The current champions won’t manage to defend their title as their poor form in the latest rounds kicked them out of the race. In the last five rounds, Cork City snatched just two points and they are currently 12 points behind Dundalk.

Graham Cummins and the lads have been one of the most productive side in the competition, while their defence is doing a good job. They have been unbeatable when playing in front of home fans, but in the last two matches, they suffered two losses.

Limerick are having a disappointing season and they are going to try to keep their place in the top flight through the relegation playout. They suffered four defeats in the last five rounds and are the second worst team in the league.

Tommy Barret’s side has severe troubles in converting their chances into goals as they are one of the most inefficient teams in the competition. On the other hand, their defence is leaking too much, and the visitors need to focus on the preparation for the decisive battles for the place in the Premier Division.

Cork City vs Limerick: Head-to-head

  • Cork City bagged 12 wins from the last 15 head-to-head matches against Limerick, drew twice and lost just once.
  • Both teams scored in 4 of their last 6 h2h meetings.
  • Nine out of 10 Cork City’s home games against Limerick saw over 2.5 goals, exactly 8 of those registered over 3.5.

Cork City vs Limerick: Prediction

Home side should break their negative streak and get back on winning track although they cannot improve their position. Cork City should be able to secure their advantage already in the first half of the game.

Since the hosts have been excellent in the front and Limerick are conceding a lot of goals, we should expect an efficient clash. Although it was not the case in some previous clashes, this one should go over 3.5 margin.

Cork City vs Limerick: Bet Tips

  • HT/FT – Cork/Cork @ 2/3 (1.67)
  • Over 3.5 match goals @ 11/10 (2.10)
