Northern Ireland vs Finland Predictions


Northern Ireland failed to impress against San Marino, while Finland were just ten minutes away from causing an upset in Copenhagen. This should be a close match with a draw on the cards. BTTS is also tipped.

Head to Head


Northern Ireland have a 4-3 advantage against Finland with two draws in nine matches.

The most recent head to head encounter was in October 2015 in Helsinki, ending in a 1-1 draw.

Northern Ireland Form


As expected, Northern Ireland started the Euro 2024 qualifiers with a win against San Marino on Thursday night (2-0).

Both goals were bagged by Dion Charles, Preston’s striker who waited for 19 games to score for the national team. He is expected to lead the offense against Finland as well.

Northern Ireland won the most recent match at home against Kosovo (2-1), but that was their only victory in the last five contests.

Defenders: Craig Cathcart, Jamal Lewis, Daniel Ballard, Ciaron Brown, Conor Bradley, Trai Hume, Eoin Toal
Midfielders: Paddy McNair, Shane Ferguson, George Saville, Jordan Thompson, Shea Charles, Cameron McGeehan, Sean Goss, Isaac Price

Finland Form


Finland were defeated in the Scandinavian derby game on Thursday by Denmark in Copenhagen (1-3). They held hosts to a 1-1 draw for 82 minutes but conceded two late goals.

That was the third straight defeat for the Eagle-Owls, losing two friendly matches in January to Sweden (0-2) and Estonia (0-1).

Markku Kanerva’s side ended the previous UEFA Nations League B campaign with eight points, which was not enough to secure promotion.
