International Treble: Wins for Russia and Scotland, and fireworks when Germany face Austria

UEFA EURO - Russia v Czech Republic, Alan Dzagoev

Fabio Capello took the reigns of the Russian national side after an ultimately disappointing Euro 2012 campaign and the Italian's first task is to guide them to the next major tournament in Brazil.

A 2-0 win over Northern Ireland was a good start to World Cup qualifying ahead of Tuesday's trip to Israel and the former England boss will expect his side to build upon that result and take charge of the group.

The hosts continued their winless streak in their last game, a 1-1 draw against Azerbaijan, and are now without a victory in five matches, a worrying development for boss Eli Guttmann and it appears that run could well continue in this game given the quality of their opposition.

Israel have tasted defeat against Germany, Czech Republic and Ukraine this year and with Russia available at a best priced Even money (2.0) with William Hill, the visitors look a well priced selection to start the treble.

Germany are sure to be on the "bankers" list for many multiple bets on Tuesday night, but the short trip to Austria looks as if it could be a high scoring match and over 2.5 goals at 1/2 (1.50) looks a worthy selection.

The last time these two sides met the match ended 6-2 to Germany, and while another eight goal thriller may not be forthcoming, this is a game that promises plenty of action.

Austria's home form has seen three of their last five matches go over this line, with Marcel Koller's side winning three of those, so they will harbour hopes of springing a shock against Low's men and look capable in front of goal.

Germany's last six ma tches have contained three goals or more and Low has spoken of his expectation of improvementfollowing the 3-0 win over the Faroe Islands last week. That clean sheet was Germany's first in six, so there could be goals at both ends.

Craig Levein's side were handed a tough qualification group for the World Cup and a 0-0 draw at home against Serbia, although not a disaster, does increase the pressure on this game.

The Scots must face Belgium, Croatia and Wales over the coming months so three points is imperative against Macedonia and the 47-year-old boss will be desperate for a performance to silence his critics.

The hosts are best priced with William Hill at4/5 (1.80)which looks to offer decent value. Although not brilliant on their travels, Scotland's form at Hampden is good.

The last six matches have seen four wins and two draws and considering Macedonia's away form, there's every chance Levein's side could secure another victory.

The visitors did claim a 0-0 draw against Portugal in May but their last six games on the road have yeilded just two draws and four losses, including defeats against Luxembourg and Armenia. Backing the Scots to secure a win that is vital if they are to have a good chance of qualification, looks a solid addition to the treble at 4/5 (1.80) with William Hill.

Two of these prices are industry bests with William Hill so why not take advantage of their free bet offer and get the best possible return.
