Cork City vs Sligo Rovers Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Cork City vs Sligo Rovers will be an interesting match that is important for both sides. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This will be a difficult game and we have two of the three weakest teams in the league this season. Cork City have to win this game at all costs if they want to increase their chances of success this season. Sligo Rovers simply have to win some points to seal their spot in the league for another season. Most importantly, two of the three games between these teams this year ended with over 2.5 goals and we saw some good scorelines.

Match Result Prediction: Cork City to Win

Neither of these teams has won on the road this season in the h2h games. They are both very weak this year and their away performances have been a huge problem. We think that Cork City will be more desperate for the three points and win once again at home against Sligo Rovers. The visitors have not won a game away in eight consecutive matches.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Cork City

We think that this game will be close and competitive and there is a good chance that both sides will score goals. However, we see a better chance for Cork City for the three points in this game. When we compare the Cork City vs Sligo Rovers line ups, we think that both sides have huge problems in defense and are fairly equal in strength right now.

Cork City vs Sligo Rovers Team Previews

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. They have a few chances left to win games and potentially save themselves from relegation. It will be a tough match but we know that Cork City have the ability to score goals against most defenses.

Sligo Rovers Preview

Sligo Rovers have not had a great time this season although they had their moments. The team recently suffered three defeats in a row and this is unacceptable. They are, of course, almost safe from relegation but they will not achieve anything this season once again. Their attack is bad and their defense is even worse at this point, so there is a lot to work on.
