My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

With France in the same group, the race for the second spot comes down between Finland, and Ukraine.
A win for Switzerland helped them lock on the second spot in the qualifying group C. With a six-point deficit to leaders Italy, Switzerland themselves needed to ride their luck during a 0-0 draw with Italy in the other fixture of their September double-header, and the resultant two points from two games has diminished their hopes of catching the Azzurri.
Northern Ireland are currently three points shy of Switzerland from the same number of matches. A 3-0 victory against Malta has helped Northern Ireland move on from a previous eight-game winless streak. However, Northern Ireland have failed to find the back of the net in three of four World Cup qualifiers, a run that includes the goalless draw to Bulgaria on the home patch.
Both of two teams will be without some important players in this game. However, the visitors also need to deal with the injury issue. Therefore, expect Switzlerland should edge past Northern Ireland here.
Switzerland to win
Final Results:1-0, 2-0
