International Football Predictions and Tips – Thursday 2 June

We’ve got ourselves a host of international matches on Thursday. With the highlight match being the Iberian clash between Spain and Portugal. Meanwhile, Northern Ireland kick off their latest Nations League campaign by facing Greece at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland 19:45 Greece

Northern Ireland and Greece are likely to be involved in a low-scoring clash at Windsor Park. Neither team are particularly full of goals. With the past six Greek encounters featuring two or less. In March, they claimed a 1-0 victory away at Romania in a friendly. Before getting turned over by the same scoreline in Montenegro.

Ian Baraclough’s side tend to feature in similarly low-scoring encounters. As was testified when losing 1-0 at home to Hungary at the end of March. It could well be that one goal determines the winner of a clash which is likely to have a big bearing on the victor of the group.

Czech Republic 19:45 Switzerland

The Sinobo Stadium in Prague will play host to a clash between Czech Republic and Switzerland, with the match potentially ending all square. Both sides turned out at last summer’s Euro 2020 and the countries acquitted themselves well. By going relatively deep in the tournament before losing in the quarter finals.

Indeed, the Czechs are on an upward trajectory after getting promoted to the upper echelon of the Nations League. While the Swiss are typically stubborn opponents and will have one eye on the winter World Cup where Brazil and Serbia lie in wait.

Spain 19:45 Portugal

The Benito Villamarin in Seville plays host to a clash between two Iberian rivals. Who will both be featuring at the 2022 World Cup later this month. Spain are the favourites to make home advantage count although many of their squad members will be resting up. After helping Real Madrid to recently win the Champions League.

The same will apply to Diogo Jota who played for Liverpool in Saturday’s final. Although Fernando Santos is likely to field a strong lineup for this Nations League encounter. And we think the best bet is both sides to find the net. Especially if Cristiano Ronaldo is on the field and at his devastating best.

Serbia 19:45 Norway

Serbia look a reasonably sound bet to make home advantage count at the Red Star Stadium in Belgrade. Dragan Stojkovic’s side are always tough cookies to beat at home. And they will be motivated by putting together a series of strong performances after finishing above Portugal to qualify for the World Cup.

Norway are not exactly a one-man team although Erling Haaland naturally holds the key. And the new Manchester City man could play his part here. So too Martin Odegaard of Arsenal although the rest of the team might struggle to live with opponents who don’t tend to lose many games.
