League of Ireland began this year on March 8. We are already in EA SPORTS CUP Quarter-finals. The match will be part of Series 22 and will take part on July 26 at Oriel Park Stadium.
The two teams have met before this year in May, when Dundalk managed to beat Bray Wanderers by Patrick Hoban goal after 51 minutes.
Dundalk currently is ranked second, with 21 games played and with 40 points, three points less than St Patrick s Athletic. However, the team is growing from season 2012 , when she finished on 11 place. It’s a tough team to defeat at home, as the statistics show. Last two matches at home ended in victory, and only in a single game in the last five the team lost.
Bray Wanderers in this season are ranked 10th with only 5 games won and 12 lost. Compared to last season, there is no difference on the table, the team had finished the 2012 season ranked still on 10 place. Their last match was played in front of Bohemian FC match which they lost by a score of 3-1. They are not favorites in the match on 26 July, and I do not think they will do much on the ground, Dundalk being the strongest team and also having home field advantage, playing with the public on their side.
Head to head confrontations between the two teams shows as favorite Dundalk , winning two games and making a draw in the last four matches.
