Charlie Nicholas' World Cup Qualifier predictions: Wales and Republic of Ireland
Last Updated: 06/10/17 8:35pm
Charlie Nicholas analyses important World Cup Qualifiers for Wales and Republic of Ireland and predicts the outcomes.
The two nations are on a Group D collision course for a crucial final qualifier at the Principality Stadium on Monday night - but first they face Georgia and Moldova respectively.
Here's what Charlie is predicting for the Friday night clashes...
Georgia v Wales - Friday, live on Sky Sports Football from 4.30pm
Gareth Bale is out and Georgia is not an easy away day so it will have to be a grinding performance from Wales.
I do think they will get the result they need though, with tension high and discipline likely to be key against a very physical side.
I would be looking to give Ben Woodburn a start after being so influential in his last two games but Hal Robson-Kanu could be the hero.
Charlie predicts: 0-1 and Robson-Kanu to score first (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Republic of Ireland v Moldova - Friday, live on Sky Sports Football from 7.15pm
This should be a comfortable win for Ireland, even if they are not a side that scores a lot of goals.
Shane Long's struggles are a particular concern but I can see a few different players chipping in and helping them out on Friday.
James McClean and Robbie Brady are both suspended and that's an issue but the Republic should have enough quality to secure a comfortable victory.
Charlie predicts: 3-0 and Aiden McGeady to score first (15/1 with Sky Bet)
