Sligo Rovers vs Dundalk Prediction & Match Preview

Sligo Rovers vs Dundalk
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Monday, 2 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Showgrounds (Sligo).

We have two teams coming from extreme ends of the form-spectrum. While Dundalk is the topper of the table, and is unbeaten in their last five match-days, with four wins in the period, their counterparts are winless in their last five attempts in the competition.

Not just in overall games, but the leader has been impressive on the road too. The squad has avoided a loss in their former five road trips, and four of these were wins as well.

Coming to the hosts though, despite their overall unimpressive form, the group has held up well at their home. They are unbeaten at this setting in the prior five attempts, and for sure this will not be a walk in the park for the potential champions.
