Ray Houghton has just terrified us with this scary stat on Germany


Kevin McGillicuddy

The exception proves the rule.

We know that we face a massive massive test, tonight, against Germany if we are to get any sort of result against the World Cup holders at the Aviva in our Euro 2016 qualifier.

We know, you don’t have to keep telling us.

But sometimes it helps to have a visual representation of how ruddy difficult it is going to be for Martin O’Neill’s side to get a point against the likes of Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze.

Germany have a frankly incredible away record with a stunning 29 wins out of their last 37 competitive away game, something which was mentioned by Ray Houghton on Newstalk breakfast this morning

But let us clutch some straws here and remind you that their only loss on the road has been to our fellow Euro 2016 hopefuls Poland.

So perhaps we too can catch them on the bounce.

But as pie-charts go, this one is frighteningly tart.
