Gibraltar v Ireland Preview

Gibraltar are pegged as a outsiders of Group D of Euro 2020 qualification. Their most recent competitive action was at the Nations League last year where they collected a W2 L4 record. The two victories which they recorded in their campaign were at home against Lichtenstein and away in Armenia. However, they have lost their last two played conceding 10 goals in the process following heavy defeats against Armenia and Macedonia at the back end of the Nations League. In their last seven games Gibraltar have won three and lost four. Each of their last three games played have actually made it over 2.5 goals. They have met Ireland before which was back in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Gibraltar last 7-0 away in Dublin, before losing 4-0 back at home against them.

 

Key-Facts – Gibraltar v Ireland

  • Gibraltar have conceded 10 goals in their last two internationals
  • Gibraltar have conceded 11 goals in their two previous games against Ireland
  • Ireland are winless in six away games

 

Ireland had a Nations League campaign to forget as they only collected two points from their four games played. They only managed to score the one goal in that sequence of matches as well, which were against Wales and Denmark. The Irish are not a side in any kind of form at the moment and they really need to come out firing in this Euro 2020 qualification match. Ireland have won only one of their last 10 internationals, losing five goals. Ireland have not scored in any of their last four matches played either.

To their credit defensively, they have only conceded one goal in their last four games. They surely have to recognise this as a chance to put on a bit of an attacking show. Ireland did do well in their last qualification campaign for a major tournament, finishing second behind Serbia in their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign. Ireland are winless in their last six games away from home, scoring just the one goal in that sequence of fixtures.

Gibraltar v Ireland Predictions

Ireland to win: there has been some poor form from Ireland recently, and in particular on the road. But they don’t give anything away at the back the least not very often. They really should be winning this fixture and an Ireland -3.25 Asian handicap is at 9/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 19th, 2019 at 3:50 p.m.)
