Shelbourne vs Sligo Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips

Shelbourne are in the search of a winning result when they go up against Sligo Rovers in the upcoming engagement of the Premier Division on Friday, 9 September. The Bit O’Red come into this game on the back of consecutive home victories.

Shelbourne to Win

Shelbourne has been inconsistent in recent games and recorded only one win in the previous five outings. But they have earned slightly better at home games by winning four of the last seven attempts, losing only one. On the other hand, Sligo Rovers have got successive wins recently but an away challenge seems a difficult one for them. The Bit O’Red are winless in the previous seven away games and lost the last two in a row. The Reds have won the previous two H2Hs at home against Sligo Rovers and we see the same in this duel as well.

Over 2.5 Goals

The last two H2Hs between these sides have followed a high-scoring pattern and we predict an identical outcome for this duel as well. Sligo Rovers have scored two goals per game in the last three attempts consecutively. But they also have leaked goals in the majority of the away outings. Shelbourne has found the back of the net six times in the last five home outings.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Sligo Rovers have hit the target in four of the last five away meetings and they secured the same record in the last five visits to Shelbourne. But after leaking nine goals in the last three away outings, the Bit O’Red doesn’t seem a difficult challenge for the rivals defensively. The Real Reds have also rattled the net in four of the last six home games and in four of the previous five hosting H2Hs. So we believe to see this game featuring both teams scoring at the same time.
