Kick-off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Breidablik from Iceland will play host to the Montenegrin Buducnost in a match of their first-leg of Europa Conference League Qualification – quarter finals. These two sides will be seen battling it out at Kópavogsvöllu, this Thursday hoping to advance into the semis.
The 2009 Icelandic Cup win qualified Breidablik for their first ever European competition, entering the second qualifying round of the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League. They now come here on the back of a 5-1 aggregate win over UE Santa Coloma in the fist ECL qualifiers.
The hosts are hoping to win again following the 2-3 Urvalsdeild victory against Keflavík. Their latest results show that much solidity has been shown by the their defence with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past 6 games stands just four.
On the other side, Buducnost finished first in 2020/21 Montenegrin First League, with many all-time records. They took the biggest number of earned points with 85, registering highest number of wins being 27 and the longest unbeaten run to 23 games. The side has won 5 Montenegrin First League titles and 3 Montenegrin Cups so far.
Previously, the visitors drew 2-2 in the Europa Conference League Qualifiers match with Llapi. They have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 15 goals overall. Defensively, they seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Both these sides had never crossed paths each other and this will be their first ever encounter.
Breidablik vs Buducnost Prediction
Breidablik is currently on a 7-game unbeaten run and the side won the last 3 games in a row coming here. They have reached the third round of qualifying on 3 occasions, beaten by Aktobe and Aberdeen last season. At home, they have been magnificent, winning the last 11 games in succession, scoring at least thrice in all.
Meanwhile, the visitors have never gone beyond the third round, falling to Brondby in 2010 and Sarajevo a decade later. They have not won a game since their past 5 away fixtures and have won just one game from their last 5 fixtures played across various competitions.
Considering their incredible home form, we feel that a home win is likely to occur this Thursday.
