Tip Reasoning

  • Four of Republic of Ireland’s last seven internationals have ended all square.
  • Those stalemates include a 1-1 result against Qatar in Debrecen earlier this year.
  • The hosts have won just two of their last 18 games (D8, L8), while the visitors are winless in five starts (D1, L4).

Lack of action likely at the Aviva

There was little to separate Republic of Ireland and Qatar when they played out a 1-1 friendly draw in Debrecen earlier this year and we expect a similarly tight contest at Aviva Stadium this Tuesday night.

Teams’ motivation in friendly encounters can be questionable at the best of times but it really is difficult to envisage an all action clash this week based on the sides’ current circumstances and their meeting back in March.

Republic of Ireland managed to bag a 3-0 victory in Azerbaijan on Saturday, though it counted for little as they were officially eliminated from World Cup Qualifying by the end of the night.

Stephen Kenny’s men have endured a dreadful campaign overall, with that win in Baku marking their only success in six Group A starts, while they’ve secured just two wins from their last 18 internationals overall (D8, L8).

Wins hard to come by for both sides

With eight draws in that period and four stalemates in their last seven outings, we foresee matters ending all square again between these two sides on Tuesday, with Qatar also struggling of late.

The 2022 World Cup hosts need to seriously improve if they’re to take a hand at their own tournament next year, and while they performed well to reach the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the summer, they head to Dublin this week having lost four of their last five matches (D1).

This really does stand out as a pretty meaningless affair on paper and a drab 90 minutes awaits – particularly with the hosts now having no further competitive games to prepare for. Qatar have failed to net in three of their last five and likewise Republic of Ireland in two of their last five, so it may pay correct score backers to go with a 0-0 result.
