Match analysis

The Green and White Army produce much better displays at home than on the travels, but keep in mind that Wednesday’s game will be played behind closed doors. Boss Ian Baraclough rested several first-team regulars in a friendly defeat to USA, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Bulgaria.

 

Yasen Petrov’s troops, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Switzerland (1-3) and Italy (0-2), and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the Windsor Park clash. You should bear in mind that Northern Ireland are eyeing their first win over Bulgaria since 1979 when the two teams met in the EURO 98 qualifiers.

 

Betting Verdict:

There is not much difference in strength between the two sides, but Northern Ireland has the home court advantage and is more confident. The 1X2 first odd is 2.10-3.10-3.75, which means support the home team. Northern Ireland should win this game.
