Italy v Republic of Ireland (Kick-off 7.50pm). The World Cup qualifiers continue with this Group Eight clash at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari, as the group leaders meet in a crunch game. Or, to put it another way, we're facing the world champions on their home turf *pulls on shirt collar*. Our two away fixtures so far have yielded four points, as we defeated Georgia 2-1 in Szabo and drew 0-0 with Montenegro in Podgorica. Giovanni Trapattoni was the boss of Italy between 2000 and 2004, and will hope to use his vast knowledge of his national side to lead us to our first away victory over the Italians! Positive thoughts, people. Highlights of Northern Ireland V Slovenia can be seen on BBC1 at 10.45pm, where Stephen Watson introduces choice footage of the World Cup Group Three qualifier at Windsor Park in Belfast.
