Republic of Ireland vs Scotland: Our top betting tips

Republic of Ireland continued their horrid start to the Nations League on Wednesday evening. Can they get things started here? Find out with our Republic of Ireland vs Scotland match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

No separating these two

The first Republic of Ireland vs Scotland tip we offer up here is that the game will end all square. Republic of Ireland have been somewhat pathetic in their opening games but a match against Scotland comes with a little bit of extra spice and that could help them get their first point of the campaign. After all, Scotland aren’t exactly in amazing form. Sure, they beat Armenia on Wednesday but it was three without a win for the Scots before that. Their head to head record against Republic of Ireland isn’t great either; they’ve only won one of the past five clashes.

A lack of goals

Next up we’re backing the game to be a low scoring affair. Specifically we are betting on under 2.5 goals. Republic of Ireland have gone south of 2.5 goals in each of their last five games. Scotland meanwhile have gone under 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches. As for the head to head history, each of the last five meetings and seven of the past 10 have failed to reach the three goal marker.

Republic of Ireland are in desperate need to a result

These Nations League games can come in for criticism at times but a clash between these two countries brings an additional layer of intrigue. It will be interesting to see how they approach things; we are expecting a cagey affair where both sides wait for a mistake to open the game up.

Republic of Ireland cannot escape how poor they’ve been over the last couple of games. That said, they’ll look at this game as an opportunity to breathe life into their campaign and with a good track record against Scotland, it could well happen.

Republic of Ireland Predicted lineup – Kelleher, O’Shea, Duffy, Egan, Christie, Stevens, Hendrick, Hourihane, Robinson, Knight, Keane

Scotland somewhat threw the towel in during their quest to reach the World Cup but they bounced back well enough in the week to beat Armenia. Another victory here would be another step on getting over that heartbreak. It will take a big performance though.

Scotland Predicted lineup – Gordon, Henry, Souttar, McKenna, Ralston, Robertson, McGinn, Gilmour, Armstrong, Adams, Christie
