Premier Division at Bet Victor

One league that is in full swing is the Republic of Ireland Premier Division and our next preview takes a look ahead to the clash between 5th placed Derry City and bottom club, UCD, as the betting tips continue at The Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Derry City Prediction – Can Derry City extend unbeaten run?

Following a disappointing run of 5 matches without a win in the Premier Division, hosts, Derry City now seem to be on the up.

The hosts have put together a promising looking sequence of 5 league matches without defeat as they prepare for the visit of bottom club, UCD.

Recent wins against Finn Harps 4-0 and a resounding 4-1 win away at Cork City should give Derry a decent boost ahead of this clash.

In addition, Derry City have picked up points in draws with Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians and Dundalk which has kept them in the hunt for a top 3 finish.

They’re now 6 points behind 3rd placed Bohemians, but all three points in Friday night’s clash with UCD would see them cut this deficit in half.

A home record that stands at 5-2-3 17/10 includes just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches and they’ve held the upper hand over UCD in recent times.

Derry have won the last 2 meetings against UCD, winning 2-0 and 3-0 respectively.

UCD Prediction – Can UCD lift themselves off bottom?

Just 1 point separates bottom club, UCD, and second from bottom outfit, Finn Harps ahead of this Friday night clash at Derry City.

The visitors recorded a 1-0 home win over the aforementioned Finn Harps last weekend at their UCD Bowl, but face a tough trip here.

That victory on home turf ended a miserable run of 11 straight defeats for the University side who sit bottom of the Irish top flight as a result.

It now seems that their best chances of survival is their form at home where they’ve recorded all 4 of their league wins to date.

This of course means that UCD are still yet to register an away win this season, as well as possessing a woeful away record overall.

An away record of 0-0-10 3/25 includes UCD failing to score in 7 of these 10 away matches, while the goals have flown in at the other end.

UCD have conceded 25 goals to date on the road and possess the second worst defensive record away from home in the division.


Key-Facts – Derry City v UCD

  • Derry City are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in the Premier Division
  • UCD have lost all 10 of their away matches so far this season
  • Derry have won the last 2 meetings against UCD, winning 2-0 and 3-0 respectively


Betting Tips Verdict

Derry City recorded a convincing 3-0 win over UCD in their last meeting, and the hosts should get off to a quick start tonight too.
