Cork VS Progrès

Preview
Cork City and Progrès Niedercorn face at Turner's Cross, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Cork City

The home team makes its debut in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive result, using the home advantage in their favour. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got a home loss against Preston North End by (0‑2). In the last 10 home matches Cork City has won 2, tied 4 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.

Cork City come to this stage of the Europa League after having won the 2nd position of the 2018 Ireland Championship. However, in the current season, the hosts have presented several difficulties and occupy at the moment 7th position, with only 26 points conquered. In this home game, coach John Cotter should line up in the usual tactical system, the 4-3-3, being Graham Cummins the man responsible for tormenting the opponent's line of defense. On the other hand, it is inevitable to highlight the quality of the right-winger Conor McCormack: this player is very fast and strong in the 1-1. The whole squad is available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: M. McNulty, C. Horgan, D. Casey, C. McCarthy, S. McLoughlin, R. Hurley, G. Buckley, C. McCormack, G. Morrissey, K. Sheppard, J. Coustrain.

Analysis of Progrès Niedercorn

The away team comes to this stage of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round) after a away loss by (2‑1) and a home win by (1‑0) against Cardiff MU. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 29 conceded; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 30 goals scored and 13 conceded. In the last 10 away matches Progrès Niedercorn has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 7 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 6 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

Progrès Niedercorn come to this game with a 2-1 away loss to Cardiff MU, in a match to count for the UEFA Europa League second qualifying round. Despite the defeat, the visitors managed to advance in the competition, as they scored a goal away and had won 1-0 at home. We remember that Progrès arrived at this Europa League due to the conquest of the 4th position of the 2018/2019 Luxembourg Championship. In this match against Cork City, a very technical and tactical opponent, coach Roland Vrabec should keep a more defensive team, with successive counterattacks, looking for the most advanced Mayron de Almeida on most occasions. The whole squad is available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Flauss, M. Karayer, A. Skenderovic, T. Hall, B. Vogel, T. Laterza, S. Thill, C. Silaj, B. Muratovic, M. De Almeida, K. Tekiela.

Betting suggestion:

The markets of this game are giving a lot of importance to the home factor and we agree with that. In spite of the current phase, Cork City have shown great competence in the different moments of play, and to play at home, should dominate and hold the best chances of goals. On the other hand, Progrès Niedercorn usually practice a very direct football, but that will not be enough in this game. Having said that, Cork City have all the conditions to conquer a positive result in this first leg.
