Competition: Nations League
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
In what is a crucial showdown at the foot of the League B1 table in midweek, Ireland will host Armenia on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend putting in a hugely worrying display, Ireland will know how important an immediate response is here. In their five Nations League matchups so far this year, they have recorded just a single victory, one draw and three defeats, scoring five and conceding five in return. Managing to muster a points tally of four from a possible 15, they open the final round of fixtures sat third in the League B1 standings and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the relegation place. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss away at British rivals Scotland, Ireland have managed to win just a pair of their previous seven contests across all formats. Likewise, it should be noted, Tuesday’s hosts have seen six of their last eight home matchups finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, knowing that they need a real miracle here, Armenia find themselves in the midst of what has been an extended rut. In their five Nations League matchups so far this year, they have recorded one win against four defeats, scoring two and conceding 14 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of three from a possible 15, they open the midweek fixtures sat rock-bottom of the League B1 standings and knowing that only a victory on Tuesday night will help them avoid the drop. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a thumping 5-0 defeat at home against Ukraine, Armenia have lost each of their last four Nations League contests. Likewise, with each of those four straight losses seeing over 1.5 goals by the final whistle, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
