Shamrock Rovers will win but UCD will score

Shamrock Rovers have been unstoppable in recent months; they won their last three games, and are unbeaten in their last 12 games, with nine wins and three draws. Shamrock will be going up against a UCD side that managed just one win in 15 league games. Despite being the worst team in the league however, UCD have scored their fair share of goals recently; they found the net in four of their last five games, and have averaged a goal per game in their last seven games. It’s fair to point out that Shamrock won all of their last 11 clashes with UCD; on that note, we believe that Shamrock will win, and UCD will score.

UCD to trail at the break

Shamrock have no losses in their last 12 encounters with UCD, they won all of their last 11 meetings too. It’s important to note that Shamrock tend to score first whenever they go up against UCD; they drew first blood in all of their last 12 meetings with UCD. Because of their tendency to score first, Shamrock usually lead at half-time in clashes between these two; as they had the lead at the midway point in 10 of those 12 meetings. Considering Shamrock have eight wins in their last nine games, while UCD have just one win in 15 games, we should expect Shamrock to score first, and lead at half-time.

Goals galore?

Both teams have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games recently; four of UCD’s last five games went over 2.5, while three of Shamrock’s last five games saw at least four goals scored. Furthermore, we should also mention that five of the last six meetings between these teams went above the 2.5 goal mark; with this in mind, this will likely be a high-scoring game.
