Ireland v Germany Betting tips - World Cup Qualifying

Goals look on the cards today as Germany travel over to the Aviva Stadium to face an injury hit Republic Of Ireland side. The spine has been ripped out of the Ireland team through a combination of retirements and injury problems and the side looks as Open as I've ever seen it. John O' Shea will partner Darren O'Dea at centre half with Coleman and Ward, both arguably better going forward than defending at full back

The Ireland midfield will consist of only one holding player in Keith Andrews, with McCarthy pulling the strings, flanked by Fahey and McGeady. In the absence of Robbie Keane, Long still can't force his way into the increasingly mind boggling plans of Trapattoni as Cox and Walters start up top.

The Germans have scored an average of 2.44 goals in their last nine away games, failing to score less than twice on each of those occasions. They will be without Gomez and Lahm but with the likes of Ozil, Goetze and the pacey Reus in midfield, they should cut this Ireland team to shreds. Reus and Ozil have been on the German goal trail in recent matches and the former also netted for Dortmund v City in the Champions League. Reus in the double with the German victory is available at 3/1 with Ladbrokes while Ozil (who may be on pens) to net is a big 4.0 with Unibet.

Klose will start up top for Germany and with the crosses of Reus and the through balls and set pieces of Ozil, it's hard not to see at least one goal assist from either of the two and dutching both with Boylesports to assist anytime will get you a great price of 1.8 (if either assist, it's a winner)

Germany won't have it all their own way though as the much more potent attacking Ireland line up should give them a few problems of their own. McCarthy will be a good creative influence from the middle and should feed McGeady and Fahey for crosses into the two big front men. McGeady is 5/1 to assist anytime while Fahey is a whopping 8/1 with Boyles and big John Walters is 6.0 to net with Unibet.
