Northern Ireland
    Greece

      Tip Reasoning

      Northern Ireland’s recent stretch of games hasn’t actually been their most impressive, but they have found a way to stay in control of this Euro 2016 qualifying group. It felt like the 2-0 defeat to Romania last November could be a crucial moment in this group. Northern Ireland’s form since has hardly been impressive, they’ve drawn at home against Hungary and Romania, while winning the games they ought to against Faroe Islands and Finland.

      Still, their last two games are very winnable, starting with a home tie against Greece. There’s something about the spirit of Michael O’Neill’s team, there’s a momentum in their campaign and it’s starting to feel like they’re destined to qualify for these championships. There’s pace in this line-up and they have a way of keeping teams off-balance.

      It has been a qualifying campaign to forget for Greece, the team that so famously won the 2004 European championships. They’ve yet to win a game in Euro 2016 qualifying, managing to draw three games. Draws with Hungary and Romania might be the highlights of their campaign, but those results were sandwiched by back-to-back defeats to Faroe Islands and Finland.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Northern Ireland spirit

      There’s just something about this side. They’ve been on a mission and it could hardly have been highlighted better than in their last game against Hungary when Kyle Lafferty scored a goal in the third minute of injury time to secure a crucial point.

      2. Greece disillusionment

      Yes, they grabbed a draw against Romania, but we’re not convinced that they’ve got much left to offer at this point. The national side might already be looking ahead to World Cup qualification.

      3. Love the odds

      Northern Ireland have won five out of eight games, Greece are winless in their matches, we can be very happy and should take advantage of the betting opportunity of getting Northern Ireland at 7/5.
