Friday, at 20:00, Shamrock Rovers receives Sligo Rovers’ visit in the 6th round of Ireland’s first Irish football league. It’s a seemingly unbalanced match, considering how well the season started. Everything points to a new success for green-white!
He bets intense on Shamrock in the duel on the Tallaght Stadium in Dublin. The hosts are on the first place after the first matches of the season, with 4 wins and 13 active points (8-2 golaver). Sligo Rovers is a team that has avoided relegation limit in the previous season, and is now in 6th place (5-5 goals), with obvious offensive and defensive defenses. Shamrock did not receive a goal in the last three stages, which was imposed in front of St. Patricks (1-0) and Finn Harps (3-0), drawing with Dundalk (0-0), the en-titre champion in Ireland.
Sligo started weak season and lost matches against St. Patricks (0-1) and Cork (1-2), but is in a rebound from form after success with Finn Harps (2-1) and UC Dublin (1-0). We do not have to let ourselves be fooled. These two clubs are the last two to be ranked in Ireland and the matches did not have an extraordinary caliber, but rather the tough victories, determined by the defensive errors of Sligo’s opponents. We do not expect our guests to score in Dublin, in front of a team that trusts the fans and their fans.
Interestingly, the last seven consecutive matches between the two brought less than three goals each time, and the “GG” bet was only one winner in this series in a 1-1 draw. Otherwise, I witnessed Shamrock wins with 2-0 and 1-0, but also two surprising successes of white and red with 2-0 and 1-0. In fact, Sligo won the last direct match, 2-0 on his own at the end of the previous season. This time, Shamrock can take revenge and distance himself from the top of Ireland!
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1,90
