Cork City vs FCI Levadia Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Cork City will be looking for another victory when they welcome Levadia Tallinn at the Turner’s Cross for the second leg of their Europa League first round qualifying tie. Cork managed a comfortable 0-2 away win in Estonia last week thanks to goals from Garry Buckley and Steven Beattie. Levadia have played in ten men since the 42nd minute and failed to deliver a single shot on target. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m expecting Cork to pick up another victory here as their home form over the past year has been excellent. They are undefeated in 19 home fixtures and have scored at least two goals in 17 of these. This having been said, I’m backing Cork to win and to score a couple of goals in this one.

Cork City Preview

Cork City come into this clash on the back of an unbelievable 25-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning 23 of these. Cork have been dominating the Ireland Premier Division this season as they currently sit on top of the table with 12 points clear of the second-placed Dundalk. They looked impeccable at both ends of the field throughout their domestic campaign, scoring 54 goals and conceding just ten after 19 rounds. Sean Maguire has been in fantastic shape throughout this season, helping the team with 18 goals in his 19 league appearances. The Irish team are already with a foot in the second qualifying round where they will face AEK Larnaca. Cork managed to reach the third qualifying round last season, but they were beaten by the eventual quarterfinalists Genk. They should have no problems in picking up another victory here as their home form over the past year has been amazing. They are currently on a 19-game unbeaten streak at home, winning 17 of these. Furthermore, Cork managed to score at least four goals in each of their last four home games.

Cork City Team News

Sean Maguire and Kevin O’Connor made the move to Preston North End, but they are not leaving until the end of this month, so they should be able to play in this clash.

FCI Levadia Preview

Levadia Tallinn were on a 24-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 0-2 home loss at the hands of Cork City last week. Luc Landry Tabi Manga was sent off in the 42th minute and they allowed the opening goal one minute later. Levadia tried to find the equaliser, but eventually, they were caught on the break and conceded another one with just one minute to go. Levadia were very close qualifying for the third qualifying round last year, but they were knocked out in the second round by Slavia Prague due to the away goal rule. Levadia have enjoyed a solid campaign domestically as they currently sit in second in the Meistriliiga table, just four points off the current leaders Flora. They managed an amazing tally of 48 goals in 17 rounds this season, but they haven’t been able to deliver a single shot on target against Cork City last week. Rimo Hunt is Levadia’s topscorer at the moment with eleven goals in his 17 league appearances. The good thing is that Levadia are undefeated in their last 13 away games across all competitions, conceding just eight goals in the process. The bad news is that Levadia have only won once in their last nine European away games, while losing seven.
