With World Cup 2022 qualifying points on offer, will it be a good end to the international break for the home nations?

ROI boss Stephen Kenny

The World Cup 2022 qualifiers for the Qatar spectacle continue on Tuesday and there are some cracking ties to look forward to before the international break comes to an end.

While some teams are relishing the chance to play again, the Republic of Ireland will be worried about their fortunes as they try to end their dismal run under boss Stephen Kenny, who has had to answer questions about his future.

Scotland also need a positive result on Tuesday after some indifferent performances, while there could be a cracking game on the cards as the Netherlands host Turkey.

Ireland to Come Unstuck Yet Again

It is fair to say Kenny has endured a miserable time since taking over as Ireland boss, but he has had some serious issues to deal with and it is no surprise to see the nation’s struggles.

Ireland’s young squad are inexperienced on the international stage and they face a Serbia side on Tuesday who have never lost to them in six previous attempts.

Serbia won the previous meeting between the two sides 3-2 earlier in the campaign and they will be confident of adding another win to the tally.

Ireland are winless in their last seven competitive matches at home and it is hard to look past anything but a Serbia win, which is on offer at 6/5.

Injury-Hit Scotland to Suffer on their Travels

Scotland travel to Austria on Tuesday, hoping to build on their recent 1-0 victory over Moldova, but they are still up against it in Group F.

The Scots are third in the group, one point ahead of Austria and two points behind second-placed Israel.

Austria have only tasted defeat in two of their previous 12 matches at home and with Scotland showing signs of inconsistency, it looks a sensible bet to back the home side to come out on top at 5/6.

Goals Galore Expected in Amsterdam

The Netherlands and Turkey meet in Amsterdam on Tuesday, with the visitors currently top of their qualifying group.

They beat Louis van Gaal’s side 4-2 back in March and both teams are well known for their high-scoring exploits.

The Netherlands have scored 16 goals in their previous five home matches in World Cup qualifiers, while Turkey have netted on 12 occasions in their previous five on the road.

In the previous five meetings between the pair, there have been 15 goals and both teams to score looks a solid bet at 1/1.

Punters looking for a bet in the goalscorer market could do worse than to consider Turkey star Burak Yilmaz.

The Lille ace has scored 29 goals for his country, with three of those coming against the Netherlands in March.

Yilmaz is 3/1 to score anytime and he offers good value, having scored 16 goals for Lille in Ligue 1 last season.
