Ireland

Gibraltar welcome Mick McCarthy’s Republic of Ireland team to the Victoria Stadium on Saturday evening for the opening game of their Euro 2020 qualification campaign. It will be the first game of McCarthy’s second spell in charge of the country he represented 57 times during his playing career. It should be a pretty gentle reintroduction to international football for McCarthy, but he must ensure his team are not complacent.

Gibraltar vs Republic of Ireland Betting Tips: Form Guide

Gibraltar Looking For Steady Progress

Jeff Wood’s Gibraltar have enjoyed some encouraging results over recent months, with their UEFA Nations League campaign ending up being something of a success. Victories in any kind of competition are hard to come by for a country the size of Gibraltar, and they enjoyed two wins during the Nations League. The first of these was in October last year, when they made the trip to Armenia. They won 1-0 there, thanks to a goal from the penalty spot from Joseph Chipolina. They followed that victory up with a 2-1 home win over Lichtenstein. The Gibraltarians recovered from going a goal down in the 15th minute. Second-half goals from George Cabrera and Joseph Chipolina, who both scored with headers, saw them to victory, though.

Results since then have not been that great, though, with the Gibraltar team suffering consecutive defeats in their last two games. In the return fixture with Armenia, played in Gibraltar in November, they were hammered 6-2. Their final Nations League game saw them lose 4-0 away to Macedonia, a team who had also beaten them 2-0 in the game in Gibraltar.

Irish Eyes Want To Smile Again

Mick McCarthy opens his second spell in charge of his country on Saturday, and he will be hoping for an encouraging start for the Republic of Ireland, after a troubled recent period for the team. The Martin O’Neill era did not end well for the Republic, who have not scored a single goal in their last four matches. The last time they managed a goal was back in early September, when they drew 1-1 away to Poland in a friendly match. That result followed on the heels of a 4-1 bashing by Wales in Cardiff in the Nations League.

The run of four games in which Ireland have failed to score started in October, when they drew 0-0 with Denmark in the Nations League in Dublin. That result was followed up with 1-0 defeat to Wales, also in Dublin. After that, they played ‘local rivals’ Northern Ireland in Dublin in a friendly, and looked sluggish and uninspired in a 0-0 draw. Another goalless draw followed four days later in Aarhus, where they faced the return Nations League game with Denmark.

McCarthy will be looking to reignite the passion and commitment that was once a hallmark of Irish football.

Gibraltar vs Republic of Ireland Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides have played each other twice previously, with both of those games being qualifiers for Euro 2016. The first of the two games was in October 2014 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The home side won the game in emphatic style, triumphing 7-0. Robbie Keane scored a first-half hat trick for the Irish, with James McClean bagging a brace. The other goals were a Jordan Perez own goal and a Wes Hoolahan strike.

The second meeting came later in that same qualifying campaign, with the two sides meeting in Gibraltar in September 2015. It was another straightforward win for Martin O’Neill’s Irish team that evening. The final score was 4-0, with the goals coming from Cyrus Christie in the first half, Robbie Keane, who scored two after half-time, and Shane Long, who added a fourth with 11 minutes of normal time remaining.

Gibraltar vs Republic of Ireland Prediction: Narrow Away Win

If you are looking for Gibraltar vs Republic of Ireland betting tips for today, our prediction is that the Irish will win a dull and possibly scrappy game 2-0. Games like this are a potential minefield for teams like the Republic. They would be a massive scalp for Gibraltar, if the home side managed a win, but the Irish would receive little or no credit for winning, however convincing the final scoreline might be. This is a tricky game for McCarthy and his team, and they will look to navigate through it with a minimum of fuss. A 2-0 win would be a decent enough final score in the circumstances, given that the Irish are beginning a new era, and would just like to get on the plane with three vital points in the bag.
