  • Date: 15/09/2022
  • Competition: Europa Conference League
  • KO: 18:45 CET
  • Venue: GHELAMCO-arena (Gent)

Following a pair of goal-less draws on match-day one, Gent and Shamrock Rovers meet at the GHELAMCO-arena in Europa Conference League Group F.

Shamrock, making their return to the group stages of European competition for the first time since 2011, picked up a credible draw in their opening fixture against Swedes Djurgården. That point represented Shamrock´s first ever at this level of European football, having failed to pick up a single point in 20111.

Gent also began their campaign with a goalless draw against Norwegians Molde and, now back in front of their own support, will be expected to pick up a first victory of the section. 

Gent vs Shamrock Rovers Betting Tips: AH1 (-1.5)

While Shamrock sits top of the Irish league and have done well to reach this stage of the ECL, we expect Gent to prove too strong an opponent, with the Irish side usually doing their best work on home soil.

Indeed, while Shamrock were able to cause upset home victories over the likes of Ferncavaros and Ludogorets in earlier qualifying rounds in the UCL and UEL on the road, Shamrock have struggled, losing 4:0 in Hungary and 3:0 in Bulgaria, and a similar outcome is expected for this Conference League clash.

Gent, while hardly in great form, have much the greater pedigree in European competition, including a run to the last 16 of this event last season, and while they are too short to back for the outright win, we do expect them to win with something to spare, suggesting the -1.5 AH selection is the best bet for the fixture.

Currently 5th in the Belgian FD1, De Buffalo's claimed a 2:0 win against Zulte at the weekend, and we expect them to follow up with a similarly comfortable victory here.
