Bohemians vs Shelbourne
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 17 June 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Dalymount Park.
Round 20 of Premier Division is set for this Friday as Bohemians play host to Shelbourne where both these sides are separated by just a point and lie one below the other. These two teams will be seen locking horns at Dalymount Park.
Bohemians are at the 7th spot on the standing with 23 points from 18 games. They won and lost 5 times each in the league while drew on 8 other occasions. The visitors have seen netting frequently but they tend to concede more of the same which hints that some defensive adjustments is needed.
The hosts head into this game coming off the back of a 1-1 Premier Division drawn match over Drogheda United. They have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 9 goals in the process.
On the other hand, Shelbourne resides at the 6th position on the table with 24 points. Of the 18 matches played, they won 7 times while drew thrice and lost on 8 other occasions. They really need to look onto their offensive side as they seems to be lacking finishing quality recently.
After winning 4 games in a row, Shelbourne recently lost previously by 0-2 against Shamrock Rovers. During their latest 6 matches, Damien Duff’s men have slotted home 7 times thus yielding them the goals per game average of 1.17.
