Here are our top Czech Republic Northern Ireland betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
It may not fall into the category of glamour friendly, most will agree. However, this does provide the Norn Iron team with a very good workout and one that will prepare them for more important upcoming tasks. It also allows the coaching staff to experiment with players, formations, set-pieces and tactics. They can take their ideas from the training ground into a live environment without the pressure of losing Euro 2020 points. This will be both worthwhile and educational for all involved.
Those looking to profit from the occasion may wish to take their lead from the history of this fixture and there’s more than enough to go on. These teams have faced off in competitive action no less than six times in the past. However, there’s not too much between the rivals on the head-to-head stats. The scores currently sit at two wins to the Czech Republic, three draws and one win for Northern Ireland. This is sure to be another tight affair.
Neck and Neck
The sole win for the British side came last time out when claiming a historic 2-0 at Windsor Park in a World Cup qualifier back in 2017. Johnny Evans and Chris Brunt both scored first-half goals. That was more than enough to see them take the bragging rights. More of the same would do just nicely. Northern Ireland are 7/2 at Bet365 against the 17/20 for a home win and 23/10 the draw.
