Linfield take on the visitors Larne in the round 3 of Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 20th at Windsor Park (Belfast).
Linfield could well be considered the face of Northern Ireland football. The main thing is that since 2019, the Blues have not given away the Northern Irish Gold to anyone. Because of this, the season for David Healy's men started early. They did not qualify for the group stage of the European Cup. But in the asset, they still recorded a victory over The New Saints in the Champions League. And the team did not make it to the main round of the Conference League only because of the penalty shootout. Since there were draws with the RFU, 2-2 on the road and 1-1 at home. According to the old rules, the Latvians would have been eliminated. After that the a grand, even in the Premiership, misfired, losing to the Rangers. But all other matches played ended in victories. And suddenly - a misfire with the Crusaders in the form of 1-2 on the road.

Larne are much less known than its next rival. Their last season can be considered a breakthrough. First they managed to finish in 5th place. And then Larne also won the playoffs for the right to play in the Conference League! This was actually a repeat of last year's result. Debut in European competition, however, was more successful. Then, in 2021, the representative of Northern Ireland sensationally went through both Bala Town and Aarhus, and even won against Pacos de Ferreira at home, but was defeated in Portugal. Now they were knocked out by the first opponent, St. Joseph's (0-1 at home, 0-0 in Gibraltar). But the wards of Tiernan Lynch started confidently in the championship. He went on an unbeaten streak with several spectacular victories. 1-0 with "Portadown" was theie 3rd victory in recent 5 matches.
It's not easy for Linfield to play against Larne. In the last championship, Larne twice took points from the champion in 4 matches of the Premiership. And knocked him out in the cup. Bookmakers believe in Linfield as expected - and it's hard to argue with that. Looking forward to win of the champions.
Prediction for the match: Linfield to win.
