Dundalk

Having booked their place in the Europa League group stages with a 3-1 win over Faroe Islands' Klaksvikar Itrottarfelag on October 1, Dundalk drew three days later against relegation-threatened Finn Harps.

It would've been a sobering experience after their European success, but they have two games in hand and an opportunity to break into the top three this week. Next up is an away trip to Richmond Park, with fellow Europa League-chasing St. Patrick's hosting them on Friday evening.

Time is ticking and this week's hosts can't afford to drop many points in their top three pursuit, while Dundalk's inconsistent league form is a worry. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

St Patrick's vs Dundalk Betting Tips

If Dundalk were able to replicate their Europa League success in Ireland's Premier Division, they wouldn't have a worry in the world ahead of Friday. Instead, they've won just one of their last seven top-flight games and were held scoreless against Finn Harps (9th) on Sunday.

Sure, perhaps there was some fatigue after Thursday's morale-boosting playoff victory. Regardless, it's perhaps a bigger concern for new head coach Alan Reynolds to consider: their squad isn't deep enough to be strong on multiple fronts.

After a three-year stint with Waterford, the 46-year-old has a real task on his hands here. An away trip to St. Patrick's – unbeaten in four with successive wins – feels like an ominous prospect.

League leaders Shamrock Rovers (38 pts) and second-placed Bohemian (30) already seem too far away after 14 matches, but third isn't out of the question.

Waterford (20) currently occupy the position with four games to play though one of these two sides will overtake them with a win. Who can hold their nerve in a must-win encounter for both?

St Patrick's vs Dundalk Correct Score Predictions

In 17 previous H2H meetings, Dundalk are overwhelmingly superior (11 wins, three draws and defeats) and they'll be favourites again this weekend. Two quick-fire goals in three first-half minutes saw the pair share the points on July 31, but it'll be interesting to see how they fare this time around.
