Estonia vs Northern Ireland, Saturday’s match for the qualifying round, Group C, for the EURO 2020 Qualifiers, at the A. Le Coq Arena.
Estonia will try to avenge themselves from Northern Ireland when they meet them at A. Le Coq Arena on Saturday night.
The Baltic team comes from a friendly where they won a tangent victory over Gibraltar 1-0 in March, the Estonians want to win their first win in the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign but beating the Green and White Army is a task very complicated.
Estonia did very poor performance in the Nations League, which ended with relegation. For Estonia it will be very difficult, not to say impossible, to secure a place between the top two, since the group is composed of teams such as Germany and the Netherlands.
Mattias Käit will be able to play this match, while central defender Dmitri Kruglov is not in the game.
Northern Ireland started their qualifying campaign well into the 2020 Euro with the team to beat Estonia and Belarus in Group C.
Northern Ireland wants to continue their perfect start in their qualifying group, but they have a very difficult task ahead to qualify, as he had little luck in a group composed of Germany and the Netherlands.
We know that only the top two are qualified directly so it is unlikely that Ireland will qualify through this qualifying group.
However, Michael O’Neill’s team still has not given up hope, and the fight continues to the end. It can be said that Northern Ireland have a very favorable schedule, which has the chance to score fifteen points in the first five games when they play Luxembourg at home in early September.
Defender Conor McLaughlin is called in for this match, while Will Grigg is ruled out for injury.
Actually, you can say that Ireland is in a good moment, and you have a stronger team than their opponent. However, the home factor is almost always determinant in the outcome of the results.
