Shamrock Rovers take on the visitors Dundalk in the round 28 match of Irish Premier Division. The match will be played on Sunday, August 21st at Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).
The "Hoops" play on two fronts, but it seems that the team still does not get into the Europa League. But in his homeland, Shamrock is still the first with a seemingly comfortable four-point advantage and a match in hand. However, the heavy schedule knocked the club's attack off target. In the last ten rounds, the hosts scored only 11 times, while in three games they did not score at all, and in four they limited themselves to one. And although the results in their field are excellent and only four points are lost, in the last match the “Hoops” could not beat the eighth team of the country - Drogheda. It will be strategically important not to lose points to Dundalk, as was the case with Drogheda. Just a fact - long flights and constant match practice takes not only strength, but also points in the domestic championship.

The visitors did not participate in European competitions and play in a loose schedule. For fifteen recent rounds, the team suffered only one defeat. The most peaceful club of the current championship loses points solely due to a draw, concedes less and less on foreign fields and is located on the second line. The third attack, the second most reliable defense. Dundalk travels to Dublin in order to try to win and get close to the leader. Surprisingly, bookmakers rate this probability at 4.20.
Three matches have been played between the opponents this year and the “Hoops” were able to win only once. The last one took place in June and the visitors won that match. Given the unsuccessful trip to Budapest and the defeat from Ferencvaros, fatigue and poor performance in recent matches, Dundalk has a good chance not to lose this meeting. Shamrock at the moment definitely do not look utterly stronger than his opponent.
Prediction for the match: Dundalk to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
