Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 3 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET

Waterford are on a superb run at the moment, and especially so at home. Meanwhile, Dundalk are going through a worrying stretch, and are conceding goals in huge numbers as well. Likely, expect a win for the former this weekend at the Regional Sports Centre.

Waterford had a slow start to their campaign, but they have greatly improved their form lately. Not only are they consistently finding the back of the net, but they are also doling out wins in almost every game lately.

In the meantime, Dundalk are amongst the worst in the Irish top flight. They are placed second to last in the table, and have a total of just 27 points from their 23 games. Moreover, they also have an inferior h2h record in the recent past against this foe.

For the reasons, expect a win for Waterford this Friday.
