Republic of Ireland are all the rage with punters to beat Lithuania after they extended their unbeaten streak to seven matches with a 2-2 draw against Belgium at the weekend.
Ogbene And Brown Shine in Aviva
FIFA’s number one-ranked side led twice in Dublin on Saturday evening, but goals from Chiedozie Ogbene and Alan Browne were enough for the hosts to avoid a first home friendly defeat since March 2017.
Stephen Kenny’s side have since been clipped into 2/7 from 2/5 in the betting with BoyleSports to continue their run in Dublin on Tuesday night with a victory over Lithuania, who have failed to get the better of the Irish in four previous head-to-heads.
Chiedozie Ogbene, who was singled out for praise by his manager after a man of the match performance against Belgium, is a 13/8 shot to add to his international tally.
The chances of him opening the scoring have now been backed down to 5/1 from 11/2.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said:
“It was very creditable draw against the world’s best-ranked side and the Republic of Ireland go into the match against Lithuania backed by a wave of support we haven’t seen for some time.
“Confidence is really building behind the Boys in Green and the fact we’ve been forced down to 2/7 from 2/5 about a win shows a growing belief that Stephen Kenny has turned the tide.”
