Andorra vs England: Plastic pitch may prevent big win

Andorra vs England: Plastic pitch may prevent big win

Kick-off: 1945, 09/10/2021

Stadium: Estadi Nacional

TV: ITV

England should have little trouble moving a step closer to qualifying for next year’s World Cup when visiting Andorra this weekend.

The Three Lions have won all five of their previous meetings with the Group I minnows by an aggregate score of 20-0, although the away games have only been 2-0 and 3-0.

That points us towards taking 6/4 for Gareth Southgate’s side to prevail 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 here for our first Andorra vs England prediction.

A Look At Andorra’s Betting Odds

Andorra kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 home loss to Albania before going down 3-0 to Poland in Warsaw.

The Tricolours did manage to grab a late consolation goal in a 4-1 defeat by Hungary at this venue to complete the March triple-header.

Last month’s international break began with a 2-0 triumph over fellow strugglers San Marino, with Norway-based midfielder Marc Vales bagging a brace.

A 4-0 drubbing by England at Wembley brought them back down to earth, but head coach Koldo Alvarez will have been encouraged by a 2-1 defeat in Hungary.

The hosts have been just 1-0 behind at half-time in four of their five losing qualifiers so far and 5/2 for that to happen again here appeals from the Andorra vs England odds.

Playing on a much-maligned artificial surface at Estadi Nacional always takes a bit of getting used to, so an early deluge of goals is not anticipated.

A Look At England’s Betting Odds

England’s 100 per cent record in this section came to an end in Poland last time out, when Harry Kane’s 72nd-minute opener was cancelled out in stoppage time.

Southgate’s side are still sitting comfortably at the top of the table with a four-point cushion, though.

They beat San Marino 5-0 and Albania 2-0 before scrambling to a 2-1 victory over Poland at Wembley.

A 4-0 triumph away to Hungary was probably the pick of their performances to date, with Andorra then brushed aside by the same scoreline.

Harry Kane is just one behind Wayne Rooney’s record tally of 37 competitive goals for England after netting in eight such matches this year.

However, 13/8 for him to break the deadlock is a touch stingy to feature in our Andorra vs England betting tips.

We prefer 7/2 for Jesse Lingard, who hit a double versus Andorra in London and has always served Southgate well.

“I’ve been with England for many years and I’ve seen camps change over the years, but at the moment I think the camps I’ve been at now are one of the best,” said the Manchester United ace.

“The togetherness and the team spirit, Gareth’s really got us set up right. The games we’re going into, there’s real confidence and we’re trying to obviously get through the qualifiers.”
