Republic of Ireland and Ukraine meet in Dublin on Wednesday evening, both looking to get back to winning ways after recent disappointments.


Stephen Kenny's side are still winless in the Nations League – having lost six and drawn five games since the competition's inception – but suffered arguably their worst result in it to date by losing 1-0 to Armenia on the weekend.

They wasted chance after chance before Eduard Spertsyan's long-range strike secured a famous victory for Joaquín Caparrós' team and will be determined to raise their game against their next opponents, who have some very dangerous players in their ranks.

Ukraine's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Wales on Sunday was a heartbreaker, ensuring that they won't be at Qatar 2022, and could serve as extra motivation for their trip to the Aviva Stadium.

It's the visitors' first game of the 2022/23 Nations League campaign and with Armenia currently top of Group B1, which also includes Scotland, you really do feel everything is to play for. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Republic of Ireland v Ukraine on TV and online.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland v Ukraine

Both sides will be determined to put the weekend's results behind them and Wednesday evening's game gives them a first chance to do so.

Ukraine's World Cup heartbreak is undoubtedly the bigger blow but we could see Kenny look to shake things up more than his opposite number after the defeat to Armenia.

It is now 11 Nations League games without a win for the hosts and their wait for a victory could go on with a score draw a likely result.

Our prediction: Republic of Ireland 1-1 Ukraine (5/1 at Bet365)
