Dundalk vs Longford by Shibby

The hosts head into this game in fine form, they are currently 6 points clear at the top, however, they have played an extra game than Cork City, who recently beat Dundalk 1-0. Dundalk are the current champions and have won the league for the past 2 seasons, with Cork City finishing 2nd on both occasions! This season I think Cork City will make a real push for the title, however, after seeing Dundalk in the past few games I think they will be hard to beat!!

Dundalk have won 9 of their last 10 games, the only game they lost was a couple of weeks ago vs Cork. Their last fixture was a 5-0 away win vs 3rd placed Derry City. Although their home victories haven't been huge ones, I think their last 5-0 drubbing will have injected a huge confidence boost. They looked very impressive and the score could have been 10-0. Dundalk have 43 points from 17 games and have a +34 goal difference.

I think they will push on tomorrow and play a strong team knowing that Cork will continue to pile on the pressure. The visitors for the game are currently bottom of the league and currently only have 8 points from their 17 opening fixtures with a -25 goal difference! They have won just one game this season and drawn 5 and lost 11.

Their recent form has seen them struggle, however, their away form has been better than at home! Longford have not lost a home game in their last 3! 2 of the draws ended with goals galore, 2-2 and 3-3. I think that they will be up for this game as many teams are when visiting the current champions and league leaders.

  • Dundalk have won 5 of their last 6 matches against Longford

Although I think Dundalk will win, I do expect that Longford will make it hard for them and I expect a goal from Longford. Then Dundalk should wipe the floor with them. Therefore, I'll be backing over 3.5 goals at 2.00 with Marathonbet. I know this is risky but I think 2.00 offers huge value for a top vs bottom clash. Good luck all.

Bet: Over 3.5 Goals @2.00 with Marathonbet
Result: 4-3 (won)

    Odds plummet to around 1.65 but Longford team total over 0.5 is around 2.50 Should be worth a try.
