IT'S between Wales and Ireland for second place in Group D – and the odds have shifted towards Martin O'Neill's men.

The Welsh have been hit by a hammer blow with Gareth Bale ruled out of tonight's trip to Georgia and a likely decider against the Irish in Cardiff on Monday.

Without their talisman a draw would be acceptable to the Welsh at a tough venue while Ireland should leapfrog them with a gimme at home to whipping boys Moldova.

Georgia have held Ireland and Austria in Tbilisi and with drawing five of their eight games this could be another stalemate at 12-5 at Stan James so Georgia draw no bet is worth a look at 12-5 with Stan James. The Georgians are unbeaten in five games now and drew 1-1 in Cardiff.

Moldova have netted just one goal in the road, taking their only point in a 1-1 draw in Georgia.

It's a must-win for the Irish in Dublin and they are no bigger than 1-7 with Skybet so for value take the Irish -1 at 4-9 with Ladbrokes or to win to nil at 40-85 with McBookie.

If Ireland triumph and Wales fail to win O'Neill's men will need a point in Cardiff on Monday to clinch second spot.

Table-toppers Serbia should seal top spot by beating an Austria side whose only wins have been against Moldova and Austria.

The no-nonsense Serbs won 1-0 in Dublin and can repeat the feat. They are best 7-5 at Stan James and another 1-0 pays 7-1 at Marathonbet.

Group G will be won by Spain ahead of Italy and both should notch big wins tonight.

Spain entertain Albania and the goals line is set at four so consider Spain -3 at 7-4 with Paddy Power.

Italy take on Macedonia and they's not as prolific as the Spanish having netted 13 goals fewer. Italy are only 1-10 to win and if he starts consider in-form Ciro Immobile to score first at 10-3 with sportingbet.

    I would like to disagree about us in Georgia but can’t.
    Even with bale I had a draw in mind, with him out I would take the draw now and hope we beat Ireland.
    They were the width of a crossbar from winning in Cardiff and looked the more dangerous playing on the break.
    Maybe the onus is on them to attack us tomorrow which could play to our strength, which is playing on the break.
    Could we possibly hope for woodburn to come on late on again and net an equaliser or winner, hope so.
    I will go for draw 0-0 ht draw 1-1 ft
