Gent vs Shamrock Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips
Gent are the big team in this group but they did not have the start they expected. Here are our predictions for this game.
Both Teams To Score – No
Curiously, none of the four teams in this group scored a single goal in the first round of the tournament and we expect this to change in round 2, for sure. However, we only expect goals from one side here – Gent, because Shamrock Rovers are a much smaller team and their performances to date have not been impressive at all. Shamrock Rovers lost to Ferencvaros in the Europa League qualifiers and the away loss was 4:0. They failed to score against Djurgarden at home and now will face Gent, who are the biggest club to date.
Under 2.5 Goals
We do not expect Shamrock Rovers to score and we do not expect to see more than two goals from Gent either. The home team is much bigger and stronger but their current form is definitely not good and we expect a minimal win if we even see a win in this group. They also failed against a smaller team in the EL qualifiers and need to improve. Their performance against Molde was disappointing too in round one and they did not create many chances overall.
Total Corners – Over 9
We have two teams that generally take a lot of corners in their matches and we expect to see a good number, especially from the home team. Overall, Shamrock Rovers took five corners in their first game here and we expect 3-4 at least from them. Gent took just 3 on the road but based on their performances in the Belgian elite, we expect more from them. They are the team that takes the 2nd most out of the entire domestic league at 5.6 corners per game and mostly in home games.
Gent vs Shamrock Rovers: Form, Recent Games, and News
Gent have always been one of the top teams in Belgium but the previous season was not very successful – they ended in 5th place. The team has one of the best defenses overall but their attack is not too effective. This season has not been great for them – they lost against a much weaker team in the EL and then their domestic performances have also been problematic. They should still be able to win this group as they are improving but it will be more difficult than expected.
Shamrock Rovers Preview
Shamrock are the current champions in Ireland and they have been dominating that league for years. In Europe, however, the team has been quite unsuccessful and they failed to qualify for the Champions League and then in the Europa League, both times against weaker opponents. Out of the four teams in this group, Shamrock are seemingly the smallest side, so it will be difficult for them to continue forward.
