Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Shamrock Rovers win to nil

Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365

Looking to carry on what is becoming a very eye-catching start to the season, Shamrock Rovers will host UCD at Tallaght Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with Friday’s hosts, while they may have left it late away at Finn Harps last Friday, Shamrock’s 1-0 win sees them carrying on a very eye-catching start to the new campaign. Now holding a seven-point buffer at the top of the table and with their confidence at the highest it has been in recent memory, Stephen Bradley’s side have won their last four matches on the bounce and their newfound defensive stability will be most impressing fans in Dublin. Remarkably, Shamrock have conceded just two goals in their opening eight games and have gone nearly 500 minutes without picking the ball out of their net.

As for the visitors, while Shamrock might be enjoying a bright start to the new campaign the same cannot be said for a struggling OCD side. While they may have picked up a 3-0 win over leading relegation contenders Finn Harps prior to the international break, that is their only victory so far this season and they have famously struggled on the road. OCD have lost all three of their matches away from the Bowl and have scored just a single goal in any of those defeats. Given the gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a comfortable victory for Shamrock on Friday.
