Our Betting Tips

Despite Northern Ireland sitting three-points clear at the top of group C, it is Germany who popular sportsbooks make as clear favourites for the three-points in Belfast. That may have something to do with Germany’s record of having scored three or more goals in their last four visits to the Northern Irish city. It is also the reason we fancy this contest to be one that witnesses plenty of goal mouth action as Northern Ireland themselves are yet to fail to find the back of the net in the competition.

OVER 3.5 GOALS

Northern Ireland may well top group C, but they have been a little slow out of the blocks at time and needing a second half revival to keep their unbeaten campaign on the go. Of the seven goals Michael O’Neill’s men have scored in their four group games so far, only one has come in the first half. It is a different story for Germany who have led at the break in their four qualifying games and a reason why popular online betting sites are swaying towards the Germans.

GERMANY TO WIN THE FIRST HALF

Yes, this goes against the grain a little bit but with the odds on offer for covering both the draw and home win, you will see it makes perfect sense. After all, Northern Ireland do possess a 100% record in qualifying as well as recording a home friendly win over Luxemburg on Thursday night. Germany come into the game having lost on home soil to the Netherlands despite leading 1-0 at the break with the risk that confidence is low among Joachim Löw’s men.

Statistics

Head to Head

Look away now Northern Ireland fans as the head to head record makes pretty grim reading. Germany have won the last seven meetings between the two including a 3-1 win on their last trip to Northern Ireland in October 2017. 1983 was the last time the home registered a win over the Germans with Northern Ireland boasting just two wins, four draws and eleven losses to their opponents.

Stats

  • Northern Ireland are the only side yet to lose a game in group, boasting four wins from four.
  • The first ever meeting between the two saw a 2-2 draw played out at the 1958 World Cup.
  • You have to go back to November 1983 for the last time Northern Ireland defeated Germany.
  • Germany have scored three or more goals in their last four trips to Belfast.

Our Prediction for Northern Ireland vs Germany

Match to finish a draw

You have to go back to 1996 for the last time these two drew but Northern Ireland are the strongest outfit under Michael O’Neill we have seen for a long time. Germany are often unpredictable, capable of a world class performance but also capable of a blow up and a point will actually represent a good result for both these sides in their quest to qualify for Euro 2020.
