Six football matches take place across Europe on the evening of Friday 25th March 2011 as the Qualification for UEFA Euro 2012 continues.
Austria v Belgium – Group A – Kick-Off (CET) 20:30
Austria currently sit second in Group A, five points behind Germany, though they have a game in hand. Belgium are three points back in fourth place, meaning that both teams need a win tonight if they are to retain a realistic chance of automatic qualification.
Hungary v Netherlands – Group E – Kick-Off (CET) 20:30
Netherlands lead Group E with a maximum 4 wins from 4 giving them 12 points, while Hungary are second having recorded three wins and a loss, so they’ll be keen to draw level with a home win today.
Serbia v Northern Ireland – Group C – Kick-Off (CET) 20:30
Serbia are 5th and Northern Ireland 4th in the tricky Group C, which also features Italy, Slovenia and Estonia – and only one point separates the two side, meaning that tonight is a must-win game, or, rather, a can’t-lose match.
Slovenia v Italy – Group C – Kick-Off (CET) 20:45
2nd v 1st takes place in group C as Slovenia take on Group leaders Italy, who are three points ahead at the top of the table. If the azzuri can get a victory tonight, they’ll be strong favourites to win the group and qualify, though a Slovenia victory would throw the race wide open, meaning this could be the match to watch this evening.
Luxembourg v France – Group D – Kick-Off (CET) 21:00
France lead Group D by a point, so they’ll be looking to maintain their advantage away at neighbouring minnows, Luxembourg.
Spain v Czech Republic – Group I – Kick-Off (CET) 21:00
The biggest match of the evening takes place in Spain where the World Champions will seek to continue their excellent 100% record in the qualification for Euro 2012 against second placed Czech Republic. The Czechs can draw level on nine points with Spain if they pick up the away win.
