Where To Watch Republic Of Ireland Vs Northern Ireland? All The TV Details
By Gary Connaughton Updated

The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will meet for the first time since 2011 at the Aviva Stadium tonight, with both sides hoping to turnaround what have been poor runs of form. Martin O'Neill especially could do with securing a result in this game, with mounting questions over his future as Ireland boss. If you are not heading to tonight's game, don't worry. We have all the details on where to watch Republic of Ireland vs Northern Ireland.

Where To Watch Republic Of Ireland Vs Northern Ireland?

Republic of Ireland vs Northern Ireland is being broadcast live on Sky Sports Football, with coverage getting underway at 7.30pm. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.

Are The Teams In Good Form?

No. Both sides have had fairly disastrous UEFA Nations League campaigns so far, with neither registering a win. They also look nailed on for relegation.

The Republic of Ireland lost home and away to Wales, drawing with Denmark in Dublin. The performances against the Welsh have been especially uninspiring, with O'Neill's team thoroughly outplayed by the visitors at the Aviva last month.

Northern Ireland meanwhile have lost all three of the matches so far, twice to Bosnia & Herzegovina and once to Austria. They host the Austrians on Sunday evening, and must win that game to have any chance of avoiding demotion to League 'C'.

Republic of Ireland Team News

Both managers are likely to use this match to test out some of the less-experienced members of their squad.

Martin O'Neill could choose to hand out a couple of debuts in this match, with Caoimhin Kelleher and Michael Obafemi both in contention for selection.

Obafemi especially looks likely to feature at some stage, with the Irish boss impressed with the impact he has made in training this week. With doubts about his international future now cast aside, he would surely receive a warm reception from the Dublin crowd.

Glenn Whelan will captain the side on his 85th and final appearance for his country, while other players who may be included in the starting XI include Sean Maguire and Enda Stevens.

Robbie Brady is also likely to return to the team after his lengthy lay-off from international football.
