Drogheda United vs Shamrock Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips

One of the interesting games of the second round of the FAI Cup will be played between the Premier Division sides, Drogheda United and Shamrock Rovers on Sunday, 28 August. Both teams have played consecutive unbeaten games previously.

Drogheda United to Win

Drogheda United earned a mix of results recently with two wins, two draws and one defeat in the last five games. However, the teams are unbeaten in the previous four home attempts and won two of them. On the other hand, Shamrock Rovers have won three of the last five outings but they are winless in the last two away duels. The Hoops are also winless in the previous two H2Hs against the Drogs and lost one of them. So following the home advantage, Drogheda United will be our favourite to add three points at the end.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Super Drogs have managed an average of more than two goals in the last four home attempts but failed to keep a clean sheet in that course. On the other hand, Shamrock Rovers also scored three goals in the last attempt in Premier Division and scored four in the first round of the FAI Cup. Given this, we set our next prediction for a high-scoring total, opposite to the recent H2Hs trend. 

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Drogheda United are expected to have several chances as they rattled the net in all of the previous four home games. The attacking line of the Hoops lagged in the recent consecutive away games but they have been on the scoring side in four of the last five visiting H2Hs. The Drogs also kept zero clean sheets in the recent five hosting attempts. Two of the last three H2Hs ended with BTTS outcomes and we predict the identical pattern for this game.
