Match Betting (1x2)

The Waldstadion in Frankfurt plays host to the final Euro 2020 qualifying game for Germany and Northern Ireland, with the home side likely to be past the post when it comes to reaching the finals next summer.

It’s been fairly plain sailing for Joachim Low’s side who have landed five victories from their six games played and they are likely to have comfortably beaten Belarus a few days before playing this clash.

After all, the Belarusians have lost five of their seven qualifying matches and it means that Northern Ireland will arrive in Germany merely playing for pride.

Perhaps this will be the final game where Michael O’Neill takes charge. The manager has worked wonders with a modest group of players, although there are several English and Scottish clubs who have made approaches.

The Northern Irish will be massive outsiders for this clash, having lost 2-0 at Windsor Park against the same opponents although it was a close tussle until the visitors took the lead just after half-time.

First Goalscorer

Interestingly, the most recent German squad didn’t contain a huge number of forwards, although Timo Werner has now earned 28 caps for his national side and the Leipzig forward is likely to be leading the line in this clash.

Werner is only 23 yet represents the future and this is precisely the match where we might see the forward proving effective, with Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry boasting an incredible ten goals in eleven games and perhaps he represents a good First Scorer pick.

Marco Reus is the highest-scoring midfielder in the German squad and the Borussia Dortmund player could be dangerous and will be trading at a bigger price than some of the strikers on the shortlist.

Asian Handicap

This is clearly a match where Germany can win by a comfortable margin. Let’s face the truth – none of the Northern Ireland squad would get near the German squad and we could end up seeing Die Mannschaft running riot in Frankfurt.

This is a team who have scored twenty goals in six qualifying matches to date and you could consider a bet on Germany -2.5 which would mean they would need to win by a margin of three goals or more in order to triumph.

Alternatively, Germany -3.5 would need the home side to win by a margin of four goals and it’s not out of the question if they were able to score an early goal who might struggle to live with the quality.

However, it should be noticed that Northern Ireland have enjoyed a respectable campaign and third place represents a great achievement, with the visitors only losing by two goals away to Netherlands.

Over / Under Goals

Considering that the scoreline in the Netherlands was a 3-1 victory for the Dutch, we might expect at least four goals to be scored in Frankfurt.

Therefore, the Over 3.5 Goals option could be worth pursuing and that appeals more than the Over 2.5 Goals quote which is likely to be trading at a far shorter price.
