Even 43 matches will be played in the UEFA Europa League First Qualifying Round 2nd Leg on Thursday, and in the following article, we will present you our selection of 12 most exciting games of the day. This is the second and final part of our list, so take a look at the next six encounters.
Hapoel Beer Sheva failed to beat Laci in the opening leg as the Albanians held them to a 1-1 draw. Hapoel is a way better and experienced side, and I don’t have the slightest doubt they will get a victory in this one. Still, the 1.17 (-588) odds are unattractive, but given that Laci is without a road win in their previous 14 games, I am backing the hosts to cover the -1.5 spread at 1.53 (-189).
Cork City are visiting Luxembourg to face Niedercorn who defeated them 2-0 in the first leg in Ireland. Niedercorn scored a pair of early goals while Cork City missed from the penalty spot to cut the deficit to half. Cork City recorded only two away wins in the last 11 matches, and I am backing the hosts to get a win at 1.95 (-105). Niedercorn won the previous three games at home without conceding a goal.
Radnicki Nis are facing a tough task when they welcome Flora after losing the opening leg 2-0. The Estonian championship is in full swing and Flora is at the top of the league, winning the last four games in all competitions. The Serbians have better individuals and will have the full support of home fans, and even though it will be hard to qualify to the second round, I am going with the hosts to secure a victory here at 1.40 (-250).
Shamrock Rovers were massive underdogs in the first game against Brann in Norway, but they tied the score in injury time, and now have a solid opportunity to make it through to the second round. Brann are still favorites, and they know they must score at least one goal here to stay alive. On the other hand, Shamrock Rovers will get their chance to make the visitors pay on the counter, and that’s why I expect goals on both sides in this one. Back BTTS at 1.80 (-125).
Pyunik Yerevan and Shkupi provided a lot of excitement and even six goals in a 3-3 first-leg draw, and although I don’t think they will combine for six again, I do expect goals on both ends. Shkupi scored at least two goals in each of the previous four matches while Pyunik found the back of the net in each of the last 16 games. The 1.57 (-175) odds are not high, but BTTS seems like a sure shot.
We’re concluding the UEFA Europa League First Qualifying Round 2nd Leg Betting Preview and Picks with a tilt between Trnava and Radnik Bijeljina. The Bosnians recorded a convincing 2-0 victory at home, and now they are in a commanding position to progress to the next round. Trnava are a dangerous home team and could score two or three goals with ease. It’s going to be a tense game, but I am backing the hosts to win despite the odds dropping from 1.80 (-125) to 1.55 (-182).
