Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Without Eriksen, Denmark may find it tough going against an organised Ireland side in Dublin. 

This game is likely to be tight, and the football predictions for it reflect that, with the home side under real pressure. 

An under 2.5 totals goals scored bet is at 4/7 with Bet365.

2 We fancy:

Martin O’Neill’s job is under threat after their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and their poor recent run of results. 

He is likely to batten down the hatches for this game, a low key football score prediction looks to be the way to go here. 

A 1-1 draw is at 5/1 with Sky Bet.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Ireland are prone to scoring early goals, with O’Neill’s side taking the lead in five of their last ten games. 

An early goal would settle the home side, and it brings in real value as a weekend football prediction.

Ireland to score first is at 6/5 with Ladbrokes.

One to Watch: James McClean

The Stoke midfielder missed the last round of Euro Nations previews, due to a wrist injury. He has been key for Ireland in the last 18 months, and he looks set to play a big part in their Euro Nations previews this time around.

He is at 5/2 to score anytime with Paddy Power.

Republic of Ireland vs Denmark Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

How will Denmark fare without Christian Eriksen?

These two sides have some very recent history between them, as it was an Eriksen-inspired Denmark that beat Ireland 5-1 in Dublin in the World Cup play offs almost a year ago.

Ireland will be looking for revenge, but their form since that game gives little cause for optimism within Ireland fans and the management. 

Arter’s return is tempered by the continued delay over the international future of Declan Rice, all of which will be an unwelcome distraction. 

Even if this game is not the most exciting spectacle, there are still options for your football bet tips and predictions of the international week. 

Ireland will essentially confirm their Euro Nations relegation if they lose, regardless of the result against Wales next week, and O’Neill knows they need to perform. 

BTTS and an under 2.5 total goals scored bet is at 24/5 with William Hill is another option to look at in your football betting tips for the weekend.
