Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 14th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Richmond Park (Dublin).

St. Patrick is high on confidence after their back-to-back comebacks in the last two games. While both may have not resulted in wins, the manner in which they clawed back into the tie, to share the spoils against overwhelming odds was nothing short of inspirational.

They did it at home against Cork city, where the equalizer came in the 90+5th minute, while against Sligo, on the road, they canceled out the one-goal lead of the hosts eight minutes from full time.

Finn Harps have been the worst team in the league for quite some time now and are a frontrunner to get relegated. On top of that, they have not yet won a single tie on the road, and have conceded the most away goals so far, at a rate of 2.5 per fixture.

St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Finn Harps Prediction

Athletic has the confidence of delivering two straight come-backs to avoid losses from unlikely situations, and they are in front of their home crowd. They were also unbeaten in eight of their last eleven games, and at home, lost just four times in the last 15 attempts.

On the other hand, the Harps are the worst of the lot and is placed dead-last in the table. They are on a five-match losing streak and conceded 19 goals from their last six fixtures. Away from home, the team is on a winless run of 11 games, and let in three or more goals in six of their last nine tries.

They have also conceded the most goals in the league, at 47, while the no other side has conceded even 35. And finally, h2h stats clearly put them at a disadvantage, as Athletic recorded 15 of the last 18 such wins, and eight of the last ten at this venue.

By all means, expect the hosts to come out on top with at least two goals.
