Finn Harps vs Dundalk
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 6 March 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Finn Park, Ballybofey
The reigning Irish champions Dundalk FC were defeated in the derby match against Shamrock Rovers last Friday, and they are looking to bounce back and lift team morale.
Luckily, schedule paired them with one of the weakest teams in the league Finn Harps and anything but comfortable victories for the Lilywhites would be a big surprise.
Hosts from Ballybofey would be happy to avoid relegation this season. So far they have done a solid job so far, but faced only teams that don’t belong to the top. Dundalk are hot favorites for the win at low 1.30 odds.

Finn Harps vs Dundalk Prediction
There were some signs during the pre-season that Dundalk FC are going to have hard time defending the title this year. Loss to Longford Town was surprising, even though it was a friendly game.
The new season started really well for Vinny Perth’s team. They narrowly defeated Derry City and Shelbourne. The first comfortable win came in the third round at home against Cork City 3-0.
The above mentioned loss against Shamrock Rovers was surely a big blow for team’s confidence, but this is a good opportunity to regain it. We will back Dundalk not only to win this match but to demolish the opposition.
League’s best goalscorer from last season Pat Hoban has appeared on the scoring sheet three times this season already. We will back them to score first against Finn Harps.
