Dundalk to hold a HT lead

On the one hand, we have a UCD side that won just one of their last 20 games; they suffered 13 losses in that stretch, with six draws. On the other hand, we have a Dundalk team that did not lose any of their last 10 games; they have eight wins in that 10 game stretch, with two draws. Furthermore, Dundalk have no losses in their last 17 encounters with University College Dublin; they won 16 of those games, with one draw. It's also fair to point out that Dundalk drew first blood in all of the last five meetings between these teams; they were leading at half-time in all of those games. All things considered, Dundalk should have the lead at the midway point of this match.

Expecting goals

UCD have had by far the worst defence in the Premier Division this season; they've allowed 41 goals in 20 league games, that's just over 2 goals per game. In the same vein, Dundalk have scored a lot of goals this season, especially at home; they bagged 20 goals in 10 home games, averaging exactly two goals per game. We should also mention that meetings between Dundalk and UCD have mostly been on the high-scoring side; as six of their last seven clashes went above the 2.5 goal margin. With this in mind, we should expect some goals here.

Can Dundalk put struggling UCD to the sword?

These two sides are in wildly different places in the league right now. Dundalk are riding the wave of good form and pushing for the title whilst UCD are sitting rock bottom. For very different reasons, the three points would be hugely valuable to both teams.

Dundalk have been one of the best teams in Ireland this season; they are second on the table, having lost just twice in 20 league games. It's worth mentioning that Dundalk have no losses in their last 10 matches across all competitions; they'll look to extend that unbeaten run to 11 games today.

Dundalk Predicted lineup – Shepperd, Macari, Connolly, Boyle, Leahy, Doyle, Sloggett, Bradley, Benson, Kelly, Hoban

University College Dublin have not enjoyed their best Premier Division campaign so far; they are last on the league table, with just one win in 20 games. Additionally, UCD are without a win in their last five games, with a draw and four losses; will they be able to upset an in-form Dundalk side?

UCD Predicted lineup – Moore, Gallagher, Yoro, Todd, Osam, Dignam, Higgins, Keane, Duffy, Brennan, Caffrey
