Football Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips
Ireland managed to claim their first win in Group B by beating Gibraltar with a 3-0 win. This win was what needed by Stephen Kenny to ease the pressure that was already pushing him to the edge following the back-to-back losses to group leaders France and Greece. They are now 3 points from 2nd placed Greece and this means another win is a must if they wish to claim the top seat.
Ireland possible starting lineup: Bazunu; Collins, Egan, Duffy; Browne, Cullen, Molumby, McClean; Ogbene, Idah, Knight

Netherlands bounced back from a 4-0 defeat to France thanks to a brace from Ake and Depay’s third to make it a 3-0 win against Gibraltar. They have leveled their points with Ireland now with a game advantage on hand. There is still hope for the Dutchmen and we can expect more from them as they take on Ireland on Sunday. This game will be very crucial for them hence they are not expected to drop a point in this round.
Netherlands possible starting lineup: Flekken; Geertruida, De Vrij, Van Dijk; Dumfries, De Roon, De Jong, Blind; Simons, Gakpo; Weghorst

Ireland & Netherlands Squad Analysis
Ireland came out on the wrong side in the match against France not just in terms of result but also in terms of injuries. Will Keane and Enda Stevens came off with injuries and are unlikely to be fit for this match. Red-hot Brighton striker Evan Ferguson will also be unavailable due to injury. These injuries leave the door open for James McClean and Aaron Connolly although Adam Idah could be their first-choice striker.
The Netherlands also had an injury concern in their match against Greece during the midweek. Defender Nathan Ake came off to be replaced by Stefan de Vrij. Although there’s no report on the progress or if it was a tactical switch, Ake could be out of contention here. Justin Bijlow and Memphis Depay are already unavailable after the duo withdrew even before their Thursday match.

Prediction: Republic of Ireland 0-2 the Netherlands
After a false start, the Netherlands have picked up pace and are looking the real deal with two straight wins. Republic of Ireland on the other hand, have been struggling for consistency with just one win out of four. There is going to be a bit of desperation for the hosts as another defeat would leave them on the ropes. Yet, it is the visitors who have an edge considering their recent form as well as their record on the road in the Euro qualifiers. That makes our prediction for Ireland vs Netherlands as a win for the Netherlands.
