Here is all you need to know ahead of the game for Ireland v Scotland.
When is Ireland vs Scotland?
Republic of Ireland vs Scotland is this Saturday in Hampden Park in Glasgow at 7:45 pm.
How can I watch Ireland vs Scotland?
The game will be shown live on RTE2, with coverage starting at 7pm. It will also be available to stream on RTE Player.
The Republic of Ireland will be playing their first match in 3 months, hoping to carry with them the momentum of the summer. Ireland beat Scotland 3-0 in June thanks to goals from Alan Browne, Troy Parrott and a wonder strike from Michael Obafemi and will be looking to a record a similar result tomorrow night.
Ireland have had a mixed campaign, picking up just four points from their four fixtures. With two fixtures left, they will be looking to rectify this and end their Nations League Campaign on a high.
Scotland on the other hand are coming into this match following an impressive 3-0 win over Ukraine on Wednesday. Registering 24 shots in the game, Scotland left it late with goals from John McGinn and Lyndon Dykes securing victory.
Following a poor performance in Dublin over the summer, Scotland will be full of confidence going into Saturday's match, desperate to prove themselves.
Republic of Ireland
Setting aside Caoimhin Kelleher's injury, the Republic of Ireland have all their key players at their disposal for selection on Saturday.
Robbie Brady is back in the Ireland squad for the first time in 18 months, a testament to his form at Preston and Matt Doherty looks set to earn some game-time after recovering from a pre-season injury.
With everybody fit, there looks to be competition in the Left wing-back position between Brady and McClean as well as in the midfield with Jeff Hendrick looking to squeeze in. Similary, Troy Parrott will be hoping to feature up front on Saturday's clash.
Here is the exciting team we would like to see line up on Saturday:

After being stretchered off the pitch in Wednesday's win, Everton's Nathan Patterson will not be available for selection. David Turnbull will also not feature in the squad this week having failed to shake off an ankle knock. Declan Gallagher and Josh Doig have been called up to the squad in response.
