Wales v Rep. Of Ireland betting preview  

Wales have a poor recent record against Ireland

Ryan Giggs has taken over as Wales manager after Chris Coleman failed to lead his team to the World Cup. The Welshmen recorded a 6-0 win against China that opened Ryan Giggs' tenure as boss. They were beaten 1-0 by Uruguay and drew 0-0 against Mexico in the following two friendlies. As a result, they have conceded only one goal in their three matches under Giggs' care so far.

Ashley Williams has retained his place and Paul Dummett is back in the squad after a three-year absence. Chris Mepham and James Chester will battle it out to partner Williams at the back while Andy King and Joe Ledley are in competition to partner Joe Allen in the middle of the park. Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Tom Lawrence are expected to support Sam Vokes up front since Hal Robson-Kanu announced his retirement from international duty recently.

Ireland don’t look equipped for a result here

Ireland have lost three of their last four, including back to back away trips against Turkey (1-0) and France (2-0). Their latest outing saw O'Neill's men beating 2-1 United States on early June. The Republic are unbeaten on their last five visits to Wales. In the last direct encounter, Martin O'Neill's side came to Cardiff and secured a win that ended Wales' World Cup hopes. They subsequently lost 1-5 on aggregate to Denmark in the play-offs. The Irish squad has only eight Premier League players, this is the fewest in a long time.

Martin O'Neill is working with a much-weakened squad. James McClean suffering an injury during Tuesday's training session while Harry Arter has decided to take a break from international football on account of a row he had with Roy Keane during the summer international window. Their inexperienced midfield includes 29-year-old Alan Judge and 31-year-old Shaun Williams, who each have a single cap and currently play in the Championship. Callum O'Dowda is in line to deputise on the left. Shane Long, Robbie Brady, Scott Hogan, James McCarthy and Sean Maguire are absent through injury.
