Glentoran vs HB Torshavn
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: The Oval (Belfast).
The Europa qualifiers on Thursday will see the Northern Ireland contingents lock horns with HB Torshavn from the Faroe island.
The Glens finished at the 5th spot in NIFL Premiership and made their way into the chance for a Europa League seat. Meanwhile, Havnar Boltfelag was at the fourth spot in the Faroe Islands Premier League table last season.
The host hasn’t been in the middle lately in their schedule, other than the Irish Cup fixtures, since the NIFL Premiership is yet to start for them.
They shared the spoils in both their fixtures post lockdown in the Irish Cup, following a 1-1 draw on the road against Ballymena last time out.
HB Torshavn will come in hot with their eight-game winning streak in the Faroe Islands Premier League schedule this season. They are currently leading the campaign table with 46 points from their 17 appearances until now.
They will visit on the back of a massive 11-0 win at home against Argir in their PL clash.

Glentoran vs HB Torshavn Prediction
Glentoran is a tough team to beat at home, but their recent home matches have seen them make a slip up despite having the ground advantage in the game. Their last three NIFL home matches didn’t turn in their favor, and it will probably affect their form against HB.
HB Torshavn is a strong side and has improved their form in the domestic league from the fourth spot last season to leading the table midway of the new edition. Their away form in the records also points to an away win in ninety minutes.
The draw no bet over HB Torshavn will probably be the best bet in the encounter. Another suitable option for the punters will be a BTTS in the game, considering both teams are putting up a strong fight for the Europa spot.
