A feature of the Republic of Ireland’s campaign under Giovanni Trapattoni so far has been marked by a desire to not lose rather than any belief that winning is anything other than a happy bonus.
That ‘must not lose’ ethos was repeated ahead of tonight’s match with Sweden by captain Robbie Keane but the LA Galaxy man was also wary of suggesting that the side would set out for a stalemate in front of a home crowd.
“It’s a game we certainly can’t afford to lose, there’s no doubt about that,” he said.
“People talk about going in and trying to get a draw; it’s very hard for any player to go in and try to get a draw. You go in and try to get the three points.”
“It depends on the situation, the circumstances of when you are playing but we’ll be going into the game to try and get the three points but the most important thing is certainly not to lose the game.”
Sweden may indeed adopt a similar approach after a frustrating night between the sides back in April ended scoreless in a game which could well have gone Ireland’s way were it not for a few missed opportunities by West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long.
On that night the Swedes talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic was curtailed in his efforts but as always with the volatile Paris Saint-Germain man it takes only a moment of genius, or indeed madness, for him to make his mark on a game – as England fans will well remember from that goal back in November of last year.
Against a resolute Ireland the 9/2 price for him to score first looks fair, especially compared to Keane’s 11/2 pricing as Trapattoni’s Ireland are not set up to score from play but rather to nick one from a set-piece – found money could be placed optimistically on Richard Dunne or John O’Shea to open proceedings from a corner a big prices.
Otherwise though, expect a low scoring night in Dublin with 1-1 at 5/1 seeming a nice bet as the total goals scored market don’t offer much value.
With Ireland needing four points from this tie and the Austria game there will be much gnashing of teeth if this ends in anything less that shared spoils so while 11/5 isn’t a tantalising prospect it is the most likely outcome.
