Michael O’Neil’s side couldn’t have hoped for better from their opening four fixtures. Northern Ireland took maximum points from home and away fixtures with Belarus and Estonia to put them in pole position. Having lost to Germany and the Netherlands since, Northern Ireland now have tow games remaining to bridge the three-point gap.
The Netherlands are level on points with Germany with two qualifiers remaining. A win over Northern Ireland will guarantee their progression to next summer’s tournament and open the door for Germany to join them. No side has scored more or conceded fewer than the Netherlands in Group C.
The Dutch frontman has already scored six goals in six qualifiers for the Netherlands. No player in group C has scored more goals with two games remaining. He has scored in four of their six games including a brace against Northern Ireland.
Depay to score first – 15/4 – BET HERE.
Northern Ireland have to keep things tight if they are to have a chance of snatching at least a point. They held the Netherlands at bay for 80 minutes away from home and have conceded just seven goals so far, level with Germany. With just eight scored against the tightest defence in the group, they’ll be hard pushed to score more than once.
Under 2.5 goals – 19/20 – BET HERE.
It’s going to be a tight game with Northern Ireland defending for long periods. The Northern Irish are dangerous from set pieces and are most likely to find a way through from a dead ball situation.
1-1 – 8/1 – BET HERE.
