Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 1/1 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an enjoyable showdown from the Regional Sports Centre on Thursday night, Waterford will welcome Shelbourne to town.

Starting with the hosts, while Waterford might have opened up June with a nightmare performance as they fell to a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Derry, Keith Long’s men came roaring back last weekend. Storming their way to a thumping 4-1 victory against Sligo Rovers, the Blues have won three of their previous four Premier Division appearances. Signing off May with a 2-1 win against Bohemians, the former Athlone boss has also seen his squad muster 18 points from just their last eight top-flight outings. Making a major statement last month as they secured a thumping 4-1 romp against former champions Dundalk, Waterford will also be excited by their remarkable success on home soil. Along with an action-packed 4-2 victory against Drogheda on May 23rd, it should be noted that Thursday’s hosts have won all of their previous four consecutive Premier Division battles at the Regional Sports Centre by an aggregate score of 14-5.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a remarkable Premier Division romp this season, Shelbourne find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Leading the chance at the top of the table and holding a two point buffer over the chasing pack, Damien Duff’s men have continued to receive a string of plaudits from across Ireland’s elite. Last seen putting in another rugged performance as they clinched a 1-0 victory at home against Dundalk, the Reds have won four of their previous five Premier Division appearances. With their purple patch underlined by a 2-0 win away at defending champions Shamrock on May 24th, Shelbourne have also suffered just a single defeat from any of their last 10 consecutive Premier Division appearances. With that run stemming all the way back to April 19th, Duff’s high-flying squad have also clinched consecutive away victories for the first time since returning from March’s international break.

Bet: Both teams to score at Waterford vs Shelbourne 1/1 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division battle @ 1xBet
