Ireland To Win

It is hard to have confidence in a team that hasn’t won a competitive match since beating Bulgaria 3-1 in 2019. Yes, it’s been that long folks! However, Ireland’s performances under embattled boss Stephen Kenny have been better than results indicate and hopefully , the former Dundalk manager’s luck will change on Saturday.

RTÉ 2 / Sky Sports Football

His side dominated Azerbaijan in the reverse fixture at the Aviva Stadium last month and should have more potency in attack with West Brom’s Callum Robinson likely to come in for Troy Parrott. Ireland should have the majority of possession on Saturday and with a bit more precision (and better finishing), that will hopefully lead to a much-delayed win. Let face it, Kenny desperately needs it too.

John Egan To Have A Shot On Target

Despite Kenny’s attempts to turn Ireland into a more cultured outfit, they still carry a huge threat from set-pieces. John Egan scored against Portugal and had a shot on target against Azerbaijan during the last international window. The Sheffield United centre back looks a fair price to find the target here too.

Aaron Connolly To Score Anytime

Despite some mixed recent form for club and country, Aaron Connolly is a player who always seems gets chances in a green shirt. Here’s hoping the Brighton man finally finishes one on Saturday, to jump start his international career.

James McClean To Be Carded

Anyone who has watched James McClean play regularly knows why this is a viable bet! He is now even more like to get in the referee’s bad books now that he’s operating in a defensive wing-back role under the current Ireland regime.
