St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Galway United FC
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 30th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Richmond Park.
St. Patrick’s Athl. will host Galway United looking to snatch the first victory after six matches and leave their rivals at the very foot of the Premier Division standings.
St. Patrick’s Athletic
Liam Buckley is still trying to find the best formula in the defense since his team has been very easy to break down over the last couple of weeks.
The main reason for the poor run lies in the fact that the Saints allowed at least two goals in four of their last five matches.
The situation, however, got even worse in last two weeks when the Pats conceded five goals in fixtures with Bohemians and Limerick.
Galway are realistically the weakest team in this term of Premier Division and Shane Keegan will have a mountain to climb in order to save his side from the relegation at the end of the season.
The visitors won only a single point in last six league outings and the potentially defeat to fellow strugglers could potentially end Keegan’s reign on the bench.
St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Galway United: Head to head
The head to head stats go entirely on St. Patrick’s Athl. favour since they clinched six wins in eight H2H meetings with Galway United.
The match from the first part of the season has, however, seen a 1-1 draw in mid-April at Eamonn Deacy Park.
St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Galway United: Prediction
This will be a huge opportunity for the hosts to boost up their confidence at the back against one of the weakest attacking sides in the competition.
The stakes are high and none of the two sides can actually afford a defeat. This is why we expect to see a huge battle at the centre of the court and generally a low-scoring contest between the fellow strugglers.
