Shamrock Rovers will welcome Derry City to Tallaght Stadium for a matchday 29 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 16th July 2021 ended in a Shamrock Rovers 4-2 win. Both sides have met twenty-eight times in the most recent seasons. Shamrock Rovers has won 14 matches, and Derry City triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.36 goals, while both teams score 39% of the time.
Shamrock Rovers's latest fixture against St Patrick's Athl. ended in an away 1-0 win. Rovers was very dangerous in attack, having attempted seven shots on target. Shamrock Rovers was more dominant in the second half and scored in injury time.
Derry City's recent game against Longford Town ended in a home 3-0 win. The Candystripes dominated the game and deserved the win. Derry City had good chances in both halves and scored in the 16th, 29th and 82nd minute.
Since the start of the season, Shamrock Rovers is more dominant at home. They have nine wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Shamrock Rovers 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 21% home clean sheets.
Derry City has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Derry City has collected 1.64 points on average per away game, compared to 1.27 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Derry City kept a clean sheet in just 21% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won five consecutive matches. Rovers is currently unbeaten at home in seven games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.
The Candystripes failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Friday and win against Rovers.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Shamrock Rovers wins on average 2.21 points per home game, compared to 1.64 points per away game for Derry City. My prediction is Shamrock Rovers to win.
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 62% of Shamrock Rovers's home and Derry City's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
