This is the semi-final of Irish League cup between Derry City and Waterford. Both teams are prominent club in the Irish Premier League but there are significant differences between them. The host, Derry City are currently ranked 3rd on the league rankings, with a decent performance since the start of the season, while the guest, Waterford are seriously struggling with mixed results at the bottom half of the league rankings.
However, if we look at the previous encounters between both sides, its clearly shows that they have not being too different in terms of results. Since 2010, both teams have played a total of 10 games between them, with Derry City winning 4, while Waterford FC won 5, and 1 draw. Most matches between this two have end in a goal galore, so betting on over 2.5 looks to be a good call for in this match.
Coming to this game, the host Derry City are clearly the better team and favorite to win this tie. However, I don't think the guest would just sit tightly and watch their opponent pounce on them from the first minute to the end. Therefore, this game will also be more be like their previous encounters with much of a balanced game and lots of scoring chances, which i believe they would be converting most of them.
- Total Goals Over 2.5 @ odd 1.73
