Northern Ireland vs Estonia Match Preview
Estonia travel to Belfast for their EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash on Thursday looking to build on two wins earned over the rivals back in 2011, where they snatched a 1-2 in Northern Ireland. They’ve been in fine form lately and promise a great challenge at the back before anything else.
Indeed, Sinisargid have beaten Greece (0-1) in Nations League and built on it with solid displays in friendlies against Finland (1-2) and Iceland (0-0). They’ve been proving themselves a tough side and although they’ve seen an underwhelming Nations League campaign, we do feel they’ll prove such a point once again.
Northern Ireland have, on the other hand, seen some very narrow clashes but still failed to earn any points in a group with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Austria, dropping into the Nations League C. They escaped loss just once in last four outings as they held Republic of Ireland to a goalless draw along the way, now hoping from more at Windsor Park.
Indeed, Green and White Army have been a tougher side to beat at home ground and narrow margins made all the difference against both Bosnia (1-2) and Austria (1-2), beating Korea Republic (2-1) and Israel (3-0) in friendlies along the way.
We will thus back them to secure all three points and keep up such a streak against unpredictable visitors, sticking with Northern Ireland to win to Nil at Evens with bet365 – which feels like the best way to approach to the fixture.
We don’t feel we’re in for a very one-sided contest and we should be in for a narrow contest in Belfast as we also go for a low-scoring fixture with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with Paddy Power. We’ve gotten used to such clashes on both ends and we should now be in for more of the same.
