Cork City’s lead at the top is a very shaky one, they are just 2 points ahead of Dundalk fc who has 2 outstanding games. They already secured a European spot as they have 22 points advantage over 3rd place Waterford.

Cork City defeated Waterford 2-1 away from home in their last Premiership game, and also won 5-1 against Home Farm last week in the FAI Cup. However, they have lost back to back to Rosenborg in the Europa League qualifying.

Now they have no Europe distractions, Cork City can focus on domestic competitions and perhaps hold on to this slender lead in the table.

Elsewhere, St Patrick’s are not among the title challengers as they are 30 points behind Cork City. They are among big winners in the weekend FAI Cup as they defeated Inchecore Athletic 5-0 away from home. Prior to this win, they defeated Bray 3-0 at home in the Premiership the previous week.

These successive victories should be a huge boost to St Patrick’s as thy look to get something from this game.

Cork City vs St. Patrick’s Athletic: Prediction

The game will be a tough one for both sides, Cork City are coming from a midweek defeat in the Europa League. While St Patrick’s are coming from an FAI Cup win last weekend.

The home team knows that anything less than a win in this game will dent their slender lead in the table and they will put up a strong fight to keep this lead. We are backing a win for the home side while the both sides gets on the scoreboard
