Republic of Ireland welcome Luxembourg to the Aviva Stadium for their World Cup qualifier on Saturday night.

Ireland are hoping to turn around their chances after a winless start under manager Stephen Kenny.

The Irish lost 3-2 to Serbia on Wednesday in their opening fixture, while Luxembourg fell to 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar 1-0 in a friendly.

Luxembourg enjoyed a strong Nations League campaign and will fancy their chances at a stadium where Ireland are winless in four.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 7:45pm GMT at the Aviva Stadium.

How can I watch it?

The match is live on Sky Sports Main Event with coverage starting from 7:30pm GMT.

What is the team news?

Darren Randolph’s absence means Mark Travers is likely to start, while Shane Long and Callum Robinson are set to start up top.

The experienced duo of Vahid Selimovic and Dick Carlson are in the Luxembourg squad, but Gerson Rodrigues will likely lead the line for the visitors.

Predicted line-ups:

Republic of Ireland: Travers, Doherty, Coleman, Clark, O’Shea, Stevens, Hendrick, Cullen, Browne, Long, Robinson

Luxembourg: Moris, Jans, Gerson, Mahmutovic, Pinto, O.Thill, Pereira, Martins, V.Thill, Muratovic, Rodrigues

Odds:

Republic of Ireland: 1/2

Draw: 10/3

Luxembourg: 6/1

Prediction:

Ireland have experienced some truly horrendous form under Kenny, but they will surely come away with a much-needed win over Luxembourg. 3-1 Ireland.
