Match date: 02/07/2021

In derby match of 19th round of the 1st Irish league, in Dublin from 8.45 CET city rivals Bohemians and St. Patrick’s Athletic will play. Bohemians is fourth and eight points behind St. Patrick’s who shares first place ahead of this round with Shamrock and Sligo.

Bohemiams were unexpectedly convincingly defeated against Sligo 0:4 in the last round, although they were in good shape with 13 points from five previous league games before that. Especially convincing is team of coach Keith Long at their stadium. Bohemians are in great form at Dalymount Park and won five straight matches. Bohemians took 15 points from the last 18 at home, scoring 19 goals and conceded only three.

Long has no major problems with his team, all main players are healthy and ready, and especially motivated for redemption for heavy defeat in the last round. Striker Georgie Kelly has already scored 11 goals this season.

St. Patrick is enjoying a very good season, and if he hadn't played 1:1 against the modest team of Waterford in the last round, he would have been alone in the first place. But Coach Stephen O'Donnell can be satisfied, his team plays very good football, they scored 30 goals in 18 games led by the attacking duo Coughlan - Smith (a total of 12 goals).

- Bohemians are a good team. They probably didn't have the start they were looking for this season, but we have seen with a lot of their results that they can really put teams to the sword. They've had a couple of really good wins at Dalymount Park and our game against them at Richmond was 50-50 on the balance of it, but they probably had the best of opportunities despite our win - said coach O'Donnell.

Defender Shane Griffin is out (shoulder) while Alfie Lewis will serve a one match suspension after his red card in Waterford. Defender Cian Kelly has returned from injury and has joined First Division Wexford FC on loan for the rest of the season.

This is a match in which the host will do everything to get closer to the top three with a victory, while the guests defend first place. It's a derby of clubs from Dublin and everything is possible as a result, but my impression is that Bohemians and St. Patrick’s Athletic will play offensively and three goals in total could be a consequence of that...

WIN Score: 3:2 Profit: +0.71
