Bangor vs Lyngby
Europa League qualifier
Date: Thursday, 6th July 2017
Kick off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Bangor University Stadium.
Lyngby will bring only a one-goal cushion to the second leg of their first qualifying round of Europa League tie with half-amateur team of Bangor City.
The Danes completely dominated the pitch in the first leg with 18 shots and 123 corners, but still it was only Bror Blume’s goal that made the difference ahead of the rematch at Bangor University Stadium.
The hosts barely fought out to the place in the European competition as they had to go through Europa League playoffs after coming fourth at the end of the regular season in Premier League.
Kevin Nicholson’s men suffered a 3-1 loss to Coleraine of Northern Ireland in the pre.-season friendly and nothing suggested that they could avoid a catastrophe at the visit to Lyngby Stadion.
The Danes had a super strong finish to their Superligen campaign in the last season when they picked up five consecutive wins to clinch the third position.
The tremendous run included a 3-1 win over Copenhagen and consecutive away wins to the likes of Brondby and Midtjylland.
The team led by David Nielsen is significantly weaker in the defense in comparison to the last season, but this should not play a role in matches with the Welsh side.
Bangor vs Lyngby: Head to head
Even though Blume opened the scoring for the hosts 13 minutes in the game, Lyngby failed to deliver more in the final third which makes them to give their best in the second leg this Thursday at Bangor University Stadium.
Bangor vs Lyngby: Prediction
The gulf in quality is still more than notable and we’d be shocked to see any other scenario but a comfortable win for the Danes here.
