Sligo Rovers will welcome Drogheda United to The Showgrounds for a matchday 15 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 30th April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met thirteen times in the most recent seasons. Sligo Rovers has won 4 matches, and Drogheda United triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.62 goals, while both teams score 69% of the time.

Sligo Rovers's latest fixture against Finn Harps ended in an away 2-1 win. Sligo Rovers was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Sligo Rovers scored in both halves in the 6th and 60th minute.

Drogheda United's recent game against Derry City ended in a home 1-2 loss. The Drogs's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Drogheda United deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 62nd minute.

So far, Sligo Rovers plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.71 points per away game on average compared to 1.50 points at home. Sligo Rovers's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 38% of home games.

Drogheda United has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. The Boynesiders has collected 1.86 points on average per away game, compared to 1.50 at home.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Sligo Rovers or Draw.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.6 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 41% of Sligo Rovers's home and Drogheda United's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 47% of Sligo Rovers's home and Drogheda United's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
