Republic of Ireland vs Belgium: prediction for the international friendly

A European clash on Friday evening!

Belgium will seek their seventh consecutive victory as they will come to Aviva Stadium in Dublin to face off against the Republic of Ireland. Match will begin on Saturday, March 23, at 6 PM CET.

Republic of Ireland

Ireland will not travel to Germany in summer, as they have fumbled in the qualifier, falling six times to France, Netherlands and Greece, as it is time to begin a new cycle for the 62th ranked team in the world.

Seeking their return to the World Cup in 2026 for the first time since 2002, Ireland will play top teams in the friendlies before starting a new Nations League season in the fall, placed in a group with England, Greece and Finland.

Belgium

As the golden generation of Belgium football is running out of chances to bring home a coveted trophy, the team has qualified for yet another Euro, rampaging through the group with Austria and Sweden.

Finishing the qualifier with zero losses, Belgium advanced to the final stage, where they will play Romania, Slovakia and a play-off Path B winner. However, there are still three months until the beginning of the event in Germany, as Belgium will seek to find a perfect roster to avoid the same collapse to the last World Cup, where the 4th ranked side did not even make the playoffs.

Prediction ⚽️

Belgium’s trip to Dublin in 2022 ended up in a “2-2” draw, as both teams will face each other in a friendly match once again.

The Republic of Ireland will try to stay competitive and while Belgium is going to play England in a few days, they are going to be motivated to prove themselves in 2024. Sportsbooks prefer the road team and we will do the same, betting on Belgium victory with 2.07 odds 🔥.
