Cyprus vs Northern Ireland – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Cyprus and Northern Ireland were both beaten in their Nations League openers on Thursday. Can either side bounce back on Sunday? Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Cyprus Double Chance

Northern Ireland failed to find the net for the fifth time in eight matches when they were beaten at home by Greece on Thursday evening and their inability to create chances means they could be worth opposing in Cyprus on Sunday. The hosts are rank outsiders, however, they have avoided defeat in five of their last eight home assignments and they are plucky enough to make life awkward for the Green and White Army. With that considered, we recommend backing Cyprus in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

As we detailed in our first prediction, Northern Ireland have struggled to make any headway in attack over the past nine months and they were unable to impact the scoresheet in all but three of their last eight fixtures. Cyprus – who have scored just three times in their last five games combined – shared similar issues up top and with goalscorers in short supply in both camps, a stake on under 2.5 goals could be a safe avenue of approach on Sunday.

Cyprus Predicted Lineup

Cyprus manager Nikolaos Kostenoglou deployed his team in a 3-5-2 formation without success against Kosovo (0-2) on Thursday and though the result went against them, the Cypriots are likely to set up the same way on Sunday. Grigoris Kastanos was his team's star performer in midfield on Thursday and he could be a key player again this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Cyprus: Michael – Kyriakou, Gogic, Panagiotou – Antoniou, Artymates, Kastanos, Papoulis, Ioannou – Sotiriou, Tzionis

Northern Ireland Predicted Lineup

Northern Ireland played a typically defensive game against Greece on Thursday and their supporters were left frustrated after yet another toothless display. Ian Baraclough is unlikely to waver from his philosophy however, so expect to see Northern Ireland set up with a back five again.
