Euro 2024 Exact Goals betting prediction – games in focus

England vs Malta – Three Lions to Maul Reds

England’s ruthlessness during Euro qualifying has helped them dispatch Italy twice and record big wins over Malta (4-0) and North Macedonia (7-0). The Three Lions are also averaging over four goals a game at home in qualifying Group C.

Next up for Gareth Southgate’s side is a home match against European minnows Malta. England have dispatched Malta 4-0 in their last two encounters, and with several attacking threats through in-form Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka and Ollie Watkins, another goal goal glut could be coming the Three Lions way.

Moreover, Malta has conceded 18 goals in seven qualifiers and we are backing exactly four goals in this clash at Wembley.

France vs Gibraltar – Les Blues to Cruise

France raced to the top of Group B following six consecutive wins and booked their place at Euro 2024. During their Euros qualification campaign, Les Blues have averaged over two goals per game and scored nine of their 13 goals on home soil.

Winless, goalless and having conceded 21 goals, Gibraltar head to Nice with the uphill task of battling the 2022 World Cup finalists on their own patch. In addition, Gibraltar has shipped 13 goals in their last three matches, including back-to-back 4-0 defeats against Wales and Scotland during the October international break.

Didier Deschamps’ side is stacked with world class attacking talent through the likes of Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann. As a result, Les Blues are likely to showcase their attacking qualities at home again on Friday and exactly four goals are expected in this clash.

Belgium vs Azerbaijan – Five alive Red Devils to torment visitors

Belgium remain unbeaten in Euro qualifiers since 2015 following another successful campaign this time around. Goals have been a common theme for the Red Devils throughout qualifying and they have scored three or more in four of their seven Group F matches.

The Belgian’s scoring habits have led to five-goal thrillers in two of their last three games. A 5-0 home win over Estonia was followed by a 3-2 victory in Austria across September and October.

Azerbaijan are the Red Devils' final Group F opponent and Gianni De Biasi’s side head to Western Europe having seen plenty of high-scorers of their own. In two of their last three away matches, Azerbaijan has seen exactly five goals after they suffered big defeats in Austria (4-1) and Sweden (5-0) before a 2-0 win over Estonia.

Belgium vs Azerbaijan has potential for goals at both ends, albeit most could come for the hosts. Another big scoring encounter is expected for these sides, with exactly five goals a solid option.
