If you take a look at the upcoming football Friday, you find that the calendar fills up with a bit more content. For example, the Russian Premier League, the Romanian League 1 or even the Danish Super League will start their new seasons. The Irish Premier Division, in which the teams are almost on the home stretch, has made significant progress. Depending on the teams are still eleven to 15 games to complete before the new Irish champion is chosen, which will probably be the same old and Dundalk this season.
Derry City vs UC Dublin Football Betting Prediction
On Friday there will be the catch-up game of the 19th match day between Derry City and UC Dublin. The guests from the capital are at the bottom of the table and the danger is currently great that it goes back down after a year in the second highest Irish league. The hosts from Derry, however, squint in third place, which would mean the participation in qualifying for the Europa League in the coming year. On the way there, a win on Friday is mandatory – and the host had recently a run. But especially because of a statistic goes in the match between Derry City and UC Dublin, the prediction clearly a tip for home win.
Derry City – Statistics & Current Form
Even sovereign championship leader Dundalk failed to beat Derry City last weekend. At the last minute, more precisely in the fifth minute of injury time, Derry City scored in the home game against the reigning champions to 2: 2 and could draw the goal in minute 90 yet still. Once again, the strike duo of David Parkhouse and junior Ogedi-Uzokwe struck, bringing the pair to seven goals each and finishing second in the Premier Division scorers. For Derry City, the draw against champions Dundalk was the sixth undefeated competitive game in a row – three wins. In fact, Derry City conceded only one defeat in the last ten competitive games, even if the club in the multiplicity of cases – namely six times – shared the points.
The Premier Division’s table is currently only in fifth place, but with a victory in the catch-up on Friday Derry City could move up to three counters and the Bohemians in third place. In the home Brandywell Stadium the past performances were also quite satisfactory. Of ten home games, five were won and only three lost. When Derry City was last on the pitch, there were also some goals. In the last five league games with involvement of the club fell four times more than three hits. Overall fell in the previous games of Derry City on average 2.6 goals, which puts the team in third place in the league comparison. With 36 specially scored hits, Derry City is also the second best attack of all ten clubs, despite sometimes two games less. However, the team also conceded on average a little more than one goal per league match.
Also interesting: In seven of the previous ten home games of Derry City in league play could never meet both teams. Otherwise applies in home games of Candystripes: If Derry City does not hit, then loses the team. So far, that was the case for all three home defeats, where the club scored no goal. But against the next opponent not only hits, but above all three points are planned. The direct comparison also speaks for the hosts. However, as in the match between Derry City and UC Dublin the odds for a home win are too low, one should pay attention to other bets.
Expected lineup of Derry City:
↳ Cherrie; Toal, Coll, Gilchrist; Harkin, Sloggett, McNamee, McDonagh, McCauley; Parkhouse, Ogedi-Uzokwe

UC Dublin – Statistics & Current Form
Hope is back at the bottom of the Premier Division. After twelve competitive defeats in a row, UC Dublin won last Friday’s duel against the co-climber and penultimate Finn Harps at home with 1-0. Nine of these twelve bankruptcies had plugged the UC Dublin to zero. Although the UCD remains despite the threesome in last place and the direct relegation is in view of ten points behind eighth place and a game more still in the very far distance, however, the Finn Harps are on the relegation relegation place nine only one counter in front of the competitor. And: The UC Dublin has three games less than the co-climbers. The aim of the club from the Irish capital is to keep the relegation in the Premier Division. However, UC Dublin has one thing to do first and foremost: the away weakness.
UC Dublin have lost all of their ten away games in league play. In addition, the club scored only three goals in these ten games, but cashed on the opponent’s place already 25 goals. Three of the ten away games came with only one goal difference, the other seven clear. In the final away game at Sligo Rovers, UC Dublin lost 1-5. Compared to the home-goal ratio of 12:15, the away goal balance is the purest disaster. Especially the away appearances of UC Dublin have so far ensured that in the games of the capitals so far on average 2.5 hits have been achieved – fourth highest value of the league. However, only in one of the last seven league games fell more than two goals. Five of the last six games involving UC Dublin in the Premier Division ended 1-0 – but four times for the opponent. The club’s top scorer is center-forward Yousef Mahdy, who has scored four goals but has not scored in his last ten league appearances.
Despite the tense situation in the league, the club was still the time to contest on Wednesday a friendly match against Portsmouth FC from the English League One. Understandably not at full strength, the UC Dublin went down at 0:11 (!). On Friday, a point would be a great success for the capital club. But there are no arguments to justify the odds of outright double-digit odds in the UC Dublin game at Derry City.
Expected lineup of UC Dublin:
↳ Kearns; Tobin, Farrell, Boore, Dignam; O’Farrell, McEvoy, Doyle; McClelland, Mahdy, Bishop
Last Games from UC Dublin:
