Northern Ireland vs Estonia Betting Preview – 21/03/2019

Northern Ireland vs Estonia

Northern Ireland will look to kick off their European Champions Qualifiers with a simple win over Estonia, who they will meet them at Windsor Park. Northern Ireland will be expected to secure three points from this fixture to give them the best possible chance of progressing to the Finals, as they sit in the same group as Germany and Netherlands. Estonia finds themselves as the joint-least favourite side to qualify from Group C and can be backed with SkyBet to do so for a huge price of 500/1. These two sides have met four times in their history and both arrive having won two games apiece. Estonia have held the upper hand recently with them winning the past two meetings.

Northern Ireland will have to be at the top of their game in order to secure a spot in the top two of their group, as they currently sit as third favourites to qualify, with odds of 50/1 on SkyBet. Northern Ireland failed to impress during the Nations League with them losing all four games played which led to them being relegated from their league. The last game that hosts emerged victorious was five games ago when they beat Israel 3-0 in an international friendly. Despite being in poor form throughout the Nations League, the hosts are clear favourites for this fixture and can be backed with SkyBet to win at a price of 1/2.


Over the course of the Nations League, Michael O’Neil’s men scored just two goals and he will be keen to see a better performance in front of goal this time around. Will Grigg bagged one of those two goals and will be in the spotlight to provide the majority of his side’s goals during the Euro Qualifiers’. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 7/4. Only one of Northern Ireland’s last four games has seen over 2.5 goals scored. Bet365 has there to be under 2.5 goals scored priced at 1/2.

Being priced as the least likely side to qualify from Group C will take the weight off Estonia’s shoulders with them having nothing to prove which could benefit them. Much like their opponents, Estonia had a poor outing during the Nations League and found themselves finishing in last place. Over the course of the six games, they picked up one win, one draw and four defeats. Their most recent fixture saw them go up against Greece and win 1-0. SkyBet has Estonia to win priced at 13/2.

Although Estonia have been struggling for form in recent games, they head into this fixture having beaten their opponents in the last two meetings. During those two wins, both teams got onto the scoresheet and you can back BTTS again with Bet365 at a price of 13/8. Frank Livak has been priced as favourites for Estonia to score on Thursday with odds of 11/2 with Betway.
