  • Last season, Derry City was only 3 points away from the Europa League qualifying round when she got 57 points after 15 wins, 12 draws and 9 losses, an achievement that is arguably quite good for this team. But in this year’s tournament, they are disappointed when they only got 8 points after 2 wins, 2 draws and lost 4 matches, even the last 5 matches they lost 3, drew 1 and only win St. Patrick’s. 
  • Thus, since the tournament returned after being postponed due to the global epidemic, coach Kenny Shiels and his students have gone through 4 rounds and only got 4 points, of which the worse is that they all lost at 2 home matches.


  • Cork City is not in bad form when they are unbeaten in the last 3 consecutive matches, in which they take 4 points after 1 win and 1 draw in the last 2 rounds, the other they overcame Longford Town in a match. In the FAI Cup match, it is worth mentioning that the goal came after they received a red card in the 77th minute. 
  • In the previous round, the Turners Cross home team had a jubilant 3-1 victory over SligoRovers, the team in high form when they won 2 consecutive rounds before, it is worth mentioning that there is a 2-0 victory at Derry City’s own field. Cork City’s away record is very bad when the last 9 official matches they have not won once, in which they lost 8.



  • Although not in good form, in front of an opponent that is said to be very favorite when Derry City won the last 3 meetings with a difference of 2 goals or more, the closest one is a victory 4-0 at home will also help them become more confident. In addition, if counted further, Derry City’s home performance is not bad when they have won 4, drew 1 and lost only 2 in the last 7 matches. Therefore, the ability of the couple to win is quite feasible.
  • Derry City vs Cork City prediction: Derry City -1


  • Since the tournament returned after the pandemic, Derry City has gone through 4 rounds and scored only 4 goals, while the defense of Cork City is having efficiency when all of the last 3 matches they have kept a clean sheet, but the attack is pretty bad when it fuses in 3/4 matches recently. 
  • In addition, statistics also show that, in the last 4 clashes between these two teams, Cork City only had 1 goal, which was a 1-4 match in the first leg of last season at home. So, choosing Under is more grounded.
  • Select: Under 2.1/4

  • Also with a roster that hasn’t changed much of the two teams but last season Derry City won this opponent 4-1 away in the first leg and 4-0 in the return home leg, that is. More or less shows that this is a very charming opponent with the home team and also shows that the level of the two teams is not a small difference. Also last season, Cork City was 20 points behind this opponent after 36 matches. So, the above bet will be a wise decision.
