Derry City's last game in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division against Shamrock Rovers at home ended in a 0-2 loss. The final result is not a surprise. The Candystripes played less with the ball and therefore had less clear cut chances.

Drogheda United's previous game in the competition versus Longford Town ended in an away 4-0 win. Although The Turks countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Drogheda United was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 35th, 51st, 56th and 67th minute.

So far, Derry City plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.50 points per away game on average compared to 0.50 points at home. Although Derry City is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.

Drogheda United has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. The Boynesiders has collected 1.40 points on average per away game, compared to 1.20 at home.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Derry City or Draw.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 75% of Derry City's home and Drogheda United's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 50% of Derry City's home and Drogheda United's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
