Matt Le Tissier Tips Easy Ireland Win
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier tips Republic of Ireland to go on the rampage in their World Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands in Dublin tonight.
Germany look comfortable leading the way in 2014 World Cup qualifying Group C leaving Austria, Republic of Ireland and Sweden to slug it out for the runners-up spot and a possible trip to Rio next summer.
With Austria entertaining Sweden in Vienna, at least one of Ireland’s rivals will lose ground tonight and Giovanni Trapatonni’s men will looking to seize the advantage by beating the group whipping boys Faroe Islands.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “Giovanni Trapattoni will be more interested in making sure his team secures three points against the Faroe Islands than running in a hatful of goals but his players will have their tails up after the last two results and can rack up a big win for the fans.
A handicap bet looks the way to go with Ladbrokes offering 13/8 Ireland -3 goals against a side that shipped six in Austria last time.”
The Republic conceded two vital points when Austria scored an injury-time equaliser at the Aviva in March and gets the chance to make amends against the Faroes who have yet to earn a point in Group C. The sides met on Streymoy in October when the hosts frustrated Ireland in the first half before the visitors ran out 4-1 winners with an assured second performance.
Ireland go into tonight’s game full of confidence after holding England to a 1-1 at Wembley nine days ago before thumping Georgia 4-0 in Dublin on Sunday when Robbie Keane scored a hattrick.
