Ireland – Serbia Preview

  • Rep. Ireland failed to make the most of their first home international in front of supporters since November 2019, requiring a late goal to earn a 1-1 draw with #112-ranked Azerbaijan. The pressure on head coach Stephen Kenny continues to grow, with Ireland’s own competitive winless streak extending to 15 (D8, L7 in 90 minutes) – the longest in the nation’s post-war history.
  • Whilst a home draw with Azerbaijan was not what the Irish wanted, just scoring alone ended a four-match run on home soil without a goal (D2, L2). That said, the last six of Ireland’s fixtures staged at Aviva Stadium have only produced a lowly 1.00 goals per game on average, giving Ireland’s defence some credit at any rate.
  • Following a 4-1 triumph against Luxembourg, Serbia eased to the top of World Cup Qualification Group A. After further boosting their hopes of securing back-to-back World Cup finals appearances for the first time as an independent nation, Serbia will now look to maintain their unbeaten H2H record (W3, D3) and make it a third victory in succession against the Irish.
  • An impressive away record in the last WCQ campaign (W3, D1, L1) was a big factor in Serbia qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, but more recently, they’ve won only two of their previous eight internationals played outside of Serbia (W2, D5, L1). Both of those victories saw them score inside the first 20 minutes.
  • Players to watch: Ireland number nine Adam Idah is still awaiting his first senior international goal, but his last four club goals have all arrived after HT. Serbia’s own number nine, Aleksandar Mitrović, is in amazing form having netted six goals in his last five appearances for club & country.
  • Hot stat: In only three of Ireland’s previous 15 international fixtures have they gained more than five corners inside 90 minutes.
