Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
This is a derby between the two teams with the best defenses in the entire league. It has become a tradition for these two teams. Shelbourne have conceded only 15 goals in 21 games while Derry – 17 goals. At the same time, Shelbourne are the 2nd lowest-scoring team in the entire league with just 20 goals (less than 1 per match on average.

Match Result Prediction: Draw
Derry City typically beat Shelbourne in the majority of the games but right now, they seem to be in poor form and they have a single win in the last five games. Moreover, they have three defeats in a row in the last three away games. Shelbourne have been quite incredible at home and they almost never concede goals. We expect them to either win with a minimal result or get a draw.
Correct Score Prediction: 0-0 Draw
We think that this will be one of those games. Shelbourne are a very low scoring team and Derry City will hardly concede more than one goal here. If they play their game, they will not even concede. When we compare the Shelbourne vs Derry City line ups, the visitors have the advantage on paper but form is more important right now.
Shelbourne vs Derry City Team Previews
Shelbourne are a very interesting team. They have a terribly weak attack that rarely scores more than one goal and often fails to score at all. But they also have the best defense in the league this year and this has been winning them points since the start of the season. But a strong defense is not enough to achieve something and we do not expect big things from Shelbourne any time soon.
Derry City Preview
Derry City have been incredible since the start of the season and they only suffered a defeat last week for the first time in over a month. The team traditionally has one of the best defenses in the league and this year, this has been their trump card once again. It will be a long battle with Shamrock Rovers but Derry City may finally win a title again.
