Republic Of Ireland vs Luxembourg Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 18 of Ireland’s last 19 competitive matches.
  • Ireland have lost just one of their last ten games at home.
  • Luxembourg have lost seven of their last nine fixtures on the road.
  • Ireland have notched one or fewer goals in ten of their last 11 assignments.

Ireland show spirit in Serbia

Stephen Kenny’s depleted Republic of Ireland team produced a spirited display in Belgrade on Wednesday evening, and despite losing 3-2 in their Group A opener against Serbia, there were positives to take from their performance.

Ireland finally ended their dismal seven-match run without a goal with their brace at the Stadion Rajko Mitić, and their pass and move style of play was a welcome departure from the hoof and case philosophy of previous manager Martin O’Neill.

Luxembourg’s warm-up

Luxembourg meanwhile, were engaged in a friendly encounter with Qatar while the rest of their Group A opponents got stuck into some competitive action, and their game might lack edge on Saturday as a result.

The Red Lions were beaten 1-0 by next year’s World Cup hosts, while their overall record reads just three wins from their last 19 assignments. Luxembourg have rarely been hammered however, and only Portugal (twice) and Serbia beat them by two goals or more during that 19-game run.

Expect tight game in Dublin

Ireland are looking to play a more expansive brand of football under Stephen Kenny, though midweek brace in Serbia aside, goals have been extremely hard to come by.

The Republic have notched one or fewer goals in ten of their last 11 fixtures, while under 2.5 goals has landed in 18 of their last 19 competitive tussles since late 2018.

Luxembourg’s ability to dig in and keep the score down coupled with Ireland’s lack of cutting edge could produce another fixture with little goalmouth action on Saturday, and bettors are advised to stick to the under 2.5 goals market as a result.

Our 1-0 correct score prediction tips Ireland to eventually carve out a narrow victory however. Buoyed by their performance in Belgrade on Wednesday, and armed with a record of just one defeat in ten games in the Irish capital, the Boys in Green are worth backing to eke out a win against a Luxembourg outfit that were beaten in seven of their last nine contests on the road.
