Although the opening of the World Cup qualifiers for Stephen Kenny's team was terrible, the Republic of Ireland ended the group stage strongly, keeping Portugal and Serbia until a draw, but they were left without a ticket for Qatar. However, The Boys in Green started the UEFA Nation League badly, suffering a disgraceful 0-1 defeat to Armenia on the road, which means they are still waiting for their first triumph in this competition. Meanwhile, Ukraine was just one step away from the World Cup in Qatar, but The Blue and Yellow simply had no luck on Sunday, suffering a minimal 0-1 defeat by Wales, despite their great efforts. After the failure over the weekend, it remains to be seen whether coach Oleksandr Petrakov has a solution on how to regain much-needed confidence in his team.

Republic of Ireland vs Ukraine Betting Tips

Wednesday's clash will be the first meeting in their history between the Republic of Ireland and Ukraine - they haven't even played a single friendly match so far, so it's hard to predict the winner of the match. Before the defeat by Armenia, Ireland conceded a goal only from Belgium, while keeping the net intact in five of their six games, among them the match with Portugal, which ended without goals. Ukraine is not known for a strong defense, given that The Blue and Yellow have kept a clean sheet only once in the previous 15 games in all competitions, but still, I expect a strong defensive approach on Wednesday. Both teams desperately want a triumph in mid-week, but I believe that both teams will be careful on defense, so I don't believe that there will be too many chances at both ends of the field.
