SERBIA VS IRELAND
These two nations meet again after Serbia took four points from the Republic of Ireland in 2018 World Cup Qualifying (WCQ), helping them to finish above this game's visitors and deny Ireland a first World Cup appearance since 2002.
However, with Serbia winning just one of their last 11 matches inside of 90 minutes (WI, D8, L2), the stage is set for some Irish revenge.
On home soil, the Serbs have been more shrewd. They've lost just two of their last ten home matches in standard time (W5, D3, L2), scoring first in six, and witnessing an average of 3.40 match goals per fixture.
Without a competitive win since June 2019, Ireland need a good start here considering their many on-field issues of late. Whilst the Irish have churned out six wins since WCQ 2018, the 'Boys in Green' have drawn 44.44% of their last 27 matches (W6, D 12, L9 - 90 minutes), with just nine of those 27 witnessing both teams score
PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 GOALS & SERBIA TO WIN. CS 1-0
