Tip Reasoning

  • Current Ireland boss Stephen Kenny has a mere 21% win-rate during his tenure.
  • Scotland are unbeaten in four consecutive away internationals (W3, D1).
  • Ireland have not won a Nations League group game after 12 attempts.

Ireland need answers

Questions are being asked of Ireland boss Stephen Kenny’s credentials after back-to-back 1-0 defeats to open this Nations League has left Ireland scrambling to avoid relegation in the group.

Not only this, Kenny has overseen just five wins from his 24 so far and has already witnessed a run of three straight defeats without reply, an unwanted record which could be matched with yet another disappointing result in this encounter.

The Irish can at least take solace in the fact that Scotland haven’t beaten them in Dublin since 2000, yet it is the visitors who appear to be in the ascendency, and with a perfectly split H2H record (W4, D3, L4), Scotland taking the lead in the all-time standings is a distinct possibility.

Scotland eyeing up another promotion

Scotland eased the pain of their World Cup qualification failure with a 2-0 opening day victory over Armenia in the Nations League last time out, a confidence-boosting boost ahead of this encounter with their Celt neighbours.

Scotland are enjoying a fine run of form away from home as well, currently enjoying a stunning four-game run without defeat (W3, D1) which includes two games unbeaten against Austria, a side ranked 13 places above Ireland.

We predict that Scotland can win this game even as slight outsiders, and we are backing that up with a smaller stakes selection on a 2-0 away win for Steve Clarke’s Scotland.
