Tip Reasoning

  • Dundalk have kept just one clean sheet in nine meetings against sides currently above them.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings between these sides.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Derry’s last five away games.

European football attainable

The FAI Cup final next weekend will have a huge impact on whether or not Derry City can make it into Europe next season. A win for St. Patrick’s Athletic, already qualified for Europe, in next week’s final against Bohemians would mean European football is awarded to fourth place.

Derry City are currently 5th in the table level on points with 4th place Bohs and need to win here in order to have any chance of a top-four finish.

Entertaining encounter expected

Prior to Derry’s 2-0 win over Sligo Rovers last Friday, Derry had drawn three games in succession scoring a late equaliser in each match.

They can never be ruled out and Ruadhri Higgins’ men will fight to the end to leave themselves with a chance of clinching Continental qualification.

The clubs have won one meeting each this season, drawing the other and Dundalk’s upturn in form will make this another competitive encounter. The hosts have won each of their last three games and after a turbulent season off the field have managed to get things right on it.

Derry have scored 21 goals in 17 away matches and have scored in all but one of their last 15 matches. Dundalk meanwhile, have won five games in succession at home and despite the last three victories coming against the sides below them in the table they should at least score here.

The Lilywhites won the last head-to-head at Oriel Park 2-1 however, this time around Derry have the incentive and I’m backing them to take all three points here to possibly finish fourth.
