Ireland v Austria Betting Preview
While Germany are likely to runaway with Group C, the battle for second spot is pretty tight at the moment between Sweden, Austria and Ireland. second placed Sweden hold a one point advantage over Austria and Ireland at the moment, after the Irish held out for a point in Solna on Friday against the Swedes. That could prove to be a great point for them if they can convert all three on Tuesday night. The Irish are trailing Austria heavily on goal difference, so they really need all three points out of this one.

Ireland v Austria Recommended Bet:
Ireland will have taken some confidence away from taking a point in Sweden on Friday night. They put in a hard working shift, and controlled patches of the game. Getting forward and creating chances was tough, and they didn’t manage to get a shot in on target in the game. They need to do better to try and take advantage of their home match against Austria on Tuesday night as they go into the match level with the visitors. This is only Ireland’s second home match of qualification, that previous home match resulting in a hammering by group leaders Germany. Four of Ireland’s remaining six qualification matches are at home and they need to grab all the points they can, starting with this one. That point in Solna on Friday night will have been a good one, only if they build on it with three points against Austria. If the Irish blow their lines on this one, a defeat could end up being pretty costly for them in the race for second spot.

Austria will provide some resistance for Ireland in this one, even though this is only their second away match of qualification. Their previous road trip was to Kazakhstan which ended in a  disappointing 0-0 draw. After failing to win in their opening two matches, they have turned it around with back to back wins, netting ten unanswered goals in their home matches against Kazakhstan and the Faroe Islands. The stakes are high for both nations in this one, neither are going to want to take a loss here and start falling behind in a tight race for second place in the group. Defeat would be highly costly. Austria are solid enough and will match up against Ireland in the middle of the park. Chances may be few and far between in this one.

This should be something of a tight game, but Ireland really have to grab the initiative on home soil It could therefore be worth looking at a Draw/Ireland Half Time/Full Time bet for a price of 7/2 at online bookmaker Bet365.

Ireland v Austria Head to Head
The Irish have struggled a bit in previous meetings with Austria. They have met twelve times before in history with Austria taking eight wins to the two by the Republic of Ireland. This is the first time that they will have met in World Cup qualifiers. The last time they met was in the Euro 1996 qualifiers and Austria won both of those matches 3-1. The last time Ireland beat Austria was back in the 1964 European Championship qualifiers.
