A common feature of recent Galway United games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.

Taking their previous 6 matches before this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've lost.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Galway United:

  • remain unbeaten by Sligo Rovers in home games against them for the last 2 league games.

Sligo Rovers will come into the clash after a 1-0 Premier Division win versus St. Patrick's Athletic in their most recent fixture.

In that match, Sligo Rovers managed 33% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Sligo Rovers was Ellis Chapman (22'). St. Patrick's Athletic had 12 shots at goal with 5 of them on target.

The numbers tell their own story, and Sligo Rovers have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals in total. Defensively, Sligo Rovers could really do with shoring things up. We will just have to find out if that trend can be sustained into this next match.

👥 Head to head

A review of their prior head to head clashes dating back to 27/08/2016 shows us that Galway United have won 1 of them & Sligo Rovers 2, with the tally of drawn matches standing at 3.

A sum of 12 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 6 of them for Tribesman and 6 being from The Bit o' Red. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.

The last league match featuring the two was Premier Division match day 9 on 22/04/2024 when it ended Sligo Rovers 0-0 Galway United.

In that game, Sligo Rovers managed 67% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 3 on target.

At the other end, Galway United had 12 shots on goal with 5 of them on target.

The match was refereed by Eoghan O'Shea.

📰 Team News: Galway United

The Galway United boss John Caulfield will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of before this game with a completely healthy group available to select from. Karl O'Sullivan is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We are thinking that Tribesman should make use of the 4-2-3-1 system this time and select Brendan Clarke, Jeannot Esua, Rob Slevin, Killian Brouder, Al-Amin Kazeem, Maurice Nugent, Patrick Hickey, Connor O'Keeffe, David Hurley, Stephen Walsh and Ed McCarthy.

📰 Team News: Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers manager John Russell has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Nando Pijnaker (Rib fracture) and John Mahon (Achilles tendon problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We’re of the thinking that The Bit o' Red seem most likely to play in a 4-4-1-1 formation by sending out Ed McGinty, John Ross Wilson, Charlie Wiggett, Ollie Denham, Reece Hutchinson, Connor Malley, Stefan Radosavljevic, Niall Morahan, Fabrice Hartmann, Ellis Chapman and Max Mata.

🔮 Prediction

We think that Sligo Rovers will need to apply a lot of pressure to find the net against this Galway United team who we think will likely score one, at least.

We’re therefore predicting a narrow 1-0 winning score for Galway United at full-time.

Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
