Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers Prediction & Match Preview

Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Monday, 23 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:20 UK / 20:20 CET
Venue: Oriel Park (Dundalk).

Dundalk pulled off a narrow 1-0 win over Cork City in their last fixture in the league and are maintaining a very healthy ten-point lead over Shamrock Rovers at the top.

The squad are unbeaten in their last nine games across various competitions and have won with a clean sheet intact in five of those clashes as well.

Shamrock Rovers have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their recent matchups, and are sporting a stellar seven-match winning streak in their respective domestic campaign.

Their last fixture in the Premier Division saw them take down Bohemians by a 1-0 scoreline, while their previous outing in the same ended in a whopping 5-1 victory over Waterford.

However, Shamrock Rovers have their work cut out for them this week as getting the better of the table toppers, especially in their own backyard where they are yet to taste defeat, is sizing up to be too herculean a task to pull off.

Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers Prediction

The hosts are showing no signs of slowing down at all, and have not stumbled in any of their last fifteen games in the Premier Division. It is also worth mentioning that Dundalk have been at their best in the comforts of their home and have scored thirty-five goals in the process while conceding just six.

On the other hand, the visitors have been at the losing end four times in their trips on the road so far. In addition, Shamrock Rovers have managed to get the better of this foe just twice in their last ten visits to this venue. Taking into account that the hosts secured the bragging rights when they last met here as well, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Dundalk at the end of the ninety minutes.

Furthermore, the visitors have netted seven goals from their last two outings in the league while Dundalk have scored four of their own from their previous two at home. Given that their last three head to head games here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, a high scoring matchup is definitely looming large in this one.
