England v San Marino Prediction 5th September 201531st August 2015 / lee
England v San Marino Euro 2016 Qualifiers, 5th September
With Euro 2016 qualification all but secured (they are guaranteed at least third place in Group E) the Three Lions are really only gunning to achieve a 100% record in the group. Six games down, six wins and a trip to San Marino should see them make it seven from seven. England go as 1/100 odds on favourites, with the draw at 40/1 and San Marino 100/1 to pick up the three points. It’s a game for alternative markets and not the outright market.
It is going to be worth enjoying some in-play betting on this one and following the action with the likes of the Next Goal, Match Goals, Match Corners, Half-Time Result and Full-Time Result markets at Bet365.

England v San Marino Betting Tips
It’s been a comfortable ride than for England so far, ticking along at a rate of three goals per game and having conceded just the three. They are guaranteed to at least finish third in the group, but with them already holding a six-point lead over second-placed Switzerland, the Three Lions should be topping the group unless there’s some massive late drama to come. England faced San Marino back on October 9th last year and they breezed to a 5-0 win. The competitive head to head between the two nations stands at 5-0 in England’s favour.
England have been to San Marino twice before and hold a 15-1 aggregate score advantage from those five visits. In total from the six previous meetings, England hold a 31-1 aggregate so you can expect some goals. They have managed at least five goals in each of their previous meetings with San Marino as well and you can shoot for an England 5-0 correct score for a price of 9/2, which is just a bit longer than a 4-0 and 6-0 result which are trading at 5/1.
Obviously going to be worth eyeing up the goalscorer markets here where Wayne Rooney is 2/11 anytime goalscorer favourite (11/5 First Goalscorer), with Harry Kane at 1/4 and offering more value is the likes of Jamie Vardy and Raheem Sterling at 4/9 with Bet365. A clean sheet is pretty probable too, with San Marino yet to have scored in the group. The Three Lions have posted a W8 D2 record in their last ten matches played (competitive and friendly) and with three wins on the road in the group so far, this should be easy.
So no goals so far in qualification for San Marino, but they did earn a point in 0-0 draw against Estonia at home, which was a bit of a surprise. That has been the only match in their last seven in which they have managed to avoid defeat. The last goal that they scored was against Poland in 2013. Since a win in April 2004 against Liechtenstein, San Marion have gone on a 65 match winless streak, losing 64 of those. Clearly not a threat then are the nation who are ranked 192nd in the world. It’s along 11/2 shot that both teams score in the game.
Who will win – England v San Marino Predictions
A non-contest really, but good for England to game a game under their belt ahead of meeting Switzerland. The Three Lions should come away with a comfortable clean sheet victory and it’s worth looking around the 5-0 mark which is about the average. Enjoy live in-play betting on the match.
