Shamrock Rovers vs Dundalk
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 28 June 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).
The best game the Premier Division has to offer this season in all probability. Two of the best teams take on each other, with their eyes set on the lone Champions League spot available.
Dundalk is at the top of the table, and it certainly is with apt reason. They have scored the most number of goals, conceded the least, and have lost just two games so far, whereas the next best is five.
They were on the road the last day and registered a 0-3 win against Finn Harps to post a routine set of three points on the board. In fact, the group returned a combined scoreline of 10-1, from their last three ties.
Shamrock needs this win if they are serious about topping the league, and more importantly, for the UCL ticket. They are already trailing by five points behind the leader, and should they go on to lose this fixture, the gap would become eight points, which would be practically insurmountable, considering the form Dundalk is currently in.

Shamrock Rovers vs Dundalk Prediction
Dundalk is the best team in contention, and with a win in this fixture, they could make a major leap towards the league title, and their CL dream. They are on the right path to do that as well. The squad won the last seven games in a row, and 12 of the last 13 too.
Going on, the side has lost just four times in their last 43 fixtures and found the back of the net twice or more in 11 of their last 12 ties. They also kept clean sheets in five of their last seven battles.
In addition, they have the best offense and defense in the entire league, with the players returning the best stats in both categories.
Meanwhile, Shamrock is winless in their last two games, and in five of their last nine too. They let in two or more goals in both of their last games.
Importantly, 13 of the last 17 h2h wins and six of the last seven at this venue went to the current table-toppers. Count on them to avoid a loss in this crucial fixture, and to register a winning position in at least one of the halves.
