Match: Shamrock Rovers vs St Patrick’s Athletic
Competition: Republic of Ireland – Premier Division
Time / Date: 22:00h / 22 May 2018
Venue: Tallaght Stadium
Shamrock and St Patrick’s will close the 19th round at the Ireland Premier Division.
Hoops do not enjoy the best start of the season, now they are with 10 points away from the top three in the standings. They managed to win only one match in the last five games, and in the last two, they have two draws. Whatever the team of Stephen Bradley as a host is performing well with only one loss so far.
The guests are in a series of four games with wins and are in 4th place with only 3 points behind Waterford, which occupies the place that gives the chance to compete in the Europa League.
St Patrick’s have won three, drawn two, and lost just one of their last six meetings with Shamrock Rovers. The visitors have avoided defeat at Tallaght Stadium in six of their last seven visits there.
Away from home St Patrick’s have only won three times this season, but after their recent showings, they will be brimming with confidence. Shamrock Rovers, meanwhile, have won just one of their last five at home.
Despite all this, the bookies have Rovers as firm favourites on Tuesday. All things considered, including the fact that St Patrick’s have only lost one of their last seven trips to the Tallaght Stadium, we think this is a major mistake. Backing St Patricks Win or Draw Double Chance looks a great value offering.
