Dinamo Tbilisi vs KF Tirana
Champions League 2020/21 (First qualifying round)
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.
The Blue Whites are coming into this match after their recent league draw against Telavi. They have not been defeated in four previous matches on the trot. When these two met back in 2003, they won the home leg easily scoring three and keeping a clean sheet as well. But they fell apart in the reverse leg giving away the three goal lead and finally losing in penalties.
The away squad won their league title but had some disappointing performances late in that campaign. Currently they are winless in four previous away games on the trot. So they will need a miracle to progress to the next round.
Dinamo Tbilisi vs KF Tirana: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two have met in the qualifiers two previous head to head games back in 2003.
- Both teams have a win each in those two games in normal time.
- Tbilisi progressed to the next round after the second leg which they won on penalties.
Dinamo Tbilisi vs KF Tirana: Prediction
If the head to head history can be taken into account the home team will be the favourites on Wednesday. They have been excellent in their current league season and have only lost once at home so far.
The reason why they were crowned champions last year around was mainly because of their home season. On the other side Tirana are on a losing streak in matches on the road in both league and Cup. So I think it will be an easy win for the home team.
The hosts have done well in defence in their recent games. In their last five games at home they have conceded only three goals but scored seven in return. Meantime, Tirana hardly trouble the score card in two recent away games.
In the only clash at this ground, the home team also kept a clean sheet. So I am backing the hosts to win with only one team getting the goals.
