Our football match prediction:
Shamrock Rovers will be looking to bounce back from a 9-0 loss to Celtic when they take on Mlada Boleslav at their Tallaght Stadium in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round. The Hoops experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the friendly against the Scottish champions, but it has to be noted that coach Stephen Bradley rested key players for Thursday’s football match against Mlada Boleslav. Shamrock Rovers eliminated Stjarnan of Iceland in the first qualifying round, but beating the Czech side in the upcoming double-header is easier said than done. Mlada Boleslav suffered a shocking loss to Shkendija in the Europa League qualifiers last term and, no doubt, they are determined to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. Seeing that Tallaght Stadium will host the first leg, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Thursday’s game.
