Derry City vs Cork City Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Derry City vs Cork City is a must-win for both sides for completely different reasons. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
We have the best defensive team in the league against one of the weakest teams overall. But the important factor here is that Derry City have been in terrible form lately and they barely score goals nowadays. So, we expect a tough and competitive match despite the huge difference in class between the two sides. Cork City have been impressive lately and won multiple games with a minimal scoreline.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We expect this game to be a minimal win for either side with 1-0/0-1 or a draw. Due to Derry City's latest performances, we would put our money on the draw here. Cork City have four wins in the last five games, three of which were with 1-0. But they mostly perform well at home and on the road, they continue to lose games. Derry City have been struggling to win at home and most recent matches were draws.
Correct Score Prediction: 0-0 Draw
As mentioned above, Cork City rarely score more than once per game and they will have a hard time scoring against Derry City. The hosts, in turn, have had a terrible run with four games without a win. Nevertheless, when we compare the Derry City vs Cork City line ups, the hosts definitely have the advantage.
Derry City vs Cork City Team Previews
Derry City Preview
Derry City have been incredible since the start of the season and they only suffered a defeat last week for the first time in over a month. The team traditionally has one of the best defenses in the league and this year, this has been their trump card once again. It will be a long battle with Shamrock Rovers but Derry City may finally win a title again.
Cork City Preview
Cork City had a good start and then it all fell apart for a couple of months in which they had no wins. Right now, however, the team won two games in a row and will be motivated for a third one here against Drogheda United. It will be a tough match but we know that Cork City have the abilities to score goals against most defenses.
