UC Dublin vs Derry City
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 24 June 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: UCD Bowl.

Derry City might be placed third in the table at the moment but it needs to be noted that they are going through a worrying stretch of results at the moment. They need to figure out a solution if they have to keep a hold of their podium position.

And something that gives their fans hope will be happening this weekend. They are pitted against the worst team in the Irish top flight this weekend – Dublin.

UCD are placed bottom-most in the table and have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the league. Do also note that they have scored the least number of goals and all through the campaign they have managed to register a single win.

In addition, they also have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years.

Taking into account these observations, count on the determined Derry City to post a much-needed three points on the board.
