Coleraine vs Ballymena Prediction, Head-To-Head, Live Stream Time, Date, Team News, Lineups Odds, STATS, Tips, And Betting Trends, Where To Watch Live Northern Irish Premiership 2022 Today Who Will Win Match Details – December 26

Coleraine will be looking for a repeat of their recent 2-0 Premiership victory over Crusaders. Aaron Jarvis (12′) and Evan McLaughlin (61′) scored for Coleraine. A zero in the scoreline is a typical occurrence in recent Coleraine games. In the six matches preceding this one, a bet on BTTS would have been a loser in five of them.

Ballymena United and their travelling supporters will be looking for a better outcome in this game after losing their previous game against Portadown in Premiership play. Portadown’s goal came from Josh Archer (37′).


We believe Coleraine should take a lot of shots on goal and make them count. Ballymena United, on the other hand, will find it difficult to score their own goal, though we believe they will have enough chances to do so. Coleraine will win by a comfortable 3-1 margin when the final whistle sounds.
