ROI v. Switzerland: Visitors set to strike late and break Irish hearts

| 24.03.2016

Tomorrow’s clash offers a great chance for Martin O’Neill’s side to gel before the Euros and test themselves against an impressive Swiss side who they could meet in France this summer.

Switzerland built a reputation for late goals in their qualifying campaign, and have netted six times in the final 15 minutes of their last six games. We’re offering 9/2 on Switzerland to draw at half time, win at full time.

Potential Ireland debutants Alan Judge and Aberdeen’s Jonny Hayes have made the cut from O’Neill’s 40-man provisional squad, as have 109-cap veteran John O’Shea and regular goalscorer Shane Long. The Southampton forward has struck 14 times for the Boys in Green, including netting Ireland’s winner in October’s 1-0 triumph over Germany, and is 6/1 to score first tonight.

The Swiss qualified in second place in England’s group to secure their place in the Euros this summer and are bringing an impressive squad to Dublin for this clash.

Eintracht Frankfurt star Haris Seferovic is included after scoring twice in Switzerland’s recent 2-1 friendly win over Austria and we’re offering 23/10 on the imposing forward to score anytime.

Will Irish eyes be smiling after watching their impressive cluster of strikers look to establish a Euros starting berth against free-scoring Switzerland? We’re offering 19/10 on an Ireland win and 7/2 on the game producing four or more goals.
