Drogheda United vs Derry City: Top Free Betting Tips

Drogheda United will be eager to continue the home unbeaten sequence when they take on Derry City on Friday, 19 August. The Red and White Army are also on an undefeated streak.


Drogheda United have earned a mix of results in the recent games with two draws, two wins and one defeat. On the other hand, Derry City are yet to lose in the last five attempts and registered three victories in that course. Both teams have also recorded three victories in the last five home and away outings respectively. So we expect equal competition here and predict a draw as an end result, the same as the three of the last five H2Hs.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Drogs have shown discipline in recent games and scored with an average of two goals per game in the last five attempts. On the contrary, Derry City have also found the back of the net eight times in the previous five visits, scoring at least twice in three of them. Furthermore, the teams didn’t secure more than one clean sheet in their recent home and away games respectively. So a high-scoring total will be our next prediction for this game.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Drogheda United are expected to have many opportunities at their home stadium as they have rattled the net in four of the last five hosting games. In opposition, the Red and White Army have also been consistent in this regard and missed the target only once in the previous six away outings. Adding more, four of the last five H2Hs at the home of the Drogs featured BTTS outcomes. Hence, we believe to see both teams scoring at the same time in this game.
