Monday's European Championship qualifying predictions including Bosnia vs. Portugal

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's European Championship qualifying fixtures, including Bosnia vs. Portugal.

Azerbaijan vs. Austria (Monday, 5.00pm)

Requiring three more points to ensure their place at Euro 2024, Austria meet Azerbaijan at Tofiq Bahramov Stadium on Monday evening.

While the visitors could even qualify with a draw if other results go their way, their hosts only registered a first Group F win on Friday.

We say: Azerbaijan 1-2 Austria

Emerging from Tofiq Bahramov Stadium with maximum points is never a straightforward task for any visiting side, so Austria may only secure a qualification-clenching victory by a one-goal margin on Monday. As several Austrian stars are either ruled out or struggling with injury, some fringe players will have to step up and seal their nation's place at the Euros.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Gibraltar vs. Rep. Ireland (Monday, 7.45pm)

The Estadio Algarve in Portugal plays host to a Euro 2024 qualifying basement battle on Monday, as Gibraltar pit their wits against the Republic of Ireland in Group B.

Stephen Kenny's side were condemned to finish outside the bottom two with a 2-0 loss to Greece last time out, while the 'hosts' were thumped 4-0 in a friendly by Wales.

We say: Gibraltar 0-2 Republic of Ireland

With the added disadvantage of not playing at their regular headquarters, a sixth defeat from six is surely on the cards for Gibraltar, whose unsightly goalless streak is also set to continue at the Estadio Algarve.

Confidence is hardly high in the Irish camp either, and calls for Kenny to be given the boot will only grow louder if Gibraltar can pull off a sensational giant killing, but the Boys in Green should get the job done with minimal fuss.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Greece vs. Netherlands (Monday, 7.45pm)

At risk of missing out on a top-two finish in Euro 2024 qualifying Group B, the Netherlands head to the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens to meet Greece on Monday evening.

Oranje trail their hosts by three points in the rankings, and Gus Poyet's side could ensure a top-two finish by stunning their morale-depleted visitors by at least four goals on home soil.

We say: Greece 1-2 Netherlands

The Netherlands may have put three past Greece without reply a few weeks ago, but Poyet's troupe ought to be a different proposition in front of their own fans, especially with so much at stake in Group B.

However, a handful of Koeman's players still did themselves justice in the loss to France, and with a few alterations here and there, we expect Oranje to bring Greece crashing back down to earth and keep their hopes of a top-two ranking alive.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Belgium vs. Sweden (Monday, 7.45pm)

Having just sealed their place at Euro 2024, Group F leaders Belgium celebrate by welcoming Sweden to Brussels on Monday evening.

While the Red Devils are already making plans for next summer's finals, their Swedish counterparts must win and hope Austria slip up in Azerbaijan.

We say: Belgium 1-0 Sweden

As Sweden are missing their star striker and have scored just once in three previous games against Group F's top two - each of which ended in defeat - their slim hopes of catching Belgium and Austria will be ended. The Blagult cannot compete toe-to-toe with a vibrant Belgian side, but if the hosts make changes after sealing qualification it could be a close-fought encounter.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Iceland vs. Liechtenstein (Monday, 7.45pm)

Iceland will be bidding to keep their slim hopes of qualifying for Euro 2024 alive when they welcome Liechtenstein in Group J on Monday night.

The hosts are fifth in the section on seven points, six points behind second-placed Slovakia with three games left, while Liechtenstein are rooted to the bottom of the division on zero points.

We say: Iceland 2-0 Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein have managed to keep the scores down since their change of manager in June, so we are not expecting the visitors to be on the end of a heavy loss on Monday, but it is very difficult to back anything other than an Iceland win here.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 3.5 goals.

Bosnia H'vina vs. Portugal (Monday, 7.45pm)

Already-qualified Portugal will be bidding to make it eight straight wins in Group J when they continue their Euro 2024 qualification campaign against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday night.

Portugal's position in the finals was secured courtesy of a 3-2 success over Slovakia on Friday, while Bosnia-Herzegovina still have a chance of finishing second, currently sitting fourth in the section, four points behind second-placed Slovakia on the same number of matches.

We say: Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-2 Portugal

Portugal are unlikely to be at full-strength for this match, but Martinez has such a talented squad, and the players that come in will be desperate to impress the manager. Bosnia-Herzegovina are capable of picking up a positive result here, but we are backing the visitors to shade Monday's contest.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Luxembourg vs. Slovakia (Monday, 7.45pm)

Third will host second in Group J on Monday evening, with Luxembourg and Slovakia battling to join section leaders Portugal in qualifying for next summer's European Championship.

Luxembourg have picked up 11 points from their seven matches in the section to sit in third position, while Slovakia have 13 points from their seven games, which has left them in second spot.

We say: Luxembourg 1-2 Slovakia

Slovakia will have been pleased with their performance against Portugal last time out, and if they can tighten up defensively, Calzona's side should win here. Luxembourg deserve a lot of respect for their performances in the section, but we are backing an away success on Monday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
