Northern Ireland will continue their Euro 2020 qualifiers at home at Windsor Park where they will host the Netherlands. This is a massive game for Northern Ireland as a loss will almost end the qualification dream.
The Netherlands have been outstanding throughout the Euro 2020 qualifiers and they enter this match having won their previous outing 2-1 away from home against Belarus. It was a solid victory for the Dutch as they controlled 76% of the possession and had 21 shots. Georginio Wijnaldum was the star performer for the Netherlands as he scored both goals for the team. It has been an outstanding qualification campaign for the Dutch as they have beaten Germany away from home. The Netherlands look in good form and will be hoping to finish their qualification campaign strongly so they can secure top spot.
On the other side of the coin, Northern Ireland have been very impressive throughout this qualification campaign and they currently have 12 points from their 6 games. In their last match, Northern Ireland beat the Czech Republic 3-2 away from home. While the result was not a part of the Euro 2020 qualifiers, it will give the team huge amounts of confidence going forward. Northern Ireland have based their game around a solid defense and they will hope that will be enough to get them a win in this match.
Northern Ireland and the Netherlands met earlier in the qualifiers. The match was played in the Netherlands and the Dutch won the game 3-1. Memphis Depay played exceptionally well as he scored 2 goals.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to predict a draw. The Dutch are the stronger side but Northern Ireland have shown great determination and I see them having enough to secure a draw at home. This should be a low scoring game so the under 1.5 goals seems like a good wager.
