Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Shamrock Rovers win

Odds: 4/7 @ Pribet

Hoping to find a route to the top of the Premier Division table on Friday night, Shamrock Rovers will welcome Galway to the Tallaght Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, making real history last season as they got their hands on a fourth consecutive Premier Division crown, Shamrock find themselves tipped as a leading contender to defend their title. While the Irish heavyweights might have been last seen earlier in the week settling for a 0-0 stalemate away at Shelbourne, Stephen Bradley’s men have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous nine appearances – a run that stems back to February 23rd. Opening Friday’s showdown sat just three points adrift of climbing to the top of the table, the Rovers will be excited by their rampant record on home soil. Last seen at the Tallaght Stadium storming their way to a routine 3-0 victory against Sligo, Bradley’s men have remarkably not suffered a single domestic defeat in front of their own supporters over the past 11 months. Winning back-to-back matchups in Dublin by an aggregate score of 6-1, Shamrock are rightfully pencilled in as a standout contender here.

As for the visitors, although Galway might have only made their Premier Division return this season, John Caulfield’s men have gained a reputation for their rugged approach. Opening this weekend’s fixtures battling it out in the top-half of the table, the Tribesmen should be relishing a trip to the defending champions here. However, winning just one of their previous four top-flight appearances, the former Cork boss will have a growing headache over his side’s struggles in the final third. Last seen earlier in the week settling for a 0-0 stalemate away at Sligo, Galway have recorded just a sole Premier Division goal in over 360 minutes of action. Likewise, recording just a single strike on their travels over the past two months, Caulfield’s side should also be worried by a nightmare record away at Shamrock. In fact, Galway have failed to claim a single win from any of their 24 historic trips to the Tallaght Stadium.
