Cork City are nowhere close to the form they had in the last couple of seasons. This squad usually battled with Dundalk FC for the title in Irish Premier Division, while having great win rate at home. This is not the case in this campaign. The squad is sitting in poor 7th position after 24 matches, having collected only 26 points. Can potentially good performance in Europa League shift the things around for them? Bookies have marked hosts as big favorites for the win at 3/4 odds.
Cork City are having massive troubles to score in the current season. They bagged only 19 goals in 24 games, so we might see another low scoring affair on Thursday. Cork had 11 appearances in front of the home crowd so far, scoring only eight goals and conceding 13. That is an average of 2.10 goals per match in Irish division.
There is no doubt that Progres Niederkorn are coming north to park the bus. This squad has solid results when it comes to defending. In a combination with poor efficiency for the hosts, we feel confident to back the Under 2.5 bet here as the tip of the day. The current price is at 1.80. 14 out of the last 15 matches for Cork City ended with two goals or less. As for their opponents, Progres ended 6 out of their last 8 Europa League matches with Under 2.5 FT.
