Who will win? says…

Ireland's positive run of results since Mick McCarthy took over as manager may not play much of a part in this international friendly with Bulgaria.

After all, McCarthy's men come into the clash following their hosting of Switzerland and there are bigger things to worry about that a dead-rubber contest here.

But the boss will be keen to maintain some momentum heading into Ireland's final four Euro 2020 qualifiers later this autumn.

Bulgaria face Ireland after playing England at Wembley and have not exactly shone in Euro 2020 qualifying so far.

This could well be an experimental match for both sides - and the quality of the game could suffer accordingly.


Prediction: Ireland 1-0 Bulgaria
