The team will attempt to get out of the relegation zone against Sligo Rovers who are third in the league.

Goals Over/Under – Under 2.5
Sligo Rovers is the team with the lowest average goals per match in the Premier Division of Ireland. After 27 rounds, their average is 1.9 goals per match while Dundalk's is 2.6. In each case, Sligo Rovers have seen 3 or more goals in only 8 matches. Dundalk's most recent home games were goal-packed, no doubt, but they failed have been having a hard time against Sligo Rovers this season. Last but not least, Sligo's last 4 away matches, for example, ended with just a single scored goal.
Dundalk To Score In 1st Half – No
Just as we are expecting a match without goals, we expect that Dundalk will not score an early goal. The performance of both teams during the latest months shows that Dundalk scores more in the second half while Sligo Rovers's away matches often end with a goalless first half.
Half Time Result – Draw
As mentioned in the previous tip, most of Sligo Rover's first halves remain goalless. In other words, we do not expect something significant to happen before half time on Friday, as Dundalk is also not among the teams with the most dangerous attacking players. At least, not anymore. There is always a chance that the match will include plenty of goals and everything will be against us but it would be a complete surprise.
