Giovanni Trapattoni’s Ireland will face play-off debutants Estonia for a place in the Euro 2012 finals and Betfair punters rate Ireland as 4/9 favourites to get past their Baltic foe.
The ‘Boys in Green’, who will play away from home in the first leg, have took part in five play-offs and although their record is somewhat troubled confidence is high.
Betfair Spokesman Barry Orr commented today: ‘’It is definitely a dream draw for us and with Irelands price contracting from 4/5 to 4/9 it’s fair to say punters have been ploughing into an Irish victory’’
‘’If you were really adventurous you could back Ireland at 80/1 to win Euro 2012 but maybe that’s a step to far at this stage!’’
