Waterford vs Bohemians Prediction & Match Preview

Waterford vs Bohemians
Ireland- Premier Division
Date: Friday, 28 June 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue:  Regional Sports Centre (Waterford).

The visitors will be coming into the clash against the home side Waterford FC, on the back of a 2-1 win in their previous fixture against second-placed Shamrock Rovers.

Daniel Mandroui missed the chance to fire his team into the lead after failing to convert a penalty in the 15th minute but found the mark almost ten minutes later when the referee signaled for another one. Their opponents leveled the scores six minutes after the restart and the game was back for the taking with under forty minutes left on the clock.

Mandroui was the man to settle the difference again after he found the back of the net in the 60th minute, ultimately handing them the victory at the last blast of the final whistle.

The home side’s last fixture in the league was against ninth-placed UC Dublin and the match finished in a 1-0 scoreline after Scott Swine scored the only goal of the game. Alan Reynolds’s men are currently eighth in the league and are thirteen points clear of the relegation with twenty-three points while their opponents, who are third with thirty-seven points, are trailing behind Shamrock Rovers by seven points.

Waterford vs Bohemians Prediction

The visitors are almost certain to make the trip back home with the win and the three points comfortably under their belt.

The away side are currently on a three-match winning streak and have scored nine goals in the process while conceding just four. Although their last trip on the road against Dundalk finished in a disappointing 2-1 loss, Keith Long’s side are almost certain to bounce back to winning ways when they travel to the Regional Sports Center on Friday.

The hosts have been inconsistent in their run of form at home and have just two wins in their last five matches on home soil. The squad have, however, been consistent in finding the back of the net in four out of those last five fixtures.

We can certainly expect both teams to score in the clash, with the win likely to swing in favour of the visitors at the end of the ninety minutes.
