Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

A tight, highly tactical defensive battle could be in store as Drogheda and Shelbourne go head-to-head, with almost nothing between the players in terms of who might win. The statistics do not provide any clear conclusion in that regard, but they are pointing strongly towards there being 2 goals or fewer in the fixture. It's a prediction which is available at best priced odds of 1.56 with the bookies, so we're making under 2.5 goals our tip of the day for this tie.
