Italy Preview – Can Italy continue impressive run?

Group C favourites, Italy, will be bringing an excellent run of results into this group opener against Northern Ireland as the hosts are unbeaten in their last 22 matches in all competitions, which includes no fewer than 17 wins during this sequence.

13 of these 17 victories have also been to nil so Italy will be confident that they can get the job done at their Stadio Ennio Tardini in Parma and also keep a clean sheet against their Irish visitors, especially considering Italy’s excellent form on home soil in World Cup qualifiers.

Italy have never lost a World Cup qualifier on home soil, an impressive stretch which spans a total of 55 matches and the hosts look set to add to this unbeaten record on Thursday night.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

N Ireland Preview – Can Irish avoid defeat?

Northern Ireland face a tough group opener in their World Cup qualifying campaign as they have to travel to play an in-form Italian outfit who have never lost a qualifier at home, while the Irish have managed to pick up just two wins out of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

This average looking run of results include failing to win any of their last five matches, losing four of these with losses incurred against Austria (home and away), Norway (home and away) and Slovakia, while results away from home in World Cup qualifiers have also been ordinary.

Just two wins out of their last 13 matches at this level places Northern Ireland in a tough spot here especially as they’ve also failed to score in seven of these 13 matches too.
