Sligo Rovers vs FH – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

An 85th minute strike gave FH a slender 1-0 lead in last week’s first leg. Can the Icelandic outfit hold on to their advantage in Sligo? Here are our top three free predictions for Thursday’s fixture between Sligo Rovers and FH.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by William Hill, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

FH Double Chance

FH possess far more European pedigree and experience than Sligo and that certainly showed in last week’s first leg. Rovers’ defeat in Iceland was their third reverse in six games and they have dropped points domestically in five of their last nine matches at home. FH will set up to frustrate at The Showgrounds in Thursday’s return fixture and they have the tools to avoid defeat again in Ireland.

Under 2.5 Goals

It took an 85th minute strike from Scot Steven Lennon to separate FH and Sligo Rovers in a closely contested first-leg affair in Iceland last week and Thursday’s second encounter should be just as cagey. Four of Rovers’ last five fixtured produced under 2.5 goals and our tip recommends sticking to the same market this week.

Match Handicap – FH +1

In a clash that promises to deliver little goalmouth action, FH stand out at an excellent price at +1 goal in the match handicap stakes. Sligo notched one or fewer goals in five of their last six assignments and a +1 handicap stake on their opponents would have delivered the good in four of the same six tussles.

Sligo Rovers vs FH: Match Preview

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers are enjoying a fine campaign domestically where they among the front runners in the race for the Irish Premier Division title, but like many of their compatriots, replicating their success in Europe should prove difficult. Rovers haven’t won a two-legged European tie of any description since 1995 and they could fall short again in their latest attempt this week.

FH

FH have been toiling in the early exchanges of the new Úrvalsdeild season where they have taken just 12 points from their first 11 fixtures, though they have enjoyed better fortunes in cup competitions with 4-1 and 1-0 wins over Njardvik and Sligo in the Icelandic Cup and Europa Conference League respectively. Last week’s match-winner Steven Lennon is the star of the show for Logi Ólafsson’s team up front.
