Shamrock Rovers vs Cork City – Irish Premier Division: Far from the top 3 of the competition, they are on a moment of form that is going from bad to worse
They have only gotten 1 win in 8 matches but that can get even worse, because they will still have a very tough match against the leaders of the competition here.
However, a victory against a qualified team might give some motivation to their roster, that right now is sleepy and unable to respond.
To make matters worse, they were defeated even by teams that were below them on the league table on that period.
The leader comes into this match trying to increase their advantage over the 2nd place, since they only have a 3-points advantage.
Three teams have the best attack of the competition, and amongst them there is Cork City, that combines efficient attack with a well-posted defence.
That results on a balanced team capable of winning even away from home. Thanks to that, they have the best visiting record of the competition with 13 points conquered away from home.

Shamrock Rovers vs Cork City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this match, we find both sides of the coin. Shamrock is going through hell, being on a very negative streak and far from the top 3.
As for the visitors, they are motivated and are looking to get even more points, and for that, they count with their good performances away from home.
On the head-to-head record, Cork City has been getting more victories since 2015 and this season, they have plenty of reasons to continue having that advantage.
The last match was won by Cork City, that this season is fighting for a higher objective that is the title. Meanwhile, the home side is trying to pick up the pieces of a beyond awful streak.
With that, I have reasons to believe that the visitors are qualified to leave this match with the victory and 3 more points on the league table.
