Match Facts

  1. The Republic of Ireland have never beaten Serbia in six previous attempts (D3 L3) and suffered a 3-2 defeat earlier this World Cup qualifying campaign.
  2. In three previous meetings in Ireland, Serbia have won two and drawn one, most recently a 1-0 victory in a World Cup qualifying match in Dublin thanks to a winning goal from Aleksandar Kolarov.
  3. Republic of Ireland are winless in their last seven competitive home games (D5 L2), only once having a longer such run without a victory (8 games between May 1967-October 1972).
  4. Serbia have won their last four away qualifying matches for major tournaments (including play-offs), their longest run since they became an independent nation. Their last away defeat in qualifying was against Ukraine in June 2019, a 5-0 loss.
  5. Each of Republic of Ireland’s last four home goals in competitive matches have come in the 85th minute or later. The Boys In Green have scored just three goals in their last seven home competitive matches, and never more than once in a match in that run.
  6. Since losing 5-0 to Ukraine in June 2019, Serbia have scored at least twice in all 10 of their qualifying matches (excluding play-offs), netting 27 goals in total (W7 D2 L1). However, they’ve also failed to keep a single clean sheet in this run (17 goals conceded).
  7. Shane Duffy rescued a point for Republic of Ireland against Azerbaijan last time out, netting his fifth goal for the national side in total – all five of his goals for Ireland have been headers.
  8. Serbia’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 17 goals in his last 12 appearances in qualifying matches (EUROs and World Cup), netting a brace in three of his four 2022 World Cup qualifiers so far.
