Finn Harps vs Sligo Rovers
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 28 June 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Finn Park (Ballybofey).
The Harps are easily the worst team in the competition and rightfully adorn the dead-last position in the table. They have been able to post just two wins from their 22 fixtures so far and conceded the most goals yet. In fact, they have let in 48 goals, whereas the next worst is just 34.
With just ten points on the board, the squad is the odds-on favorite to face relegation at the end of the season.
Opponents Rovers had a tough outing the last day, against Cork City. They got a shock right away with an early goal but rallied to hit back the equalizer. After that though, the match went forth without goals, and their home advantage could milk them just a single point.
The team considers this tie as an opportunity to post an easy win and improve their dwindling goal difference as well, taking into account the stature of their counterparts.

Finn Harps vs Sligo Rovers Prediction
As mentioned, the Harps are the worst team in the competition by a distance, and they are a frontrunner to face elimination. The team is the worst in almost any of the major stats, be it goals conceded, number of wins, number of losses, etc.
Currently, they are going through a six-game losing streak and let in three or more goals in four of their last six fixtures. At home, they lost eight of the last eleven attempts and had their defense breached thrice or more in the last two appearances.
Importantly, 11 of the last 14 h2h wins went to Sligo, and the squad won three of the last four such clashes at this venue. Going on, they scored two or more goals in three of the last five tries, and in a span of 20 years, they failed to score just once at this stadium.
The visitors are overwhelming favorites to take the three points on offer this Friday.
