Close game expected at the Stadion Rajko Mitić

With the home advantage and having never lost to the Republic of Ireland before, it is easy to see why Serbia are the favourites to win on Wednesday. However, the hosts have only won one of their last six international matches and their guests would happy to get their World Cup qualification process underway with an away point. There haven't been may goals in games involving these two sides lately, with just one of each nation's last six outings producing over 2.5 goals and we're expecting another low-scoring affair on Wednesday.

Serbia have called up Aleksandar Mitrovic and he will provide their focal point up-front, although the Fulham striker has only scored twice in the Premier League this season and appears to be lacking in confidence. Captain, Dusan Tadic will provide the creativity and a goal threat from midfield, but the Serbian defence is lacking some experience. Fiorentina defender, Nikola Milenkovic, 23, is the most capped defender in the squad with 26-caps and Red Star Belgrade's Milan Gajic, 25, could make his international debut.

Ireland lack experience between the sticks as O'Hara, Travers and Bazunu have a total of 4-caps between them. Everton and Ireland Captain, Seamus Coleman will lead out the Irish in an experienced defence that includes Shane Duffy, Ciaran Clark and Cyrus Christie. James McClean, Jeff Hendrick and Robbie Brady all have over 50-caps each in the Irish midfield, while 34-year-old Shane Long will be hoping to add to his 17 international goals but his own distinct lack of form for Bournemouth doesn't inspire much hope for the visitor's chances of scoring in Serbia.
