UCD vs Cork City Predictions and Top Betting Tips
UCD vs Cork City is a clash between the two weakest teams in the league. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
We have the two teams that are going to ger relegated this season and they have nothing to play for. Yes, Cork City have a mathematical chance to save themselves but they have to win every single game until the end and hope that their competitors lose all four. These two teams usually have low scorelines between them but this time, they can play free of pressure.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
UCD may be the weakest team in the league by a mile but they rarely lose to Cork City. The visitors have not won at this stadium in three consecutive matches. With 26 defeats in 33 games, this match is the best and only chance for a good result until the end of the season for UCD. We think that they may not lose it.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Most of the matches between these two teams in recent years did not have goals on both ends. And UCD have the weakest attack in the league, scoring less than 0.5 goals per game. But they usually play well against Cork at home and we expect to see some action before they get relegated. When we compare the UCD vs Cork City line ups, we think that the visitors are definitely better than the hosts.
UCD vs Cork City Team Previews
UCD have three more games in the elite and then it is back to the 2nd division. The team gets relegated every time they reach the Premier Division but this time, it was worse than every other time. They have just 2 wins in 33 games and a goal difference of 16:86. This is far below the necessary level even of this weak league.
Cork City Preview
Cork City had enough opportunities to save themselves from relegation but it is about to be over for them too. The team has a mathematical chance for survival but if it happens, it would be the luckiest case we have ever seen. There were positive moments this year but they will have to fight for their place in the elite again next year.
