Shamrock Rovers vs St Patrick’s: Preview and Predictions

Shamrock Rovers vs St Patrick’s Athletic
Republic of Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Tuesday, 22 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).

The closing match if 19th round in Irish Premier Division is going to be contested between Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick’s Athletic.

The hosts are not enjoying a good start of the campaign as they are already 10 points away from the top three, which is their ambition. They have celebrated just one victory in the last five matches and Stephen Bradley’s side tied two draws in a row. However, they haven’t been bad when playing at home as they allowed just one defeat.

The visitors are in a four-match winning streak which propelled them to the 4th place. They are just three points away from Waterford, who are sitting on the Europe League spot. Dean Clarke and the lads have been fairly productive this season, but their away performances are below their standards.

Shamrock Rovers v St Patrick’s Athletic: Head-to-head

In the last six matches when these two sides faced each other, the home crowd was happier since we haven’t seen an away win. Shamrock Rovers managed to book only one win in the last eight games, while one of the sides was able to keep the clean sheet last three times.

Shamrock Rovers v St Patrick’s Athletic: Prediction

The hosts need to break this record if they want to catch the train for the places in European cups, and as they are performing very well at home, they might be able to break a great winning record of the visitors.

As per their tradition, in this one the crowd shouldn’t expect fireworks, but a tight game and low number of goals. We believe this one is going to stay below 2.5 margin for the 5th time in a row.
