Albania vs England: World Cup Qualifying Betting Odds and Free Bets

Gareth Southgate celebrated becoming the first man to cross the mark of 50 games as both and England player and manager with Thursday night’s 5-0 win over San Marino.

England were always going to win that match but they’ll face a tougher test on Sunday with their trip to Tirana to take on Albania.

The Three Lions are the odds on favourites though and with Southgate set to recall big names such as Harry Kane, England should justify their price of 2/7 with bet365*.

Nobody can get carried away with a win over San Marino but it was very pleasing to see England move the ball so well and keep the tempo up so well on Thursday night.

For all that Albania are as big as 12/1 with Betfair* to win this, they are on a totally different level to San Marino and will make England work harder for their win.

Southgate will expect his team to have the lion’s share of possession again though so the quality of their passing and movement will be key.

We fully expect England to pass this test and to win in Taverna without conceding at 10/11 with bet365*.

We don’t, however, expect England to score five or, indeed for there to be too many goals at all so take the 10/11 that Virgin Bet* are quoting on under 2.5 goals.

Southgate understands how busy this season has been for the players in his squad so he took the decision to rest players who have played a lot of minutes against San Marino.

Harry Kane, Declan Rice and Harry Maguire are likely to come back into the fold on Sunday while some of those who were subbed off at Wembley should keep their place in the starting XI.

Mason Mount is one such player as Southgate views the Chelsea midfielder as a key cog in the England machine.

Mount will help keep things ticking over in midfield and he also poses an attacking threat so may be worth backing to prove his worth in that regard by scoring the game’s first goal at 9/1 with BetVictor*.
