Dundee United Prediction – Can Dundee United extend lead at top?

The runaway Scottish Championship league leaders already hold a commanding 13-point lead at the top of the Scottish second tier but all three points against their local rivals, Dundee, would see Dundee United move 16 points clear at the top of the division.

Having also won their last 9 league matches on the trot which includes a 2-0 win away at Dundee back in early November, Friday night’s hosts, United, look set to continue this impressive winning streak under manager, Robbie Neilson, as they continue to march towards promotion back up to the Premiership.

Dundee United have produced excellent form at Tannadice this season too as their perfect home record of 9-0-0 30/5 indicates, and indeed, the hosts have won 16 of their last 17 matches at home in the Championship, so they won’t be short of confidence ahead of this local derby.

In addition, Dundee United have won 3 of the last 4 encounters against Dundee and most recently they’ve recorded back-to-back wins against their neighbours in 2-0 and 6-2 wins respectively.

Dundee Prediction – Can Dundee consolidate top four spot?

Although it’s the shortest distance between two football clubs in the whole of Britain, Dundee will make the 0.2 mile trip to Tannadice in fairly confident mood as they’ve posted recent back-to-back wins against Dunfermline Athletic 4-3 and a 1-0 win against Partick Thistle.

However, both of these clubs sit outside of the top four or bottom half of the Championship, with the latter club, Partick Thistle, sitting second from bottom in the Scottish second tier, while beforehand, Dundee had failed to win any of their earlier 4 matches in the Championship.

3 defeats within this 4-match period saw Dundee lose 2-0 at home to Dundee United, 1-0 against Inverness CT and a 2-1 loss to Queen of the South, and having lost 3 of their last 4 meetings against neighbours, United, Friday night’s visitors, Dundee, may just be a little on the back foot here.

Results away from home have been inconsistent throughout this season as their away record of 3-3-3 12/13 indicates, but Dundee have lost just once in their last 6 matches on their travels in the Championship and may fancy their chances of getting something out of this upcoming local derby.


Key-Facts – Dundee Utd vs Dundee

  • Dundee United have won 9 home matches on the trot this season
  • Dundee have lost just once in their last 6 matches on their travels
  • Dundee United have won the last two meetings against Dundee, 2-0 & 6-2


Betting Tips Verdict

Dundee United’s winning momentum should see them get over the line in this most local of derbies.
