Sligo Rovers vs Derry City – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Derry City might not be topping the table but they’ve had a good season nonetheless. Will they be able to grab another win here? Find out with our Sligo Rovers vs Derry City preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Derry City to win the game

Sligo Rovers have managed just one point from a possible 12 in their last four games; they are winless in their last five games too, with two draws and three losses. To be fair, Derry City have had their fair share of struggles, as they have no wins in their last four games; however, it’s fair to point out that Derry City have been the best road team in the league this season. Ruaidhri Higgins’ men lost just once in eight games away from home, with five wins and two draws. Considering Derry City have no losses in their last five clashes with Sligo Rovers, we believe they’ll take all the points here.

Expecting both teams to score goals

Derry City have scored and conceded goals consistently over the course of their season; they’ve found the net in 12 of their last 14 games, whilst keeping two clean sheets in their last nine games. In like manner, Sligo Rovers have scored in all of their last nine games; conversely, they kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 games. Both teams scored in eight of Sligo’s last nine, and six of Derry City’s last nine games; on that note, we believe that both teams will score today.

Goals, goals, goals

We’ve already established that both teams have scored and conceded a lot of goals; as a result, most of their games tend to be high-scoring games. Three of Sligo’s last four games went over 2.5, while Derry City’s last six games have seen three goals scored on average. With this in mind, we should expect some goals in this match.
