Cliftonville vs Barry Town
Europe- Europa League Qualification Preliminary Round
Date: Thursday, 4 July 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Solitude (Belfast).
The teams were inseparable in the first leg clash, with the match ending in a stalemate at the end of the ninety minutes. With Cliftonville failing to find a crucial away goal in their trip on the road, the squad will be looking to ensure that their opponents do not get their name on the score sheet at any cost.
The home side enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in that game and finished the match with thirteen attempts at goal, out of which two were on target. Their counterparts, on the other hand, were far from convincing in the attacking third and failed to get a single shot on target in the entire ninety minutes.
The hosts will certainly have the game in the bag if they can be a lot more lethal and a lot less wasteful of the chances that they create in the eighteen-yard box. The visitors are unlikely to cause an upset to the home side considering both their dismal performance in their previous clash and the subpar form that they have been on, on the road.

Cliftonville vs Barry Town Prediction
Despite the home side missing out on the chance to tuck an important away goal under their belt, Cliftonville are still the favorites to come out on top in the return leg clash at the Solitude.
The hosts are undefeated in their last ten matches at home, with their last two wins coming on penalties after extra time. The squad have also managed to keep two clean sheets in their last five matches, which certainly reiterates the possibility of a positive outcome for the home side on Thursday.
The away team have just one win in their last five trips on the road and have succumbed to a loss on three occasions.
Considering their poor run of form, we can certainly rule out the visitor’s chances of finding the back the net and are more than likely to be handed a defeat.
