Sligo Rovers to win

Bohemians have failed to win any of their last five matches in the Irish Premier Division

Bohemians will take on Sligo Rovers in the Irish Premier Division on Friday, 12 July with the home side looking to move further clear of the relegation zone.

Although some teams in the top flight are about to start their run-in, Bohemians will feel as if they are still in the middle of their season given the fact they have as many as four games in hand on some teams in the league.

It means that their position of 8th is perhaps a little unrepresentative of their season but their recent form will need to improve if they are to have a stress-free end to the season.

Ahead of kick-off, check out our Bohemians vs Sligo Rovers prediction below.

Bohemians vs Sligo Rovers prediction: Rovers to reign supreme

Key stats

  • Bohemians have picked up just three points out of the last 15 available.
  • Sligo Rovers won their last two matches and four of their last six.
  • Six of Sligo Rovers' last eight matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Correct score prediction: Bohemians 1-2 Sligo Rovers

Winning football matches 2-1 is a habit that Sligo Rovers have gotten into in recent weeks with three of their last four victories coming by this scoreline. It's also a scoreline that fits what we expect here as Bohemians have scored at least one goal in four of their last five home league matches.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bohemians go in as favourites

  • HOME: 4/6 (1.67) – 60%
  • DRAW: 13/5 (3.60) – 27.8%
  • AWAY: 16/5 (4.20) – 23.8%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Bohemians vs Sligo Rovers odds clearly take into account the home side's apparent ‘false' position in the league table. However, they do perhaps fail to consider how poorly Bohemians have played of late and the fact that Sligo Rovers have won their last two matches. A Sligo Rovers win at 16/5 is fantastic value.

There are plenty of other value bets to be had over the next 24 hours. Check them out via our betting tips for today page.

Last five H2Hs: Advantage Bohemians

Another reason why Bohemians are priced as favourites for this match could be down to their recent record against Sligo Rovers. They have won three of their last five matches against Rovers including a 3-0 away win just two months ago. Sligo Rovers have won just one of the last five H2Hs but haven't beaten them away from home since 2021.

Bohemians preview: Looking to climb the table

Bohemians haven't been champions of Ireland since 2009 and that isn't going to change this year. After finishing 6th last season, they were simply looking for another solid campaign but at present they are involved in the relegation battle.

Predicted lineup: Chorazka (GK), Carroll, Byrne, Kirk, Miller, McDonell, Flores, Clarke, Rooney, Akintunde & Grant

Sligo Rovers preview: Looking to leapfrog their opponents

Sligo Rovers have been champions more recently than Bohemians but they are perhaps not quite as big in terms of stature. They have played some good stuff at times this season but inconsistencies have stopped them from being a force at the top of the table.

Predicted lineup: McGinty (GK), Hutchinson, Denham, Pijnaker, Wiggett, Mallon, Fitzgerald, Malley, Chapman, Morahan & Waweru

Player to watch: Ellis Chapman

Ellis Chapman is having a good season for Sligo Rovers and has become one of the best goalscoring midfielders in the Irish Premier Division. The 23-year-old netted a brace on his last outing against Derry City so will be full of confidence coming into this one.

Chapman is more than just a goalscoring midfielder, though. He is combative in nature and will put himself amongst it in the middle of the park. Bohemians will do very well to keep him out of the game.
