Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Premier Division table, St Patrick’s will make the trip to Waterford on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, having to settle for what would have been a hugely frustrating stalemate last time out, Waterford find themselves firmly battling it out at the foot of the table. In their 35 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 12 wins, five draws and 18 defeats, scoring 36 and conceding 56 in return. Along with managing to muster a points tally of 41 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat in the final relegation spot, it should also be noted that Waterford hold the second-worst defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, playing out a 1-1 draw against an already relegated Longford Town, Friday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last four Premier Division contests. Likewise, it’s also worth highlighting that Waterford have seen four of their last five fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while St Patrick’s Athletic might have managed to wrap up a European finish with time to spare, they are seeking an end-of-season boost here. In their 35 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 18 wins, seven draws and 10 defeats, scoring 56 and conceding 42 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 61, they find themselves sat second in the table and all but securing a silver medal finish. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 2-2 draw against Finn Harps on home soil, St Patrick’s have failed to win any of their last three top-flight contests. Likewise, it should also be noted, with Friday’s guests seeing three of their last four matchups finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
