Europa League 2nd round tips & previews
The temporary topscorer of this Europa League Qualifiers is Ivan Trickovsky, the AEK Larnaca striker. He has scored 5 goals and he is ready to give his team another win in the home match vs
Cliftonville, already beaten 2-3 in the 1st leg.
Goteborg has adopted a very offensive gamestyle: after 6 OVER 2.5 in a row, they drew 1-1 vs Elfsborg in the last Swedish League round. After the 1st leg ended 0-3, Jorgen Lennartsson will probably get another win probably scoring a good amount of goals vs the modest Piast (Poland).
Few days ago KR Reykjavik stopped Grasshoppers with a stunning 3-3 draw: the first half saw Icelandic side conceding 2 goals, but they successfully recovered the gap in the second half, before conceding the 3rd goal and finding the equalizer 13' before the end.
That happened in Iceland but Swiss side should get the ticket for the next round, considering also that KR Reykjavik currently occupy the third to last position in their national league.
Qabala is trying to join the Group Stage again, after last year experience when they faced important clubs such as Borussia Dortmund, FK Krasnodar and Paok Thessaloniki. The experience gained has surely helped them and in our opinion they will have the best vs MTK Budapest (1st leg saw Qabala prevail on the road 1-2).
Midtjylland has dominated the 1st leg vs Vaduz. Vaduz struggled a lot to contain the opponents in Denmark on last Thursday and got away with a 3-0 loss. The 2nd leg should have a similar trend.
Cukaricki-Videoton is expected to be a very hard fought clash. Home team is forced to adopt an offensive mentality in order to recover the 2 goals gap after the 1st leg. We like BTTS here.
Hajduk Split showed a clear superiority in the 1st leg vs Municipal Studentesc Iasi (Romania) although the result was only a 2-2 draw.
We believe croatian side will get the access to the next round having already scored 2 goals on the way. They will probably stay on the defensive trying to hit counterattacking.
Stomgodset has won the latest 9 official matches played at home: Norwegians lost 2-1 in Denmark vs Sonderjyske. Will they get the 10th win in a row in home matches? Mission possible.
Also Slavia Praha is called to recover the 3-1 defeat in Estonia vs Levadia. Slavia need at least a 2 goals gap win and we like OVER 2.5 here.
