UK Derby

In 1/8 finals of EURO two UK nations Wales and N. Ireland will meet in H2H match and one of teams will brign great success to their nation qualifing to 1/4 finals of EURO. Wales showed more in groups with wins against Slovakia and Russia and 1 goal lose to England and they have main star Bale in form. N. Ireland made great achivement already coming to EURO and now qualify to 1/8 finals.  In group they beat Ukraine by 2 goals and as they lost to Poland and Germany only by 1 goal this was enough to be one of top 3rd placed teams.

Main man in Wales team is for sure Real Madrid star Bale. After him next big star is Arsenal Aaron Ramsey and that is it. But they also have really solid defence with Chester from WBA, Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor from Swansea and Ben Davies from Tottenham. So when you have solid defence and great players like Bale and Ramsey and they have support from solid players like experienced striker Vokes, midfilder Joe Allen from Liverpool and in form Andy King from Leicester. Well they can surprise some teams for sure.

Northern Ireland has no big stars but even so they have really solid team and they will fight more then they are capable of as they are proud to play for Northern Ireland on EURO and we saw this in match against Ukraine. They have no solid choices in goalkeeper position. Situation is better in defence where they have Jonny Evans from WBA, talanted Patrick McNair from Man. Utd. and Craig Cathcart from Watford. In midfield a lot will depend of experienced Southampton midfilder Steven Davis but there are also some solid players like Reading Norwood. In attack they have Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty that can cause some problems and score goals.

N. Ireland and Wales meet in March this year in friendly and it ended with draw 1-1 and I think those two teams are pretty equal but still Wales is little bit better and they have in form Bale that is player that add value in matches like this. I think Wales will win this one.
