Ireland v Oman

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Oman have kept clean sheets in nine of their last ten matches
Expert verdict
Anyone expecting an easy home win for Ireland over Oman may be disappointed. When the fixture was announced it may not have seemed great preparation for the start of the Euro 2016 qualifiers but Oman are a well-organised side – conceding just one goal in their last ten games – and may maintain parity until half-time.
