Competition: International friendly
Market: USA win
Odds: 12/5 @ Bet365
With both teams missing out on this summers World Cup finals in Russia, USA will look to give their fans something to cheer about when they face off against Ireland in an international friendly on Saturday.
For Martin O’Neill’s Ireland side, after suffering a 5-1 loss to Denmark in their World Cup playoff matchup, The Greens are desperate to put their World Cup heartbreak behind them and start to rebuild with a new look squad. However, despite looking to the future and calling up a number of debutants, Ireland are coming off the back of 2-0 loss to France last week and along with losing their last three matches on the bounce, Ireland have also only managed to find the net in one of their last four.
As for the USA, after a poor qualifying campaign saw The Yanks fail to book their spot at this summers World Cup finals, many have questioned if America’s golden age has come to an end. However, while they will not be traveling to Russia this summer, the visitors on Saturday are coming off the back of a 3-0 win over Bolivia and are now unbeaten in their last four. While their is still much speculation if caretaker manager Dave Sarachan will take charge of the USA national team on a full time basis, The Yanks have now kept a clean sheet in their last three matches on the bounce and have now lost just one of their last nine matches away from the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.
