St Patricks vs Sligo Rovers: Top free betting tips
To continue their progress in the Irish Premier Division, St Patrick’s Athletic returns to Richmond Park to play the next game against Sligo Rovers on Monday, 23 October. Rovers enter this game after successive defeats against Dundalk and Bohemians in the Premier Division.
Match result prediction: St Patricks to win
St Patrick’s Athletic are in great shape with four victories in their last five matches while losing the remaining one against Drogheda. However, Sligo Rovers have tasted three defeats in the same number of games. Rovers have also been dismal away from the Showgrounds by conceding four defeats in the previous five road fixtures. Both teams have won twice in their last four H2Hs against each other. But given the current state of affairs, we predict Red Army to have the upper hand in this encounter.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
St Patrick’s Athletic have claimed three consecutive clean sheets before this game, playing away from Richmond Park. However, Red Army have conceded goals in four of their previous five games in front of their home fans. Offensively, the Athletic netted the ball in four games during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Sligo Rovers have also scored in three of their last five fixtures on the road, keeping zero clean sheets. Therefore, we predict this game to feature a BTTS outcome, a change to the teams’ previous H2Hs trend.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to St Patrick's
St Patrick’s Athletic have found the back of the net more than once in three of their last five matches. On the other hand, Sligo Rovers have netted the ball only once in two of their last three league outings, remaining goalless in the other one. On the defensive end, the Bit O’ Red have allowed multiple goals at the back in three of their last five games in Irish Premier Division. Based on these numbers, we predict a 2-1 victory for St Patrick in this fixture.
