Friday night at 19:45, two of the weakest defensive teams in the Irish first league meet on UCD Bowl in Dublin: UC Dublin receives Finn Harps in the 6th round of the championship, and the move of the odds suggests an open match and a “GG” bet.
It is hard to nominate a favorite, given that we will see two modest bands of the first league, who have not yet won a match from the new season. UC Dublin lost 4 of the first 5 stages, while UC Dublin has 3 failures and two draws. Well, their schedule was not easy at all, because they both met up to now claiming bands like Shamrock Rovers, Cork City, Dundalk or Bohemians.
UC Dublin comes after a modest performance in the Sligo Rovers duel (0-1) away, while Finn Harps has peered with Cork but lost 3-4. With 9 goals scored in the last three stages, Finn Harps should be an opponent even for the hosts on Friday, who do not notice a brilliant offensive. Last season, Finn Harps led Cork with 1-0 and 2-1, but was equalized every time and paused 2-2. Cork broke out on the scoreboard in minutes 58 and 70, and Cretaro set the final score (’81), hoping for a final match for the hosts. Unlike Finn Harps, the band in Dublin prefers to keep the scores tight and comes after defeats with 0-1, 1-2 and 0-2, and a 1-1 draw with St. Paul. Patricks, one of the top bands of the first Irish league.
In the last 4 direct duels between UC Dublin and Finn Harps we have always witnessed goals on both sides, which inspires bettors at a “GG” selection and Friday night. Last season, the two drew to Dublin, score 1-1, but UC set off with 3-1. At this point, Finn Harps is ranked 9th (penultimate), with 5-11 golaver and the weakest defensive in the league. UC Dublin has a less played match and owns the “red flashlight” with a 2-9 golaver. It is usually profitable to bet against the weakest teams in such championships, where the value differences are not very high in the bottom of the hierarchy.
