United to win
Things have not gone too well for Dundee FC the past couple of months; they are winless in their last eight games in all competitions, with two draws and six losses. It’s important to mention that two of Dundee’s last three wins came in the Scottish Cup; they’ve actually won just one of their last 17 league games. Additionally, Dundee FC have more losses than wins and draws combined. Dundee United have been relatively better, they won three of their last nine games, losing just twice; also, Dundee United have no losses in their last five encounters with Dundee FC. As a matter of fact, Dundee FC have not beaten Dundee United at this stadium in over a decade; and for this reason, we’re making the prediction that Dundee United will win.
Someone will fail to score
We’ve mentioned that Dundee United have no losses in their last five clashes with Dundee FC; we would also like to point out that they’ve kept their fair share of clean sheets in those games. Dundee FC failed to score in three of their last four meetings with Dundee United; they scored just one goal in those four encounters. Furthermore, Dundee FC have been inconsistent when it comes to finding the net; as they blanked in four of their last seven games. With this in mind, we believe that at least one of these teams will keep a clean sheet.
Dundee United to open the scoring
Our final pick for this match will be on the first team to score market. Dundee United have not had too much difficulty scoring goals; they’ve done so in eight of their last nine games. It’s fair to point out that Dundee United scored the first goal in six of those nine games. In the same vein, Dundee United tend to score first whenever they meet their local rivals; they drew first blood in four of their last five clashes. On that note, we believe that Dundee United will bag the first goal.
