Linfield vs Institute prediction
Happy New Year, guys! Wish you all the best to everyone and have even better 2020!
*I had a good rest and hope to have many successfully tips and long winning runs during 2020. I totally forgot about the disappointing December when I made dozen of mistakes due to different factors, maybe it was my weakest month for years, but hope January to be totally different. I will start the month with one pick from the Northern Ireland and it's between Linfield and Institute.
Linfield is a real title contender. They are with a game less than the league leaders Cliftonville and 3 points behind, so max points at Windsor Park in Belfast are absolutely required against one of the weakest teams in this league-Intsitute. Linfield made very stable results in Europe during the summer- they eliminated Torshavn from the Faroe Islands, Sutijeska from Montenegro and were so close to eliminate Qarabag beating them 3:2 at home, but lost in Azerbaijan with 2:1 and were eliminated on goals scored away from home. In Northern Ireland, they have the most expensive team amongst all the clubs in the main league, while Institute and Warrenpoint are undoubtedly the worst teams there.
Linfield has absolutely no problems against Institute when we look their recent games H2H since 2018. They had 6 games, all of them were won by Linfield at least with two goals difference in each of them. Linfield went into a very busy schedule and they had to play against all the other teams in top 5 excluding them. They were so close to beat one of the best Crusaders after missing a penalty for the final 1:1, while the league leaders Cliftonville were beaten 1:0 by Linfield in a game with two red cards. So, a game at home against Institute will be some kind of fresh air for them- it's expected to have a huge dominance in this match and to win big. Institute were dominated at home in the last round by Carrick Rangers( a team in the second part of the table) and lost 0:3, so at Windsor Park, it's very likely to lose one more time with similar result. -1 handicap for Linfield is a good choice here. AHs are still not opened in bet365, so that I will go with this one- it's the same as -1.5AH!
