Ireland vs Luxembourg: Prediction and Betting Tips
Ireland looking for their first win
Winless in 11 competitive matches, Ireland enter this match eyeing their first three points in the World Cup Qualifiers for Qatar 2022. Coach Stephen Kenny must be pleased with his team’s last performance despite losing to Serbia 3-2.
In that match, the Irish went ahead early in the first half but couldn’t hold on to their lead. It was their first goal scored in seven matches, something that could make Stephen Kenny content going into the Luxembourg game where the Irish need to be at their best scoring form.
Stephen Kenny’s biggest concern will be his defense as they have just three clean sheets in 12 matches. In recent games, Ireland didn’t concede many games since they were playing in League B of the Nations League.
Luxembourg Hoping for good start
Sitting at 98th place in the FIFA world rankings, Luxembourg are one of the weakest team in this group. They have not won in 14 World Cup qualifier away matches. They played in League C of the Nations League and finished second in group 1.
In their last match, they played Azerbaijan and drew 0-0. They were the better side in that match with 54% ball possession and 16 goal attempts but couldn’t score. Luxembourg have lost all their previous five meetings against Ireland.
- Ireland haven’t won in ten matches
- Ireland haven’t won at home in five matches
- Luxembourg have conceded 18 goals in the last five WCQ away matches
- Luxembourg have two clean sheets in 22 matches
- Luxembourg have scored in all of their last four away matches
Ireland vs Luxembourg Prediction
Stephen Kenny will focus on his attacking-minded players for this clash as the Irish need three points from this match. They haven’t been scoring often but the game against Serbia was a good test and they can build on that.
Luxembourg have always been a team losing by big margins to top teams. Top teams would play Luxembourg to improve their goal difference. But against teams of Ireland level that hasn’t been the case and coach Renhold Breu will make sure they won’t get a tough beating here.
