The eighth match day of the Irish Premier League partly will close up with a single game in Sligo. There the locally based Rovers will meet Dundalk. Both sides demonstrate the different approach to football. Will this game be played with over 2,5 in total?
Last year Sligo finished on the ninth position just close to the relegation zone. The Rovers earned 39 points and had a four-point gap over the tenth Galway United. The previous team’s stats contained eight wins, fifteen draws and ten losses. Their goal ratio was following. 33 goals for and 44 goals against.
This year the Reds perform at the same level. They are eighth in the table and situates near by the dangerous area again. For your information, the Irish Premier League have been shrunk from twelve teams to ten comparing to the last season.
They lost three out of four opening fixtures. Also they have two wins and a draw. Plus, one postponed game. The hosts earned 7 points, scored eight goals and conceded eleven goals.
Dundalk is the runners-up of the last championship. The Lilywhites earned 69 points after 33 games. An overall team’s record included twenty-two wins, three draws and eight losses. They have scored 72 goals and conceded 24 goals.
This year the silver medalist had a mediocre start with two goalless draws. By the way, it has three similar results in the record. They won three other matches with a total score 10:0, including 8:0 against Limerick.
The guests possess the third place with 12 points. The leader Cork City has a four-point gap over them.
Two out of the last three H2H meetings ended with the same score in favor of Dundalk, 0:4 and 4:0. Another one ended with a 1:1 draw.
Five out of six Sligo’s matches ended with over 2,5 in total. Dundalk has been undefeated in its last six matches. Dundalk did not concede any goal in its last six matches.
Sligo has one of the poorest defense in the league. We expect a lot of goals from the guests’ side as from the favorites of this clash. We admit Dundalk will concede the first goal of this season. Thus, our betting option for Saturday is over 2,5 with a perfect coefficient of 2.05.
