In our opinion, the bet should be made in favor of the host team, which has gained excellent shape and can try to close the gap with competitors. The club plays very successfully at home, especially the statistics of head-to-head confrontations. The guests do not stand out in any way and regularly fight for survival. In the first round, the outsider won an unexpected victory 1: 0. We think the favorite wants to take revenge for a misfire.
Our prediction is that Sligo Rovers will win 1.97 at BC Winline.
