Cork City vs Bohemian FC
Ireland- Premier Division
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Turners Cross (Cork).
Despite finishing the game with the same number of attempts at goal as their opponents, Cork City endured a landslide loss in their last home match against Derry City with the score reading 4-1 in favor of the latter at the end of the ninety minutes.
The hosts failed to find the back of the net with their three shots that were on target and were unable to get a hold of the major share of ball possession in that game as well. The squad certainly squandered their chances of at least reducing the deficit and will be hoping to put on a much better performance when they clash with the Bohemians on Thursday.
The visitors have been faring a lot better than the home side, and have succumbed to just one loss in their last five games on the road. Their most recent away game finished 2-1 in favor of the away side, with the visitors grabbing the winning goal in the 90+3rd minute of the game.
The hosts are currently eight in the table with twenty-three points while the away side are on third with forty-one points.

Cork City vs Bohemian FC Prediction
The visitors are poised to take the win and the three points that come with it when the squads clash against each other at the Turner Cross this week.
The home side have just one win in their last five games, with the other four ending in two draws and two losses. Their recent results certainly indicate that the squad have not been lethal in the final third and have been wasteful of the opportunities that they create.
The visitors have been on a much better run on form in their previous five away fixtures, and have three clear wins to their name.
Considering that the hosts have been consistent in scoring at least a goal in their last two fixtures on home soil, we can certainly expect them to grab a consolation goal while the win is certain to be safely in the hands of the visitors by the end of the ninety minutes.
