Republic of Ireland vs Moldova Preview

Republic of Ireland vs Moldova 

Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – Aviva Stadium

Date: 6th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Some terrible performances have brought Ireland from the brink of qualification to third position in the group.

Two of the worst results means they would be battling for a playoff spot here.

They have a chance of getting back into the running if they can win this game with a huge margin and also win their next game.

They are favourites for this game but whether they can live up to that billing is another issue entirely.

Their last three games have seen them draw two and lost one, failing to score more than one goal in any of those games.

Moldova are the weeping boys of this group as they have lost all their meetings with the top four teams in this group.

They look to have improved as they showed a much improved  performance in their last game against Wales.

They held the Euro 2016 semi-finalists to a goalless draw for 80 minutes before a Ben Woodburn special saw them lose that game 2-0 and they will be keen on frustrating another European team in this game.
