Republic Ireland v Faroe Islands Betting Preview, 2014 World Cup Qualification, Friday 7th June 2013.

Republic Ireland are still very much in  the hunt of making the play off’s and will know that there can be no mistake in this match against the Faroe Islands who are currently 121 places below them in the offical Fifa Rankings and the players will certainly head into this game with plenty of confidence having held England to a recent 1-1 draw in a friendly match at Wembley Stadium followed by an impressive 4-0 victory against Georgia last time out.

The Faroe Islands are currently rock bottom of the group and have yet to pick up a point in their opening four matches, but no-one really expected them to do win any of their matches against either of the sides in this group and unfortunately another beating looks on the cards for manager Lars Olsen and his players.

Republic Ireland v Faroe Islands Recent Form

Republic Ireland : W D D D W
Faroe Islands : L L L L L

Republic Ireland have a clear advantage on recent form having remained unbeaten in their last five matches of which they have won two and drawn three. The Faroe Islands head into the game having lost their last five matches on the bounce and you have to go back to 2006 to find the last time they actually won a game.

Republic Ireland v Faroe Islands Match Betting Odds Market

Republic Ireland were impressive winners against Georgia last time out and having also held England to a 1-1 draw at Wembley Stadium previous to that, Giovanni Trapattoni’s side should comfortably beat a side that is ranked 121 places below them in the official fifa rankings, so it should come as no surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game with a best price of just 1.09 with Paddy Power currently on offer.

The Draw doesn’t look a likely outcome as none of the previous three meetings have even come close to finishing all square and this is reflected by the online bookmakers offering up huge odds of 11.00 with BetVictor.

Faroe Islands don’t have much chance of winning this game and with their last victory in a match coming over 7 years ago the online bookmakers didn’t really have much choice is offering ridiculous odds of 61.00 with BetVictor to cause what would be the biggest shock in International football for years and win this game.

Republic Ireland v Faroe Islands Betting Predictions

Difficult to really say much about this game as it really does seem impossible that The Faroe Island will cause Republic Ireland any serious problems during this match and the main question people are asking themselves is just how many goals will Giovanni Trapattoni’s side win by ?

Shane Long’s absence is unfortunate as he would certainly be the type of player that could of grabbed himself a few goals in this game, but the stage does seem to be set for veteran striker Robbie Keane to steal the headlines, as with this game making him the most capped Republic Ireland player in history we should expect to see the ex Spurs player rise to the occasion and score at least a couple of goals during this one.

The online bookmakers haven’t made it easy to make some profit on this game, but with Republic Ireland having been in impressive form recently the Asian Handicap -2.5 goals does look a bit of a shoe in here at a reasonable price as I fully expect the hosts to win this game by at least three goals come friday night in front of a packed out Aviva Stadium.
