Malahide United vs Waterford: Top Free Betting Tips

Following an away victory, Malahide United take on Waterford in the second round of the FAI Cup on Saturday, 27 August. The Blues are on an undefeated streak coming into this game and will be looking to spring a surprise on Malahide.

Waterford to Win

Malahide United have been unable to get consistency in the recent games and has lost three of the previous five attempts. The team has also conceded three defeats in the last five hosting games. On the other hand, Waterford are yet to lose in the recent four games and registered three victories in that course. The Blues also produced identical results in the recent away outings. In our opinion, Waterford will be able to continue their streak with a victory in this game.

Over 2.5 Goals

Malahide United come into this game after scoring two goals in the last game and has added a total of eight goals in the previous four home attempts. However, they have also leaked at least twice in three of them. On the contrary, Waterford has also managed an average of two goals per game in the last five away games. Given this, we see this game ending with a high-scoring total.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The hosts seem prepared in their offensive approach as they have scored in five of the last six duels. But Malahide United have also conceded goals in four of the last five hosting games. In opposition, Waterford also had a string of scoring by finding the net in the consecutive five games before the last attempt, keeping only one clean sheet in the last five. Hence, a BTTS outcome will be our next prediction for this game.
