Derry City vs Cork City: Top Free Betting Tips

Off the back of consecutive draws with Drpgheada and Shamrock Rovers, Derry City host Cork City in the second round of the FAI Cup on Friday, 26 August. Rebel Army come into this game after an away victory in Division 1 but has been powerless in their prior trips.

Derry City to Win

Derry City are on an undefeated streak of the last six games and registered three victories in that course. On the other hand, Cork City have won three of the last five attempts, together with one defeat and one draw. Rebel Army has won the recent away outings consecutively but they didn’t earn a favourable away record against Derry City. The Candystripes have won all of the last three home H2Hs against Cork City. So following the unbeaten streak and the home advantage, we expect Derry City to register their lead at the end of this game.

Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the last four H2Hs between these teams featured a total of over 2.5 goals and we expect the same case to be repeated in this game. Derry City has added a total of ten goals in the last five hosting games, leaking goals in four of them. Cork City have also found the back of the net nine times in the last five games.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The Candystripes seem prepared to have scoring chances as they have rattled the net five times in the last six attempts. Derry City also succeeded to score in all of the last five H2Hs against Cork City. On the contrary, Rebel Army failed to score in two of the previous three attempts but the team have secured a string of scoring in by hitting the target in all of the away outings. Moreover, Cork City also contributed to BTTS outcomes in three of the last four H2Hs. So we see this game ending with both teams scoring at the same time.
