Limerick vs St Patricks Athletic
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 24th June 2017
Kick off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Markets Field.
Limerick will have a nice chance to bounce back from the last weekend’s loss to Cork City in the 109th round of the competition when they host the rock-bottomed St. Patrick’s Athl. at their Markets Field.
The league’s newcomers have been lethal in the final third over the last couple of weeks.
It has helped Super Blues to keep touch with the top half teams in spite of having super tough schedule over the last couple of weeks.
The Brazilian midfielder Rodrigo Tosi has been particularly inspired netting the total of nine goals so far in the season. Tosi was on target in last two matches and he will be our outside bet for the anytime goalscorer at the odds of 2/1.
St. Patrick’s Athl.
The Pats are sinking deeper and deeper. The home loss to Bohemians (1-3) dropped the team to the very foot of Premier Division standings.
Liam Buckley’s men have been quite vulnerable at the back, especially on the road, which will be the music to the ears of Tosi & company.
Limerick vs St Patricks Athletic: Head to head
The Saints lead the head to head tie by three wins, but Limerick came out victorious from their meeting in the first part of the season.
Tony Whitehead and John O’Flynn were on target in a comfortable 0-2 win for the Pats in early April at Richmond Park.
Limerick vs St Patricks Athletic: Prediction
Everything points out to a pleasant evening for the home team fans at Markets Field.
We expect to see one-way street from the very first whistle and we’ll take Limerick’s win with higher stakes.
