St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Derry City
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Tuesday, 21st May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Richmond Park (Dublin).
St. Patrick’s has been disappointing offensively this season. Disregarding Dublin, dead-last in the league, and unofficially the worst squad in the competition, the former has returned the fewest goals in the whole of the tournament. Even with Dublin in the mix, Athletic has scored just a single extra goal. The team is also winless in the last four match-days.
Derry City is fourth in the table, and four points off a European spot. Considering the third-placed Bohemians are taking on the toppers, Dundalk, Derry will be particular about a win on Tuesday. If things go according to plan, they will find themselves just a single point below a European entry.

Derry was unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 matches, and in their last eight on the road. The team also scored two or more goals in five of their last six away ties.
Goals-wise, Athletic has been marginally better than Dublin, the worst team in the competition, and has been inferior to everyone else. Whereas, Derry has returned excellent numbers. They trail by just a single goal to the second-placed Rovers.
