Derry City vs Shelbourne: Top Free Betting Tips

After ending Premier Division with successive winless games, Derry City are set to play the final of the FAI Cup against Shelbourne at Aviva Stadium on Sunday, 13 November. The Real Reds have also got the back of a defeat in the concluding game of the domestic league.

Match Result Prediction: Derry City to Win

Derry City faced consecutive two defeats before this game but the team had a brilliant undefeated streak and won most of them. However, Shelbourne has registered only two victories in the last nine games. The Candy Stripes have also been impressive in the H2Hs against Shelbourne and won three of the previous five meetings, losing only once. None of the teams will have a home advantage in this game but Derry City stands with more potential to earn the victory in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Derry City lagged in some of the recent outings offensively but they have rattled the net in all of the previous five H2H meetings against Shelbourne. On the other hand, Shelbourne were also unable to score in the last game but they had a long scoring string before that. Two of the last three H2Hs of these teams have also witnessed both teams scoring at the same time. So we will be hoping for the same kind of pattern in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Derry City

Both teams are expected to hit the target in this game but Shelbourne might be in trouble creating many chances. The Real Reds have scored more than once in only one of the previous six away outings. On the other hand, Derry City has rattled the net five times in the previous two FAI Cup outings, playing against Treaty United and Shamrock Rovers. Moreover, the Candystripes have not allowed more than once in any of the duels since the mid of July but Shelbourne conceded four goals in the last meeting away from home. So we predict a 2-1 scoreline as a victory for Derry City for this duel.
