Antwerp vs Lillestrom
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Antwerp are from the Belgian top flight and they have been phenomenal lately in their last several match-days. They are finding the back of the net in plenty and are also in front of their home crowd this Thursday. Meanwhile, Lillestrom are finding it hard to show consistency in their performances.
They are from the rather weak Norwegian top flight and lately their defense has not at all been top-notch. Moreover, they have also consistently let in goals in their road games in the past few weeks.
Meanwhile, Antwerp registered a 1-3 win on the road in the first leg and now they have the luxury to play in front of their home crowd, with a 2-goal lead in aggregate. Not only will this give them confidence but they also will be able to concentrate more on defense.
In the meanwhile, Lillestrom will have to go after goals right from the get go and this will understandably weaken their back line. The in-form Belgian hosts will only be happy to take advantage of these spaces at the back.
By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Antwerp this Thursday at their home.

Antwerp vs Lillestrom Prediction & Analysis
Antwerp are on a 5-game winning streak and they had also remained unbeaten in their past 12 fixtures. In the process they had also gone on another 4-game winning stretch.
Do also take into account the fact that they had scored two or more goals in 9 of their past 11 overall matches.
On the other hand, Lillestrom are winless in their past two games and they had let in a total of 4 goals in the process. And most importantly they will have to overcome a two-goal deficit away from home and that too against and in-form team.
By the looks of things, it is expected that Antwerp will take advantage of the pressure Lillestrom are under, and will deliver another victory this Thursday.
