Both teams to score prediction: Yes

For the first prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide believe that both sides in this top-of-the-table clash will find the back of the net. No team in the League of Ireland has scored more league goals than Shamrock Rovers this season while only Shamrock and St. Patrick's have hit the back of the net more than Derry City. Two of the previous three games Derry City have played in have seen both sides score and we expect that run to continue into this game.

For our second prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with Shamrock Rovers to take all three points or walk away from this encounter with a draw. Shamrock Rovers have won the two previous encounters against Derry City but with how tight the table is, we expect the atmosphere inside the stadium to try and play its part in support of Derry City. It will be a close game with all to play for.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Shamrock Rovers

For our third and final prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with Shamrock Rovers to walk away from this match with all three points thanks to a tightly contested 2-1 win. Both of these sides have two of the best attacks in the League of Ireland but on the other hand, also have the best defences in the league.
