Shelbourne vs Derry City
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Tolka Park (Dublin).
Shelbourne has lost four of the last seven fixtures in the campaign this season. They are not off to a bright start but have been picking up points from here and there.
The host has a slight two-point edge over the visitors in the table. Their previous encounter was on the road against Sligo Rovers and the former lost the match with a 2-1 score on the board.
Shell has only one win from their three home matches so far. It will be a concern for Ian Morris since his team could not use their ground advantage in the game.
In the meantime, Derry City succeeded on the road after two losses in their previous outings. The Candystripes have also lost three of their recent five fixtures.
The 1-2 loss at home against Shamrock Rovers in the previous clash was a blow for the visitors. What they lack in away form, they make it up in their unbeaten experience over the host in their h2h history.
Shelbourne vs Derry City Head-to-head (h2h)

Shelbourne vs Derry City Prediction
Shelbourne’s trouble at home in the league this season will probably back up the Candystripes for an away win in full-time. However, Derry City is not at their best to steer off with a clear win.
Based on their h2h history, the double chance favoring Derry City will probably be the best bet for the punters, along with the safe limit for goals at over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes.
