It would be fair to say that Cork City have been struggling on their own patch of late, with eight of their previous ten Division 1 fixtures ending in defeat, and they are currently on a run of four games without a goal as well. Galway had not been in great form on the road themselves prior their next match, but they had still only lost once in seven.
With 15 of the previous 21 Cork City matches at the venue in the Division 1 serving up no more than a couple of goals. This has also been the case in ten of the most recent 15 top-flight fixtures featuring Galway, meaning that more of the same is expected when the two sides meet.
Over the course of their last 21 away matches in the Division 1, Galway have been involved in just five contests in which they have both scored and conceded during the same 91 minutes. What’s more, 13 of the previous 18 Cork City games at this level have seen at least one of the two sides pitch a shutout, so it would come as a surprise to see both teams score.
Cork City vs Galway Prediction
Cork City have proven incredibly consistent when it comes to their involvement in the Division 1 fixtures containing under 2.5 goals, with 15 of their last 17 contests subscribing to this particular scoring model. This has also been the case in 17 of the previous 20 Galway away games at this level, so a repeat performance is expected.
