Drogheda Team News
Thanks to poor results from Finn Harps and UC Dublin, the Drogheda side will stay in the league. That is the shortest description of their performance so far. After 21 played games, they reached only 22 points, which sufficiently shows their quality this season.
15 out of a total of 22 points were won at home. The home ground has been their main asset in the season so far, and in front of their fans, they even managed to defeat the Shamrock Rovers team. However, they have only scored 11 goals in 10 home matches, and efficiency is one of their biggest problems.
In the previous 5 matches, they recorded 1 win, even 3 draws and 1 loss, with a very modest goal difference of 3:5.
Considering the somewhat weaker form, we are not sure how motivated the players of the home team will be to face one of the best teams in the league, which has not conceded a goal in the last 5 games.
Dundalk Team News
Despite the deficit of 9 points, Dundalk still has a chance for the title. Dundalk has played 2 matches less than Shamrock, and should he triumph both times, the title race would be exciting again.
The visiting team is the team with the least number of defeats in the league. So far they have only been defeated 2 times, and that can say a lot about their qualities. But, not everything is so great.
This season, they are “struggling” in away matches, which is best shown by the balance of 2 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses.
Also, in 10 away matches, they scored and conceded 8 goals each. It is interesting to note that the Dundalk team is in the best shape in the league. In the last 5 matches, they won 13 points, with an excellent goal difference of 6:0.
They are in a great rhythm, and they will certainly want to continue the series of positive results.
A triumph in this match would mean a lot to them in the fight for the title, so we believe that a win for the Dundalk team is an absolute imperative.

Drogheda vs. Dundalk Prediction
Another 3 points would bring Dundalk closer to the Shamrock side, while failure could mean the end of title dreams. Dundalk is in great form, while Drogheda has had a lot of goalscoring problems lately.
The home team practically has no competitive motives, while for the Dundalk team this match is a matter of “life and death”.
That’s why we expect a very aggressive approach from the players of the visiting team, and in such a relationship of strength, in our opinion, Dundalk is much closer to victory.
