UCC vs Rockmount betting preview with odds an our tips

Rockmount have taken just one point from their last three Ireland. Munster Senior League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Rockmount are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions UCC should prove no easy feat either – Rockmount haven’t won against any Ireland. Munster Senior League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

UCC have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. UCC dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Ireland. Munster Senior League’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

UCC are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about UCC and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in UCC’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Rockmount are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Rockmount took a point away from UCC (1-1 draw).

Notably, UCC’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. UCC have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Ireland. Munster Senior League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Rockmount, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Rockmount getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Rockmount are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), UCC hold the best away record in the Ireland. Munster Senior League (W8 D2 L1). Rockmount’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with UCC’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the UCCns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 UCC win at 15/2 with bet365.
