Republic of Ireland will look to warm up for next week’s pivotal World Cup clash with Wales by claiming a confidence-boosting victory over Moldova in Dublin.

Martin O’Neill’s side have gone four Group D games without a win and go into the penultimate round of fixtures in third place, one point behind the Dragons and five adrift of Serbia.

Scoring goals has been a problem for the men in green, but 7/10 they net three or more times here looks a gift for our Republic of Ireland vs Moldova betting predictions.

A Look At Republic of Ireland’s Betting Odds

Last month’s double header saw Ireland draw 1-1 in Georgia and then suffer a damaging 1-0 defeat to Serbia at Aviva Stadium.

Speaking after that latest setback, captain Jon Walters said: “We threw everything at them but just couldn’t get the goal.

“Hopefully, we’ve set ourselves up for a big finish and can get the two wins needed. There’s always belief in the dressing room and one thing’s for sure, we’ll fight to the very end.”

Ireland have netted just nine times in eight games, but three of those did come when beating Moldova in Chisinau 12 months ago.

Goal difference could still come into play if the Republic do sneak into second spot in the race for a place in the play-offs, so we’re not expecting anybody to ease off late on here.

That makes 6/5 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game worth adding to our Republic of Ireland vs Moldova betting tips.

A Look At Moldova’s Betting Odds

Moldova have picked up only two points so far, via a couple of draws with fellow strugglers Georgia, conceding 20 times in the process.

The visitors were beaten 4-0 in Wales and went down 3-0 in Serbia, so Ireland really should be looking to come through with an emphatic victory.

Don’t forget that Moldova only picked up one point from two Euro 2016 qualifiers against Liechtenstein!

Looking at the Republic of Ireland vs Moldova odds, we’re going for a correct score of 4-0 at 25/4.
