Republic of Ireland v Bulgaria

Republic of Ireland v Bulgaria (Kick-off 7.45pm). Darragh Maloney presents coverage of the friendly from Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The sides have not met since the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign, when the sides shared the spoils in two 1-1 draws, with Richard Dunne scoring in both matches. Bulgaria come into this match having played England in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Saturday, while the Republic faced Switzerland on Thursday. The hosts started their qualifying campaign in fine style and will be confident of topping their group, which also contains Denmark, Georgia and Gibraltar, while the Bulgarians' hopes of reaching the finals next year are already hanging by a thread.
