Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Shelbourne and Derry City square off against each other at Tolka Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Shelbourne aim to make amends for a 2-1 defeat to Sligo Rovers, and a win over Derry City will see them move a little closer to the Europa League berth. The Reds have registered only one win at home ground so far this term, which is probably the main reason why we are not tempted to put our money on Ian Morris’ troops.
The Candystripes, on the other hand, are eager to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Shamrock Rovers. Derry City did suffer the loss in their last league match, but there were some positivities in their display. When the two teams met in the Irish League Cup in 2018 Derry City crushed Shelbourne 7-3, and seeing that the Candystripes, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
