St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Finn Harps Prediction & Match Preview

St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Finn Harps
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 7 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Richmond Park.

Ollie Horgan’s men have been one of the worst teams in the whole competition, and they have been completely outplayed in defense as well as offense in this early phase of the season. In fact, if not for the presence of Cork City in the roster, they would have been classified as the absolute worst of the lot.

Even last season, they were placed second to last in the table, and barely managed to stay in the competition after going through the relegation playoffs.

The Saints, who have been desperate to post some points on the table, will easily take advantage of this match-up. They do have a great h2h record against this rival after all.
