World champions France have just two points from their opening four games and will be relegated to the B-tier if they are beaten by Austria, who themselves will tumble into the relegation spot with a defeat.

Maignan; Pavard, Kounde, Varane, Mendy; Guendouzi, Tchouameni, Camavinga; Griezmann; Mbappe, Giroud.

France vs Austria score prediction: 2-0

A win will send Denmark through to the next stage of the competition, but Croatia could take top spot with a victory of their own. The Danes will meet France later this week and so would like to get the job done here.

Croatia vs Denmark score prediction: 1-1

The Dutch are flying at the top of group 4 and will fancy themselves as favourites against a Poland side whose focus is more on making sure they do not tumble below Wales and into the relegation spot.

Poland vs The Netherlands score prediction: 1-3

Belgium are three points behind The Netherlands, who they will meet on Sunday, and they’ll expect a win against a Wales side who sit bottom of Group 4 with one solitary point. If Poland get anything from their game, Wales are done.

Belgium vs Wales score prediction: 3-0

The Euro 2020 finalists square off on Friday in a battle for survival. England are bottom with two points and will be relegated if Italy secure all three.

Top-of-the-table Hungary come into this one just a single point ahead of Germany and will need a big result here is they are to keep their spot by the end of the night.

Neuer; Henrichs, Rudiger, Sule, Raum; Kimmich, Gundogan; Gnabry, Muller, Sane; Werner.

Spain vs Switzerland score prediction: 2-0

Portugal are one point behind leaders Spain, while the Czech Republic are one point above bottom side Switzerland. All to play for.

Both Scotland and Ireland are in with a shout of winning promotion to the A-tier but neither can afford to slip up here to keep their dreams alive – particularly Ireland, who are two points behind Scotland having played one game more.

Scotland vs Ireland score prediction: 2-1

Greece have already secured top spot in this C-tier group so the focus is now on avoiding relegation. Northern Ireland are third out of four, but level on points with bottom-side Cyprus.
