KR Reykjavik vs Pogon Szczecin
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 14 July 2022
Kick-off at 19:15 UK / 20:15 CET
KR play host to Pogon Szczecin in a match of their second-leg of Europa Conference League Qualification. Having an impressive lead in the first-leg, the Polish side will be keen to hold onto that while battling it out with the Iceland side at KR-völlur, this Thursday.
A week ago, the Pogon Szczecin cruised to a remarkable 4-1 home victory with the help of Kamil Drygas bagging a brace, Luka Zahovic and Jakub Bartkowski also finding the ball in the back of the net. Aron Kristófer Lárusson did pull one back in the second half for KR, keeping the first-leg not to end in a one-sided affair.
Pogon approaches the competition in good condition, and so far everything is moving towards the fact that at the initial stage there is no tangible problems. Last season, they did not perform very impressively but now they have been impressive both at home and on road.
On the other side, Reykjavik is doing much worse, this time around. The squad successfully selected for the quarterfinals of the cup competitions, and in the domestic championship suffered crushing defeats from Breidablik and Vikingur, conceding a total of 7 goals while not being able to net at least once.
Fixtures involving the home side have usually been lively affairs of late with plenty of scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past 6 clashes, the sum total of 25 goals have been recorded for both sides combined with just 8 of those being chalked up by KR.

KR Reykjavik vs Pogon Szczecin Prediction
The visitors have been displaying positive results lately with the side currently on a 6-game unbeaten run across various competitions. Pogon Szczecin have also been remarkable on road where they have not lost in the last 15 games played.
Meanwhile, KR won just once from their last 6 home league matches. They even conceded 7 goals from their last 3 home matches alone and that gives the picture of their weak defense.
Having a 3-goal lead, the visitors are likely to enter into the second qualifying round this Thursday.
