This is by no means the best time to be a Republic of Ireland fan as they stare down the barrel of the Nations League relegation gun.


The last of their Nations League fixtures could be crucial as the bottom two sides battle it out in Group B4.

Manager Stephen Kenny is under pressure to inspire some optimism in his – and his squad’s – abilities after failing to qualify for Euro 2020 and now floundering in the Nations League.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland v Bulgaria

The term ‘cagey’ was effectively designed for this one. Neither side is proficient in finding the net, and neither is particularly airtight.

Ireland have performed woefully, with Finland and Wales streaking ahead despite little evidence of quality from either of the top two in the tournament so far.

Expect another tight encounter, and not a particularly exciting one at that.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland 0-0 Bulgaria
