Under 3.5 goals at Dundalk vs Waterford 3/5 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division showdown
Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Under 3.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport
Desperate to try and find a route back into the top-half of the Premier Division table, Dundalk will host a struggling Waterford on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make a return to winning ways last time out, Dundalk are a side that are still trying to find some much-needed stability. In their 14 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, five draws and five defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 19 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 17 and still sat three points adrift from breaking back into the top-half, it should be noted that The Reds hold the third-worst defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen landing a 2-0 victory against St Patrick’s Athletic on the road, Friday’s hosts have won just a pair of their last six Premier Division matchups. Interestingly, landing just two domestic home victories all season, Dundalk have also seen each of their previous nine home fixtures on the bounce finish with under 3.5 goals.
As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been nothing short of a woeful run of form, Waterford appear to be a side that are free-falling their way to a second-tier return. In their 14 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a pair of wins against 12 defeats, scoring just six and conceding 30 in return. Mustering themselves only a points tally of six and now finding themselves sat 11 points adrift of safety, it should also be noted that Waterford hold the worst-attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting blown away by Bohemians on the road, Friday’s guests have lost their last seven straight Premier Division matchups, managing to record just a single strike on their horror run. More worrying, Waterford have failed to bag an away goal in over 400 minutes of action.
