Finn Harps vs Galway United
Ireland Premier Division
Date: August, 3rd August 2017
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Finn Park (Ballybofey).
The attacking approach from Finn Harps are slowly paying dividends as they moved four points clear of the relegation. Last week, they won a 3-2 thriller away at Bray Wanderers, to make it three wins in four games.
Things haven’t been going well for the Finns for the majority of the season. They need to keep the momentum going to achieve a respectable finish with less than 10 matches to be played in the 2017 season.
At the same time, Galway are inside the relegation zone with Drogheda the only team below them in the table. However, their recent form is positive as they picked up 2 wins and a draw before falling to narrow 2-1 defeat to the league leaders Cork City. The team still need 4 points to move out to safety and they are likely to spend a few more weeks in the relegation waters.
The away form of Galway United is nothing to write about. Their last win on the road came at Bray on 14th May 2016. They have went on a 22 match win-less run on the road since then, 12 alone in the current campaign.
Finn Harps vs Galway United: Head-to-head
The teams met twice this season and Galway picked a 2-1 win in the most recent duel in front of their home fans, before settling for a 1-1 draw in the away trip to Harps on March.
Meantime, Finn Harps remain unbeaten in four home matches against Galway, but three of those are draws.
Finn Harps vs Galway United: Predictions
Finn Harps’ recent run has done wonders to their confidence and will be quite confident of outscoring most of the opponents in the League of Ireland. Meantime, Galway haven’t won a game on the road since May 2016. That is 22 matches over the last 15 months. We can be positive on only one outcome here, and that is certainly a win for the Finn Harps.
