Cork City vs UC Dublin
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 11 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turners Cross (Cork).

Taking into account that the Finn Harps are taking on the second-placed Shamrock Rovers, Cork could seal in their safety with a win this Friday. Considering they are at home and are locking horns against the worst of the lot, the basic expectation is for the hosts to come out on top.

  • The Students failed to score in five of these seven clashes.

Cork City vs UC Dublin Prediction

‘The Students’ are easily the worst of the lot, and they are placed dead-bottom in the table. They have so far recorded just 19 points from their 33 fixtures, and have just five wins to show for their efforts. The team has lost an embarrassing 24 games so far.

In addition, the squad has scored the fewest number of goals and conceded the most at 72 too. To quote a stat, only two others have crossed the 50-mark, while none have let in 60 yet.

On the other hand, while Cork is no super-team, they are definitely a far lot better than Dublin. Sure the hosts have problems of their own, but they should appreciate the opportunity to ensure their safety with a tie against the worst side in the competition.

Moreover, previous h2h clashes too point the finger towards the Rebel Army. Count on them to make the most of this battle, and put in a valiant performance.
