Our Athlone v Waterford predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).
Athlone will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-1 First Division losing effort in their last game against Treaty United.
Three or more goals per match have been seen in 6 of the last 6 fixtures where Athlone have been involved. Opposing sides scored 14 of them in this period while Athlone amassed a tally of 8.

Opposing teams have managed 3 of this grand total. Putting that to one side, we must now wait to see if such a trend will be sustained in this next match or not.
