Wales vs Northern Ireland Prediction

Wales have been producing scintillating performances at the Euro 2021 finals. The Dragons did well to beat Slovakia and Russia in the group stages and it is no surprise they are regarded as favourites to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash against Northern Ireland. Gareth Bale looks unstoppable at the moment and the Real Madrid ace is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line. Taking everything into account, home win should be considered.
