Low-scoring contest expected
Ireland and Scotland go face to face in Dublin on Saturday night with the hosts chasing a primary win after back-to-back defeats by Armenia and Ukraine.
Scotland’s opening Nations League Group B1 fixture brought a 2-0 victory over Armenia, although it wasn’t essentially the most entertaining of matches.
The earlier three conferences between the edges have produced a complete of 4 goals – a 1-0 house win for every followed by a 1-1 draw in the latest sport in June 2015.
We’re expecting an analogous story and for goals to be at a premium on the Aviva Stadium.

Scotland can edge it
Scotland have been beneath par in the defeat by Ukraine, which broke a run of eight games without defeat.
But Steve Clarke’s side have been dominant towards Armenia and absolutely deserved their 2-0 victory. Ireland, in contrast, have seemed devoid of ideas and confidence in dropping their opening two group games.
Ireland had also enjoyed an eight-match unbeaten run before that, which included attracts in opposition to Portugal and Belgium, however except they enhance quick it is onerous to see past one other win without conceding.
Tip: Scotland to win to nil @
McGinn should watch his step
Aston Villa’s John McGinn has been a key member of Scotland’s side in recent times and has 12 goals in 46 matches as a midfielder who combines commitment and creativity.
The former quality means he collects his justifiable share of yellow playing cards, with 10 this season for club and country, the most recent coming in Scotland’s defeat by Ukraine.
The first 9 of these got here in clusters as he twice collected two in 4 games and had one run of 5 in nine matches. We assume the pace of Callum Robinson might entice him right into a challenge that earns him another yellow.
