Over 1.5 goals at Finn Harps vs Dundalk 2/5 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division battle
Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves seeking a much-needed boost this weekend, Finn Harps will host Dundalk on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another woeful display last time out, the Finn Harps simply remain in a battle to avoid suffering an automatic relegation this year. In their 32 Irish Premier Division this season, they have recorded just four wins, seven draws and 21 defeats, scoring 29 and conceding 62 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 19, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in ninth and with just their goal difference stopping them from falling to the foot of the table. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Derry City, Finn Harps have failed to win any of their last five straight Premier Division contests. Likewise, along with collecting just a single point on that winless run, Friday’s hosts have also seen each of their last 13 straight domestic matchups finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, while Dundalk might still find themselves tipped as a standout pick to claim a European finish, they are also enduring their own downbeat run of form. In their 32 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 15 wins, 11 draws and six defeats, scoring 45 and conceding 25 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 56, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the standings and holding a one-point buffer from slipping out of the European places. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss at home against St. Patrick’s, Dundalk have lost three of their last four domestic matchups. Likewise, with Friday’s guests seeing each of their previous four contests finish with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
