Galway United vs UCD: Top Free Betting Tips

Galway United and UC Dublin are set to face each other in the second round of the FAI Cup on Friday, 26 August. Both teams come into this game after conceding a defeat in their respective last league games.

Galway United to Win

Galway United have lost the last two games in a row but they have been involved in the undefeated streak before that. The Tribesmen also lost only one in the last five home attempts and registered two victories in that duration. On the contrary, UC Dublin has got a mix of results with two wins, two draws and one defeat in the recent five games. But the Students have lost three of the previous five away games. Moreover, Galway United are also undefeated in the last five home H2Hs against Dublin, winning three of them. Hence, the Tribesmen are our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Tribesmen have secured a total of 14 goals in the last five attempts and scored at least twice in three of them. On the other hand, UC Dublin has also found the back of the net seven times in the last four outings while leaking goals in the last three games consecutively. Furthermore, four of the last five H2Hs between these teams ended with over 2.5 goals. So a high-scoring total will be our next prediction for this game.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Despite the last defeats, Galway United have managed a momentum of finding the back of the net in all of the last five games. The Students have also not missed the target in any of the last four games. Moreover, the teams didn’t keep more than one clean sheet in that courses. Both sides also contributed to BTTS outcomes in the last three H2Hs at the home of Galway United. Given this, we can expect this game to feature a BTTS pattern again in this meeting.
