St. Patricks vs Derry City Prediction & Betting tips
After about five months the ball rolls again in Ireland! On the second day after the restart, St. Patrick’s receives the Derry City team. In the past season, the clubs ended up being table neighbors. Currently, the respective skill level can again be located at a similar level.
The hosts have so far had two wins and one defeat and one draw, while the guests have only won one of their four games (1-1-3). Her restart also failed with a disappointing defeat against Sligo Rover. A team that had previously lost all four league games of the season.
A parallel of the teams of the upcoming duel is the harmless storm, which is accompanied by a solid defense. Against this background, the tip for a maximum of two goals until the final whistle in Richmond Park is selected for the match between St. Patrick’s and Derry City.
More preliminary reports on current games in many leagues in Europe and beyond are available in the extensive section of the international football tips on the betting basis.
The kickers from the suburbs of Dublin finished fifth in the past two seasons. A respectable placement at first glance, but given the ten-member Premier Division, it was no more than a midfield place.
The eight-time champion, last time in 2013, started again not very steadily before the season break. Two of the first four games were lost, although they were the better team in both games against Waterford and Shelbourne. However, the offensive left too many opportunities unused.
Coach Stephen O’Donnell took office last August. It is the first coaching job for the just 34-year-old. His record after twelve games is average with a win rate of almost 42 percent. It is almost identical to the yield of his predecessor Harry Kenny, who had looked after the team for over 35 competitive games for almost a year.
Given the described results, it seems questionable whether the novice can improve the team due to his lack of experience.
The fact that the games of the Saints are again very low in goals is not a new pattern: Already in the past season, the club had an average of 1.8 goals for the final billing, which was clearly the lowest value of all starters in the Irish House of Lords.
Also at the start of the resumption of play on Friday night against Dundalk only two goals were scored. The teams separated with 1: 1. The point gain can be seen as a positive sign for St. Patrick’s, as it was against reigning champions of the country, who had also won three times without conceding in this pairing before.
Derry City lost its most efficient scorer and top scorer in the Premier Division after last season with Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe. David Parkhouse was the second-strongest and fourth-best goal-getter in a league-wide comparison. No wonder that the offensive with the candystripes as with the opponent so far disappointed.
You scored four goals in as many league games. The fact that it was enough to win against Bohemians and draw against Finn Harp was due to a stable defensive. To date, they have only allowed one goal to be conquered. Only the coming opponent and the Bohemians team just mentioned undercut this value.
In view of the weak start of the team by coach Declan Devine and a series of weak attacks as described, which recently did not score a single direct goal against the penultimate Sligo Rover, the odds for a home win including cashback are included in the game between St. Patricks and Derry City Draws also interesting.
