Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Tallaght Stadium will host Tuesday’s Champions League qualifier between Shamrock Rovers and Hibernians, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in European competitions. Shamrock look unstoppable at the moment, with the team winning each of their last three league fixtures, and they are surely capable of beating Hibernians on home soil. A man to watch in the home team will be Graham Burke, who has netted seven goals in the Irish Premier Division to date.
The Maltese champions, on the other hand, aim to claim a major scalp in the Champions League first qualifying round, but seeing that Shamrock Rovers are in the middle of the season, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. You should know that Hibernians played out a 2-2 draw with Gzira in their last warm-up game before the trip to Dublin.
