St Fiaccs Parkville United: Preview and Prediction

Parkville United have taken just one point from their last three Ireland. Carlow League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Parkville United are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions St Fiaccs should prove no easy feat either – Parkville United haven’t won against any Ireland. Carlow League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

St Fiaccs have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. St Fiaccs dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Ireland. Carlow League’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

St Fiaccs are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about St Fiaccs and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in St Fiaccs’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Parkville United are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Parkville United took a point away from St Fiaccs (1-1 draw).

Notably, St Fiaccs’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. St Fiaccs have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Ireland. Carlow League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Parkville United, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Parkville United getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Parkville United are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), St Fiaccs hold the best away record in the Ireland. Carlow League (W8 D2 L1). Parkville United’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with St Fiaccs’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the St Fiaccsns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 St Fiaccs win at 15/2 with bet365.
