Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Shamrock Rovers should be able to win this game without a problem and we definitely expect them to score at least two goals here. Curiously, Drogheda United somehow always score at least one goal against this opponent, no matter the fact that they are the signficantly weaker side of the two. So, like usual, we think that they may score here after they scored in both games this season already.
Match Result Prediction: Shamrock Rovers to Win
Shamrock Rovers should find a way to win this game in the end although this is probably one of their toughest rivals. Especially after they lost to Dundalk in the previous round, it will be a huge problem if they make another mistake within a week. They are only 4 points clear at the top and a defeat here could lead to St Patricks getting much closer.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Shamrock Rovers
As mentioned above, Drogheda United somehow always find a way to score a goal against Shamrock. Therefore, based on the games between the two teams, we expect the 2-1 scoreline as it has been the most common result between them apart from the 1-1 draw. When we compare the Drogheda United vs Shamrock Rovers line ups, the visitors obviously have a huge advantage.
