Scotland vs Ireland Prediction & Match Preview
Scotland vs Ireland
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 24 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hampden Park.
Scotland and Ukraine are placed second and third in the group table, and with the group stage campaign having entered its final stages, the two teams are under extreme pressure.
The Scots have an extra game in hand, but that is against toppers Ukraine, and there is just no guarantee if they will be able to make something out of it.
Anyhow, they have a 100% winning record so far disregarding a single loss, and this in itself will give them the confidence to go after the three points this Saturday. Moreover, they are in front of their home crowd this Saturday, where they will be vociferously supported by loyal fans.
They also have been performing well at home for quite some time now, and built a huge momentum as a result. They are finding the back of the net in plenty in such fixtures, and will go after a win at all cost, as they are targeting a promotion to the upper division.
However, one thing that needs to be noted is that their only defeat in the competition came against Ireland – against whom they will be lining up this Saturday. This is surely something that would be worrying the Scottish camp.
Meanwhile, the Irish remained winless all through the campaign so far, disregarding their fixture against the Scots. They started their campaign on a two-fixture losing streak, and failed to keep clean sheets in all but one game.
But they did manage to deliver a win with a three-goal margin against the Scots, and as such they will be high on confidence.
As things stand, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend between the two teams.
Four of the last five fixtures of Scotland had three or more goals, and they scored two or more goals in six of their former ten matches. They also lost just once at home in the past 15 months.
Furthermore, goals also came in plenty whenever these two teams locked horns in the past.
For these reasons, expect a high-scoring affair this Saturday between the two teams.
