Our prediction: Northern Ireland v Cyprus

All of the last three meetings between these two sides – dating back to 2002 – have ended in goalless draws, which doesn't suggest we're in for a goal-fest on Sunday.

Northern Ireland's dismal record in the Nations League has ensured they have been unable to make the most of the qualifying opportunities that it offers in the past but Baraclough will be hoping to change that.

A victory against Cyprus in their final international game of the summer would be a step in the right direction and certainly a real morale booster.

Our prediction: Northern Ireland 2-0 Cyprus (6/1 at Bet365)
