Derry City vs Dundalk – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

This game sees second take on third. Who will come out on top? Find out with our Derry City vs Dundalk preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Hosts to win

Dundalk’s results at home have been quite different from their results on the road; Stephen O’Donnell’s men have been one of the best home teams, and one of the worst home teams in the league this season. While Dundalk are unbeaten at home, they have no wins away from home; on the other hand, we have a Derry City side that lost just once in eight home games. Considering Dundalk’s poor record away from home, we’re siding with Derry City today.

Both sides could easily find the net

Dundalk and Derry City have played each other a lot of times, and those clashes usually feature lots of goals; in fact, both teams scored in five of the last six encounters between these two. It’s also fair to point out that five of Dundalk’s last six games featured goals at both ends; and considering Derry City found the net in 11 of their last 13 games, both teams should score here.

Going over 2.5 goals

These are two of the highest scoring teams in the league; only Derry City and Shamrock Rovers have scored more goals than Dundalk this season. It’s important to note that all of Dundalk’s last four games went over 2.5; three of the last four clashes between Dundalk and Derry City have also seen at least three goals scored. Considering Derry City have been the highest scoring team in the First Division this season, we should expect some goals in this match.
