Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United is a match between two completely equal teams. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

We think that this game may actually surprise us with goals. Sligo Rovers have had a bunch of goal-packed games since the start of the campaign. Drogheda, in turn, have not, but they are a team that can score goals and we think that they will be motivated to win against their direct opponent in the table. Both sides have similar stars and identical results, so we should see a fairly competitive match.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

As explained above, we see two teams with identical stats. Both teams have three wins, three defeats, and three draws since the start of the season. Overall, this is not a good performance and the teams have an equal chance ahead of this match. We cannot predict a winner here, therefore, our second Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United prediction is the draw.

Correct Score Prediction: 1:1 Draw

Our most logical expectation here is the 1:1 draw. Both sides are not high-scoring and their defenses are not the best. When we compare the Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United line ups, we think that the hosts have the better squad overall and have a slightly better chance.

Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United: Form, Recent Games, and News

Sligo Rovers Preview

Sligo Rovers have been one of the better teams in the league over the past few years. Of course, they failed to reach Top 3 last year and were never really close but we still find them as a potential contender this season. Their form seems incredible right now and they already got points from the main contenders.

As it stands, they are sixth in the league, three points away from the third place on the points table, one that earns them a place in the Europa Conference League qualifiers. They do have a match in hand over their rivals and need to give a good account of their abilities against Drogheda, who are one place beneath them.

All eyes will be on Max Mata, who has impressed in his second year at Showgrounds. Mata has already scored six goals in nine outings, one fewer than he managed in his 27 league outings during the 2022 campaign. It will be interesting how his midfield partnership with Kailin Barlow brews. The 19-year-old is performing beyond his years and will be a staple in the first team for years to come.

Drogheda Preview

Drogheda almost got relegated last season. Well, not almost but they finished right above the relegation zone and were among the weakest teams in the league. The new campaign needs to see at least a slight improvement so that they do not fight relegation until the end. They started with a single defeat in the first five rounds, so we can expect a far better season.

They earned the bragging rights in the reverse fixture and will hope that it is their third victory in six games. It will not be an easy task to manage as Sligo have the upper hand in their rivalry, who have won five and only lost twice in their 10 encounters to date.

To get a positive result in this meeting, their attacking unit will have to deliver. There is not a single reliable scoring outlet in their ranks with six different scorers contributing to their cause. While the attackers fail at doing their job, the pressure to find goals from other sources is hampering them on the pitch.
