Match Preview

Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland are currently 4th in Group F with still no victories, 3 draws and a loss. The team still has theoretic chances to get on that second place, but with competitors like Portugal and Israel will be tough. Since the loss to Russia with 0-2, the team managed to record 3 consecutive draws against, Luxembourg, Portugal and Azerbaijan. At home, Northern Ireland are still unbeaten, recording two identical ties with the score 1-1. The team has met Israel just once back in 2009 in International friendly game, and the score was too 1-1. Northern Ireland is priced to win this match @ 3.00, but considering they have a game on Saturday March 23rd against Russia, and 3 days later a game against Israel, we expect their performance to be worse in this match. The draw is priced @ 3.20, which seems like the logical outcome for this game, but seeing Israel shine against Portugal, makes us lean towards their end.

Israel are currently 2nd in the group, tied with Portugal for that spot with 8 points. The team played a wonderful match on Friday, and only the chance and lack of focus did not let them win against Christiano Ronaldo and company. The team conceded a goal early in the game, but managed to not only equalize, but reverse the match in their favor 3-1. However very simple mistakes in defense allowed Portugal to get to the 3-3 in the 93rd minute. So far Israel has no defeat away from home, winning against Luxembourg and tying against Azerbaijan 1-1. The betting odds for Israel to win this match are @ 2.40, therefore our betting tip #1 would be that. We believe that if Israel shows half of what we saw against Portugal, the team will claim the 3 points. If you however are looking for a safer betting option, our betting tip #2 would be for you: Draw No Bet Israel @ 1.61


Betting tip #1: Back Israel to win this match @ 2.40. Their solid performance against Portugal would boost their self-esteem and improve their performance for sure. The second spot would also give them an additional confidence to come out in this match as a favorite.

Betting tip #2: Back Draw No Bet Israel @ 1.61 if you are worried that Northern Ireland can record another home draw, as the team has managed to tie 3 consecutive matches after the initial loss to Russia.
