Derry City – Dundalk

Derry City hosts Dundalk in a match from the 26th round of the Irish Premier Division. Here are our soccer bets today for this clash.


Derry City are currently 3rd in the Premier Division with 43 points won from 25 games played. They have a record of 12 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses, with a goal difference of 42:24. But we should note that they are in a terrific form lately, winning four matches in a row. For the last time they beat Shamrock Rovers with 2-0 away from home.


Dundalk on the other hand are second in the league standings with 50 points won from 25 games played. Their record is 16 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses. Goal difference is 51-19. They have the second best attack and defense in Ireland after the convincing leader Cork City. In their last game Dundalk beat Limerick with 3-0 at home, without facing any serious trouble.


Last season Dundalk won the league, but now they will give up the crown to Cork City, which are the best team in the country for 2017. It’s dissapointing for Dundalk to lose the title, but next year they could try again. It’s a fact that Cork City have been the most consistent team in Ireland this year, losing only one game in 24 games – against Bohemians just two weeks ago.


Despite of this, Derry City and Dundalk remain two of the best teams in Ireland, so this derby between them is going to be very interesting for the fans. Dundalk are in a little bit better position in the standings, but in derbies like this the result is often very unpredictable.
