Ireland have got of to a fantastic start to their Euro qualifying campaign as they find themselves sat top on seven points after three games. This includes the point they got last time out as they withstood a heavy barrage of Danish pressure. Ireland have already played Gibraltar in this campaign, beating them 1-0 in the Mediterranean country.
Ireland will be without Ipswich midfielder Alan Judge after he broke his wrist at the final whistle in Denmark on Friday. The 30-year old fell awkwardly as the referee blew his whistle to leave a bittersweet feeling for the Irish team and fans.
Apart from that, manager Mick McCarthy has access to his whole squad, and will be hoping to maybe rotate his squad here against weaker opposition. However if McCarthy is looking for consistency and wanting to build momentum, the same team that played Denmark will probably play here.
Gibraltar are very loyal when it comes to their squad. Since their first competitive game, their squad hasn’t changed a great deal. Joint top goalscorers of all time Lee Casciaro, Liam Walker and Joseph Chipolina are all available and will likely keep their place in the starting XI.
After a 3-0 defeat to Georgia last time out, they will be hoping to put up a better fight this time.
Gibraltar have been on the wrong side of a few hidings since they played their first competitive game back in 2014. They will take confidence going into this game knowing that they only lost 1-0 back at home in March.
However, it is away from home that they have struggled to keep the goals out. To be honest, quite a few Irish players could get on the scoresheet in this one. The player we are backing here however is striker David McGoldrick. You can get him to score anytime at 1/2 which is a really short price for a single, but you could add him to a anytime goalscorer multi-bet tonight.
The small country of Gibraltar doesn’t quite have the resources and talent pool of a country like the Republic of Ireland. So when these two countries come together, it isn’t the question of who will win, it’s the question of How many goals will Ireland score on their way to winning? It is hard to pick a big odds bet for this one given how one sided we’re expecting the match to be but Irelans to win by four goals or more looks good for our banker Republic of Ireland prediction.
