TNS were simply phenomenal in the last several weeks and they have been scoring goals at an impressive rate as well. For sure they have built a huge momentum as a result of these fixtures and they will be determined to keep this trend going on.

They also have won the first leg of this tie, and that too with a clean sheet. Now they have the opportunity to protect this lead in the second leg, and since counterparts Linfield will be forced to go looking for an equalising goal, they will be under pressure.

The New Saints will try to make the most of this opportunity. It also needs to be mentioned that Linfield have been letting in goals in huge numbers lately, and it has been some time since they have registered a win as well.

Going on they also have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years.

For all these reasons, expect a victory for the New Saints this Wednesday.
