Germany vs. Northern Ireland Predictions and Preview
Germany have already qualified from the group and need three points here to guarantee top spot ahead of the Netherlands.
Joachim Low’s side have won six of their seven qualification matches with the only blotch a home defeat against the Netherlands.
Northern Ireland will definitely finish third in the group and go into a playoff spot with four wins and a draw from their seven games.
Michael O’Neill’s side will look to finish the group on a high and will be a tough opponent for anyone in the playoffs.
The hosts are strong favourites for this encounter at odds of 2/13 with a Northern Ireland victory priced at 16/1 and the draw available at 13/2.
Germany have five clean sheets in seven games while Northern Ireland have four, so under 1.5 goals at 19/4 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 31/20.
A ‘double chance’ on Northern Ireland to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 9/2 while a Italy win/draw outcome is at 1/28.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 8/15.
One to watch for Germany: Serge Gnabry has seven goals in his last 10 international appearances for Germany, including in Belfast back in September. He is at 22/25 to score at any point in this game.
One to watch for Northern Ireland: 29-year-old forward Josh Magennis has scored in three of his last five qualification matches and is the main threat for the visitors – is at 11/2 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Germany have kept five clean sheets in their last six qualification matches to date while Northern Ireland will look to sit deep and spring on the counter. A scoreless draw is priced at 17/1.
