Switzerland v Ireland : Odds slashed on lack of goals ahead of Euro Qualifier

Published

on

Unbeaten in Euro 2020 qualification Ireland head to Switzerland knowing a win will secure a top two finish in Group D.

However, victory for the hosts, who’re already guaranteed a place in the playoffs courtesy of the UEFA Nations League, will move to them within a point of Ireland.

Mick McCarthy’s side have conceded just two goals in six qualifiers so far, the best defensive record in the group.

But at the other end of the pitch they’ve struggled for goals. They fired a blank in Georgia on Saturday and have failed to score more than once in 11 of their last 13 games.

Under 2.5 goals has landed in all six of Ireland’s Euro 2020 qualifiers and it’s 4/7 to occur again in Geneva.

James Collins is again expected to lead the line for Republic Of Ireland and he’s 5/1 to open his Irish account by scoring anytime.

Switzerland must beat Ireland if they’re to have any hope of qualifying for next summer’s Euros via the group stage. Their defeat in a Denmark on Saturday was a huge blow.

The reverse fixture finished one all in Ireland with David McGoldrick bagging a late equaliser and it’s 7/1 for the same scoreline on Tuesday.

Whataretheodds spokesman Spencer James believes

“Ireland, like they have been throughout qualifying, will be tough to beat. They’re also struggling to score so it wouldn’t be the biggest shock in the world if the two sides take a share of the points. Which won’t be the worst result in the world of ROI.”

With home advantage Switzerland are 11/20 to bag all three points, the draw is available at 16/5 and Ireland, despite leading the group, are 13/2 to claim a vital away win.
