UEFA Nations League
Pick: Scotland to WIN
Odds: 2/1
Bookmaker: WilliamHill
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 9 June 2022)

Preview: Dublin’s Aviva Stadium hosts the first meeting between the Republic of Ireland and Scotland since their 1-1 draw at this same venue during EURO 2016 qualification. A result which prevented a third straight home win in this fixture for Ireland whilst preserving Scotland’s drought as the away side, which currently stands at 22 years.

Ireland – Kenny feel strain as UNL woes deepen?

Having put together an eight-match unbeaten run (W4 D4) prior to kicking off their third League B Nations League campaign, there was a genuine sense of optimism among supporters that the Republic of Ireland would improve upon dismal efforts in 2018 and 2020. The Irish had finished their previous two groups having not won a single game, and they are well on their way to achieving that dubious honour for a third time.

Successive 1-0 defeats, the first of them in Armenia before hosting an embattled Ukraine in Dublin, means The Boys in Green are still chasing that first win in this competition. They’ve now had twelve attempts, losing eight, and never managed more than a solitary goal across an entire group stage. By the looks of their early endeavours, though, Stephen Kenny’s side may not even surpass that modest target.

Key Stat: There have been no more than two goals in 10 of the past 12 matches involving Ireland, who are without a win in their last ten competitive home games.


Scotland Win To Nil



Scotland – Tartan Army keen to maintain winning momentum?

The Tartan Army were given something to celebrate as they got their belated Nations League campaign underway in encouraging fashion, producing a dominant display on Wednesday night to beat Armenia 2-0 at Hampden Park in Glasgow. It meant a first win in four for Steve Clarke’s side, who at least went some way to atoning for their non-performance seven days earlier at home to Ukraine in a World Cup play-off.

Clarke named a strong side against the Armenians and was rewarded with a convincing win that really ought to have yielded a bigger margin of victory. However, with this their third game inside ten days, and a trip to Yerevan for a rematch with Armenia to follow on Tuesday, changes are expected. Even if there will be a reluctance to tamper too much with a side boasting seven wins in its last eight competitive matches.

Key Stat: Eight of the last nine Scotland victories were without conceding, which includes each of the previous four away from home (three via 1-0 scorelines).

Ireland Vs Scotland Betting Advice

Those who follow OptaJoe on Twitter – which is an awesome account, by the way – will have seen this particular nugget recently. Essentially, only San Marino have scored fewer goals (0) in this competition than the Republic of Ireland (2). Stephen Kenny has now overseen eight of Ireland’s 12 Nations League matches and won none. So, it is fair to say that pressure is mounting on Kenny and his uninspiring side.


Republic of Ireland Vs Scotland – Key Facts:

  • Scotland would win only one of the past five head-to-heads (D1 L3) and none of the last three staged in Dublin, since a 2-1 victory in 2000 for a friendly international.
  • However, the sides could not have fared any different in this competition so far. Ireland remain without a win (D5 L7) having lost ‘to nil’ to both Armenia and Ukraine in this season’s edition.
  • Scotland, on the other hand, picked up their seventh Nations League win (D1 L3) when comfortably dispatching Armenia 2-0 in Glasgow in their sole fixture thus far this term.


By quite some contrast, Scotland have enjoyed this competition. Across 11 outings in the Nations League, the Tartan Army would saviour seven victories, which includes this year’s opener against Armenia, scoring 15. The latter is a staggering 13 more than their opponents, who went down 1-0 to the same Armenia who Scotland eased past in midweek. Only wholesale changes scuppers Scotland’s chances of victory in Dublin.
