We offer a forecast for the Irish Championship match, in which Shelbourne will host Cork City on 5 September. Will the guests be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
The 13-time champion of Ireland in the last game in the Irish Cup, confidently beat Gelway United (5: 2) and reached the 1/8 finals of this prestigious tournament.
Over the nine rounds of the Major League Championship, Ian Morris’ charges were able to record three victories and two world victories, which brought 11 points and the seventh line in the standings. After the defeat to Sligo Rovers, the Reds drew twice – with Derry City (1: 1) and Shamrocks Rovers (0: 0).
Noteworthy is the weak line of attack, which only managed to hit the gates of the opponents six times.
If in the year before last ” Cork City ” won silver in the Premier League championship, then after nine rounds of the current championship the team is in last place in the standings. The Citizens won two victories and once parted with Waterford City (0: 0), for which we made a forecast.
In the last round, the ” rebels ” could not do anything with “Derry City” (1: 3). It should be noted the worst defense line in the league – 15 goals conceded.
Shelbourne won 3 of their last 5 head-to-head matches
8 of Shelbourne’s last 10 home games ended under 2.5 goals
Cork City have scored in only 4 of their last 10 away games
The last face-to-face match ended with Shelburne’s victory (1: 0)
02/14/20 Cork city Shelburne 0: 1
Both opponents started poorly in the tournament, but problems with the Cork City line of defense are visible to the naked eye. Today the hosts will try to interrupt a series of unsuccessful matches, while the guests have only one motivation – to leave the last position.
Most likely, the game will go to the first goal, followed by a hold.
Our prediction is that the total is less than 2.5 goals and we bet on this on the line of BC Vulkan with odds 1.64
