Dundalk vs Bray Wanderers: Preview and Predictions

Dundalk vs Bray Wanderers
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 25 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Oriel Park, Dundalk.

An entirely one-sides contest is expected to be seen on Friday evening at Oriel Park where the table toppers are about to host the rock-bottomed Bray Wanderers side in the Matchday No 20 clash. The Lilywhites are enormous favourites to grab the spoils and maintain the two-point cushion head of Cork City who have a game in hand in second place.

Stephen Kenny has reasons to be thrilled with his team’s current form as Dundalk will head into the match off the back of five straight wins in all competitions. Four of these wins came by two or more goals difference, while the last term’s runners-up kept their net untouched in each of last two league ties against Bohemians and Waterford.

Dundalk vs Bray Wanderers: Head-to-head

Bray Wanderers have not been a tricky opposition to Dundalk in the most recent set of H2H encounters.

The Seagulls failed to find the back of the net in last four meetings with Dundalk who won three of these.

The Lilywhites came on top when the teams locked horns at the start of this season, clinching a 0-2 victory away at Carlisle Grounds.

Dundalk vs Bray Wanderers: Prediction

The visitors, who ended the previous season in the top half of the standings, lost 15 out of 19 league games this term clinching no more than 8 points in the process.

The Seagulls took just one point in last four games, conceding as many as 11 goals along the way. Furthermore, Bray Wanderers did not score at all in last two defeats to Cork City and Derry City and backing Dundalk to keep things tight at the back is our top betting option here, set at the odds of 1.66.

The Lilywhites are heavy favourites and we expect them to keep the splendid form going and clinch a demolishing victory by two or more goals. You can back Dundalk 1-.5 handicap at the odds of 1.50.
