Half-time result prediction: Shamrock Rovers

For our first prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide are predicting that Shamrock Rovers will go into the dressing room at halftime leading the game. When taking a look at recent form, UCD have ended the first half losing every one of their previous seven games and when looking at the head-to-head record between these two sides, the previous ten matches have all been Shamrock Rovers leading as the first half ends.

Anytime goalscorer prediction: Graham Burke to score anytime

For our second prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide are predicting that Graham Burke will score a goal anytime in the match. Burke is Shamrock Rovers' top scorer so far this season with nine goals and has scored three goals and picked up an assist in his previous three matches against UCD. The forward is taking on average 3.1 shots per 90 minutes in the League of Ireland this season and is averaging a goal every 190 minutes.

Correct score prediction: 4-0 to Shamrock Rovers

For our third and final prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide are going with a comfortable 4-0 victory for the current League of Ireland leaders. No team has scored more goals than Shamrock Rovers' tally of 55 this season whilst no team has conceded more goals than UCD have with 78 shipped in 30 games so far. Shamrock Rovers sit top of the league but not by the points margin they wish they had over second place Derry City so they will be on the lookout for a convincing victory to tell Derry City that they will become League of Ireland champions once again.
