This is a top versus bottom clash as Bray Wanderers are currently occupying the last position while Dundalk are in 2nd spot.

Bray looked destined for the relegation this term as they have just 15 points from 28 games. They are 9 points behind the relegation playoff spot and 14 points below Sligo Rovers in the safe position.

Bray will enter this game from 4 straight competitive defeats, they last won a competitive game in the beginning of July. Since then, they have lost 6-0 to Bohemians, 3-1 to cork, 3-0 to St Patrick’s and 3-1 to Finn Harps. They need more than a miracle to get a result against a strong side like Dundalk.

On the contrary, Dundalk are closely following the leaders Cork City and still have 2 outstanding games to play. They are on an 11-game winning streak in the league but have won only 3 of their last competitive games.

Bray Wanderers vs Dundalk: Head to Head

  • Dundalk are unbeaten against Bray in their last 5 league meetings, having won 4 of the games and drawn once.
  • Dundalk have lost just twice against Bray in their last 14 league meetings and last 15 meetings in all competitions.
  • Bray have failed to score in any of their last 5 meetings against Dundalk irrespective of the playing ground.

Bray Wanderers vs Dundalk: Prediction

Dundalk are undoubtedly the favorites in this game considering the recent form of the two teams and their previous meetings. So punters cannot doubt on this game ending in anything less than an away win. However, the Dundalk win is offered at the smallest possible price by every bookie out in the market.

Still, Bray Wanderers could take some positives from their recent home form despite knowing that they have no chance in this game. They will sit in the defense deep for most of the game making it hard for the visitors to tear them apart. My tip for this game is based on this assessment and go for Wanderers to avoid a heavy defeat this weekend.
