Serbia-Ireland A Group A match to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup will take place on Wednesday at 20:45 at the Rajko Mitic Stadium in Belgrade: analysis, predictions, and possible forms.
Serbia – Ireland | Wednesday night at 8.45
Serbia do not want to miss this first meeting to immediately challenge their favorite Portugal in Group A. Last year’s lone trumpet blast was a 5-0 victory over Russia four months ago. With everything in the hands of new coach Dragon Stojkovic, Rajkovic must be relied upon for this debut, with Goodelz, Milenkovic and Mitrovic as the defensive trio. In the center, Lasovich and Kostik will preside over the sidewalks, while Milinkovic-Savic and Lukik will work in the middle. Instead, Dusan Tadik will be working behind the forward Jovic-Mitrovic duo.
Ireland seems to be inevitably lagging behind in qualifying discourse, certainly compared to the Lusitanians, as well as the Slavs. Stephen Kenny, who replaces Mick McCarthy, has yet to win in the eight games he has played. So the aspirations are not very high, but at the same time we should try to take up this scene with pride and determination to give at least some signs of redemption. The starting eleven will be between traverses, Coleman, Duffy, Clark and Ozia. Strong midfielders, along with Robinson and McLean, Brady, Knight and Hendrick. The only striker should be Bournemouth center forward Shane Long.
With the hosts attacking and Ireland ready to work on the resume, the game promises to be quite tight. While not expecting too many goals, Serbia still sees themselves as the darlings of victory.
