Ireland will be looking to register its first win in the ongoing edition of the Nations League, as it plays hosts to neighbors Scotland this weekend.
The fans of the Republic of Ireland had great optimism as the League started, as it was placed in a relatively well-matched group 1 of League B. However, the fans were soon jolted to reality, as the team traveled to Yerevan to face Armenia for the first game, who started the game as underdogs on most football betting sites.
Eduard Spertsyan from the home team scored the lone goal of the match, handing Ireland a shock 1-0 defeat. They were then handed their second successive defeat by Ukraine, who traveled to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Viktor Tsyhankov scored for the visitors immediately after half-time, and the hosts weren’t able to reply.
Ireland now finds itself in the last spot in its group and will have to pick up a couple of victories in the upcoming games if it wants to dodge the relegation bullet.
The Scottish team was pretty disappointed after failing to qualify for the 6th consecutive edition of the FIFA World Cup, scheduled to be held in Qatar later this year. However, coach Steven Clarke has pepped up his team well, and Scotland began its Nations League journey with a convincing win over Armenia.
Scott McKenna and Anthony Ralston both scored their first international goals, striking in the 40th and the 28th minute respectively in front of a raucous home crowd. Having played just one match so far, it is still early for Scotland to predict its fate. But they will be happy with their current position at the top of the table, with a better goal difference compared to Ukraine.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Ireland vs Scotland Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at the Aviva Stadium, Glasgow, on 11th June 2022.
After a dismal start to the group stages, Stephen Kenny will be hoping that his team bounces back as it plays on home turf. John Egan is expected to miss this game, while Seamus Coleman, who is suffering from a groin injury, is racing against time to regain his fitness. Michael Obafemi is expected to start at the center of the field.
For the visitors, Scott McTominay is likely to feature in the starting eleven, along with Aaron Hickey. Nathan Patterson is likely to give this game a miss due to an injured ankle.
We are expecting a close contest between both the teams, and none of them is likely to get the full 3 points from this match.
Bet on a draw.
3 of the last 4 matches between the two teams have seen goals scored only at one end. 6 of the last 7 matches for Ireland have seen only one team, or none score, while 4 of the last 7 matches for Scotland haven’t paid a BTTS bet. We don't think both teams are going to get on the board in this match. In fact a 0-0 result would not surprise us at all.
Each of the last 5 games between the two teams has seen fewer than 3 goals scored in them. 3 of the last 5 games for Scotland and each of the last 5 games for Ireland too have seen fewer than 2.5 goals, adding weight to our recommendation.
