Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Dundalk v Bohemian FC are shown on this page (plus the best game odds).
Dundalk will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 2-1 Premier Division defeat in their last game at the hands of Shamrock Rovers.
The only player to score from Dundalk was Patrick Hoban (89'). Danny Mandroiu (35') and Dylan Watts (77') scored for Shamrock Rovers.
Dundalk have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve managed to rack up 10 during that time while also conceding a total of 14. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being continued on here.
Analysis of their past results shows that Dundalk:
- have not registered a win against Bohemian FC in their previous 3 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 5 matches in the league. That's never good.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against St. Patrick's Athletic in Premier Division competition, Bohemian FC and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Ronan Coughlan (62') scored for St. Patrick's Athletic.
Looking at their form, and Bohemian FC have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals in total. At the back, The Bohs can certainly do much better.
Going into this contest, Bohemian FC are winless against Dundalk when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league matches. Not good at all.

Team News: Dundalk
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Dundalk manager Shane Keegan to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Brian Gartland (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out. Sonni Nattestad cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Bohemian FC
Due to a fully healthy squad to pick from, Bohemian FC boss Keith Long has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game.
We’re thinking that Bohemian FC are certainly able to break down this Dundalk side, although that is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a 2-1 winning score for Dundalk by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Definitely a tough call.
