Lillestrom vs SJK
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Åråsen Stadion.
Lillestrom had shown amazing composure in securing a top-4 finish the last season in the competitive Norwegian top flight. It was a must for them as they were aiming for an entry into one of the European competitions. They will be eager to try their luck against the inconsistent SJK this Thursday.
SJK had to settle for a 4th place finish in the Finnish top flight at the end of the regular season. They had remained winless in half of their fixtures and all along they had let in goals in huge numbers.
In fact, it has been some time that they have been trying to improve their defense at any cost, but unfortunately they have been unable to make it work. And particularly on the road they have been a mess for quite some time as well.
And now on top of that, they even lost the first leg and that too in front of their home crowd. Which means they will have to overturn this one-goal deficit this coming Thursday on the road against a better team, who will also be hugely motivated.
Lillestrom are on a winning streak at the moment and are finding the back of the net consistently. They have also been on a good run at home for quite some time now and have found the back of the net in plenty during this stretch.
By the looks of things expect a victory 4 Lillestrom this Thursday.
