Belarus VS North Ireland

Preview
Belarus and Northern Ireland face at Borisov Arena, in a match for this stage of the EC Qualification (Qualifying Round). The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins in the last 2 matches. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Northern Ireland presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Belarus

After 3 losses, the home team is currently in the 5th position, with no points won. In the last match, they have lost (0‑2) at home against Germany, after in the previous round they have lost (2‑1) in an away match against Northern Ireland. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 12 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 13 conceded. Belarus has won 3, tied 2 and lost 3 of the last 8 home matches. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Belarus are set to play in this game with a 0-2 reverse on their way to Germany, adding to their third defeat in qualifying for EURO 2020. In this game against Northern Ireland, the group led by Igor Kriuschenko should be 5-3-2 in favor of defensive organization and counterattacks: Valeri Gromyko is one of the fastest players in the home team. It seems that there are no major absences for this clash.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Gutor, N. Naumov, A. Martynovich, D. Polyakov, I. Shitov, N. Korzun, Y. Schikavko, I. Stasevich, Y. Kovalev, P. Nekhajchik, I. Maevski.

Analysis of Northern Ireland

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Belarus by (2‑1). In the last round, they have won an away match against Estonia by (1‑2). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 8 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 9 wins and 6 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 14 conceded. In the last 9 away matches Northern Ireland has won 2, tied 3 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 9 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 6 out of 9 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 1 of those 3 matches and held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in all of them. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

The Northern Ireland squad come to this game with a 1-0 triumph in their trip to Estonia, registering a positive three-game winning streak in three games in this competition: the goals were signed by Conor Washington and Josh Magennis. Despite playing out of doors, coach Michael O'Neill should play the usual 4-3-3 privileging possession of the ball and organized bouts, particularly through the corridors. Veteran Stuart Dallas is one of the most important players in the North-Irish tactical scheme, being fundamental in the offensive process. For this game, the outsider trainer must risk his best pieces.

Confirmed Lineup: B. Peacock-Farrell, J. Evans, M. Smith, C. Cathcart, J. Lewis, C. Evans, J. Jones, P. McNair, S. Davis, J. Magennis, C. Washington.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this challenge will be Northern Ireland not to lose. Despite playing away from home, it will be expected that Northern Ireland will have more initiative in the match because of the individual quality it holds. On the other hand, the men of Belarus have some weaknesses in the game style and for this reason they must act defensively. In this way, risking the victory or the draw of Northern Ireland in this game is of great value.
