Drogheda United vs Shelbourne: Top Free Betting Tips

After an away defeat, Drogheda United return to their home to face Shelbourne in the next fixture of the Premier Division. The Real Reds come into this game after consecutive wins.

Shelbourne to Win

Drogheda United have lacked consistency in the recent outings and won only once in the previous five attempts, along with two defeats and two draws. However, Shelbourne has managed to win all of the last three games in a row. The Real Reds also hold a brilliant record against the Drogs and won all of the previous four H2Hs. So the upcoming challenge wouldn’t be an easy task for Drogheda and we predict a win for the Reds in this game.

Over 2.5 Goals

Shelbourne has added a total of eight goals in the last three games and scored at least twice in all of them. The Drogs’ frontline lagged in the recent outings but they also collected seven goals in the previous five meetings at home. Moreover, Drogheda United have also leaked goals in all of the recent five outings. Hence, we can expect this game to end with over 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Despite the winless sequence, Drogheda United have scored in three of the last four home games. The Drogs also scored in two of the last four H2Hs against Shelbourne. On the other side, the Real Reds have been on the scoring side in all of the previous four H2Hs. The Shels also rattled the net in all of the three away outings. So we see this game ending with a BTTS outcome.
