TODAY'S BEST BET | NOVEMBER 15
We’re heading to the European World Cup qualifiers for today’s best bet as Italy look to secure their spot at Qatar 2022 when they travel to face Northern Ireland.
Italy missed the chance to book their ticket to Qatar after failing to score a penalty in the final minutes of their 1-1 draw with Switzerland on Friday, but that just means they will be all the more determined to claim victory here.
This should be a fairly straightforward assignment for the reigning European champions.
Italy have won six of the seven meetings between the nations, with Northern Ireland’s only win coming all the way back in 1958.
Furthermore, Italy haven’t conceded a goal to Northern Ireland in the last five games between the teams, with Northern Ireland last scoring in that aforementioned win in 1958.
Northern Ireland have failed to score in four of their seven games in the group so far and haven’t found the back of the net in all of their games against Italy and Switzerland. They simply don’t have the necessary firepower up front to cause trouble to the top nations.
Italy have leaked just two goals for the entire campaign and haven’t conceded any in away fixtures.
With a spot at the 2022 World Cup on the line, we’re confident Italy can get the job done here with minimal fuss.
- Italy have won six of the seven meetings between the teams
- Italy haven’t conceded a goal vs Northern Ireland since 1958 (last five straight games)
- Northern Ireland have failed to score in four of their seven group games
- Northern Ireland have failed to score vs top two sides in Group C
- Italy haven’t conceded a goal in away WCQ matches this campaign
