KuPS vs Derry City – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our KuPS Kuopio vs Derry City predictions and tips:

Derry City to Emerge Victorious

We would like to point out that Derry City defeated KuPS by a 2-1 scoreline in the reverse fixture last week. The Irish side has been unstoppable these past few weeks; they are currently on a three-match winning run, and have no losses in their last six games. In contrast, we have not been impressed with KuPS’ recent run of results; as they suffered three losses in their last five matches, with just one win in that stretch. Taking both teams’ recent form into consideration, our first KuPS Kuopio vs Derry City prediction is a win for the visiting team.

One Team to Blank

We’ve already established that Derry City have no losses in their last six matches. Their recent success is due, in part, to their solid defense. Ruaidhri Higgins’ lads kept three clean sheets in their last four matches, allowing just one goal in that stretch. It’s worth mentioning that at least one team failed to score in 12 of KuPS Kuopio’s last 16 games across all competitions, three of Derry City’s last four matches too. For this reason, we believe that one of these teams will keep a clean sheet.

Less Than Three Goals

Given how Derry City allowed just one goal in their last four matches, it’s no surprise that we’re taking the under option for this game. It’s worth mentioning that both teams have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches these past few weeks. While six of Derry City’s last nine matches went below the 2.5 goal mark, eight of KuPS Kuopio’s last 10 games featured less than three goals. That said, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.

On the other hand, Derry City have enjoyed some fine form lately; they are unbeaten in their last six matches, with four wins and two draws. Ruaidhri Higgins’ men have won three matches in a row, and they’ll look to extend that streak to four games today.
