Rufat Dadashov (Azerbaijan) to score v Malta

Azerbaijan are comfortably the shortest-priced favourite of all teams involved in the Nations League on Sunday, so it’s worth backing their striker to hit the net.

Dadasov has scored five goals in his last five appearances for Preussen Munster in the third tier of German football, and scored four goals in 16 matches for his national team in 2013, before his recall for this round of fixtures.

Malta lost 3-1 at Kosovo on Thursday, having also lost 3-0, 5-0 and 3-1 at Slovakia, Finland and Faroe Islands in their last six away games. Chances are bound to come along for the hosts’ striker.

Krzysztof Piatek (Poland) to score v Italy

Having successfully tipped Piatek to score for Genoa for four consecutive weeks, it would seem disloyal to ignore him now that he’s in a Poland shirt.

Not that there is any reason to believe that he will let us down. The 23-year-old is an unqualified revelation, netting in every one of his seven appearances at club level before giving his national side the lead inside 20 minutes of their game against Portugal on Thursday.

His next obstacle is the nation where he plays his domestic football, Italy, who are without a clean sheet in six matches under Roberto Mancini.

Artem Dzyuba (Russia) to score v Turkey

Turkey have conceded twice in six of their last seven away games, so backing a Russian goalscorer for Sunday’s Nations League match makes sense.

And, having scored six goals in his last 10 appearances for his national team, Dzyuba is the man to side with.

The 30-year-old scored in his last match for Zenit before this international break, and will benefit from spearheading a supply line featuring Aleksandr Golovin and Denis Cheryshev.

Andre Silva (Portugal) to score v Scotland

Silva has been one of the surprise packagaes of the La Liga season – scoring seven goals in eight league matches for table-toppers Sevilla – and he’s now translated that form onto the international stage.

The 22-year-old netted in Portugal’s 3-2 win in Poland on Thursday evening, and has the perfect opportunity to extend his impressive run at Hampden Park on Sunday.

Scotland beat Albania 2-0 in their last home match, but had previously conceded in consecutive home games against the Netherlands and Costa Rica before being hammered 4-0 by Belgium.
