Northern Ireland considered as underdogs in their group but their recent results suggest otherwise. The team is on 12-match undefeated run since the end of March last year. Northern Ireland recorded sin wins and six draws with 17-7 aggregate goal difference. The team is built of average players mainly from England Championship but their determination and skills of their manager allowed to reach such impressive result and qualify for the main stage of Euro in France. Northern Ireland prefer to give possession away and count on counterattacks. Considering recent results of the team, such approach pays off with great results so far.
Poland and Ireland national teams played seven head-to-heads in their history. Each of the opponents recorded three wins and one match ended with a draw. Upcoming clash is important in terms of battle for the place in the knockout stage as both of the teams will have to face World Champions Germany. We can expect Northern Ireland to stick to their football and focus on denying opponent’s attacks rather than on creating ones of their own and it should lead to a low-scoring result in the head-to-head.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
