Eire take on Germany on Thursday 8th October, 2015, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

First play third in European Champions Qualifying Group D this evening and with Germany currently reigning world champions there is definitely a degree of pressure on them to put in a performance. As for the Republic, they’ve been charming the world with the Keane double act in the press conferences, but will need more than that if they want to make it into the playoffs.

An away win would secure a top two spot for the Germans and all-but rule out the Republic making it to the tournament proper, so expect both sides to be motivated and hungry for the three points.
