Two sides who find themselves battling it out at the top of Ireland’s Premier Division, Shamrock Rovers will host Dundalk on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, suffering a thumping defeat while on European duties earlier in the week, Shamrock Rovers will be seeking an immediate response here. In their 25 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 16 wins, five draws and four defeats, scoring 38 and conceding 15 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 53, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat at the top of the table and holding a four-point buffer over Sunday’s opponents. As for their recent run of results, last seen in midweek getting hit with a 4-0 loss against Hungarian side Ferencvaros on foreign soil, that was the first defeat that Shamrock have suffered from their last seven matchups across all formats. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, the defending Irish champions have seen seven of their last eight fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, managing to make an immediate return to winning ways last time out, Dundalk have continued on an impressive unbeaten run. In their 26 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 13 wins, 10 draws and three defeats, scoring 37 and conceding 17 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 49 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat second in the standings, the Reds also hold a commanding 10-point advantage from slipping out of the European places. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a deserved victory away at Bohemians, Dundalk have lost just one of their previous 17 contests across all formats. It should also be noted, with Sunday’s guests seeing five of their last six fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
