St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Sligo Rovers
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 15 June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Richmond Park, Dublin.
The Pats host Sligo Rovers in a highly important clash between bottom half sides on Friday evening at Richmond Park. The hosts are desperate to return on the winning was after losing four on the trot in the Premier Division, but they could struggle to break the deadlock on the day given the visitors have been relatively tough to break down of late.
Sligo escaped the danger zone with a streak of three straight outings without a defeat. They did not concede a single goal in the process. However, the thread came to an end six days ago when they could not hold to against the table-toppers and defending champions Cork City falling 0-2 at The Showgrounds.
Both teams have been struggling for goals badly for goals in recent weeks and we can hardly imagine a high-scoring thriller when they take on each other on Friday evening. Knowing that all of last nine H2H outings ended with less than three goals scored, we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as a banker bet at the 1.75 odds.
Braver tipsters can even go on and back less than two goals in the game at the sky-high 3-25 odds. SAs for the outcome, the value is definitely with the Bit o’ Red who are 2.10 to leave Richmond Park undefeated. We’ll remind you that the hosts come into the match with four losses in a row and that the visitors have kept their net untouched in three of last four Premier Division outings.
