Northern Ireland ended a four-match winless run when they claimed a comfortable 2-0 victory over Estonia. The question is, will they be able to do the same when Belarus come to town this Sunday night?
Goals from Niall McGinn and Steven Davis earned Northern Ireland a solid win over Estonia to kick off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign in style.
This was an important win as it ended an eight-match wait for a competitive win. With that monkey off their back, Michael O’Neill side will now look to make it two from two and potentially go top of group C.
Belarus, on the other hand, suffered their first defeat in ten months when they fell to a 4-0 defeat against the Netherlands. That long unbeaten streak that Igor Kriushenko’s team had may have sounded impressive but don’t be fooled.
Due to Belarus’ incredibly low FIFA ranking of 78, they were forced to compete against the likes of Luxembourg and San Marino in the bottom tier of UEFA’s National League.
Last time that Belarus visited Windsor Park, the Northern Irish side swept them off the park in a comprehensive 3-0 win.
With regards to the betting in this upcoming encounter, the recommendation is to back the hosts.
