Cork City vs Waterford Prediction & Match Preview

Cork City vs Waterford FC
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Monday, 2 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turners Cross (Cork).

Waterford has entered a period of struggle, that at the moment, they remain one of only two teams in the competition to have lost each one of their previous four games in the league, along with the absolute worst, Dublin.

On top of this terrible run, the squad is on the road this Monday, and for sure will be dreading this trip.

But one thing that gives them hope in the form of Cork City at the Turners Cross. By all means, the hosts for the day is easily the weakest of all ten in front of their home crowd. Even UC Dublin has been comparatively far better at their home.

Cork City vs Waterford FC Prediction

A brief glance into h2h stats, and we can see that City takes the upper hand in this fixture. They have registered 12 of the last 15 wins in such ties and won six of the last seven meetings at this venue. To improve their confidence further, the team had kept clean sheets along with these six wins too.

Moreover, Waterford is on a four-tie losing run and coupled with their history at this stadium, the chances for them winning is very low.

Coming to goals, Cork has been the worst in front of the home crowd of all the ten squads in contention. Not just that, but they have failed to score goals in four of their prior five home ties, and in two of the former three h2h clashes.

With this information in mind, it’s ideal to place money on this one being a low goal-scoring affair.
