On October 13, the Ukrainian youth team will meet with Northern Ireland. In our forecast, you will find out who is more likely to win.
Northern Ireland U21
The Northern Ireland youth team is not impressive in its qualifications for the European Championship. The team has six points scored after eight matches. The last two matches the Irish lost to Denmark (0: 1) and the national team of Finland (2: 3).
Northern Ireland’s biggest problem is attack. In eight matches, they managed to score only six goals.
Ruslan Rotan’s wards still have theoretical chances to qualify for the Euro. The gap from the Romanian national team, which is in second position, is six points. The Ukrainians still have a game to play. If the national team of Ukraine wins all three remaining matches, then you need to wait for misfires from the Romanians.
In the last fight, the Ukrainians managed to outplay their direct competitors with a score (1: 0).
The teams met each other five times. Two wins on the account of the Ukrainian national team and three more matches ended in a draw
Northern Ireland have lost 3 of their last 10 home games
Ukraine squad won 3 of their last 10 away games

We believe that the Northern Ireland national team is capable of providing decent resistance to the Ukrainians. The Ukrainian national team will not have an optimal composition, since Ilya Zabarny and Efim Konoplya went to the location of the main team. The Ukrainians will play exclusively to win, as they need to score three points to keep the intrigue in the fight for the second place. This will lead to the fact that the team will need to open up and the Irish can catch the guests on the counterattack.
In our opinion, taking into account all of the above, an open game with an abundance of scoring opportunities awaits us.
Our forecast is the total over 2.5 goals and we bet on this on the Marathonbet line with a coefficient of 2.00.
