Northern Ireland vs Kosovo – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can Northern Ireland secure their first victory of the campaign when they take on Kosovo in the Nations League? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Kosovo Double Chance

While catching Greece in top spot is nigh on impossible, Kosovo are performing well in Nations League C Group 2 and they reside in second place thanks to two wins in four games. One of those victories was secured against Northern Ireland in June (3-2), while the Kosovans have only lost two of their last seven assignments on the road in all competitions. Northern Ireland meanwhile, have only won twice in their last 11 attempts and they have failed to win 13 of their last 14 fixtures at home. Ian Baraclough’s side are desperately low on confidence and they could be worth opposing in the double chance market on Saturday.

Kosovo to Score First

When Kosovo beat Northern Ireland back in June, they were two goals to the good after just 19 minutes and Ian Baraclough’s charges have a nasty penchant for falling behind in a high number of their contests. Indeed, Northern Ireland have gone behind in four of their last five fixtures and with their self-belief levels at a low ebb, they could be caught cold again on Saturday. With that in mind, we recommend backing Kosovo to net the first goal at Windsor Park this weekend.
