Drogheda United will welcome Derry City to Head in the Game Park for a matchday 14 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 16th April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. Drogheda United has won 3 matches, and Derry City triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 2.29 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.

Drogheda United's last game in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division against Longford Town at home ended in a 4-1 win. The Drogs had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Drogheda United outplayed Longford Town in the second half and scored in the 35th, 44th, 87th and 90+3 minute.

Derry City's recent game against St Patrick's Athl. ended in a home 2-2 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Derry City had good chances in both halves and scored in the 27th and 69th minute.

So far, The Boynesiders plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.86 points per away game on average compared to 1.50 points at home. Although Drogheda United 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 13% home clean sheets.

Derry City has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Derry City has collected 1.86 points on average per away game, compared to 0.63 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Derry City kept a clean sheet in just 29% 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 Drogheda United or Derry City to win.

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 2.13 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 23% of Drogheda United's home and Derry City's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
