Waterford FC vs Cork City
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Regional Sports Centre (Waterford).

Waterford is on a two-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 0-1 away win against Shelbourne last time out in the schedule. Two of their overall three wins so far came away from home.

The host had three straight home matches in the league schedule, and it took them the third game to find their form at home.

Four of the Cork City’s five fixtures in the league until now have ended in a defeat. Besides, all their losses have been accompanied with giving away a clean sheet.

So, we can assume that the Rebel Army has problems at both offense and defense. They are on a two-game losing streak in the campaign and will visit after a 0-1 loss at home against Bohemians.

Waterford FC vs Cork City Head-to-head (h2h)

Waterford FC vs Cork City Prediction

Waterford has started their season in a decent form in the campaign, but two of their three home matches so far have ended in a defeat. So, a draw no bet will be a better option than the home win.

Since the loss has come against stronger sides in the league, John Sheridan will not worry much about his team’s performance. To the gaffer’s comfort, the visiting side is at the rock bottom of the table.

Cork City has scored only one goal and has lost all four clashes so far with a clean sheet. The host has averaged 0.9 goals in the league. The teams have scored at least 2 goals in all their last 15 h2h clashes.

The tip for over 1.5 goals will thus come in handy considering that the visitors will probably open up their defense for the host during most of the match with their current form in the campaign.
