    Rapid should be too strong for Dundalk tomorrow but they were very poor against Molde last week.

    Rapid caused Arsenal a lot of problems in their first game but from the highlights I saw of their game against Molde they were poor enough.

    Having said that the chances Dundalk conceded to the second worst attack in the League of Ireland on Sunday with a close to first choice 11 can and will be put away by Rapid if Dundalk don’t get their act together defensively

    Dundalk will have their work cut out for them in every game this campaign, like us in 2011, but you'd think Rapid home and away would be the best chance of getting something. It's not like 2016 when you almost expected Dundalk to get something from each game, or at least get close.

    There was more positiveness about that Rovers group than Dundalk currently. There is really a feeling of deligted to be there at all. 2016 we'd a chance of progressing right up to the last game and there was more expectation. Rovers, well apart from nipping ahead of Spurs was more like this EL campaign for Dundalk than 2016. POAK and Kazan on paper points could have been taken but that group ended a bit on its head.

    That's true about the positivity, but they were also all new to that level, hence why MON brought in the likes of Ricketts and Paterson. This squad at least have the likes of Gartland and Gannon who know what it's about, so I think that will serve yous well.

    It's probably worth remembering there's a Pats fan here saying Dundalk were very poor against Pat's last week.

    Everything's relative I think!

    A howler from the opposition goalie is nice for a change.

    And from the linesman. Clearly offside. But Dundalk will take it!

    That's a great strike but have to question the keeper. After a very good start Dundalk need to settle again now.

    Nice of McCarey to even up the howlers. Feels more like a normal LOI European tie now.

    I though Leahy could have done better with the clearance too. He made two in a row where he didn't get enough distance on them and invited pressure straight back.

    Two very shaky defences (and keepers) to be honest. Dundalk getting into a fair bit of trouble losing possession at the back, but getting more chances at the other end than in the other two games. More goals to come in this I think.

    This is great tea time entertainment! More goals and a red card or two looks a racing certainty.

    Why wasn't Duffy following in on his shot? He just stood there while Rapid were farting about. Might at least have pressured them into a worse clearance.

    Interesting to see McCarey going long more often than not with his goal kicks, whereas Rogers last week was passing to a player inside the six yard box. Wonder if that's to do with the change of keeper, or is it a deliberate tactical change?

    Anyways, this is starting to get more like the Molde game tbh, which is worrying.

    Similarities to the previous games, the better teams seem to figure Dundalk out after 35 minutes or so.

    Agree re Leahy and the two poor clearances in lead up to the equaliser. He’s been excellent otherwise though.

    Rapid are shocking defensively so there’s likely to be more chances for Dundalk if the can raise their game again. Looks like there’s bound to be a red card too, I think two centre back and a centre mid booked each?
