Finn Harps will welcome Drogheda United to Finn Park for a matchday 12 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 3rd April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. Finn Harps has won 4 matches, and Drogheda United triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.44 goals, while both teams score 56% of the time.

Finn Harps's last game in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division against Dundalk at home ended in a 1-1 draw. They had plenty of ball possession but less dangerous goal-scoring chances. Finn Harps scored before halftime in the 19th minute.

Drogheda United's recent game against St Patrick's Athl. ended in a home 3-1 win. Although The Drogs didn't match their opponent's intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Drogheda United had good chances in both halves and scored in the 22nd, 45th and 88th minute.

So far, Finn Harps plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.33 points per away game on average compared to 0.88 points at home. Although Finn Harps 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 13% home clean sheets.

Drogheda United has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. The Boynesiders has collected 1.63 points on average per away game, compared to 1.33 at home.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Finn Harps or Drogheda United to win.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.9 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Finn Harps's home and Drogheda United's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
