Both sides are winless in their three games in the competition. With both sides on only one point, the team that loses this tie might be out of contention for a qualification spot into League B.
The home team conceded two early goals against Kosovo in their previous outing as the game ended 3-2 in favor of Dardanët. Cyprus remained without a goal to their name in the competition as they suffered a 3-0 loss to Greece last time around.

Northern Ireland vs Cyprus Prediction
Northern Ireland scored their first two goals in their ongoing Nations League campaign last time around and will be hoping to find the back of the net again in this home game against Cyprus.
Cyprus have failed to score a goal in the competition while conceding five goals in three games. We do not expect them to score a goal in this game and back the hosts to eke out a narrow win.
