Tip Reasoning

  • 20 goals have been scored in the last five meetings between these two sides
  • Both teams have scored in Sligo Rovers’ last seven matches
  • UCD are yet to win at home this season

 UCD have struggled on home soil this season

Life hasn’t been easy for UCD following their promotion to the Irish Premier Division. Having gained promotion via the play-offs last season, Andrew Myler’s side have taken just eight points from their opening 17 league matches of the 2022 campaign. UCD are yet to win at home this season and welcome a Sligo Rovers side who they have not beat for eight years to the UCD Bowl on Friday.

Rovers buoyed by last week’s success

Sligo Rovers recorded their first win in six last time out against second-placed Derry City and boss John Russell will be hoping his side can use that victory as a catalyst to push them up the table. It has been a mixed start to the season for Sligo who have been afforded a great opportunity to record back-to-back victories on Friday when they travel to the league’s bottom side UCD.

Expect goals in Dublin

Neither of these sides bring a great level of form into Friday’s game and punters may be wise steering the outright market in this one. Goals are expected at the UCD Bowl on Friday evening with the last five meetings between these two sides averaging four goals per game. Both teams have scored in Sligo Rovers’ last seven matches and with plenty pointing the way of goals on Friday, over 2.5 match goals makes great appeal at a shade of odds on.

Over 2.5 goals will be the main selection for Friday’s game in Dublin. There looks to be every chance Friday’s game goes the same way as the previous five meetings between these two teams, which averaged four goals per game. Sligo Rovers will be buoyed by last week’s success over Derry and look to be the most likely winners here, 3-1 to the visitors will form the correct score prediction for this one.
