Shamrock Rovers vs Sligo Rovers
Ireland- Premier Division
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).
Shamrock Rovers have been hit by a dip in form at home and are without a win in their last two fixtures. Their most recent clash on home soil finished in a narrow 1-0 loss to league leaders Dundalk with Sean Gannon scoring the only goal of the game.
The hosts enjoyed more time on the ball and made fourteen attempts at goal, which was six more than what the opponents could accomplished. Despite the better stats, the squad failed to get more than one shot on target and finally paid the price for it, when their counterparts made the most of the few chances that came their way.
The visitors are currently on a two match losing streak, with their latest loss coming at the hands of Finn Harps by a 2-0 scoreline. The team were far from impressive in their last match, and could not get a single shot on target in the entire ninety minutes.
The hosts are currently second in the league with forty seven points and are trailing behind table toppers Dundlak by eight points. Their foes, on the other hand, are on sixth with twenty nine points.

Shamrock Rovers vs Sligo Rovers Prediction
The home side are the clear favourites to take the win when the squads clash with each other at the Tallaght Stadium this week.
The visitors have failed to get on the score sheet in their last two matches on the road, and have conceded a total of six goals in the process.
The hosts however have succumbed to just one defeat in their last four fixtures, and have managed to score a total of five goals to their name while conceding just three.
Although they have been slightly off form in their last two matches, the current run of form of the visitors just does not look convincing enough to pull off an upset.
We can certainly bet on the home team to take the win and quite possibly a clean sheet as well at the end of the ninety minutes.
