Betting tips Kosovo vs Northern Ireland

A tight fixture is expected in this League C Group 2 fixture with both sides short of goals in recent matches.

Indeed, Northern Ireland come into this match having seen under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of their last 10 matches and in 5 of their last 6 away UNL contests. The Northern  Irish have also failed to score in 4 of their 5 most recent matches

Ranked over 50 places ahead of the hosts in the FIFA World Rankings, the visitors enter this fixture as 3.6 underdogs with Kosovo available at 2.05 odds at the time of writing. Favourites for this fixture, Kosovo had enjoyed an excellent 4 match unbeaten run prior to their narrow loss against Greece this past weekend with away draws against both Switzerland and Greece in World Cup qualifying as well as a 5:0 thrashing of Burkina Faso in a recent friendly.

Still, the under 2.5 goal selection at 1.61 odds is our preferred pick with Kosovo also seeing that outcome in 5 of their 6 most recent matches and in 5 of their last 6 UNL fixtures.

Ultimately, a low-scoring affair seems the safest choice and while Kosovo are slight favourites, we wouldn´t be surprised to see the spoils shared at the Stadiumi Fadil Vokrr.
