Dundalk Prediction – Can Dundalk win 8 on the trot?

Dundalk are building up an ominous head of steam in the Irish top flight as they’ve won their last 7 league matches on the trot which has helped them open up a significant 12 point lead at the top of the domestic top flight ahead of tonight’s title rivals, Shamrock Rovers.

Indeed, Dundalk have become the team to beat in the Irish Premier Division as Monday night’s hosts have won 20 of their last 22 matches overall, and they look set to further add to their points tally here this evening despite facing their closest rivals at the top of the division.

Form on home turf at their Oriel Park has also been excellent this season as Dundalk possess a formidable home record of 13-2-0 35/6 which includes winning their last 7 matches at home on the trot, scoring a total of 19 goals for and conceding just in in reply as the hosts have also racked up 6 clean sheets on the trot.

The attacking trio of Hoban (13 goals), Duffy (10 goals) and Kelly (7 goals) should ensure further goals here this evening for the hosts as they look to continue their dominance.

Shamrock Rovers Prediction – Can Shamrock Rovers stay the pace?

Had it not been for the likes of the excellent Dundalk this season, Shamrock Rovers may well have found themselves top of the Irish Premier Division as they too bring a promising run of solid results into this important clash at the top of the division.

6 wins out of their last 9 matches overall for Shamrock Rovers gives the visitors a decent chance of holding up Dundalk’s imperious march towards the league title as they’ve recorded recent wins over Derry City 2-0 away, Waterford 5-1 away as well as back-to-back home wins against Waterford and Bohemians.

Shamrock Rovers have also suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches on their travels too, which was a 2-1 defeat at Bohemians, so the visitors have been hard to beat on the road too, but can they make in-roads against this formidable looking Dundalk side?

We turn to the head-to-head record for further insight then, and Dundalk have won 5 of the last 7 meetings against Shamrock Rovers and it’s this dominance that perhaps gives the hosts the edge here this evening.


Key-Facts – Dundalk v Shamrock Rovers

  • Dundalk have won 20 of their last 22 matches overall in the Premier Division
  • Dundalk have won their last 7 home matches on the trot in the league
  • Shamrock Rovers have lost just 1 out of their last 7 matches on their travels
