Cork City vs Galway United
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 28th July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turner’s Cross.
Cork City are enjoying an invincible season in the top flight of the Irish football as they have clinched 20 wins and a draw in 21 league matches.
The Rebel Army will be looking to continue the hot run of form on Friday when they host the relegation-threatened Galway United at their Turner’s Cross.
John Caulfield’s men are out of Europa League as Cypriot AEK Larnaca were too strong of a rival in the third qualifying round.
However, this is bad news for the Irish Premier Division teams since the Rebel Army will now be fully focused on breaking the record and continuing the amazing run.
Cork City have an incredible goal differential of 57-10 and they have bagged at least four goals in five of their last six Premier Division outings at Tuner’s Cross.
The Tribesmen have been enjoying a hot run of form of their own as back-to-back wins Limerick and Drogheda United see the team escaping the very foot of the standings.
However, Shane Keegan’s men seem to be a completely different team when they play away from Eamonn Deacy Park.
Galway United are winless in last 21 matches on the road in Premier Division and it is obvious that they do not have much to hope for against the leaders.
Cork City vs Galway United: Head to head
The Rebel Army have entirely dominated this match-up winning six and drawing two of their eight previous H2H encounters with Galway United.
Moreover, the Tribesmen have never managed to leave Turner’s Cross undefeated.
