Now all that pesky club football is done and dusted we can properly look forward to Euro 2020, just the 12 months behind schedule. On Wednesday we’ve got a raft of friendlies to get stuck into with England’s depleted squad hosting Austria, Erling Haaland and his Norwegian colleagues taking on Luxembourg while Scotland tackle The Netherlands in what will be a stern test for Steve Clarke’s men.

Finally, we’re off to Germany as Joachim Low’s side tackle Denmark in their preparations for his last hurrah in charge of Die Mannschaft. There’s a couple of one-sided looking games but I think I’ve found both the value and the route to a few winners. So, with the big show on the horizon, let’s get stuck into Wednesday’s action.


6pm: Norway v Luxembourg – Norway (-1)

TV: Sky Sports Red Button

You probably won’t be surprised to read that the 96th-ranked Luxembourg haven’t made it to Euro 2020. If you’ve not been paying attention, you might be more alarmed to learn that Norway and their hulking wonderkid Erling Haaland also missed out, paying the price for too many draws in the qualification process.

Norway have been a little shaky of late and could probably do with a confidence-boosting win. They’ve won just two of their last five games, suffering 3-0 defeats to Turkey and Romania in that run. However, they should be gearing up for their summer holidays in style.

Assuming they can be bothered to turn up for this completely meaningless fixture, Norway should win this comfortably. Luxembourg’s only win in their last six came in that game at the Aviva Stadium, I won’t say any more about that, but that is clearly the exception rather than the rule and we should see Norway beat the (-1) handicap.

7.45pm: Netherlands v Scotland – Netherlands (-1)

TV: Sky Sports Main Event

The Netherlands and Scotland did both make it to Euro 2020 and it will be fascinating to see how Clarke’s crew get on against a superior side. The Netherlands have been picking up recently after a poor start to their 2020/21 campaign.

They managed just one win in their first six games this season but have won four out of five since. Scotland, on the other hand, have been getting worse. I can’t see this being anything other than a protracted defensive training session for The Scots who will be fine-tuning their backline ahead of facing higher-ranked sides at Euro 2020.

I don’t think they’re going to show too much going forward, so are unlikely to net. With the Dutch having most of the play and plenty of pressure, I think they’re good value to beat the handicap again so I’m on The Netherlands (-1) here.

Gareth Southgate

8pm: England v Austria – England (-1)

TV & Online: ITV and ITV Hub

This is another one-sided contest if Paddy’s traders’ prices are anything to go by. England will be without a number of their key men as they take a well earned but brief rest following their participation in the Champions League final last weekend.

However, whoever Gareth Southgate sends out should have enough in the tank to handily beat Austria. With numerous questions surrounding their starting XI, plenty of the Three Lions on display will be eager to impress.

England are in great form and they’ve scored at least two in five of their last six, winning the same number over that period. Austria have won just one over the last four and were pumped 4-0 by Denmark last time out. While The Three Lions will be understrength, I don’t think they’ll be lacking any motivation and I’m backing England (-1) on the handicap.

8pm: Germany v Denmark – Germany to Win

TV: Sky Sports Premier League

Denmark come into this game in great form. They’ve only failed to win in only one of their last nine games, a 4-2 loss to Belgium in the Nations League. Normally you would expect Germany to be big odds on favourites in this game but they’ve been off it recently.

Germany have won four and lost two of their last six, but those two losses were absolutely calamitous. They were pumped 6-0 by Spain before a remarkable 2-1 home loss to North Macedonia. I’m anticipating this game to be closer than you might expect but this is Germany and they (almost) always sort things out ahead of major tournaments. At very generous odds we have to be on the Germany Win here.
