Ireland vs Switzerland

Aviva Stadium will host a highly-anticipated friendly between Republic of Ireland and Switzerland. The Boys in Green produced a fine display in a goalless draw with Belgium and they are likely to adopt yet another defence-minded approach against the Rossocrociati. Even though there are no fresh injury worries in John O’Shea’s team, both Matt Doherty and Festy Ebosele are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.

Murat Yakin’s men, on the other hand, defended well in a goalless draw with Denmark and even though first-choice goalkeeper Yann Sommer suffered an injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Lorient shot-stopper Yvon Mvogo is widely expected to replace Sommer in the starting XI, while Breel Embolo remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of the previous six meetings between the two teams.

Ireland x Switzerland

How the bookies view it

This is a tricky one to call but Switzerland are 13/10 favourites at 49jili while the Republic of Ireland are as big as 21/10 at 49jili. Given the Swiss penchant for draws of late, backing the stalemate at 27/11 with VBet might be the best option.

Head to head

The Republic of Ireland have a good record against Switzerland, winning eight of the 18 matches and losing just six. But it was the Swiss who had the edge when these teams last faced off in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, with a 1-1 Dublin draw followed by a 2-0 victory in Geneva.

Players to watch

Winger Mikey Johnston has been in incredible form since joining West Brom on loan from Celtic, with six goals in just eight appearances. He came off the bench for Ireland on Saturday and should get a start here, with Paddy Power pricing him at 11/5 for either a goal or assist.

Ruben Vargas is a threat for the Swiss and the Augsburg forward is 11/5 with 49jili casino to either score or set up a goal for someone else.

Recent Meetings

These two teams last met each other in the Euro 2020 qualifications. Switzerland claimed four points from the two meetings with the Boys in Green on the occasion.

Switzerland have picked up just one win in the previous seven visits to Republic of Ireland.

None of the previous six head-to-head meetings produced three or more goals.

Republic of Ireland vs Switzerland Prediction

Under 2.5 goals pick has to be the way to go at the 1.65 odds here. Both teams enter the tie off the back of goalless draws in recent friendlies. None of their previous six H2H matches produced three or more goals either. Four of Ireland’s last five affairs across competitions finished with fewer than three goals scored. The same scenario occurred in each of Switzerland’s last four outings in all competitions.

Murat Yakin is still searching for the winning formula. His Switzerland are struggling badly to create chances in the final third. They are winless in five successive outings in all competitions, managing only one win in the previous eight. On the other side, Republic of Ireland will come into this in sky-high spirits after a strong showing in a goalless draw to Belgium on Saturday. You can back the hosts to win or draw on Tuesday at the 1.66 odds.
