There’s just the one match being played in the Irish Premier Division but is an important one as UCD take on Bohemians as the betting tips continue at the UCD Bowl on Monday night.

UCD Prediction – Can UCD close gap on teams above them?

The University side sit second from bottom in the Irish Premier Division ahead of this Monday night’s clash with Bohemians.

They therefore occupy the relegation play-off spot in the Irish top flight but recent matches have given UCD reason to be hopeful here.

After a woeful run of 11 straight defeats on the trot, UCD ended their barren spell with a much needed 1-0 home win over Finn Harps.

Monday night’s hosts then followed that up with a valuable point on the road in a 0-0 draw away at Derry City which should give them a boost ahead of tonight’s encounter.

That draw in Derry ended a miserable stretch of 10 losses on the road, but results and form at home have been more encouraging.

The hosts possess an overall home record of 4-1-7 12/15 which includes wins over Finn Harps (twice, 3-0 and 1-0), Waterford and Cork City.

In terms of margin of defeats, UCD have lost by 2 goals or more in just 4 of their 12 home matches to date at the UCD Bowl.

Bohemians Prediction – Can Bohemians extend unbeaten run?

The visitors have enjoyed a solid and mostly consistent Irish Premier Division campaign so far this season as they occupy 3rd place.

Following a 5-match slump which saw Bohemian lose 4 of these 5 matches, the visitors have since made a promising recovery.

Defeats to Cork City, Dundalk (home and away) and Sligo Rovers had threatened to de-rail Bohemians’ challenge for a top three finish.

Indeed, the visitors had gained just 1 point from the possible 15 on offer during this sequence, thanks to a 1-1 draw away at St. Patrick’s.

However, a turnaround in form and results have seen Bohemians grab 3 wins and 2 draws from their subsequent 5 matches.

Wins over Finn Harps, Shamrock Rovers and Waterford along with draws against Derry City and Cork City have got their Europa League ambitions back on track.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches away from home, Bohemians also look in good shape to get something from this fixture.


Key-Facts – UCD v Bohemians

  • UCD have lost by 2 goals or more in just 4 of their 12 home matches to date
  • Bohemians have lost just 1 out of their last 6 away matches
  • Bohemians have won just 3 of their 12 away matches by 2 goals or more


Betting Tips Verdict

UCD will do well to win this match with Bohemians looking firm favourites to take away the points, but the margin of possible victory for the visitors may be a lot closer than many anticipate.
