Northern Ireland v Austria Nations League Preview, November 18th 5.00pm
B3 of the Nations League has drawn to a bit of anticlimax. Austria picked up a draw against group leaders Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday night and that means the places are settled. Unfortunately for Northern Ireland that means bottom spot for them and relegation after having lost their opening three games. Can they sign off in style with a home win though?

Northern Ireland News and Form
Northern Ireland’s hopes of surviving in the second tier of the Nations league have come to an end. They have already been relegated from their group after Austria got a point against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday. What that has done at least has taken any pressure off them for this game. So maybe they can turn that into a positive and get a result. Northern Ireland have not scored in their last three games though and both teams have scored in just one of their last five games. Both teams not to score is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm).
It’s hard not to expect a low-scoring game coming up. Over the last five games, Northern Ireland are W1 L1 L3 so are out of form and in their last dozen fixtures, they have collected just the two wins (D3 L7). The Irish have failed to net in their last two games against Austria. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm). Northern Ireland played out a 0-0 draw with Ireland in midweek as a warm-up for this one.

Austria News and Form
This group is completely settled because Austria won’t move from second place regardless of what happens in this game. They have come up with only the one goal in their last four fixtures and that’s just another indicator that this fixture is likely to be short on goals. The one goal that they have come up with in their last four games was in their 1-0 success over Northern Ireland in the Nations League. A 0-0 correct score option is at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 16th, 2018 at 4:29 pm). Austria’s form over their last six games is W2 D1 L3.
It has been a bit of a surprising dip in form and that is because they were on a seven-match winning streak before that. None of Austria’s last five games has seen both teams score in a fixture. Austria are on a two-match losing streak out on their travels, again without having scored. Austria’s three Nations League games have produced just the two goals in total. With nothing at stake left in the game for either of these two then you get the feeling that the fixture may struggle to get up a big head of steam in terms of excitement.
Who will win – Northern Ireland v Austria Predictions
There is nothing at stake now in this one. Austria can’t win the group, Northern Ireland can’t avoid relegation. So everyone will finish as they were and because of that the only outcome that we can predict is the draw really.
