Northern Ireland will be hoping to secure their place in League C of the Nations League when they make the trip to Group C2 leaders Greece on Tuesday evening (Greece 21/20, Draw 21/10, Northern Ireland 3/1 – Match Result).

The Green and White Army currently sit third in the group on five points, only above bottom side Cyprus on goal difference, which is the method being used to determine who finishes higher if they end up on the same amount of points with the two teams tied on head-to-head stats.

Greece have already secured promotion to League B, as they have a six-point lead at the summit, while second-place Kosovo are on six points and can still be consigned to the relegation play-outs if they lose to Cyprus and Northern Ireland manage to get a positive result in Athens.

With so much on the line, Northern Ireland boss Ian Baraclough has called on his side to get the result needed and ensure they are not still fighting to stay in League C come the end of play on Tuesday.

“When we first got together for the international window, it [relegation] was something that I spoke about, that we make sure that by the end of these 10 days we are still in the same group that we are in,” he said, as quoted by BBC Sport.

“It might be the last time we are together before the Euros. The Cyprus result [a 1-0 win over Greece on Saturday] might have been a surprise to some but I know that team can play, again they are a building nation.

“It would have been a disappointment for Greece and it means we have to come here and take care of business. It’s in our hands and if we do come away with a win then that is job done in that respect.”

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Group B4 leaders Norway know a point will do in their home clash against second-place Serbia to ensure they are promoted to League A of the Nations League (Norway 7/5, Draw 12/5, Serbia 19/10 – Match Result).

Both teams are locked on 10 points after five matches but it is Stale Solbakken’s side that are at the summit due to their better head-to-head record, having won the reverse fixture in Serbia 1-0.

Manchester City star Erling Haaland grabbed the only goal in that victory and he has gone on to notch another five strikes, leaving him one clear of Aleksandar Mitrovic in League B’s scoring charts.

The Norwegian hitman is 11/10 to score anytime and 16/5 to open the scoring, while Mitrovic is 8/5 to hit the back of the net during 90 minutes and 9/2 to grab the opener.

In the other Group B4 game, rock-bottom Sweden must beat Slovenia to avoid relegation to League C (Sweden 4/6, Draw 11/4, Slovenia 9/2 – Match Result).
