This is a very important game for both sides on the road to France 2016. Scotland are in third place in Group D, two points ahead of fourth-placed Ireland.
This is a must win game for both sides because Scotland need the points to keep up with group leaders Germany and Poland while Ireland surely need maximum points to give them a realistic chance of qualifying for Euro 2016.
The game should be a very interesting because The Republic Ireland are without a win in their last three Group D matches and Scotland are yet to win away from home in the group.
Football Betting Offers – Ireland are 7/5 to win, with Scotland in at 12/5 and the draw at 11/5.
Ireland – Striker Robbie Keane may miss the game due to a family bereavement and Aiden McGeady is also a doubt after struggling with groin and back injuries. Ireland will also be without Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter through injury.
Scotland – Should be at full strength thanks to the return of Steven Fletcher who has been out struggling with a slight knock.
Scotland seems to be the stronger of the two teams at the moment and manager Gordon Strachan has got the Scots playing really well.
This should be a close game but if Robbie Keane does miss the game then Ireland look a bit week going forward. For this reason you would have to fancy the Scots to come away with at least a point in which will, more than likely be a low scoring game.
