Irish to finish up on a high

The Republic of Ireland never really got going in their World Cup qualifying campaign this term but Stephen Kenny’s side look to have turned a corner. They got a huge win under their new boss last month, which was followed up by their spirited 0-0 draw with Portugal.

The Irish were good value for their point in the end, while they led 1-0 late on away to Portugal back in September. It’s been a campaign of near misses, which isn’t the worst outcome given this is clearly a transition period under a manager who wants to change the Irish outlook.

The visitors have now lost just once in eight matches and they head into this game having kept three clean sheets in a row. While they suffered a humiliating 1-0 loss to Luxembourg in Dublin in this group, Kenny’s side like good for some revenge.

Since their win in Dublin Luxembourg have lost six of nine games and they’ve lost three of their last four qualifiers. With the Irish looking solid and starting to control the ball more in the final third, back them to outclass the hosts here with a victory. Following the visitors’ streak of clean sheets, a 2-0 win which would take the Irish into third is my correct score prediction.
