Dundalk vs Waterford
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Oriel Park (Dundalk).
Dundalk has stepped down to the third spot in the table after dropping points in three of the recent four fixtures in the league schedule. They are winless in the last two matches, following a 2-1 loss on the road against Bohemians last time out in the campaign.
And at home, they have been unbeaten in the three matches so far this season. In the meantime, Waterford will come in hot with the two-game winning streak on the road in their schedule, that too with a clean sheet in both the clashes.
The Blues are on an unbeaten streak for the past three fixtures in the campaign. But the goalless draw with Cork City in their previous encounter at home will probably draw them back before setting out on the road to face the reigning champions.

Dundalk vs Waterford Prediction
The reigning champions dropped points in the league lately, but Waterford hasn’t been able to win at Oriel Park since their 2003 victory in Division 1 fixture.
It has to be noted that the Blues haven’t scored in any of their clashes at this venue since 2017. Since 1999, the visitor hasn’t found the back of the net against Dundalk in Premier Division clashes as the visiting side.
The teams have averaged 2.3 goals in their h2h clashes with the Lilywhites as the host since 2017. Based on these stats, the best bet for the punters will be a no BTTS in the game, and probably the tip for under 3.5 goals from the goals area.
