  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
  • KO: 20:30
  • Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin)

Shamrock Rovers plays host to Hibernians in a UEFA Champions League first-leg tie at the Tallaght Stadium in Dublin.

The Irish champions enter this fixture as heavy favourites, available at just 1.28 odds-on to claim a first-leg advantage against the Maltese champions ahead of next week´s return leg in Ta'Qali.

Certainly, Shamrock should be confident of claiming a solid first-leg advantage with the visitors playing their first competitive fixture since the start of May. In contrast, Shamrock have been active in their domestic league and they come into this fixture having won each of their last 3matches.

Historically, Hibernians,  have struggled to make an impact at this level, losing each of their last 4 matches in this competition, conceding 11 while scoring none.

While Shamrock are hardly experienced players in the CL, they did record a 2:1 second-leg win when they faced Slovan Bratislava at this venue last year, eventually bowing out 3:2 to the Slovak champions and they should have enough to claim an important first-leg advantage.

Ultimately, we expect the Irish to have too much quality with Hibernians certainly short of competitive action in recent weeks and we´re backing Shamrock to claim a win against the visiting Peacocks with a clean sheet to boot.

Jack Byrne remains unavailable with a calf strain while Neil Farrugia is also expected to miss.

However, Danny Mandroiu should be fit enough to make his return to the squad while Richie Towell is pushing for a return to the starting line-up having made his comeback from injury as a second-half subsititute in the weekend win against Finn Harps.
