Drogheda United will welcome Dundalk to Head in the Game Park for a matchday 17 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 24th April 2021 ended in a Dundalk 2-1 win. Both sides have met thirteen times in the most recent seasons. Drogheda United has won 1 match, and Dundalk triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 3.54 goals, while both teams score 46% of the time.
Drogheda United's latest fixture against Bohemians ended in an away 5-0 loss. The Turks dominated the possession of the ball but didn't take advantage of it.
Dundalk's recent game against Longford Town ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn't enough to win three points. Dundalk put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 28th minute.
Although Drogheda United is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 9% home clean sheets.
Dundalk has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Dundalk wins 1.30 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Dundalk kept a clean sheet in just 30% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. The Turks has won just 36% of home games. On average they score 1.45 goals and concede 1.09 per game. Dundalk is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Drogheda United wins on average 1.36 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Dundalk. My prediction is Dundalk to win.
