Dungannon Swifts will welcome Linfield to Stangmore Park for a matchday 21 fixture in Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership. The last meeting on 30th October 2021 ended in a Linfield 3-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-six times in the most recent seasons. Dungannon Swifts has won 1 match, and Linfield triumphed in 22. Recent outings average 3.08 goals, while both teams score 27% of the time.

Dungannon Swifts's latest fixture against Warrenpoint Town ended in an away 2-1 win. Dungannon Swifts was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Dungannon Swifts was much better than Warrenpoint Town in the second half and scored in the 65th and 85th minute.

Linfield's recent game against Glentoran ended in a home 1-1 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Linfield put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 36th minute.

So far, Dungannon Swifts plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.00 points per away game on average compared to 0.83 points at home. Although Dungannon Swifts 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 8% home clean sheets.

Linfield has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Linfield wins 2.08 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Dungannon Swifts has won just 25% of home games. On average they score 1.42 goals and concede 2.67 per game. Linfield 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. Dungannon Swifts wins on average 0.83 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Linfield. My prediction is Linfield to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.05 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 60% of Dungannon Swifts's home and Linfield's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
