Live in-play betting – 

Republic of Ireland will be looking to confirm their place in the World Cup next year by beating the Serbs in this game.

They are unbeaten in this qualifying series as they sit second in their group and are just 2 points behind top of the table Serbia whom they host in this encounter and two points ahead of Wales who are breathing down their necks.

They will consider this game a must win for them as there is only one automatic qualification spot in their group – they need to win this game and avoid the extra stress of the Play offs.

Serbia are sitting very pretty at the top of their qualifying table thanks in part to their 3-0 bashing of bottom of the table Moldova and they will be looking to beat this Irish team that they failed to beat at home.

They have four wins and three draws from their qualifying games so far and their form has been helped greatly by the contributions of Aleksandar Mitrovic of Newcastle who has scored five goals in these series.
