Cork City pursues a new victory in the Irish elite

Cork City heads the Irish Premier League with a 16-point colossal lead. On Friday, the team welcomes their Turners Cross Galway United.

Cork City can hardly be removed from the first place, as apart from the huge difference on the top, the team has two games less than the current Dundolk champion, who takes second place.

The impressive lead of the team is mainly due to the fact that the team has won 20 of its 21 matches in the championship. The upcoming meeting, however, gives us a curious fact - Galway United is the only team that has managed to leave unbeaten after his fight with Cork City this season.

The hosts scored a great home game this season after winning their last 17 games, scoring 2 or more goals in 16 of them.

A negative impact on the champions in the championship could result in a minimal loss of 1-0, which the team suffered from the Cypriot AEK Larnaca, which led to a 2-0 draw in the Europa League tournament.

Galway United currently holds the first position in the relegation zone, but with a repeat of the first-round result between the two teams, he will get out of the danger zone, thanks to his better goal difference. Over the past few games, the team has improved its shape and won two consecutive wins.
