Meath take on Monaghan this Sunday 16th June in a key game for both in group 4 of the All-Ireland. The match takes place in Breffni Park Cavan and will be refereed by Cavan man Joe McQuillan. The match will be live on GAA Go both for Irish viewers and worldwide viewers. Monaghan currently sit on 1 point in 3rd place in group 4 getting a draw last time out versus Louth after a defeat in round 1 to Kerry. The draw last time out ended a 8 game run of defeats for Monaghan but they are still without a win since January 31st against Dublin in the league. Meath are winless in the championship also with a heavy 16 point defeat to Dublin in the Leinster championship and 10 point and 15 point defeats to Louth and Kerry respectively in the group phase to this point. Both sides are low on confidence at the moment and both need a win not only to save their season but improve morale and boost confidence. Meath need a win to qualify to the preliminary quarter final of the ‘All Ireland’ while a win or draw is good enough for Monaghan, but I am sure they will focus on getting the win to end their winless run.

🏆 Meath vs Monaghan All Ireland Championship Prediction

The match between Meath and Monaghan will determine who gets the 3rd place spot in group 4 and a spot in a preliminary quarter final against a 2nd place side from one of the other groups. This shows the flaws in the layout of the championship because both these sides have not justified a spot in the knockout stages of the All Ireland championships with poor performances by both. Meath have suffered 3 heavy defeats in the championship to this point, a 16 point defeat to Dublin, a 10 point defeat to Louth and a 15 point defeat by Kerry. Anytime they have had a setback in a game they have folded and shown their low confidence. Monaghan are winless in the championship also. They were shocked by Cavan in the Ulster preliminary quarter final by 6 points. In the All Ireland group phase they lost by 10 versus Kerry and drew with Louth. In their last 9 games they have drawn 1 and lost 8. These two teams are so low on confidence it is hard to see who will have the confidence to get over the line. Monaghan managed a draw versus Louth after being 4 points down with 15 minutes to go so maybe they can take some positives from that. After conceding 3 goals in a 13 minute spell in their game versus Louth, Meath manager Colm O’Rourke said “But once they got the first goal the doubts crept into our team and they very much built on that.” This shows Meath’s mentality at the moment as setbacks that they get in matches result in more setbacks. If Monaghan can dent an early blow to Meath then Meath could fold and Monaghan will get the victory.

🔎 Meath vs Monaghan - Performance Analysis

The key statistic that should be looked at for both these sides are goals conceded. Meath have been very open at the back as manager Colm O’Rourke wants to play an attacking side and they need to strengthen their defence and defend in numbers which is against his style. In the championship to this point Meath conceded 3 goals versus Dublin, 3 versus Louth and 2 versus Kerry. Monaghan have struggled to keep the goals out of their own net in the 3 championship games. They conceded 2 last time out versus Louth and 3 in the Ulster preliminary quarter final versus Cavan. Both sides need to be stronger at the back if they are to win this one.

💯 Meath vs Monaghan All Ireland Championship Odds

The odds for this one amongst the bookmakers sites favour Monaghan. Monaghan are coming into this one at odds of 1.40 whereas Meath are coming in at odds of 3.50. Monaghan are deemed the slight favourites for this one with both sides without a win in the championship to this point. Monaghan are the stronger side on paper but will be low on confidence at the moment. Meath are also very low on confidence after multiple heavy defeats.

✔️ Meath vs Monaghan Betting Tips

Meath and Monaghan is an intriguing prospect, and here are some tips if you are unsure how the game will transpire. If you have any free bets, here are some tips you can combine them with:

Tip 1: Monaghan to Win

Monaghan’s last victory game during round 1 of the Allianz National League all the way back on January 31st against All Ireland champions Dublin. Meath’s last victory in round 4 of the Allianz National League back on the 25th February against Kildare. In their last 9 games Monaghan have lost 8 with a draw last time out versus Louth. Meath have lost 5 of their last 6 games with a draw against Cavan preceding those 5 straight losses. Meath are starting games reasonably well but then when they suffer a setback like the goals against Louth multiple points in a row by Kerry their performances greatly diminish. Monaghan showed resilience to come from 4 points down with 15 minutes to go versus Louth and they even led the game by a point heading into stoppage time. Monaghan showed mental toughness to get back into the game versus Louth, the opposite to what Meath did in their game versus Louth, conceding 3 goals in 13 minutes. I am predicting Monaghan to win this one as a result of this and this can be got at decent odds of 1.40 with BoyleSports.

Tip 2: Monaghan Handicap -3

Meath have suffered heavy defeats so far in the championship. They were beaten by 16 points to Dublin in the Leinster Quarter final and have not fared much better in the All Ireland group phase to this point. They were beaten by 10 points to Louth conceding 3-10 and were beaten by 15 points by Kerry conceding 2-18. Monaghan have been winless in the championship but have fared slightly better with regards to the margin of their defeats. They were beaten by 6 against Cavan in the Ulster preliminary quarter final and in the All Ireland group phase they were beaten comfortably by Kerry losing by 10 but did manage a draw last time out versus Louth. Monaghan do have the experience of tense and crucial championship games like this one will be, with Monaghan getting to the All Ireland semi final last year losing to eventual All Ireland champions Dublin on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-13. This will be a tense game for both with a defeat for either ending their championship season but Meath have shown this campaign when they go behind they struggle to get back into the game due to their open style of play so I am tipping Monaghan with some points to spare and a handicap of -3 is being offered by BoyleSports at a price of 2.00.

Tip 3 Conor McManus to score a goal anytime

Meath have been poor defensively this season conceding 8 goals in 3 championship games, 3 against Dublin, 2 against Kerry and 3 versus Louth. They themselves have yet to put the ball in the back of the net in the championship so they are conceding goals and not scoring them, a bad combination. Monaghan scored 2 goals last time out versus Louth and 1 in the Ulster preliminary quarter final versus Cavan. It is hard to see Meath not conceding a goal this weekend just because of the nature in which they try and play under O’Rourke, open and on the front foot so I am tipping Monaghan to score a goal this weekend and who better to get that goal than Monaghan legend Conor McManus. McManus came off the bench versus Louth and his 0-2 helped to inspire their comeback draw. This game is crucial for Monaghan so he must start and I think he will inspire them again this time to victory by hitting the back of the net. A Conor McManus goal anytime is priced at 3.10 with BoyleSports.
