Ireland will host Wales on 11 October. Will the hosts be able to recover after a difficult confrontation with the Slovak national team? – you will find the answer in the forecast of our experts.
For Stephen Kenny’s charges, the absence of the Euro cannot be said to be a blow, but nevertheless, the state of the Irish before the fight with Wales can hardly be called satisfactory. The extremely offensive defeat from the Slovak national team in the penalty shootout is probably still in the heads of the players.
In the League of Nations, the Irish national team after two rounds took the third position with one point scored. We managed to get it thanks to a draw with the Bulgarians (1: 1).
Ryan Giggs allowed himself to make adjustments to his squad in a friendly against the British. As a result, defeat (0: 3) and a whole host of questions for the head coach. The nearest reserve is not yet ready to hold matches of this level.
Wales is the leader of the fourth group of the League of Nations. They managed to beat the national teams of Finland and Bulgaria with the same score 1: 0.
Teams have met each other 4 times over the past five years. Wales won twice and another meeting ended in a draw. One local triumph for the Irish
The Irish national team played 2.5 goals on TM in 8 of the last 10 matches
Wales finished 8 of last 10 away matches
10/16/18 Ireland Wales 0: 1
09/06/18 Wales Ireland 4: 1
10/09/17 Wales Ireland 0: 1
03.24.17 Ireland Wales 0: 0
In our opinion, the Wales national team still looks preferable in the upcoming confrontation, but it can be very difficult for the team to realize its potential. The Irish national team is always very dangerous, especially when it comes to home matches.
If the Irish succeed in recovering, then Ryan Giggs’ charges will be very difficult to count on three points. We believe that we will face a closed game with a small number of chances to score, and the guests will not leave the stadium without scored points. Considering all this, we propose to bet on the combined outcome.
Our prediction is that Wales will not lose plus the total is less than 4.5 goals. In the bookmaker’s office 1 x Bet, the current outcome can be played with odds of 1.60.
