On Friday, 13th October, in the midst of the European Championship 2024 qualifiers, the Republic of Ireland squad will encounter the national team of Greece. The hosts, currently residing in fourth position, are lagging six points behind their forthcoming adversaries, whereas the Greeks stand with decent chances of entering their first major tournament since 2014.

Predicted Line-ups

Republic of Ireland: Bazunu; O'Shea, Collins, Duffy; Doherty, Cullen, Browne, Manning; Ogbene, Idah; Ferguson.
Greece: Vlachodimos; Rota, Mavropanos, Chatzidiakos, Tsimikas; Bakasetas, Bouchalakis, Pelkas; Masouras, Pavlidis, Fountas.

Stadium

The clash will play out in Dublin, at Aviva Stadium.

Republic of Ireland

After missing out on the major international tournaments following their exit from Euro 2016 quartefinals by France, the Republic of Ireland is quite likely to sadly watch next summer's continental championship from the comfort of home. Through five of eight matches played in the qualifiers, the Irish have managed to accumulate a measly three points, lagging six points behind the Netherlands who currently clutch second place, having additionally completed one more match. Having suffered a loss in Greece (2:1) in June, the home team managed to secure their sole victory a few days later against Gibraltar (3:0). However, last month saw the host's hopes for qualification utterly dashed due to a defeat in France (2:0) and then by the Netherlands (1:2) the following week. Goals by Cody Gakpo and Wout Weghorst tipped the balance after Adam Idah successfully completed a penalty shoot out. Nonetheless, it's worth mentioning that the Irish side has managed to score in 14 of their last 15 home matches in Euro qualifiers. 

Greece

In contrast, Greece cannot afford any slip-ups if they hope to participate in a major international competition for the first time since the 2014 World Cup, where the team managed to reach the knockout stage. The blue-whites occupy third place in the tournament table, having levelled up in points with the Dutch team, who still hold the advantage of an extra match at hand. Having defeated Ireland (2:1), the "Ellines" then bent to the French (1:0) and the "Tulips" (3:0), ultimately managing to trounce Gibraltar (5:0) easily. West Ham's newcomer, Dinos Mavropanos, contributed a brace, as did Georgios Masouras, while another goal is credited to Dimitrios Pelkas. Greece also managed to win only one out of their last six matches on foreign turf, and have only celebrated victory in three out of their last 13 Euro qualifiers on foreign ground. 

Head-to-Head Matches

The hosts have not managed to secure a victory in their four previous encounters with Greece, and the first leg match in June culminated in a 2:1 victory for the blue-whites.

Match Prediction: Republic of Ireland v Greece

A draw will not suffice to sustain Ireland's hopes of placing second, if the Netherlands succeed in defeating France. It's certain that the hosts will give their all in this home game, yet securing three points will prove particularly challenging. In recent times, Greece have been in great form and hope to qualify for Euro 2024 in Germany next summer. Given their decent squad, the "Ellines" can at least prevent a defeat Friday evening.

Goals Prediction 

The Irish team will storm their opposition's posts from the get-go, a scenario that the Greeks will certainly favour. Capitalising on swift counterattacks, the blue-whites will consistently threaten Bazunu. Predicting both teams to score, as occurred in their June encounter.

Corner Kicks Prediction

As vehement proponents of classic British football enriched with plenty of set pieces, the Irish team will certainly take at least 4 corner kicks.

Yellow Card Prediction

This match is set to be a "do-or-die" scenario for both teams, considering the tournament situation. Neither team can afford to lose points. Anticipating a Total Over 3.5 for yellow cards.

Score Prediction

Predicting a precise score of 1:2 in favour of the Greek team.
