Northern Ireland travel to Luxembourg on Friday for the first of two friendlies during the March international break.


Manager Ian Baraclough has revealed he's viewing these games as the start of their journey to Euro 2024, having now missed out on two consecutive major tournaments.

With both Italy and Switzerland drawn alongside Northern Ireland in FIFA World Cup European Qualifying Group C, reaching Qatar 2022 always looked a tough ask and so it would prove.

Luxembourg fell short of qualification as well but enjoyed their most fruitful campaign ever – finishing with nine points due to a pair of wins over Azerbaijan and a victory against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

The hosts are 39 places lower than Northern Ireland in the FIFA rankings, so we may see Baraclough experiment a little and look to give some of their exciting up-and-coming players – such as Trai Hume and Paddy Lane – their first chances to impress for the national team. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Luxembourg v Northern Ireland on TV and online.

Our prediction: Luxembourg v Northern Ireland

Luxembourg's World Cup qualifying ended poorly with a 3-0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland at the Stade de Luxembourg in November but confidence will still be high among Luc Holtz's squad after an impressive campaign.

Even so, Baraclough will be confident that there is enough quality in his ranks to come away with a victory here and get the strong start he wants to their journey towards Euro 2024.

As their 0-0 draw with Italy late last year showed, Northern Ireland are a tough side to break down and even without Paddy McNair they may be able to keep their hosts out – though Gerson Rodrigues proved a hard man to stop during World Cup qualification.

Our prediction: Luxembourg 0-1 Northern Ireland (5/1 at Bet365)
