Match in Focus

19:45 Fr 27May PMSK

Ireland v Holland

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Five of Ireland’s last seven games have featured under 2.5 goals
Expert verdict
This Holland side is a pale imitation of previous Dutch teams and they failed to qualify for Euro 2016, so Ireland have little to fear. The hosts have conceded just three goals in their last seven matches at the Aviva Stadium, displaying the defensive characteristics expected of an Martin O’Neil outfit, so expect another low-scoring game.
