Wales v N Ireland

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Northern Ireland have failed to score in three of their last four games
Expert verdict
Northern Ireland got the very best outcome they could have hoped for in Group C but their Euro 2016 adventure is set to end at the hands of a Wales side spearheaded by Gareth Bale. Wales will be high on confidence after their impressive 3-0 success over Russia and have a genuine outside chance of reaching the final.
