Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Austria will be aiming to extend their winning run in the Nations League to three games when they host Northern Ireland at Ernst-Happel-Stadion. Franco Foda’s men are determined to secure promotion to League A, and we are positive that they will go all-out attacking in Sunday’s showdown. Marko Arnautovic is unlikely to arrive in time from China to face the Green and White Army, but Franco Foda has a number of high-profile players to choose from.
As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Bayern Munchen defender David Alaba, who is likely to be used as a left-back this time out. Northern Ireland footballers head into the match following the Euro 2021 playoffs final, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts, who are eager to cement top position in the table.
