ending in 2 losses and 1 draw, which saw them notch only 7 points overall.
Spain on the other hand are second in Group C with 12 points, right behind leaders Slovakia. Until this point they have won 4 times, with suffering only 1 loss in the process. The two of them met in the 2010 World Cup final which saw the Spaniards lift the trophy, so the Dutch will have a shot in redeeming their name. However, online betting providers do not favor the Netherlands to win 3.25 (9/4), as they prefer Spain to win the encounter 2.38 (11/8).Whichever way the game goes, it is sure to be one great match to watch.
The final encounter on the agenda is the one between Portugal and Cape Verde. The 2004 EURO runner-ups hold a firm position at the top of Group I for France 2016, after collecting 9 points from 3 wins and 1 loss. They also boast the one of the greatest players in the history of football Cristiano Ronaldo, which should help them win the match.
Cape Verde are not considered a serious side that can challenge for the top as they now sit in 38th spot on the FIFA World Rankings with 762 points. Mobile betting sites believe that Portugal should be able to easily overcome their next opponents, assigning them favorite status 1.30 (3/10). A win for the visiting team stands at an unlikely 9.00 (8/1), while a draw is 5.50 (9/2).
