Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Shamrock Rovers are on the way to a third consecutive title and they need all but a few more wins until the end. Here are our predictions.

Under 2.5 Goals

Shamrock Rovers may be the best team in the league but they have not been in the best form lately and barely scored two goals in the last three games. Sligo Rovers, in turn, have also not been perfect lately and they had a bunch of games in which they even failed to score a goal. They do well against bottom teams but their performances against the top tier teams have been disappointing. Six out of the last eight games between these two teams ended with less than 2.5 goals.

Shamrock Rovers To Score First

Shamrock Rovers are obviously the better team on both ends – in attack and in defense. They have the best attack and a solid record against Sligo Rovers from recent years. Sligo Rovers have conceded at least one goal in all five most recent games against Shamrock Rovers. At the same time, Shamrock were the first team to score in four out of these five games. If we see an early goal, we think that it will be from Shamrock.

2nd Half Goals – Under 1.5

We come back to the facts we know about the two teams and goals. Both sides mostly have games with less than 2.5 goals. We do not expect to see more than two in this match and even if there are two, we expect one per half max. Sligo Rovers had less than 2.5 goals in 5 out of 7 most recent games while Shamrock Rovers had less than 2.5 goals in 7 out of 9 most recent games. This is all we need to expect an under here.

Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers: Match Preview

Sligo Rovers Preview

Sligo Rovers had their best season in many years in the previous campaign and managed to finish in 3rd place behind Shamrock Rovers and St. Patrick's. The team had not finished this high in the league since 2013. In the new season, they have not been as good and will not even reach Top 4, let alone Top 3. Their attack has been weaker and their defense has been conceding a lot more goals than usual.

Shamrock Rovers Preview

Shamrock Rovers are most likely going to win a third title in a row after another impressive season. Of course, they have not been as dominant as the previous campaign which is good for the league because there is more competition. Still, only Derry City are five points away from them and it is unlikely that they will reach them within six rounds.
