Northern Ireland Preview – Easy three points for Norn Iron?

When the group was announced, finishing in the top two was always going to be a hard task for Northern Ireland. As expected, Italy and Switzerland have been tussling for top spot. In the last international window in October, Norn Iron were eliminated from the group.

Northern Ireland have picked up just one victory from their six qualifiers, drawing two and losing three of the other five. The Green and White Army started with a 2-0 loss to Italy in Parma before drawing with Bulgaria and beating Lithuania. However, they have taken just one point from a possible nine since then.

Our betting prediction:
Northern Ireland to win to nil

(odds taken 1514 GMT, Thursday 11 November)

Northern Ireland romped to victory when the pair met in Vilnius in September, and Ian Baraclough’s boys will be looking for a similar kind of result on Friday. The hosts are the odds-on favourites at 4/9.

Lithuania Preview – Can the Lithuanians cause an upset?

Lithuania are without doubt the minnows of Group C, and Valdas Ivanauskas’ troops have struggled. After seven games played, the Lithuanians have lost six times, shipping 18 goals along the way.

Lithuania did pick up a shock victory over Bulgaria in Vilnius last month. Fedor Cernych was the hero in that one, scoring two late goals to help Ivanauskas’ side to a surprise 3-1 home win. However, they followed that up with a 4-0 home reverse to Switzerland.
