World Cup Qualifiers Betting And Offers At Ladbrokes

Sports betting enthusiasts can enjoy a big week of World Cup Qualifier action over six days from Thursday 5th October through until Tuesday 10th October with a host of qualifying matches

taking place across the world. For customers in the UK, the games most notable take place in Europe, where the final two games of qualifying take place in each of the nine European groups.

To celebrate what is likely to be a dramatic last two fixtures in the calendar in most groups when nine of the 13 qualifiers for the World Cup finals from Europe will be known, Ladbrokes are offering punters a chance at participating in a couple of promotions.


Let’s take a look at these promotions now before we review the games taking place over the next week or so.

Bet £20 On Virtual Football, Get a Free £5 World Cup Bet

From the 2nd October through until midnight on Sunday 8th October, if you place a total of £20 worth of bets on Virtual Football at Ladbrokes, then you will receive a free bet worth £5 which you can use on World Cup Qualifiers.

Your bet on the World Cup qualifiers must be at odds of even or greater and you will receive your free bet when you have made your £20 worth of bets on Virtual Football almost immediately.

You have three days from the date of issue to use your free bet token and if your free bet wins, then your stake money is not included in any returns that the free bet generates.

5 Team Acca Insurance

Place a bet on an accumulator using any matches from any league (including World Cup Qualifiers) of five selections or more and if your accumulator loses as a result of just one team letting you down, them Ladbrokes will offer you your money back as a free bet up to a maximum bet value of £25.

Each selection in your accumulator must be of odds 1/10 or better and the acca itself must be of odds of 3/1 or better for the offer to apply.

You can use this fantastic value accumulator offer once per day, which means you could use it a total of six times across the six different days of World Cup qualifying action.

Odds Boost Token

Remember too, if you are a customer at Ladbrokes then every day you receive an Odds Boost token which you can use on a bet to improve the odds on it. Although it should be noted that the Odds Boost token can only be used on selected markets at Ladbrokes and it will appear on your bet slip if you can use it on a bet you have added to your slip.

Now that we have had a closer look at a trio of offers at Ladbrokes which can be of great use to you over this week of World Cup action, let’s now take a look at some of the key matches that you could possibly bet on in each of the days.

World Cup Qualifiers 5th to 7th October Inclusive

Thursday 5th October

  • Armenia v Poland
  • Azerbaijan v Czech Republic
  • England v Slovenia
  • Malta v Lithuania
  • Montenegro v Denmark
  • Northern Ireland v Germany
  • Romania v Kazakhstan
  • San Marino v Norway
  • Scotland v Slovakia

The big games of interest here are the key games in England’s group, which sees the Three Lions take on Slovenia, while Scotland take on Slovakia. A win for England confirms them as qualified for Russia and would also help Scotland or Slovakia. Scotland must win against Slovakia to stand a realistic chance of progress, with the Slovakians facing Malta in their final game, while the Scots head to Slovenia.  An interesting match is Northern Ireland against Germany as the Germans have a 100% record in qualifying, but Northern Ireland have already claimed 2nd in that group and so a win here would keep their slim hopes of winning the group alive.

Friday 6th October

  • Georgia v Wales
  • Austria v Serbia
  • Croatia v Finland
  • Italy v Macedonia
  • Kosovo v Ukraine
  • Liechtenstein v Israel
  • Republic of Ireland v Moldova
  • Spain v Albania
  • Turkey v Iceland

Of most interest to British fans here is Wales clash with Georgia, a team they are yet to beat at international level. The Welsh need something from this game with the Republic of Ireland likely to beat Moldova and group leaders Serbia already four points clear in the group, though they face a difficult trip to Austria.  Turkey’s clash with Iceland is another crucial game with both teams harbouring hopes of qualification in a very tough group alongside Ukraine and Croatia.

Saturday 7th October

  • Bosnia-Herzegovina v Belgium
  • Faeroe Islands v Latvia
  • Gibraltar v Estonia
  • Sweden v Luxembourg
  • Andorra v Portugal
  • Belarus v Netherlands
  • Bulgaria v France
  • Cyprus v Greece
  • Switzerland v Hungary

No Home Nations involved on Saturday but there’s some key games including Belgium, who are already qualified, taking on Bosnia-Herzegovina who are frantically trying to earn a play off spot behind them. France’s trip to Bulgaria takes on added meaning following the French team’s 0-0 draw at home to Luxembourg last time out, a result which has let Sweden back into the reckoning. Switzerland take their 100% record and face Hungary still not qualified with Portugal just three points behind and seemingly having three points in the bag from their trip to Andorra.

World Cup Qualifiers 8th to 10th October Inclusive

Sunday 8th October

  • Lithuania v England
  • Slovakia v Malta
  • Slovenia v Scotland
  • Kazahstan v Armenia
  • Poland v Montenegro
  • Denmark v Romania
  • Norway v Northern Ireland
  • Germany v Azerbaijan
  • Czech Republic v San Marino

Depending on results in the last selection of games, key matches here could include Slovenia against Scotland, Denmark taking on Romania and Norway’s match with Northern Ireland, who may need a couple of points to make sure of a spot in the playoffs if they have not already secured it.

Monday 9th October

  • Albania v Italy
  • Macedonia v Liechtenstein
  • Ukraine v Croatia
  • Iceland v Kosovo
  • Israel v Spain
  • Finland v Turkey
  • Serbia v Georgia
  • Wales v Rep of Ireland
  • Moldova v Austria

There are two massive games in prospect on  Monday night as Ukraine take on Croatia in a match that could have a huge impact as to who qualifies out of Group I, with the Iceland v Kosovo match and Finland’s game with Turkey also possibly set to impact that. It will be a packed stadium in Cardiff to see Wales take on the Republic of Ireland with the winner likely to qualify for the playoffs and the loser condemned to missing out on the World Cup completely.

Tuesday 10th October

  • France v Belarus
  • Luxembourg v Bulgaria
  • Portugal v Switzerland
  • Belgium v Cyprus
  • Hungary v Faeroe Islands
  • Greece v Gibraltar
  • Latvia v Andorra
  • Estonia v Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • Netherlands v Sweden

The final selection of games is likely to see some crucial action in Group A with France and Sweden possibly involved in a battle for the top while the Netherlands could possibly challenge either of those teams for second spot in the group. The big game however will come in Lisbon with the Portugal v Switzerland match which if Portugal can win by a big enough margin, will likely see them claim the qualifying spot ahead of Switzerland.
