Lilywhites have been conceding goals on the regular too but have been impressive in the attacking third, which will surely have them very motivated on the day too. They now look to secure the top spot but Stephen Kenny has enjoyed an attacking approach and we’ll surely see that too – despite high stakes involved.

Waterford sit just four points behind the table-toppers but they have lost on their high team spirits recently, suffering a narrow 1-0 loss at Sligo Rovers and only earning two points in clashes against Shamrock Rovers and Bray Wanderers. They have a home clash against Limerick to bounce back but their away performances will be more worrying!

Dundalk vs Waterford Head-to-head

Dundalk have bagged four wins in last five head-to-head clashes.

Waterford have ended the streak with a 2-1 home win in early May, with two goals from Ismahil Akinade.

Blues have failed to find the net in both of their last two trips to Oriel Park, suffering a 3-0 League Cup loss in May 2017 and a 1-0 league loss in March 2018.

Dundalk vs Waterford Prediction

Waterford’s away woes could prove costly at Oriel Park once again and we don’t see them keeping up with the top of the table. We believe Dundalk have what it takes for another confident display in front of the home crowd and we’ll back them to win HT and FT at 1.83.

We do hope for a solid challenge and Waterford should be motivated to score goals as well. With that in mind, we’ll now go for another high-scoring clash and back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.55, which would be fourth such occasion in five head-to-head matchups.

Dundalk vs Waterford Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.83
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.55.
