Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Sunday, 23rd July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Oriel Park.
The match between Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers is rescheduled to be played on Sunday instead Friday following the two sides’ appearances in the European competitions.
The hosts will come into the game in a much better mood and we see them as massive favourites to maintain the impressive run in Premier Division.
The defending champions were off to a surprisingly slower kick off to the new campaign, but they have finally caught the wanted shape.
The Lilywhites will enter the game with a run of five consecutive league wins ever since the painful 0-3 loss to their bitter rivals Cork City at Oriel Park.
Moreover, Stephen Kenny’s men have not conceded a single goal during the mentioned streak.
Dundalk’s lethal attacking lineup, led by David McMillan, will have plenty of room to deliver in the final third since Shamrock’s defense has been everything but solid over the last couple of weeks.
Whereas Stephen Bradley tried to justify his players for conceding nine goals to Celtic in a friendly discussing the lack of the motivation, seeing his side conceding three goals to Mlada Boleslav (Europa League) and four to Burnley (friendly) was certainly nor the most pleasant feeling for the young manager.
Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers: Head to head
The Hoops have been the more successful side over the history, but Dundalk dominated the H2H tie in the last couple of years.
However, Shamrock’s negative run in head to head meetings with the Lilywhites came to an end in May when Rovers claimed a 2-1 victory at Tallaght Stadium in Dublin.
Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers: Prediction
