Our Prediction:

Portlaoise will win

Portlaoise – St Josephs Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 07:30

John-Paul Duarte has scored 24 goals in 54 appearances for St. Josephs and teammate Juanfri has an impressive 20 goals in just 27 matches since moving to the club from Antequera in 2018. Rangers have, so far, managed to keep hold of star striker Alfredo Morelos and will be hoping to unleash the striker on St. Josephs tomorrow night, but the 23-year-old Colombian has been linked with moves away from the club this summer.

We wouldnt be surprised to see him two goals or more against St Josephs. Team from Ibrox destroyed the French opposition winning the match 4-0. Alfredo Morelos is once again carrying the squad when it comes to offense. Steven Gerrard has a lot of reasons for optimism when it comes to EL group stage placement. The squad was looking great during the weekend in a friendly match against Olympique Marseille.

Rangers vs St Josephs FC Stats

Josephs beat Prishtina in the 2nd leg last round 2-0 thanks to goals late in the second half from Villar and Juanfri, but the game was marred by the sending-off of Rojas for the hosts and Prishtina duo Dallku and Bekteshi. Rangers have only played one pre-season game so far but they produced a 5-0 win against English side Oxford United in that match and were able to give game time to all of their six new signings. St.

Add in the size of Cieran Farrell, Jamie Farrell and Padraig McEvoy, and the mobility of Alan Farrell, and there is a lot to like about this Ballylinan team. Ballylinan were no less impressive in battling their way past Killeshin, a tough game in tough conditions which they showed a lot of character to win. They are no longer overly reliant on Gary Walsh for scores, and the development of Cathail Dunne and Andy McEvoy in recent years has made them a really dangerous team.

Rangers were 4-0 winners in the first meeting between these two, which means theyre all but through now anyway. With little in the way of preseason friendlies, the Gers are relying on these games to get their players up to speed, while they need to get minutes under their belt with a potentially tricky clash to come in the next round. The Gers have a commanding lead over St Josephs, but they are unlikely to use that in order to rest players.

Not so long ago the Gers were eliminated by a Luxembourg representative Progres Niederkorn.

The Scottish side has already secured the next round by demolishing the opposition seven days ago 4-0.

Josephs where the Scottish Premiership side are huge favourites with the bookmakers to win.
