Shelbourne vs Cork City
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Tolka Park (Dublin).
Tolka Park will welcome the bottom dweller Cork City in the league table this season as it stands, for an encounter with Shelbourne in the Irish Premier Division.
The promoted side will host with a three-game winless streak in the campaign, following a goalless draw with the table leaders Shamrock Rovers in the schedule.
However, Cork City is in a far worse condition than the Shels in the league this season. With just two wins so far, the Rebel Army has displayed the worst performance in the mix.
They will visit after a 3-1 loss at home against Sligo Rovers last time out in the league. Four of their recent five fixtures have been winless, and three of them were straight defeats.

Shelbourne vs Cork City Prediction
Despite being a promoted team in the mix, Shelbourne has still managed a four-point lead over the visiting side in the table. Besides, not losing in the last two matches will improve the morale of the home team players with the ground advantage.
Cork City has had more losses in the campaign this season than the Shels. Also, coming on the back of a loss will not be a talking point for the Rebel Army. The draw no bet over Shelbourne will probably be the best bet for the punters along with the tip for over 1.5 goals in full-time.
