Northern Ireland vs Belarus Betting Preview – 24/03/2019

Northern Ireland vs Belarus

Belarus head over to Windsor Park this Sunday looking to improve on their latest performance when they face Northern Ireland in matchday two of the Euro 2020 Qualifiers. Northern Ireland kicked off their Euro campaign with a comfortable win over Estonia and will be looking to add another three points against a Belarus side that should not pose too many threats. With a price of 500/1 for them to qualify, Belarus are clear underdogs in Group C and their 4-0 defeat to the Netherlands has set the tone for their Euro Qualifiers. These sides have only met once in the past which was back in 2016 and as expected, Northern Ireland eased to a 3-0 win.

Northern Ireland are strong favourites to secure the full three points from this upcoming fixture and anything less would come as a shock, after their dominant performance over Estonia. The hosts find themselves as third favourites to progress from Group C and with Germany underperforming in their last two competitions, they could be in with securing a spot in the knockout stages. Before beating Estonia, Northern Ireland had been struggling to find form with them suffering three defeats and one draw in their last five games. Bet365 has the hosts to beat Belarus priced at 3/4.

The hosts will be confident in securing all three points while playing at Windsor Park, with them losing just one of their last five home games. Also, they have managed to keep three clean sheets in their last five home games and SkyBet has them to keep another priced at 4/5. The hosts kept a clean sheet in their last game and with Belarus failing to score in their previous fixture you might want to back both teams not to score with Bet365 who are offering odds of 1/2.


Belarus will be hoping for a better result than their previous which saw them suffer a heavy 4-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Wednesday. Belarus created a similar number of chances as their previous opponents but lacked the quality in the final third to convert. Before losing to Holland, Belarus had been in some good form which has seen them go six games without a loss and had secured wins against San Marino and Luxembourg. The travelling side arrives as clear underdogs for this fixture and SkyBet has them priced at 4/1 to win.

Igor Kriushenko’s men failed to score a single goal in their previous match and Bet365 has them to go goalless again priced at 5/6. Belarus have lost just one of their last four away games and have managed to keep clean sheets in all but one of them. SkyBet is offering odds of 11/4 for them to keep a clean sheet. Anton Soraka has been priced as the most likely player to score for Belarus with odds of 4/1 with Betway.
