On October 2, we will have an interesting confrontation between Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers in the Irish regular season, and we have prepared a forecast for this match. How will the meeting end? – read below.
The Dublin-based club is the leader of the Irish Championship, and managed to score 35 points in 13 rounds without losing once. Such a result deserves praise, but the most important thing is that the team is already 8 points ahead of the closest rival Bohemians.
Shamrock Rovers does not spare anyone and in the last meeting this was only confirmed once again. The team left no chances for Dundalk (4: 0), and 24-year-old midfielder Jack Byrne showed himself best of all, as he scored a brace.
In a word, Stephen Bradley’s wards are again the main contender for the championship, especially since they failed to break into the group stage of European competitions.
The team from the city of the same name performs somewhat weaker, but claims a place in the top three of the Irish Championship. Liam Buckley’s boys are fourth in the standings, just one point behind Waterford United.
In the previous match, the team minimally dealt with Derry City (1: 0). The match turned out to be rather poor in scoring chances, but in the 87th minute Ryan de Vres managed to upset the guests.
Sligo Rovers understands perfectly well who they are going to visit and what can be expected from the league leader, so most likely they will have to act on the defensive and then hope for counterattacks.
In the last five personal matches, the total of 3 goals was broken once.
Since the start of the Irish Championship, Shamrock Rovers have not lost a single match.
Sligo Rovers have won just one away win this season.

There is no doubt that Shamrock Rovers will dominate the pitch and will once again play number one, so the opponent will have to choose defensive tactics and just wait for their chance.
Sligo Rovers’s away results this season are not encouraging at all, but the mood for the match against the Irish leader will be right. In our opinion, the guests will dry up the game, and the bet on total under 3 goals will pass.
