Linfield vs La Fiorita Montegiardino
2017/18 UEFA Champions League Qualifiers
Date: Wednesday, 28th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Windsor Park.
Linfield will start their European adventure and the new season with the first round of Champions League qualifications clash against La Fiorota.
Both teams belong to the lowest class of the club European football, but the hosts will be massive favourites to storm past the champions of San Marino.
The Blues finally ended Glentoran’s domination in the top flight of the Northern Irish football as they managed to claim the first title in five years.
The team led by David Healy ended the season with an impressive record of 27 wins, eight draws and only three losses to stay two points above their arch-rivals and secure their spot in the first qualifying round of Champions League.
La Fiorita have made a similar achievement in San Marino as they took their second title in team’s history in the last term of their domestic competition.
Luigi Bizzotto’s men will try to score their first goal in the most elite football competition in Europe as they failed to do so in July 2014 when they easily lost both legs to Levadia Tallinn (8-0 on aggregate).

The two teams have not had the chance to meet each other so far.
Linfield vs La Fiorita: Prediction
Linfield kept their star men from the last season and going past La Fiorita will be the minimum of requirements for Healy and his men.
The Northern Irish champions are clear favourites both on the night and over two legs and we expect them to close the tie after the first leg this Wednesday at Windsor Park.
