Switzerland – Rep of Ireland Match Prediction | 15-10-2019 14:45

Now finding themselves in pole position to secure a spot at next years European Championships, Ireland have also continued to shine at the Aviva Stadium. Thursdays hosts have lost just one match in Dublin since November 2017. Shipping just a single goal in their four qualifying matchups, the Greens have also recorded five clean sheets in their last six matches across all competitions. Now holding a five-point buffer over Denmark and the mood in their camp at the highest it has been in recent memory, fans around the Aviva Stadium will be most impressed by their sides newfound defensive resolve. Starting with the hosts, while many had tipped Ireland as an outsider to secure an automatic spot out of Group D, Mick McCarthys men have really laid down an early marker. Securing a 2-0 win over Gibraltar in Dublin last time out, the former Ipswich boss has his side enjoy an unbeaten run in their opening four contest in Group D.

The referee will be C. Dell Cero from Spain. My opinion is that the draw could be on the cards in this game. The venue is Aviva Stadium in Dublin. This game will be played on the 5th of September. Ireland vs Switzerland prediction comes ahead of the European Championship qualifiers group D match. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams.

Hoping for a good game. Our Rep. We therefore see a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Switzerland when the referee blows for full-time. of Ireland v Switzerland tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - as well as up-to-date odds. We believe that Rep. of Ireland will have a tough ask to be putting a goal past this Switzerland side who we reckon should score at least once to gain the upper hand.

They have started these qualifiers strongly as they have 10 points from 4 games and are currently the group leaders. They are known for playing the direct style of football while being very tough on the defensive side. This will be the first competitive game between these two teams in their recent history. Switzerland, on the other hand, played only 2 games in this group, drawing once and winning once. Ireland has not lost any of their last 6 games played. I can see this being a very tight game as both teams are going to play an extremely careful brand of football. Both teams are looking to secure as good as a possible result, hoping to qualify for the European Championship.

Republic of Ireland vs Switzerland Best Bet

Boys in Green bagged two wins over Gibraltar (0-1 and 2-0), beat Georgia (1-0) and held on to a 1-1 draw in Denmark along the way, which promises them in a great mood. Theyve based such success on tough defensive displays and we feel Mick McCarthy will want more of the same, as his men build on a ten-point tally.

They have won 3 and drawn one game with a 6:1 goal difference. As I previously said, Ireland has enjoyed a really good start of these qualifiers. Their striker David McGoldrick who plays for Sheffield United will try to provide some goals for them in this game. They will heavily rely on their tough defense and midfield as well as some Set-Piece routines that they are known for.

Switzerland is relying on their striking force in Shaqiri and Seferovic to provide goalscoring for them. They will have all of their players ready to play in this game. Switzerland is playing the direct style of football not allowing many opportunities for their opponents. They have defeated Georgia and drawn against Denmark in what was an amazing match where both teams scored 3 goals each.

Republic of Ireland seem to be in a better place at this point as they havent seen a loss in almost a year with a more lenient schedule. Theyve beaten Georgia (0-2) and held Denmark to a thriller 3-3 draw and while a trip to Aviva Stadium will be a tough task, well surely see them very motivated.

Tipped for great heights upon exploding onto the scene forBasel in 2014, Embolo has since seena serious injury plague his career atSchalke and he hasnt quite reached his full potential just yet. That said, he is still only 22, showed glimmers of his brilliance last season and has begun this term, now atBorussia Monchengladbach, with two goals from his opening three matches on his day there are few who can stop him.

Ones to watch

Callum Robinson is yet to score his first international goal for theGreen Army, but has started the new Premier League season for Sheffield United like a house on fire, netting in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the weekend while establishing himself as a key member inChris Wilders starting XI. If he can transmit his Blades form over to the international stage, then Switzerland will have a very deadly and potent forward to contend with.
