Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

In a contest that could prove to be another lively affair this weekend, Dundalk will welcome Shamrock Rovers to Oriel Park on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Dundalk might still find themselves looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, the former Irish champions are enjoying a much-needed boost. Despite being left disappointed to have eventually settled for an action-packed 2-2 draw against Finn Harps on the road last weekend, Vinny Perth’s side have played their way out of the relegation play-off spot. Still boosted by those back-to-back 4-1 and 2-1 wins against Sligo Rovers and Bohemians when drawing a close to September, Dundalk are unbeaten in their last five matchups across all formats. Desperate to try and cause an upset on home soil this week, it should be noted that the Lilywhites have gained a recent reputation for their lively outcomes. In fact, each of Dundalk’s last six contests have finished with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Shamrock Rovers might have endured a torrid run when heading into September, the runaway leaders have bounced back in some style. Cruising their way towards retaining their Premier Division crown, the Hoops have won each of their last four matchups across all formats and hold a commanding nine-point buffer at the top of the table. Last seen opening October with a 2-1 victory against Derry City on home soil, Stephen Bradley’s men have also collected 12 points from their last five top-flight contests on the road. Looking to lay down another marker this weekend, it should be noted that Friday’s opponents have a habit of producing fireworks. With each of the last five meetings between the two sides finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
