Match Summary

One to Watch: Marko Arnautovic

A name which won’t be a surprise to most football fans, Arnautovic has the ability to be a match winner on any team he plays for and for his country, a lot is expected of him. The versatile forward has 19 goals and 17 assists in 74 Austrian appearances, but he’s without a goal in his five games for his nation. But as the old cliche goes, he’s due a goal any time soon and given his form so far this season for West Ham, it may be wise to go with Arnautovic to score first in a 2-1 Austria win at 25/1 with Bet365 as your football betting tip for the week.

Austria vs Northern Ireland Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Marko Arnautovic take his club form into Austria duty?

In the newly formed Nations League, the fact that not many nations know how to tackle the competition has made for some good games already. With many not entirely sure what you gain from the competition, it’s the perfect chance for nations such as Austria and Northern Ireland to stake a claim to go up in the rankings and to give them a better chance of qualifying for future major tournaments. With that in mind, this could be a very close game to call. Bet365 have Austria down at 1/2 to win with a draw at 3/1, but the big value could be with the Northern Ireland win at 6/1. It’s not huge odds, granted, but it’s good enough to stand a realistic chance of happening, especially if you couple it with a correct score prediction.

Even a 1-0 away win is at 12/1 so you can imagine what some of the other scorelines are like but the one that stands out as a good deal is with Kyle Lafferty to score first in a 1-0 Ireland win at 25/1, or even the same goal scorer in a 2-1 win at 35/1. You’d be better off at least considering this bet, even if the odds are high.

Predicted Score: Austria 2 - 1 Northern Ireland
