Who Will Win?

Ireland will enter this match against Scotland as the favourites. After beating South Africa in what has arguably been the tie of the Rugby World Cup so far, Andy Farrell’s men know that victory over Scotland will hand them the top spot in Pool B.

However, despite starting the competition with an unconvincing loss against South Africa, Scotland can still qualify for the quarter-finals if they beat Ireland this weekend. As a result, this game looks set to be a barnstormer where both sides will leave absolutely everything on the line.

Think you know which way the Ireland vs Scotland game will go? Vote in our poll below.

Head-to-Head

Ireland have won all of the last five meetings between the two sides. However, the statistics tell us that Ireland vs Scotland games tend to be close affairs.

In the last five meetings, Ireland have averaged 25 points per game, while Scotland have averaged 13.

Team Form

Ireland are coming into this clash in fine form. They’ve won all of their last five games, including a comprehensive 29-10 victory over England and a 13-8 victory over South Africa.

Meanwhile, although Scotland have also been in good form of late, they have narrow defeats over both France (30-27) and South Africa (18-3) on their resume.

Underneath our team form guide, you’ll find a detailed breakdown of how Ireland and Scotland have performed in their last five games, including the number of tries they’ve scored and their overall points difference.

Ireland vs Scotland 2023: Detailed Match Preview

On Saturday 07th October, 2023, Ireland will face Scotland at the Stade de France. Arguably one of the ties of the tournament so far, Ireland vs Scotland is crucial for deciding who advances from Pool B.

Ireland are in pole position and know that a win will see them top the pool. They will also top the pool if they gain a bonus point and Scotland do not, as they will finish above South Africa based on head-to-head record.

However, scenarios do exist where Soctland can qualify from the pool. For example, if they beat Ireland and deny Andy Farrell’s men a bonus point, they will finish second on the head-to-head rule and South Africa will top the pool. There are also scenarios where both sides can qualify ahead of the Springboks.

With so much on the line, both sides must go all out to win the game. Let us know in the comments below where you’ll be watching Ireland vs Scotland this weekend.
