Group 8

 

Italy and the Republic of Ireland lead the line in group 8 with the Italians edging out ROI for first position. Both countries have yet to taste defeat but Italy will be very confident of qualifying with ROI having played an extra game. The pair play each other in Dublin in October and that game could decide who takes  the one and only automatic qualification spot and who has to settle for second.

Bulgaria could still be a threat to the pair, especially as they’ve yet to lose either in group 8. However, draws have heavily cost Bulgaria, with five draws from their six matches. Despite a creditable draw with Italy at home and a draw in ROI, the Bulgarians have shot themselves in the foot with poor results against in Montenegro and Georgia. Teams ROI and Italy have beaten earlier in qualification.

Cyprus, Montenegro and Georgia have done their best to make it hard for the leading two but their resistance has been futile and their hopes of springing a surprise look to have rapidly diminished. Bulgaria could rob ROI of second spot providing they win their remaining four fixtures, that includes a tough trip away in Turin with Italy.
