For example. both teams scored in all three fixtures that happened throughout this season. Since this will be the final round, we expect nothing less from these two teams for the 4th time in a row.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
While we sometimes see draws between these two sides, we expect this match to have a winner and over 2.5 at full time. On paper, Dundalk still have a chance to overtake Derry City but they need to win with a margin of four goals. Of course, this is impossible but we expect them to give their best and score goals in this match. We expect it from both sides as no team will want to lose its final game of the season.
Correct Score Prediction: 1:2 to Dundalk
Dundalk won the last time they visited Derry City this season and we expect the similar result in this fixture. That 0:4 win margin is impossible and we are sure that Dundalk realize it too. This will be a close game between the two teams like every single one we have seen over the past few years. We expect Dundalk to win it because their form is better right now and they have more to fight for.
Derry vs Dundalk: Match Preview
Derry City Preview
Derry City definitely came close to dethroning Shamrock Rovers this season but not close enough. As soon as it became apparent that they will not win the championship, we saw a decline in motivation in the past month and the team has not won a game in three consecutive rounds. They are an incredible side for the level of football of the Irish Premier Division and rightfully finish the season in Top 3.
Dundalk have more work to do before they return to the top in Ireland. The team was once a champion every single season for several years in a row and then went into crisis and has not recovered yet. This season was successful overall and with the previous round win, they secured a spot in Top 3. If they manage to improve the defense ahead of the next season, they will be a contender for the title.
