The hosts slipped down to the 2nd place after losing in the derby match against Dundalk last week. They were so close of snatching a point, however Sean McLoughlin scored an own goal deep in the stoppage time.

They are now two points behind the top spot and they are going to keep challenging the title. Cork City have been very good in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence did very well so far. Home side hasn’t allowed a single point to their opponents when playing at their ground.

Shamrock Rovers are sitting on the 4th spot and they are seven points behind the third placed Waterford. They have been in a variable form all season long, but they managed to tie three straight victories.

Stephen Bradley’s side is doing a good job in the front, while they need to be tighter in the back. The visitors are not putting so good displays when playing away from home as they managed to snatch just two wins from away pitches so far.

Cork City v Shamrock Rovers: Head-to-head

Although Cork City celebrated four times in five clashes, in the last four occasions their rivals managed to book three victories. Their clashes are moderate scoring ones and in the last tow the visiting team failed to score.

Cork City vs Shamrock Rovers: Prediction

Both sides are in a very good form, despite the home side’s defeat in the latest round and this one should be a very exciting clash. However, Cork City are closer to snatching another win in front of the home crowd and they shouldn’t allow the visitors to get anything from this one.

Since both sides have been involved in high scoring matches recently, it wouldn’t be surprising if this one goes above 2.5 margin. Both sides are searching for the points here and should be able to be productive enough.
