The hosts will be desperate for a three-pointer here if they era to keep the hopes of catching up with Sligo Rovers who are five points adrift in the safe zone. Limerick currently sit second from bottom, meaning they would play relegation play-offs if the season is to end now.

Nevertheless, the Super Blues will have a very challenging task to pick up the result here given they’ll be up against the third-placed side on the evening.

The visitors played the second tier football last year, but the head coach Alan Reynolds has done an amazing job so far in the season making them genuine candidates for Europa League football next year.

Waterford are four points clear off Shamrock Rovers in fourth at the moment and they have the pole position in the battle for the top-three finish.

Limerick vs Waterford: Head-to-head

The previous head to head encounter between these two sides offered a true goal fest, ending in a 3-0 win for Limerick away at Waterford Regional Sports Centre.

The Super Blues thus got the revenge for the 0-2 loss they suffered to Waterford back at the start of the season in late-March.

Six of last seven head to head outings saw four or more goals scored.

Limerick vs Waterford: Prediction

Both teams head into this low on confidence after losing previous round ties to direct rivals. The hosts fell 2-1 away at St. Patrick’s Athl., while Waterford just couldn’t find the back of the net in a narrow 0-1 home defeat to Shamrock Rovers.

The clash with Limerick will be a perfect opportunity for the Blues to bounce back from the mentioned defeat given they are up against an outfit which lost four of last five league fixtures. The quality is on Waterford’s side and we’ll go for the away win at the 1.57 odds here.

Obviously, as four or more goals were seen in six of last seven h2H games, we just have to take the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.90.
