UCD vs Shelbourne Predictions

  • Shelbourne have lost five of their last six away matches
  • UC Dublin won last time out, 2-0 away at Sligo Rovers
  • UC Dublin are unbeaten in their last five home matches against Shelbourne

UC Dublin fancied to record first home win

UC Dublin ended a seven-match winless run with a 2-0 victory away at Sligo Rovers last Sunday. The UCD camp must be optimistic about their chances of recording their first home win of the season against a Shelbourne side, in whom they have a decent record against in recent times. UC Dublin are unbeaten in their last five home matches against Shelbourne – Shelbourne last tasted success on this ground in 2017. The hosts may be slightly overpriced here and are fancied to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Shelbourne have struggled on their travels lately

Shelbourne won last time out, against second-bottom Finn Harps, but Damien Duff’s side have struggled on the road lately and could have done without Friday’s hosts receiving a confidence boost last week. Shelbourne have lost five of their last six matches on the road and have only scored once in their last three outings away from home. Whilst in no immediate danger of the drop, should Damien Duff’s side hold any hopes of threatening the European spots on offer in the Irish topflight, then their away for will need to drastically improve.

At around the 5/1 mark I am willing to take a chance on the hosts here, who will be buoyed by last weekend’s success – UC Dublin to Win in the outright market will be the main selection for Friday’s game at the UCD Bowl. The correct score prediction for Friday’s game will be a 2-1 home win – UC Dublin have kept two home clean sheets all season.
