Attention switches to the international arena this week, with the latest round of World Cup qualifiers. There is no blockbuster match to fire the imagination in Europe, but Holland, Italy, Czech Republic and Euro 2004 champions Greece are all in action. Greece's visit to bitter rivals Turkey looks one of the closest games on tonight's list. The reverse fixture in September ended 0-0 and a similar scoreline looks likely tonight. Low goals looks a good bet, allied to a smaller wager on the draw. The Czech Republic are at unbackable odds for their home match against Andorra. They have been given a four-goal start in the betting and could exceed that margin, having won the away fixture 4-0 in March. They might take off some of their better players once they are safely in the lead, however, and it doesn't look a match to bet on. Holland look probable winners at home to Romania, having won the reverse fixture 2-0 two months ago. Romania are more dangerous than they appear, however, and this is another match to avoid. For the best bets on the bigger names, look no further than Russia and Ireland - who host Latvia and Israel respectively - and Italy for their visit to Norway. Both the Russians and Irish have exemplary home records. Russia are unbeaten in 10 competitive games, with seven wins and three draws, while Ireland have won eight of their past 10. Their only home defeat in that period came in 2002 against Switzerland, a better team than Israel, which precipitated the end of Mick McCarthy's reign as manager. Italy aren't certainties away to Norway, but equally they rate better than a 2.20 chance and there are few better-value bets around this weekend. A safer alternative is to take them on the handicap. The lower-rated teams who might cause an upset this week include Bulgaria, Iceland and Belarus. Bulgaria have dropped off the pace in group eight, but they have the players to trouble Croatia at home. Until their defeat by Sweden in March, Bulgaria were undefeated in 11 home games and they look a reasonable bet at odds-against on the handicap, despite giving up a start. Iceland look capable of holding Hungary at home and it's a pity that the handicap isn't available on this evenly matched contest. Hungary won the reverse fixture 3-2 but Iceland had led 1-0 and the winning goal did not arrive until the 80th minute. Iceland are well worth considering, but a draw rates highly. Belarus could be a decent bet in midweek against Scotland, even if new Scotland manager Walter Smith scores his first win against Moldova tonight. Again, the handicap would be the preferred option for a bet against Scotland for the trip to Belarus. South America stages the week's biggest clash - the midweek showdown between Argentina and Brazil. It is worth noting that, taking out games on neutral territory, the last five games between these great rivals have been won by the home team. Argentina, who went so close to beating Brazil in last year's Copa America final in Peru, look the best bet. Best homes: Russia, Ireland, Argentina. Best aways: Italy. High goals: Russia v Latvia, Ireland v Israel, Portugal v Slovakia. Low goals: Bulgaria v Croatia, Turkey v Greece, Netherlands v Romania.
