Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

A tight, highly tactical defensive battle could be in store as St Patrick's and Derry go head-to-head, with almost nothing between the players in terms of who could claim victory. The statistics don't provide any proper confidence in that regard, but they are pointing strongly towards there being 2 goals or fewer in the game. It's a prediction which is available at best priced odds of 1.60 with the bookies, so we've made under 2.5 goals our tip of the day on this one.

Goal Statistics

Derry City's defensive record is very strong, Ruaidhri Higgins's men having conceded 1 or less in 5 consecutive Premier Division outings. An underwhelming PG rating of 1.1 for St Patrick's Athletic makes sense in this context.
