Birkirkara vs Ki Klaksvik
2018/19 Europa League Preliminary
Date: Thursday, 28 June 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: MFA Centenary Stadium (TA’Qali).
In the first leg match of the Europa League Preliminary Round, Birkirkara are going to search for the advantage against Klaksvik.
Home side finished the season at 4th spot, and they managed to catch the last train for the Europa League qualifiers. Their form declined in the last rounds as they suffered three defeats in five matches. Luca Montebello and the lads have been fairly productive, while their work in the back was pretty decent. Birkirkara suffered only three defeats when playing in front of the home crowd and I don’t see it happening against Klasvik too.
Klaksvik are in the middle of their campaign in the national championship and they are challenging the top spot. They are enjoying an excellent streak of five straight wins and during that period Mikkjal Thomassen’s side conceded only once. The visitors have suffered only one defeat at away grounds this season, which makes them the best away side in the league.
Birkirkara vs Ki Klaksvik Head-to-head
Although they have been participating in European cups pretty often, these two sides didn’t have the chance to face each other earlier.
Birkirkara vs Ki Klaksvik Prediction
Although the hosts have just finished their pre-season activities, they are slight favourites in this one. Two seasons ago, they managed to successfully skip two rounds and they were stopped by Krasnodar on their third step.
This one might be a tight clash as the visitors are very good in the back and they will focus on defending their goal in order to get back home with the best possible result. This one could easily stay under 2.5 margin. A bit more adventurous punters can also go with Under 1.5 FT and BTTS NO options.
