Our prediction: Northern Ireland v Austria

Austria exposed their vulnerability in the 3-2 defeat to Romania during the last international break, which will give Baraclough hope of his side making an impact here.

Northern Ireland will need to play impactful football if they are to pressure this talented Austrian side from the first to last minute.

There’s plenty of experience in this home squad, with Stuart Dallas and Steven Davis expected to start. Whether or not that can be enough to control the game remains to be seen, but the hosts will hope to at least claim a point here.

Our prediction: Northern Ireland 1-1 Austria
