Shamrock Rovers to Win

A few seasons ago, any clash between Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk would have been considered a title tussle, though a gap has developed between the clubs more recently. Champions Rovers have won each of their last three home league encounters with the regressing Lilywhites and having collected more points on their own patch than any other side this term, the Hoops are worth backing to prevail again.

Under 2.5 Goals

The 2022 Premier Division campaign has made a low-scoring start and the league’s defences are dominating the action so far. Indeed, when Rovers and Dundalk last met at Oriel Park in March, the contest ended in stalemate following a drab 0-0 draw and another low-scoring tussle could ensue when the teams reconvene on Monday. 100% of Dundalk’s last four away assignments produced under 2.5 goals and we expect their skirmish with Rovers to follow suit.

First Half Result: Shamrock Rovers

Defending champions Shamrock Rovers already have some work to do to hunt down early pace-setters Derry City this term, however, had matches ended at half time this season, the Hoops would be sitting top of the pile. Stephen Bradley’s side have collected more first half points than any other outfit in the Irish top-flight in 2022 and bettors could find joy in backing them to hold another half time advantage against Dundalk.

Shamrock Rovers

Manager Stephen Bradley has few injury concerns as he aims to navigate another fixture at Tallaght Stadium. Rovers have enjoyed plenty of success against Dundalk in Dublin in recent campaigns and on Monday, the champions will be hunting their fourth straight victory over the Lilywhites in the capital.


Like their hosts, Dundalk have relatively few fitness concerns to contemplate ahead of Monday’s tricky test. Manager Stephen O’Donnell – who represented Shamrock Rovers for a season during his playing career – will be determined to get one over his new employers, though Dundalk’s limp start to the season indicates that might be a big ask.
