Wales vs Ireland Prediction 9 October 2017

Tournament: 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification
Location: Cardiff City Stadium
Match date: 09.10.2017 at 19:45

On October 9 2017 in the upcoming 10th round of the 2018 World Cup qualification campaign in Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium the local Wales national team will be visited by their guests Northern Ireland.

Even before the beginning of the qualification Wales were considered to be the favorites of their Group D. yet, they couldn’t avoid mistakes in the current campaign, in fact. Even though Wales haven’t lost a single game of their 9 played, they still drew five times and won four times which leaves them on the second place of the table one point below the leaders and one point above their closest rivals.

As for Ireland, they got back to the race for the first two places after the victory against Moldova 2:0 in the latest match. Anyway, Ireland were actually expected to outplay Moldova and yet before that they lose to Serbia 0:1 at home, drew Georgia 1:1, Austria 1:1 and Ireland 0:0,

The teams have already met five times during the last ten years. In those games Ireland won twice while the teams drew twice. In the first round of the current qualification campaign the teams also drew without scoring a single goal. It’s hard to even explain how important the upcoming game is for both teams. Any mistake may stop any team from making it to the final of the upcoming international forum. Considering the importance of the match and the ways both teams played, we think that there will be three or more goals scored in the upcoming match.
