Is the following sentence grammatically correct? I'd derive a goal to hell!

'Derive means to 'get' or 'take' from something else, so it's the wrong verb to use here. Do you mean, "I would make a goal to go to hell?" That would be like selling your soul to the devil.

no. I assume you mean "I'm looking forward to hell"?

If you were refereeing a football match between heaven and hell, and somebody asked you "What would you do in a situation where one of the devils kicked the ball into the net?" Then you could answer: "I'd derive a goal to hell!!" Otherwise the sentence is quite unusual
