Scotland vs Republic of Ireland – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Ireland hammered Scotland when the teams met back in June. Can the Boys in Green produce a repeat performance on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Republic of Ireland Double Chance

Republic of Ireland produced one of their best performances under manager Stephen Kenny when they breezed past Scotland in Dublin back in June, powering to a 3-0 victory that few saw coming. Emboldened by that result, the Irish can travel to Glasgow with confidence this weekend and they should provide stiff opposition to their Scotland again. Ireland have lost only three of their last 16 matches and they could be worth backing to avoid a loss at Hampden Park, especially at the generous prices on offer in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Having notched three times in their last meeting with Scotland, the Republic of Ireland will believe they have the tools in attack to breach the host’s defence on Saturday. Ireland have also found the net in seven of their last nine matches on the road and that record suggests they should register again this weekend. The Scots will be buoyed by their own 3-0 win over Ukraine on Wednesday, however, and they have failed to score just once in their last 12 tests on home soil overall. With those factors aligned, we recommend backing both teams to score at Hampden Park.

Scotland vs Republic of Ireland Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s Nations League meeting between Scotland and Republic of Ireland below.

Scotland Predicted Lineup

Captain Andrew Robertson remains sidelined for Scotland and the defender will miss Saturday’s game. Scotland impressed against Ukraine in midweek and manager Steve Clarke could keep faith with the same players that performed so well. Two-goal Lyndon Dykes made a huge impact off the bench, however, and he will hope to start.

Predicted Lineup for Scotland: Gordon – Patterson, Hendry, McKenna, Tierney – McTominay, McGregor – Armstrong, McGinn, Christie – Adams

Republic of Ireland Predicted Lineup

Defender Andrew Omobamidele was forced to withdraw from the Ireland squad with an injury, while Enda Stevens, Harry Arter, Will Keane and Adam Idah didn't make the cut for Stephen Kenny's selection. Expect to see a similar side to the one that beat Scotland in June.

Predicted Lineup for Republic of Ireland: Bazunu – Collins, Duffy, Egan – Ogbene, Cullen, Knight, McClean – Obafemi, Robinson
