We prepared the Dundalk vs Shamrock Rovers prediction for this Monday. The teams enter the pitch for the 32nd round of the Irish Championship. At the end of the post, check our free tip for your sports betting, be sure to check it out.
The Irish Championship has a different format than what we are used to in the European leagues. There are only ten teams that play each other 4 times.
The Dundalk team entered the Irish Championship as a favourite for the title. Thus, the club fulfilled its role and led the championship by 12 points.
If they confirm the victory in the next match, they will mathematically secure the tournament title.
Besides, in competition, the team does not lose in more than 20 games. In total there are 31 for the championship, 24 wins, 5 draws and only two losses.
In their last match, the team faced away from home Waterford, a team undoubtedly inferior to their team, in the end, won by 1-0.
It was a slightly disputed match where the home team had even more chances to score.
However, the Dundalk team was stopped with many fouls and had difficulty coping with an opponent’s hard game.
However, it showed the quality of a champion team and although it did not start very well the first half, found its goal and after that dominated the match.
The Shamrock Rovers team are second in the Irish Championship, with five matches left for the team. A position that is already guaranteed until the end of the championship.
Although not a hotly contested league, a good stand will give the right to play in the first leg of next season’s Europa League qualification.
It is a competitive team for Irish football, so it still has mathematical chances of winning the title. However, this will hardly happen, since the team’s position in the championship is practically defined.
The team comes from a goalless draw against St. Patrick. However, it was the best team on the pitch, just failed to reach the goal. It was stopped by its opponent who ended up receiving 5 yellow cards in the match.
However, it is a team with good fitness that usually plays better in the second half.
This is a game worth the anticipated Irish Championship title for Dundalk. The team certainly wishes to celebrate the achievement at home.
Shamrock Rovers will play for the win but have a tough opponent ahead. That is, will face the best team of the championship and virtual champion.
Thus, we expect a good match, where both teams will go up in the pitch in search of goals.
So, our free guess is based on scoring opportunities that the match promises for both teams, as both have the quality for it.
