Wales vs Ireland Prediction: Nations League Match on 15.11.2020
Wales are in a strong position in Group B4 of the Nations League, and they could potentially win the group this weekend should results go their way. But, will they be able to get the three points that they need?
Nations League Preview
Wales have been in excellent form throughout the Nations League so far, as they have won three of their four games. All three of these wins have been 1-0 successes, while they are also yet to concede a goal. Ryan Giggs will not be in attendance for the fixture this weekend, which means that the pressure will be on the assistance coach to get a positive result that could see Wales promoted to Group A. The last international break was a mixed bag for Wales, as they lost once, drew once and won once. The winning fixture was their most recent match, as they defeated Bulgaria 1-0 away from home. Jonny Williams scored the winner in that fixture in the 85th minute. Gareth Bale could be back in contention for a start in this fixture after he missed the previous fixtures last month as he was trying to get match fit for Tottenham Hotspur.
Ireland will not be able to compete for a finish at the top of the group, but there will still be high stakes for the away side as they look to avoid finishing bottom of the group. Ireland are yet to win a game in this group so far, as the only points that they have picked up have come in the form of draws against Wales and Bulgaria. They also suffered defeat in their most recent Nations League outing, as they were beaten 1-0 by Finland.
Wales vs Ireland Head To Head
There have been three draws in the last six meetings between these rivals, which includes the 0-0 draw that was played out in October. That draw ended a run of two wins in a row for Wales, as they beat Ireland in both matches that were played in the last Nations League campaign. Ireland’s last win in Wales came back in 2017.
Wales vs Ireland Prediction
Wales have been more consistent throughout this Nations League group so far, and that form will be a big plus in their favour coming into this fixture. We expect Wales to maintain their form and get over the line to achieve promotion starting with a win against Ireland.
