Bohemians vs Shamrock Rovers: Preview and Predictions

Bohemians vs Shamrock Rovers Irish Premier Division 25th May 2018

Bohemians vs Shamrock Rovers
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 25 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Dalymount Park, Dublin.

Shamrock Rovers announced better days when they destroyed the reigning champions Cork City 3-0 on the home patch back in late-April. Nevertheless, Stephen Bradley’s troops did not capitalize on such result taking no more than two points from three following ties. It’s a bitterly disappointing return for the Europa League chasers if we know that the opposition included the likes of St. Patrick’s Athl., Waterford and Sligo Rovers.

Can the Hoops rebound from mentioned failures and grab the spoils on Friday when they travel to the capital to take on the table neighbours Bohemians. The hosts have been playing hot and cold ever since the start of the season and they just look to lack consistency to match the last term’s success when they came fifth at the end of the Premier Division campaign.

Bohemians vs Shamrock Rovers: Head-to-head

Goals should be guaranteed if we are to follow the most recent H2H trend.

Five of last six head to head encounters saw both teams on the scoreline and at least three goals scored.

Overall, it’s Shamrock who lead the head to head tie by five wins coming into their 84th head to head encounter with Bohemians.

Bohs were, however, much more successful in the most recent set of meetings, winning each of last three and netting seven goals in the process.

Bohemians vs Shamrock Rovers: Prediction

Keith Long might finally fancy his side’s chances of ending the horrendous streak of four straight games without scoring at Dalymount Park.

Bohs were pretty impressive in the final third in latest head to head meetings with Shamrock who are everything but consistent at the start of the new season which is why we fancy the hosts not to lose at the 1.57 here.

Furthermore, we have to mention that Bohemians played the likes of Cork City, Waterford and Dundalk (top three sides this season) during the negative streak at home.

Shamrock have been dreadful travellers for a while now as they failed to score in four straight league games on the road. This, combined with Bohemians’ lack of attacking edge in latest home ties, makes the Under 2.5 goals FT a perfect betting option, set at the odds of 1.60.
