How to watch Ireland v Scotland
Coverage starts at 4:15pm on RTÉ 2.
After a disappointing loss away to Armenia last weekend, Ireland would have hoped for a better display against Ukraine on Wednesday night. Sadly, that wasn't the case as a goal from Viktor Tsyhankov just after the interval sealed the win for the visitors.
It was an all round poor showing from Ireland with Nathan Collins and Jason Knight the only players showing some sort of intensity and quality during the 90 minutes.
After the game, Stephen Kenny spoke about where his side need to improve ahead of the game against Scotland.
The selection of our passes has to be a little bit better, and the crosses.
But the front three played well. Jason Knight was exceptional for periods, Chiedozie Ogbene was a threat and Callum Robinson linked the play.
But we went direct too often for my liking, and we have to address that.
Scotland fell to a defeat at the hands of Ukraine last week in their World Cup playoff semifinal but bounced back from the loss with a 2-0 victory over Armenia at Hampden Park on Wednesday.
First half strikes from Tony Ralston and Scott McKenna sealed the win for Steve Clarke's side and there's no doubt that Scotland will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the Nations League campaign with a win at the Aviva on Saturday.
With both Seamus Coleman and John Egan ruled out of the game against the Scots, Ireland are expected to make a number of changes to the side that started against Ukraine.
Ireland will need to show a new approach in their attacking output if they're to find their first ever Nations League victory.
