Ireland held on for a decent draw away to Denmark in June and followed that with a 2-0 at this venue when hosting the minnows of Gibraltar three days later. A more comfortable margin was expected in the latter, but they got the job done, collected all three points in Group D and strengthened their chances of qualifying.
Irish Need Luck
Chipolina suffered the humiliation of scoring an own-goal on 30 minutes when put under heavy pressure and that lead was doubled thanks to a strike from Brady deep into injury time. There’s not too much to take from that one – an OG and a late goal against one of the lowest-ranked teams in the world – but the team had time to regroup and we should see a better performance here.
The betting has Switzerland as favourites to beat Ireland and that doesn’t come as a massive shock to us. Those in agreement with the bookies will get their hands on the 11/10 available at Bet365. A home cheer is yours at an appealing 11/4 – top price at Bet365.
