Scotland v Ireland: time, channel and team news

The Republic of Ireland will face Scotland in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday night. Everything you need to know about the game is here.

Where is it and where can I see it?

The match kicks off at 7:45pm at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Broadcast on RTÉ2 and Premier Sports 1.

How has Ireland fared?

They got off to a bad start, losing 1-0 away to Armenia and at home to Ukraine. But things are turning around for Stephen Kenny’s side.

After an impressive 3-0 win against Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in June, Ireland drew 1-1 after a tricky clash with Ukraine.

This is what the current group looks like.

Ireland need to beat Scotland and Armenia in Aviva on Tuesday to secure the top of the group and a chance for promotion, but they need other results to go their way.

This chance will be lost if Ukraine beats Armenia on Saturday at 2pm.

A victory on Saturday would likely secure Ireland’s place at this level, but a defeat means Tuesday’s clash in Dublin will become a relegation play-off of sorts.
