Derry City will welcome Longford Town to The Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium for a matchday 10 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 20th March 2021 ended in a Longford Town 2-0 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Derry City has won 3 matches, and Longford Town triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.14 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.

Derry City's last game in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division against Finn Harps at home ended in a 1-2 loss. The Candystripes had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch. Derry City scored before halftime in the 18th minute.

Longford Town's recent game against Dundalk ended in a home 2-2 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Longford Town put the pressure early on and scored in the 6th and 15th minute.

So far, Derry City plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.00 points per away game on average compared to 0.67 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.

Longford Town has picked up 1 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Longford Town wins 0.38 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Longford Town kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.

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 2.58 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 58% of Derry City's home and Longford Town's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
