Forecast and bet on Switzerland – Northern Ireland, statistics, odds. How will the battle for the second line in Group C end? – find out below.
The Red Crusaders are doing great qualifying considering the fact that they have played only four matches. The national team scored eight points and was placed on the second line in group C.
Switzerland began its journey with Victoria over Bulgaria (3: 1), then beat Lithuania (1: 0) and chalked up two draws. Murat Yakin’s wards managed to stop Italy at home (0: 0) and share points with Northern Ireland (0: 0) on the road. Now comes the key moment, as the Swiss take the previous rival at home and have every chance of breaking away from him by six points, though you need to win.
The guys of Ian Baraklaf understood that most likely the first two places would be played by Italy and Switzerland, and their task was to prevent them from doing so. So far, the national team is not doing very well with it, but the efforts are worth noting.
In the final round, Northern Ireland played host to the Swiss, who were more likely to score, but the hosts did their best to keep the draw (0: 0). Now Stephen Davis and the company will try to do something similar, though already at the Stade de Geneve arena. In a word, the team will face a difficult confrontation.
The last face-to-face meeting perfectly showed that, under pressure, Northern Ireland immediately closes in defense and is trying to get at least one point. Ian Baraclaf’s national team is going to visit with the hope of repeating this achievement again, although the chances are few.
Switzerland has everything to close the gap to Italy. The next meeting will take place within the native walls, so Murat Yakin’s charges are clearly in a winning situation. In our opinion, the hosts will take advantage of the rival’s problems and win.
Our forecast is a handicap (-1) for the Swiss national team for a coefficient of 1.60 in 1xbet mobile
We assume that guests will dry the game so as not to be left without anything. The hosts will go on the attack, although the Swiss have not been particularly effective lately, so we suggest paying attention to the total less, especially since the four previous head-to-head meetings ended on the bottom.
Second bet – total under 2.5 goals per 1.76
