Muscat: Fans are expecting Robbie Keane to find the net in his farewell game against Oman.
The 36-year-old Irish veteran who has already hit the target 67 times for Ireland has all betting odds in favour of him finding the net again.
According to bet365, the leading betting company in Europe, odds for Keane to score an opener are 21/10 while finding the back of the net anytime in the game is 8/13.
Ireland are strong favourites to win the game with 80% betting on their side. The chances seem against an Omani victory away at the Aviva stadium in Dublin with only 9/1 in favour.
The recent record of Oman seems poor, finishing six points behind Iran in their World Cup qualification group and losing three out of the last five matches. Ireland on the other hand enter the game as favourites for a third straight win over Oman in the past four years. Their recent form has been excellent winning seven of the last 10 matches against Oman.
The match will begin around 10:45pm Oman time.
