Bala Town vs Sligo Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips

In this Europa Conference League qualifying fixture, Bala Town hosts Sligo Rovers. Both sides have been active of late and will be looking to get an edge in the first leg of their Round of 8 qualifying meeting.

Sligo Rovers to Win

Leading to this European encounter, Bala Town has had two preseason friendlies with dubious results. On the other hand, Sligo Rovers enter after a 3-1 victory in the Irish Premier Division. However, they managed to claim an impressive away draw against Drogheda to boost their confidence. Despite being on the road, we do not see anyone but them triumphing over their rivals, especially given the fact Bala Town has not had a competitive outing under their belt.

Over 2.5 Goals

The start of the 2022/23 campaign has seen Sligo Rovers score three goals in two of their three outings. On the other hand, Bala Town has only scored three goals in their two preseason engagements. However, they did concede six goals in the process, highlighting their defensive deficiencies. With Sligo scoring regularly and Bala conceding at the same rate, we expect to see an Over 2.5 Goals conclusion to this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Sligo Rovers have conceded just once in their three Premier Division outings this season. On the road and in continental competition, it will be difficult to hold their record. Moreover, Colin Caton's Bala will be wary of their threat and would have prepared accordingly. While their defence looks shaky, they should capitalize on their rival's weariness on the road. Expect them to trouble their rivals as this match ends with goals at both ends of the Park Hall.

Bala Town vs Sligo Rovers: Team News and Match Preview

Bala Town

Colin Caton would have wanted a greater number of preseason outings under his belt before leading Bala Town on the pitch. The stakes are raised further given the fact that continuance in the Europa Conference League will provide much-needed monetary benefits. Expect them to make it tough for their rivals after learning experiences against Cliftonville and TNS.

Sligo Rovers

Shelbourne and Finna Harps saw the might of Sligo Rovers as both sides conceded thrice against them. They will want more of the same against Bala Town as they make that trip to Wales. It will not be easy on the road as Drogheda showed they still have chinks in their armour. John Russell has had time to address them and it will be revealed on Thursday night whether his plans have borne fruit.
