Under 2.5 goals at St Patrick’s Athletic vs Finn Harps 4/6 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division contest

Posted August 6th, 2020 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

In a battle between two sides continuing to show their issues in front of goal, St Patrick’s Athletic will host Finn Harps on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, continuing to show their inconsistencies either side of the enforced break, St Patrick’s Athletic already find themselves some way off the European positions. In their opening six Premier Division matchups this year, they have recorded just a pair of wins, one draw and three defeats, scoring four and conceding five in return. Collecting just seven points out of a possible 18 at the start of the 2020 campaign, St Patrick’s already find themselves sat five points adrift of the top-three and holding the third-worst attacking record in the division. As for their previous run of results, Friday’s hosts have managed to win just one of their last four Premier Division matchups either side of the interruption and have also won just one of their last six home contests continuing on from last season. It is also worth highlighting that each of those previous six home fixtures have seen under 2.5 goals by the final whistle.

As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a woeful run of form either side of football’s enforced break, Finn Harps still find themselves firmly battling it out at the foot of the table. In their opening six Premier Division matchups this season, they have recorded just a single win, one draw and four defeats, scoring three and conceding 10 in return. With a points tally of just four out of a possible 18, Finn Harps hold just a one-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, the guests find themselves in the midst of a four-match losing run and even more worrying, the Harps have scored just a single goal in that quartet of defeats. It is also worth highlighting that Friday’s guests hold the second-worst attacking record in Ireland’s top-flight and we’re backing another low-scoring encounter on Friday.
