Dundalk vs Finn Harps
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Oriel Park.
Dundalk lost the supremacy in Republic of Ireland in the most painful way as they can’t stay at least competitive to Cork City in the new season of Premier Division.
The reigning champions are, however, still dominant over the rest of the teams and thy will come into the game with Finn Harps as massive favourites to pick up an easy victory in front of their fans.
The Lilywhites recovered after a painful 0-3 defeat to their arch-rivals in some style as they delivered as many as six goals past Drogheda United last Friday on the road.
David McMillan took his tally to double digits with two goals late in the first half, while Patrick McEleney, Michael Duffy and Ciaran Kilduff also got their names on the scoreline.
Harps have been nowhere near such an attacking form as they failed to find the back of the net in consecutive fixtures with Sligo and Shamrock Rovers.
The situation for Ollie Horgan and his men is even tougher on the road where they notched a single goal in last four matches.

Dundalk vs Finn Harps: Prediction
