Austria vs Northern Ireland predictions and UEFA Nations League betting tips for this week’s fixture. Kick-off is 7:45pm on Friday 12th October and our tipster has selected three recommended bets.
This fixture pits two sides against each other go into this international break with no points in the Nations League after they both lost to Bosnia Herzegovina in September. Whilst the home nation were able to score and eventually lost 2-1, Austria were unable to find the net in a 1-0 loss. We are expecting a similar lack of goals in this fixture with both sides’ priority remaining firm at the back. The first of our Austria vs Northern Ireland predictions is for under 1.5 goals to be scored. This can be found at a price of 7/4 with Betfair.
Our second Austria vs Northern Ireland tip comes from looking at the squads the two sides have selected. Whilst they are both defence-heavy there is one player who can really influence a game of this stature. Marko Arnautovic has been in incredible form since he moved to West Ham has has score 15 goals from wide positions since the summer of 2017 when his transfer was confirmed and has scored 19 international goals. The only issue is the attacker’s injury issues which have plagued him this season and he may still be played despite his knee problems. Arnautovic to score at any time is at 6/5 with William Hill.
We have already talked about the defensive capabilities and preferences of the two sides and this comes into consideration when looking at our final Austria vs Northern Ireland prediction. Although we can’t see the fixture being a stalemate, one goal could make the difference and the home crowd could sway the result. We are going with a 1-0 win for Austria on Friday night to match our first two predictions. Austria to win 1-0 is at 4/1 with Bet365.
