FIN vs IRE Dream11 Prediction: Republic of Ireland will travel to Finland on Wednesday for their next UEFA Nations League clash. Finland and the Republic of Ireland played out a tight encounter last month where the Finns returned from Dublin with the 1-0 win. The lack of goals and creativity continues to cost this Republic side as they are without a win in their four matches in 2020 and they have failed to score in their last three games now. This match may be a little more open than the reverse fixture given the fact Ireland are pretty much out of the running unless they manage a win here while Finland are competing with Wales for top spot and also need a positive result. They come off an excellent 2-0 win over Bulgaria at the weekend and they will be confident of another good result in this clash.
Date: 14 October, Wednesday
Time: 9:30 pm IST
Match: Finland vs Republic of Ireland
Place: Helsingin olympiastadion, Helsinki
Head-to-head (Last 5 Matches)
Finland wins: 1
Republic of Ireland wins: 3
Finland Team News
The Finns aim to build on a 2-0 win over Bulgaria, and a triumph over Ireland will see them keep their promotion hopes alive. Experienced attacker Teemu Pukki, who provided an assist for Robert Taylor at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the home team. The hosts want this win more than the visitors, and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from the match.
Injury update, unavailability
The hosts have no injury concerns to deal with, and will have all the players who were available for the win against Bulgaria available for selection for this game as well.
FIN Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Hradecky; Raitala, Toivio, Arajuuri, Uronen; Niskanen, Sparv, Kamara, Taylor; Pukki, Jensen
Subs (probable): Kamara, Karjalainen, Pohjanpalo
Republic of Ireland Team News
The Boys in Green, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Wales. Ireland are eyeing their fourth clean sheet in all competitions, but we do not believe that they are capable of preventing Finland attackers from scoring in Helsinki. The Irish have failed to score in five of their last seven competitive matches and they’re now looking incredibly short up front.
Injury update, unavailability
Ireland captain Seamus Coleman didn’t even join the squad this time, after a hamstring injury. Stephen Kenny will also be without Darragh Lenihan, who is injured.
IRE Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Randolph; Doherty, Duffy, Long, Stevens; Cullen, Hourihane; Horgan, Hendrick, Connolly; Idah
Subs (probable): Maguire, McCarthy, Robinson

Who will win FIN vs IRE Today Match Prediction Football
The Republic of Ireland are without a win in eight competitive games (D6 L2) – only once before have they endured a longer such run – and have to deal with a number of absentees. Finland, by comparison, have won four of their last six competitive matches and look in good shape to keep their momentum going with another victory on Wednesday. We predict a 2-1 win for Finland in today match prediction.
