Match: St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Cork City Competition: Ireland – Premier Division Time / Date: 21:45h / 25 May 2018 Venue: Richmond Park
Richmond Park will host the game between fifth in the standing St Patrick’s and second Cork City, is there any chances for the home team?
The Saints are one of the most dangerous teams in fifth place in the four-point position behind Cork City, their home games are something they can be proud of so far having only one loss and managed to score 20 goals an allowing only 7 while retaining 67% of clean nets. In this match, it will be difficult but will not be given without a fight.
But on the other side, champions from last year have no right to make mistakes, and John Caulfield knows it very well. Rabel Army are the second best guest and have won 17 points out of 30 possible.
No missing players
Cork has a huge advantage in the h2h meetings as in the last 13 games have only two losses and everything else has won for them. As these two wins of Patrick’s are like hosts and in the last 6 games have 2 wins and four losses.
Cork will have a very difficult test, having only two wins (1D, 1L) in the last four games and in that period twice failed to score. On the other hand, the hosts perform greatly in front of their own public, with eight games without a loss and in the last four scored two or more goals, I would bet on a home win or at least a draw.
