Blunt attack to cost Republic
The Republic of Ireland meet Denmark in the second leg of their World Cup play-off on Tuesday and another cagey affair is expected.
Saturday's opening clash was extremely tense, as the Republic sat back to keep the Danes at bay and seal a goalless draw.

Age Hareide's men did have chances though and, with Ireland struggling to test Kasper Schmeichel during the game in Copenhagen, their reticence in attack could be what costs them a place in Russia.

It has been a successful if hardly inspiring reign for Martin O'Neill since taking over the Republic four years ago, guiding them to Euro 2016 as well as picking up famous wins over Germany and Italy.

However, his playing squad has started to show its limitations in recent months and, with no new name emerging as the natural successor to Robbie Keane up front, goals have been at a premium, netting just 12 in 10 games in Group D.

Therefore defending has become their strength and they are again likely to try and invite pressure before attempting to spring a few surprises on the break, with the win which will book them a first trip to the World Cup since 2002 priced at n/a.

One thing that benefitted them in Copenhagen was the state of the Parken pitch and the ground staff at the Aviva could be tempted to prepare something similar, especially with the Irish rugby union team also in residence at the ground in November.

There is a feeling that Denmark are a team with a goal in them, netting 20 in qualifying, and the Republic's lack of attacking talent means one may well be all they need to make the World Cup.

Much like Scandinavian rivals Sweden, De Rod-Hvide are well organised but have a sprinkling of star quality.

Playmaker Christian Eriksen is head and shoulders above anyone else involved in the tie and his ability could see his side sneak a victory at n/a.

It will be tight though and under 2.5 goals n/a again looks a distinct possibility, especially with so much on the line.

The Aviva Stadium has a habit of coaxing performances out of the Republic but their stagnant attack is unlikely to suddenly ignite and see them through.

It means an away goal for Denmark could be the key and on what appears set to be a tense evening in The Fair City and a draw is on offer at n/a.

However, that will mean that just like their neighbours from the North, the Boys in Green will miss out on the World Cup.
