Wales and Republic of Ireland face off tonight in Cardiff, with the winner booking themselves a Play-off place, to keep their dreams of Russia next year alive.

Both sides have key players out with injuries. Wales are without Gareth Bale and the Irish are still without Coleman.

Wales are looking to keep their dream of making a first world cup since 1958 alive while ROI are looking for their first world cup since 2002. A win is needed for both teams to ensure that they at least secure a second-place playoff game. If results go there way, Wales could end the evening top of the group, but still, need to do their job before focusing on results elsewhere.

Both camps are full of optimism and it will surely be a cracker of a match tonight in Cardiff.

Who do you think will end up victorious from tonight’s crucial clash?
