In the first leg of the Nations League fixture, Ireland will face Ukraine in Dublin. After losing to the Welsh and not qualifying for the World Cup, the team was very upset, but Petrakov's poor mood should not stop them from performing well at the Aviva Stadium.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Republic of Ireland
In 2022, Ireland played three matches: two friendlies and one official match, as part of the Nations League. The friendlies came in March, when Ireland drew 2:2 with the Belgians and narrowly beat Lithuania 1:0, with the only goal coming from Parrott in the seventh minute added. However, the home side's start in the Nations League was a failure, as the Irish team lost away to the Armenian national squad 0:1. Spertsyan scored the only goal of the game in 74 minutes. It should be noted that the Irish team enjoyed a territorial advantage throughout the match, but they managed only two shots on target, which was not enough to score.
A very disappointing defeat to the Welsh left Petrakov's team out of the Mundial. It was doubly frustrating that Yarmolenko scored the game's only goal in a rather beautiful jump. At the same time, the team captain was the hero in the victory over Scotland in the semi-final of qualifying. We must admit that Wales' win was undeserved, the Ukraine national team created enough chances to score, but they couldn't score, although the goalkeeper of the Dragons was visibly nervous in the first half. The mood in the Ukraine team was poor, but such defeats were sometimes more motivating than some victories. In any case, we expect the team will be active in Dublin, and we believe that they are very capable of getting three points from Ireland.
Expert Betting Tips
The Ukraine national team did not deserve to lose in Cardiff and were definitely up for a couple of goals against the Welsh. There are upsets after downs and defeats against opponents after dry matches. We will not be surprised if the Ukraine national team score a couple of goals on Wednesday and at least do not lose to their opponents, who, by the way, had a poor game a few days ago against a team that was far from top-flight Armenia. We choose the visitors' side.
