Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an enjoyable Premier Division battle on Friday night, Waterford will welcome Bohemians to town.

Starting with the hosts, while Waterford might have only made their Premier Division return this season, the Blues have enjoyed a real top-flight flurry. Remarkably opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just three points adrift of finding a route into the European places, Keith Long’s men will certainly be looking to make another statement of intent here. Making an immediate return to winning ways last week as they secured an action-packed 4-2 victory at home against Drogheda, the ex-Bohemians boss will be desperate to get one over on his former employers here. Opening May with a famous performance away at defending champions Shamrock Rovers as they secured a thumping 3-1 win, Waterford have now won four of their previous five Premier Division appearances. Enjoying what has been a stellar May purple patch, Friday’s hosts will also be excited by their recent success on home soil. Including a 4-1 romp against Dundalk earlier in the month, Long’s side have secured back-to-back victories in front of their own supporters by an aggregate score of 8-3.

As for the visitors, left disappointed last season as they had to settle for a bottom-half finish, Alan Reynolds’ men have once again struggled with their consistency this time around. Despite securing an eye-catching 3-0 romp away at Sligo Rovers earlier in the month, that is the only win that the Dublin-based outfit have recorded from any of their previous six Premier Division appearances. Last seen snatching a lively 2-2 stalemate at home against St. Patrick’s, the former Shelbourne coach should be bracing himself for another stern examination here. However, claiming a 1-0 victory when they travelled to Waterford last season, they will be excited by an impressive record away at Friday’s hosts. In fact, Bohemians have registered nine points from just their previous four trips to the Regional Sports Centre. It should be noted, with Bohemians seeing six of their last seven away fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Waterford vs Bohemians 2/5 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division matchup @ 1xBet
