Bohemians vs F91 Dudelange
UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifications,
Date: Thursday, 29 July 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Aviva Stadium.
It’s all wide open ahead of the reverse fixture of the UEFA Europa Conference League second qualifying round tie between Bohemians and F91 Dudelange. Can the Irish outfit preserve a one-goal advantage and progress to the next round?
Bohemians have never reached the third qualifying round of any European competition.
They have a great opportunity to make history this year after grabbing a 0-1 victory in the first leg of the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League against F91 Dudelange.
However, Keith Long and his men have a long way to go in the remaining 90minutes of the tie. They should b no means underestimate the Luxembourg’s outfit here.
F91 Dudelange have a much more reputable European experience than Bohemians. The Luxembourg’s team featured the group phase of the UEFA Europa League in back-to-back years in 2018/19 and 2019/20.
They failed to qualify for European spots at all last year, but the team returned to the big scene by clinching the runners-up place in the previous term of Luxembourg’s Premier League.
The problem for Carlos Fangueiro’s troops in this specific matchup is the lack of competitive games at this part of the year.
While Bohemians are midway through the season in the top flight of Irish football, F91 Dudelange have not played a competitive affair since May.
This can make a big difference in the clash between two similarly-matched outfits.

Bohemians vs Dudelange Prediction
The tension will be sky-high on Thursday evening at Aviva Stadium as Bohemians have an opportunity to write history. The hosts will likely take a conservative approach, sit at the back, and wait for their chances from counter-attacks.
Since we haven’t seen much from the attacking perspective from either of the two teams in the first leg, the Under 2.5 goals FT seems to be the best betting call here. You can back it at the odds of 2.00.
