The Irish Premier Division returns this week with four matches slated for this Friday. The fourth of our previews come from Dublin as defending champions Shamrock Rovers take on newly-promoted UCD. On paper, this looks like the ideal opportunity for Shamrock Rovers to get their season off to the perfect start and they will be keen to start their title defence with three important points. UCD earned their place in this season's top division courtesy of winning the relegation playoff against Waterford. A memorable 2-1 victory has given UCD this fantastic opportunity and although they have been given an almighty tough start to the season, its a challenge they will surely relish.

Shamrock Rovers to keep a clean sheet

Shamrock Rovers title win last year was largely down to their fantastic defence. Shamrock conceded a league-low 28 goals last season and will be confident that their defence can guide them towards another title. Against new boys UCD, Shamrock are expected to dominate possession and should be on the front foot throughout the game. Shamrock are priced at 1/4 to win the match outright which is far too short a price. Instead, we like the look of Shamrock to keep a clean sheet. This is priced at 4/6 and we think provides a nice bit of value.

Over 2.5 goals

You have to go all the way back to 2019 for when these sides last met. However, when these sides do meet, there does seem to be a glut of goals. The last five head to head contests between the pair has yielded twenty goals at an average of four per match. In these five games, over 2.5 goals have been met in four of them. We think this match could live up to the past expectations and see plenty of goals. It's bound to be a great game and with both sides heading into this match full of confidence we think this game will see over 2.5 goals.

Shamrock to win both halves

As iterated earlier, Shamrock are the heavy favourites to win this fixture and are priced at 1/4 to do so. We think this price is far too short and instead, there could be some value in backing Shamrock to win both halves at 2/1. Shamrock should have the majority of the ball and should create the majority of the chances. Facing a newly-promoted side they will want to put down a marker to the rest of the league that they once again will be the side to beat this season. We think at 2/1 Shamrock to win both halves could be worth a play.
