Republic of Ireland v Serbia - past meetings

The Republic of Ireland and Serbia will meet for the fifth time when they go head to head in the hunt for World Cup qualification in Dublin on Tuesday evening.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at how previous encounters have panned out.

May 24, 2008: Republic of Ireland 1 Serbia 1

Serbia headed to Ireland for the first time since independence for a friendly as new manager Giovanni Trapattoni launched his reign. The visitors led after Marko Pantelic took full advantage of Paul McShane's error with 15 minutes remaining, but substitute Andy Keogh spared Trapattoni defeat with a stoppage-time equaliser.

August 15, 2012: Serbia 0 Republic of Ireland 0

Trapattoni started to blood a new generation of players after a disappointing Euro 2012 finals campaign and handed James McCarthy and James McClean starts in a friendly in Belgrade. Seasoned campaigners Jonathan Walters and Aiden McGeady went closest to breaking the deadlock, although it took a good second-half save by goalkeeper Keiren Westwood to keep out Zdravko Kuzmanovic's late free-kick.

March 5, 2014: Republic of Ireland 1 Serbia 2

Martin O'Neill suffered his first defeat in his third game as Ireland manager as Serbia came from behind to win another friendly encounter at the Aviva Stadium. Wes Hoolahan had already seen an earlier effort harshly ruled out for offside when Shane Long put the home side ahead, but James McCarthy's own goal and a second from Filip Djordjevic proved decisive.

September 5, 2016: Serbia 2 Republic of Ireland 2

The first competitive meeting between the two sides came during the opening round of fixtures in the current campaign, with Ireland striking late to secure a potentially priceless point in Belgrade. Jeff Hendrick got the visitors off to the perfect start, but goals from Filip Kostic and Dusan Tadic within seven second-half minutes looked to have won the day until Daryl Murphy chose the perfect moment to open his international account.
