Sligo Rovers came to this season after one of their worst in a long time. They finished 8th with only 37 points - six away from the relegation playout. This season, the situation is pretty strange since a couple of good results could push them into the battle for Europe, and a couple of bad ones would mean a fight against relegation. Currently, they sit in 7th place with 25 points from 21 games. However, the last two losses against Waterford and Dundalk are a big reason for concern.

Shamrock Rovers are the biggest club in the Republic of Ireland. They have really dominated in the last few years, winning the last four league titles. However, this season isn't going according to plan, as they are in third place with 31 points, already 12 points behind the first-placed Shelbourne, although with a game played less. Also, since 4th-placed Watefrod are on a level with Shamrock in points, it seems Shamrock are expecting a battle for Europe this year.

Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers pick: Both teams to score

Sligo Rovers lost back-to-back games against Dundalk and Waterford while conceding five goals. So, expecting them to keep a clean sheet against one of the best teams in the league is unreal. On the other hand, we believe they are capable of scoring at home after scoring at least one goal in four of the last five matches.

Lately, Shamrock Rovers have been really inconsistent, and even though they are a better team overall, we want to avoid betting on them to win the upcoming game. Still, they are scoring pretty regularly and have done so in eight out of the last ten matches. Additionally, Shamrock Rovers (along with Drogheda United) are the best teams in the league for this type of bet, as both teams scored in 57% of their games (12 of 21).

Considering all the above, both teams to score bet should be the safest option for this Premier Division match.

Sligo Rovers team news

The team should have no new injuries or suspensions, but the players who missed the previous games with injuries should remain sidelined: Nando Pijnaker, Simon Power, John Mahon, and Conor Reynolds. 

In recent days, Shamrock's striker Johnny Kenny has made negative comments about Sligo, claiming that it is a lot easier for them to play for them since they have no title (or European) aspirations. Coach John Russell did not take those comments lightly, saying he was being disrespectful to the club where he went through the academy and the senior team.

Shamrock Rovers team news

The team's starting central defender, Josh Honohan, suffered an injury in the previous game vs St. Patrick's and had to leave the field after 42 minutes. With him out, Cory O'Sullivan will most likely get the opportunity to start. 

Besides Honohan, the players who missed the previous games with injuries should remain sidelined: Trevor Clarke, Daniel Cleary, Sean Kavanagh, Rory Gaffney, Gary O'Neil, and Sean Hoare.
