Just three points cover the first four sides in Euro 2016 Qualifying Group D, and the teams in third (Scotland 10pts) and fourth (Republic of Ireland 8pts) face each other in a game which could finish one of their chances of qualifying should they lose – and that is especially true of the home side.

But Scotland can put the pressure firmly on Poland and Germany for one of the two automatic qualification spots if they collect all three points at the Aviva Stadium.

Bet365 and Ladbrokes offer the best odds of 7/5 on the Republic of Ireland, while Scotland can be backed at 12/5 with BetVictor and the draw at 11/5 with Bet365.

Although Scotland won the reverse fixture back in November, when Shaun Maloney scored a cracker (he’s 12/1 to score first here with Bet365), given that Ireland are without a win in their last three Group D games and Scotland have yet to win away from home in the group, the draw looks worth backing at those odds of 11/5.

And, in what looks certain to be a close game with few clear cut chances, we highly recommend backing ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ at odds of 8/15 with Bet365 or Ladbrokes.

Charlie Adam ScotlandWe also suggest a bet on the 1-1 at odds of 6/1 with Ladbrokes, while Charlie Adam has to be backed to score a goal in Dublin at massive looking odds of 15/2 with Unibet (7/2 elsewhere). The midfielder ended the domestic season in excellent goal scoring form for Stoke, with five goals in their last eight games. Register with Unibet here and you’ll also get a risk free £20 bet, so stick £20 on Charlie Adam to score to win £150, risk-free.

Finally, it is worth noting that if you place a £20 pre-match bet on this game with Paddy Power, they’ll give you a free £10 In-Play bet – click here to claim this offer.
