Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Two sides who still have their sights set on clinching a European finish this season, Sligo Rovers will welcome Bohemians to the Showgrounds on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Sligo might have found themselves heading into the international break sat at the top of the Premier Division table, The Rovers have shown some real issues since opening June. Putting in a sluggish display away at Derry City earlier in the week and eventually lucky to have left with a 1-1 draw, Liam Buckley’s men have now managed to muster just a single point from any of their last three top-flight contests. Failing to bounce back from those back-to-back 2-0 and 2-1 losses against Drogheda and St Patrick’s Athletic earlier in the month, The Reds are in the midst of their worst run since opening the 2021 campaign. However, desperate to end their recent rut this weekend, Sligo should be boosted by their most recent meeting against Saturday’s guests. When the two sides faced off back in April, Buckley’s side picked up a 3-1 win on the road.
As for the visitors, while Sligo might find themselves in the midst of their season-worst blip, Dundalk have continued on what has been a real purple patch on either side of the international break. Last seen earlier in the week picking up a deserved victory against defending champions Shamrock Rovers on home soil, Keith Long’s men are unbeaten in each of their last five Premier Division matchups, mustering a hugely impressive 13 points. With that run also highlighted by a thumping 5-0 win against Drogheda United on June 18th, The Bohs will make the trip to the Showgrounds this weekend confident of causing an upset. However, It should be noted, with four of the last six matchups between Saturday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
