Republic of Ireland Preview – Can Irish eyes smile again?

Following three straight defeats in these World Cup qualifiers to date, Republic of Ireland sit joint-bottom of Group A along with their visitors, Azerbaijan, ahead of this basement clash at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday evening.

Losses to Serbia, Luxembourg and Portugal have virtually dashed the Republic’s dream of a place in the World Cup finals as they now trail 2nd placed Serbia by a seven-point margin prior to the halfway stage of the group matches.

The Irish have recorded just one win out of their last 15 matches in all competitions but the hosts have lost just two of their last 11 games on home soil but although they’ve never played Azerbaijan before, Republic of Ireland should be able to break their duck here.

Azerbaijan Preview – Can Azerbaijan halt losing slump?

Azerbaijan have also suffered three defeats on the trot in their World Cup qualifying campaign and now look likely to be battling it out with their hosts to avoid the wooden spoon in Group A, having lost to Portugal, Serbia and Luxembourg respectively.

World Cup qualifiers haven’t been a happy hunting ground for Azerbaijan overall as the visitors have lost nine out of their last 10 games at this level with only a 5-1 hammering of minnows, San Marino, to show for their troubles back in 2017.

Overall results away from home have also been poor as Azerbaijan have recorded just one win from their last nine games on the road in all competitions.
