Friday's European Championship qualifying predictions including Netherlands vs. France

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

Estonia vs. Azerbaijan (Friday, 5.00pm)

The bottom two nations in Group F of Euro 2024 qualifying square off at Le Coq Arena in Tallinn on Friday as Estonia play host to Azerbaijan.

These two teams could not be separated in their last meeting in June as they were forced to share the spoils in a 1-1 draw in Baku.

We say: Estonia 1-2 Azerbaijan

A closely-fought contest between two evenly-matched nations could be on the cards on Friday, but considering Estonia's recent troubles in defence and Azerbaijan's solid performances against Belgium and Jordan last time out, we believe that the visitors will do enough to claim a narrow victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Netherlands vs. France (Friday, 7.45pm)

Requiring just one more victory to book a table at Euro 2024 with two games to spare, France trek to Amsterdam to face fellow Group B hopefuls Netherlands on Friday evening.

Les Bleus have blown the competition out of the water so far, taking 15 points from a possible 15, while Oranje sit six points worse off than their upcoming opponents, albeit with a game in hand.

We say: Netherlands 0-2 France

Even with untimely defensive concerns rearing their ugly heads, France have kept every single one of their Group B foes at bay so far and should be backed to do so again versus a noticeably thin Netherlands squad.

With the chance to seal qualification with two games to spare also serving as an added incentive, Les Bleus ought to silence the Amsterdam faithful and snap Oranje's golden streak at home to ensure a place in Germany next summer.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Rep. Ireland vs. Greece (Friday, 7.45pm)

The Republic of Ireland's wafer-thin chances of Euro 2024 qualification could be wiped out on Friday, when the Boys in Green host Greece in Group B at the Aviva Stadium.

The fourth-placed hosts sit one spot and six points worse off than their upcoming opponents, who are guaranteed a playoff spot at the very least.

We say: Republic of Ireland 1-1 Greece

A draw will not be sufficient to keep Ireland's top-two hopes alive if the Netherlands can put France to the sword, and the Ferguson-led Boys in Green ought to go for broke on a ground where they traditionally have few problems finding the back of the net.

Greece's dissatisfactory run on the road also serves as a reason for Irish optimism, but Poyet's resilient side are not to be taken lightly and can hold Kenny's men to a point, which may or may not condemn them to their fate.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Austria vs. Belgium (Friday, 7.45pm)

The top two teams in Group F of Euro 2024 qualifying go head to head at the Ernst Happel Stadion on Friday as Austria play host to Belgium.

Both nations are sitting on 13 points after five matches and know that a victory here will book their place at next year's tournament in Germany.

We say: Austria 1-2 Belgium

An entertaining Group F contest could in store on Friday between two nations who will want to clinch qualification for Euro 2024 with a victory and get the job done with two games to spare.

Both teams are missing a few key players, but we believe that Belgium have the edge in the final third, particular with an in-form Lukaku set to lead the line, and they should outscore the hosts en route to claiming maximum points.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Iceland vs. Luxembourg (Friday, 7.45pm)

Luxembourg will be bidding to move onto 13 points in their Euro 2024 qualification section when they travel to Iceland on Friday night.

The visitors have enjoyed a strong Group J campaign to date, sitting third in the table, three points behind second-placed Slovakia, while Iceland are fifth in the section on six points.

We say: Iceland 1-1 Luxembourg

This is a really difficult match to call, as it is tough to know exactly what to expect from each side. It would not be a surprise to see a home or indeed an away win, but we just have a feeling that a cagey affair will end with the spoils being shared.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Portugal vs. Slovakia (Friday, 7.45pm)

Portugal will welcome Slovakia on Friday evening knowing that a victory would see them secure their spot in next summer's European Championship finals with three games to spare.

An excellent campaign to date has left Roberto Martinez's side at the top of Group J on 18 points, while Slovakia are second in the section, picking up 13 points from their opening six matches.

We say: Portugal 2-0 Slovakia

Slovakia are a national team to be respected, and they are more than capable of picking up a strong result on Friday evening. Portugal are on a roll at the moment, though, and we are expecting Martinez's side to make it seven wins from seven in the section courtesy of a comfortable victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Liechtenstein's search for their first points in Group J will continue on Friday evening when they host Bosnia-Herzegovina in a Euro 2024 qualification fixture.

The home side are bottom of the section, losing all six of their matches thus far, while Bosnia sit fourth, collecting six points from their opening six games in the qualification process.

We say: Liechtenstein 0-2 Bosnia-Herzegovina

Bosnia-Herzegovina have not exactly been impressive in the section, and they will be missing some important players for Friday's match, but we are still expecting the visitors to be too strong for Liechtenstein, backing them to win relatively comfortably here.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
