The Nations League campaign continues on Sunday as Belgium look to extend their perfect record when they head to Wembley to face England.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez

The Red Devils sit top of League A Group A2 after winning their first two matches and they are two points clear of second-placed England ahead of Sunday’s meeting.

Belgium boast a wealth of talent in all areas and are priced rather generously at 8/5 to make it three from three at Wembley.

England’s hopes of earning victory have been hit by the news that captain Harry Kane is rated as a doubt due to a muscle injury, while Raheem Sterling is not available after withdrawing from international duty last week.

Indeed, they could become the first side in a decade to earn three consecutive wins over England after sealing two victories at the 2018 World Cup.

Both of those fixtures ended to nil in favour of Roberto Martinez’s men, who finished third at the competition in Russia, but backing both teams to score at 20/27 looks the way to go in this one.

Belgium have scored in each of their last 19 outings while England have netted at least once in 16 of their last 19 engagements across all competitions.

Romania to Pile Further Misery on Norway

Norway lost just once in 2019, having played 10 times, but they have fallen to two defeats in just three outings in 2020.

Lars Lagerback’s men saw their dream of reaching next summer’s European Championships ended on Thursday as they fell to a 2-1 extra-time defeat at home to Serbia in the playoffs.

It proved to be their second successive loss on home soil and came off the back of a run of 15 games unbeaten in Oslo.

Sunday’s Nations League Group B1 encounter with Romania is likely to be another serious test for Norway and the visitors offer a lot of value at 15/4 to claim the spoils.

Romania top the group with four points from their opening two games and claimed an impressive 3-2 win at Austria in September.

Both Teams to Score in Relegation Battle

Sunday’s clash between Croatia and Sweden in Zagreb could prove decisive in who suffers relegation from League A Group A3.

Both nations are yet to pick up a single point in the 2020-21 campaign after falling to successive defeats against France and Portugal.

Croatia are not quite the side they were when reaching the 2018 World Cup final, but they should still have too much for Sweden.

With relegation on the agenda, it should prove to be a rather competitive game in the Croatian capital and backing both teams to score at 10/11 looks the way to go.

Croatia have a strong record on home soil, losing just once at home since 2013, but it’s worth noting they have managed just one clean sheet in their last eight, while Sweden have bagged in six of their last seven on the road.

These two nations haven’t met for almost nine years, but they both registered in the most recent meeting as Sweden ran out 3-1 winners at the Stadion Maksimir in February 2012.
