Finn Harps vs Galway United Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For Finn Harps vs Galway United Betting Tips

Finn Harps aren’t doing too badly at all after being promoted from the First Division last season. 14 games into the League of Ireland Premier Division and they find themselves in 9th position, which might seem a precarious place but they have built up an eight point gap between them and the relegation playoff position.

Such is the tightness in the mid-table portion of the division, Finn Harps are actually only three points behind the top five in the table, and they are in decent form as well. Their 2-0 win over bottom of the table Longford Town last Friday made it two wins in a row for them and three games unbeaten, which combined with their early season successes has allowed them to accumulate 20 points.

Finn Harps did have to endure a nine match winless streak not too long ago though, so they can’t count themselves as favourites to stay up yet. It’s definitely a promising start to life in the top flight though.

Galway United narrowly avoided the drop last season as they finished in 10th position in the Premier Division. They were just two points above the relegation playoff position and three above the automatic drop spots.

This season was going better for them as they lost just twice in their opening 12 matches in all competitions and picked up five Premier Division victories, but they have slumped back into their old ways of late.

Galway United come into this match with just one win from their last ten matches in all competitions, with five defeats and four draws making up the rest of the results to put them in 5th position in the table. A defeat would see Finn Harps draw level on points with them and could send them down to 8th.

Considering the visitors poor winning form and the fact they have only won three of their 11 away matches in all competitions my prediction is for the hosts to get something from this game. Odds of 3/4 for a Finn Harps Win or Draw Double Chance look really good value too, so that’s what I’m backing alongside a 1-1 correct score prediction at 5/1.

Head to Head

Galway United have won five and drawn four of their nine historic meetings with Finn Harps.
