Limerick vs Shamrock Rovers: Preview and Predictions

Limerick vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 15 June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Markets Field (Limerick).

Limerick are going to take on Shamrock Rovers in the 23rd round of Irish Premier Division on Friday evening. Home side is struggling to keep their heads above the water as they are two points behind the nearest safe spot. They are in a streak of four games without tasting a win and Tommy Barrett’s side have troubles in converting their chances into goals. They also need to improve their defending if they want to remain in the top flight.

Shamrock Rovers are in a variable form but their latest 5-0 victory over Bray Wanderers may indicate that they might start a winning streak. They want to be competitive for the place in Europa League next season and the visitors are currently nine points behind the 3rd spot. Graham Burke and the lads haven’t performed very well at away grounds this season as they managed to get back home with a win just once this season.

Limerick vs Shamrock Rovers: Head-to-head

The visitors are much more successful in their head to head clashes as they have been undefeated against Limerick since 2014. During that period, they have booked six victories over their rivals. Their head to head clashes haven’t been much efficient.

Limerick vs Shamrock Rovers: Predictions

Shamrock Rovers should use their momentum and celebrate an important away win in this one. They are in better form and they know how it tastes winning against this opposition.

The visitors have been involved in high scoring matches recently and although the crowd wasn’t able to see many goals in their recent head to head clashes, in this one we might be able to see more than two.
