Northern Ireland vs San Marino Predictions

[wptb id="394003" not found ]

A Straight Home Win At Windsor Park?

Key Stats
– Northern Ireland have scored just four goals in their qualification campaign.
– San Marino have a goal drought, with zero goals in their last six matches.
– San Marino have been defeated by three goals or less in 75% of their last 16 games.

Northern Ireland are set to host San Marino this Saturday at Windsor Park. The home side’s journey in the Euro 2024 qualifiers has been rocky to say the least. Their aspirations of reaching the Euro 2024 have been dwindled to mere arithmetic. However, the stakes are equally high for both teams.

In their last meeting, Michael O’Neill’s squad triumphed 2-0 over San Marino, a refreshing win amidst their five defeats. Contrastingly, San Marino are yet to secure a win, having suffered six defeats and conceding a whopping 21 goals in the process, with not a single goal to their name.

Northern Ireland: The Hosts’ Performance Overview

Ranking 37th out of 53 teams in the European Championship Qualification 2024, Northern Ireland have an average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.73. Despite their triumph in the reverse fixture, their performance throughout the qualifiers has been far from stellar. With only four goals scored and eight conceded over six matches, their attacking prowess has been underwhelming.

Key players for the hosts, based on the BettingTips4You Expert Rating include Jamal Lewis, Shea Charles, and Paul Smyth, with ratings of 7.20, 7.18, and 7.15 respectively. On the offensive end, their top goalscorer, Dion Charles has managed to find the net twice, followed by Jonny Evans and Isaac Price, both with a goal each.

Defensively, Northern Ireland have managed to maintain a single clean sheet. They average a ball possession of 52.2% with an impressive passing accuracy, especially in their own half. However, errors leading to a goal have been their Achilles’ heel.

San Marino: The Underdogs’ Struggle

San Marino’s position at the bottom of the rankings, placed 53rd, speaks volumes of their struggle. With an average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.34, their journey in the qualifiers is reflective of a team grappling to find their footing.

Michele Cevoli emerges as San Marino’s top player with a rating of 6.80, closely followed by Mattia Stefanelli and Dante Rossi. However, the real concern for them is their toothless attack. With zero goals from inside or outside the box and a dearth of big chances, San Marino’s offence is evidently lacklustre.

Their defence, too, is riddled with issues. They’ve conceded an average of 3.5 goals per match, and with no clean sheets, the statistics paint a bleak picture. Ball possession stands at a mere 23.2% suggesting their difficulty in controlling the game.

Match Predictions

  1. Outcome Prediction: The huge difference in performance and quality between the two sides is evident. However, considering Northern Ireland’s not-so-prolific goal-scoring record and San Marino’s history of losing by three goals or less in 12 of their last 16 games, backing San Marino with a +4 handicap seems logical. Northern Ireland’s previous 2-0 victory and their total of just four goals in the qualifiers indicate a potentially close margin.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: San Marino’s defensive setup and the previous meeting’s outcome suggest a likely 3-0 win for Northern Ireland.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: With two goals under his belt, Dion Charles is poised to be the man to watch out for. Our prediction is that he will score at least once during the match.
  4. Corner Prediction: Based on their average corners per match, Northern Ireland are likely to win more corners. Predicting the total number, we can expect around 5.5 corners in total for the match.
