UC Dublin vs Finn Harps Prediction & Match Preview

UC Dublin vs Finn Harps
Ireland: Premier Division
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: UCD Bowl (Dublin).

With both the sides struggling to make it out of the relegation zone with their dismal performances on the road and at home, the outcome of their clash is unlikely to bring about a drastic change in their current positions in the league.

The home side, are at the bottom of the table with ten points from twenty-one games while their foes are above them at ninth with fourteen points from twenty-four games.

The hosts succumbed to a 1-0 loss in their previous fixture on home soil against St Patricks and managed just four attempts at goal, half of which were not even on target. The squad have lost by the same scoreline in their last two ties and even failed to register a single shot on target in the match against second-placed Shamrock Rovers.

The visitors have not been faring any better on the road, and have conceded more goals than any other team, in away games, so far. Their last three matches alone saw them concede twelve goals, to which they could respond with not more than five to their name.

UC Dublin vs Finn Harps Prediction

Although the hosts have succumbed to a loss just once against the visitors in their previous meetings, the clash on Friday at the UCD Bowl is likely to swing in favor of the away side at the end of the ninety minutes.

The hosts have failed to find the back of the net in all of their last four games on home soil and were at the receiving end of five goals as well. The squad have also failed to make their presence felt in their attacking third and have managed very few shots on target so far.

The visitors are still without a win in any of their away games so far and have managed just three draws apart from their eight losses.

We can certainly rule out the chances of a high scoring game on Friday, with the away side likely to edge past the home team by not more than a slender margin.
