Dundalk Double Chance

Defending Irish Premier Division champions Shamrock Rovers have hit a real wobble of late and their only two victories in their last eight matches came at the expense of the league’s bottom two sides Longford Town and Waterford. Dundalk meanwhile, have stepped up a few gears since Vinny Perth returned to the dugout and the Lilywhites are worth backing to push their unbeaten run to four matches at Rovers’ expense on Friday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Clashes between Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk have produced plenty of fireworks in recent seasons and five of the last six fixtures between the teams have produced over 2.5 goals. With 27 and 23 goals for The Hoops and Dundalk respectively this season, the teams have similar records in the final third and with quality to burn in the final third on both sides, the odds for further excitement look favourable.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams have scored in seven of Shamrock Rovers’ nine home assignments this term and the same market appeals at the odds quoted for Friday’s game. Goals were plundered by both teams in a massive eight of the last nine tussles between Rovers and The Town and with defensive issues prevalent on either side of the dividing line, chances to notch should present themselves at both ends again.

Shamrock Rovers vs Dundalk: Match Preview

Shamrock Rovers

Shamrock Rovers blazed a trail through the early parts of the 2021 campaign, though manager Stephen Bradley has seen his team’s form tail off dramatically in recent weeks. The Hoops’ meagre haul of just two victories from eight matches includes a four-game winless run at the Tallaght Stadium and Rovers have relinquished top spot as a result.

Dundalk

20201 been a season of upheaval for Dundalk so far, though the Lilywhites seem on firmer footing since manager Vinny Perth returned to the club for a second tenure. Dundalk have collected seven points from the nine available since Perth’s re-arrival and influential attacker Patrick Hoban – who scored the winner against Derry City last week – is slowly getting back to his best.
