Georgia v Kazakhstan

League D, Group 1, 1700 GMT

Georgia have already been promoted to League C
Georgia have already been promoted to League C

Georgia will line-up in League C next time out after they wrapped up promotion, but they will be eager to do so with an unbeaten record.

The hosts have won four and drawn the other, alongside hitting the net ten times, as they sailed to League C in fairly comfortable fashion.

Despite this result doing little to influence the final standings, it is still set to be a competitive fixture and one filled with cards given the refereeing appointment.

Cards in the Nations League seem to depend on who the referee is, with some significantly stricter than others. Portugal's Tiago Martins has already highlighted how he isn't afraid to show a card, with 75 yellows and five reds in 13 games this season.

There's been 36 yellows and three reds in the six Liga NOS games he has overseen, alongside eight yellow cards in Hajduk Split's 0-0 draw with FCSB in Europa League qualifying.

Martins has also demonstrated that he carries his strict style over to internationals, with five yellows in a friendly between France and Iceland last month.

The teams involved also sit quite high on the card count in this competition. Georgia's 1-1 draw with Andorra saw five yellows, with their 3-0 win over the same opponent seeing the same amount alongside a straight red.

Kazakhstan's 4-0 win over Andorra brought 55 booking points, and the 1-1 draw with Latvia had four yellows.

At the odds available, bookings and cards is the avenue to explore in this one.

Best bet: 60+ booking points at 4/1


Denmark v Republic of Ireland

League B, Group 4, 1945 GMT

Republic of Ireland have been relegated to League C
Republic of Ireland have been relegated to League C

Another game where the result will have no impact on final standings, but Ireland will be wanting to upset the odds as they look to avoid finishing their campaign without a single win.

They provided little inspiration in their 0-0 draw with Northern Ireland in their last game, and questions continue to surround Martin O'Neill with just one win in their last ten internationals.

Discipline has been a bit of an issue for his side in this tournament. Their last two matches have seen them shown seven yellow cards, which includes four in their draw with Denmark at the Aviva Stadium.

Teams do tend to pick up cards when they take on the Danes. The opposition have picked up at least two yellows in the last four games against Denmark, and that trend should continue here.

Aliyar Agayev has shown a combined 14 yellows in his last two Azerbaijan Premyer Liqasi games, alongside a total of eleven in three European club competitions this season.

It could spell trouble for someone like Kevin Long, who picked up a caution in Ireland's last Nations League game. The defender also has three yellows in six starts on his record at Burnley.

Best bet: Kevin Long to be shown a card at 6/1


Germany v Netherlands

League A, Group 1, 1945 GMT

Germany have been relegated in the UEFA Nations League
Germany have struggled in the last 12 months

Germany followed up their horrendous display at the World Cup with relegation in the Nations League, and victory for the visitors will see them join England, Portugal and Switzerland at the finals next summer.

This should be a fantastic encounter to watch. The Netherlands will be eager for victory following years of disappointment, while Germany will be desperate to stop their rivals from advancing.

The Netherlands dominated the scoreline the last time these met, with a 3-0 victory in Amsterdam coming despite having just 41% possession.

Memphis Depay carried their biggest threat with five shots on goal, the highest amount out of anyone on the pitch, two of which were on target.

He's 15/8 with Sky Bet to do the same again here, although adding in Ryan Babel to have at least one boosts that to 4s which looks more appealing.

Both players managed at least two shots on target in their 2-0 win over France in their last Nations League game, with Depay finding the net.

Ronald Koeman's men have highlighted how they can win with or without the majority of possession, and they represent decent value at a general price of 3/1 to wrap up the three points here.

Best bet: Memphis Depay 2+ shots on target and Ryan Babel 1+ shots on target at 4/1


Odds correct at 0940 GMT (19/11/18)
