Northern Ireland – Bulgaria. Forecast for the World Cup qualification match (March 31, 2021)
On March 31, within the framework of the third round of the European qualification of the FIFA World Cup at Windsor Park Stadium in Belfast, Group C Northern Ireland – Bulgaria will meet. Which team will score the first points in the current selection? Read about it in our forecast.
Northern Ireland has played only one game in the current qualifier so far, although some teams have already played two matches. But Ian Baraklaff’s wards in terms of freshness will not receive superiority, since after they played a friendly match with the US national team (1: 2).
The “green-white army” started in qualification with a visit to Parma, where they were examined by Italy Roberto Mancini. The first half turned out to be a failure: Berardi and Immobile converted their territorial advantage into goals, after which the Italians, in their signature style, began to hold the advantage. No matter how the Northern Irishmen tried, they could not think of anything against the classic catenaccio – 0: 2.
Bulgaria, on the other hand , held both fights in its own field, but this did not help it in any way to score even one point. However, counting on them in the confrontation with Switzerland or the same Italy was, of course, naive.
The first ones crushed Yasen Petrov’s team with lightning speed, firing a triplet in the opening of the first half from the seventh to the twelfth minute, after which it was not difficult to bring the matter to victory – 1: 3.
The Italians chose a different path, scoring goals exclusively at the end of each game segment. On the 43rd minute, Andrea Belotti converted a penalty, and Manuel Locatelli put an end on the 82nd minute – 0: 2, Bulgaria closes the quintet table.
Exact score – 1: 0 winlineru
The Lions have not won away games since September 2018, and the hosts have scored at least one goal at home over the past three meetings.
Number 1 will be in the final score – yes winlineru
Only in the game against Italy, since last year, such an outcome has not been recorded.
In the class, Northern Ireland is superior to its rival, but there is still no gap between the teams, so the home team will have to give their best to win back three points, especially if they want to at least try to impose a fight for second place in the group. The guests have not yet shown how they are able to score points with serious opponents, so if they can catch at least one point, then this can be compared almost to a feat.
Our prediction is the victory of Northern Ireland with an odds of 1.99 from BC League Betting.
Both of them definitely cannot boast of top-tier strikers. The sides will prefer caution in front of their gates to open football, which means that no one will surprise anyone with entertainment here. As well as goals, in fact.
The second bet is the total under (2) goals with the odds of 1.98.
