Northern Ireland vs Germany – 2018 World Cup Qualification: Northern Ireland will surely take part in the play-offs to qualify for the World Cup.
Even more because they are one of the best 2nd placed teams in all of the groups.
They can still mathematically overtake Germany, but even if they were to win, they would have to wait for a Germany’s loss against Azerbaijan and would have to win in Norway.
Ireland is on a big streak of wins, getting 5 in a row after their 2-0 loss in Germany.
The most impressive detail about this team is that they haven’t conceded a single goal on those 5 matches, which means they are the best defence in this group alongside with Germany.
On this National team, there aren’t any big stars. Most of the players play in England, some in the Premier League but most of them on the Championship, but not in top teams.
As a team/ National team, they function well and they deserve credit for securing their presence on the play-off.
The Germans are leading this group where they were big favourites to win it from the start.
They are a very strong National team and they’ve imposed their dominance in this group without any trouble since Ireland, Czech Republic and Norway were easy opponents for them.
On 8 matches they have 8 wins and they have by far the best attack in the group, while also having the best defence, sharing that position precisely with the Irish.
For this match, the draw is enough for the Germans to secure the 1st place mathematically but Germany doesn’t know how to play for the draw and they will certainly impose their dominance on this match against Northern Ireland.
The Germans have a lot of quality as a team and they have a lot of players who can make an impact at any point in the game.
Northern Ireland vs Germany – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Germany will win this match.
Northern Ireland deserve a lot of credit for their fantastic campaign on this group with teams like Norway and Czech Republic, which could be dangerous opponents and tough for the Northern Irish, but they proved to be superior and they are sitting on a deserved 2nd place.
They still have the dream to reach the 1st place but it is nothing but a dream.
They were forced to win here in order to continue dreaming but I predict a strong German team starting off strong and dominating this match against Northern Ireland and looking at the Germans’ individual quality.
A goal can happen at any moment and then they would just need to play with the result and manage their lead. My bet is Germany to win here
