1. Cork City vs Derry City Betting Tips: Form Guide

Cork City Has The Best Home Record In Ireland

With nine victories in just as many games played at Turner’s Cross, Cork City is the strongest home team nationwide. Their flawless track record in front of their fans is the best across all football competitions in Ireland. Over the weekend, they have added three more goals to their already impressive statistics and won to nil. Overall, they only have the 6th best offensive performance in the games played at home. Cork City has actually scored 20 goals on the road, compared to just 18 when they had home pitch advantage.

The reason for why Cork City are on the verge of overtaking Dundalk for the first place is their stellar defensive. They have conceded just one goal so far and they had no problem in defending narrow leads. Something’s got to give though and eventually one of their opponents will be able to score against them. Our Cork City vs Derry City Betting Tips for today still credit the host with the first chance, but we don’t expect them to keep a clean sheet. They’ve got the quality to recover in case the visitors score first.

Derry City’s Defenses Are In Disarray

In 10 games played on the road, Derry City allowed a massive 23 goals. This rendered the 14 goals scored virtually irrelevant and they only managed to win three matches. They are simply unable to defend scoreless draws against better teams and they won’t try it on Monday. Even though Cork City is the best defensive team at home, the visitors will have no choice, but to attack. They can rely on Hale and Patterson with five goals each, as well as McEneff who has scored 10 goals.

It came as no surprise that Derry City allowed a combined six goals in the last two games, both lost. What came as a shock is that they were unable to score in any of them, after defeating Bray Wanderers. Three weeks ago they had some difficult matches against Dundalk and St. Patrick’s Athletic. Granted they lost both games, they scored once in each of those matches, after using three offensive players. Manager Shiels knows that in order to achieve something at Turner’s Cross his team needs to take more chances. Cork City vs Derry City Match Previews credit them with a good chance of scoring, but not winning.

3. Cork City vs Derry City Preview: Recent Meetings

This match isn’t played under a good omen for Derry City fans after their team lost four of the last five matches. The visitors are clearly struggling defensively and recently were also unable to score goals. If we go further back in time though, there are some encouraging signs. The two teams have played a massive 41 games at Turner’s Cross and Cork City only managed to win 19 of them.

Derry City actually have a better track record in front of their fans, with 14 victories, 13 defeats and just as many draws. Overall the series was always balanced and there were plenty of narrow margin victories. In the last six matches, Cork City won on three occasions, twice by 2:1 and three games were scoreless draws. Given the poor state of their backline, it’s unlikely for Derry City to successfully defend the 0:0. Our Cork City vs Derry City Betting Tips are on another narrow margin victory with both teams scoring.

4. Cork City vs Derry City Prediction: Both to Score

This is a match of extraordinary importance for Cork City because it can bring them to the first place. It would be the first time this season when they lead the Irish Premier Division so they are under pressure. When the stakes are this high and you play against an opponent that desperately tries to score, things can get out of hand. Our Cork City vs Derry City Prediction is on the home side to prevail, but not to nil. We believe that the visitors will be able to score once, even though the goal won’t matter in the end.

Cork City 2:1 Derry City is a very common score between these two teams regardless of where the match was played. Over the last couple of years, many games resulted in scoreless draws, but this is an unlikely result tonight. Derry City were unable to defend against mediocre opponents when they had home pitch advantage. On the road, we don’t trust them to cause a major upset against the best defensive home team.

Regardless of the outcome of this game, the winner of Irish Premier Division will be decided in the final rounds. Betting.org will keep providing you with match predictions and betting tips on this championship.
