A win is a must for England to secure the top spot

Despite winning six of their eight matches and drawing the other two, England still need a win to guarantee the first spot. As a result, The Three Lions will need to forget their last slump when they drew with Hungary at Wembley which delayed their qualification and play for the win. Hence, Southgate needs to play his most prolific scorers to maintain his team’s average of 2.25 goals per game.

It was a frustrating draw, to say the least of England’s last clash with Hungary. To point out, England had five shots on target and scored once, while Hungary scored from their only shot on goal. As for this game, England have won all of their five h2h matches conceding just one goal in the process. Consequently, we think Southgate will be very clinical in his team’s orders to be very serious and finish the job come Friday. 

Albania with the most difficult task at their hands

Albania kept their slim hopes alive for a second spot finish with a fine away win over Hungary. As a result, The Red and Blacks must beat England and expect Poland to lose points in Andorra. Obviously, that scenario looks very distant to realize but everything is possible in football and surely Albania will enter this match with that mentality.

To explain further, Albania’s away record is three wins and one loss in this group. However, they have never scored in Wembley in two visits and this needs to be their main target. Certainly, coach Edoardo Reja will prepare his team in the right manner nonetheless Albania needs a heroic performance in Wembley.

England vs Albania Key Points

  • At home, England conceded on average 0.5 goals per game in their last four outings
  • In their last five away games, Albania scored on average one goal per game
  • England scored in all of their last ten matches

England vs Albania Prediction

Albania proved in this World Cup qualifying campaign that they can be a very stubborn team. However, in all five meetings with England, the Red and Blacks caused little danger for the Three Lions.

Surely we will see some resilience from Reja’s team we think England have enough quality in their squad to shut off any Albanian surprise. As a result, we think the bookmaker’s favoring of a clear England win is Justified considering the h2h record.

Moreover, England’s experience in crucial matches should be the difference to decide the match in their favor. However, the odds are quite low for an England win hence we will back over 2.5 goals that pay 1.67 at Vbet.
