Match Preview: St. Patrick’s Athletic vs. Dundalk

Richmond Park will host Premier Division action on Monday as St. Patrick’s Athletic welcomes an out-of-form Dundalk.

St. Patrick’s Athletic enters this Premier Division clash seeking a third consecutive victory following two impressive wins in the past week. Stephen Kenny’s side first secured a convincing 3-0 victory over Bray Wanderers in the Leinster Senior Cup, followed by a 2-1 league win against Galway.

Now sitting seventh in the division, St. Pat’s will be confident of another victory against Dundalk, who have been struggling significantly. Dundalk is winless in 18 of their last 20 games since February and currently sits at the bottom of the Premier Division, trailing St. Patrick’s by ten points after 18 matches.

Dundalk’s away form has been particularly poor, with seven defeats in their last eight league fixtures, including a 1-0 loss at Richmond Park in March. St. Patrick’s Athletic also boasts a strong head-to-head record against Dundalk, with five wins and two draws in their last seven meetings in Dublin. Dundalk has managed only two wins in their last 13 encounters since April 2022.

Considering the head-to-head record and recent form, a home win seems likely on Monday. Betting on St. Patrick’s Athletic to claim the points at Richmond Park appears to be a sound choice.
