For our San Marino vs. Northern Ireland prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the away side.
Northern Ireland face arguably the easiest game of the international football calendar as they take on San Marino on Thursday night.
San Marino are set to tackle yet another futile qualification campaign as attempt to qualify for the 2024 EUROs with almost certainly no success.
They enter this game in typically abysmal form having failed to win any of their last seventy-one matches, a run stretching all the way back to 2014.
Their record in their last four matches is drawn two and lost two, with the two draws coming against Seychelles and St. Lucia and the losses coming against Estonia and St. Lucia.
On home soil things aren't much better with San Marino drawing one and lost three of their last four games on home soil having not scored a single goal in that time period.
San Marino are arguably the worst team in European football and will likely lose every game of this qualifying campaign including their opener here.
Northern Ireland have been drawn into qualifying Group H, a group containing Denmark, Finland, Kazakhstan, San Marino and Slovenia.
Ireland will be pleased with that draw given the top two sides qualify automatically and after Denmark they will feel as though they're at worst on even footing with the likes of Finland and Slovenia.
However, their form has been fairly disappointing of late having won one, drawn two and lost four of their last seven matches.
Their form away from home has been equally poor having won one, drawn and lost four of their last six matches on the road.
Northern Ireland are in a particularly transitory period right now with almost no players in their squad currently a first team regular for a side in a top five European league, something that's forced manager Michael O'Neill to call on the services of 19-year-old Shea Charles, yet to make a first team appearance for Manchester City, and 19-year-old Isaac Price - not yet as first team regular at Everton.
Michael O'Neill had a successful first stint in charge of Northern Ireland and back now for a second spell there is hope he can revive their form. His tenure should start with a win here, regardless, with their opponents the whipping boys of the group.
