Sligo Rovers vs Derry City Betting Tips

Two teams who were at the opposite ends of results in the Premier Division 2 weeks ago clash for some Irish Cup action. Sligo Rovers had a wonderful outing at Dundalk as they earned their three points courtesy to a brace of goals and a clean sheet to boast about. On the other hand, the Rovers’ next Cup opponents Derry City had a difficult away trip to Shamrock Rovers as they went down 2-0 earlier this month. It was followed by a 1-1 draw away from home at Cork City which made it a 5th failure to win a game in 7 attempts.

Though both the sides have usually played out a very low-key battle irrespective of the venue or the competition involved, Derry City have been extremely poor in their efforts against this very opposition. Despite the shortage of goals in this very tie, Derry have not kept a clean sheet in the last 3 games on the run now against Sligo Rovers – which is way below expectations.

As previously mentioned, this game has usually seen less than a couple of goals and that is not the end of it. Even the two teams, Sligo Rovers and Derry City have seen less than 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 games and 5 of their last 6 fixtures respectively. This is a clear cut fixture which will be won or lost by a very small margin. So, ‘Under 2.5 goals’ is our best betting pick for this Wednesday’s battle.

Moreover, Sligo Rovers are the obvious better side amongst the two clubs and playing at home in a knockout cup fixture scenario, nothing less than a win is being expected from the home side. So, a ‘Sligo Rovers Win’ is another bet to keep an eye on.

Sligo Rovers vs Derry City Correct Score Predictions

The Rovers should dominate this game and get a comfortable win, but the question remains by what margin. Well, the teams are not the most explosive sides in Ireland and goals are not a frequently occurring event in their games. So, it could be anything between a 1-0 or 2-0 win for Sligo Rovers. Most probably, it should be a 1-0 low-key win as the youth players are expected to make appearances.

  • Single Bet: Under 2.5 goals
  • ACCA: Under 2.5 goals + Sligo Rovers Win
