Wales national team face Northern Ireland in the round of last 16 match of Euro 2016 in France. The match will be played in Paris at Parc des Princes on Saturday, June 25th.
Wales national team led by unstoppable Garrett Bale, who scored in each of group-stage matches, deserved to finish first in the group B while this result came as quite surprise. Wales won two matches against Slovakia, 2-1, and Russia, 3-0, losing 1-2 to the neighbors England after conceding late goal from Sturridge. Wales show quite solid football in defense and punish their opponents from counterattacks and set pieces taken by their leader Garrett Bale. Their clash against Russia was great example of such approach as Wales scored three and had chances to net twice more.

Northern Ireland impressed in clash against Ukraine, showing top football in defense and beating opponent’s keeper twice with shoot from a set-piece and with late counterattack. Exactly this win gained the team a place in knockout stage. Other two matches ended with 0-1 defeats to Germany and Poland but Northern Ireland had no chance to battle for points in these matches, combining only four shots in two games. Third place with 2-2 goal difference and participation in playoffs of the main stage of European Championship 2016 round is already great achievement for the team.
The opponents have played ten head-to-heads starting 1950. One match ended with one win of Northern Ireland, five matches ended with draws and four matches were won by Wales. Current Wales team are much stronger than their opponents in this match plus they have such extraordinary played as Garrett Bale, who can score from a set-piece or create opportunity for his teammates all by himself. This is why we can expect Chris Coleman’s man should take place in the quarterfinals.
Prediction for the match: Wales to win.
