Tip Kosovo - England
Thursday evening had contrasting results for these two countries. England beat Montenegro 7-0 to qualify for the Euro 2020 finals, while Kosovo's hopes of a top two finish ended with defeat in the Czech Republic. England lead the group by three points and with a superior record against the second placed Czechs, they have won the group. They will make changes for this game but that's not likely to weaken their side. Raheem Sterling is likely to make his return and players such as Joe Gomez, Tammy Abraham and James Maddison may get a start. England have won all but one of their qualifiers and beat Kosovo 5-3 in the reverse fixture.
Kosovo's defeat on Thursday left them third in the group four points behind the Czech Republic. They are not out of the tournament though as their Nations League success has taken them into the play-offs. Now they need to start building towards those matches as they bid to reach their first major finals. Home form has been good in this group with wins over the Czech Republic and Montenegro. The 1-1 draw with bottom of the group Bulgaria has proved costly to them. England continue to be in high-scoring form with 13 in their last two internationals. This might not be so easy but England can get the away win.

Conclusion Kosovo - England
England have won the group but will want to keep in winning ways. They will make changes for this game but have a strong squad so it won't weaken them much, if at all. Kosovo can't automatically qualify for the finals but are in the play-offs. They are yet to lose a home game in this group but were held to a draw by Bulgaria. Kosovo only put two goals past Montenegro and struggled to get a recent 1-0 home win over Gibraltar. Go for an away win in this match.
