Shamrock Rovers vs St. Patrick’s Athletic Prediction
Shamrock Rovers have a good chance of sealing the win in the game on Friday. However, the host has had four draws in their last five h2h clashes with the visitor since 2019.
The host has lost only one of their 10 home matches in the campaign until now. But they had only one win in the recent five attempts at this venue, which shows a shaky defense.
As such, the home team will only have a slight upper hand in the encounter.
