Switzerland vs Northern Ireland: prediction for the 2022 World Cup qualifier
We offer our prediction and betting tips for the match between Switzerland and Northern Ireland. Who will record a victory in the battle for the second spot in Group C? The answer is in the article below.
The Red Crosses are looking great in the qualification tournament, they have played only four matches so far and already picked up four points. Team is at the 2nd position in Group C.
Switzerland started the tournament with a victory over Bulgaria (3:1), then beat Lithuania (1:0) and had two draws. Murat Yakin's men managed to stop Italy (0:0) and then had a draw against Northern Ireland (0:0). Now is the crucial moment, because Swiss team is hosting the nearest competitor and has the chance to break away, in case if they will record a victory.
Ian Baraclough's men knew that Italy and Switzerland will compete against each other for top two spots in the group, Irishmen could only put up a fight against them. So far they are unsuccessful in it, but they are trying their best.
In the previous match Northern Ireland hosted Switzerland and made everything to hold the favourites to a goalless draw (0:0). Now Steven Davis and his partners will try to secure a positive result once again, this time at Stade de Geneve. Overall, it will be a tough challenge for the team.
In none of four most recent head-to-head matches a goal exchange took place
Team failed to score in four head-to-head matches against Switzerland
Haris Seferovic was one of the best forwards in Euro 2020
Most recent head-to-head match proved that under the pressure Northern Ireland can just park the bus and try to sit out on defense until the final whistle. Ian Baraclough's men will try to snatch another draw, but that's unlikely to happen.
Switzerland will try to narrow the gap from Italy. Murat Yakin's men are favourites in a home match. In our opinion, hosts will record a victory in this match.

We think that visitors will play defensively in an attempt to pick up at least one point. Hosts will try to play offensively, but they are not scoring many goals recently, so we offer to place a bet on total under.
Our second bet is on total under 2.5 goals
