Northern Ireland square up with Czech Republic at Windsor Park in a Group C 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying (Uefa) outing.
The Northern Irish are placed second on the qualifying log with 16 points behind leaders Germany - who boast of 21 points. They are unbeaten in their last four duels and will be expected to continue with this impressive record. Michael O'Neill’s men walloped San Marino 3-0 on Friday in their quest to make their fourth World Cup apperance. Bet9ja is pricing (2.74) for victory.
The reverse fixture at the Generali Arena in Prague ended in a stalemate and the betting outfit is offering (2.96) for the outing to finish the same way.
For the Czechs, they were on the verge of picking a point in their last encounter with the Germans but a late goal from Mats Hummels ruined their aspiration. With the loss, their ambition of featuring in next year’s World Cup is dented as they are twelve points below Germany and seven points adrift of their hosts.
Goals will not likely be at the premium, understandably so because both sides could not find the back of the net in their previous meeting. The betting outfit offers (1.46) for less than three goals in the clash.
O'Neill’s charges will be expected to win either half at (1.96) as they have done the same in their last three duels.
