St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win
With 13 points in the bank after eight matches, third-placed St. Patrick’s Athletic have made a solid start to the new Premier Division campaign under Tim Clancy and they can make home advantage count big against Dundalk on Friday. The visitors have yet to win on the road this term and they looked well off the pace in their last away test when they lost at an ordinary Drogheda outfit (1-0). Pats are another step up in class from there and they can take advantage of the Lilywhites’ travel sickness.
Under 2.5 Goals
We’ve tipped St. Patrick’s Athletic to eventually pocket the points this week, however, it would be unwise to expect a deluge of goalmouth action at Richmond Park. Five of the host’s last six and each of Dundalk’s last five Premier Division assignments have produced under 2.5 goals and the net rippled just the once when the teams last met in October. Margins should be similarly thin on Friday, so back under 2.5 goals to be notched again.
Correct Score: St. Patrick’s Athletic 1-0 Dundalk
Pats eked out a 1-0 victory when they last locked horns with Dundalk back in October and bettors on the lookout for a bigger price this week might fancy history to repeat itself on Friday. St. Patrick’s rattled the net exactly once in each of their last two league fixtures, while Dundalk failed to score completely in three of their last five and a single effort could be enough to decide the outcome of this week’s tussle.
