We Simulated Scotland vs Ireland On FIFA 15 To See Who Has The Digital Edge

We are absolutely pumped for Friday's crucial Euro 2016 Qualifier between Scotland and Ireland at Celtic Park, so much so that we literally couldn't wait for the match and had to ask the FIFA Gods who is going to come out on top.

Some of you may have seen the last time we used an EA Sports simulation to determine the outcome of an Irish sporting event, when Conor McGregor took on Dustin Poirier in the UFC last month.

On that occasion EA Sports were spot on and Conor McGregor won via first round KO in both the simulation, and in real life, so we were hoping for more of the same when it came to FIFA.

We had to edit the Team Management of both sides, and take a guess at the line-ups. We feel the Scotland team in the simulation is very close to what we will see on Friday, but Ireland were more difficult to predict thanks to Marc Wilson and Glen Whelan's injuries meaning our selections at centre-back, centre-mid, and striker could all be different, but due to the recent form of Jeff Hendrick and Shane Long, we had to put them in.


So here is how we got on in our simulation of Scotland vs Ireland:

EA Sports FIFA 15 predicts an Ireland win!

It was a bit of a smash and grab, but we'll take it! Scotland had the better chances, but Robbie Keane bagged a goal thanks to some shocking goalkeeping, and David Forde was absolutely heroic at around the 5 min mark in the video.



Lets hope the real result is something similar.
