Drogheda Team News
In previous seasons, Drogheda was a team that fought for entry into one of the European competitions. In the last two years, the situation has changed, as many players have left the club, so Drogheda started this season with a changed team, which was reflected in the results.
After the 16th round, they are in eighth place with five points more than the relegation zone, which is below the club’s reputation. Drogheda has failed to win in seven consecutive matches and has collected just two points. However, when nobody expected, they surprisingly defeated Shamrock Rovers away 2:1 in the last round.
This victory restored the home team’s confidence, and they enter the match with the last-placed UC Dublin motivated to tie two wins in a row for the first time this season.

UC Dublin Team News
UC Dublin is in last place with just six points. Given that we are halfway through the championship, Dublin must start collecting points if they want to get at least a “Playoff” position. Remember that the visitors secured survival last season by winning against Waterford in the playoffs.
In the previous six rounds, UCD recorded five defeats and one draw. The ideal opportunity to get out of the crisis is a visit to Drogheda, which, apart from the victory over Shamrock, did not provide good games this season. Considering the importance of this game, we expect a big fight from both sides from the first minute.

Drogheda vs UC Dublin Prediction
Drogheda is the favorites in this match, but if they don’t repeat the performance against Shamrock, UC Dublin can surprise them. The visitors are the weakest team in the league and they see this game as a last opportunity to join the fight for survival. For this reason, we expect offensive football and a lot of goals from both sides.
