Lillestrom vs Antwerp
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 4 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Åråsen Stadion.
Both Lillestrom and Antwerp are on superb stretch of performances at the moment and both of them also had finished 4th in their respective domestic leagues the last season.
Lillestrom showed real conviction and composure in securing a 4th place finish the last season in the Norwegian top flight.
They had a lead of just one point over the 5th placed team and it was important that they secure a top-4 finish, because only then would they have been able to represent Norway in Europe.
Despite being locked in a fierce title-race till the very end of the campaign, they managed to stay at the top till the end and have been delivering great performances even into this new season.
Antwerp also have a similar story to share. They had finished 4th in the Belgian league table the last season and had a surplus of just one point over the 5th placed squad at the end of the regular season campaign.
They too deserve appreciation for having held on till the very end and they too are in fine form lately.
As these two consistent and offensively-great teams take on each other this Thursday, it is expected that we are about to witness a goal-fest.
