Shamrock Rovers Preview – Will the Robins suffer a fourth straight home loss?

Shamrock Rovers were the top dogs in Ireland once again last season, and Stephen Bradley’s boys will be gunning for another league title this season. They have made a strong start, winning 12 of their opening 18.

Shamrock fell to a shock 1-0 loss to Drogheda last time out, which ended a stunning run of nine wins and a draw from ten. They have had their problems on the road, but the Hoops have hardly put a foot wrong at Tallaght Stadium, dropping just two points.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1610 GMT, Thursday 26 May)

Shelbourne are back in the top tier of Irish football after winning the League of Ireland First Division last term. They have made a good start to their campaign, securing seven wins from 17 games.

The Shels have been in outstanding form under Damien Duff in recent weeks, winning four on the bounce. Prior to that, the Reds had suffered three straight defeats.

This will be their toughest challenge of the season yet, but in-form Shelbourne head to South Dublin full of confidence. Can Duff’s troops upset the champions and current leaders?


Shamrock Rovers vs Shelbourne Betting Advice

Shamrock left Tolka Park with maximum points last month, but last season’s second-tier winners did not make it easy for the Irish champions. In fact, Rovers needed an 89th-minute effort from Aaron Greene to nick a 2-1 win.

Shamrock have a good recent record in this fixture, unbeaten in seven (five wins, two draws). However, Shelbourne left with a point on their last visit to Tallaght.


Key Facts – Shamrock Rovers vs Shelbourne Betting Tip

  • Shamrock are seven points clear at the summit
  • Shelbourne have won four in a row
  • The Shels have not beaten Rovers since 2012


Shelbourne are in fine fettle after collecting 12 points from their past four matches, but Shamrock will be eager to return to winning ways after the slipup in Drogheda last time out.

Rovers won the reverse meeting 2-1, and we like the look of 11/4 for the Shamrock win and both teams to score on Friday. The home victory and over 2.5 goals is also worth having a punt on at the solid price of 11/10.
