On October 14, the Finnish national team will host the Irish. Will the hosts be able to strengthen their positions in the League of Nations? – you will find the answer in our forecast.
Over the past few years, Markku Kanerva’s charges have improved greatly. For the first time in their history, they managed to reach Euro 2020 through qualification.
Suomi looks very good in the League of Nations. They have six scored points in three fights. Only in the starting round did the team lose to the Wales national team (0: 1), and then managed to outplay the Irish national team (1: 0) and Bulgaria (2: 0). Finland is currently in second place in its quartet, one point behind the leader of Wales.
Stephen Kenny’s charges are not in the best mood right now. The team failed to qualify for the European Championship, losing to the Slovaks in the penalty shootout.
In the framework of the League of Nations, three matches have never been won. The national team of Ireland drew with Wales (0: 0), Bulgaria (1: 1) and lost to the national team of Finland (0: 1). These results allowed us to gain a foothold in the third position in our group, ahead of the worst team of the quartet – Bulgaria by only one point.
The teams met among themselves for the last time a month ago. Finland won 1-0
Finland won 8 of their last 10 home matches
Ireland won 1 of 10 away matches
06.09.20 Ireland Finland 0: 1
For the hosts, this match is of utmost importance in the fight for the first place in the group. It is imperative to defeat the Irish to continue the pursuit of Wales. We believe that this could play a cruel joke on Suomi.
Don’t underestimate the Irish. The team is very dangerous in counterattacks and set pieces. We believe that the guests, due to their ability to endure, will still catch their opponent on a counterattack and get three points so important to themselves and improve their state of affairs in the League of Nations.
Our prediction is a victory for the Irish national team and we bet on this on the Winline line with a coefficient of 3.30.
