Belarus News and Form – Can Belarus earn first points?

It is a three-match losing streak that Belarus are on. That is after losing 2-0 at home against Germany on the weekend. They have shipped a total of eight goals in their qualification matches so far. Before the start of these qualification matches, Belarus were unbeaten in seven games. Granted that was partly because of their successful Nations League campaign where they were facing much weaker opposition that what is up against them in this qualification match.

Northern Ireland 1-0 correct score
6/1

Betfair

 

It is a W2 D1 L1 record that they have posted in their last four home fixtures. They weren’t any kind of threat though when it came to trying to stand up to Germany over the weekend. It leaves Belarus with one goal in their last three games now. That lone goal happened in their 2-1 loss at Northern Ireland in their second game in this group. Because of their Nations League group win, Belarus have the cushion of at least a Euro 2020 qualification playoff and that is likely to come into play. They probably aren’t going to break the top two in this group.

  • Northern Ireland are three wins from three in the group
  • The Irish have won just one of their last four road games

 

Northern Ireland News and Form – Can Irish make it four wins in a row?

Northern Ireland made it three wins from three in the group after a win over Estonia on the weekend. That is what they need to keep doing as well. It is so important that they take all points off the weaker teams in the group. That is because the Netherlands and Germany are in this group and are the favourites to take the top two places. Northern Ireland don’t have the cushion of having earned a qualification play-off place via the Nations League, so they have to throw the kitchen sink at getting into the top two in this group.

That is not going to be easy though. Their positive start will have lifted their confidence though. Before the start of this Euro 2020 qualification camping, the Irish were just W1 D1 L4. Their defence is still a little questionable at the moment because they have conceded in three of their last four games. As a positive in the attack, they have scored exactly two goals in each of the last three games. Any kind of narrow away win will do them really, especially with their form not being great. Northern Ireland are W1 D1 L2 in their last four away games, failing to score in three of those.

Belarus v Northern Ireland Predictions

Northern Ireland to win: The Irish just have to keep grinding in these types of games and it is worth backing them to win on the board. This may not be a pretty win for them, but that doesn’t matter. Collecting the win down. Away win by an one-goal margin.
