Northern Ireland sit top of Group C ahead of the Netherlands and Germany and will be looking to consolidate that position on Saturday in their Euro 2020 qualifier away to Estonia. Form Labs breaks down the action with their betting preview and tips for the game while as ever we have the value with our selection of enhanced odds available on our FanBoosts section.
Northern Ireland Setting The Early Pace
Northern Ireland have a mountain to climb to finish in the top two slots in Group C with both Germany and the Netherlands for competition, but they’ve set a quick pace with home wins over Estonia and Belarus to kick off their campaign.
They’ll need to win their away games against those sides to stand a chance in the final standings, though with Estonia only managing to beat Gibraltar 1-0 in a friendly during their last outing back in March, Michael O’Neill’s men will feel this is an opportunity ripe for the taking.
Estonia Recent Form
Estonia endured a horrid UEFA Nations League campaign, comfortably finishing bottom of a pool of teams featuring Finland, Hungary and Greece, with their sole win coming after their fate was already sealed and they’ll now compete in League D next time around.
It’s a good time to play them as they’re a team in transition, with as many as four players in their mid-thirties possessing over 100 caps either retiring or being left out in recent months.
That includes three defenders, with the most notable amongst them ex-Liverpool centre-back and national team captain Ragnar Klavan.
Estonia v Northern Ireland Betting Tips
Although Northern Ireland have lost four of seven winless road trips since October 2017, and failed to score a single goal, the teams they’ve faced over this period are much better than Estonia and it could be some time before they have a better opportunity to change that record around (with the possible exception of Belarus on Tuesday).
Estonia have lost five of their last seven competitive home games, but instead of backing the visitors simply to claim the three points, their paucity in front of goal leaves the correct score an appealing price – especially with the hosts losing 1-0 in two of their last three in Tallinn.
