Spain vs Greece

Spain are set to take-on Greece and will come into the game off the back of a stunning 6-0 demolishing over four-time World Cup winners, Germany.

United’s only representing Spanish player is goalkeeper David De Gea, who has been out of action himself recently, therefore, game time is not a given.

However, should United’s international shot-stopper start in between the sticks later on Thursday, De Gea will be looking to put in a commanding performance having recently lost his domestic spot to Dean Henderson.

Therefore, a good value bet would be for De Gea to keep a clean sheet.

Bet 1: Spain to keep a clean sheet? – Yes.

Scotland vs Austria

The only Scottish representation coming by way of United is midfielder Scott McTominay.

United’s talismanic midfielder plays more regularly as a centre-back for his country and that could see him be in for a busy night.

Austria are no pushovers and with the likes of David Alaba and Marcel Sabitzer among their ranks, McTominay and his Scottish team-mates are expected to spend much of the evening on the back foot.

Bet 2: Scott McTominay to be carded? Yes.

England vs San Marino

Although striker Marcus Rashford is expected to miss out through injury, the in-form defensive United trio of Dean Henderson, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw could all start.

Given England’s overwhelming expectations to win the game, it goes without saying, there is nex to no value in betting in favour of the Three Lions.

However, several popular bookmakers will offer you odds on scenarios that see players bag assists.

A great bet would be for left-back Shaw, who is finally back in the England picture, to bag his seventh assist of the season.

Bet 3: Luke Shaw to get 1 or more assist? Yes.
